just a cute little story

i was walking my puppy today and one of my neighbors came up
to us and said

her: i just wanted to tell you how much i love your hair
me: thanks
her: yea, i had dreads 18 years ago
me: realy how long did you have them??
her: 4 months, then i got sick of then
me: :)
i just tought it was cute, because she a mom with 2 young kids and she used to have dreads. most people her age ask "why did you do that?" and "when will you take them out"
and she had them :) shes so cool. and shes a really nice lady too.

1 year

So this marks the one year for my dreads. I Started June 23 last year took almost a month doing them by myself with little help from my boyfiend on sectioning the back. I was slowly taking out the extensions and dreading and resectioning the hair.
I have used no wax, just lemon juice, aloe, and sea salt.
Most of the black ones are real, all colors are extensions.
Lots of pics..

Hey. Does anyone here live in the boston newton brookline area? I am new, but have wanted and been doing my share of learning about dreadlocks for a long time, and the time has come. I have been planning on going to a african place (really, the dont even speak english) to get them done. I havve blond hair. I had braids like 5 months ago:[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v601/righteousbabe/ddd89691.jpg

I NEED THEM BY THIS WED.!!! I am a lil bit desperate, and ill adjust to whatever the rules (your place, mine, etc...)
This is my hair now. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v601/righteousbabe/SundayInBackBay5-29-05008.jpg

Will this dread? Someone told me they knew someone who had blond hair and it dreaded very strange in wrong directions...?

Is it possible for me to have thin dreads?

I was introduced to dreads by ani difranco, who remains my idol, and role model, and mostinfluential person in my life, as well as the one and only bob marley.
