Interesting observation a friend and I made.. I have a habit of putting weird random things into my hair.. such as pop tabs, lighter tips, whatever. Does anyone else put random shit in their hair? If so what? I've got a paperclip in one dread.. haha..

Just wondering.

Heya heya. I've just started with mee dreads and I looked in past entries trying to find a post about itching. I know it is in there as I've seen it before but now I can't find it. Grrr. So can someone give me their ideas on what to do for itching? I'm not really itching now but I want to be prepared.

How do I know when I have to wash them?

Last night I went to my schools homecoming (just for the heck of it with some friends). but i ended up tying my hair back in a ball and putting a couple pins in it so it would stay and then putting 5 small white roses with some green leaves behind each rose. it looked really pretty.

i'll try and post some pictures later.

so if anyone says that you cant do anything pretty with your dreadies, tell them you can, because people thought they rocked last night and i enjoyed them too.

So my caucasian friend just went to Hair Salon franchise known as Hair Cuttery and spoke to an African Amercian woman who dreads peoples hair. He asked her if she could do them for him but he didn't want anything unnatural in his hair or even Wax or Gel but she claimed it's impossible for Caucasian hair to dread without wax or gel. I told him I could do it for him without putting wax in his hair or anything just by backcombing or him just doing the "Neglect" method. He was outraged at his treatment at the salon.

Just one question. Has this ever happened to you or anyone you know and what was the outcome?

"what do you do when your dreads itch?"


..thanks, smartie.

oh man..i love the feeling of freshly washed dreads after i've squeezed all the water out. they feel lovely and not smelly at all. :D
anyone else feel this way?


Since winter is approaching I was curious.

Are your dreads more controlable and less frizzy in the Summer, Winter, Fall, or Spring?

(Sorry for so many posts and if some of you got upset at my last post. It wasn't meant to offend.)
