I got my dreads done by lishd
on the NW coast about two weeks ago while on vacation. I have since made it back home to eastern NC. The weather change is doing something wicked to my scalp. My skin had gotten fairly dry and flaky adjusting to the weather out there, and now I am back someplace very very humid and very very hot. My flakes have turned into something more like... itchy scalp mush. And to make matters worse - I work out and run.
I am continuing with my washing every 3-4 day thing and hoping for the best. I was wondering, for those of you who work out regularly, how often do you wash your scalp/wash your hair and what your routine is like. I am going to start attending a family gym here, so I kind of want to not give a bad impression to folks about dreadlocked people (I don't want to stink or have icky looking hair).
I am looking for a plain green peyote stitch cuff for my hair. Actually, I am looking for a bunch of plain ones in different colors. Where's my best bet to buy some? Or do any of you crafty folk out there make them for sale? I thought about making some myself, since my mother is into jewelry making and has every kind of bead and floss and wire known to human kind, but I am pretty sure that would end in disaster...
Forgive me if this is worded all... wonky and crap. I spent 5hrs 17min 47sec on the phone with Ben yesterday. (Oh, and lishd
, provided I have the hair, I will be up there next year for maintenance. Ben and I are officially a couple thing now, after two-and-a-half years of his not so subtle hinting. He reminds me of all your hair care tips from the visit, and I caught him palmrolling my hair for me when we were watching TV one night ZOMG ADORABLE.
...my tl;dr way of saying I am moving out to the Seattle/Tacoma area in the spring.)
