dear mods,

can we please have a READ BEFORE POSTING requirement? a list of FAQ? the memories are great, but if we could just list some very simple FAQs in the info, that would help so much.

don't get me wrong, i love people, and i love new people. but we get the same questions at least 4 times a week.

Q: here is my picture. would i look good with dreads?
A: who knows? we all love dreads, so we will tell you yes. but you need to decide for yourself.

Q: does my hair need to be dirty to dread?
A: no, clean hair dreads better.

Q: should i use wax?
A: it's a personal choice. some people think it helps and makes them neater, some think it's gross and greasy.

Q: my hair is very short/long/thin/thick/purple, can i still have dreads?
A: yes. everyone can have dreads. it may be easier for certain hair types than others, but everyone can have them.

Q: should i get them done professionally?
A: if you want them to look neat and perfect from the start, go ahead. if you're willing to wait and let them develop their own personality, don't.

i love you all.
