Help....!!!!! [07 Apr 2004|12:27am]
so Ive been wanting dreads forever now...so today I happened on a new dollar store that had a shit load of rubber bands for $0.50 and a great comb for backcombing...for $0.99 this thing is so strong..I think I could throw it into a jet engine and it would come out good as new!
so I havent washed my hair to get all my old shampoo out...I was gonna latter...so I just started messing around seing if i could start to form a dread....well after 15 mins or so and what I think might be the start of carpel tunnel syndrome...low & behold I have a dread!!!!and for my first dread what I think looks damn good...will try and post a pic tomorrow...I love how just one looks!
buttt there is always that but. My boyfreind dont seem to keen on them...he thinks I should be "presentable" for jobs (iam unempolyed and working hard to get a job) and my roomie and everyone sans the people on LJ,kim and sigi think there a bad idea...that i "will look like trash" yes i got told that!
I dont know what to do....are the right about the job thing?
I havent been hiered yet....
I think dreads are simply beautiful on women....but broke and jobless and low self esteem self has no idea what to do....
any advice I would love

Hey all, I'm sorry to say that I have to attack you with a few more questions.

First off: When your dreads were just babies, how many of you slept with something protecting them, like, say, a pair of pantyhose? Did any of you find that it helped to lock them up? I've heard that it does, and I've heard that it doesn't.

Also: What are dreads like during the summer? Are they hotter than the average hairdo, and harder to keep clean?

And finally: I have a pretty low-flow shower. Meaning, I have slim to nil water pressure. I hear that this isn't the best thing when washing suds out of dreads, so... any suggestions on what I can do to help my babies along?

Thank you for your patience. You guys are great. :D
