i think i'm just being paranoid

i'm nervous that I'm not raising my babies right. every time i wake up it seems like they're looser and frizzier, no matter how much i backcomb and palm roll them.
can you show me pictures of yours within the first week or two?

but don't get me wrong, i love them to the max plus tax, regardless. I just want them to stick around for a while

Sports and Dreads

I've been thinking about getting dreadlocks for about a year (oddly enough, when my mother mentioned that she thinks I'd look good in them). My hair begins to dread naturally if I leave it alone, and I like the idea of not having to wrestle with my curls every morning (even though I do like the way they look when they behave). I'm thinking I will probably get them done not too long after classes end, but I have some reservations.

I'm actively involved in judo and hapkido. Both of them involve a lot of throwing and falls, and I was wondering if there is any way dreads could make this a problem. I will need to be able to pull my hair back to keep it out of my face and my opponents for practice and competition and I was wondering if there might be an acceptable way to do this with dreads (with undreaded hair longhairs usually braid or French braid). Obviously I wouldn't be able to wear beads in my dreads if I'm going to be active in these sports. A wooden or glass bead smacking an opponent in the eye would probably not go over well.
