 ok, i am really down right now. is it possible for hair to be TOO CURLY and unruly to dread? it seems like the hair just keeps unravelling itself to curl and be poofy. the dreads are pretty skinny...maybe i'll try combining them, but i'm still a little disappointed...

does anyone have any pictures of curly hair when it is first dreaded? or some kind words (haha)? i know it is a long process to lock up, but they won't even stay a little tangled.

Real dreadlocks are the result... of a chemical.... BURN....

This dude, dunno maybe 50yrs, stops me walking through the grocery store. He says,
"Hey, girl! What's wrong with your hair?"
"What's wrong with my hair???"
"Yeah, what's wrong with it?"
"It's tangled and knotty!"

Does anyone know what "chemical" this fellow spoke of??? I'm clueless. He kept saying "You know..." but I DON'T KNOW! So maybe someone here is wiser in the ways of the world than me and can let me know???

On a side note this other guy stopped me in the checkout and gave me a sweet little cross charm he says came from Mexico. It's an awesome little thing. He said it would bring me luck (^_^) w00t!

 hey everyone!  searched the memories didnt find what i was looking for.  so on friday i'll be dying my hair blonde that is to say bleaching it.  i do not have dreads....yet.  my inquiry is this should i wait to dread until my hair is stronger?  i know dying hair causes lots of damage and i dont want to start off with weak dreads.  i naturally have very dry hair and anything chemical dries it out further.  if im going to be backcombing that causes more damage.  i just dont want weak brittle dreads so any insight into the matter would be great!!
