More pics!

I went to Donington this weekend for the Download festival, excellent times. There were people with dreads EVERYWHERE.

I also very briefly met mylastchance after just seeing Mastodon

Five days out in the sun did wonders for my dreads, they've tightened up a lot now. Five days of dust and dirt getting in there wasn't so good though...

you'll all be happy to know that this community has successfully infiltrated my subconscious.

a couple weeks ago, i dreamed that lish posted a photo of her face.

and last night, i dreamed that i met jame0.

i was in the netherlands for some school training weekend... or something... and we were on a lunch break. i was walking past a table in this restaurant and i thought, "wow, that's james from GUDU!" we ended up going to get coffee, and he made fun of me for my pronunciation, and complete lack of knowledge of the UK english dialect. (yes, we were in the netherlands. but everyone spoke in an english accent anyway. come on, it was a dream!)

Hello ; )

Hello : )

So ! I'm new here : ) I've been watching this community since, hm, maybe a month, and I finally decided to post =]

so.. what can I say ?

I'm in love with dreadlocks since forever, and I started backcombing like hm, 1 year and 2 months ago. Well, my dreads actually looked like.. nothing for a long time ^^ In fact, I backcombed like a few dreads sometimes, when I wanted to. So they all came like that, most of them backcombed, the others partially natural, with different sizes and shapes. The last time I count they were like.. 110. yeah. But now they started to congo, and I loooove that ; )

here's for the little presentation..

Oh, and also, i'm french : )

You know, I dreaded up almost 4 months ago. I feel like they're so young, but at the same time, it feels like I've had them forever. They feel good.

They're lumpy and loopy and there are two or three bits that just do not want to dread up. I have loose hairs all over creation. The width of my dreads keeps fluctuating... Some days a bead will stay on a particular dread, other days it slides right off.

My dad told me I looked feral.

The director at one of the animal shelters I volunteer at is in love with my hair. I keep getting kitten claws stuck in my dreads and it takes another person to unhook them. I love the way my shadow looks when my dreads are all poofed out.



I had an incredible moment recently... I went to put them up in a ponytail, and realized I had to struggle to gather them all up in one hand to put the rubber band around them. They've just... evolved. It's amazing.

Photos sometime soon, hopefully.

anyone else doing a lot of lake swimming etc...?
I'm trying to find a good way to keep my dreads dry if it's not sunny enough to dry them out fast enough

what do you do if you come home from the beach to not have smelly hair?
