Knotty Roots Unite!

Name - Kat

Age - 21

Hair Status - Dreaded YESTERDAY!!

How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads? I've had them less than 24 hours and have wanted then for a coupld of years.

Opinions on:
Legalization of Marijuana - I think they should just legalize it already.

Gay Marriage - Should be legal. Love isn't just between heteroseual couples. I think that it's really kind of ridiculous that it's still not legal. Bah.

War in Iraq - Ridiculous. I think it's a waste of time and that we're only there because of the fact that we just want their oil.

Best Dread wax - Well, I've only used Knotty Boy. I plan to stick with it. I love it.

[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]

Name - Inky.
Age - 20.

Hair Status?
Short. Black-ish. Resembling a badly made mullet. Mega wavy. In the process of growing out, and the back of my head seems to grow twice as fast!

How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads?
Too long. I developed an interest around 9, was craving them by 12 and my mother never consented, thought they were dirty and so I never got around to getting them. I tried to supplement the craving with dye, crazy cuts/styles/accessories... I even did the synthetic dreads - which made me positive that I had to have read ones. And soon. So I'm in the process of growing a few inches before I get knotty (I plan to have the dreads between chin and shoulder length when they're done). I'm impatient! But my boyfriend is hiding the scissors from me, so I don't do anything drastic!

Opinions on:

Legalization of Marijuana - I think it should be totally legal, with laws such as alcohol (no driving whilst intoxicated, legal purchasing age, etc). I personally don't use it (me and the ol' reefer don't mix well), but know many functional people who use it in moderation and carry out life.

Gay Marriage - Should also be legal. Love has no gender, and I don't think the government should be able to dictate what people can and cannot do in their own personal life.

War in Iraq - Sigh... well, I'm from Australia, and even though we have troops over there at the moment, I try not to get involved with this much at all anymore. I think Bush is absolutely embarrassing his country, and the whole situation is sad. Mind you, our Prime Minister is embarrassing the hell out of us by following Mr. Bush around like a lost pup, giving whatever is asked for.

Best Dread wax - I haven't started my dreads yet, but I plan to start them with KnottyBoy wax. I don't plan on waxing them more than I have to, but just to get them going.

Name - Dawn
Age - 29
Hair Status - shorter "dreads" that started on their own
How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads? - i've been thinking about getting them for a while. then one day i noticed a knot in my hair that just wouldn't go away, no matter how much i brushed it out. finally, i stopped trying to force it and let my hair do its thing. now it's been about 8 - 10 months and my hair is still weaving itself into dreads. some have a pretty good base and there are even a couple starting out. i don't use any products and was my hair with either an all-natural, organic shampoo or dr. bronner's.
Opinions on:
Legalization of Marijuana - the government has no business legislating the private lives of its country's citizens (plus it's one of my favourite causes to donate to... go mpp! go norml!
Gay Marriage - the government has no business legislating the private lives of its country's citizens
War in Iraq - fucked up, a shamble of lies
Best Dread wax - no clue

[Current Location |At Home]

Name - Coos(je)
Age - 17 (June 25th)
Hair Status - 9 months of happy nappyness
How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads? Well, 9 months ago I finally took the step. The ultimate step after 8 years of wanting my locks so badly. After learning about them for the last 4 years (which were totally dread-obsessed) I said fuck you to the rest of the world and did it. and i'm happy.
Opinions on:
Legalization of Marijuana - Hey, I live in Holland. i don't have to worry about such things :D
Gay Marriage - i thin I'm one of the most homo-loving hetero-sexuals you'll ever meet
War in Iraq - Pointless... Full of shame. but hey, that's Georgy W. Bush.
Best Dread wax - fuck wax. I don't use that stuff. It'll only glue your hair together, so it won't get tighter and it won't make your dreads wrap up nicely and firm... So no wax for me!

Knotty Roots Unite!

Name - Shylicia or shy
Age - 19 (March 23)
Hair Status - 2 week old dreads
How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads?
I have had them for two weeks. i had wanted them for 4 years. I got them mainly to help my hair grow back, it was down my back and then due to something it started to fall out. I am extremely happy with them

Opinions on:
Legalization of Marijuana - I believe that it should be legal. I mean come on drunk driving has killed more people.
Gay Marriage - I have to say I am for it. I believe that whatever you do in your bedroom is your business and that love is love. And you guys are welcome to come when I get married.
War in Iraq - Why are we in there? I think we need to come back to America and kick Bush out. Seriously! He is the reason why my cousins and uncles havent come back and why me and my cousins wont join the army.
Best Dread wax - I use the Knotty boy wax from the website. i havent tried anything else yet, dont think i want to

here are some pictures hope you guys like

Knotty Roots Unite!

[Current Mood |uncomfortableuncomfortable]

Name - Kamika
Age - 21
Hair Status - Cut all of my hair off about 5 months ago and it's been twisted for 3 months... My hair dresser who is a dread and Jamaican told me that my hair is growing fast and that I have the perfect hair to lock (meaning that I have some nappy hair)
How long have you had dreads or how long have you wanted dreads? Wanted for a year but I was scared to cut all of my hair... It wasn't that long but it was enough for a pony tail. I've had them for 3 months.
Opinions on:
Legalization of Marijuana - Well I don't think that anyone wants weed to be legalized... Because then it would be taxed. In Florida the sales tax is 6% so a nickel bag would be $5.30 and that's not cool. No one's going to carry change and no one's going to break a $1.00 for $.30.
Gay Marriage - I'm a Christian but if people are going to get married to someone of the same sex "LET THEM BE" it is their own business. I mean they love like heterosexuals love and they can't stop being attractive to something EVEN if it is against a religion or someone else's belief... Even if they say that they've changed they are probably doing it on the "Down Low".
War in Iraq - I support the troops but not the war.
Best Dread wax - I don't know my hair dresser does my hair and I don't have to buy it...

This is me and my beautiful hair... It's a little longer now...
