hi. ive been around here for a while, but never posted anything because i have boring normal hair. but i love dreadlocks and the more i think about them the more i want them. but i think its pretty fair to say that im still a little naive, so i have a couple of questions to ask..
i have really fine hair. will this pose a problem? i want to let my dreads grow naturally. will this mean that they will form nicely and not make my head look like its losing hair? im not even sure that made sense, but i cant think of a better way to describe it, its late and im sleepy :)
also, does anyone have any regrets about their hair? like, is there something you would have done differently?
im sorry for the questions, i just want to make sure i know exactly what im in for, and this community seemed the right place to ask.
thankyou in advance :)
how long did/do you backcomb for? what i mean by this is days/weeks/months/years/always..
what are the stupidest question you get asked about your locks? the one iv been getting a lot (since my locks are only about a month old) is "do you take those out each night?" another good one i got last night at the haunted forest was "are those real?" now part of it is that i get the first question alot at the haunted forest, so some people arent sure if i normaly wear my hair this way or if its somethign i do as a constume effect. speaking of the forrest, this goes out to cracker (or however you spell it) do you get alot of people comment on your dreads as you are scaring them? last night a bunch of drunk preps were and one was like "wow he has dreads," then all at once they all say "just like bob marley!"( see where im from the prep and the redneck is very similer, and most of the rednecks and preps really dig bob marley. they dig like country, rap, southern and some classic rock, and bob marley. who knows why) oh one more story and im gone. yesterday i broght a cd player to work (cuz i hate the radio) and while i was washing dishes i play some of my cds (jack johnson was a good hit, as was hottie and the blowfish) and when i played my bob marley legends cds everyone was singing along and they walked past my dishwashign station. twas a beautiful thing...
ima cacausian grrrl and i really really want dreads and have wanted them for years!! but my hair is very short and spikey so ima hav to wait a while! :'(
i was wondering when is the most apropriate length to start back combing and dreadlocking or maybe ANYTHING i could do to make my hair grow longer, faster!!
