It has been a really long long long time since i have posted but i need a lot of help. Well not really but my dreads do. THe just keep growing out adn ends look really good but i cant keep my roots dreaded. I know that this comes up all the time, but i have read so many different things that i dont know how to put it all together. Is it bad to backcomb your roots after your dreads are already almost a year old (AUG 5 BABY!!!!!) My boyfriend really wants to help me fix them we just need to know the best way to do so. My parents and my boss at work have been giving me a lot of trouble about the way that they are looking right now and i dont want to cut them off but i just dont know what to do. I will do anything i just need to do something. SO if you could please help that would be great. And i will post pictures in about a month for their first birthday!!!! thanks Melissa
Out of curiosity, how long did you let your hair grow before dreading it? I know in the memories section there is a recommended length, but I'm itching to try out short little stubby dreads. My hair is maybe... 3 inches long at the most right now. If left alone, it begins to dread itself. My only concern is that they'll form into weird looking cotton balls atop my head if I let them do their thing. My roots clumped like crazy when I had longer hair + dreads and the dreads shrunk a lot... I couldn't imagine it short. o_O Those who started short or have short dreads currently, please respond with an experience. I'd be most ineterested in hearing it! :)
Hey guys. Yeah, the pink hair is gone. It was attracting the wrong kind of attention for me. Mostly 13 year old pop punk kids (I work in a record store.) It was starting to make me feel kind of childish I guess, so I decided to go more natural for a while. They look really messy in this picture... but... No, actually they ARE just messy as hell. They need help.
i am in the midst of getting my hair dreaded and have a few pictures. my hair is really long and thick, so it's taking forever. but i don't mind because they look great. it's so funny when people freak out like, "oh, those are dirty." and then they're like, "wait, you wash them?" anyway, here they are.
My cat brought fleas into our house a few days ago, we're going to 'do' the whole house tonight, carpets, upholstery, the cat, everything.... buuut I've been totally paranoid about having fleas in my hair and my head's a bit itchy but I'm not sure if I've got em or just imagining it? Because I haven't SEEN any in my dreads, but then I can't see the top of my head anyway.... ARRGGGHHH! Please any suggestions for some sort of wash or smell or something I can smother my dreads in which will keep them away and/or kill any which might be there?
