My mother keeps telling me that my dreaded hair smells horrible. When I wanted her to describe it, she said it smelled dirty, and that she could smell it just by walking past me. I've asked some other friends if they do, and they say that they've never noticed it.
I don't think my mom is lying or trying to make me comb them out by saying this, I just think she might be used to hair smelling like "commercial" shampoos.
But if she's right, and my hair smells bad, I can't figure out why. I used regular shampoo for the first two months, then switched to knottyboy shampoo. I've never used any other products in it. I wash it cirka twice a month. It's def not mildew/mold.
I found a way to add myself to the community :P
It was kindof hard without any of the pics working...
Anyway, my name is Lilian, I'm from the Netherlands
and I am thinking about having real dreads.
I have had falls and braided in dreads, but lately I've been very interested in having then done for real.
Unfortunately it's a bit of expensive to have them doen, so I'm reading into it to do it myself with the help of some friends.
Any tips of you real dreadies before I embark on this adventure?
i really miss my dreads....
