hey all!
i'm planning on getting dreads in the near future - i've been thinking about it for almost a year now - but had a few quick questions :)

now i have thin hair that's been dyed blonde - how will this affect my dreadies? will they not lock up as well? or will they be tighter? will they be smaller?

also, i'm a track athlete at my school, so i run about and get pretty sweaty everyday haha. would it not be a good idea to try to create some dreads because of my frequent showers? if anyone has any pointers, suggestions would be wonderful! thanks a bunch!

on finding things to do that didn't involve finishing my theology and philosophy essay, i came up with posting pictures of my dreads, which will be turning 6 months on the 19th of december =)

Checked the memories and didn't see anything that answers this question, so...

How much would you expect to pay to have dreads done by a professional, someone who is experienced with beginning dreads? Or how much have you charged or paid if you've got experience with this?

Also, how would you usually go about finding someone who's experienced with dreads? I get the impression that salons and other professional hair places are usually not the place to go to... I'm in the Portland area, so if anyone can recommend a place or person in that area, it would really be appreciated.

I cut my first set off because they had a lot of problems and I'm rather sure that they were related to not being formed well to begin with... so I want to find someone who knows what they're doing next time.
