i've been watching this special on bravo called reggae: the music of jamaica and it's really very awesome. just the social history of jamaica and the music that's come out of the slums there. it's really a good special and i reccomend you all see it. plus there's so many awesome dreads to see!

me and bob marley..birthday buddies

so tomorrow is my birthday and I want dreads, thats my gift to me. My parents are strict ethiopian muslims..who aren't really happy about dreads..they know the whole rasta scene in ethiopia..and they think thats why i am doing it. its sad really..i'm going to turn 20..and i still care what they think, but hey they are also paying my tution

i cut my dreads shorter!

i cut about 2 inches off a few weeks ago, and then cut another inch or so off today. i wanted to do it in baby steps so that it wouldnt be too drastic. there's nothing worse than a drastic haircut that you dont like!! so i figured it'd be safe to do a little at a time and i'd stop when i was happy with the length.

im so happy i did it. my hair is like, 100 times lighter and it feels great. i can put them in a ponytail now without getting a headache!

my dreads loook so shitty when i wear them down it feels, i duno if i should just stick it out, i was wondering, is it better to wear them down instead of putting them up? i mean if you wear them down for long enough will they form around your head better and begin to look better down? sory if this was a confusing question

i have had my dreads for two weeks now and i love them! (i made them myself.) i washed them once so far and after i did they tightened a lot and i noticed they curled a bit (my hair is naturally wavy) and changed in texture. will they straighten out again? what happened to you others out there? what else can i expect? i'm curious...

dear readers,

i have had my dreads for 2 half years now. i did them naturally, and as you can see from the pics they are a mess. My roots wont stay knotted, i tried everything. even threading them only helped for a short time. My hair grows really fast so i think my roots wont stay knotted cause they dont have time to if my hair grows fast...right?  recently i tried beeswax to see if that would help. eh it helped the dreads a bit, but not my roots, and i also used sea salt, helped my dreads alot, but not my roots.  Im starting to hate my dreads, i think they look horrible. if you want to leave any tips or comments (dont have to be positive comments, cause i know they are uckie) then its more then welcome. I could use all the help i can get. ok thanks.

Holes, holes, everywhere holes!
My dreads are randomly getting gaps in the middle of them!
it's so weird, because near the root, maybe 2 or 3 inches away, gaps just start to form! i've had les dreads for....hm. a bit over 2 months? and i've just noticed this happening lately.

make them go away *tear* i'm so sad that my dreads don't like me and want to go away :(
