Hi everyone. I used to post here last summmer - fall. I had somewhat not that great dreads, and i put extensions on them, and ended up cutting them. Now my hair has grown out some and it's about four inches long. I'm tired of not having dreads, so I'm about to go start them right now. I've been without a computer since early last month, b/c I moved out of my parents' house, but now my friend brought his computer here and someone in our aparentment building gets wireless internet ;) It makes me happy to see the community as it was before. Hopefully I will look alright with my baby dreads and I'll have some pics soon. If anyone has advice on starting dreads with backcombing and rip and twist in short hair, i could probably use some help. :)

also I have a question for anyone who makes dread FIMO Dough beads. Do you have any tips? I just bought a lot of fimo clay, and i've experimented a bit, and did some researchm, but I can;t seem to figure out how to make beads with holes big enough. So far, the best i;ve done is molding a bead around a knitting needle and baking it like that. Any tips would be welcomed (there is saddly nothing in the memories about it)

much love,

I went to marleyfest yesterday in miami, florida and I can't even begin to tell you how many dread heads I kept seeing! Beauty everywhere! Here is just one picture, I will post a couple more later... Just wanted to share. :)

This is a family that I see every year, a mother, father and son. They are so sweet. I ended up dancing with her and her son later, haha!

Shampoo question

Can anyone living in England recommend a good shampoo to use to wash dreads? I am planning on starting mine next week & want to be prepared.

I looked through the memories & it mentioned Dr. Bronner's, but I'm not sure if they sell it here (I've only been here for a few months). So if anyone could recommend anything I could find at either Superdrug or Boots, I would appreciate it :)
