My name is Robert, I am 20 and I live in corpus Christi Texas ( the tip of Texas that goes in the gulf of Mexico). I have used the site quite a lot but decided to wait till I got my second set going. I had started dreading awhile back but started over bcuz I didnt like the way it was started (wax). I just started and finished my second set today(9-03-11) THANKS to the help of my mom.
I have wanted dreads for a really long time bcuz my hair is sooo ridiculous to do anything else. I have like 10 cow licks on random spots that make my hair go all crazy. Plus i was a scar magnet as a kid so short hair is a no go. I love not doing anything with my hair besides cleaning it bcuz i am uber lazy. I love the freeness and wild and crazyness.
I decided to go the waxless route this time and just try back combing and RnT on some. I am still learning as I go so im excited to see what will happen with my new dreads. I am open to any ideas on how to maintain and clean them. I know the basics but can never learn enough.... Although im not a fan of the picks here is a pic of how they look after a couple hours.
love the site, SE you saved my first set.
