So, in my last post yall asked about my spoken word in my last post, here's a link:


The poem I talk about on there is about dreads, more specifically about knots we choose to tie in our lives. There on topic!

Last night I went over to my friend Caitlin's house (liesinvain5) to dread her hair. I used backcombing and rip and twist. It worked very well. Her hair dreaded really nicely. She has 52, I think. Anyway, here are the Collapse ). I think she's pretty happy with them, which is good.

Hello all! What a lovely community to have found... I'm not currently dreaded nor have I ever been but dreads are definitely something I would like in my near future. Anyhow, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm 20 years old. I'm a massage therapy student and absolutely loving it. After I graduate I'd like to go back to school to be my N.D., that's Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. I work for a dog daycare in my area which is also pretty great. Some dogs have better personalities then some dogs I know.

Anyhow, I should scaddadle. I'm sitting in the library and I believe that frown upon this sort of posting.

Toodles :)

My love/hate relationship

God I hate my dreads today.

I know its just one of those days but argh! Just recently they have all sprouted loops and twists and bumpy bits and I look like Worzel Gummidge. *cries* They are nearly five months old and I am aware that this is probably just a phase but I intend to vent anyway.

I have notice that you old-timers out there (one year old or older) don't seem to have any loops, do they eventually just get absorbed back into the dreads? Or is there some secret magical way to tidy them up? I haven't seen any mention in the memories...

So, yeah.. I tried the wrap thing...and I couldn't get it to stay in. I tied the knot to tight at the top that I had to cut the thread out. I ended up cutting some of my hair off. It was just the loose hairs, but now I have all these super short hairs in the front. I don't like it. I'm really upset at myself.

Also.. I ended up cutting the tip off because I just didn't like the way it looked.. and I think I found mold in my dread. That or it's just some fuzzies on the inside. It doesn't smell at all, but I dunno. I'm just mad and needed to vent. blah

I took some pictures to show you what it looks like. It doesn't look bad.. I just had a hissy fit :)
