A question [19 Apr 2004|01:08am]
AlaskaDanielle's last post got me thinking.

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.)

I've been seeing so many comments
about people telling dreads
to cut off their hair
because it looks ugly

I'm wondering if we should start
telling people with undreaded hair
to cut it off
because it looks
and ugly

Or would that be sinking to their level?

Roots [19 Apr 2004|01:01pm]
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 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.

maybe i'm doing it wrong or something but the whole twist and rip thing on my tips works for about two minutes and then they undo themselves again, ARGH so frustrating
