a story u may enjoy.

so i work in this poopy factory to earn money for school. were talking they hire anyone and i mean anyone. this will be my second week employed there so i don't know everyone yet due to it is so large but i was walking by this lady at work and she said to me; "when i was in jail we use to beat the shit out of white girls that have dreadlocks, they shouldn't have them like you." of course im shy and ran away but later i had to walk by that way and was fed up with everything, tired and grumpy you know. so when i passed her again she was like remember what i said about those girls with dreads. i turned to her and said yea well if i was in prison you'd be my bitch. the look on her face was priceless but im a little sketchy on going to work tomorrow. :) it made me laugh.

*edit*i forgot i wanted to mention that the nurse lady at the ortho was asking all kinds of questions about my hair.. are u dreading your hair up? how long? what do you use? that kind of stuff. it was just a nice, no judgment, actaully interested in my hair kind of conversation. made my already great trip better!

I'm having my dreadlocks removed at the Knotty Boy salon in Vancouver, either next week or the week after. I haven't been to Vancouver in two years, has anyone been to this salon or one like it? Do you think that having a professional do it instead of, say, my boyfriend, would yield better results?

Let me clarify the situation a little. I've had my dreads for over two years, and I love them to death, but I'm just at one of those thresholds. Ready to shed all this dead weight and be freed of it. Ready to leave all those heavy, old thoughts behind. You know? It's been a great journey and I would wish it upon everyone if I could, I grew so much and learned so much. But the person I am now, the way I see myself, is without dreads. I want to move on from who I wanted to be and what I believed in when I was 17. I am 100% sure that this is what I want, and I've been waiting for an opportunity to get them out for a long time.

Anyway, all my friends who got rid of their dreadlocks did it on their own with a bunch of conditioner. I know that's possible, but it takes a long damn time and I just have faith that someone trained to do this will be better at it. The cost is not an issue. I just want feedback from anyone who's been to a dreadlock salon or had their dreads removed.

I miss them already. But I'm ready for whatever's coming my way when they're gone.

I forgot to mention that my main goal is to save as much length as possible, if not all of it. Also, I forgot to mention that they're all-natural... started by simply not brushing my hair.

I haven't posted pictures in quite some time. I don't own a digicam, or a camera at all for that matter, and so I rely on others to provide me with photos.

Anyhow, I went to a party recently, and these were taken:
