i say just buzz em off. i know a girl who did that and her short hair looked really good on her. then you can experiment with all sorts of styles as your hair is growing back out.

I would use the conditioner and try to get it out.. then if that fails and you still have them then I would cut it off.

I personaly think that long hair looks the best and most flatering for most people. But then some people really rock short hair.

Heh...not really...at all. But what do I know?  Wink

At any rate, peacesign, after you manage to comb out your locks, you're going to end up with super fuzzy hair of the unhealthy weak variety (with a ton of little flyaways). If you've had dreads, you can probably rock the shocking hairstyle that is a buzzed head.

I'd say cut it short- theres probably a couple of inches or more of hair thats not dreaded on top so you don't have to be completely bald. I wouldn't try to comb them out though- my hair dreads up really easily from bleaching it so much and it takes FOREVER and is really painful to get them out.

You could probably rock some really cute short hair.

 I must say they are cute on you. Not everyone can sport them and look good with them...I am sorry to say but your best bet is to go to an ethnic barber...if they cant get them out at least they can get the bast a lottle longet and you will have some cute longer buzz cut...My friends had them when we were young in Seattle adn this is what they did...I will never forget that as long as I live.....It was really odd to see my friends have no neck pain from all the locks on the head.....BEST OF LUCK!!


I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy
