i went to a prom themed birthday party and i pulled my hair back into a dreadfauxhawk (sorry no good pics) but this is to show how long my loose hairzzz are getting! attack of the curlies! ( Collapse )
I have looked through the memories and I had a hard time finding an Etsy shop list. I don't have dreads, but a few friends do, and I want to get them each a crocheted tam. If you have an Etsy shop that sells accessories for spaghetti-headed folk, please post a link!
Hey fellow mop heads! I had a couple shoots last week and I thought I share a few photos from each with you guys... I'll show you the cemetary shoot first since it shows my dreads better... then The Tattooed Lady shoot. Enjoy! Hope everyone is having a great day!
So, I had to pick up a package from the leasing office of my apartment complex today and they were closed but as luck would have it the maintenance guy was inside and was kind enough to open the door. He is Mexican, I think, and English is not his first language. He's a nice guy - friendly, always smiles and says "hello". But after he retrieved my package, he said something very strange:
I checked the memories on this. I was pretty stupid when I started my dreads and I didn't section them; I let them section themselves and one of them made a large bad section at the base of my neck that has been hurting me and bugging me. I hate it it's flat and ugly. I don't want to rip it into two dreads because it is quite matted. My idea is to comb it out and then section it into smaller dreads. Does that sound like a good or bad thing? If it's bad what should I do?
Edit: Well I combed out the dread and I will be dreading 2 or 3 dreads. I don't have time tonight because I have to wake up early. But I wanted to say I am very glad I combed that dread out. My head already feels better and I found a huge chunk of wax hidden from when it was first started and my mom was trying to 'help' me. It was scary!
I really want to get dreads, and I'm not comfortable doing them myself so i'm trying to find someone in Minnesota that will do them for me! I was told to try Hair Police, has anyone ever had experience with this place? What exactly IS a dread perm? Anyone else know where I can get dreads done in Minnesota?
So, yeah. I know the general consensus was for me to not use wax, but, as I should have mentioned, I had tried doin dreads once before without it, and really disliked the way they looked. I know that if I had waited they'd have gotten better, but, personally I'd prefer them to look somewhat presentable from the start so I can keep them longer. I know there is a possibility of them not looking as good later on (though I have yet to find a post somewhere that has comparison pictures) but 1) I think I will still love them 2) I tend to not have the same opinions as most people and don't care what others think.
I am also not planning to use the wax again. I only used it to make the dreads. So, that being said and out of the way, I am first going to show you the picture of the dreads I just backcombed without wax and then took out:
and then, I will show you this current set, and the process ( Collapse ) that's all, folks!
