Check out my band!


General Talk

I like it, and it definitely doesn't sound like hell :)

I would just suggest that you guys incorporate more variety in your playing and your writing. especially with vocal patterns. Even subtle changes in beats, and riffs, can go a really REALLY long way when your trying to fit more sound into your songs. There's nothing wrong with repetition, but if the audience can guess your every move before you make it they're going to lose interest. The more technique and skill you utilize the better. The deeper your bag of tricks goes the more people will like you.

what kind(s) of music do you listen to?

A few questions before I dread


General Questions

First of which would be what method would be the best? I am in middle school so I don't know if the natural method would work and I don't fully understand it. Do you just not use shampoo in your hair or do I have to avoid washing it all together?

Natural dreads tend to look very messy before they start to look awesome. If you want to avoid that go for TnR.

You need to wash your hair other wise its going to smell funny. You'll need to find some dread soap.

Next my hair is straight, thick, and needs to be brushed a few times a day or it gets tangly and knotty. Other than being straight is that ideal for dreads?

Yes

Finally, my hair is a little shorter in the back (around 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 inches). Is that long enough to start or should I wait before I begin my dread journey?

Unless you plan on going the natural route, your probably going to want at least 5-6 inches to play with.

i do have patience just looking at everyone elses pics looks like im way behind for having them for 10 months.
think about it this way...If you cut your hair now you'll be even farther behind. like miles behind. Dreads are a "3 steps forward, 2 steps back" process. If you cut them now you'll be taking like a billion steps backwards. Hang in there bro.

Finally Have an Appointment with a Stylist


Introduce Yourself

My advise would be to do it yourself. When I backcombed my hair it was about 7 inches long, it took over 16 hours. A stylist is not going to have the time or patience to do it right. When done too fast and too loose you get a lot of pain, a lot of lost hair, and the baby-dreads will usually completely unravel on you. Even if the stylist is willing to spend the love and time needed, It aint gonna be cheap boyoMost stylist use wax because a shabby backcombing job wont stay together without it. If you need wax to keep baby dreads together, then you were backcombed improperly.Do it yourself. Only you know how tough to go without hurting yourself and only you will have the patience to do it right. Buy a metal flea comb, have a buddy help you section it, and go to town. don't use wax, it is the most unnecessary and hassle filled dread product out there. Unless you want to live with waxy/sticky feeling, and looking, dreads; dreads that you have to spend hours and hours melting old wax out of every month; dreads that dont even lock up as fast as waxless dreads; dont use it.

interlocking dreadlocks causes dreads to fall off


Dreading Methods

It's amazing to me that people still do this. I mean I understand the wax debate, and the crocheting debate, and all the other debates...but this is just common knowledge. I'm pretty sure even Knottyboy and DHHQ tell you not to pull this move.

awesome. If thats the way you want them to look your gonna have a smooth ride. Most people want "perfect" smooth and frizzless dreads, "pretty boy" dreadlocks ya know? You can really do em anyway you want, just dont use wax bro. If your patient and without vanity you can take the natural route. Or if thats not for you, you can Twist N' Rip (this sounds waaaay worse than it actual is) or you can backcomb.I did my first set by backcombing, and thats the way I'm doing my second set too. Backcombing can be painful when someone else does it so i suggest you do it yourself. backcombing just takes time and patience, if you try to rush through it your gonna rip your hair out and end up with a bad backcombing job.dont go to a salon. They wont take the time to do your hair properly. It took me over 10 hours, do you think they'll spend 10 hours on anyone? and with backcombing or TnR you can section the hair before you "dread" it, so you can control where your hair will part.

What's your all time favorite song or songs to sing in the shower?


General Questions

I'll either be belting "too much heaven on their minds" or any number of Disney songs. most likely "be prepared" from The Lion King or "stand out" from A Goofy Movie.
