hey guys, my name is jerica and i'm desperate to start dreading! i had dreads for 3 months last year, but ended up taking them out because they were far too thin once the initial poofiness went down and because they were constantly flat against the back of my head from being slept on. is there anything i can do this time around to prevent the flatness? and if this flatness is not preventable, what can i do to fix it in the morning? i tried palm rolling, but didn't have much results. also, one more thing! there a couple of dreadheads i see occasionally in the downtown area and one of them told me how his dreads were hard and that meant they were healthy, but they sure didn't feel so good to me. are they supposed to get this hard once they mature?

I've missed brushing my hair so I thought it would be a good idea to comb out most of my dreads and leave about 5 or 6 of my favorites scattered throughout my head. It's taking much longer than I expected, mostly because I've been incredibly lazy about it.

More importantly, I've forgotten how much of a pain it is to have to wash your hair every day or even every other day. And even more importantly, brushing hair has to be the most overrated thing ever. It seemed like a good idea, but always having to do it because my hair just wants to go back to how it was it seems....ug. And those bumps you get in your hair when you put it up in a ponytail? Wow I don't like those.

Needless to say I'm considering stopping where I am right now and letting it dread back up. I'm kind of torn over to keep going and leave the few mixed in because I'd like how that would look for a change, though.

very first dread pics

sticksta's post has brought out quite a few of us who seem to have magically started our first dread in the exact same spot... on the head, of course, not say, on the library steps in Cincinnati though that may have been way cooler.

So I want to see pictures of everyone's very first dread. Preferably that first "weeee I have a DREAD!" pic, but if such a picture does not exist then take a picture of it now and tell me its little life story :)
