Hi everyone! I read almost every entry in the memories before posting this. :)
My name is Roxie, I'm 21, and am from the Houston area. I am so glad to have found this community! ^_^
I have wanted dreads for a long, long time and I think I'm finally ready to take the plunge. Well, in a couple months that is. :)
My hair is about shoulder length right now and I want to wait till it's a little bit longer before dreading. My birthday is in October, and I think that will be the perfect time to do it. I believe nothing is more beautiful than a woman with long dreads. Perfection.
My family and boyfriend are against it, but I know that they'll actually grow to love them, and if they don't that's their problem.( Collapse )
It's a couple months old, but my hair looks pretty much the same. I curled it that day, but I naturally have fine wavy hair. My boyfriend keeps telling me that my my hair is too fine for dreads, but I think he's just trying to get me to back out. (You'd think with him being a long haired man he'd be more open minded...)
Anyway, my question is about having fine hair. Will that really have a negative impact on the way my hair will dread? I'm looking to go the backcombing route, preferrably without wax, but I'm thinking I'll probably need to use a little.
Thanks in advance for your help and I cannot wait until I get to join the ranks with you beautiful dreadheads. ^_^
