Gay Marriage - love is love..let them live their lives the way they want to they love eachother , not yours or my choice.
War in Iraq - usless and a waste of time.

honey if you only have two dreads matting together you are lucky.

I had to deal with my dreads being totally matted together for a good six months before they looked decent or unmatted.

keep cutting/pulling them apart. use rubber bands as far close to the roots as you can get them, it really helps them tighten up. that's what finally did it for me.

What he said. also... when you make them the angle you hold the dread at is where they stand at first. when i got done people called me coolio... well they will lay down at some point just hang in there and let them come. it takes time.
