Naturally Again [30 Aug 2004|11:29am]
[ mood | giddy ]

I'm happy to announce the birth of tiny irregular infant dreads sprouting all over my head. Nothing but time, water, and soap have touched my scalp. Well lets not forget sweat.

I don't get dreads.
I grow them

Have had my dreads for about a week now, they're still a bit on the loose/thin side and they keep falling apart, but they're making progress. Since I've had them I feel really different...they've had a really positive impact on me somehow. Anyways, some pictures;

Wash or Wear? [30 Aug 2004|02:31pm]
[ mood | confused ]

I'm confused. I don't yet have dreads, so please bear with me.

When you say you don't wash your dreads do you mean "get them wet" or "shampoo"? Do you folks take only baths or wear shower caps, or what?

Sorry for the silly question.....

hi there... i've been in this community for a while, and i've finally come to the conclusion that i want dreads of my own- i mean i always have, but i've never gotten the guts to go through with it (with the whole shaving of the head thing and job opportunities and such). at this point i think everything will work out fine, but i wanted to ask you guys for your advice. i have pretty long hair, and it's also pretty straight. what would be the best way to go about this? and also do you think i have the right face to pull off dreads? i've gotten mixed emotions from my friends and family, but i figured ya'll would be able to tell me better than others could. any input would be greatly appreciated!!

Anyone in NYC know of a good place in the east village (or anywhere else) that's good for buying hemp and beads?

God Damn those scissors [30 Aug 2004|06:22pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

I had three dreads growing together, so i decided to cut them apart, BAAAAD idea, i got the first one off the other two, then i got the other two apart, but SUDDENLY one fell to the ground. This sucks hahaha, actually its pretty funny really, but whatever it's not like you can tell or anything :)

hi i'm kate and i've been stalking this community for a while now (and have pined over dreads for about five years..) and was wondering if any of you (or anyone you know) started dreading with fairly short hair? i'm not even sure if i can even dread my hair once it's grown a bit, due to parents and my job, but i'm still very curious. people say that the sooner you do it the better they'll turn out but i'm looking for personal examples.
here's a picture of me and my weird hair from a couple months ago, so it's an inch or more longer:

the back is far too short (about an inch long because i get sick of the mullet feel) so i'll have to wait and suffer through some growing but still. any stories would be wonderful, thanks :)

actually, while i'm here would i even look decent with dreads?
