update-PICS [27 Sep 2005|12:52am]
[ mood | accomplished ]

so, I messed with my photo hosting site a bit, rearranged, and such.

here's the link for my dreaddie photo album, with new pics of my fiance's 2+ year-old dreads in various 'dos. oh, the possibilities! my friend's pics (I did his less-than-a-year-old dreads) are there too, but my baby bro's 1+ year-old dread pics are not up yet-gotta get current and old ones!

Dread or no? [27 Sep 2005|02:14am]
I am having a difficult time deciding if dread would look good with my hair being the way it is now. But I am dying to have dreads and I tend to be impatient. Ugg.

So tell me what you thinkCollapse )

Thanks for any help you give.

so i know this gets covered a lot, but i need some hair washing advice for some super-dense dreads.

i have a lot of trouble rinsing dr.bronner's out of my hair, and i find that i'm still rinsing some out whenever i get my hair wet under a hot shower. that or something else is really dark green and slimy and squeezing out. my attempts to get it all out have actually gone so far as to give me blisters. and my hair smells worse than it ought to when it gets wet.

In three days it will be two months since I've had my dreads... So I thought I'd share some pictures on how it's going.

Knock, knock...Collapse )

Hello again :)
I have two questions for you lot. How many times should one wash the dreads? I wash them once a month now, is that too much maybe?
And how can I best get rid of those hooks on my dreads? They are really starting to annoy me.

thanx in advance!


+2 picsCollapse )

i was just introduced to the rip and twist method, which is working wonders for me. my dreads are pretty thin (i have ~73? at last count) so as a result the roots were dreaded fine but the undreaded ends were pretty long. rip and twist totally added inches of dreaded hair to my head so now my ends are only 1-2 inches. awesomeeee.
combining the two methods (first backcombing your roots and then doing rip/twist to dread the bottoms) has worked out great for me. it's also easier because there's no use for a comb- you just tease the hair then pull it in two directions, hence, ripping and making a knot.
just as a heads up, this is a really awesome method and i thought i'd share since i hadn't heard much about it until last weekend.
anyone else use it on their hair &can tell me what to expect in the future? differences in results attained from backcombed/ripped and twisted hair?
thanks. :)
