I started my dreads late march / early april of this year. I recently
got internet at home back, so this is my first post here.
I had been lurking the memories using the library for a
while, however. I decided to dread becauseeee
- my hair was always knotting up anyway
- I was often to lazy to brush it
- dreads look good
- dreads look more natural to me
- my hair is thin and I felt it would give it more body
- I thought it would be nice when they grow older
- I can put beads and things in them and dye each one a different colour
- I thought it would help me to grow my hair longer than unknotted due to breakage
- I can so totally flail my head and whack my toddler with them.
Either that or I have been listening to entirely too much reggae( a short timelineCollapse )
and it does something to your brain via seeping into your skin
and making you happy and wanting to get down to the nitty
gritty and feel more natural and simplistic?! Well, that's wot
a friend suggested happened, anyway. Whatever reason
won me, I am absolutely in love with my knots and loops.

We would love to place get_up_dread_up in the LJ Spotlight, beginning November 8, 2010.
Spotlights generally last for seven days and result in increased activity, posts, and comments. They can also bring anywhere from hundreds to thousands of new members. If you don't already moderate posts in your community, you might want to do so during the spotlight period. Everything will calm down after it's over, but it's a good idea to keep an extra eye on things while you're in the spotlight.
If you don't want your community to be in the spotlight, please let us know by replying to this email and we'll shine our light elsewhere.
If you have any problems or questions during the spotlight period, please contact our Support team here: http://www.livejournal.com/support/submit.bml
Enjoy the spotlight!
