rubberbands...but!

so im wondering, aparently rubberbands are a no no, but what about when you're adding just a few dreads to a completely un-dreaded head of hair. would it be ok to use them in that case to temporarily keep it from growing out of control and ending up with a couple of beaver tails? or is it still a no no?

a new dreadhead is born

Hey everyone...My name's Sarala, and I live in that cold place above the States where it snows too much...I've been a member for a little while now, but I was shy of posting coz I didn't actually have dreads yet...Mostly I joined for inspiration to make the final push...and it finally happened. So thank you for inspiring me.

And now...

I'm soo happy I finally worked up the courage to do real dreads [I've been a synth dread user for a couple of years]. I've wanted them for years...since I was little[er], but I was afraid/couldn't coz of work, etc. There's always an excuse, eh?
I've gotten a couple of funny looks so far, but I could care less. I'm completely in love with them. It's my head anyway, no-one else has to like them so long as I do.

I have a sneaking suspicion that there are many cookie makers here.

Put your favorite cookie recipe here.. If only in the name of cookie science.

Here's mine:
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
1/4 tsp of cinnamon
lots of chocolate chips

Cook these morsels in an oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Eat.

What is YOUR favorite cookie recipe?

my first haircut

so ive had my dreads for 11 months now and i had these half-loose curly tips that i just couldnt get to dreads. they were dried out and some were little tufts of knots covered in little fuxxys that i couldnt get out no matter how much i washed them. so yesterday i decided to give myself a little hair cut. after 15 minutes in the bathroom, my dreads were about an inch shorter and just felt o much lighter. at work a co-worker/friend and i were talking about my hair and he said they looked alot healthyer.

idk. i just woke up and now im rambling. heres some pictures. i dont know if you can tell the difference in teh shots but i can feel it on my head.
