TREATMENT FOR HEAD LICE?
henna can work. it suffocated them. but i recently read about a new 'super lice' that has become resistant to traditional treatments. not sure if that applies to henna and alcohol though.
yeah other people saying "dreads" in reference to me made me realize how much its changed!!

Same here, knotlady! I always kept my hair in a ponytail before and I enjoy my hair so much more now. I'm at a lil over 15 months and it has been slow going, but in the last few months I've been getting more people actually calling them dreads and complimenting them. So fun!
yeah i remember getting super excited about new knots. i still do i still have new hair and the hair by my ears isnt dreaded as much. whats also super fun is watching how that little knot makes many more knots. i would wake up and feel the sections every day to see what was new. i still have new things. its a constantly changing hair style!

I haven't reached my first dread but i got my first knot today and was super excited. i sent pics to all my friends and they all thank I'm nuts now but it was a awesome thing!!!
it is fabulous isnt it :D? all i did with my hair before dreads was put it up in a ponytail or bun. thats part of the reason i wanted dreads. i knew that there would be more styling options i would be happier with. its funny now that i mention it, because i feel i neglected my hair then and im taking care of it and appreciating it more now.

That fabulous day occurred at around the three-month mark for me. Nobody had ever commented on the many changes happening atop my head, and then one day I received three compliments while at work! Eh, but to be fair, my hair was straight, dyed red, and styled ever-so-meticulously on a daily basis before I started neglecting...the difference was blatantly obvious, haha.
so was there a particular day for any of you where you looked in the mirror at your hair and said "holy crap those are dreads". it happened to me about a month ago. people had been commenting on my dreads and i looked in the mirror at each of them in the mirror individually and was taken aback almost. they really look like dreads now! the paddles have rounded out, the ends have either blunted or rounded or are nice and wispy and its all so dreadlike now. my first mature dread i had has now when from about 1/2 in diameter to 1 inch or a little less in diameter. and its really cool. i was just wondering if anyone else had that point of realization...
lol. ive always wanted to visit Cali. my cousins live in Orange County and Santa Barbara...they said if i ever went to San Fran i probably wouldnt come back to GA lol
I'm never bragging about San Diego, once I did the weather went away and brought some cloudy raining yuck
LUCKY!! im hoping to make it to Tybee this year. i used to go to the beach with my folks every year but havent been able to go in a few years. i bet my dreads would love it!!

I'm in GA too! I either put mine up or just wear less clothes to make up for having them down. We are about 1.5 hours from the beach and we go all the time!
i wish we lived closer to the beach. closest one is 2 hours, but thats really not that far. cant wait to go to the beach!!
SoCal isn't bad at all, chilling at 75 nice breeze, why not go to the beach with the kids tomorrow... why cause we can:) Can't wait to move back to Japan for some humidity!
awesome. i feel you, the beach is the best. and that sounds like some crazy pollution. i have heard its bad in the cities. apparently in china the air is almost deadly in some places. i saw a picture and was in shock.
We're headed to Cape Cod MA Pretty excited! Miss having a beach you can actually swim in! I live on a little island so we are surrounded by water but obviously way to cold to get in lol. I grew up in Tennessee so I hear ya about the humidity. At this point I could care less hahaha bring on the heat! I have family in Fresno :/ the air there is sooo gross! Me and my son both got sick instantly! Was crazy.
