Modern natural hairstyles prove that you don't have to just wear your dreads down or back in a ponytail. Your natural tresses can be twisted and curled in updos and other styles. Furthermore, natural hair is chemical-free and is in a healthier state to take on dye. So, get wild and funky with your colored dreadlocks!
Red dreadlocks are common because red is a safe color that isn't too light but is different enough to create a cute, interesting look. If you don't want the full red color, it also looks good mixed with natural dark or light hair. Red dye, in any shade, also looks good on any skin complexion when mixed with your natural hair color or another dark color.
Platinum Blonde Dye
If you want to make a bold statement, go really light with platinum blonde. It might be everybody's favorite, but not everyone can pull it off. Darker-skinned African-American women with platinum blonde dreadlocks create an interesting contrast between hair color and skin color. However, if your skin is really light, there is no break up of your skin and the platinum blonde. Sporting the platinum blonde on just the front locks' ends is a safe but bold look for both lighter and darker complexions.
Light Brown Dye
Light brown or any shade of brown is a safe, natural look that looks great on light and caramel shade skin tones. The dye color will create a cute two-toned look with your natural color.
