On Having New Dreadlocks and Little to No Patience - a lament

oh my god i hate my hair
i feel like a grizzly bear
my hair's a mess and i am fat
my dreads are matted, loose and fat
my ends are loose, my tips are loose
my roots are loose and i want juice
they do not look like proper dreads
the frizzies live atop my head
the only thing that comforts me
are get_up_dread_up's memories
i've had my dreadlocks for eight weeks
oh how i wish they looked complete!
me in the corner

Dread Update

I often think about updating, but don't actually get around to actually doing it, but now I finally have. I read the community most every day and I love seeing all of your beautiful dreadlocks. I've been working in a natural foods store this summer, and I've seen more dreaded folks on a daily basis than ever before.

Anyways, here is a timeline of sorts. My dreads will be 2yrs and 6months on the 28th.

    love equals death, the outsiders


Is anyone in/around Kansas City who could start dreadlocks? I've been haunting this community forever and am trying to decide if I want to do them now or wait until winter break.
Not that Kansas City is running rampant with dreadheads, though. Sadly.

...However, come September 1st I will be in northampton, MA, in which it may be easier to find someone. Anyone?


i just did my dreads last night. my sister helped with the back and i did the rest. my dad woke up this morning and told me i looked ridiculous. i've been sick lately and feeling really blah, so it didn't make me feel any hotter. i like them, i'm just a bit overwhelmed by them at the moment. need a few weeks to get used to them i think.
