hello I am takin the day of today and thought i post a few pix!! my dreads are 8 mo. and will turn 9 on oct. 21 :D p.s sorry if pix are really big ... I resized them but photobucket is strange to me sometimes.
the dreads are gone. but only on hiatus. until i find a job, and someone who knows what theyre doing.
it took twenty minutes of conditioner, and three hours of combing. not to mention tons of hair falling out, but i now have a full head of non-dreaded hair. and im sad.
my mom said i had to take them out, but she changed her mind and said i could go to the salon and get them fixed up, but i know the salon has no idea what theyre doing when it comes to dreads, so i figured id just take a hiatus.
it would have been our one month dreadaversary this saturday. so sad. but
Just wondering if there's anyone in London or who has been through who knows a good place to get some maintenence? I've hit the three month mark and think they could use a bit of TLC (especially the stragglers at the back on the bottom).
Thanks for anything you know - the best I've found so far is a dodgy looking lady in Camden offering to crochet them (which set alarm bells ringing straight away) for £45 an hour!
Mine are coming up for 6 months, I just trimmed them today, the straggly bits at the end were driving me NUTS and i did everything I could to get rid of them, rubbing, combing, leaving them etc...nothing worked. My hair was too soft. Anyway, they're shorter and I like them :) pictures will come probably on their 6 month bday (23rd october)
Anyway besides the point...does anyone else find that the MORE often they wash their hair the itchier it gets? I like leaving mine for months because it stops my head itching. I think it might be something to do with the fact i have psoriasis on my scalp...kind of like eczema so it makes it flaky. But i've found not washing helps more than washing. Very strange...
Anyway, bit pointless I know... but hope everyones dreads are as happy as mine :) x
