[ mood | sleepy ]

hi, 
i've wanted to have dreads ever since i was 10 or something(not that that is such a long time ago, but anyway), and a couple of years ago my wish came true, but not for very long. i got some sort of dreads in the summer, but come school, i had to chop 'em all off again. my school is VERY strict on the dress & hair codes. anyway, so this year, now my hair has grown out a bit more, i want to get them again, but get done "properly" and permanantly. BUT, i don't know where i can get them done, or i don't know the best tecnique to do them myself. i live in turkey, but i'm thinking about getting them done in england, so if anyone knows anywhere where dreads are created in england(anywhere on the isles is great), or knows a really effective and not-too-complicated method of making them, i would be really appriciative of feed-back or advice.

So, I did it, but only on a small scale. I started a test dread last night. Sorry, no pictures. I left my USB cord for my camera in Ontario. I'll have it eventually.

The last time I got a haircut was in June, and it was short and spiked and looked like an outgrown chelsea cut.

When I do go to do my entire head, I intend to leave my bangs undreaded. So, when I made this dread last night, I put it just behind my bangs. Here's the breakdown:

- I used a similar technique to backcombing, but I'm lazy and haven't gone to Walmart or whatever and picked up a flea comb from the pet section. Instead, I basically grabbed a section of hair and rubbed it together, but in a similar pattern to backcombing, and ripping and twisting to draw all the knots up.

- I then palmrolled, and knew by the texture that I was off to a good start. One major way to tell was by looking in the mirror and seeing that this new lock was sticking straight up.

- I did this right before bed, so I went to sleep like normal, then basically forgot about it when I woke up. It survived the night. It stuck up even more so when I found my mini plastic comb that was in a stupid little compact mirror I keep in my purse for some reason. I used the comb to push the knots closer to my scalp. My hair's still short, so it's taken some persuasion to get it to lie down normally.

- I washed my hair this morning like normal, not really expecting it to stay in. Surprise! It did! So I palmrolled it while wet and seperated all of the non-dreaded hair around it. Then blowdried my hair like normal, paying special attention to dry out the new dread to see what would happen.

- It survived me wearing a hat today (it's cold, I live in Northern Alberta, it happens), and pulling the hood of my sweater over it whenever I went out for a smoke. I basically paid it no special attention, except periodically making sure it wasn't sticking out all weird.

The best part (for now) is that nobody noticed, or said anything negative. I was face to face in conversation with both bosses. They didn't notice. So far, so good.

Someone mentioned awhile ago how there was a guy on this season of American Idol with dreads.  Well, I watched tonight partly because I wanted to see this boy...aaaaand let's just say I'm well on my way to being in love :)  He's extremely attractive, absolutely adorable on camera, aaaaaand he has a pretty dang good voice too.
