Gyva02 people with straight hair can have nice dreads too but not by simply not brushing, you gotta get them done by someone who knows what they are doing & then you gotta wax em n stuff every once in a while,



this is not correct. i have dead straight hair when not locked. i didnt go to anyone who "knew what the ywer doing" i back combed once and left them to knotty up. I have friends with dead straight hairand great dreads who didnt even back comb. Its all about patience

Am moving towards getting dreads for the craic* and experience of it. My hair is still a little too short, but this cool thread is inspiring me to tell my hair to grow faster so I can speed things along and lock my hair up like it stole something!

i miss mine! i had them over the summer, but then they fell out Posted Image my hair is too thin to hold them for very long. i've been putting in hair wraps and dreading what is underneath, so that way when i take out the hair wrap, the dread has tightened enough so it wont fall out. slow and tedious process...

i thought my parents would hate my dreads because they are uber conservative, but they love them! My dad was giving me ideas on how to wear them too! Just do it. trust me, you'll be surprised about how your parents will react. Plus, it's your hair!!!

My mom is weird about hair.. But yeah she has been more leniant since I've turned 18. But still.. She says she thinks dreadlocks are dirty, and she has a problem with dirty stuff. I don't know if they actually are dirty or not, I personally don't care.. Dreads are sweet.

Maybe I'll do it when I move out or something haha.

oooh... awesome... YAY


*edit* i realized this makes no sense. i got dreads, but my picture is from before i had them... so... there you are...

When the earth was still flat

and the clouds made of fire

and the mountains stretched up to the sky

sometimes higher

folks roamed the earth

like big rolling kegs

they had two sets of arms

they had two sets of legs

they had two faces peering out of one giant head

so they could watch all around them

as they talked while they read

and they never knew nothing of love

it was before

the origin of love
