Dreadlocks are love (really late I know!)

Hey everyone! I've missed you all! I lost my internet and broke my computer so I've been without this wonderful community for about 5 weeks. (boourns I didn't get to be on the background!) I took this picture a few days ago and I love how it turned out. I know Valentines day and the theme "Dreadlocks are Love" is long past but whatever - its not like I ever follow rules anyways! :P I met Matt and Megan at a local show and asked if I could take their picture as a part of my semester-long english assignment I'm working on. Its a magazine style article with photography and writing about alternative forms of beauty which will focus mostly on dreadlocks, tattoos and piercings.

In other news, anyone have any input on dying/bleaching dreads with metal beads in (copper, silver, brass)? I took them all out last time, but that was a massive pain in the keister. Also, anyone have thoughts of any kind on wool extensions? I'm a fiber artist, so I know what I'm doing with the wool bits, just the interactions between the wool bits and the hair bits are making me a tad wary. Washing instructions, oh-god-don't-do-that's, length or felting suggestions, anything really. I'd like to get them done before we go to Southeast Asia next month.

one is the lonliest number

i had dreads for about a year and a half. i tried getting a job. and that did not work out at all. i needed a job badly so i was left with having to brush out all my dreads and cut my hair. it was horrible to have to do. i miss my dreads so much. to everyone who has dreads, never, ever get rid of them. i miss my babies. well now i want them again. except i still have to find a job that would accept dreads. for the time being i have decided that i will have one dread underneath some hair so people cant see it for interveiws. then once i find this "dream job" i will get all my babies back.
