hair becomes fascinating when you've been up for a few days... [17 Oct 2005|04:38am]
[ mood | quixotic ]

I picked up some liquid Dr Bronners Peppermint soap and gave my locks a wash - and to my shock my dreads are suddenly Very very soft, and most of my tips that i crocheted last week came loose again. The tips part makes sense, the water pressure in my shower is pretty high so I think that's what pulled those out. It's the soft factor that worries me! Has anyone else had this happen with dr bronners? I love the smell and feel of this and am hoping it's just a fluke that this happened. I'm making the game plan of lots of salt water sprays throughout this week and lots of palm rolling - anyone disagree/agree?

Hello hello!

Can anyone tell me how your "round" the tips of your dreads? I think that's how I heard it described before and it seems to make them seem so healthy. Thanks for your help!

10 and a half month old locks [17 Oct 2005|01:27pm]
I'm getting increasingly annoyed with the black hair color recently. I've decided I want to switch to a purply-burgandy color, and I need to find out some info on color strippers, and maybe like a year from now I'll have the guts to go through with it (I'm terrified of my hair falling out).

Anyways, here are some pictures from this weekend. My dreads are 10.5 months old.

Bad dread day [17 Oct 2005|06:31pm]
I was so mad this morning..
First of all I had 4 hours sleep,
and I had a bad dread day!
They we're like GLUED to my head!
And all the nice tips I backcombed and rubber banded yesterday looked all miserable!
So I was a little angry beacuse of that as well..
I was considering hiding them underneath a hat all day,
but stupid teachers wouldn't permit that..
So I put them in a pony tail..

Makes me sad to see them untangle =(
but I have decided
I will not cut them, they will shrink a lot when I have tightened them up.. (I hope)
Does this seem like the right thing to do?

I promise to update pics soon, when I get my own computer back.
Promise =)

Any of you kids in the Colorado area?

Thought we could mock the Bostonians and have ourselves a little dreadie party.

Happy 2 Month Birthday! [17 Oct 2005|10:52pm]

Yup. My babies are 2 months old and I love them more and more each day. They have shrunk soo much but I am glad because that made them thicken out slightly.

These dreads are for keeps. Through good or bad they are staying with me. I have made the mistake of removing dreads before and I will not be making it again for a good long while.
