picatures....and New York anyone??

helllo dreadful friends. :) i'm an avid lurker in this community, i think i may have posted a total of ONE time! anyway...i had a question!

are there any dread-heads in or around the new york city area? i'm moving to manhattan on the 1st of october, and my dreads are in desperate need of help! my one and only qualified (and willing) friend has left me to go to vancouver. so i'm just trying to make some contacts in the area for once i'm settled in and able to pay someone a bit to help me out with my hairs!

plus, i know absolutely NO ONE in new york, so if i can meet anyone from there thru this, that's okay with me too. =)

now it's time for pseudo-time line!

A few quick questions.

I might be going to Centre Parcs next weekend with friends, we normally go swimming twice during the day. In the morning and evening. My dreadies are still babies, they can cope with getting wet but twice in a day? Will this damage them? Is there anything I can do to proect them, French plait them or something like that?

I checked out the memories about dandruff but just for reassurance, does tea tree oil really work on dry scalps? What have been your experiences?

How much salt do I need in a salt water wash/spray? Enough for it to taste like tears or really strong?

And just out of curiosity, what do you do with your dreads when it comes to sleeping? I've been plaiting them which seems to hold them in place fairly well.

Sorry about the questions. Thank you in advance.
Love xox


I love wearin my dreads up in a high ponytail!! but i dont like it when it starts pullin n stuff,,,ahhh. but usually its fine i think i just have to make sure the hair bobble is tight enough to hold it in place! the pink looks well vibrant in this pic, although weeks before that it was a right nightmare cos for some reason it kept makin the back of all my tshirts pink!!!! and usually it washes out fine. then i washed it out again for another hour and the shampoo foam was bright pink and the fuckin stuff wouldnt stop running! then i blow dryed it which i hadnt done cos the weather was so hot, and it was fine. god bless that blowdryer.

Yeah we're dancin to sean paul in my friend's kitchen cos we were rather drunk!! :)

my dreads are well pissing me off today. my front ones are thin and sometimes they look so shit. ive considered brushing them out but then my hair will just get even thinner i reckon and look even worse cos its right at the front of my head...ive combined two a while ago but the rest are all in crap places all divided unsymmetrically etc..ahhh what to do, how can i puff them out at the roots or anything?? actually maybe its just a 'bad hair day' :)
