Getting locks [02 Jun 2006|09:05am]
Hey, I'm a new member of this community, and I joined because I'm planning on getting locks as soon as possible. I love the way dreads look and I'm also going to be backpacking all summer pretty much, and this seemed a good alternative to cutting all my hair off. I've read all the memories and I've figured out that I'm probably going to backcomb with no wax (I read more bad things about wax than good things), but I'm still not entirely sure, and I don't think I can do it by myself, considering I can't even braid my hair. I live in Baltimore, and I was wondering if anyone knows of a place/person that could do it, or just has general advice if I make one of my friends do it. Also, if anyone knows of a good residue free shampoo, that would be really helpful.

Oh, and here's a picture of my hair...you can mostly see it. It's quite curly and reaches about three or four inches below my shoulders.

dread related [02 Jun 2006|10:57am]
So last night while at work. I was replenishing the salsa lids and cups (I work at a mexican reseteraunt) when this little girl, who couldn't be more than 7 years old asked me to hand her a lid. I looked down to see that she had long flowing tangled blonde hair with at least 5 chunky dreads! It was so adorable! I tried to find her mom to tell her how cool that I thought it was but it was busy and I had to...well, work.
In other news I've given myself 3 or 4 little bitty dreadies over the last couple days and I'm patiently awaiting my hair to grow back out enough for me to start a new, full set. 
I hate waiting for my hair to grow out but you all give me strength and hope. :-)
I hope everyone has a lovely day!

Arse....... [02 Jun 2006|12:54pm]
[ mood | sad ]

Well, the mystery of the mystery monkey illness has been solved, and I start having chemo in about a week or so....... which means of course that in all likelihood all my hair will be falling out. Rather than wait for it to fall out (which would be really fucking disturbing frankly), I've decided to make something popsitive out of the whole mess and will be shaving my dreads off in aid of the Lymphoma Association a week on saturday. If anyone fancies sponsoring me, they may do so here.

I'm going to hold onto most of the dreads (I may start a new set once the treatment's finished and may sew some of the old ones in!), but I will be giving away about 5 or 6 if anyone would like one. lishd, I figured you'd want one, so I'll set one of the good ones aside for you, if anyone would like one of the remaining ones, please let me know and I'll sort something out.

It's gonna break my heart to cut my babies off, but I'll post pictures of the big event here next weekend.

You are wondering what the hell I am doing here.... Well, I guess you are able to guess ;)

I am starting again! With dreads, I mean. Yes, I made a good decision taking them out, but I miss having dreads.

I want to go natural, but I just need some support, I guess. I hate to look messy (which will change, I bet) and I would love to have small dreads. I guess I am scared that my hair will form one huge bever tail in like one night and that I cannot do anything about it after then. Complete bull, because it's impossible. But will ripping "them" apart be very bad for the forming of knots? I guess so :s

Thanks lovely's! I am back!! Yeah!
