Weird Problem [07 Mar 2008|05:53am]
My dreads are like two weeks old and it seems the more I mess with them the more they just fall apart. I try palmrolling and after I do it my dread is almost completly apart, I don't know what to do about this, it took nearly 12 hours to get my hair done with all the backcoming and stuff and dreadwax.

I haven't washed them since it was done because i'm afraid that the water will litterly just have them fall all the way apart and I don't want to lose them but the person that did them I'm not talking to anymore so I have no help at all.

Has John chopped off his dreads?

I saw him on the tv this morning with a short haircut and a few short dreads... had to do a double take...

my dreads [07 Mar 2008|01:49pm]

the dreads at the back are longer then the ones in front, the ones at the back almost touch my behind:) (can be irritating when going to the bathroom.................)

Hello! [07 Mar 2008|03:15pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I just finished back combing a few days ago. I don't have pictures yet and I'm new to the group so I figured I would drop an entry and say hello. I'll have pictures for anyone who is curious soon enough.

my expert opinion on 10,000 BC. [07 Mar 2008|11:43pm]
ok. so we just saw The Dreads Movie, & it was okay. it wasn't great. it required a LOT of suspended disbelief, but ...of course the dreads required the most suspended belief for me.

number of non-dreaded people: pretty much nil
number of dreads i believed: nil

all of the heads of locks looked off in some way. many of them were twists. all looked around 2-3 months old at best, but were miraculously unfrizzy. you could see light through the dreads, which is ridiculous unless they ALL got together as a tribe & decided four months ago to start some knots. some characters had reverse coloring - meaning the actor's beard was gray, but the dreads were dark at the top & gray at the TIPS. the main character had a VERY nappy looking scalp, but all of the hair in his dreads was perfectly straight. one character towards the end went from short twisty mats very suddenly to short shiny waxy twisty mats. gross.

but it's still nice to see that many dreads in a movie, so it's interesting at least, & entertaining at best. my bottom line: see a matinee.
