i was walking my puppy today and one of my neighbors came up to us and said
her: i just wanted to tell you how much i love your hair me: thanks her: yea, i had dreads 18 years ago me: realy how long did you have them?? her: 4 months, then i got sick of then me: :) i just tought it was cute, because she a mom with 2 young kids and she used to have dreads. most people her age ask "why did you do that?" and "when will you take them out" and she had them :) shes so cool. and shes a really nice lady too.
So this marks the one year for my dreads. I Started June 23 last year took almost a month doing them by myself with little help from my boyfiend on sectioning the back. I was slowly taking out the extensions and dreading and resectioning the hair. I have used no wax, just lemon juice, aloe, and sea salt. Most of the black ones are real, all colors are extensions. Lots of pics.. ( Collapse )
Hey. Does anyone here live in the boston newton brookline area? I am new, but have wanted and been doing my share of learning about dreadlocks for a long time, and the time has come. I have been planning on going to a african place (really, the dont even speak english) to get them done. I havve blond hair. I had braids like 5 months ago:[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v601/righteousbabe/ddd89691.jpg
