    Seeing as the dye is causing them to fall off, I wouldn't dye them again. I say cut them off.

    the dye probably wasn't washed out fully from your locs or they were over processed.

    aunapp is right, adding more dye to the problem will only exacerbate it. baby the heck out of your ends. good luck.

    I agree w/ babying your ends and seeing if that will help. Are you sure all the dye is out of your hair??? Did you use a product to actually halt the dying process like a neutralizer? Do your ends feel hard or do they feel mushy? Where your ends healthy before you dyed? Are you sure your not just losing buds?

    What was your dying process and did you use bleach?

    If your ends feel hard I advise the use of some type of moisturizing treatment... if your ends feel mushy I advise the use of some type of protein treatment-followed by light moisture. I wish you the best sis?

    I'm going to have to catch this closely as I plan to colour my hair on my 1 year anniversary. OP what colour system did you use? Did you do it at home?

    Yes, unfortunately it does sound like the dye wasn't neutralised or washed out properly - condition condition condition but it might be that the damage is done I don't see any point in folding them onto themselves if you'll be losing that bit of length anyway, better to let go and have healthy ends.

    You are putting a lot of harsh, stripping and drying elements into your hair at the same time! You shouldn't bleach AND do an ACV rinse... couldn't really determine if that was your process outside of the wash and condition. The ACV will strip your hair and that doesn't sound like what you need right now.

    You might want to wash your tips with a neutralizing shampoo and then condition them and add some moisture. If all else fails, you can trim your ends.

    Hope it works out!

    I agree w/ this.

    Also maybe after you are done with these steps you should consider the baggy technique. Take your hair and spray the ends with water, then apply a natural oil like olive to the ends of your hair at least two inches upward, and place a plastic bag over your hair. Do this nightly to see if you can regain some moisture. You have to create a balance between moisture and protein, so that your hair is strong and moisturized. You have to feel your hair and let it tell you want it needs. If your ends are not popping off maybe they can be saved...again I wish you the best.

    Please go to a professional or really research before coloring again...Aveda is a really good place. Bleach can be harsh...I used to bleach back in the day. You have to follow directions to the letter.

    I don't think you should ever color without neutralizing your hair. You have to make sure the process is done....

    I am no color expert but I used to color my hair all 'de time.
