I didn't read the memories, don't tell me that. :]

I've wondered for a long time now.. about dreads. I think they are the sexiest thing ever. And I would love to have some, but I'm scared to do that because they might just look horrible on me, and I tend to change things a lot, and I've heard you have to shave them off if you don't want them anymore.

So anyways, what I was going to ask was.. I want to know the basics of dreads..

how do you put them in?

do you wash them?

do they smell bad like most people say?

and anything else weird and interesting you would like to tell me would do too. :]

I also don't know if they're knotted as tight as they should be, either. I've been so neurotic about that all of yesterday night, trying to rebackcomb to get the roots more knotted and palm rolling like crazy! [which i know i shouldn't do so oops =( ] anyways, any advice as to the frizz? and oh,

4 monthsish. my friend and I did some felting needle work this past week. I've still got a bunch of loose hairs and my tips are wispy, but i like them that way. its weird thinking that I've had dreads for almost half a year already.
