Posted:Ooooo...sounds nice! I remember when I first did my dreads, I went to Ireland and had a wrap put in, I left it there for over a year and now I can still see the dent where it was tied at the root. It's well long now...that whole section is dreaded and it's the neatest dread I have. Wrapping is really good for dreading roots!! biggrin

ubblol

sweet - i was at the fire festy watching this dreaded guy attempt contact - he was good but kept getting stuck - i offerd him some friendly advice, which was:

"If you ever want to get good with the back of your neck - get a haircut"

So he didnt feel so bad i said hoodies were a problem too, then attempted to show him that hoodies were a problem as i was wearing one, sadley i pulled off what i was supposed to screw up.........

so anyway, the moral of the story - good contact staff - short hair smile

Ahhh... Mister Strugz... sure, what would life be if you didn't have friends who repeatedly took the piss out of you on a public forum?

Dull. I suspect. Uhuh.

Perhaps even quite sad. Awww.

Awwwww...totally, infact kids with dreads beat any bloke with dreads any day, they are the cutest!! My son wanted em for a while but then his dad talked him out of it, told him he only looks smart with short hair. Course, I'm bringing my son up to be happy whatever his appearance...but no, daddy had to throw that one in there. Personally I would love my son however he has his hair, so yeah...Daddy and I had words!!
