dreads deserve cookies

Since my locks have hit those awful toddler years, I've been trying to ignore them and let them do their own thing rather than picking fights. (I suppose they're still babies, but at six months they definitely act as though they've learned to say "NO!".) Today, however, I was incredibly impressed, particularly since I had a job interview. They fell perfectly and didn't cause the slightest bit of trouble.

ok. so i'll explain this better. maybe this could go down in the FAQ's because i am in the middle of treating my hair right now.

my head has been itching for about a week, mostly at the back of my neck. this morning while i was scratching it like mad i felt something between my fingernails, took a look and it was a small louse! so i freaked right out...

my mother has had experience with this before, being i had lice three times as a child. she took a look at my hair, dug around in there and she said she saw nothing.

everything is on lock-down, i called in from work, i am delousing (hah, sp?) my apartment like a meth fiend. went out and bought nix lice cream (kills eggs and lice) and rid shampoo. i've just used the nix now i'm letting my hair dry so that i can use the rid shampoo. in about a week i'll use the nix cream again just to be sure... if the itching comes back and these assholes dont die...... i guess i'll have to cut off my babies. meh.

i guess i'll leave my results in the comments. oh dear.

Some of you might remember me growing a beard for dreadlock purposes.

last week, i counter-clockwise rubbed the beard, and put ti into two strands, in rubber bands.
beard hair is VERY coarse and dreads like a motherfucker if you let it :)

Today, i merged the two strands, now that they got the chance to stick to a shape in a month, i will post result pics.

wish me luck.

(going great so-far)

2 days ago were my dreadzies 1 year aniversary, by the way.
