Aren't I a lucky gal. I have an itchy scalp already from dreadlocks, now i have an itchy body. Damn me for having the chicken pox at sixteen.
i know plenty of people here in GUDU don't use knottyboy, or even any products at all, but i was shocked by how GREAT their tightening gel smells. i opened the jar and the the scent of lime filled the room. now my head smells so delicious.
so i put one dread in my hair and of course that one tempted me to put more in. so now i have about 10 that i have placed randomly around. i think i am going to put in a few and then let the rest come in themselves. i have straight thin hair and it would take years for it to dread. so i am going to push them a little into growing like i did last time. except this time i am going to have a bunch of little ones instead of having less than 30 big ones. i am so excited to get them back. i have missed my babies.
i am still on a job search though. just a question.. what kinds of jobs does everyone have? and what kind of difficulties has everyone faced with finding and/or keeping a job with dreads?
Ok. What I want to ask is not lack of patience on my part, I PROMISE! *giggle* I was playing around with my hair tonight while watching the tele and was kind of twisting my hair....when I got up to use the restroom, I looked in the mirror and my short hair was in these little twisty spikes. SO, I grabbed a comb and a little chunk of hair and started back combing some random sections. In the top back part of my hair (which is about 3 inches long) I got some knotty spikes. In the front (which is about 4-5 inches long) I was able to get some downward spiking knots. I am saying knots because I know they are technically not dreads.
Do you dreadies think it would be possible to dread parts of my hair while it this short? I really liked the way it looks. And since I wear my hair spiky anyway right now as I am growing it, it would kind of help keep it from getting on my nerves. I don't know if it is too short to hold a dread or not. But is it possible to dread your hair short and then grow them out as long dreads?
I am kind of excited about this idea. I am eager to hear what you all think.
