i did my first three dreads today. they are currently pulled back, so they aren't crazily sticking up. this is my first set, and they are natural, only backcombed and palmrolled. i have semi short hair, so i don't know how well this will go.
any advice is appreciated.
i would post pictures, but i'm new to lj and have no idea how to do a cut, or add a picture.
i however will figure this out soon.
and post again.
btw, i absolutely love everyones dreads. and thank you for consuming my late nights of boredom.
so. It's time for a change! I was thinking about cutting my dreads. not off, just... shorter.
does anybody have pics of a successful dread bob? or something of the like?
(I'm sure you guys can imagine what comes up when you google search "dread bob" and it's not what I'm looking for :P)
soo i took a shower just a few minutes ago. you should all know that i'm really gettin sick of my red. i've dyed it so many times but it fades within days, and i just don't want to keep up with it anymore. i thought i did but....anyway! so now i just REALLY want to get the color out as much as possible. so i went to grab my dishsoap and passed by the fridge and thought "i wonder if we have lemon juice" which we did. there was a bottle of it with some left at the bottom. i was going to put the dishsoap away and thought "...could i combine the two?" so i squeezed some of the orange liquid dishsoap into the lemon juice bottle, and diluted it a little with some water. when i was in the shower, i poured it along the top of my head on my scalp, and just let it drizzle over my dreads. i massaged slowly, and rinsed. now, lately, my dreads have been feelin NASTY. like, brillo pad nasty. but there not even two months yet, so i didn't want to condition and have them fall out. anyway, i rinsed and got out of the shower only to feel the SOFTEST DREADIES EVER. i feel like i have rolled up little blankets on my head, their so fuzzy and soft. AND they smell awesome! like lemons and oranges! :D i was so proud of myself!
has anyone else tried combining dishsoap and lemon juice?
