(no subject)

so, i did my dreadies. i love them, only they are kinda inconsistent, and sorta lumpy. and the roots are shit.
i have heard a lot about putting elastic bands aorund the roots, about beads, about salt-water helping to tighten the dreads in general.

any advice for lil ol' me?

(pictures are forthcoming, as soon as we get them back.. hehe)

out of curiosity

alright so i have had my dreads for what like 4 days now...havent washed em or anything but i did dip them in the ocean once and that totally made the ends of them come apart....after about an hour i had them all back together again but im just wondering....i have a lot of stray it jsut because they arent matured yet...or is it because they are so short or is it just cuz i did something terribly wrong....just wondering....i know they will always have about an inch or two of undergrowth once they get longer because hair doesnt grow knotted up...but my head messed up or is this normal....

oh yeah im not using wax either so thats not holding anything together...thanks

dying dreads?

ok, i dreaded my hair like a month ago. Its been fine, but everytime i shampoo, my dreads unravel quite a bit. Is it a good idea to dye my dreads now, or wait a bit more?
