Hi, I'm Jamus, my dreads are about a week and a half old, and at first I was using bands and wax, and I decided to give all that up. It's a lot more fun to get them started myself and let them take form all by their own will. I'm taking my time with this. I make 7 or 8 dreads at a time, play with them a little bit, and then just let them do their own thinig. It's fun, I'm starting to get questions from my friends and people at work. I had someone tell me yesterday that they didn't like my hair. It's one of those things where I'm really realizing that I'm doing this for me and nobody else ^__^. Anybody else had those kind of experiences with individuals with a slender perspective?
