Tomorrow (well really later today)
I'm going to go buy some shampooooo,
and beads and things for my dreads.
Then I'm going to start them!
Im kinda nervous but REALLY excited.
Thanks for all the input on my last entry.
You'll be seeing pictures of em soon :]
I've read the memories very thoroughly in my time, and more than once (because who doesn't love procrastinating on LiveJournal? LJ >>>>> work). But I haven't found the answer to what I'm wondering about, maybe because it's not there, maybe because I'm blind and stooopid. But anyway.
For those of you who've had experience adding dreadlocks of foreign origin to your own hair (foreign as in, made of synthetic fiber, or wool, or human hair, just so long as it's not your own hair), how did you do it, and what worked well, if anything?
I'm tossing around the idea of adding some wool (maybe) dreads to my own, just for fun, but I have no idea how to do that successfully. I've tried attaching a double-ended dread to my own, and it turned out rather fugly. So, any tips for an un-creative loser? All I found in the memories are posts about adding extensions to, well, extend the length of your dreads, and that's not what I'm looking for.
Hey all, I've just put in new dreads...well, in the process of....and I was wondering if you all could give some tried and true (or ones that worked for you) methods of how to make them lock better and faster...well, faster is relative.....I had them once before...but they were miserable and not locking at all after several months...so I cut them...and now with much shorter hair, am trying again!!!
I'm very excited and wish for some advice from *experienced* dreadheads...
Wax or no wax....rubberbands?? washing?? what's the information you can give me??? I read a bit in the memories section....but trying to piece together all that information gives a worse headache then backcombing five inch hair!!!! ;)
Thanks all and peace!!!
