I ripped out all my "permanent" extensions. I seem to really try to defy the word permanent a lot. Now my hair looks like this!

Alright, so I'm sure I already know the answers to this question, but I needed some help.

My dreads were growing natural for about 5 months, and then I decided around the 5.5 month period to start backcombing. They plumped up and everything was peachy. Then I decided to be an idiot and turn to wax. Why? I don't know.

I realize that dreads take alot of time to form and that i should be patient, and believe me, I am being patient.
I washed them the other night [with the knotty boy bar] and they were the best they've ever been. But that night I slept on them when they were still just a bit damp. I should also mention I live in Toronto, and the smog and wet snow and everything we've been getting lately might not be helping, but my hair has gone EXTREMELY limp all of a sudden.

I figure it's a mixture of the wax residue plus the smog plus the smog and dirt in the wet snow, but is there any way I can fix this?

They don't look too appealing whatsoever. They seem to be getting greasier as the days go on, but since I washed them the other night and they're still new, I fear washing them again in case they fall apart. [Which they tend to do alot lately.]

And so it's not a text-only post:

how many times a day do you spray the lemon juice in your hair, usually?

thanks a bunch!

they seem to be forming well! [02 Feb 2006|03:50pm]
does leaving the rubberbands on (the bottom of the dread ONLY) help lock the tips a little better? I don't want rounded tips. It seems my tips are splitting apart a bit. Any advice?

Hey :)
Just wondering if anyone here lived in the London area (possibly around Richmond) and dreads hair.
I've tried on my own without much success, and just need some help getting them started.

I'm also slightly broke, so I wouldn't be able to pay much. Or I could pay you in vegetable crackers & Harry Potter trading cards.

R.I.P. dear dreadlocks. I loved them more than I could tell you about but it was time for a change. I will post the full versions with pictures in the near future.

I miss me dreadies.  I dunno why I ever gave up on them.  This time Im COMMITING!!  DUN DUN DUN!  My hair is pretty short right now.  MAYBE and inch long.  Possibly longer in some places.  My hair is really straight and fine and it dreads up with alot of work.  But Im thinking Ima let it grow out about two more inches then perm it.  My hair takes to perms really well Ive had them when I was younger and my hair never fries.  So...yeah.  I have a flea comb around here somewhere and some dread soap from dreadhead and some dreadhead wax.  Ill be posting the process. 


This is my head now.Collapse )
