tom waits - birds

Whole Foods supermarket is cool.

So I was in a Whole Foods on New Year's and the guy behind the deli counter had either dreadlocks or just tons of hair, all very neatly hidden under a big dread tam.

It was an official Whole Foods dread tam. Provided by the company for its dreadie employees. How cool is that?

(Also, their spinach and feta latkes are scrumptdiddlyumptious.)

Happy New Year everyone!

Hey, I was wondering if theres a way to remove wax from dreads. I've come to my own conclusion that wax isnt good for dreads. heh, is there a way?! i had a look at the memories but there wasnt anything there, so i thought i'd ask..its australian beeswax..

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Picture sizes

Now that I'm home on dial-up, I realize how picture heavy this community is. So I need to remind everyone again:

1. LJ-CUT IS YOUR FRIEND.
Your friend is helpful for large photos and photos that are not worksafe. Use your friend if you are posting more than one photo, or if there is any nudity/obscenity in your photos.
Click here to learn the lj-cut.


No exceptions. NONE. Regardless of the size of your photos. So PLEASE use the lj-cut as the rules states. Here's a way to help you measure whether your large photo is too large. When you look at the community page, if your photo changes the formating of entries (i.e. it's wider that the standard size for the post boxes or you have to scroll sideways to view it)... assume it's too big and throw it under a cut just in case. That's not a rule, just a suggestion.

Hope you all had a great New Years!

Alright, I got sick and tired of waiting for my hair to grow, so i'm doing dreads in my hair, again.
It feels so awesome. I love the way my hair feels all knotted. OH god, it's awesome. I'm so happy.
I only have one but it's amazing. OHHHOHOHFAOHSIDOFHSDIF i'm so happy.! ^___________________^
Sadly some of my hair isn't long enough to dread. (I had to cut a few dreads out) So i'll have to wait for that
hair to grow and once it does, it'll get dreaded. !!!! Ahh i'm so happy. ^_________^

Question:

Ight I've had my dreads a very long time.......but time to time I pull them apart from other ones or it they don't lay right I pull hair loose......and so on

so what is some ways that you have found to get loose hair into dreads or new dreads? please only people who have had dreads for a good amount of time........don't take offense but you learn alot with time.....

and please no crochet......I tried that many times over the years and I dont like it

yeah i think i'm going to comb out my dreads. they're not doing so well and i think i should wait until i can pay them a little more attention. so tomorrow, i'm gonna get rid of them. it makes me sad but i think it's just something that has to be done. i will get them again, but next time i'm going to make sure i take care of them and not let my friends do a crappy job. but i think i will stay in this community because i like looking at your pictures. that is, if that is alright.

Traction Alopecia, eh? :(

New 2005 was not good to me. It must be LA rain that makes me all weepy and sentimental:(

Today in the shower I was pulling (rather gently) my wet dreads and one of them... just came of. A good bottom half of it ended up in my hand.

Is it from the lack of palm rolling? What is it? :( A curse? A conspiracy? A prophetic power? Help!:(
