**first post** be gentle...

Wetting my pants about thursday. I'M FINALLY getting my hair dreadlocked. I tried to a few months ago but it was pretty short then and my boyfriend (who had been nominated to do it as I'm pathetic at hair things like that) gave up after 4 of em and they didn't take very well. This time they *will* work ^determined^ grr.
So just saying hello. Hello.


Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Excited.

Hey All.

Some of you might remember me. I used to have dreads, had them for about 5 months then I was up at 4 in the morning and just started to take them out. I think I was delirious because I miss them like crazy.

When I did them I had two friends from New York help, but I am back in school in Rhode Island and I was wondering if anyone on here is close to URI and can help me dread it up. I already have one minidread forming at the back of my head naturally so it shouldn't be too hard.

Thanks all, oh and maybe in case there are no rhode islanders, does anyone know a place in Rhode Island/Connecticut/Mass area that does dreads?

Thanks Again!

Dreadlock Diary

5 days old. Itchy as hell at the back. Put a bead on one. Wasps don't seem to like my hair as much, which is good. They'll fly up to me and fly away repulsed. They used to find me attract and I would even kiss them! But alas, no longer!

loose dreadies...

parts of my dreads are loose (like this one that i can easily slip my finger through at the top)... all my tips are knotted and rubberband and most of my roots are knotted and it seems like the rest of my dreads have loose spots inbetween, im afraid to try and back comb these loose parts because i rubberbanded my hair(i hope this makes sence)... i dont know if this is really bad or if this is considered normal?... any suggestions?

General Consensus

I am debating bleaching my dreadies bright blonde, because it is oh so hot and I am recruiting all you lovely people for your opinion. I love my natural red colour, but I use to obsess with dying my hair before my dreads and it is happening again.

One who here has died them blonde, and how did they feel after?
Two I am really afraid I will get dye stuck in them, so how do I got about doing it

Also note, my hair grows really an inch or more a month *boo*

please, be kind, and give me your opinion!
