Hi, I'm Jennifer Hyde. I'm here today to show you how to hide grey in dreadlocks. Grey hair of course is when the hair of course loses its melanin, loses its pigment and becomes translucent in color therefore reflecting back to you as grey or white hairs, wisdom hairs as we like to call them in the industry. So when you have grey hair and your hair is in dreadlocks, there really isn't a way to feed those hairs to the inside of the lock shaping in order to hide them. They are either going to be there or they are not and you can't really pull them out because then you might be left with no hair to make your dreadlock so that would be very very bad. So options that you have for then hiding grey hair within locks would then have to do with possibly stepping up to do a chemical treatment with some color of some sort and of course this can be done by a professional. A lot of hair professionals do color dreadlocks in their salons just like we do at Jekyll and Hyde. So that's easy to find a professional that can help you. If you are going to attempt coloring them yourself in order to hide grey hair inside the locks, then you definitely want to follow all the manufacturer's instructions on that product, making sure that you are doing exactly what the instructions determine from start to finish, timing it properly, rinsing it properly, really making sure that you get out all of that product that's in the lock because you definitely don't want any chemical compounds to hang out after you have done your coloring procedure.
