(no subject)

Hey there. I've been a long-time lurker and debated getting dreads for about 2 years. I FINALLY took the plunge this Sunday. After 15 long hours, they were complete! However, they seem almost seem like they're back to my normal hair, only in sections? I know that I'm not supposed to re-backcomb, but it almost feels necessary. I re-backcombed a couple of them that were extremely loose and even the middles were splitting.

opinions? suggestions?

i know, i know, patience.
ohlook

Long time lurker, first time blah blah blah...*waves*

Accusations first, you folks are collectively responsible at least in part, for me taking the plunge and doing the dread thing. I used to have long, fine straight hair just past my waist, and was a chronic synth dread wearer. It was getting to the point where I was removing the extensions to dye my hair and brush out the dead stuff. Then I'd pretty much put the double enders straight back in again. That was getting to be a bit ridiculous, I thought, so I went ahead and did it for real. And, as I said before, all the photos you guys post of your beautiful locks were rather persuasive, so , thanks !

So, now they are three months old, and I've finally gotten off my arse to take Collapse )

Random....Or not?

So I work at my local Hot Topic as a friendly sales associate (myself by far being the most friendly)  and today was the most awesome random event. I was working the register when suddenly I realized it was like all the lovely dready people in salem had suddenly come into my store. I looked around and there were 5 count em 5 other people with dreads! I was ringing up one of my fellow dread head when she commented on how nice she thought mine were and asked how long i'd had them. My weird hair ego inflated a little when she was shocked and said she had been working on hers for two years and insisted I take her number so I could help her with her hair. Then a girl walked in with a beautiful green tam and when I asked her where she got it she said she'd made it herself, and TADA had dreads as well! That makes 6 total people I saw in my store with dreads today. So has anyone else ever had this happen? a sudden seemingly random abundance of dreadies in a very centralized location? Syncronicity perhaps?
