discounted dread product
free school tuition
free drinks
a temple raised in our honor in every major city
maybe some statues also
groupies(male and female; for differing moods)
lots of free icecream

flexible time for everything(ie-we arent held to the same time as the real world)
and candy lots of candy
homemade pie

Okay, okay

Since jame0 said he'd seen pictures of me, I may as well shove some on here. They don't really show my dreads too well, but I guess it's okay to start with. I'm gonna start threading some up soon - I'm sick of bands, and my friend's threaded ones look fab.

If I wasn't so lazy, the faded ones would still be bright pink/green, and there would be no annoying fluff escaping. I'm lazy though, so I've been letting them be as opinionated as they like for the past ages. But yeah, 18month birthday in a week or so.

finishing a job never started

when i started my dreads i had half my head shaved now ive let that grow out and have about four inches to work with. im really bored today and im contemplating finishing the rest of my head with the new hairs. do you guys think that four is enuf hair for a twist n rip method, or should i wait for another couple of months. i think that having skunk nug dreads (what i call shorty dreaddlocks) under my longer ones will look kinda neat.
also how hard is it to do this method by yourself. my friends helped me lasst time and she is not around right now. so what kinda difficulties am i looking at. suggestions?

ps- anybody live in or around the DC, balt area?

so, yeah. i tried making this sea salt mixture and it worked really well for the loose hairs. it didn't dry out my hair at all either...which really surprised me. but i was wondering, since aloe vera is supposed to condition or tighten or do something to your hair, is aloe vera juice good to use? or should i return that and just get a plant and stick it in the blender?
