Hello everybody! I have hair below my shoulders that I've been growing out with the intent of getting dreads. I'm going to have a friend backcomb them for me in about a week, and I have a few questions. I've waited for summer vacation to begin before getting them done, and now it's time. I only have two months to get them looking presentable. As much as I hate to admit it, I am the man's bitch, and my high school band director will freak if they look like crap for a year. We are a very respected organization, and I have already pushed her limits with my hair as it is. Is there any way I can make them look nice? I have nothing but free time that I'm willing to spend on them. Secondly, where can I find Dr. Bronners soap? I can't buy it from the website and no local chains sell it. I had a whole list of questions in my head right before I sat down to type... Oh well... Pictures to come, both before and after.
