Hey everybody. This may seem like a stupid question, but for new dreads, how do you sleep on them at night without having them explode and giving yourself hella work to do when you get up in the morning?
I just joined. im 18 and from metro detroit, michigan. I loooooove everything about dreads. i think theyre beautiful. anyways, just wanted to say hello to you all. anyone else in here from the detroit area?
Love and Light
well, the semester is starting and i'll be swimming twice a week...i'm afraid it's going to be a hard semester for my dreads. i need some advice. i think that i can possibly fit them under a cap...maybe. i don't know. i'm going to try that. i'm going to look ridiculous. haha.
also, i'm probably going to be at the gym more often too...gah. i get so stressed out whenever i have to wash my hair. haha.
so any of you active folks have some tips for me?
pictures when i get back to my dorm- they're hitting their third month!!!
My dreads are almost six months old and I decided to clip the ends of a few of them. A week ago I snipped and rounded off several on top of my head, because they were the most sturdiest and played with and I needed to take care of some lose hairs.
Before I do anything more, I would like to know what you have found to be good cut dreads with. I either use one blade of scissors and sort of gnaw at the piece for a while, or the removeable replacement of women's razors. Neither are 100% satisfactory.
How about you?
i posted pictures yesterday i think
there is one dread in the back that was one of the nest ones and i took half of it out..it was one of the 1st to form...it took like...30mins to do...i dont know wwhy i didnt it...
i feel so unpretty...i know i cant get rid of these cause;
#1. i'll most likely have to cut them out
#2. even if i dont i will have VERY damaged hair ans have to cut it anyhow
#3. it will take me SO LONG and i will be so unhappy and most likely will have them again...
so what now?
what do you think?
those that saw me/see me
i feel gross and just stupid...
whats going on... just joined...
i had some dreads up till about 2 weeks ago but i had to take them out for reasons id rather not mention.
but damn i miss them.
so im dreading up again in a few weeks...
they are so hott on everyone.
i dunno, add me or whatever floats your boat.
i just updated yesterday, so im sorry if you're getting annoyed. but i was looking through the faq page, and i read about aloe and salt water. and i was wondering, which one do you suggest? or if you even suggest them at all. i just started dreading up yesterday, and i just want to make sure they are healthy and such. so i was wondering if i should use either of these things, this early at least. will they help or hurt, or do absolutly nothing? have any of you used either of them, and what were your results? thank you, and sorry for posting so much! : ]
