baby dreads

hey everyone!

i'm cassie, i've been in this community for about a year.. but i've been one of those wimps who likes dreads but doesnt have them.. well i started doing them, but in sections so i dont send my mom, head, or school into shock.

they're about 2 days old, they're backcombed and then latch-hooked together (thanks to tips and references from xsourkittenx..) and i'm not using any wax.. (too expensive!) i got this putty stuff.. "salon selectives control substance molding putty for short/thick hair." wow, they made that title long enough. but yeah, i use that on a few frizzy parts, generously round my head. i havent washed the dreads themselves yet, just my undreaded hair. it's turnin out alright.. i think...

i used to have them, but my cousin paid me in money and pills to take them out.
and now she's gone, i decided i want them back.
if i get plaits, the regrowth would take, wouldn't it?

sadly, i am another one of the sillies that loves dreads but doesnt have em. mainly, because i dont think i look very nice when i have long hair, and i dont like short dreadlocks. so ive always settled for surrounding myself with cute dreadheads.

yesterday out of sheer boredom, i was watching a movie and rubbing a blanket on my head. and this was the result. i didnt know it was gonna happen, it just felt reaaaaaally nice!

hey again..i recently tried a wool scarve to my dreads while palmrolling them. i dont know how it works, but for some reason it made them seem tighter and looking better?is it just me or is it really doing that?

what is this "twist-and-rip" method i always hear about..i just backcomb a lot and palmroll it.

thanks..

I've never really taken pictures of my dreading process, but a friend of mine always has his digi cam with him and he takes pictures of basically anything. Including me :) I'm just posting a couple of pics here so that you all can see a little piece of my love/hate relationship with my dreadies...
