Oh my, america sounds like a very interesting place to live with all these different sorts of people in there own areas not really liking anything different! It totally amazes me having never met a red neck that anyonewouldact like this!I live in a town onthe south coast of england where there is a massive mix of people from all over europe and the world and also a unversity townand when you go out and about you see all sorts of styles of hair and dress. After reading what you have written and also others about some places in america i am feeling very lucky now to live in such a diverse place. Of course there are still some opinionated people but you dont hear much as there is such a big range here now that most people have learned to accept the diversity. Im not sure what i would do if i got an out right bad comment off a stranger, if i was in a bad mood i mightbe tempted to retort something rude back to be honest, probably not the best thing to do i know, if i was in a good mood id probably say thanks mate and carry on my way. Just keep being yourself, these peolpe sound insane!
well has been just over five weeks now, i got two dreads underneath that started at 3 and 4 weeks, and i got 2 starting atthe back which i cant pick up yet, really hard to photograph my own head! will get someone to do it next time. the pictures dont really do it justice. Got some comments off a friend of mine yesterday about how awfull it looks on the top where theres loads of short bits sticking up and that how i need to comb it, so taking this to show that my hair is going in the right direction! I love it, the 2 new ones at the back started when i slept the night of my birthday so they are my birthday ones. The only trouble im having is getting dry stuff building up on my head, think its salt or bs that doesnt wash out properly, is making first few inches of my hair abit stiff. I got it all out a couple of weeks ago with some Abeni dread shampoo which was nice to have clean head but my hair wasnt so separated and wavey after so didnt like it so much although very clean and the second dread came after i had used it so dont think it bad for hair dreading, i just like the wavey separatedway it looks with the bs.So am gonna try dipping the my hair in salt water not getting it on my head and see if the salt is the problem.
hi i get the stuff on my head as well from the salt, weli thought it was the salt at first, then i thought it was the bs not being able to get it out properly, but maybe is the salt. So now u use less salt do you get the white stuff at all?? on my head its like a dry layer and each time i wash the top few inches of my hair get stiffer. Acouple ofweeks ago i useded someAbenidreadlock shampoo to wash it off as was annoying me, it all came off nice and i had a nice clean head but my hair wasnt so separated andwavey like its been just using the bs,and took a couple of washes after to go back to the same separation. Is just over 5 weeks since stopped touching my hair, will post some pictures on my time line later so u can have a look!
