I took this picture this morning, most of my dreads weren't even 24 hours old at the time. I still have lots of waxin' and twisting to do, and someone still needs to stomp down the loose hairs at the end, but lookin' at the fact that they're new I really can't complain (can I?)

Btw, ignore the bitter look on my face.

Dreading without wax.

I am planning on dreading my hair this weekend after I finish moving (having just left the job that wouldn't allow me to do so). I plan on doing it following the directions at Knotty Boy, sans hair wax.

For those that dreaded their own hair (with or without help), how did you do it without wax? Any tips? My hair is extremely thick and shoulder-length, and was hoping that maybe I could get some advice on dreading it sans wax.

Thought I'd share a little story.

I once had a man in a wheelchair come into my work and make a comment about my hair. He was rather rude about it, as the first thing he said to me was asking if I had stuck my finger in a light socket. He also said when he was in Toronto he saw a lot of "dirty street kids" who had my "kind of hair." He also asked if I showered, and of course, I said I did, as it was still just hair like his, but just knotted up.

I was polite to him, however I found it interesting that a man who probably had to deal with a lot of rude comments in his life would so easily dish them out.
