Okay, so besides a ton of rediculous computer problems and not having a camera right now, I've finally made it up to posting here! I really dig this community and I've been wanting to get some pictures up. Heres my nappy babies at 1 year 4 months, I've gotten around to cleaning up some loose hairs, but not many
If I knew how to do a sweet hyperlink to more pictures, I would, but I don't.
i found this while looking for pictures of crazy long dreadlocks... http://www.answers.com/topic/dreadlocks ... it gives a very good history of dreadlocks, and anyone with any questions about the origins or beliefs behind dreadlocks should read it.
Since my dreads are small I thought about spiking them but I didnt want to stick anything like glue or gel in my hair so I made spikes by rubber banding the tips. I only had the bands in for the day, I didnt want to mess up the baby dreadlets forming.
I figured we should have more pictures and examples of dreadhawks being styled in some way.
Popped into my local Lush recently and a nice chap recommended a couple products for dreads: Soak and Float shampoo bar, and Breath of Fresh Air spray toner (between washes). Used both and they're absolutely wonderful; the shampoo bar was just fantastic. So heads up to UK dreadies! :)
Ok so recently I became inspired by a dreadhead I saw in town her BEAUTIFUL dreads were down to her waist and some she'd wrapped with wool in the most awesome colours. I searched the memories but could only find entries about extending dreads with wool or felting wool into your dreads but I was wondering whether anybody here had wrapped their dreads, if so has wool wrapped around dreads hindered or helped? Any information volunteered on the subject would be greatly appreciated and a thousand apologies if I missed it in the memories. Also expect a post soon demonstrating the effects of felting my dreads
So since I've gotten my dreads two weeks ago, I've always worn them back at work to be a little more neat for the customers. Not a lot of people really comment on them, but today and elderly lady asked me to find something for her. When I found it, and reached down to get it for her, she said "I love you're hair, it's gorgeous." I thanked her for the comment, but it didn't really strike me as odd until later on in the night when I thought about it.
I never expected one of the nicest comments to come from an age group who are usually quite conservative.
Does anyone else get compliments from people you don't expect?
