reason #127946124124 to have dreads:

When you're walking down some wet stairs, and your feet fly out from underneath you and you smash onto the stairs and slide down the remaining 5 into a gravel parking lot, it'll be your wad of dreads that keep you from cracking your head open.

so everyday im finding that im having to brush out little forming dreads from my hair. im so tempted to just stop brushing my hair and take the plunge. im still having my continuous doubts about having dreads, but then i see so many beautiful people with dreads (i just went to berkeley and telegraph street), and it makes me want them so badly. the problem is i want my dreads to be some what neat, so i thought that back combing would be a better way to go than just letting them go wild, but i do not think anyone would like to be back combing my hair (it's pretty long). so what do you guys think? and do you have any advice on dreading the natural way? how many times should i wash my hair, and with what soap? how long do you think it will take for all of them to dread? thanks.

now my dread question....
I had a few hairs that just missed the dread bus and forgot to get on...lol
anyhow....i tried sewing them into the dread, and alot of them just fell out (i did palmroll a few times)
when i sew, do i crisscross through the dread?
i just wrapped the loose hair with thread and pulled it through.

*shrug*

yay

hey guess what?




I start working at RadioShack on Monday!
I FINALLY HAVE A FREAKING JOB. :D


I'm a bit nervous that it's commission-based (although with some sort of hourly fee as well), as I have never had a job like that before... :/
But I'm probably worrying myself over nothing... as per usual...

Anyway. Just wanted to share.
Because this is OH-SO GOOD news for me.
:D


Here, see some dreads:

hey do you guys leave beads/rings/etc in your hair when you wash it?
because i have a number of rings in my hair, and i've just been taking them out whenever i wash them, but it's a huge pain,
hmm..
i just didn't know if they'd leave like, marks and such in my hair if they got soapy/really wet
i don't know what they're made out of either.

and i've got a bunch of beads and other things too.

so what do you all think?

oh here's a picture of some of the rings... funny angle and they look bad in that light heh

Okay, so I couldn't resist. The bit in the red ring? That's a dread :D






Just the one. Maybe a few more later, I don't know. I'm thinking of having some kind of crazy dreaded/long/short/curly/straight/dyed/natural/shaved combo on my head all at the same time. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to make that happen yet...



PS Yes, my stupid webcam thing is broken beyond repair. Just try squinting!

hilarious

on the way home, top down on 95, i got the friendly-two-beeps & looked to my left. there were two people behind tinted glass that i couldn't make out at all except for the thumbs up they were both thrusting towards me. i grinned & sped off.

Why hello knotted community! I am planning on dreading my hair in the next 2 weeks or so...I have a few questions:

1. My hair is pretty thick, and my hair reaches to about the middle of my back...I know dreading it will take forever, but I kinda want an estimate on how many hours it will take...basically what I'm asking is how long did it take to dread your hair?

2. I'm not really up to buying a kit off-line, but I want to know if getting a kit will give me nice dreads or if it really doesn't matter.

3. A friend of mine has dreads, he said that when he first got them, he didn't wash them for a few weeks. When should the ideal time be for me to wash my hair?

4. Is it a neccesity to wax my hair? When, and basically how should I do it...if I need to?

Those are just a few questions I had. Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you...you have no idea how exited I am.

random compliments

went to queeraoke by myself last night and the second i walked in some chick said, i love your hair! and felt it up a little. the touching without asking didn't even faze me; she was sweet.

today my sister and i were at a stoplight when we heard shouting from a van approaching us in the passing lane. do you have dreadlocks? a shaggy teen asked. when i nodded he and the driver, mouths agape, droned, ohhhh, that's so coooool.

hee hee. it's fun.
