Does anyone have this Dread picture book? [17 Oct 2007|11:19am]
I saw it a few years ago at a friends house, and never got a chance to look through it...

I would love it as a coffee table book but was wondering if anyone here has it, and if you like it?

Thoughts on Loops and a .Loop.gif [17 Oct 2007|04:56pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

I'm bored. It's my day off. What do people like me do off rare days off work...why....make gifs detailing how loops for in dreadlocks of course!

Loops puzzled me when I was looking at other peoples dreads before I had them. They looked odd and I couldn't figure out how they happened or why. I naievely thought it was probably totally avoidable through excessive palmrolling and maintenance. Nope.

When I had just created dreads on my head - I was scared of loops - yeah I might not have admitted it - but I seriously didnt want them. Nope. Nice uniform dreads for me. Mmm hmm.

Then a few months passed - I've gotten my first proper live music job - so dread get washed more, and obsessed over less.

Then a few weeks I notice *bampf* I have loops, the hair below and above the loops is rock hard - and you know what - I dont care about the loops. I actually rather like them. Having dreads makes my life at home and at work easier than tackling my old 30inch of blonde-tough-longness anyday.

So I made this gif. Yeah its crap - but it shows how my loops are forming...

Stage 1 - hair is newly dreaded
Stage 2 - hair starts to tighten
Stage 3 - Looser sections in hair are created from other sections getting very tight
Stage 4 - tighter sections pull on strands of the looser section - pulling it up
Stage 5 - looser hair is pushed out
Stage 6 - you have a loop.

When my loops go - if they do - ill make the complimentary loop.gif showing how theyre sucked in. But I have to live that stage in my dreadlife first!

And another thing - I loves all yous guys on here. I need more dread friends!
