Man i hate how i always have huge gaps in between my participation in this community. Oh well. :)
So alot has happened to my dreads, first off i was about an inch awayfrom cutting them, see, i recently managed to get myself an 1996 Audi A4, for those of you who don't know cars it was a really really expensive car way back when, but i managed to get a really great deal on it. But still since it was an expensive car and i have dreads, most police would assume i was a drug dealer. So to avoid hassle i was going to cut them off and that way i would please my parents as well. BUT... my parents this past weekend deceided that they ACTUALLY WANT (!!) a few grad photos with my dreads!! 0_0!
SOOooo... this is wonderful, i get to keep my dreads (althought the cop thing still bugs me), and possibly keep them till next summer if not longer. But, one condition has been imposed on me, i have to get them tidy-ed up. So now i'm looking for little shops that do dreads. And anyone who has ever gone to a dread shop or knows of one in the montreal, quebec, boston or any points east of those places, i would love to hear your reccomendations. Any further than that and it'd be too much of a road trip for me to do in 2-3 days. :/ And i'm a little less keen on going to the states for fear they'll tear my car apart looking for drugs and then leave me with a mess of parts but i'm still willing to go for it'd be an adventure.
anywho pictures soon i hope (as soon as i get a day off work) and they may even be naughty pictures. tee hehe. ;)
I’m finally ready to get dreads. I’ve been reading all kinds of stuff online and following many communities to learn whatever I can about them. The only problem is that I know that I cannot reach the back of my head to backcomb and nobody I know is skilled enough to do them for me. I know they shouldn’t be that hard for someone else to do for me, but I would really rather get them off to a promising start and not leave myself worrying about them constantly.
So, does anyone know of somewhere in Florida where I can get them done? I’d like to go to someone that can show me how they are created and teach me a little about maintenance and other things that I need to know (all the stuff that I can’t learn from the internet). I don’t really want to ask random salons because they’ll probably lie and say they can do them and then mess up my hair just to make some money. Maybe I just need to meet some better friends.
I live in West Palm Beach and Orlando for parts of the year. This leaves me able to travel to anywhere in Florida, so any suggestions? I don’t need to go to a professional stylist or anyone with a degree; so, if anyone knows how to dread and is willing to teach me about dreads/maintenance, I’d pay for your skills.
