I thought my loose hair wasn't as noticeable because it's so dark. Hmm.
The blond really highlights the loose hair, but also makes them look more intentional/ wispy and thus (to my friend, at least) less messy. It's a more pre-Raphaelite painting kind of look, I guess.
Also, it's possible that in bleaching them, some of the loose hairs sucked into dreads... they are ripping and twisting a lot easier this week, I'll say that!
