This might be irrelavent, but I just had a dream my dreads were really elastic-like. So I started pulling them out. It was a double dream too. I woke up crying :|

I also have a question about loose hairs. I have them like crazy. I've tried backcombing them in, crochet method... Hasn't seemed to work.

Thanks in advance ♥

we should put together something like this http://photobucket.com/albums/v480/hairfiles/ (a photo album of sorts) for people who are new to dreads (or are looking to dye/cut theirs) to see an array of pictures of dreadlocks all in one place
pictures can be organized based on length, or thickness of dreads, or age, or hair color or something.
i think it'd be fun. everyone else should tell me how they feel about it!

It's me again ^^
The little hopeless one who's combing out her 109 dreads
*nods*


ME and my best friends =) from the right : Hanne (Shrimp), Me in the Green top, Heidi who's all black, and Pia at the other end.

I took some pictures while combing, adn the orange one is sometime this night, It looks quite alright, but I've got LOTS to go in the back >_<

Chlorine?

I'm a newbie, my dreads were just done today and I'm already in love with them. I feel sort of like I have 27 small children on my head, and though I don't have pictures right now I'll definately share some soon.

In the meantime I have a question about chlorine. I swim three days a week, only for about half an hour at a time, but enough that my hair would get soaked. I checked the memories and found no entry about this, and I'm wondering if the chlorine will make them fall apart? It seems to me that it should be sort of like salt water and help them up, but I could be wrong. I'm also a little nervous about getting them wet so soon.

Advice?

Heyho... I checked the memories, but found nothing about this:

When would you say is the best time to palmroll dreads - when they're dry or straight after a shower?

Thank you! xx
