Dreadies Take #2

I've been lurking for a long time and now I have some half-decent pictures I thought I'd share (beware...packed full of pictures!). They're only 4ish months old.

might even dye them all one colour one day.

on a side note, i dreamt that libee was in The Libertine last night. It didn't occur to me until I posted this that that's a bit weird.

So I had this dream last night that I cut all my dreads off.
It was really weird and very vivid. I actually woke up to make sure they were still there.

It's the first time I've had a dream like that before...anyone else ever have dreams like this?

Hello there everyone...
So my hair has been dreading for.... 5 months? Most of them are well on their way, though there are a few buggers who don't want to join in on the matted fun. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else's locks are as reluctant to knot in the middle as mine are. The roots are doing fabulous and the ends are doing great, but some of the middles just don't want to dread. Any advice?
Also, I don't have too much loose hair at the base of each dread, but there are a lot of fly-aways off each dread - a lot of loose hair that hasn't been sucked into any dread. My hair was a lot of lengths before I dreaded up so I think that may be a part of the problem. Does that make sense? Any suggestions on to how to persuade them to join in?
No wax for me.
Thanks a lot - I appreciate the help and I'll post photos around 6 months or so.

Hey. I think it's fair to say I have an obsession with dreadlocks. I adore them. But hey, who doesn't? I've been watching this community for ages, but now I've finally got round to actually posting something. Yay for me.
Anywho, I've wanted dreads since I was about 10, but I've always had my hair really short and I've only just got the patience to grow it. I just thought I'd post a picture of my hair as it is and see if there are any people who started off their locks when their hair was around the same length as mine. I know everyone's hair locks differently and that no-one's looks the same, but I'd love to have at least an idea of what it would look like if I started some now. I was thinking of waiting a few months before I start to get a little more length, but I start uni in September and would really like to start them before then.

i know there are a few of you out there who don't have a full, dreaded head. how did you go about getting those few locks without the rest of your hair trying to join it's buddies?
