Yeay! Ok, yes, I probably should not have spent the money, but I figure the oils, butter, and stuff I just bought will last me quite a while so... should be worth it. I also bought a big box of baking soda and some apple cider vineger (how do you spell that???). My new tams came in today - I bought this gorgeous one with purple and a kind of grey marbley color, and I got one that is white, a goldish-yello and blu. And to my surprise, the person who made them added a free one to boot! A really nice tan, burgandy, and olive colored one. All wool - but they are sooo soft, they don't feel like wool! Anyway, all I need are the dreads! lol! I contacted my friend who does my hair and she sounthoded excited about the prospect - we just got to find time to get together. I've been not-combing and using Dr. B's peppermint liquid soap but no tangles yet. 'm looking a little shaggy tho - lol!So I'm still very nervous about how prospective employers are going to take my dreads. I should be into my internship about a year from now and I am hoping that they will have grown to be presentable by then. Please pl ease please tell me they will be presentable by then!!!! My hair is all different lengths right now and when I put my baby dreads in (don't worry - not using any products - just twist and rip and some beads) Oh! My gohuodness! I forgot I bought some really beautiful beads too! Anyway, once I get the dreads in - I know I will look a bit like a porcupine for a bit because my hair length - already a bit short for my taste - will shorten even more. >sigh< So I'm expecting that - which is why I'm glad my tams already came in.Told my hubby I was gonna do this and he rolled his eyes. Don't get me wrong, folks, the man is great. In fact when we met his head was shaved all around except for a hairlock on top- which had a couple of dreads in it. We've been married 10 years, and the poor boy has mellowed a bit - heehee! Oh well. In some ways I've gotten more adventurous and in some ways I've mellowed too. That is life, is it not? :)So I hope it will all work out, my only concern is - again my employability. Hopefully I won't have to shave my head again in a year.A

Just so you guys know - I'm all for supporting local artists and such and I did look on this site's links for merchandise. I couldn't figure out how to get to the people's stores tho, I just could look through the pictures posted, wasn't sure how the buying part works and all. Plus, I've got a paypal account that makes buying stuff on certain websites very easy and safe. So for all you out there selling stuff on this website, I'm dreadfully sorry - I felt a bit guilty for not buying from yous - but I do wish you all the best - if that means anything, lol! I guess I shouldn't be too upset tho - if I hadn't gon to ebay, I wouldn't have met that lovely person who handmade me three beautiful tams and am now getting to know as a person. Too cool!

I actually looked on ebay and I met this great person who makes her own handmade tams - she's very cool and her tams are really pretty. Here is the link to her store: As far as the beads, I found them on ebay also, not a great selection, but I liked the wooden and silver beads. Here is the link for that dude - he's in Australia...

I too would love to know where ya got the great tams & beads! If you're caucasian you probably will have no use for the cocoa butter at least for a few years!lol! It's really impossible to know what your reads are going to look like in a year but by then they will have matured a bit and should be past the majority of really crazy messiness(maybe) :o)

lol, I will likely eventually be able to work from home, but probably not right away. I got everything you mentioned on you super-cleaning list - Tea Tree oil and Rosemary oil - cause I got the dandruff even without the dreads - much to my dismay - and I got lavender and cocoa butter too. I found a great organic shop called Mountain Rose Herbs that deals in bulk - but I only got the butter there I got a 1lb package of butter discs. I got great price (I think) for the oils at Puritan Pride.Anyway, that's that. Although, I realized that I was at the store earlier today and forgot to buy myself a pitcher to use - lol!
