i don't have dreads yet. it's sad, i know. but i've been watching this community and admiring all the beautiful dreadies of amazing people out there in LJ land. i was talking to a friend of mine about her dreads and asked her the best way to start. she advised that i get the tightest perm possible then dread and i'll get 5 months worth of dreading done in a few days. i'm just curious if anyone has tried this method, or for opinions? anyone?

any tricks and stuff to get the smoke-smell (for example of concerts-halls or pubs) out of your dreads without washing them?
it mostly vanishes after a long walk outside but as its becoming winter... what do you do?
