A....Product???

So today I was browsing at Winn Dixie, which is a grocery store for those not down south, and I found a product that fully reminded me of knotty boy's locking gel, because it is called "Jamaican Mango and Lime LOCKING GEL" from Rasta Locks and Twists. Which is apparently a company that sells products for dreads.

A trio of dread-related experiences for yiz...
I put them behind a cut for your reading pleasure.

I think maybe I DO need a t-shirt that says:
"Fifteen years. Yes, they're real. Yes, they're heavy. No, I don't want to talk about them right now."

And now, because I know you all want to see more pics of me standing in front of my work bathroom mirror... Check the bod! I'm wasting away.





huntress

wanted: enthusiastic dreadhead for hair services.

Are there any willing dreadheads in the Barrie/Toronto area who wouldn't mind kicking an afternoon with me helping me form my first set of dreads? Monetary exchange isn't an option since I'm unemployed at the moment (boo..!) but I can pay by way of delicious confectionaries, craft supplies, beadwork, aromatherapy satchels, etc. I actually live in Barrie, but I figured I'd include Toronto as well since they aren't too far away from each other and I thought it might be nice to meet other dread enthusiasts from the area since I'm fairly new to the region and to Canada in general. Hit me up if you're interested!

Also, just for reference, two photos of me and my current Collapse )
snow white is dead

swimming

my dreads will be three months in march. they are tightening up beautifully. for the past four weeks I've been on the swim team at my school. yes I've read the memories and I have been doing the whole rinse before and after. only thing that is bothering me is the amount of loose hairs I have lately. now im not sure if I should be bothered by this or not, since they are extremely young and im sure they'll sort their problems out on their own. but im curious for if any dreaded swimmers in here have anymore advice which is not in the memories. anything will help. thank you.

ill post pictures soon
god is an astronaut

Oh my god

I just spent the last twenty minutes sobbing hysterically in my bedroom.

I think I might have fucking lice. I am going to die.
I'm going to brush my dreads out and start the treatment. I feel like the filthiest person alive on this planet. I probably am.

All I want is to save my hair. I don't even know if that's possible. I wish I was dead, I really do.

Edit:
Is it possible to have the little fuckers and not itch? I have a horrible dandruff problem, and right after I washed my hair I got all itchy, but it has stopped. I rarely itch, also, by the way.
