New Dreads

Treated myself to a dread perm about 2 weeks again to replace my long lost dreads I had in high school (they were back comb method, and lovely)

Figured I'd post the page of pics for those who'd like to see.

I got mine done on the same day as marienkafer but haven't washed them yet. She's got the blessing of super wavy hair, mine is thick heavy and straight, I want to give them all the time they need to loc up :)


dread perm pix


i used to have regular dreads too but they kept falling out and i was dumb and crocheted a lot and that part wasn't dreading so i decided to get a hairpolice dreadperm and this is what it looks like two and a half weeks in (got em same day as geekpixie, done by the same boy):

anyway they look curly because my hair is crazy curly and the perming process does that... but they say it's temporary so be kind in your comments...

Hey - someone want to describe the "twist and rip" technique for me?? Most of my baby locks are doing nicely with palmrolling and light backcombing, but I have these stubborn bastards in the back that may benefit from some rough treatment - "TWIST! and RIP!" sounds appropriately violent...

Hi! ::waves:: I'm new. I was wondering if there is any hair place where you can get dreads. Or do you have to do them yourself? I wanna get dreads, but I really don't know anything about them. Any Helpers out to help a Beginner?

Leave A Post or AIM me at I am a dork x17 .

Please and Thank You.

well i'll be

hurrah for homemade haircuts!

remember me?

i chopped off my dreads down to stubs in the middle of the night, and ripped 'em out. it took so much conditioner and i lost more hair than i've ever lost taking out dreads before. they were really coming along okay. also, i'd never cut my own hair before, and it took me a couple of hours in the tub, but i finally did it.

this'll be my last post, but it's been grand.
