asian dreads.

i'm a little embarrassed/apprehensive about asking because i don't want anyone to take it the wrong way but i was wondering if there was anyone in the community that's asian and has dreads? and how much trouble they've had/or not had...and just you know, their whole experience. and pictures, maybe. am i asking for too much?

actually, this also goes out to anyone who's actually WORKING AGAINST their hair's natural tendency...because before i took the comb to my hair to backcomb it, i never combed my hair. i feel like all the rubbing and the rolling in the world could never make my hair stay this way. hahaha.

Xmas fun!

On christmas day we went to my parents during the day for dinner and everything. Then we went up to the restaurant I used to work in for a few drinks and to say hi, I really miss working there! It was great apart from the fact that my old boss kept going on about how messy my hair looked. She said "last time I saw you, you looked so normal. Your hair was so lovely. Now look at it, it's such a mess!" That sucks, it really hurt my feelings, especially coming from someone who is quite important to me, as a boss and a friend. It's the only real negative comment I've had, it kinda hurt my feelings. I thought really carefully about it before I got my dreads and they mean a lot to me. I wish people could understand that it's my hair and my choice.

Anyway, here's some pictures. Sorry they're rubbish, can't work out how to turn the flash off my camera. **D'oh**

Hope everyone had a decent time over this holiday filled season. Family get togethers is one of the few times that I will sit for a picture and will somewhat attempt to look kinda happy about it. I got to hang out with my kickass mom who actually did my hair for me. She keeps offering to palm roll them for me and trim up some of the larger clumps that aren't dreading well.

Seriously, coolest mom ever.

Everyone have a happy new year and all that other junk.
