guitar hair down

Help...Dread lice

One day these things started showing up on my head when my hair reached my armpits. I cut out 4 or 5 to try and stop it. They kept coming back. I am one of those lucky individuals that grow dreads easy and natural so I decided to give in to them. My hair just wanted to dread and who was I to argue.

Any who they are almost a year old and are starting to look good. I am used to them, I like them.

My daughter spent last weekend with me...she had lice.
I don't want to lose them, I love them so much.

I used 2 bottles of nix and put on a swimming cap and left it on for over half an hour. Please tell me this will work, if not any suggestions would be helpful and most certainly appreciated.

Another journal yet again

This is jamesy_dear with my other journal. Don't mind me, I'm an lj code addict. If anyone needs one, just ask. *s*

Alright, well, you all saw the demise of my poor dreads. Now, I've got bald spots, not too big, but I'm permitted to wear a hat in school because of it. My hair was thin to begin with now it's even thinner.

I miss my dreads. A lot. I feel very unlike myself, and very very...odd. Naked. If I do them again, I'll need extensions to have any dreads at all.

This goes against basic Rastafarian beliefs, so I'm torn over the issue. I really want my dreads back, but the only way to get them back, is to directly oppose the basic principles. So...what do I do?

I'd like to hear everyone's opinions on this. Thanks so much.
