Wool Gloves, Some Sweet Love, and...

I looked for awhile and I couldn't find anything on it, but I remember reading somewhere sometime that wearing wool gloves when you palmroll helps to make your dreads lock up and even adds little bits of wool to your hair and you can color them colorful (i like orange, it would be cool to have little pieces of orange strands in my dreads.) Does anyone know about this?

As the date approaches I'm getting very nervous. My hair has been growing for over a year now (a year and like 7 days) and is 6.25 at the shortest and about 7.25 at the longest and is thick for straight white person hair. How long will it take to dread in about 1" squares? I'm going to do the top/front myself in the morning probably, and have a (ooooo) lady do the back and I don't want to make the sweet girl waste like 9 hours of her life. P.S. WAX!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!

and... you'll notice i said white person hair... How funny is dave chappelle because he says what no one else will say but everyone thinks. I almost died when i saw his black kkk member skit. (sorry i'm behind times, i don't have cable) But anyways, i'm rambling. Bye bye now.

ok it's time
i got into a discussion with arcane smile about rapunzel and the state of her hair.
we were talking about how rapunzel had frikkin longggg ass hair and that it cant of just been straight and purdy. my thinkin is that rapunzel had some killer nappys goin on. arcane smile thought that she might have had braids. either way, that hair must've been dreaded
what is yall's opinion on this?

so where do you go to find a bike helmet that'll fit over your dreads? i have a helmet that someone gave me, but it seems more than a little snug. and when i have my hair pulled back, the helmet feels like it's resting on my head and not actually protecting the sides at all.


my dreads are tight and mature but I was wondering if they will still combine if I put elastics around them. I'm asking because most of my dreads are thick and I have a couple that are smaller than I'd like and they are right next to each other. My mom was on vicaden(sp?) when she did my dreads so yeah.

hiiii! ^_^ so i posted last week about no brushing/washing/etc...the natural way.^_^ i am in week two of not brushing my hair and i have washed it once. the back is very cool. i can feel all these little sections and its all messy.

i have alot of thick (mildly wavey) hair. how long do you suppose this will take?

my birthday present to myself, and my friends' present to me - re-dreading my hair!! (yes, my birthday was today, i'm now 19!) they're not quite done, but one of my friends is going to help me finish them tomorrow.

when i got my hair cut last time, i got it layered, so the dreads are all different lengths - i love the way it looks!!
