i know alot of people have those days were they really wanna cut of their dreads. surprisingly i havent had many of those. i did aroudn the second month i had them, but after that i havent thought about it at all. something else iv noticed, if you start your dreads long enough to wear them up you tend to wear them up alot (which is cool dont get me wrong). im thinking maybe, in those peoples cases, because their draeds are always up they cant fully love them for them. mine arent nearly long enough to put up. so they are always everywhere, and flowing (well as flowing as 6 inch dreads can be lol) and i never wanna cut them off. just a thought... man im ramnbleing alot lol. sorry. ok what im getting at is my theory is if you always wear your draeds in the early months (iv had mine for 4) then you will have less likely hood of wanting to cut them off. though i could be wrong...

They are now making Barbies with dreads

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing... but yeah.

They come with this long, twisty, dread like hair. The boxes say that the hair is possable, so I guess the center of the "dread" is made of some kind of plastic. Found this kind of interesting today during my time at Target.

Hello! I know dread-newbie's asking questions all the time might get irritating for some of you, when all you want to see is pictures. But I have a question and am at my wit's end.

I had my dreadlocks done about three weeks ago, it was fairly half hearted and it needed more work ... however I went down south over new years and neglected them a little and for the past several weeks have been so busy so I have just kept my hair up.

The problem IS though - all my roots are just fucked up. Some of my dreads are dreading okay. The rest are really loose. And I'm willing to wait and stick with it all but what the HELL am I going to do about my roots? They need to be fixed before I can look after the actual dreads. I didn't use rubber bands or anything in the roots, so everything has just kind of matted together. I think with alot of work - maybe the matted mess can be sorted out but I'm just so frustrated and just feel like hacking my hair off.

I don't want to lose my length because my hair is down to my ass! And I know it can work, does anyone have any words of advice or recommendations or anything to help me out? Should I condition and start again? Should I just work at with a comb and put rubber bands in? I want to keep dreads forever ... so I really don't want to cut it all off.

Thankyou SO much.
