i finally sat down and worked on my loose hairs. i made sure to get the hair from inbetewen my dreads and tuck it back in. even put some rubberbands loosely on couple roots to make sure the hair dosnt slip right back out.
the new mini dread now replaces the bald spot! you can still see little bit of the bladness at the bottom there =0 (
so it has been a fabulous journey of 1 year and 5 months with my dreadies i'm taking the next step and out they come i'm about 1/5th of the way getting them out i'll post before and after pics when i'm all done can anyone tell me some hints on how to loosen them up before brushing them out? i've soaked my hair in conditioner many times as well as leaving it in for a whole day anything to make it slightly less painful would be fabulous thanks a bunch guys and i plan on staying around if thats ok still a dreadhead at heart
Hey guys, I've been reading this communtiy for a long time now, and I finally started a livejournal just so i can post here. I love this community and I read it just about everyday. The pictures and the people are soooo beautiful ;D
Well, my dreads are basically a product of the method of neglect. I was thinking that they would start looking good... sometime. I just don't know what to think about my hair right now. There are still places in the very back that are not dreaded, just nappy hair... The ends are way curly. The dreads are quite skinny. Oh and I can't post pictures because my 3 year old daughter broke my digital camera about a week ago. If anyone else has had experiences like this just reply and let me know so I don't feel so alone. I think you'd really have to see it to understnad, however. I mean, part of my hair looks decent (like on top) and other parts look horrid (like the back underneath). Oh and I have a lot of loose hairs. I'm just going to leave it alone and let it do it's thing, though.
It's really amazing when you stop and think about it. The way we all have the ability to touch other people's lives. One glance, one word has the ability to make or break someone. I believe we are all connected to everything, other people, animals, nature.
I was thinking of putting a couple dread wraps in my hair using embroidory thread. I would simply have my dreaddy sister do it for me, but she's flying back out to California tonight, and unless I can convince her to do it for me tonight, I'll have to do it on my own, or tell somebody else how to do it.
But yea, can anybody provide a nice how-to, and perhaps some pictures to explain the dread wrap process?
