just thinking: has anyone ever started dreads with a little backcombing at the roots, perhaps an inch just so each lock would stay separate, but then left the rest of each dread-to-be to do as it pleased? i was wondering last night if that could be the best of both worlds there, or if it'd just end up lousy.
& does anyone have some loose hair to try it on? :D
i have some dreadheadhq shampoo that i no longer need/want. theres about 3/4ths left so you can have it for 6.00 (normally 10 a bottle). shipping will can be determinded depending on where you live. and i guess the first reply gets it...
so i've had my dreads for 2-3 months. i have about 60 or so....and i'm having a lot of problems with them.
it seems that my curly hair is actually fighting my dreads. my hair is thick and curly and naturally locks up without combing but it also remains curly....if that makes sense...the dreads aren't straight is what i mean. when they were actually dreading, also, my hair was very BIG as it is naturally. now it is also very blah..lately, the dreads have been unlocking and getting even curlier...but also blah. [my hair is not insanely curly, just curly] i have left the ends undreaded if that affects anything. the hair that is coming in also isn't locking. i've spent a lot of time on them but maybe not enough? any ideas or suggestions? maybe i need to wash my hair? it's been three months. not that i washed my hair very often anyways...but just wondering.
this is only semi dread related sorry: but i figured i would reach out to some family so i think its okay to post. so on a spur of the moment idea. i bought a plane ticket to ontario canada. BUT! without much planning at all. so i was wondering if maybe anyof you lovely canadians knew were a hostil or two would be or if maybe someone wanted to hang out. i'll be there on the 20-28th :O im sooo stoked! i love canadians heheh.
but yeah i love you guys and ithought who better to ask for some help along the way than the ones who would understand irrational thinking.:)
dread love you guys
i guess to make this a little more dread related i'll mention this. i moved into a new apt. and a new roomie. and shes a dready too!!! opa!!
