Newbie dreads!

Hokay, so. Got them done yesterday! (Or this morning, whichever you prefer. Took a we bit.) Anyways, they are obviously VERY poofy, had an excellent side show Bob look which I will post pictures of sooon. Just a quick question. Obviously one should not wash them for x amount of time when they are all fresh and new. I was just curious about getting them wet? I know it seems popular to palmroll them when wet, and some of them are difficult to do dry since, as time went on, they got a wee bit flatter and flatter (Tired hands :)) Can I wet them to try and control the poof/help with palmrolling the first day or just live with the 'fro?
Thanks :D

Red!

I know I just posted a couple of days ago, but after debating it for a while I finally decided to dye my hair today. I have always loved being a red head - it just seems to fit me so much better. I used to dye it all the time from about age 11-17 so people that knew me back then and would see me recently would ask me why I decided to dye over my "natural" red hair. They would always act shocked when I'd admit that dark brown was my natural color. ^_^

I debated whether I wanted to dye it because I have always loved my dreads for being "natural", but I realized that they can still be natural to me if it's what I'm more comfortable with. I have always hated my natural color. I have extremely dark hair on the left side of my head and light, almost blonde on the right. It's weird. I feel a lot better now that I did it and I love the results. My cousin did it for me (she's also the one who helped create my locks). She always does a phenomenal job.

Anyway, on to the photos.

Today was the first time since my dreads' birth that I used anything other than all natural products in it. I'm not sure how I feel about that yet, but it achieved the results I wanted and I suppose that's what matters. I needed a change.
