Dreadlock beards: It can be done!

Now, assuming that I found this on a rasta page he probably didn't "make" the beard, so I'm not sure if they can be made but I'm sure it's worth the coercing cuz they're dead sexy

ok, i have a few questions when it comes to letting your dreads go naturally.

well, i've had my dreads for about, 4 days, and a lot of people keep asking me where i got them done, and that they look like i got them done. i'm like 'i just backcombed them myself' hehe. ok, well, i'm letting them go natural, because, i don't like the wax.

how can i keep my dreads from growing togther

how can i keep them from being really messy

and how long does it usually take for them to start growing again..

if i have anymore questions i'll ask. ;]

Me and my lover panda say hello! I'm happy because so many people gave me crap when I started the locks, but they all seem to be coming around. Even ::shudder:: my parents. I still get a lot of gay jokes.. but.. none the less, I'm still loving the dreads! This community makes me (and my lover panda) very happy.

woot =)

is it bad to be re-backcombing pretty much every day? my dreads (that are one month old TODAY!) always look nice and semi tight when i go to bed, when i wake up they're a loose mess. so i rebackcomb and whatnot until they look good again. is this bad for my hair?

to dread (now) or not to dread (now)

it's been over a year -wow!

i have been loving my regular hair .
shampoo-ing it and it being all soft

i also have been thinking it maybe time to lock up again (making #4 in 9 years)

here are my reasons TO lock up right now:

1. locks just fit me

2. im not a hair-do girl , i've tryed . i just don't do anything with it .
(i made up enough hairstyle time in the 80's)

3. i always grow them back as much as i always cut them , they make me feel like my
skin fits me better.

here are my reasons NOT TO lock up right now:

1. i always cut them - i've had them 3 time in 9 years and i always cut them

2. im kinda enjoying having regular hair

3. i dunno if i think it would look good if i locked it up with it at the length it is.

what are your thoughts - here's a recent pic

Pictures are great. I love them. You guys are hot. But community rules say:

Your friend is helpful for large photos and photos that are not worksafe. Use your friend if you are posting more than one photo, or if there is any nudity/obscenity in your photos.
Click here to learn the lj-cut.

That means if you have a post with:
1. Non worksafe photos.
2. More than one photo.
3. Large photos.

Then please use the cut! I hate playing bad cop.

I didnt know what they would do to the page it was the 1st time i ever posted pix and i had no idea how to resize them. I really am truly sorry, pleeeeez 4give me I promise I will learn how to resize them. Again, i totallllllly apologize for that.

Fixity fix fix.

I got my roots fixed today. For only a bottle of wine. Normally people who would have to go would have to go to the hairdresser for what? 37 bucks an hour? I don't know. I had fun, and afterwards, I went shopping. :D Lookie!

Ok, I went to this outdoor-free concert last week. While watching a band, I fell in a bush (long story, but we were standing on a wall, and I lost balance and fell, haha). A few days ago I started getting itchy patches on my arms, and today it spread all over my body, so I went to the doctor, and he said I have poison ivy, and gave me a bunch of cream to put on it.

Now, my head has been itching so bad in a couple of spots, on my scalp. My hair is fairly clean, but I don't know if it's just dread-itchies or poison ivy, but it's driving me crazy.

What should I do? Should I try to put some of the anti-itching cream on my scalp, or try to ignore it? Could the cream harm my dreads? I know you guys aren't doctors, but any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance :D
