My dreads have always been a "whatever" kind of thing. They are purposeful, but they are not willful. Just under a year ago I started not brushing my hair, hoping they'd just appear. It's been a very slow process, as you might be able to tell from the pics. Basically all I've done is pull my dreads apart when they've tried to join together. I have alot of loose hair and about 18 dreads of varying sizes.

Very very few people like my hair, but I'm alright with people telling me to cut my hair. People who really know me understand that I don't put up with disapprovingness for long (however oxymoronic that may be). There are probably enough dreadies in my town to count with one hand, and I haven't seen any of them. I am "that guy with dreads."

I want to keep my dreads for at least a couple more years, so they'll get to a satisfying length, but we'll see. It is hard to get a job with them in this town, which is unfortunate.

(These aren't very good pictures, but they're the best I have right now.)

That's me on the rock.

That's me spotting.

Here's one taken the beginning of January, my hair had dreads in it but mostly looked like I was a homeless man. More than I do now, at least.
