they're in:


i had them put in by a friend (a very pregnant beautiful hippie with fat dreads)
last friday

a few questions:
- what can i do about my oily scalp while i wait as long as i can to wash them for the 1st time? (i'm itching and scratching already and it's gross)

- there are many stray hairs that keep coming out of my locks... i've tried to get them back in, but they keep coming out... anything i can do about this at this point in time?

(no subject)

i'm gonna be heading off and living in the woods for a good month (rainbow gathering.. yay!) and i wanna know in advance how to get rid of fleas. i hear to cut your dreads but i do not for a second believe that is the only answer. i refuse to believe it actually. everyone said the only way to get rid of dreads period was to cut them but i comb those suckers out that last two times i had them. so enlighten me fine people

My excuse for having dreads

Today i just relaized that i sometimes forget i have dreads.. i have gotten so use to them ..that i don't miss combing my hair and they seem to be jus my am wondering why do ppl always ask me
what does it feel like to have dreads?
are you on a spiritual quest?
are you rebelling against society?
i simply tell them
" I just doh like combing meh hair" (in my caribbean accent)

what's your excuse?

frizz prevention

my head's developed extreme frizziness.
one of the suggestions i've read on here is to wear a hat to bed to help prevent this.
i've tried the hat-in-bed-thing (using three different toques on different nights), and all the times that i've tried, i can't get the damn hat to stay on my head!
i guess i toss and turn too much, or something, because by morning i always end up with the hat under my pillow or against my nose or down by my feet(!).
any tips for hat-wearing ;) in bed?
or any other tips on how to de-frizzify a head of dreads?
