attn: natural dreadies!

i would love it if any of you that have natural dreads/non-combed ones
could post some pictures here for me [in the comments] i really want
to see more of some that have progressed over time. i'd like to get a feel
for what my hair would look like if i just went the natural route.

thank you very much ;]

Frustration takes hold... [29 Apr 2006|01:22pm]
So my dreads are coming up on a month old now... I waited three weeks to wash them for the first time, and just washed them again today for the second time. I just get pissed cause a few have split. I guess being a recovering addict (just hit 90 days, woo woo!) I am kind of in the habit of trying to control things. I just had my third dread that split into two. That just gets under my skin for some reason. I tried rolling em together some but in the long run I have realized that I just need to leave 'em the heck alone. I palm roll 'em every morning with the accelerator I got from dreadheadhq.com and I think I am gonna try and wait a couple weeks before washing them again. So far, washing them (in any fashion, whether my scalp or whatever) has only seemed to cause problems.

So here's what they looked like a week ago... will post again when they are actually a month old.

P.S.  The new Tool album is great, buy it!

And yes, I know my tragus is pissed... it's been giving me shit and wont get better so I am getting the problem tissue cut off.

Okay I'm dyeing my hair today, but I have a question.
It's a teensy bit oily so should I wash it first or what?

I CUT OFF MY DREADS YESTERDAY!! [29 Apr 2006|03:07pm]
[ mood | AHHHH ]

i cant believe i actually did. and three days short of their six month birthday. it was terrifying. i want it to be longer on the sides. i want to look.. softer. it'll grow. kaeley is occasionally stupid. she kinda went nutz and was just chopping all over the place. i yelled at her. and then she cut my finger with the scissors and then we laughed hysterically and she jumped on my back. and i accidently touched holly's used tampon applicator and kaeley and i nearly peed our pants. and her dog, frida, has an obsession with my toes.

(ill post the photos of the process when she emails them to me)Collapse )

Ok dreads are a week old now, want to wash them for the first time...i've looked through the memories and i just want to know "how" to actually wash the dreads...im going to use dish soap and i know to rinse them very very well and dry really thoroughly. I just need to know...do i wet them, then rub soap into each dread and lather it up? thankies x
