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.
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 )
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.
