My new bone and wood beads! :)
Thats bad ass, i was actually looking into something similar yesterday...and voila...shabam!
Be yourself. Don't waver in the face of confrontation or uncertainty. Have faith, and everything will work out as it should.
I don't think you have a bald spot. I had...have...had...the same issue as you. It's still there, it comes and goes. I drove my friend almost insane with the constant worry that I was going massively bald in the back. It's in fact just a strange part between sections, and I hear it will fill it eventually. My friends kept taking pictures of the back of my head when they could, and showing me...as proof I wasnt going bald. I no longer think it's a bald spot...just...the strange dance of the dreadlocks. c'est la vie.
Well, I dunno if this helps...Samson had Seven Locks....LOCKS. Yep.
Alotta people had dreads all through out written history and I'm sure even prior to. If someone wants to associate dreads with something...then it's their freedom to do so. But...I feel it to be somewhat ignorant, as when you boil it down...dreads are simply the natural way human, ALL HUMAN (not ethnically specific human) hair goes about ordering itself. Sure race has something to do with it, as different races do factually have different hair types.
Bottom line, at least for me and alotta dreadies I know in person...it's natural, and the way we and our hair was designed to take care of itself.
Also, Solomon was a glorious King in the beginning, but towards the end of his reign, he sough companionship from strange women who made his heart and mind drift away from the teachings of his ancestors and the way of God. This, the rumor is, is where the Lesser and Greater Keys of Solomon came about, as well as some other very esoteric writings.
Aaaaaanyways, I be done rambling. Takes Care! \o/
Hey...I don't use a scarf too often, but I do use these...which is kinda like a scarf, just...not.
They work really well though, and are comfie and stay in place...and theres a few different ways you can wears em.
Hopes it be some help! Takes care!
So...this whole thing started with myself getting a neat cool little something from someone...to stick in my hair, naturally. It doesn't weight too much, but more than your average bead...and it's on a particularly thin amount of hair as it's a braid, not a dread. I do small braids for sentimental beads that simply will not fit on a dreadlock.
Anyways...skittering about the internet looking for information on how strong the average human hair is, I found something pretty sweet:
Hair as a Lifesaver Human hair can actually guard against bullets and arrows. Although Kevlar is now used in protective vests, Dr. Frdric Leroy of the London Museum of Natural History claims that human hair is, pound for pound, about as strong as Kevlar. In April of 2009, a Missouri woman reported to My Fox News that her weave saved her life. After an attacker shot a would-be fatal bullet, the bullet bounced off of her fake hair, making a weave (or fake hair attached to human hair) essentially become a lifesaver.
I found this at...http://www.ehow.com/about_5312860_much-one-human-hair-hold.html
But yeah...that site has some other pretty interesting information regarding hair and such. Yall take care and all that kinda good stuff...
*sucks at ending these things*
Maybe you could weave in some extensions like some people do with their hair? How short can head hair be while still accepting extensions of some sort?
Heh, excuse me now...I'm going to laugh loudly to myself.
