It can be done. I'm not sure if we have a tutorial floating round the forum... there was definitely one on the old site, but it's a long time and pre-dreads since I henna'd mine. I can't remember how conditioning henna is as that would be the main issue.
I've used henna on mine (albeit at 2 years ish) with no real negative effects - it just lasts forever. I'm assuming you know the ins and outs of henna, but doing it will mean never using bleach or other dyes on it for the considerable future.
It can be slightly conditioning, but is healthy for your hair. Took hours to rinse it all out afterwards though >.<
Sjoe two years are a bit long to wait! But I'm almost certain I henna'd my previous locs, just can't member the experience though...will most probs give it a go around six months in, I'm so sick and tired of other hair dye!
Geweldig mooie dreadlocks!! They're going to be more awesome everyday. I've been dieing my hair with henna for more than 3 years now. Even before my dreads. Dyeing your dreads isn't that more difficult than without dreads. Just make sure to only dye the outside of your dreadlocks and not through and through. I let the henna set for more than 4 hours and when I wash it out I soak my hair in a bucket till the dye is out. Henna is so strong that it won't come out with a small soak. Anyway you don't have to dye your hair, you have a beautiful hair colour of your own.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
