newbie

Hey everybody, I have dreads 2 and I love them 2 and I have them right now for like 3 years :P They are pretty ... eeehm fuckt right now because I didn't do anything about them for a few months. ANYWAY, I'm getting some new ones pretty soon when the time and money is right :)
Have some pictures to share :D

Keep on Truckin'

I just moved, and this marks the end of my first two weeks of solid bike riding to work, here in Toronto.

Its flown by and I love exploring routes to work, one day at a time. The bike needs a bit of work, but its in good enough shape to get me around. The biggest adjustment has been the people in vehicles around me, commuters anxious to get to work and quick to see any cyclist as an object rather than a fragile being.

Today however, was amusing.

You get honked at a lot, and today, I had a 20 something white male who looked like a construction worker lean out the passenger window and yell 'fucking hippie !' as the car blew past at 45km/h. Meh, whatever.

After a series of lights, I started down the home stretch to work, and this horn blasts in my ear from a tandem truck in the lane beside me. Unnerved by the size of the vehicle beside me, I curse, and turn to see a thirtysomething black male, dreadlocked with his fist raised in exultation in the driver seat, he leans out the passenger window at the red light and yells "Yah muy brother !" .

The universe balances itself out immediately sometimes. Its often obnoxious, and seems to have a sense of irony. But its nice to feel not so alone on my little bike.

hi!

well hey, ive been watchin this for a while now, pondering over gettin dreds or not, they look ever so koool on yall, but i have rlly staraight thin hair, and im a bit weary of gettin dreds, hmm duno how to explain this, but wont there be big gaps? as my hair is thinish, and just thinking tht it may look stupid thts all, because all the dreds ive seen in ppl have been like wow, and they look perfect, and full if you get my meaning. And im just wonderin if anyone of you have thin hair? who got dreds? and if they turned out good.

thnks

Hey folks! I want dreads. I'm a white guy with wavy hair. How long do you have to grow it before you can dread it?

I can't do it right now anyway becasue I have a corporate job (much to my shame) but hopefully that won't last too long and then......dreadlock paradise!

Cheers all!

ocean water vs. salt water

hey! im leaving for the Sea Isle tomorrow for 2 weeks. I plan on bathing my dreads in the beautiful ocean as much as i can during those 2 weeks. I was wondering if theres a difference between dunking them in the ocean and spraying them down with just some salt-water. Does that sound stupid? lol you guyz always have great answers to my new dread questions. thanks!

baby dreadies

So a friend of mine got himself some dreadies too :)
he was planning it for like a year but he had to grow his hair the right size and the guy who made them now finally had the time..
and now he has some bad-ass beautiful 3 weeks-old dreadies :)

(no subject)

how do you go about dreading multiple dreads together?
when i started dreading my hair i thought they were going to turn out being a lot fatter than i wanted them to be, but it's been about a month and a half and they're a lot thinner than i would like them.
