Heii, this is my first post.
Ive wanted dreads for at least 4 years.
But my dad did NOT let that happen. I wasnt sure if it was him being embarassed of me already (Black sheep of the family sorta thing).
But he later went on to tell me he was worried about me getting a job with them. It was sweet that he was worried.
But i just didnt feel right. Some people say theyre born blondes. Well i was born to have dreads. It just feels right. Im sure some of you know what i mean.
Anyways, i plan on going over to my grandmas and having my mom help me.
As of right now. I have Jet black hair, that changes alot in length.
The back of my hair is probably at least 20 inches. It reaches the back of my bra strap . In the front its probably shoulder length at the shortest.
I have VERY fine, straight Scandinavian hair. Which worried me before, but after really creeping on this forum, i felt alot better.
The only thing im semi worried about is my hair being black.
I love my black hair, but im kinda bummed, thinking that you wont even be able to tell i have dreads with such dark hair.
And im kinda going back and forth on bleaching them after they mature. But i LOVE black dreads on all the people ive seen them on (Wednesday 13 being my favorite)
Oh well, ill worry about it when the time comes.
I plan on doing the Twist and Rip, and i feel confident about this method for my hair.
If i wear my hair down for two days without brushing at all . I can actually feel a dread start (obviously not a mature dread, but you know what i mean)
My hair LOVES to knot up. So im excited.
Ill be washing my hair one a week, maybe more if i notice it get icky.
as of right now i wash my hair once a week if not even longer (im a little grunger lol)
My hair type gets oily semi fast, by the third day its creepy.
But i started to wear my hair up for weeks on end without ever touching it.
Which i think is good for having dreads, because obviously im not to interactive with my hair.
Will wearing my new dreads up at school (8 hours) be bad? id take them down soon as i get home, and i wouldn't wear them up every day.
Anyways , im excited as you can tell!
A little bit about myself before i go (:
Obviously a girl.
I live in the frozen state of Minnesota !
I have six cats, a dog , rabbit and three snakes (Purple Albino Reticulated Python, BCI Red Tail and a Jet Black Blood Python (Short Tail)
I LOVE Metal, 80s metal, Black metal. Doom and Stoner Metal are my FAVORITE though.
Sorry for the long post!!!
Here is a picture of me! I hope i end up looking decent with them. What do you think?
