You can do it all by yourself, you know.

Thanks :)

At first- My ma wouldn't let me get dreadlocks unless they were professionally done.
I convinced her that that wasn't a great idea for me, because I much prefer the look of messy dreads, and we didn't have the cash for that,
and I am very picky.

I'm sure you could get a friend or two, or even your ma or whoever, to start your dreads for you. Just get educated on the method you wish to use, and go from there.

ok thanks :D, i've been looking at all the different methods and stuff, but it's probab;y a good idea to keep doing research and keep talking to my mum bout it, haha. it would still be cool to talk to someone in person who has dreads and get some advice and have them help me with local places to purchase the neccesities though.

You have a whole forum full of peeps to give you all the advice you fancy.
Given, the lot of us aren't so helpful and over opinionated,
but you get a general idea.
Just search this forum time and time again, you will learn bundles.

What happens if you find someone who "knows what they are doing", spend $200+ and your mom tells you to take them out? I think you should do as everyone here tells you and have her not notice or wait until you move out.

shit guys, there's no reason to jump on my case. i don't know a lot about dreads. but i've heard that there are a lot of different methods and things like waxes, i'm just curious to know about them. seriously, it would be way cool if someone could relpy without being rude about it. :/

You've got some solid advice from sarah and from hellodreadhead. Nobody's on your case... yet. Having a thick skin helps if you want to rock locks.

LOL ... think of this forum as good training for what's out there in the real world when it comes to growing locks. Not everyone will agree that peeps with locks get heaviness from society in general, but considering how many do, it's safe to say that there is a relevant degree of prejudice ... so umm, yup, training ground.

PS ... maybe getting locks 'made', which I think you should know will only look irie until your first wash, would be the kind of extreme that would upset your parent / s. I'm not one to promote ‘parent pleasing', but have you reasoned that perhaps going completely 'neglect', Man that word ... anyway, would be the kind of approach that would phase your parent / s into the idea

Jah Bless!

Yea, I prefer the term 'patience.' I agree that when locks are 'made' they have that terrible habit of falling out and looking like shiet for a few months.
