heya everyone :)
Hiii I'm Helena, but I prefer being called Helly.
I'm from the UK...where it seems to be pretty grey right now.
Hope everyone is well
So, I found this site last night. It's so good to read pro dread comments. It's like I can feel the love pouring out. hehe
I've always been fascinated by dreads. I remember telling my dad when I was much younger, that one day I would have dreads. He's a little closed minded and made some comment about how they don't suit 'white' people.. -.- A couple of years ago I put in a few dreads using the twist and rip method..but my friends at the time weren't into dreads.
A few months ago I put in a set of woolen dreads...I kept them in for a while and my hair started to dreadnaturally at the roots :D I've since taken the wool out and my friend dreaded the rest of my hair using a crochet hook.
Anyway, here I am now, however may years and months later, with most of my hair in dreads.. I'm still contemplating on wether I should dread my fringe or not..
My dreads are about a month or so old right now, I have some funky lumps and bumps in some parts.
The main issue for me at the moment is, that I've got a bit of growth at the roots now...is there anything I can do to help dread it up more? I wash my hair about once a week with diluted shampoo...
Also, are there any recommendations on certain shampoos to use for washing le dreadies?
Oh, yeah..what's the deal with dying them? I tried to dye them a few weeks ago but it didn't really work :/
Anyway, hope everyone's groovy xx
The first photo is what the dreads looked like a day or so after they were done.
The second one is what they look like a month-ish on.
hope you can tell the difference.. apologies for the bad camera/ lighting. xx
