sparkly!

a question or two...

hello :D

i've had my dreads for about 3 months now and my roots just don't want to dread. my boyfriend did the looping thing (when you thread the dread through the root) and now has holes at the roots of his dreads so i don't want to do that, but i don't know what other solution there is. i wash my hair about once every 2 weeks, put a tiny amount of wax on to keep away the frizz (but it's so so little i don't think that's anything to do with it) and do the palmrolling thing but rargh it's all just hair at the top. my boyfirend has the same problem and he's really gutted cos he's had his for over a year and is on the verge of chopping them off so i'm just hoping someone has a miracle solution for us!

thankyooo :D

Whoa! My dreads look so tidy and tight today! I washed them (Dr. Bronner's peppermint bar soap) then palmrolled them (while still wet). I'm almost disappointed in their less wild appearance, but I think this treatment will be good for them in the long run. Hurrah.

Question : If you palmroll your dreads with lemon, lime or whatever juice, do you do it when they're still wet or when they're completely dry ? If you do it when it's wet, do you dip your dreads in a bowl of water (+ the juice of course) or do you put some of the juice on your hands and then palmroll ?

Thanks in advance :)

Quick question. My hair is all matted at the roots. Is this normal? I mean I still have seperate dreads because the rubberbands are keeping them apart, but I feel like if I shaved my head it would all stay as one piece. Is this how everyone's is? Ha ha, obviously there's not much I can do at this point to untangle it if that's not how it's supposed to be. It's wierd too because it's only one chunk but it's on the side I sleep on, so I guess that's why it's like that.

I probably make no sense. Sorry. :/
