job found!

hey you guys. i hope all is well in your world. just to let you know i found a job..where im afraid to mention because some of you will deeply protest, cause its for corporate america..but the pay for start is pretty good..now i just have to get past that 3 month thing, which i have never heard of in my 18 years of living..but w/e.

i went into an outdoor market type thing to look for a new tam, and the worker had these really nice dreads and his whole aura made me smile..or maybe hes paid to be outgoing..but i cant be thinkin like that..and then i went on the subway and some dreaded fellow was playing the djembe, and i was completely enthralled for the 5 minutes i was waiting for my train to arrive.

ahhhh. i am so happy to be back in the nyc with all its diversity..its so comforting..you dont even know.

and nyc people, im still looking for a place to live, so if you see or hear something please please let me know.

also, what are some natural detox's? im not talking about those crazy pills or drinks that they make sp. for drug tests..but other stuff.

Brand new dreadlocks, aprox shoulderlengh and a pencil length thick. Just wondering aproximately how long it will take til they don't feel slimy and sticky and stiff from wax and are touchable and malleable.

Hey all, i have a question directed mainly at the people that have had dreads more than once.

The first time i had dreads, i had them for a year before deciding upon cutting them off. My hair dreaded easy the first time cause i had really thick, curly hair but after cutting them, i realised that my hair had thinned out a lot. My originally thick hair has somehow been replaced with more managable thin wavy hair which has left my current dreads locking up slower.

Has anyone else experienced hair thinning after cutting their dreads off? If so, why do you think it happens?

i posted pics a while ago, back when my dreads were pink. now they're completely locked and are looking a lot better.

i've gotten quite a few 'dayum girl, you needta brush(and the occasional variation of: wash) yo hair' comments, but i definately like my hair a lot better now, and this community has been extremely helpfull.

My dreads are eating each other!
I pick one up and it moves like, 5.. hahah.
I've cut some apart, but some are so messy I am afraid I might end up cutting them right off. So I'm leaving them alone. My question is, will they start growing together if I don't try to seperate them? Or will they separate on their own? I always forget to play with them and just let them go on their own but they keep dreading together.
