month old dreads are hell. ew, dandruff.

picsCollapse )

is there a limit as to how thin a dread can be? I got a few that are thinner than a pencil. also, as hair is growing, should I be twist and rolling the roots around to snarl them, or will they do that eventually on their own?

thanks and love.

rubber bands [22 Aug 2004|02:59pm]
After you've sectioned off your hair with hairties or rubber bands, can you pick up a section and just dread it with the band still at the roots? I mean obviously you can, I just wondered if that causes problems with the dreading of your roots later. I ask because I'd rather have thin dreads at the roots than a big wide section. Thanks

'Cause I'm half-shorn, I don't have the full head of dreads that many of you do -- but today as I was looking in the mirror I began to make a list of reasons to love my forming dreads. I've been having total "morning hair" ALL DAY today too so I really needed to think about the positives. I thought I'd share them:

* I save time and money on choosing and buying shampoo.

* The best "products" to use on dreaded hair are natural, simple things that don't cost much and can be prepared at home.

* I don't have to shampoo every other day to keep it from looking flat and greasy.

* Messy = good.

* Every dread has its own traits: loops, lumps, bends, loose strands. I know my hair better than I did when it was smooth.

* To fix it up, I don't comb, curl, gel or spray it. I just touch it.

* No need for elastics or clips -- just use one dread as a tie for the rest.

* Other dreadheads from all walks of life bond with me over them.

* I look conspicuously individualistic and anti-establishment in establishments I already didn't have much use for, i.e.: upscale shopping malls, overpriced boutiques, trendy restaurants and corporate headquarters.

* Dreads are a fun decorating project.

* Dreads gave my limp, thin hair more presence and character.

If anyone has more to add, please share, I'd love to read them.

has anyone ever used limejuice on their dreads?
would it have the same effect as lemon juice?

i was going through my fridge today looking for the lemonjuice and i came across some limejuice..i'm very tempted to try it.
