from mactavish's journal:

Student suspended for dreadlocks -- "Students, he said, could get a hard time from their peers who teased, left notes or put something on the student's car, making them 'feel uncomfortable so that they couldn't reach their full potential.'"

so the student with dreads has to change, not the students who act like assholes. how disheartening.

ok, so do dreads grow at all?
i've had mine for eight months soon, and.. honestly, all they've done is shrink. before i got them, my hair was .. somewhat below my shoulders. and now.. the longest dreads barely TOUCH my shoulders, and the shortest ones are up to my ears. this length doesn't look good on me at all.
anyway. i know dreads might grow slower than undreaded hair, but.. really, it's been months. i never wear my hair down, cause it looks like hell, and.. i can't really wear it up properly eighter, cause there are always some dreads too short and they keep falling out. five more centimetres, that's all i'm asking for! my roots won't thighten properly eighter damnit. i do the clockwise rubbing, but it only makes my skull sore. i've tried pulling some through.. uhm.. the roots.. you know..? that worked, but now they're separated at the roots. i guess it'll grow together with time. yes? other that that, they've tangled up pretty well, and if they would only grow and tighten at the roots, i'd be a happy girl.
i feel like little miss drama queen here, but i didn't think getting dreads meant having to hide my hair because it looks baad. i wonder if there's something you can take.. for hair growth that is. hmmm..

i guess what i'm asking is.. how much did your hair "shorten" when you got your dreads? and how long did it take before they actually started growing (the right way!) again? i'm awfully unpatient:)

Hey guys, my friend Cathy has dreads...And I really want to do mine again, but Cathy just got lice...and had to comb all her dreads out and treat it, shes gonna put them back in though...but what I'm wondering is...Is your chances of getting lice greater when you have dreads? Whats the deal on this anyone know? Do I have to be extra cautious?

some kind of poop got into my hair!

it feels like waxy glue, i have no idea how it got there and i am freaking out!

it took a while ot wash out, eww i am scared.

the only logical thing i can think of is that something was spilt / leaky window crap on the subway where i was falling asleep leaning on.

ew:( this is the worst thing ever.
