Finally updating... [March 19th, 2016 @6:31 PM]

Hi all! Well I'm back and have lots of pix. I haven't posted in a very long time so if this post doesn't work correctly with images and cuts, please bare with me while I fix/update it. Seems like they've made things a lot easier now though. Let's give it a shot...

New England Suggestions? [March 7th, 2016 @1:14 PM]

[ mood | curious ]

Hi all! Although I haven't been posting on here or using LJ in literally YEARS, I do want to first say that I am well aware of the rules of this community. Please fully read my post before telling me to "check the memories." ':o) If this post still isn't allowed, let me know and I'll delete it.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of individuals/places in MA (or the surrounding states) who does dreads. I know there is an amazing list in this community, which was so helpful years ago when I started mine. I have a friend who contacted several local people on the list and no one has responded to her. I'm wondering if maybe the list has been a bit forgotten about and isn't up-to-date in terms of contact info. If anyone has suggestions in the New England area, I'd really appreciate it. And again, if this post is an issue just let me know and I'll delete it, however, I'm hoping it's ok under the circumstances.

Maybe this will also get my butt in gear to post some updated pix soon! Now that I think of it, it's kind of crazy to think about how much my dreads have changed since I got them! ':oP

Saw this one in some old pictures and thought "that's perfect for our quiet little gudu community".

Apologies in advance if there is any sizing issue,  I'm testing out the LJ app.

Hi all,

I don't want this community to die, so let me post this picture. I guess Halloween will be fun.

Hope you like it.

Raging Roots [July 7th, 2015 @11:51 PM]

Hi y'all!

It is summer in CO, so of course my bi-annual itch to shave my head is occurring. I generally relieve this urge by shaving my mohawk sides. But, this set of dreads is the longest hair I've ever had; just past my shoulders, and it is driving me absolutely freaking bonkers. It's getting trapped under myself while I sleep and causing me to freak, if I've forgotten to flip it up on my pillow and off the bed. How do you sleep with your hair?
I have lots of loose guys. My fibromyalgia prevents me from palmrolling as often as I'd like to. That and the weather has me contemplating an entire shave, but I think it's got more to do with a general displeasure overall with life at the moment, if we're being quite honest. So, instead, I've googled a soak recipe and have decided that it is time for my 1.5+ year old dreads to be cleansed... Maybe that will help get rid of some icky weight, and force me to take a half hour to do nothing but pamper myself and cleanse my head. In so googling for this recipe, I found a New England (where I am from) salon that maintains dreads. I have never visited them, do not know them, but was quite impressed when I saw the FAQs, the education page, etc. why? Because it reminded me of the comprehensive Memories LishD maintained back when I was in high school! When I made the commitment to myself that dreads were going to be a part of my future. So! I would like to pass along this website I stumbled upon.
