Almost three years old.
Fell asleep on the couch last night with some friends, the husband thought it was cute and took this picture.

I've read the memories about how it's always a good idea to section your hair before dreading, and all the possible things that can go wrong if you don't...

My question is this:  Has anyone in here just sectioned as you went along?  Just sort backcombed without rubberbanding or braiding - and how'd it turn out?

Today I went to a casting and filming session for a local zombie film, I guess they are making a big deal out of it in all of Maine, because it was on the news and everything.
[article about it that was on the news tonight... with me doing my grindcore scream and the thriller zombie dance here: http://www.wcsh6.com/video/news/player.aspx?aid=12102&sid=49784&bw=hi]

I realized that dreadlocks really add to the whole 'chic zombie' look because...

Fire, Pics, Products [13 Jan 2007|11:01pm]
[ mood | sore ]

G'evening peoples! im a bit new to this community, although the memories have helpped me get started on my dreads about 1 year...and 9months ago.

so after looking through the memories and such, i have noticed that nobody has said anything about fire. I have tried lemons, salt, and everything else. but fire! nothing is as much fun as taking a lighter to your head and see those little loose strands singe, or better yet, a whole portion of my head be engulfed by a flash of flame.

It temporarily takes care of those stranglers (roots).
It can help out a lot with the tips (if you want them more neat/rounded).

If you burn the roots they grow back.
It smells like burnt hair (no sht eh?).

pics of meCollapse )
now heres a question for the general population:
What products do you use in your hair?
Il get it started:

Dr. Bronners Pure Castile Soap (Organic, unscented)
(i like it, but if i dont rinse out i smell funny for 27 hours 42minutes and 3seconds. it also seriosly rapes my hair of dye, so im looking for something nicer to dye)

Fantastix Honey wax+shea butter
(does what wax does, nothin special. smells good IMHO)

Dye (blue)
Jerome Russell's Punky Color Atlantic Blue:
(The best dye i have every used, highly reccommended.)
Avatar Funky Fruit:
(cheap alternative if i cant find punky color, fades quickly)
Jazzing Mood Indigo by Clairol:
(This dye sucks horribly, it washed out in my rinse practically, i thought i messed up, so i applied with heat, lots of it, still didnt last...a few days)

One summer i worked on the beach, and i noticed how much tighter my dreads got with tons of sun and salt exposure, i have since tried to emulate that but have not had great luck.

"Real Lemon 100% Lemon Juice" +preservatives
(easier than squeezing lemons, and feels+smells nice with occassional use, not sure how pratical/usefull)
Reese Sea Salt Fine Chrystals All Natural.
(helps dry my hair out and feels good on skin, but it gives white flakes that may appear to be dandruff...)
