Bleach is like Bacon, so bad yet so good... [23 Dec 2009|04:19pm]
I posted for my two monthes, now I'm at 2 and a half. I just wanted to show off my freshly bleached locks... It's rare I feel outgoing about my looks, so I'm going with it! I had some serious roots growing in, so I needed them done. It just seems to take me forever to have time, even with being snowed in the house for two days. 
On with the pictures!!Collapse )

i started my dreads on nov. 19th this year in asheville while visitng...

ive ran into some problems while im locking my hair. my locks seem loose, not really nappy, and i cant figure out how to make them tighten up. my roots seem really loose, too, and frizzy - right now all i do is palm roll, i dont use much wax at all. i dont see much of a difference in my dreads when i palm roll them. are there any other methods i can use (i want to use as little product as i can in my hair) to tighten my dreads? also on the roots i twist them around and roll them around in a circle on my scalp. am i doing something wrong? 

also, what should i NOT put in my dreads? i know regular shampoo should not be used under any circumstance.. but in a bind, can i use an organic soap? (ive used chandrika sandalwood soap since ive had them, and only once.. its been awhile haha... that soap has been fine but im just not sure.)

when trying to make two smaller dreads take into one bigger one, what should i do?

also what is this jazz i hear about wax being bad for your dreads and getting all up in there and making them fall apart in later years? im overwhelmed by dready superstition...

thanks you guys - im working on my second month.
