ice cream salons for 99cents

so, i went to the 99cent store today, and who should i see but MadTv's very own Debra Wilson! my mom and i were looking at the ice cream, and out of nowhere we see this black lady with blonde dreads, and my mom was giving me a funny look. i was looking at her thinking, "she looks sooo familiar..." then she was talking to this old guy who was probably trying to pick her up...haha. he said she should be on the radio...but she's already on tv! she's a really good talker. so i told my mom that it was Debra Wilson, and we eventually ran into her when we were pulling out of the parking lot, so we asked for her autograph. i told her i liked her hair, and she started telling me all about her dreads' history, and about the salon where she gets hers maintained. she's really a great person. and there's my brush with famous dreadlocks.

now excuse me...i must go cook a chicken...

My crazy food service work is making me take my dreads out because of "sanitation reasons", personally, i think, and no offense to anyone but they just don't want a white boy with dreads. I can't quit because all the old people fork up money for a 4000 dollar scholarship. I plan on conditioning it and trying to comb it out tomorrow. Thank you all for all your help and entertainment, i still plan on being a frequent vistor here. This is going to be my last dreadlocked pic. :(

    ani d-out of habit


Why hello there! My name is Allison and I'm from a small town above New York City. I've always been fascinated with hair - mine has always been black (naturally, dyed every other color imaginable), ultra-long, straight, thin and bang-ed.

Dreads are absolutely beaautiful. I occasionally decide to put my hair into rubber bands (42 of them to be exact) and have the urge to dread them. My only concern is having to take them out later on, for something such a job, and having to shave my head. @_@ I "pseudo-dreaded" my bangs for about two years, then realized that it was rather unflattering so I went to...well you'll see.

My ex-boyfriend Gerry has had dreads for about two years now. Someone happened to put wash-out Halloween spray in his hair and it still hasn't come out.

I'm also looking into dread-falls, as well. If I can't actually dread my hair, might as well spice it up a bit.
