Hey all, I was just looking through some of the memories and noticed that this post I made when I started my dreads had been added to them. I noticed that the subject it has been given is "take out the bands first!"
Well everyone who replied to my post said that it didn't really matter that I still had the bands in when I backcombed, so does this mean that I should or shouldn't have taken them out? I'm guessing that it doesn't REALLY matter, as my dreads are doing okay, but I'm just curious to know.

Sorry for the annoying text-only, I was just confused :)

Hey everyone! I just joined after lurking for awhile, because I finally have something to post about: my three-day-old dreads! My boyfriend and I spent all day Sunday sectioning and backcombing. I'm already in love.

I just re-dyed my dread-ends copper red...adn those came out well. But I wanted to have some blonde in there, too. So I bought the same brand dye (Loreal Excellence HiColor dye for dark hair) in blonde....adn it didnt work!@!! SO I'm going to go buy some bleach. I will hve this done. Soon. PIcs up asap.

i've had my dreads for six days. the sideshow bob effect has died down, which is a shame because i was starting to get used to it. my hair doesn't look very dready, it just looks big and unbrushed, and the ends aren't dready, but i just touch my hair to reassure myself they are there, and read the memories and back entries of this community.

today i took a shower for the first time since getting my dreads (i had been taking baths, but an ice cold bath does not compare to an ice cold shower), and it went really well. i wrapped my hair up in a towel, adjusted the showerhead so it was as close to the wall as it would go, made sure the water was frigid (it's so hot here i think i'm melting), stripped and hopped in. it felt so good! i barely got my hair wet at all - when i put my face into the water the roots of my hair got a little damp, and that's it.

and that's my amazing shower experience.

Well, I was supposed to get dreads on the 9th, but I chickened out, so maybe I'm just looking for some here, but, I think I'm going to go through with it. This is me:

and well, I'm wondering what to do for bangs. 'Cause I definitely want them, I'm just wondering what you guys think would look good.

I really like these dreads: Image and video hosting by TinyPic I think I'm gonna try to go for ones that look like that. Somehow.

My friend Ahna (some of you may know her as thecatdoesdrugs) gave me dreads.

I'm going to have her dread my bangs tomorrow too. I wasn't sure if I wanted them done, but now I know I really do.
She also made me do two tiny ones myself, which was an awesome idea!

Yesterday I was over at her house and we were talking about how I wanted her to dread my hair.. in a month. She asked if she could do just one, and I said of course. As you can see it didn't end there. I've had them for less than 24 hours and I'm already completely and totally in love. I can't remember the last time I've been this excited about something!

I'm ordering some dread wax to kill the fluffies, and I'll be spending a lot of time at the ocean when they harden up a wee bit.
Ahna's got me covered as far as maintenence goes.

Do any of you know where I could get a good tam? Preferably various shades of green. I don't want to spend $30 at knottyboy.com. If all else fails a good crochet/knitting pattern would be appreciated.
