So I was here.. a long time ago. On a different name (The RatQueen). Um. I'm Jane.. I'm 18. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas. I'm at about.. seven months, I guess, and I felt like sharing a few pictures. My tips are driving me insane.. I made the mistake of cutting my loose tips off, so I kind of have.. weird square dreadlocks. But I'm just getting over that flat stage.. they're rounding out on their own. I'm too lazy to roll them or anything.. I clip my fly aways time to time, but.. I kinda like the crazy homeless messy look. I've got too much junk in them, though. I have to find a way to cut the wool out. I hate how it looks.

Fair warning.. I make a lot of stupid faces in photos.XD And some of these are huge.

i have been in this community for the longest time and i haven't posted. maybe once.
my knots are about seven months old. i recently started using that knottyboy peppermint gel and the dreads are improving. i still have a lot of loose hair though and i have no idea how to palm roll my roots, palm roll the right way at least. because i lack the palm rolling skills i'm still using rubber bands to hold my roots in place. any ideas? also, is it true that you can use the substance inside an aloe plant to tighten your dreads?

(no subject) taking a bath with the sandlewood incense burning,a candle in the corner. With a bit of teatree oil and bakingsoda in the watter thats steaming hot. soaking the dreads and realaxing big time.

no I don't care if people think me a sissy feels damn good to relax maybe they need to try it for if there bugging on me they prob need to relax life is too short(added cuz I know some friends in personal journal are like that not many but a few)
how happy is the blameless vestal's lot

how do you...

get rid of dandruff? I think this has been posted before but it wasn't in memories. I tried turning the shower head onto "massage" and shaking my head under it over and over and over but nothing happened and it won't come out! Anyone have any success stories?


so i was sitting in my eastern philosophy class today and i read something written on the desk and i'm not quite sure what i think about it.

and i quote:
"Warning: Dreadlocks are cultural rape, whitey"

as a little background i go to university of vermont, a very big "hippie" school, so about one in ten people here have dreads.

i'm curious to see what you all have to say about that.

be well,
