I've been growing my dreads out since July 29th, 2008, and they're definitely getting there. Currently I'm a sophomore student at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia with a concentration on Painting and Sculpture, and the hopes of studying in Rome my entire Junior semester and becoming a working artist.
Painting and the world of sculpture are my passion, as well as music and traveling. Combining these are the best, and you can find me at a lot of festivals during the summer time!
How long have you been dreading?
Since July 29th, 2008
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Back comb method. Just section off, and tease and pull and tease.
To be honest, I don't really keep up with maintenance. Part of the fun for me is to let them go and do what they have to do! When I started, I'd used a LITTLE bit of wax (like, size of an M&M style) from dreadheadhq.com -- THAT SITE IS AWESOME!
I use all natural shampoos with no residue or conditioning. Dr. Bronners, any tea tree or patchouli oils,(ask if you'd like specifics- i've used it all, it seems), and body shop brands.
i sent ya vids but theres tons of links i can send too theres alot of psudo gatherings that are just fests but only real gatherings are actual gatherings and they are everywhere in the world..literaly..everywhere well not sure if iraq or iran has had 1 yet but almost everywhere else they asre nothing like a fest nothing like you ever experienced
