Almost kinda a little bit

I got my first dreadlock today. I know I'm probably going to get yelled at because its wrapped in hemp, but I like it that way because the rest of my hair is undreaded as of right now, and I needed to keep it seperate. Plus: I enjoy being decorated.

Hey guys,

I'm looking for some help here, we go to a Halloween party every year and the costumes are always great. My partner is going to go as Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon (hell yes!), but I can't think of anything good for me. There don't seem to be many halloween types with dreads! Here's a picture of me, if it helps!

Hi there......

I'm new. I live in Vermont and have had my new baby dreads since Sunday. My mom put them in for me. I've been wanting these for the last 5 or 6 years and finally decided to go for it.

I have pictures and a write up in my blog here:

workplace hair styles?

started 6th form today (read: non-compulsary education) and wore my hair up. my year tutor agreed that i could keep my dreads as long as they were worn up.

the only problem is: my scalp was seriously hurting after half a day. for those of you who have to keep your dreads hidden at work or school, what's an easier method of hiding dreads that doesn't pull quite so much? especially as tomorrow i will have to start going through full days of this. =/

the only styles in the memories are to show off dreads.

oh and for giggles. because i was so pleased the school wasn't going to force me to chop.

I have a little question. No pictures yet, my digicam is broken :/.
My dreads are about 2,5 months now, and they seem to knot well.
I shower about 2-3 times a week, and I always shower in very, very hot water.
Is that bad or good for the babies? It's a really bad habit I can't seem to shake off,
and I dont want to damage them.
Also, do everyone here palmroll a lot to maintain their dreads? I dont do it at all,
and the few times I tried, my dreads didnt really like it.

new dreads!

so, i got them.
it took about 6 ish hours, because the person who did the first half didnt twist them well enough,
so my boyfriend had to dread a section of my head plus fix all the other dreads.
im not digging the way it sticks up, but i know it'll go away eventually.
