Today my mom mentioned she was watching something on TV about dreadlocks, and a black woman, I guess who works in a salon or something, actually said she refuses to dread a white person's hair. I thought that was interesting....

i forgot to post this. but last saterday night while working in the haunted forrest one of our customers was the only other white person iv seen in my town with dreadlocks. hehe it made me smile, though you couldnt tell underneath my freaking deeky skeleton mask. i wonder if she could tell it was me (We meet while i was applying to her place of employment) i mean i did have my dreads sticking out...
Plead the FIF!

so i dyed my hair red.
after i bleached them, of course.

and it turned my dreads clown orange.

it's not cool at all. my hair feels fried! and it's brittle too.

what should i use to fix it. i'm conditioning it everyday. but i'm scared to weight it down with too many products.

how long can i wait before i can try and fix them by dying them dark brown? a few days, a week, a few weeks?

it's less brilliant than it was the first day but it's still hideous...

HELP!

aaaah, the joy of growth

So i was lookin at some old pics of me last night, and i got really excited cuz i noticed that my dreads had grown about 4 inches in the past 9 months....woo, they are on their way. Just wanted to let you all know. It's really a different thing to watch your dreads grow than just regular hair, cuz you have a certain connection with your dreads, at least i do. I mean each dread is unique and they all grow differenly, like different personalities all bunched together on one head. I love them so much, they are great and beautiful!
