sooooo...I am planning on doing this body-art-thing. it involves rolling around in paint on a large sheet/canvas/something...my one worry is paint in dreads. For those of you who have knowledge with paints and stuff...what kind of paint would you suggest?
or perhaps i could just try and avoid getting paint in my hair...hmmmm...
I don't think there's anything like this in the memories, but I'm not positive.
I am curious about how different treatment and starting methods make dreads look. Would everyone (who is willing to oblige me) post a comment with a photo (or two or three), of their dreads, how long they've had them (and/or what they've looked like at different stages), what they do for maintainence (the kind of shampoo you use, whether you've been using wax or not, tell me about those two dreads you combined), and how you started them?
some people think that it's disgusting that we dreadheads carry around all of our fallen hairs with us in our locks. but i'm disgusted by having to deal with all the hairs that come out of my brushable forelocks & bangs. all stuck around my fingers in the shower, caught in my toes on carpet, showing up bright red on my tile floors. i hate shedding. NOT shedding is SO much more appealing to me.
i'm just starting dreads for the 2nd time in my life - the first time my hair was bleached + they seemed to lock up faster?! i'm not sure if this had anything to do with my hair being more damaged, as opposed to being all natural with no dyes/bleachedness like my hair is currently?? also, i'm currently at a job where i'm required to wear a hat + i read somewhere that wearing a hat can hinder dreads locking up?? does anybody know if there is any truth behind this?! and if so, any suggestions on what i could do to help my dreads while wearing the aforementioned hat?!
also, the memories section is wonderful on this community!! i've read through a great deal of it + it's super helpful, but i just have to ask if anyone has anymore suggestions regarding dandruff?! i already had a dry scalp before re-dreading my hair, but now it is outta control - HELP?!
