hey im new.
atm im growing my hair out from a mohawk but i really want dreads.
whats the best way of starting them and what length etc?
i really want quite thin ones so whats the best method for this?
also, i only want short spiky dreads so when they grow too long can i just cut through them like i would do normal hair?
thanks
past life?

doh!

Ok, sorry about the ads showing up. I must have had cookies that made the pics work on my comp at home. Does anyone know of a site where I can keep pics for free so I can post them on livejournal?

just the one!



I only have the one.. ;P It formed out of a braid I left in. the top I messed about with so it'd get into a keen shape. the bottom, obviously, was left on it's own. i have a theory that since the braid i did was the normal three strand type and it came out kinda flatish that a four strand round braid would come out more round.. ^.^

<3 my one dread.

if you click on the lj cut you can see more pictures. the last one(my personal fav.) shows the bottom of the braid being down by my shoulder or something but it's since gotten muuuuch shorter and is around my jaw now ^.^ in that picture the dreads around the top of my ear, now its at the bottom! ^.^ evidence! >;P

*sigh*
I've been trying to get my roots to knot up but it just seems like it is making them shorter..
they're about to my jawline.
Is there anywhere you can get beads besides online? Do places like hobby lobby and michaels carry beads with a big enough holes in the middle?

can anybody else see their scalp through the spaces between some of their dreads, or am i just lucky? there are a couple of spots on my head where this occurs.
i'm too young (not to mention too female) to look like i'm going bald.....
and i REALLY DON'T want to chop off my dreads for this unfortunate reason,
i guess i'll just have to get used to looking like i'm losing hair or something. i suppose i'll learn to grow less self-conscience about it over time....
