New member, some specific hair type questions [14 Oct 2008|01:53am]
First, I've read the majority of the memories, some multiple times if they pertain to starting new dreads, sectioning, and hair type.

however.. I'll still a little stumped. (I'm sorry If I'm repeating, Its hard to soak in so much information quickly"

I've been thinking about getting dreads for quite some time, and I have decided that now is the time to do it

I know a lot of the size your dreads will come out depends on your hair type, but I am interesting in seeing examples from some of you to get a general idea of what I'm looking at. Before/after dreads preferably, a description would be so much help.

Another question I have is about parting, currently I have a diagonal side part that I think suits me. When it comes to dreads, how do you part them, and did you take this into account while sectioning?

Below the cut I have a picture of my hair, a little description of the hair I have and the dreads that I want

Please help, and thank you in advance!

Mah hur is purty not durty! [14 Oct 2008|03:43pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

Man I was just driving home from the grocery store, and I had my window rolled down because it was unusually sunny in the Pacific NW. So at a stoplght I hear some girl yell at me: "Wash your hair lady!"
So, me being a nice lady, I yelled back: "Fuck you. I DO wash my hair."
With perfect timing to drive away at the green light :D

It makes me mad though, 'cause I didn't wash my hair any more than I do now when I didn't have dreads. I've even had friends be like "Do you still wash your head?" XD
(I might even wash my dreads more than I did my hair! ;p)

And now a webcam pic for good measure!

anyone here ever comb out dreads in kinky and/or very tightly curled hair?

my dreads are over 3 1/2 years old, and are locked down tight.

i've been considering combing out a handful of the front ones as several of them are disintegrating. if a com out is possible, i'm toying with the idea of braiding the loose hair into long micro-braids so i can have some of the movement/appearance of loose hair, without the maintenance of loose hair (make sense?)

anyway, i'm not even sure if it's a task that's even doable considering how tightly dreaded my hair is, and how naturally tangly it is.

and so this isn't all text:

here's a bad phone pic of me and my throwing knivesCollapse )

That kid... [14 Oct 2008|09:43pm]
I met this kid after school the other day. He was kind of an ass, but he was asking me questions about my dreads (and i was answering). Then he said that he'd kind of like to have dreads and i got kinda excited and told him that i could dread his hair for but, but that it would have to be longer.
He asked me how i did mine and i told him that i back-combed them. He was like oh, no i don't want to do mine like that...
I asked him if he wanted to do them the neglect way and he said, 'No, i want cool dreads'

i still haven't figured out what he meant...

Biotin Experiment [14 Oct 2008|10:45pm]
So, I just bought a bottle of Biotin as well as another bottle of B Complex.

I realize there is no "proof" or studies that Biotin or B vitamins help your hair grow faster.  Yes, I have read the memories, as well as other research.  So, since I gather there have been no experiments done on this topic, I was thinking: Why don't we start our own informal experiment here on GUDU?

I started the biotin today.  Is anyone else interested in starting biotin with me and we can compare notes to see if we think it is really helping our hair grow faster?

Just a silly though!


sending love to the dreadies

ok so something that I have gotten a lot recently is people will be like "oh your hair is so tight cause it looks like lil wayne's hair"
and then this guy was lookin at me and my sis and said to me that i look like lil wayne's sister lol and then told my sis that she looks like don king. Its kinda funny though cause a kid used to call me don king when i was little but now i am lil wayne's sis. crazy! do any of you have people tell you that you look like someone just because you have locks?
