Red bandana [24 Aug 2007|02:25pm]
I really want to start wearing a bandana to keep my hair up, and red was the color I figured would go best with most of my outfits. But I live in a city, and all my friends tell me "You can't wear a red bandana! People will think you're in a gang!" I think it's stupid, but at the same time, just because I I think it's stupid doesn't mean I won't get shot walking out in public. I don't like altering myself just because of other people, but at the same time I don't want people making assumptions about me or putting my life at risk. Do you think it's really an issue or is it just people making up stories? Do any of you ever wear red bandanas in the city, and has it caused you problems? Should I just pick another color?

Extensions [24 Aug 2007|04:31pm]
[ mood | proud ]

My dreads have been mistaken for extensions quite a lot recently.

It tickles me when the person is really apologetic when I tell them my hair real as I think it's an awesome compliment! My dreads look so good that they look fake? Whup ass.

*grin*

It's been a little while since I posted pics. They'll be a year old in about a week and a half. It's been a slow process, but I've enjoyed it immensely.

post brush out gunk removal [24 Aug 2007|11:26pm]
hey ya'll
i just finished coming out my 5 month olds. not that i didnt want them, having dreads was a five year dream come true, i am just really into changing things up with my hair. five months was the longest commitment in a while and i def loved them, and will def have more sets in the future. but a question for those of you who have brushed them out, what shampoos/cleaners/etc do you use to remove the excess bits of wax? what do you use for really giving your scalp a good cleansing and getting to its before you dreaded me state?
and fyi: i combed them out using the comb dreadhead.com gave me in my starter set. i used johnson and johnson tearless untangling spray and it took about 5 hours (not all at once!)
lots of love and peace
