So about 30 minutes ago I started my 3rd set of dreads. I only have one in so far, and I'm going to take my time putting them in since my last sets were rushed and ended up more trouble than I wanted.
For those who remember me-I was the chick with the boyfriend who didn't want me to get them. Well I said "screw him" Still waiting for him to come home and see his reaction..that will be fun. But after you guys gave me advice I decided that It IS my own hair, not him. I should be loved for whats in the inside not for a hairstyle choice.
Thank you guys!
I'll post some pictures of my lonely dread soon, maybe by then I'll have a couple more. heh
i've had only 4 dreads in my hair up to this point, but two days ago i washed them real good for the first time in a month and was so happy with their fluffy loveliness that i added four more tiny ones and a fattie in the back. i love them so much! which brings me to this: i knw a lot of people say they feel kinda ugly and weird the first few days-->weeks of baby dreads because they're all crazy and you get negative comments and stuff, but did anyone feel more attractive? i definitely never felt attractive about my hair before but now i look in the mirror at it and go damn girl you lookin' fine. well maybe not, but i do feel a whole lot better about myself physically with zees baby dreads! this could also be for the fact that i've only been complimented on them to my face, and although i'm sure i've received negative comments (living in a small midwestern town...) they've been quite hidden behind my back.
also, when i had most of my hair undreaded i'd wrap the four in aluminum foil when i had to take quick morning showers & hair washes (they're a bit too delicate right now for the showerhead). the foil would rip and crumble too much after about two uses, though, so i'm thinking when i do need to wash my hair in this way i'd use clear plastic wrap, which would survive more uses. has anyone done this before? my fear is that it'd melt into my hair under hot water since i turn the water on at the hottest...
okay thank you for any input you lovely people!!
Soooo last sat. I got arrested for disorderly conduct. :(
Me and some friends walked downtown around 5pm started drinking around 6pm and didn't stop untill the bars closed. I guess the last thing i had to drink were 4 double shots of 151 !! which i dont remember. Then on the way home i started fighting with my sister (sometimes i try to beat her up when i am really shitty..i'm dumb) anywho the cops came and tried to talk with us but i thought i could beat the cops up and freaked out really bad. SO I went to jail but the really sad thing is that while i was being booked or whatever they had to CUT all my beads out and my hemp!!! these are beads i have a for 2 years. This whole experience sucked really bad! basically if you are going to jail take your own beads out!
btw i dyed my locks i'll post pix soon!
peace and love
