grandparents and dreads

I've had my dreads for 2 months now.  I love them.  I was worried at first at how my grandparents would respond to them.  They are in there late 80's and I wasnt sure if it would upset them.  I went out to eat with them the other day and my grandpa said "I really like your new hair it makes you look very pretty" 
Also I've been looking for a tam does anyone know any online places where I can get one for cheap???


So many beautiful sets of dreads have been posted recently!  Make me really really miss the crazier early days of my dreads.

I used to have crazy, messy, wild, frizzy dreads like this:Collapse )

Today I have still slightly messy, a little frizzy, and rarely wild and crazy dreads like this:Collapse )

Scalp medications and dreads

I checked the memories. I have psoriasis. A moderately severe case. In order to keep my scalp clear I have to use a steroid solution on my head daily. Does anyone have personal experience with long term use of a steroid/alcohol combo on dreads/roots? I am becoming quite fond of the dread I let form to see how my scalp would react.
Thanks so much!
