When you mix the salt and water, do you heat the water and dissolve the salt in it, or do you just mix them and pour?
I've had a big container of sea salt just sitting on my counter for a while, because I've been too confused to use it. Your help would be appreciated by me and my dreadies.
Hi, um, im kinda new, i joined a few days ago but i was kinda shy, anyway, um, hi, er, i have uneven different length hair, well, erm, kinda, shaggy you might say, um, i was wondering, if my hair is eligible for dreading, how i would do it, and if its long enough to even attempt.....please...

Come on now. I'll give it another week. We could reeeeally use some nice banners and there are over EIGHT HUNDRED of you people.
Get ta cracking!
I only asked because the community was a paid account when I was made moderator so I figured it should be kept up. Normally, I'd take care of it but I'm a poor college kid at the moment. Sorry if this seemed like begging.
And thanks to mcbloom for the help.
after realising that there are no shops i know of that sell beads...
i made my own =)

but can we please make a bigger link the the FAQ's page on the user info or something. it seems like almost half the posts are people without dreads posting pictures to see if they should get them. its just the same question over and over again.
so ms/mr moderator... can we do something about this?
How did it work for you?
Edit Note: Actually... I'm gonna submit this
I think it's funny, but if y'all don't like it I'll take it like a man and go cry in a corner.
any tips on cutting and trimming dreads?
i hate that, i-just-cut-my-hair look.
i'm thinking of trimming up the loose ends on most of them, but leaving a few of the longer ones just for added goof.
my dreads are 1 week old now!! yaaaay but im told i have 2 wash them because they smell haha, any washing suggestions? im planning on using dread shampoo and wearing a stocking on my head lol
is this normal? what have you done for itchy head?
thanks in advance.
I'm going to do it the backcombing way, partially because of my own impatience, and a lot because my mother is being so nice about it that I feel I should make them as neat looking as possible.
What I wanted to ask you guys, who all seem to know what you're doing, what kind of soap you use to wash your dreads. I read that you can't use perfumes or anything that leaves a residue. Can you get soap like this at a regular store, or do you have to order it?
But now I have to wait for the hair to grow out. Cuz the other day I went crazy and chopped it all off. What I'm thinking is keeping some bangs or something undreaded. Those who have done that (this is basically a female thing, i believe) let me know how it turned out, pics maybe?
but i'm tall and i guess thick. not even chubby but like.. thick. i dunno. I'm worried that I'll look funny. its vain and shallow, but hair does that. anyway. just wanted to know what people think about banged dreads
i just finished dreading my hair this past weekend - and i've got some issues here. my hair is naturally wavy/kinda curly, and the dreads keep trying to do this, which is fine by me... except that the ends fall apart all the time and i'm backcombing and palm rolling the dreads every day to try to keep them together. is this normal? i'm going to do some salt water spraying tomorrow to satisfy my eager need to shampoo...hopefully that will help tighten them up a bit.
i did the dreads all by myself, and my arms were pretty tired, so maybe i just screwed up and didn't comb them tight enough in the first place.
for the contest no less
If anyone has any quick, helpful info on how to cover up bald spots, thanks! I think I'll just try to smush everything back in to place tonight with a hat.
Oh, and my dreads now 10 days old, and getting better all the time. My brother got me a Bob Marley and the Wailers DVD for my birthday; good music + good hairdo.
