Today I'm feeling Whimsical; don't know what it means, but the sound describes my feeling perfectly. I'm sitting at college bored out of my wits, in the 'quiet' room- a section of the library with computers where talking is a sin. All i can hear is the typing of keyboards- mine is the loadest, its distressing. I'm sure people are peering at me, thinking; 'oh my god, what a hippy'- some one shouted that at my the other day, as if it should be offensive! - I smiled to myself...

Happy thoughts please :)

Hi everyone. I'm planning on getting dreds after my trip to Paris. I have a few questions though.
1. My hair is orange right now, how much of a problem is it to dye dreds brown? And long would I have to wait before I decided to do it? Contemplating if I should dye it before I start or after..
2. Is it better to have damaged hair or virgin hair to first start dreading?
Thank you all. I can't wait to start.

Hey everybody. I am new to this community and am researching into getting dreads. My hair is pretty short right now and I am trying to grow it out. I looked through the FAQ section to try and answer a lot of my questions and most of them were answered there.
I do have another question though. Does anyone here who has dreads also have psoriasis on their scalp? I have had it since I was a kid. For anyone who doesn't know what it is, psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that itches with scaling red patches. Mine isn't super bad but it does get on my nerves sometimes. I just wanted to know if anyone with dreadies has this problem and what they have done to help it. I often use tea tree oil or peppermint on my scalp but that doesn't always help. I am just concerned that the problem could get worse if I were to dread my hair eventually.
This seems like a great community.
Thanks a lot.
Peace, love and light,
