What's a good way to knot up my roots as they grow?
i was taking that horsetail stuff.. for about 2 months. i took 2 pills three times a day. wow. so it was a lot. and i didnt really start seeing results until about 20 days. but damn. i stopped taking them about a month ago, and theyre still growing like crazy.. but now i kind of want them to stop. my roots cant catch up and dread that fast, and then they grow some more. i'm happy my dreads are longer, but now i wish i didn't take it at all because i have about 2-3 inches of undreaded hair, and then dreads. i mean, i know it takes patience and it will all be ok. just a fair warning, and my own 2 cents.
yesterday afetr school one of my teachers came up to me and told me how much she liked my hair! She said that she'd love to have dreads but her husband says no :( We asked some other kids from school and they were all "eww, no those are dirty and people dont wash they're hair" and she looks and me "do you wash your hair??" and im like "uuh...yea!"
stupid people. IMO she'd look awsome with them! her main reason for them is that she hates brushing her hair :)
My dreadies could not be happier. I have paid so much attention to them to day that my head is screaming in pain. So as i said in my last post i am starting to get lots and lots of loopies. It makes my dreads look like well crap. I know that they are not going to look good right away but they should look better than they do. So i took peoples advice and i put beads in them. I only have one kind and color. The beads are red with a weird flower pattern on them. I think that they look cool. I put one glass bead in there, and two other little plain ones. I also wrapped some for my little guys in hemp to try and help the loopies to go away. If any of this is a bad idea please tell me. THe hemp makes the hair so much heavier but i like the way that it looks and feels. I feel really good about my hair and the choice that i made to have dreads. And it helps out a lot that i know that a lot of you had problems at first with liking them and with loops and stuff. So i want to thank everyone of you dreadheads out there for helping me out and being 100% who you want to be not matter what people think.
i promise that i will get pictures up soon, i am really bad at taking pictures...which is funny because i am a photo major.
