thought i would share..
I pulled out a dread at the back of my head. it was roughly 20cm long and quite thick. The reason i pulled it out was because the night before; chocolate some how immersed itself into that particular dread. I was on a train going to a friends house, pulling it out, it wasnt pleasent. felt a burning pain sensation.. I had a look at the dread and could see it was covered in dry chocolate and dry skin..yeah..how gross. I threw it away.
I have to wear my hair tied back when I work, but can not use a wrap or anything, just an elastic or the likes. Since I have been doing this practically every day my hair seems to have formed itself into a permanent ponytail shape. ALL the dreads in the back have webbed themselves together at the base near my head, causing me to currently have one MASSIVE dread that seperates into about 20 seperate normal sized ones about an inch down.
Now I've tried ripping them apart, it worked to a certian extent, but now they just seem to be too knotted up near the base for me to be able to rip it anymore.
It's time to bring out the scissors or the likes. Are scissors the best thing for me to use to do this? I heard someone mention something about a straight blade razor or something like that, is this better? Or, is there something that will do the least amount of damage to my dreads when I put the blade to them? At this point they are finally starting to look good and I want to avoid them coming out or unravelling at all costs. I know the person who I am allowing to do the cutting will hopefully not cut anything that shouldn't be cut seeing as though these beautiful locks were created by her hands. :)
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! :)
I'd like to add the "my parents hate my dreads because..." to the FAQs, as I'm seeing a lot of posts on the subject.
So, if you're parents don't like your dreads, or have condescending things to say, etc., please post your comment here and I'll add it to the FAQs once and for all.
FAQs were updated with some of this week's posts.
When the FAQ is updated, it is generally a hope of the mods that the community members will direct people to already-discussed questions/topics to save us from repitition.
Also, if you think a particular thread *SHOULD* be in the FAQ but isn't, email a link to the thread: email@example.com
Thanks in advance for keeping your heads up!
Are there any Dutch users here who know what stores carry real Beeswax?

sorry for bothering the non-dutch
Because I love you dreadheads and this community I'll thought I'd ask you first.
If anyone here wants a gmail account, comment with a funny poem or picture (that is dread related) and it's yours.
I'm that bored.
EDIT: I only have two.
P.S. Leave your email so I can send it.
