Hemp-tie action! [14 Dec 2004|01:44am]
Hey fellow dreadyheadies,

My dreads are 6 days away from their first birthday!!! I'm going to make a birthday post around then, it's crazy to see how much they've changed!

Today I washed my dreads, and had to go out (and it's friggin cold up here in Ottawa!), so I went to put my hair in a pony tail...only to find I'd lost my hair elastic. I happened to have a hemp bracelet on hand, so I figured why not try that....and it turned out really cool! So of course I had to take pictures.

HEMP-DREAD ACTION!Collapse )

Quick question: [14 Dec 2004|02:22pm]
[ mood | worried ]

I noticed a lot of the posts say things like "EDIT: IF THIS OFFENDS YOU, PLEASE DELETE!"

Am I power hungry? Am I delete happy? If so, I want to be official:

I'M SORRY!

Honestly, I haven't deleted a post for being off topic in months (except the occasional community spam and the one about dirty hippies). Don't be scared of me. I'm friendly and don't bite.

Peace offering.

Pictures, por favor? [14 Dec 2004|04:01pm]
[ mood | sick ]

If you have naturally straight hair, now dreads, post pictures!

I'm just curious because I tried locks two summers back and with a lack of curls, it didn't work out so well. Now I have very lose synthetic dreads, and all of my roots have dreaded together in 4 short weeks. After senior pictures, a friend and I are going to attempt to dread up again.

So I'm looking for some inspiration; dreadie success with straight hair.

Hey guys I'm new here and I've had dreads since July 30th. It took my friend 17 hours to do them. I know that's a long time but they came out perfect and looked like I've had them for months so I guess it was worth it :)

I'm thinking about dying them. Any suggestion? Complications I should be aware of? What color do you suggest? The whole head? Some dreads? Just the tips? I want suggestions!!! Thanks. I don't know how to use LJ cut, so here is a pic of em...

True or false? [14 Dec 2004|07:36pm]
I really want dreads, I have since I was like 7 when I saw this guy with them and thought he was the coolest guy in the world.

My moms a little weird about it though, sayin I'd have to shave my head to get rid of them.

But I read online that you could soak your dreads in conditioner and slowly brush them out. Is that true or not?

"excuse me, i do believe that is my raincoat..." [14 Dec 2004|08:37pm]
In the hustle bustle of life i have had absolutely no time to post here in the last few months :( but i've been here reading everything you guys have been saying. i promise i will post pictures and post more often, starting as soon as possible.
So my dreads are doing pretty well right now, ripped them all apart from where they were having a wee dread orgy and it created loads of fuzz :( but other than that its all good.

Heres my problem... It's the Christmas dance at my school this week and i want to do something different with my hair, bearing in mind i'm a guy, my dreads are about shoulder length and i have to look "formal" for the dance. Any ideas anyone? please!
