OCCUPY WALL STREET *PEACEFUL REVOLUTION, HAPPENING NOW ON WALL STREET*


General Talk

My sister actually lives in the area so she is constantly calling me with updates. I think this protest is a wonderful concept but it is a bit muddled. There is no direct plan and there is no real sign of leadership. It almost looks like a rainbow gathering in the city.

Tam patterns


Dread Accessories

I have been creating a tam with the help of a youtube video. I use a 5.50mm hook and a roll of Red Heart yarn that I bought at walmart for $2.58 and it kind of looks like wool. I have been following this video:

I may start following this one

Trading Dread Beads?


Dread Accessories

I have a bag of polymer clay beads from another member. I am willing to give them away since they are too big.

Thanks everyone. I just told my sister what happened today and she pretty much sides with the guy who made that comment. She said that I should just go to a stylist. She said my grandfather and other relatives felt the same way :(. We all live in the same area and no one said boot about my hair until my sister came down to visit.

Do they need to be 'redid'?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

So today I was heading to class and I made it to the bus stop. The driver wasn't there and the bus door was closed. There were two guys outside just waiting so I went to the Dunkin Donuts. When I came out I headed towards the bus the two guys left as well. When I made it to the door the two guys were behind me. So one guy says to me

"Your dreads are very nice, when are you going to get them redone?"

I looked at him, shocked by what he just said.

"Redone, I don't." I said

"So you are just going to leave it like it is? You can't just go and get it redone so that it grows long and sexy?" The guy asks. His friend seems to not want any part of the conversation. I look at the guy who is talking and say "That is how they fall out." I got on the bus and went to my seat and did some homework.

It kills me because I started noticing some looks people give me. A lot of people that have locks in this area do get their hair tightened but its expensive and when I did my roots became a bit weak . I have only been free forming for over a month (closer to two) . Im not saddened or anything Im just shocked at what this dude said. He started out hitting on me and just ended up pissing me off. Is my hair really bad?

dreads roots tightening traction alopecia


Dread Maintenance

Ouch! I remember the days of getting my hair done by the Liberians. I had to tell them to leave the front out or braid looser because they would do it so tight you would lose your edges. My sister gets back to back weaves in her hair and she is very insecure about her edges because they are damaged. People don't realize how much damage pull marks can have.

nasty dreadlock

Oh my, dove? You were better off just using cold water. Dove is meant to distribute moisture so that you don not have to put on a lot of moisturizer post shower. But I totally understand your situation, I think a baking soda wash will be great. Also I would recommend some Dr Bronners peppermint soap and put in some drops of tea tree oils.
