i've been in london for a week and since i've been here i've had about 10 people come up to me feeling up my dreads and asking about them. i swear one of the great things about dreads is the ability to attract awesomely nice people.

box braiding? qu'est-ce que c'est?

at work the other day, a man comes up to the counter and asks to touch my dreads. kind of odd, but i let him anyway, and we talked a little about my methods and stuff.. and then he tells me he used to have dreads and i'm think "haha. yeah. like for 2 weeks" because this guys looks like a high maintenance fellow, one that carries a mirror in his pocket. but he had a picture in his wallet, of him with SUPER long dreads. we're talking, cottonmouthdn length dreads! and really nice and uniform, thin, but nice. he said they were six years old, but that he had done them by box braiding?

what is that? he tried to explain that it was like, braiding, then making a knot, like how you tie a shoe, and then braiding another few inches, and then tying them again...? apparently it's a series of braids and ties, working down the length of the hair. he said it's a fairly popular method.. but i had never heard of it.

does anyone know what this guy was talking about?

Hello People...

So I drank and dyed my hair at the same time last night. Ah yes....good time...I unfortunatly didnt have the time to do a different color because I'd have to bleach then wash then wait to dry then dye then wash then wait to dry ....and bla bla bla....anyway.....My drunken hair dyeing party...

its always nice to get told that your dreads are really good, thick and getting tighter, and that someone else wants them...ive been told so much this weekend. I feel wonderful.
