I've never posted here before but I figure what better time than now. I do not have dreads, yet. I am doing tons and tons of research on the topic for an essay, and would like to get the opinions of everyone here willing to give me theirs. I'd like to know why you chose to lock your hair, and if you have any identification with Rastafarian culture. Also, if you could provide your ethnicity that would be great as well. :)
edit: i just read the memories but i still would like to know the latter two questions responses in correlation with the first.
Hello all, hope you're enjoying the cold afternoon (I am here in the UK) Just a query for anyone living in the UK (or outside, if you know) Im after some falls, wool ones, but I can only find ones that are 24" or shorter, (my own dreads are as long as that!) and aren't very thick.
I am after some that are longer (like, down my back/bum length) and have tons of dreads on each side. Does anyone know where I can get these from? I usually buy Cyberlox from Miss Needles (Ebay) but even she hasn't got any!
I've been posting A LOT lately... but I'm also loving my hair lately and for some reason being home makes people go insane with their cameras (including me). Don't worry though, I'm going to africa next semester. :)
i'd like to ask you beautiful people for a cock sized favour... well, not cock sized, nothing to do with cocks or other genitals... i just like that phrase... anyways, i'm doing some artwork based on dreads for my college project, and i'd really like it if some of you could send me a link to your favourite picture of you, or a friend, or anyone with dreads. not all images will be used if there is 100's, but i will use as many as i can. i'm looking at the cultural side of dreadlocks and why we have them, and what they represent and mean to us, why we got them etc.........
all i ask is that the pictures are nice and natural, not edited in any way (unless you like the image in black and white, sepia etc) and that it is not your typical ''myspace shot pose'' type thing....ya know, having the camera above your head while you pout haha.... i dont see many of those here anyways so thats good.
i just wanted to ask because obvisouly i dont want to just use random peoples pictures without asking them.
sooo post awayyy :) i will put up pictures of my artwork as it comes out.
