anyone know of a good salon or place that will do some serious maintenance on my hair? my dreadies in the front are awesome, but i cant see the ones in the back nor feel around much without my arms hurting, and im in need of some serious seapration/needle and thread work back there. i'm on long island, so somewhere preferably in suffolk county, but i will go to nassau/the city if i'm desperate and theyre reeeeeally good ;) danke!

Anybody know of any good tam/ dread hat pattern or instruction sites, with or without pictures of the patterns? I've been online looking for about an hour, can't find any :(

Thanks in advance.

I think I am washing my dreads too much! I wash them usually every day (with Knotty Boy dread shampoo ^_______^) and I've only had them for 3 weeks, but they look OK.

What a glued in fringe looks like

I cut off 4 of my front dreads and combed them out and cut them into bangs.. I decided they werent thick enough, I have VERY fine hair. So i got a weft of hair, and a hair police affiliate friend of mine straightened it into the right shape for a bang fringe, and attached it with glue. She showed me how to do it and it is SO simple.
The blonde part is the fringe, blue/purple is my hair.

I just need to say this community makes me love my dreads more and more. That probably sounds wicked nerdy, but whenever I get frustrated with mine (they are really young and rather wild) and I come on and see all the beautiful people with beautiful dreads at all different stages from one day to many years it makes me love mine despite thier many flaws.

Quick question as well. So I have one dread in the front and it is very wierd for me to wear them down because it either hangs straight down between my eyes or goes to the side like some sort of early 90s hairdo so I want to rip it into two seperate ones. To do this, do I just kind of divide it down the center and pull it apart and then palmroll them to make two seperate ones? It sounds simple enough, I just don't want to ruin them since it is right in the front. They are only about 1 1/2 months old so they aren't really tight yet so I figure it shouldn't be too hard to split right?

Also, some of my dreads have spots in the middle between the elastic bands at the roots and tips that are just straight chunks of hair that don't seem to want to tangle and dread. I've tried salt water and palmrolling but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Is this something only time will fix?
