Hello, I'm new! ^_^
I decided to join because I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really want dreads, so I'm doing my research. Please give me huge amounts of advice before I start! Thank you.
By the way, my name is Lon, I work as a dog looker-afterer for an animal shelter in the UK, I love poi, I go dog sledding without snow and I have an Alaskan Malamute called Laika, 4 rats and a baby pigeon. I'm into obscure indie music and I love comedy. Thats the story of me ^_^
fellow nyc-based dreadheads,
since there are so many of us, only a subway ride away from each other in this alienating city, it only makes sense for us to meet up and share our wisdom, right?
please comment if you're interested in coming to some sort of gathering: anybody who needs help with their dreads, anybody willing to share their own experiences and techniques, or just a dreadhead in need of a friend...
it would be awesome if somebody is able to offer up their place for this, but if not i don't see why we can't just meet up in central park or something like that. weather permitting.
anyway, comment with thoughts and ideas of when/where/who/etc
my suggestions of weekends
just wondering as dreads grow the roots arent knotting up as tight as when I first backcomed them. they tend to be loose normal straight hair knotted only a little- its a thinner dread too that then turns into a bit fatter dread lower down (the part that was dreaded in the very first place).. can you backcomb the roots.... how can you get them tight and thicker like when you first backcomb to make your dreads.... felting doesnt always work in this situation.
How do you get tight roots on the new growth that are the same knottedness and thickness as the rest of your dreads?
