holy crap dude. thats outrageous. i dont think it should be that much. maybe hes trying to scam money from you by charging you for overnight and not giving you any other option.
anyway, upon inspection of my dreads im noticing some green spots showing through which is leftover henna paste (i made it reeeeeally thick and pasty). today i henna'd my hair and all went great, no issues. im loving thefieryorangey red it has, curious to see how it oxidizes.
anyway, so now ive got some henna stuck in my dreads and i dont know what to do. my first instinct is to wash it out, which i did to some of the more bad spots by just spot washing that part of the dread. anyway, will washing my hair again after i wake up hinder the oxidizing process? knottysleeves told me that baking soda washes strip henna pretty quickly so keep in mind for your responses that i wont be using BS for a while. should i just wait out the few days and wash it again then? i really dont know what to do, its my first henna job. i dont mind waiting as long as i can still get it out and the extra henna doesnt gum up my dreads or keep releasing dye and do something bad to the hair. the henna spots seem to be in the thick mature areas from 0-4 inches of the roots. i noticed my flat dreads are usually the ones that show more green than others. i just dont want to do anything to hinder the binding or oxidizing process. does anybody have any experience in this or ideas of what to do?
the zig zags and stuff are normal, its just a sign that that areas starting to lock up, they always fix themselves if you give it time. im delighted when i find a new loop or zig zag cause i know its making progress. they dont usually go away in a month, usually 3 months or so on my head.
my main concern has been if i compress the loop against the surface of the dread instead of letting it go and suck inside the dread if im preventing that area in the dread from forming a knot and dreading solidly, and causing a sort of straight section in the core of the dread that will never knot, even if its not visible that way on the outside
i'm curious about this too. i have 5 sections that dreaded from the bottom up and sucked in the ends and created a big zig zaging section on the ends. i'm really hoping in the coming month it will fix itself but if not then i'd like to find a way to round them out so i don't have these flat paddle looking dreads right in the front. they're kind of pulling in a weird way too.
so what do you guys thing sliding beads over big loops or zig zags do?. first we have to think about the nature of a loop or zig zag. is the stage of that section of hair dreading dreads dont twist around each other, they loop, tie, and combine. when you slide a bead over a loop, be it a loose new dread, or a hard maturing dread with a loop what does that do to the loop. in the nature of loops, do they usually suck back inside a dread and compress, or do they lay down flat onto the dread and dread into the surface of the dread. ive had both happen in different dreads on my head. im just wanting to know about how a bead treats those loops. if it is supposed to suck inside of the dread naturally (say a loop formed at 10 months in), would putting a bead over it just make it dread flat against the outside of the dread and mess something up? something i got curious about when i took a bead off of a loop and found it compressed against the surace of the dread, the loop still clearly visible but 2D now as if drawn on paper. i know people say to put beads over areas like that, but what happens inside the inner workings of the loop and bead. do any problems or permanent lumps result, or is everything fine?
just another random jackal thought, wanted to get that out there and see what others think
thanks dude. are you a fellow furry?I like your desktop
