Hola! How is everyone this fine evening? So I have a few questions and I was wondering if ya'll could enlighten me. I've been wanting to dread for quite sometime now. I keep hearing that they stink to high heaven and I'm kind of opposed to clearing a room. Is there anyway to keep the smell to a minimum? Also is there anyone in the NJ area that might want to help dread my hair in exchange for a professional massage?
if you have dreads or you wanna get 'em, check out this site.
they have some great stuff to get started as some nice accessories. if you buy something, enter this email when you check out, and you'll get a dollar off, plus some mojo-peppa, which is awesome. firstname.lastname@example.org
(this is the post i left in my journal, some of it anyway, i took some bits out, just because)
i didn't sleep well AT ALL that night, my head hurt and i felt unnatural. i felt naked and stupid. i felt like the mighty lion without its glorious mane. i felt like my most beloved appendage had been viciously cut off. but, it was ok. i was too tied up into that tangled mess. it was TIME.
bah. i dont care what they think, i dont. its awful to have a hangup THIS bad, on just my hair. one reason for the cutting. another is because ... and i had this conversation with a lady i work with when she asked
what on EARTH possessed you to do that? it was your identity!
EXACTLY. i'll tell you ... i was britton, the silly girl with the dreadlocks. when the idea popped into my head to cut them i kept thinking, what will they think of me then? what about my status?
my identity is NOT in my hair. therefor, it will be cut. i have to shed. everyone does. too many emotions tied up into those silly locks. they were my babies! my first set of dreads. i loved them, but it was time for them to go. i miss them! and i HATE regular hair now that i have it again ... i will be eventually dreading up again, as soon as it is long enough.
i cut the ones on the back of my neck shorter than the ones on top, i left about 3 inches of dreaded hair to comb out. comb out time took 3 hours, lots of conditioner and loads of pain.
all i wanted was a pair of hands to work their magic on the mess i like to call my head :/
i have long bits of everything hanging just about everywhere. what d'you suggest? cut it off, wait for it to magically get sucked in by the locks or tuck it all in with le needle/crochetpen-hook-whatever-it's-called-in-english-thing?
