topic suggestion

on seeing lotusoxide's previous post, i was wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing their funniest/scariest/strangest dreadlock-related dream? I think that would be cool. maybe we could even put it in the memories.

p.s. i haven't had any yet, exept for the daydreams of having old awesome dreads (this set is a wee 3wks). but I promise I will reply to this when i do!

some of my friends were squatting a house. i go to visit them and just my luck the police turn up. they blatantly ignore that we have a section 6  and therefore squatters rights and proceed to harrass us. we all get patted down and they empty out our bags etc...
The woman spends at least twice as long searching me than anyone else and spends ages checking my dreads (how the hell would i hide stuff in them?!?!) they are very thin and i have very few of them. she had absolutely NO call to root through them like i was hiding a frigging AK47 up there ¬.¬ she was extremely rude to me and im pretty certain they are meant to take girls back to the police station to search them anyways.. we are filing a complaint, not that it will do much.
sorry for subjecting you to my rant :(
obligatory picture for you all:

smelly head

So my babies are 3 weeks old and I've gotten to the point where I can go 5 days without washing my hair! (this is a big accomplishment for me because I am wayyyy obsessive about hair-washing)

After 5 days of not washing them, my mom and I were eating dinner and she starts smelling the air with a concerned look on her face ... and follows her nose right to my head. It wasn't that my head was bad-smelly, it just smelled REALLY STRONGLY of hair in need of a wash. I was kind of mortified and ran upstairs to wash them right away, but what can I do to prevent that sort of smell? (it doesn't help that my natural head-smell kind of smells like lamb, which grosses me out times a million because I hate lamb)

I'm thinking of putting some essential oil in my salt water spray so that every time I spray them, they get a good dose of ... whatever delicious smell. I guess I'll have to tinker around with it to determine what scents go with my natural smell :/ Anybody have any other ideas? I already tried using body spray stuff and it didn't help at all, it just masked the smell for like 5 minutes and then it was back to smelling like dirty hair.

(p.s. I've read the memories already, and I'm not febreezing my head! I hate the way that stuff smells :C )

First post, long time observer.

Hello everyone! I've been oogling over all the fabulous pictures people have been posting for quite a while, and have decided to share with you my own knotty journey (all in chronological order). I've also gotten a lot of great tips on maitenence and whats good and bad, and would like to thank each and every one of you for that.
