hair dye

so im new here, and actually new to livejournal also, i actually only made an account so i could join a dread community. But anyway, ive had dreads for about 6 months or so, and i want to dye them, and i really have no idea what to use or even how to do it, or how i should go about doing or anything. So if any of you have any tips for me, that would be very great. thanks

3 Days until Dreads

Hello again, It's me, Sarah. Remember the read head excited about her coming dreads? I have 3 days to wait until I have my dreadlocks. I've stopped conditioning my hair altogether now and since I have very coarse hair it is super frizzy. My little fly aways are everywhere, LOL. I'm using Manuke shampoo from the body shop which is supposed to be residue free. What kind of shampoo does everyone here use?
So far i've concluded that the best way to get your dreads really tight is the palm rolling method. I've also been informed that wax is bad but the person who is doing my hair swears by it so i'll have to talk to her about it. Someone has also mentioned spraying sea salt water on your dreads after washing will help with the locking process. Anyone have idea on if this works or is worthwhile? I don't have a digital camera so i'm pretty upset at not being able to document the begginings of my dreads. I am planning on buying one very soon though. Hopefully Neko will take pictures after mine are done on Tuesday.
Everyones dreads are so amazing and unique. SO many beautiful faces and warm smiles. I love all of your pictures and posts. Thanks for all the info and help guys.Your great!!

I hate being in the South, as far as my hair is concerned.

I've had a lot of people compliment me for my hair, or have been genuinely interested in it. But, I've had far too many people criticize it, mainly adults. It's almost impossible to find employment.

And then today my dad got on to me about having beads in my hair. My friend blows glass, and recently gave me two glass beads that I sport proudly.

I just don't understand some people's fixation with suppression of self expression.

It's funny story time.

I was getting gas earlier today and the man at the pump infront of mine was looking at me strangely. I ignored him, but then he walked up to me and our conversation went like this:

man: excuse me..
me: yes?
man: are you black?

- now, let me pause for a moment to tell you that well, i am the whitest white girl ever. don't believe me? then have a look at this picture, i am so pale that i GLOW.Collapse )
ok back to the converastion:
man: are you black? (this man is white, by the way)
me: umm... no.
man: are you mixed?
me: no.
man: are you spanish?
me: no.
man: hawaiian?
man: really? what is your family's background?
me: i am 100% french.
man: ok so, how did you get your hair like that if you're just white? because i have a sister who married this guy from hawaii, and their daughter can't even get her hair like that. and she's mixed.
me: um, anyone can have dreads.
man: i don't know about that...

-At this point I didn't really feel like answering any more of his questions regarding my nationality. He just shrugged and got in his car, and as he drove away I saw a bumper sticker on the back of his truck that said "PROUD TO BE A REDNECK!"

... aaaand I'll let you all form your own conclusions about that :)

does anyone have any pros or cons on sewing with thread?

i have a few dreads here and there that i have sewn, and i'm debating whether or not to do my entire head. i don't want to end up regretting it.

for the most part i don't mind my loose hairs, but lately i've just been in a mood to have them look nicely kept.
