This is the only picture that i can post right now.  I have more
but we can not get the scanner to work so i had to take a picture of
this picture which makes me sad becasue i spent a lot of time printing
this so that i could post it.  I also have more and i will post
them as soon as i can get to a scanner that works.  But this is my
first self portrait so i hope you enjoy it as much as my boyfriend

If you guys are like me, you like to pretty-up your dreads. :)

So, I was walking through a discount store yesterday looking for cheap stuff, cause that's just fun to do. Heh. I came across the "health and beauty" section, and I found some hair, I guess you could call them. I always wanted one of those little hair braider things, that does it for you. They had them there, really cheap. I kept looking, and I found this little Igea wrap maker. It was only $4.99, they usually sell them for $20 or more on TV. I thought to myself, "What are the chances of this working?" But hell, for $5, I was willing to try. So, I got it home and tried it out. It actually worked! Well! I'm oddly suprised, but I love it now! It worked on one of my medium sized dreads. It comes with three colors of yarn, beads, fasteners, batteries, plus a hair threader. You just thread your hair through the middle of the little machine along with the yarn, turn it on, and move it down your hair (dread). I love this thing! Plus you can refill the spools with whatever yarn, string, or floss that you want, and it can do wraps in 1 to 3 colors. Here's a picture of my first wrap, I didn't do it so tight, but it can make the wraps as tight or loose as you want. This is a nifty little device. Woo!

I finally dreaded my hair. I got Sarah to section it off and then I backcombed it all by myself. Took forever. I didn't put any wax in it and I don't plan to. Just salt water. Hope for pictures tonight!

A Halloween Pic

It's been more than a while since I've frightened you all with a photo of myself, so here's one from halloween. I'm the guy with the dredlocks and the moustache (as opposed to the girl in the toga with short hair). Unfortunetly, I was wearing a black shirt so you have to look closely to see my dreds, but they do go down past the table that's in the way. It's not a great pic of me, but it will have to do.

ps: I'm really not that tall.


AHHHH My dreads are out of control. I have so many loose hairs and they look yucky. I tried the crochet needle thing.. and I couldn't really get the hang of it because the needle kept snagging on my roots and making things worse. Helllllllp.

so my dreads are three months old, messy as ever. some hair isn't even dreaded, bumps everywhere, my tips are dreading slowly and my dreads curl. i love them more than words. <3 i couldn't have them any other way.

I am being a post-whore

Ok so as some of you might have noticed i decided to keep my dreadies. But i have a few problems with them. I have about four of them in the back that are dreading together and i dont want to have a huge dread in the back of my head becasue i really dont have that many in the first place. So i was wondering what i could do beside ripping them apart, that hurts way to much. I also have a few in the front that are going together but i dont care as much about those ones becasue they are little so if they go together it will just end up the size of the rest of them, but i kinda like the little ones. Also i have really big (and i mean huge) loopies that i am not to fond of. Is there anything that i can do to fix them, i am really willing to do anything except cut the loopies. I like my dreads and i was thinking about taking out the ones that are having problems and then re-doing them, but i really dont want to lose the time that i have already put in to them by starting over. Thanks in advance for the comments!
