being the dumbass that i am, i thought i could manage shaving the back of my head. my head is usually shaved (about 3/4 of it), so i just put my fingers at dread level and shaved up to there.
after, i tried tying up my hair, and poof! 3 dreads stayed in my hands.
i tied them back on, but i think i'm going to untie them cause they'll end up growing back bizarrely.
moral of the story: if you care about those locks, get someone else to shave the back instead of being a dumbass like me.
finally after many months (years really) i dreaded my hair. it took about 4 hours. but it was worth it (man did it hurt though) at one point i had 4 different people dreading at once, all of which were good friends (except my girlfriend who is my best friend) so that was quit the experience. listening to rage and bob marley while dreading rocked. now once they start laying down it will be better lol. im going to wear them in a bandanna (like in my icon) for awhile. till they start to look decent. and this saterday im hitting the ocean in hopes of these hos getting tighter (very nice that their first bath shall be the gulf of mexico). but yeah my icon pic is basicly the only pic i have of them so far. i have some on a camra but i havent developed the film yet and i dont have a scanner. ill try to get some pics up eventually. but untill then i shall keep everyone updated on my hairs life (especially since im not waxing and not really going to do anything else to them, so basicly from here on out they are natural) well later kids. and now that im one of the dreaded brothers and sisters i shall end it in the classic way so many of you do. peace, love, and good vibes (and remember kids jesus loves you and so do i)...
Well hello everyone it's been a while since i last made a post in here but just inform everyone my hair has grown a lot.At first i thought since it was the same length for weeks it wasn't gonna grow and i would be having baby dreads for a long time.But then they started growing and i was like WOW it can grow so now i'm happy and saturday is when i will be getting my dreads i missed them a lot.
How is everyone doing?
i'm new. i love natural hair. but don't it done yet.
i read a ton of back entries. i love this community already.
hi im alex...im new to the community and ive jsut recently started dreading my hair. i was jsut wondering does anyone have any suggestions for washing loose hair without ruining dreads? cus my hair isnt all dreaded btu its getting gross...and since its thin the loose hair becomes harder to dread the grosser it gets. ok thanks.
