hello, my name is Amelia and i am a dreadlock enthusiast.
umm a little bit about me: i'll be nineteen in a couple weeks and i still live with my parents, although i'll be moving out within the next couple of months. hmmm, oh, i live in Hawai'i.
unfortunately though, i do not have dreadlocks. but there are quite a few people in my town who do, and i figured it'd be good for me - i have long hair (like lower-middle back) and it falls out like crazy (haha not like alopecia, i'm not going bald). but i can't even put my hair down and back up without a bunch of hairs attaching to the back of my shirt or jacket or arm. it's flippin annoying.
so i had sort of an epiphany the other day and finally realized that dreading would keep all those little fuckers in their place.
so, now i'm here. i decided to join this community because the info page says it's not just for people with dreads, but 'dreadlock enthusiasts', which i definately am. and it looks like the most updated community with the least drama. :)
and i have a couple questions:
1. i know dreads love stray hairs, but do you think in the long run that those hairs would cause a problem? like maybe a dread falling out? (i don't have thin hair, btw)
and 2. does anyone know of a non-residue shampoo that you could just find at the grocery store, and not have to order it online?( Collapse )
p.s. i'm sorry for rambling. if an lj-cut is warranted for the whole thing, i will fix it. :)
