So I remember a post a while back where someone said something about there being so few actors who have dreads. I feel inspired to post my favorite dreaded actor Alex Désert (also one of the lead singers from Hepcat). What an underated and extremely talented actor.

Old ladies DO like dreads

So, finally got back to the ocean and i finally figured out something... Dreadheads belong at the beach.

Really when you think of Dreadheads, they just naturally fit in at the beach... it's like the ultimate surfer hairdo... kinda...

Anywho i was at the beach this past weekend bodyboarding in the HUGE swells that a tropical storm brought and these americans were at the beach too. (I'm from Nova Scotia... Canada) and they all thought i was a semi-pro surfer/beachbum... also one of the older ladies with them really liked my dreads... like alot! :D

Plus you know, the whole Salt water for my dreads was good too. :)

PLus coming home this weekend this random Old lady stopped me while i was putting gas in my car and asked me how long i had had my dreads, and how long i was going to keep them, etc, etc...

So 2 older ladies asking me about my dreads; and liking them, in one weekend... makes me feel pretty darn good. :D

Just thought i'd share... pictures to follow soon!! :D

there was some talk about jobs and getting jobs with dreads recently.

well, after two months of interviews and delays, i just got offered a job in a *very* corporate environment! i start in two weeks!

they told me they liked my energy and youth, which i have taken to mean "you don't have to cut your dreads" and believe me, i don't intend to.

i'm so relieved. even if i have to wear a suit every day (which i seriously might).

so it can be done. we're proving it. yay! we rock.

I am mad. :( I have had my dreadies for a little over a month and my friends keep saying they want to take me to a af-amer hair salon and get them "fixed" for me so they look uniform. I keep telling them that dreads take time and that my dreads are going to look like this for awhile but everyone is like "why don't you cut off your tips? why don't you just undread them?" Argh! It makes me soooo mad!

newbie. gosh, what a cliché.

anyway.. i've been wanting dreadlocks for ages, and currently i have my hair in multicoloured wool wraps

however, my hair is extremely thin, and as (i think) you can see, i had to use a huge patch of head to get one really thin wrap.
this is what has always put me off about getting dreadlocks, because if i do them, i'll end up with about 8 thin ones, and, to be quite blunt, they'll look like shit.
so basically i was wondering if any of you guys knew anything (or any way) of making it so that they'd look thicker? anything i can do?

1 year and 2 month old.

my dreads are natural and i don't put in them any chimical product or wax. And since now 1 year and 2 months, they live freely, happy. in truth , I does not maintain them any more, they live by them . they turn over at the wild state
