THX Wallaby. As I said I have trouble with the crocheting but I roll them much instead, and my kind friends =4 girls agreed to give a hand so I hope it will be neater by the end of the weekend. I start to feel them greasy after 14 ays of not washing them, so I may wash it next week.
I tryed alo gel, but it did not help with the frizziness, otherwise it's a great product I'll use it later as a conditioner. Do you think the plant would help like a tightening gel, or it's just not working for me. I have thick hair, and I never had much luck w/ wax or gel when I had normal hair. (I didn't use anything on my hair in 6 month just residue free soap and lemon juice.).

i LOVE the way dr bronners castile liquid soap smells after i wash my hair with it use it to wash my laundry clean the dishes and the countertops as well.. the bronners dries my hair out a bit but it feels squicky clean i got mine through amazon.com.

I "get it" that some people's hair doesn't knot. 

My husband is like that.  He's got shoulder-length hair and right out of the shower, he can run his fingers through it.  He has never used conditioner and doesn't "get" what it is for.  If he doesn't comb or brush his hair even for a day or two, it makes no difference.  I can't imagine how hard it would be to dread his hair, it'd probably take years to knot up properly.

Whereas... I can shower, condition, brush my hair out, then get the final knots the brush doesn't reach with a pick, and it only remains knot-free for about 10 minutes.

I'm currently in the "floating the idea" stage about dreads.

oh and ps, i have seriously freaked out a couple of my arachnophobic friends by waving my hair at them.

Hahaha I'm a total arachnophobe and when my dreads were new, short and sticky-uppy I freaked myself out Grin

I have the internet again, so I was finally able to read the last 20 pages of this thread...and I'm all up to date now Smiley I loved loved loved looking at all the pics in this thread and I think it's time we each do some dread photo updates! I'm clueless about posting pics so these may be huge, teeny, who knows. Sorry  Wink

... So my boy decided that he'd like to try dreads.
At first, I wasn't all that enthusiastic because he's bleached and dyed his hair so much that it's hard for me to get a mental image of what I think his hair really looks like. But since then, he's gone back to his natural hair colour and I magically discovered this thread.
We both think that I'm a little bit more gung-ho than he is about it now. He's still iffy about having them since I won't be able to play with his hair the same way, and he's looking for a part-time job. So I nudged him towards a solution: I'll make and put in synthetic dreads to give them a sort of a "trial run".
It's so exciting! We're planning on visiting a friend of his right after so that I can see the look on her face... She thinks dreads are ugly and disgusting... she's gonna have kittens! Grin
