Here I am pre-dreads:
This was my 20th birthday party, about a week before I did my hair. At this point I probably had no idea I would have dreads so soon or even ever. I just came back from class one day and decided to dread my hair. It was pretty random.
This is the earliest picture I could find of my dreads. This was april. I still had a lot of rubber bands in the roots at this point.
I had surgery in May and didn't touch my dreads for a long time. I think that's why they were so loose here.
They were also very fluffy. The weather change from Mass. to San Francisco did not make them happy.
Here I am drinking wine again. We did that a lot last summer.
They tightened up quite quickly when I started spraying them with salt water and lemon juice and putting on occasional wax.
This was the day I got my tongue pierced. That's what this picture really shows off, but you can see my hair a little bit.
This was the day I left SF for school. That's my best friend and summer house mate.
I look weird in this picture. But you can see my hair well.
Here I am as the pope. I love Halloween.
There I am drunk again.
A picture from my self portrait photo series.
Just washed. The last time I washed them, in fact.
Somehow some of them ended up blue.
