about how much I love my dreadies right now, and I promsied to post pictures. So today I went and had a minature photoshoot by myself in my backyard aided by my tripod and abnormally long arms! :) I can't believe its been... oh ten months or so now! Sometimes (most of the time) I feel like I've had dreads forever and the rest of the time I feel like it was only yesterday that I started them!
wow im soo proud of myself i've been a member of this community for a while now, but i couldn't quite figure out how to post in it *wow im a retard* but i figured it out so here i am posting... So what up my fellow dreadies? I guess i should post a picture too huh, well theese are from like 3 months after i got my dreads in december, and once i get batteries for my digi cam i will post my pink dreadies ummm well here they are :) *if someone could tell me how to do those cuts that'd be just grand* http://img75.photobucket.com/albums/v227/Crazydreadhead/b8be30b1.jpg
i've been crushing hardcore on this girl who goes to the same open mic as i do.
she has beautiful blonde dreadlocks.
and i wrote her a note telling her she was beautiful and made her a mix cd.
she wrote back and said: "i'm a christian and believe in male-female relationships only"
ok, i don't mean to sterotype, but since when do dreadheads who listen to bjork and raidohead take the bible so literally, let alone believe in the bible?
it was just a strange strange night. at first it was really hurtful and then i was just like "that was really weird" one the other hand i do understand that in the rasta religion the bible is taken pretty literally. but... she wasn't rasta.
i know this isn't fair of me, but i was pissed that she had dreads.
wow... it sure hase been an interesting week in the GUDU community... rather glad i missed that slight unpleasantness...some people... on to happiness sand and salt and sun treatments at the beach everyday are making my hair feel more beautiful and tighter every day...maybe even every hour beaching rules... i wish my body was feeling as much beautification as my dreads...it/he seems a little subdued... and i thought everyone liked to be tan... oh well... its a wonderful contrast to when i imagine myself on the beach FUCKING HUGE AND HAIRY, DREADED and a whole bunch of tiny girls and crew cut boys wearing 30 dollar bikini's silly is all i say peace n love WE NEED ALL WE CAN GET b
Oook. So I keep seeing people worrying about thier roots locking up and people say don't worry about it, time will fix it. However, I am having the opposite problem. My roots have knotted up insanely, and now I am facing a huge problem. ALL my dreads are growing together. The best way I can describe it is that the dreads are like fingers and the little webbing between them, they are growing together like the webbing, slowly moving there way farther and farther down, until at somepoint I will just have one GIANT massive dread in the back of my head. Ack.
So, my question is this. Is there a way to seperate them without cutting the hair? Or, if I do have to cut them at this point (which I am pretty sure I have to) do I just cut them between each dread (like where the "webbing" is) and then palm roll like crazy to get all the short hair ends into the respective dreads?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much. :)
In one other note. I was scared that my hair would be a problem at my summer job (I work at an amusement park and they always stress people having "traditional" hair styles (like no blue or green hair and such) so I wasn't sure if they would make me comb them out. However, no one has said anything so I appear to be home free. :) 5 months and going strong! :D I haven't posted pictures here yet but I shall soon. :)
