I wanting dreads, and wanting help/advice


Introduce Yourself

They don't look like true dreads at ALL in the picture she posted in her first post, it purely looks like twists held with gel/spray. Not dreads, only twists. They almost seem TOO uniform for dreads, y'know?Spider Feet said:
Looking at her other pics I'm guessing she did a twist and rip and then left them alone, twisting with hairgel and hairspray on occasion. They aren't fully locked. She has one in the back that looks natural and one that is starting to get a little bumpy but to me they just seem like they aren't fully dreaded.

Introduce Yourself

I didn't cut them, I just brushed them out. I'd had them for a month, but they were just...it wasn't the right place and time in my life for them. I'll get them back eventually, though. I went through a small depression affter getting them out, and I long for them to be back every few weeks.I have a few things I don't spell correctly in american culture, but some that are correct in the british culture. I'll consistently spell out the words theatre, favourite, colur, etc. Alot and a lot are another example of this cultural difference. I'm not British, but the UK has alot of influence over my life, and some of my best friends live there. I WISH I were british... :(Lauren Larsen said:

I wanting dreads, and wanting help/advice


Introduce Yourself

Lynsey: after I got rid of my dreads, I was still attached. I knew they wouldn't work for me, so what I did was I went out, got some synthetic hair, and make false dreads out of them. They have a little loop on the end so that you can brain them into your real hair, and secure with a bandIf you want to learn more about it, send me a comment or PM, and I can help you out. That way, you can have some temporary dreads to see if they work for you.

Any suggestions for methods on extensions and/or volume..


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

After I brushed my real dreads out, I went and made synthetic temporary dreads that I could braid in. Damn them for being too short now!Do you think it would be a good idea to post my method up so people can give dreads a "test-run" before making the leap, or is that like cheating?

tapered vs. blunt ends on girls


General Questions

truth: I prefer tapered ends because i'm petrified of having "short" hair, and I know you lose some length when you dread. Not too much, but some, and it irks me to no end. I leave the ends as long as they can be.I had a traumatic experience as a young, chubby kid with a short haircut. I'm sure you can imagine the teasing:P Now i'm like...anti-short for a vast majority of people. I really prefer length, as it represents beauty to me.

Ahaa, it's like a sickness for me. Just a heads up, I'll put it here: If I randomly go through and comment/reply to something simply to correct something, I in -no way- mean to come across as rude: it's just part of my life, and also part of ASL culture*.It's a shame: many kids who graduated from my HS and went on to college/uni...don't know the difference between their, they're, and there. UGH!/rantsoz :3*Signs are regional across the US. the sign for "lesbian" in the east more than likely won't be the same sign in the west, etc.; as such, members of the ASL community correct/show eachother THEIR version of differing signs. It's all muddled up in correctness, and not meant to be rude, but meant to teach/learn.Sister Rags said:
Cool, Kris - I like how you told us some interesting facts about yourself in your Intro post. Welcome :) I was raised long before computers, back when grammar, punctuation and spelling (and penmanship) were valued, so I understand how you feel. Actually, it's nice to meet someone younger who values language.

tapered vs. blunt ends on girls


General Questions

I have my preference. I prefer the tapered ends. I've seen mostly guys with blunt ends, girls with tapered ends, but that again is my own experience.I wonder: Do most girls also like tapered ends? Do most guys like blunt?What do YOU like?
