Is any of this true?

My ex is bugging me about dreads and he said he read this....and thinks i shouldn't get dreads because of it.....
soooo is this true?

Resist the temptation to shampoo a new set of dreads for at least two weeks. Your scalp will eventually acclimate to the new schedule. When your locks are secure, consider a wash every four days to two weeks, depending on how your scalp feels.

New dreads may unravel with a lot of help, but in general dreads won't wash out. Should you decide to move on to a new style, you'll need to cut the dreads off and start with a fresh head of hair.

What you'll need to wash them:
* Hosiery
* Bedsheets
* Lukewarm Water
* Body-building Shampoos
* Deep Conditioner
* Hot Oil Treatments
* Protein-based Shampoos
* Special Shampoos For Normal Hair
* Video Game Consoles

ok so how many people here think they have ocd- i mean by playing with their hair constantly. dude, i cant help it, in every class i've played with or twisted or fixed a bead.. when i'm at a red light i palm roll! i hope its just an ocd thing than a vain thing ya know?

another thought- i've never used wax (except the day i started em). theyre like 1/2 year old and the knots are coming out a lil and they just dont look tightened. until the summer when i'm at the beach everyday, do you think i should just use the wax once, just slather it on, let it sit for a few days and wash it?

my roots are as long as 4 inches brown in some places.
i've had breakage from bleaching and .....
LOVED the results.

done with the blonde. DONE!
thinking about turning the colours of a sunset, soon.

and him? oh, gorgeous HIM! they're around 6 months old, healthy and perfectly formed. when i started them, he had (at the longest) 4 inches of hair. even i was shocked they took so well, so quickly (his hair was that of pristine virgin strength and shine, intermixed with coarse grays that are souvenirs of stresses long past.)

when we go out, people take our pictures* and compliment us
(HIM! OFTEN HIM! not me!!!!! O.o)
and it feels good.
(*last night we had the dog in his bumblefudge costume, and gsus, walking down the sidewalk was bloody impossible. everyone wanted to pet all of us. EEEP!)

my business has been picking up heavily in southern california since my return. i'm going with it. last night, i attended a party where multiple heads represented my work. it was like a my own stealthsubtleninja art show! ♥

cheers, pretty faces!
just checkin in <3

Hello peeps!
Had my first ever dread dream earlier and thought I would share: I dreamt that instead of growing, dreads were made out of massive cubes of hair that were put into machines where you turned a handle and they came out the other side like spaghetti. Then you had to supergue them onto a bald head.
I have bizarre dreams...
While I'm here; any dreadheads from Brighton? Fancy meeting up?
Also, I don't know if it's just a Brighton thing, but have other people noticed that when the weather gets warmer, more people with dreads appear? I swear they migrate here like birds!

Hi there lovely people! Haven't posted in a while... mais j'ai une question.

I'm pretty sure I have some excess shampoo in my dreads that I haven't been able to rinse out for a while. Like when I feel towards the roots, it's kind of...not really sticky but that's the closest I can come up with haha.
And I believe in the memories someone mentioned soaking your head in a bucket of water LOL... is this what you would reccomend? ..and how exactly would you go about doing that? haha. 1. gets bukket, 2. fill with water. 3. stick head in bucket.

Oh, and also, my babies turned one month last tuesday! Collapse )

They get better and better every day, thanks to Gudu! ^_^
