Dreads in MD?

I'm hoping someone can help me.

My hair has a habit of locking up on it's own, just from sleeping on it and such. And I've been thinking about getting real dreads for some time now. I want to go ahead with it and get it sectioned and done nicely before my hair turns into one giant clump.

Here's the thing, I don't have a car and can't go very far anyway cause I'm my husband's 24/7 caregiver and he's bed-ridden. So I'm in search of someone in Maryland, USA (northeast MD, about 40-60 min. from Baltimore) who can do dreads on caucasian hair and is willing to come to my house to do it and get me started on the right path with them. I would purchase all the things needed beforehand or pay the person for them, in addition to the work, if they have the items. I am available all the time, always home.

I'm not necessarily looking for a "professional", just someone that can section my hair for me and backcomb the bejeezus out of it. I don't know anyone currently to do that.

If you or someone you know can help, please email me or just post, I check the boards often:

I need help.

i am 17 and go to a catholic school. i have had dreadlocks for the past 8 months, getting away with it by avoiding the authoratative figures at my school. I was in art class today and had a messenger come in with a note saying that i have a dress code violation with my 'bizzare' hairstyle. Now, i keep it clean and stuff, but when i explained this to the teacher that nabbed me, he said i have to get my hairstyle 'reviewed' by the head disciplinarian tommorow. I went to his office last year (at the end of the year) and i wrote him off by telling him that i was going to cut it. I need your feed back, do you have any advice for me? anyone have any experience with this stuff? (my dreads are 4 inches long)

The handbook statesBoys' hair must be clean and neatly trimmed and should not extend below the top of the collar; sideburns must not extend below the earlobe, nor long hair cover the ears. Hairstyles and jewlery judged eccentric by the administration will be forbidden.

Hello all you beautiful dread heads! :)

Hi, my name is Melody and my boy friend has dreads. I have been a lurker here for quite a while and I finally decided to join and see if you guys can help me out. The deal is, my boy has had his dreads for almost 4 years now and they're getting pretty long. They are about mid back length or maybe a little longer. The problem is that they are so long and heavy that his is beginning to thin out a lot at the roots due to the stress on his head from the dreads. I have suggested to him to go to a professional hair dresser and maybe they can tighten it up a little more and what not, but he is very stubborn to do so because he has always done his hair himself and does not want anyone elses help. His dreads are beautiful and I don't want him to cut them, but if we don't up with a better solution then he will have to cut them in order to relieve some of the weight on his head. :(
I don't want my baby to go bald, but I also don't want him to have to cut his precious dreads either! Help!!!!


PS. I'll try and get some pics up in the next month or so, but I'm pretty busy!

hey just wondering;

for people here who used wax, which BRAND of wax did you use and what exactly were the results of using it on your dreads? did it make them firmer, collect loose hairs or whatever, or did you use it and end up having candles on your head?

Hi, yeah I’m a picture whore and I know it. But I would also like to know if anyone has any advice on what to do with hair in the middle of dreadlocks that does not dread. In my case an area on my dreads that just looks like curly hair. Thanks.
