background: hair dye towel, photo of a guy in a dress. i kept the sides & back shaved, but my hair's so damned thick you can't even tell.
it's been a few years, & i'd recently been wanting my locks back. i was cleared by my boss to regrow them (the saga, for anyone interested: link 1, link 2, link 3) & i am back in love with my hair. i started from a mohawk this time around & i'm definitely digging on the dreadhawk.
i spent the entire weekend immediately post-permission bleaching & backcombing & waxing (knottyboy's mix is pretty helpful for the first few months, after that it isn't necessary), & having five years of experience under my belt was obviously helpful. no one else works on my hair. this set already looks better than my first set after a year - there was barely anything on the internet about starting locks when i first began in 1997.
anyhow, there are other pics of me on my site for those who want to gape.
golly, i've missed this.
