happy days in a lonely town

in my town, there are very few dreadheads. so imagine my excitement when i meet a girl tonight who has been through it all with hers and gives me my first bead!! i'm so proud of it, even though it is nothing special. i thought i'd share with you all because you are awesome like that!

also, i'll be moving to detroit in a few weeks and i'm sure to meet many more beautiful dreads, so that's really exciting for me.

Hi everyone. Ok, I'm sure this question has been asked....i think...but I cant find any answers any where.

Its about roots.

'm all about embrassing the locks and not going into a tizzy if they dont look perfect, but i will NOT have a beaver paddle. It's jsut not what i want, you know? I have been ripping the suckers apart for months, but its like I'll wake up the next morning and they are even worse. I was thinking that maybe i should combine them into a few bigger ones? i dont know...they are driving me nuts! Its like dreadlock caniablism back there.

What am i doing wrong? Or is this inevtiable? B/c i will NOT have a beaver paddle. I'm all for big fat locks or whatever, but the whole back of my head being one dread? I dont think so.

Thanks guys.

I've decided to dye my dreads red. But first, I have a question.

Before I dreaded my hair, my hair was dyed black, then bleached, and then dyed black again. This was over a period of about a year. I've come to the conclusion that it's better for me to use the color remover/stripper by L'Oreal instead of bleaching it, since I don't really need my hair to be blonde to get the red that I want - I only need the hair to be brown. My hair isn't severely damaged. It doesn't break off like straw. But before removing the color and dyeing my hair again, I'd like to use either hot oil or something like it, to repair it a bit.

So... Right now, at my house, I have the following:
- Hot-Oil deep hair repair for dry or damaged hair by Schwarzkopf Gliss Kur, which contains protein, and to my knowledge, does not contain vitamin E;
- and then I've got Hair repair hot-oil by Henna Plus, which contains vitamin E and provitamin B5, and has a pH of 4.5.

Which one should I use?

Schwarzkopf with protein
Henna with vitamin E, provitamin B5 and a pH of 4.5

Why did you choose that product?

Thank you!

super best friends!

This is a good picture of my dreads. :) And an unflattering one of Richard, hehehe.

This one is of Richard and I, and our friend Lara, who had several awesome, long, natural dreads. She recently combed them out (all except three, two of which she gave to Richard and I), and donated the rest. Anyway, this is a silly picture of the three of us, and her hair is short, heh.

Don't fuck with us.

Here's a update for you. You don't have to think everyone in get_up_dread_up is sexy. You don't have to agree with their politics. But insults and disrespect are NOT cool. I don't care how you mask it. No one is asking you to critique every poster. This is not a fucking rating community. Take that troll shit back to middle school.

Do I look fat in these, Lish?

I'm home! Exciting!
Matt and I had a really great time. We've been driving all day though and Im on my way to the gym but I wanted to post these few of my hair beforehand, only because Im so excited about them-

Lish went through and rounded up all the tips first. This is one side rounded vs. the unrounded tips on the other side.
