I fixed Birgitte's dreads.. yesterday & today; and now they're all done :) ...notice the red one?.. it's one of the ones I cut offof mine.. and I attached it to one of hers :) I think it looks pretty spiffy (if I may say so myself) . Dam-de-doo-dee-dee.
ALOT of my friends have dreads.. I should get them all together and photograph them all...but.. as we all know.. that'll be one of those projects I talked about.. that I just never got around to doing. ;)
Right. So yesterday we went on a schooltrip to Paris. I saw 3
dreadheads :D (all blond btw, not that that is bad but it was a
bit spooky that they were all blonde) I saw two of them at the d'Orset
museum and I spotted the third one at the entrance of La Fayette :) It
was kind of funny : me and my friends were standing next to a pilar
while he and his friends were checking out this clochard with his pets.
My friend Saartje grabbed my arm and told me that there was a boy who
had dreads too. I instantly turned my head in to the direction she was
pointing and made eye contact with our mystery dreadhead :) We just
glanced quickly at each other and turned our heads, but I don't know
what it was but we turned again and looked at each other one last time
:) It was kind of funny that we were checking out the other ones'
dreads by acting like two total goofballs (I'm sure I looked like a
chicken; they turn their heads like that too, don't they ? =) )
So ehm.....I guess that that was my first French dreadhead meets dreadhead experience :D
Okay, so maybe, technically I don't have dreads yet. I've been considering it for a long time, and have been doing my best to dig up as much information as I can on the whole dealio before I start, so I do it right.
I'm personally a fan of tight, smooth, smaller dreads. I've read that they're usually begun using anything from a 1 inch square of hair, to a 2 inch. But what if I wanted smaller, hypothetically? Say, a 1/2 inche square, or somesuch. Would there be any mechanics that would screw up that I don't know about by making it so small? Or is it just that not as many people prefer it?
Here it is...a photo of me that a dear comrade has so graciously put online. Its far from the best shot.. it was taken at close range, in a dark pub, and the angle wasn't wide enough for all my hair... (and I'm doing something bizarre with my face)
its been about 2 weeks since i've brushed my hair and ive just been using some tea tree soap to wash it.. and look:
i was tryin to go all natural.. and its workin out so far.. but my mom is gettin pissed so i guess my friend is gonna help me backcomb tomorrow. hahah ... but :( oh well hopefully i can post pics of my new dreadies tomorrow!! peace and love<3
