Honestly now, if Dredlocks were a very common hairstyle, one that everybody and their brother had, would you still want/have yours?
Would it make a difference if it became common/popular before or after you got yours?
EDIT: Just to clarify, by everybody I don't mean 'all the cool kids' I mean EVERYBODY. Donald Trump, George Bush, Britney Spears - everybody (or at least close enough to everybody that it was considered an acceptable business/conformist hairstyle.)
Hey, I'm kinda new to this thing. I've had my dreads in for a few months, I been just sotra playin around, not really knowing what I'm doin. I haven't put any wax in, I don't really want to run the risk of overdoing it with that. My main problem is that I can't seem to be able to get the roots to do much. Everythign else is coming along ok, but I don't know what to do to get the roots to lock up so it looks pretty weird. What can I do to get the roots to work and what would you suggest as far as using wax to speed them up a bit?
i finished my dreads 2 nights ago(ive been doing them over the last 2 weeks or so..for the 5th time >_<)...and yesterday i washed them, did sea salt/lemon juice spray and then sat in the sun to let them dry...let me tell you...it did WONDERS...today i did the knottyboy locksteady shit...that works really well too...
i dont really know the point of this post...maybe to tell you all this shizznit works ^_^...
i had dreads for about a year, and due to my lack of dread knowledge before, i wasnt able to properly care for them. so i cut them off.
and now i've decided to get the dreads back. i pretty much did all the dreading by myself. which is a complete bitch when doing the back. but im still not sure how long i should wait until i can dye my hair. or when i should wash them. any answers or tips i will highly appreciate. oh - i have straight hair and im wondering whether i should use a lot of wax if there are a few loose hairs dangling out of the dreads.
