ok...i know alot of you hate dread perms but alot of you gave me some really good feedback on them, so....i'm getting my dreadperm on tuesday. i'm really excited, but kinda scared at the same time. for those of you that have had dreadperms, how long did it take for the wave in it to settle down? and how long did you wait until you washed it the first time?
maybe this si a dumb question, but when riding roller coasters, should i take any kind of precautions like wearing a tam or them up? Or will the wind be nice for them? I'm going to Six Flags tonight and the thought just occured to me....
I'm adding some more posts to the memories. In the spirit of that, I'm asking that as many people as possible respond to the next few posts I make. That way, people will have lots of answers when they check for them later.
Question: Does anyone have any creative ideas on how to make tams, headbands, beads and other accessories that look good with dreadlocks. Do you have any links to websites that might sell these things?
I know this question was asked before but we have some many new members now and the answers are always so wonderful.
What do your dreadlocks mean to you?
I don't know why or how or when or who knows what else but I'm starting to feel like these dreads that are attached to my head aren't mine anymore. When I looked at myself in the mirror today it felt like I was wearing a wig. Très bizarre. People have been asking me more & more often when I'm gonna give them the Big Chop or Comb Out. I don't know. I'm not letting them convince me into doing anything at the moment, but the more I think about, the more it seems like it's the right thing to do. I still love my locks loads. Maybe I'm just having a bad dreadday? Dunno. Maybe they need a change. Dunno.
They've helped me loads throughout the past 2.5 years, even though they've had their crappy days. People still look at me like I'm "that friggin' crazy hippie" but I've gotten well past the point of caring about silly things like that. I LAUGH at them now, sway my hair in their faces, let them know I'm PROUD to be whatever/whoever this moogle one is. Has anyone else noticed how your perceptions towards certain things have changed since you locked up? I definately think I've gotten more open to other people's views on things. Not sure if it's coz of the locks. It's just different. Not just another hairstyle to me. I'm not sure how to explain it really. I think they've made me a happier person, not coz my 'whatthehellamIgonnadotomyhair' problem finally had been solved, but coz they've made me think in different ways. I've never really been confident about my appearance, so letting my hair dread wasn't quite an obvious choice seeing people would definately notice me now. I've always hated it when people stare at you, it makes me think I've got something on my face or gives me this embarrassing feeling. But you shouldn't be embarrassed about yourself, there's nothing wrong with you. Right? Except I kept/keep thinking there is. Maybe that's it. I might want to fit in again for some strange, unknown reason. Can you say b-a-a? ARGH! I'm blabbering again.
Mes excuses for the semi-rant. But I still don't know :/
I never really realised that Jimmy Urine of Mindless Self Indulgence has a head of dreads. I'd always assumed it was gelled and hairsprayed up.
