i know i just recently posted, but i wanted to say now that after my dyeing experience, i know that dreads indeed do tighten up from the process. everything was thoroughly rinsed and i used lish's instructions. even though the color didn't really change, i'm keeping it like this because i realized that i like my hair color anyway. the dreads are so much tighter now! so, i guess this is just a testament to lish. like she doesn't have enough. :)

Ahhh, silly livejournal keeps deleting my posts. :(

I'm slightly new here, I've been lurking for many, many months, admiring the beauty of each and every one of you/your dreadlocks. :D
And I figured finally I should start posting a few pictures. I posted a while back with concern of a spot on the back of my head [a stress spot/allopecia(forgivemyspelling.)] and since then it's healed nicely and a ton of cute tiny hairs have all sprouted back!

I've been attempting to do natural dreads, so they're about....3 months old? I haven't brushed in a long while, and they're tangling up pretty nicely. I've been trying to follow all of the tips around here, and they've helped ALOT. [I find palmrolling when wet to be most effective.]

Anyways, they're preeetty tiny right now, so please be nice!

well i had a pretty weird dreadlock experience. seeing as im in high school, i went to a band concert, and saw a guy that looked over 20 and he had dreads. as soon as i saw him he was walking up these stairs, so i got really excited and ran after him and as he was walking up i shouted "i like your dreads" and then it was akward so i said "see the only reason is because i have dreads and ive had them for about two months" then he goes "two months? ive had them for four years" and then i felt really stupid i tried to post pictures but for some reason i am having a really hard time doing it.

Asi Que Deja Mi CuCu!!! some pics of my dreads...they've shrunk alot, though. These are pics when they were like...a month old. But theyre still beauuutiful!!! Orale pues, enjoy my pics!!! VIVA ZAPATA!!!

Me with pink highlights

dread give-away

SOOOOoooooo....I made my undercut higher :)

And now I have 6 dreads to give away.
The dreads are about 4-5 inches long.

So anyone wanting one of my dreads, comment with an email address and I'll get back to you. First come, first serve.

But here's the catch:

I collect buttons. Funny buttons, picture buttons, band buttons, gay pride buttons. Small buttons, big buttons. Anything.

Send me a button, any ol' button. And I'll send you back one of my dreads.

So comment with your email, I'll give you my mailing address, send me a button and I'll send you a dread :)
