so, is putting hairspray on dreads as bad for them as i think it is?

my hair is doused in aqua net, and i can't help but wonder if my dreads won't absorb the stuff and i'll have hairspray residue in my hair for all eternity.

that, or have my dreads snap off like twigs.

being a performer has it's setbacks it seems.


hey there. i was going to post and say that i stopped brushing my hair in april.. after lots of talk about dreading up and even a session of backcombing that i brushed out. the left side of my head has dreaded up much faster than the right.. which leaves me with hair about 2-3" longer on the right side. i think it's funny.. but this week has been one where i don't love them. most weeks i adore my hair.

they change every time i wash them and i love touching them. i want them to grow long enough to wrap up and cuddle in. there is one underling that formed almost right away, of course.. and it's about 4" long. the shortest dread on my head. and the very first one that formed was a cowlick on the top left back of my head.. it is a big one. my hair was even length until this past weekend, after doing a sweat lodge, almost the entire left side has been sucked up.

the only maintainence i do is ripping them apart every couple weeks. i was throwing different beads in and taking them out.. but i stopped that for now. i have two beads in now. one is, i think, a shell, thin beige circle (i wear another as a pinky ring) and the other is a white peyote bead with purple flowers.

nice to officially meet you.. i've probably been lurking for 2 years or so.. and theblanketthing was my inspiration. isn't she beautiful?

I know this is pretty much off topic, so if you want to delete this post, I understand. However, you do see my dreads :)

Recently in Coll. Psych I was assigned to make a "self portrait" of myself. I did this in video format. I was wondering if you could watch it and tell me what you think, with the sound on. Lots of dread footage too :) It's pixellated though, sorry >.> YouTube >.<

So, since I never got to go to the Shpongle Hallowe'en Ball in my Aztec costume, I thought I might as well just dress up and post pics on livejournal, just so it's kind of like I was there. In spirit.

here's a fun little game - find the out of place faerie
who'd gotten all dolled up in other people's clothes and
makeup, and yet still managed to look like a confuzzled
and pondering deer-caught-in-headlights. everyone else
looks so dark, and manage to make sexy stares for the cam,
and then there's me. i'm pretty sure i was watching someone
get flogged.

so i don't have dreads. i've wanted them since i was little and i'm going to get them now, unless if this stops me. i have an oily scalp therefore my hair gets greasy after a couple days of not washing. i wash it every day or every other day.
so has anyone expierienced this and be able to answer my questions?
if i dread my hair would i be able to wash it every other day with the anti-residue shampoo without them getting too loose?
if not, would it be noticeable and as disgusting as i am thinking it would look?

you guys are gonna get so sick of me

heres a bit of information thats gonna make you go wtf, how stupid is this chick. and i agree with you whole-heartedly.
few weeks ago, i had some woman rework the roots of my dreads i didnt know about that little thing called patience that is so important in times like these - and now, they seem slightly fucked. it was a very simple procedure of putting hair bonder on the roots. i didnt really know what to make of this at the time, but now i wish i had run from the room. the roots of my dreads are goopy, for lack of a better word. and if i go to scratch my head, or move a dread, i get black crap all over my fingernails. when in the shower, ive been trying to pull the stuff off, and it seems a few of the dreads are pretty sweet. but then theres the rest of them.

a small part of me hs wanted to just shave my head coz of all this hassle, but im determined to get this right and one day have beautiful locks.

help? advice?
