Another way to mix up dreadlock hairstyles is by having bleached or dyed dreadlocks. Have your hair coloured before I loc it or alternatively, you can color dreads after they are made. In this photo my client had bleached hair and decided to colour the lower half of her dreads. You can also have a half and half style, with your normal hair colour and then bleaching the lengths or even just the dread tips to give blonde or ashy highlights. Bleached hair tends to loc easier as dry hair dreads better than silky hair.
