Alright, enough is enough. My dreads are awful! I love them and all, but they just aren't being cooperative! They are dreading in the middle, but the roots and the bottoms are still just.. normal hair. I'm not sure how to dread the entire lock... any suggestions?
it kind of makes me mad when people ask me "oh, are you trying to grow dreads?"
no, i HAVE dreads. they may not be what 3 year old, smooth, lovely dreadlocks look like, but i have dreads all the same.
i mean, i love them. they make me happy. i was talking to a barista at starbucks last night with kick ass dreads, and we were talking for awhile about them (ya know, that wierd bond of strangers with dreadies) and she laughed and told me it took awhile for hers to "not look like a homeless person) and my supposed best friend was like, "yeah sarah, thats what you look like. i hope they start looking good, because i'm getting embarrassed."
that was pretty cool.
people are lame.
ok so i know a lot of you all get bribes from family/friends to take your dreads out or cut them off. and here is my question to you all: what was the best/weirdest bribe youve ever gotten (that you either took up the offer being presented, or didnt)?
just wondering because this is the best bribe that ive gotten since ive had them:
my dad told me that if i took out my dreads (ive had them roughly 8 months now) that he would give me the car that we share and it would be completely mine when i turned 17, which i will turn in december.
a very tempting bribe but not good enough because ill definately be getting a car when im 18 anyway. so i only have to wait an extra year.
but that is far better then the things he started off with like 'oh you can get any hair style/cut/dye you want if you take them out.'
psh as if dad. this is my ideal hair style >.< no need to go any further.
so yeah give me some feed back because im curious.
I HATE to post in here for like the 2nd time today but, I really REALLY want dreadlocks. Or whatever..as soon as I can get them...
I have little money to buy rubberbands/comb & thats about all I can afford..I have no dreadwax..& have no clue what I should be using wax wise to start my dreads..
I've read the websites, knottyboy/dreadheadhq and learned how to backcomb & everything..but, I've tried to do it..and my roots have been real fuzzy and the rest was just one big fuzz..this is with a plastic comb, though.
If I CAN do it without wax..I just need to know how..and everything because, I'm confused.
Also, if I do this would I palmroll it to get it to stay together..
I don't know what to do know..right now is when I need help the most..& I love this community and I don't want to seem annoying I just need help.
SORRY for the annoyance
Do you (or other people who come into contact with your dreads) find them scratchy or sore to touch?
I am seriously wanting them, but unfortunatley the boyfriend doesn't like them and thinks they will scratch him :|.
