So we're meeting at the Park street Station, and around 4ish? right?
Now re-checking all the driving times and whatnot, i may
or may not be late. It depends on the border crossing for me (I'm expecting to be stopped for a while. :P ), and if i get lost picking up ArielHP in ellsworth.
BUT, i now have a cell phone. and although i'm not going to put the number up here, if you e-mail me i'll give it to you. It's a canadian number, so it'll be long distance but since this is my first month i get free calls i think. *shrug*
Hope to see you all in approx 32 hours!
* I'm working at a haunted house starting friday and my spot happens to be in a swamp. The owners have encouraged me to go under the water..and i want to in order to be effective in my spot, but my dreads are only about 2 weeks old and my only dreaded friend is telling me that getting them wet nightly is going to make them loose and...smelly. I mean the water is treated and clean, but I'm nervous.
*Rubberbanding. I checked the archives and there's not much about this, and I've been told that i should band the roots and tips which to me sounds really uncomfortable. At this time my hair has nothing in it but knots and really concerned about sticking anything else in em.
I'm sure these types of questions have been asked and if you look at this and roll yer pretty eyes, I appologize for being redundant.
Is anyone else having a problem seeing pictures that people have posted using photobucket.com? I can see pictures posted by some other website, but not any by photobucket, even when I cut and paste the link. Very strange...
is it normal to be losing hair? whenever i play w/ my dreadies i get little flakes of hair. i know you lose x amount of hair each day, but these pieces look like they're breaking off. it's a lot like times when i bleached my hair too long in one sitting, but i've only bleached my hair once since getting my dreads (i got the dreads mid-august and bleached them early sept) and it was only 20vol for 20 minutes.
the other night i braided some of my tinier dreads together, backcombed the ends and lightly waxed them. the result looks really fab in my opinion, but will this result in any problems further on? i realized that they will not grow out braided, and that it is arguable wether what i'll have could be classified as a 'dread', but what are my chances of screwing up my dreads big time by having done this?
thank you for your time!
so... does anyone want half a lishy dread?
i have this really crappy one in the back that is knotted beautifully for the top six inches, & the bottom is just lousy. all floppy & loose. so i'm chopping it in half & attaching a dreadlock i made from the hair of one of my best friends (& he's abnormally excited about my doing this).
so half of my worst dread is up for trade. if anyone's interested, make your offers! ;D
I've been using a method to tighten my tips - holding the end of the dread in between my index and middle fingers, and rubbing with my thumb to make knots. But now all the hair in my tips is brittle and breaking off. Has this happened to anyone? What's the best way to get my tips healthy again?
I'm hoping that this is not due to a nutritional deficiency, because I've just started off as a vegetarian.
People talk of using liquid like stuff to start off dreads (like perfessionaly salon done ish). This may be stupid to ask, but I have 40 v. develouper. I am very aware of how this can damage your hair beyond belief, but I'm thinking if I'm very careful and very quick, that I can damage my guy friends hair enough to dread it? His hair is sooooo healthy it's not even funny. Even though he doesnt use conditioner and has been using my dread shampoo. So any feed back would be awesome, and I'll share pictures when they are done. Thanks!
