hey everybody im new to this community i havent used LJ in sooooooo long but i got on the other day and found this community and i love all the pics and storys about dreads so i decided to join...... my dreads are about 3 and a half weeks old now AND I LOVE THEM! they are really starting to tighten up quite nicely. any one got any tips on how to take care of loose hairs at the roots? i tried doing the whole crochet hook thing but it just seemed to tear the dreads apart more then take care of the loose hairs.


ill post some more pics as soon as i remember how to use an lj-cut correctly

week 5

we are getting there! Its probably SO much harder having short hair and starting dreads than starting with long hair!

p.s....i forget who it was but someone was supposed to paypal me shipping for beads? Im not sure who it was but i would still like them and i never got a paypal invoice! TY!

okay, so i jumped the gun... 1 day before they're 1 mos old

Alright, so this may be a little pre-mature... but I couldn't help it haha. Tomorrow is 1mos since I've had them. :)
The ones at the front, anyway. My roomate redid 6 in the back for me about a week ago that had fallen out because my arms were tired by the time I got to the back.
Tomorrow if it's nice I'm going to head down to the beach and dunk them in the ocean, even if I don't go in myself.
I haven't exposed them to salt water yet, but I'm excited to see what happens. It's convenient that there's salt water in every direction I travel.
