hey everyone. I'm planning to touch up my patchily-dyed hair with punky colors soon (I'm cheap and like it temporary), and I noticed on the container it says "conditioning hair dye". I used manic panic a while ago which turned out nicely but made some of my locks unravel a bit (this could be due to the fact that i left it on overnight). They're about 4 months old now and mostly pretty tight but I'm still kinda concerned. I've searched the memories and google and couldn't really find too much info. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences using it, good or bad? Thanks guys!

(ps. I hopefully should be posting pics soon. need a new cable for my digital camera.)

hi, i'm new to this community..
my boyfriend is wanting dreads, and i recently posted an entry about him to longhair, and they pointed me here.
but i'll post about the boy later, i have a question about myself now ;)

i have hair about down to my nipples. which isn't very long yet - i want it down to my elbows. i also want dreads though. so my questions are:

- i have fine hair. can i have dreads without looking like a total dumbass? -- does anyone here have fine hair with dreads that i can see how they look? i just don't want to look stupid..
- do the dreads grow? like if i got them over the summer, would they eventually grow to my desired lenghth?
- do any of you get discrminated against, in the work environment, for having them?
- any tips for my hair getting thicker beforehand?

i am seriously in need of a little change. i wear my hair in ponytails everyday!! like im talking for the last 6 years!!!!! haha
i told you i am in need of a change! :)

Gah, I can't think of any witty openers about how newly joined I am so...

I've got very fine hair that loves, loves to tangle up. Now, the thing that is confusing me would be that my hair seems to be forming tubes (dreads, whatever you would like to call them at this stage) after only three days of not brushing. Is this normal? Should I be praising some hair god? Or is this an interim phase and they will all come loose within a few more days?

I'm sorry for asking such a silly sounding question, but I found nothing on it in the memories. Thanks for the time. :)

[ mood | bored ]

About half of my dreads are 2 1/2 months old done by my friend ohsohumpy, and the rest are natural and about 10 months old, no closeups, but I have one picture taken last week on the Charles River in BostonCollapse )

How long to wait for dye? [05 Apr 2006|11:22pm]
Hey everyone. I was just wondering if there was a certain time span I should wait until I start dyeing my locks? I keep trying the memories, and some work, some do not. Out of the ones that would load, I did not find this. My locks are about two or two and a half months old now...if this has been answered please let me know!! Sorry in advance, folks! :)
