Odd. . . [20 Sep 2006|12:33am]
Here's what might be strange - then again, it might be a dumb question.

Everyone seems to have problems locking their tips. I put my dreads in a week ago, and I have no problem with my tips - they've got lovely knots building up. But only the tips. There's a patch of straight hair between the main locked part of the dread, and the knotty tip. Should I rip the knots up towards the dreaded part, or let 'em be, or comb the ends out? I'm worried the knotty tips will stop the undreaded part locking up. If that makes sense.

My dreads: RIP 20 september 2006 [20 Sep 2006|12:43am]
The pressure on my neck? Gone. The loose hairs? Gone. The palm rubbing over and over again? Gone.

My 3 years old (and two months) super long dreads? Cut!

I feel sad and free at the same time.

Pictures coming soon.

Sell dreads for $$$ [20 Sep 2006|04:09pm]

Like I wrote last night, I just cut my dreads. I heard that you can sell your dreads for a good amount of cash. I tried to find any information on the net but failed. Should I just go knocking around every shops of Montréal or is there very specific shops that I can ship them to?


(My English hurts...)

back again [20 Sep 2006|05:18pm]
I took better pictures of my now four day old baby dreads. I have alot more confidence in this set. Just in case no one remembers, I was formerly under the account elfishdew and made a post about my then backcombed two month old set.
It was done in record time as well. Two ladies did them for me, and it only took two and a half hours. It's crazy nuts.
here's the link, I don't know how to link properly, so you can copy and paste if interested:

And here are the promised better pictures:

really wouldn't be complete unless i had a silly face.
Also, is aloe vera gel alright to groom my new dreads, or detrimental?

I've had dreads for one year and five months. [20 Sep 2006|05:54pm]
Story Time!

I was on a small voyage, to the United States, earlier this month. When I was there;

- I was asked if my hair was melted together.
- I was also asked if I had gotten my hair steamed together.
- I was also asked how many irons it took to get my hair that dead.
(I was also asked on a date, by a very cute boy, but that's unrelated.)

Hmm! It got me thinking. People like this; do you think, that they've just NEVER seen dreads before, or just never bothered asking, or just simply, ask everytime they see someone with dreads?
Just because, there are quite the number of us dreaded folk about these days, and I'm sure we all get funny questions, and I was just thinking, like, the uneducated, should have to run out at least some day? Maybe. Hopefully?

Pictures Time!

There is a man with no shirt on, under here.

Thank You all.
Pleased to meet you.
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah.

dreads. [20 Sep 2006|06:54pm]

this is my second set; they're two months old and made with the rip and twist method....the first set was made with backcombing. I like this method (rip and twist) better, 'cause A lot of dreads in the back of my head, at the nape of my neck, have started getting really curly and twisty, like my hair is when it wasn't dreaded, which I think is awesome. Curly-wavey-twisty dreads are bitchin'!

And just so you know....you all have got to be the most gorgeous bunch of people on the face of the planet.

WOW [20 Sep 2006|09:31pm]
my dreads really needed work, lots of loose hairs and my ends were all stringy, not at all good for swinging around (which i can't even do yet, because my hair is about 5 inches long in dreads), so i thought, "well, i may as see what all the hype is all about with regards to felting needles," even though my dreads were made from my sweat and tears, they just weren't locking up the way i wanted them to, so i decided to forfeit hands-only dreads. and boy am i glad i did.

felting needles seem to be the gateway to perfect dreads, all you do is jab the dread where it needs locking, and suddenly your sad looking mat turns into a beautiful rounded end, perfectly cylindrical dread.

felting needles are really inexpensive too.
i am very favorably impressed!
