How does this girl do this?


Introduce Yourself

my advice is just practice and try not to be exact, i guarantree the more you fuss the less good it will look. hers look really piled on top and off her neck, so maybe try leaning forward to make em go tward the top of your head out of the way while you do your thing. and if her way isnt working well, try doing it in your own way, you might even come up with something cooler or more personal.

hope this helps!

I am in the process of getting dreadlocks. Why do I feel like a fake?


General Talk

ive been struggling with the same type of thing since i was born. sometimes the change can feel really weird at times. you shouldn't feel bad about being on an in between or for changing from one thing to another. i oftern get crap for being a punk rocker, and a hippy at the same time. but those are just names to categorize me from other soemthing to give it a name because it unfamiliar. embrace what you love and let urself love it. wther dreads, corporate look or anything else it doesnt need a name, except yours. like you said, "I've been really happy and comfortable with my hair this way (actually more happy than I have been in years)" just remember that. and as for if ur stressing about what to put in your hair or hold it back with, have fun with it. i feel like what you accessorize your hair with is to reflect you, but not to prove something to others, but your own enjoyment and chance to be creative. i think its awesome you made your own headband! its your hair and your choice what to do with it :)and some words of comfort, ive been through changes like this plenty of times, your not alone, and these struggles with self only end with good outcomes. if u ever need to talk, though we dont know each other, im happy to listen or give some words!

Introduce Yourself

before i bombard the poor soul who would read this, HELLO! Im Dee. im excited about my dreads and excited to be apart of this site!so i guess it been like a week now. but im basically clueless about what to do. im not sure what methods do what, and as much as i want to naturally dread my hair, my hair isnt curly at this length its just smooth and strait, with isnt even to my solders yet but it gets mad curly when its like below my shoulders and can deff dread better then i bet, but right now they wont dread on there own.so i guess a few questionswhat methods do what? what should i use?not all of my hair is dreaded, i have about 5, so what do i do about washing, bc i have the rest of my hair to worry about getting gross. i had to take a shower bc it was kinda gross but even with rubber bands on my dreads, they loosened alot. i dont use shampoo or conditioner.so what should i do about washing?can i dye dreads?un related to dreads, any way to make hair grow faster?????? i cant stand it being shortthanks everyone <3!
