My husband just mentioned that i should dread my hair- i used to want to, but because if my job (elementary teacher in the American South), i didn't. I have a couple of questions:

Itchies? Do they happen? how do you deal? i currently wash about once a week with nature's gate shampoo and do water rinses or no-poo using baking soda once or twice a week.

am i going to look like i am having a midlife crisis? i am 36, with long blond hair and pretty normal looking, not heavy, not skinny, no tattoos, i used to have some extra piercings, but i had to loose them for the job. i don't care too much about what others think, but i also don't want to be someone who should never have done this, like the old ladies in short shorts. here's a recent pic of me after i i cut my hair: Image



hey jildez :) i'm 33 and i think i'm happenin enough to rock dreads! and your hair looks lovely and thick, it would probably dread well... but i reckon if you are gonna dread your hair at that length, to actually put dreads in (as opposed to letting it happen naturally) coz you run the risk with not-so-curly hair of ending up with those big flat homeless style dreads :/

oh and i cut my first lot of dreads off at 20cm and brushed them out and i had absolutely beautiful glossy undamaged hair after the frizz calmed down!

Thanks dahlia! Haha, homeless dreads, i have to admit,my hair is probably twice as wavy as this pic, but i'd still get the 'homeless dreads'. Last night i was looking at the dreads that Autumn Leaves suggested and it looks like it might be a nice compromise for me- i will probably be going back to school and teaching (university- much more flexible) in the fall, and it would be a good look. I am only finding links about doing it for afro-textured hair though, so i am going to keep looking. I'm visiting my mother in law right now and she smokes (not in the house while we are here, thank goodness) so i have been washing my hair daily, i feel like i am coated in ash.

I'm second on the left and this is many years ago ('98 -pot noodles were still believed to be vegan...)
this is probably the third time i had dreads after many hairdos/don'ts
i still miss them/doing stuff to my hair but due to having a 'professional' job i just couldn't get away with anything too far away from the norm.
booo.

Gosh, I miss the 90's. SOS, why'd you cut your dreads off? I love that look on you.

I am so jealous of all of you that were teens/adults in the 90s. Such a good decade.

I hate U2 and Counting Crows! I was more into the Cows, Melvins, Butthole Surfers, Ed Hall, Unsane, Jesus Lizard, etc....

No decade is ever a good decade to be a teenager.

I found the 80s a good time to be a teenager as everyone looked ridiculous, not just me.

Ever since you posted that pic on the other topic, I've been convinced that you're secretly Bono.

See, that's how I feel about the 90's! And I love your dreads in that pic by the way. I would have wanted to hang out with you if I saw you back then, but I was too dorky and socially awkward.

I love dreads and wish I had the patience for them. Everyone looks great, I must say.

Back when I was 15, going to homecoming:

My date didn't have dreads, he just had glue in his hair.

I had some for about 48 hours. My hair was just too thin... I couldn't make lots of big ones. I had 15 tiny ones. I looked like ICP.

Did you add the shea butter while your hair was still wet? I tried using shea once, but it left them looking ashy for some reason.
