Dread faux-hawk!

I have my webcam up and running after about a month of lazyness... it'd be much better if my digi was working, but alas this will have to do!

my dreads are 5 1/2 months old now, and I'm so in love with them! A friend and I got together last week for some maintenance - his locks are nearly 2 years old and it was Amazing to be playing with them - and we're getting together again so he can continue to hack away at separating some of my dreads in the back that like to grow together.

Sorry for the text only.

I decided to start off the new year with the dreads I've been wanting for five years now. I backcombed them to hell, and I think gave them a pretty good start. No bands, no wax.

My only question at the moment.. How long until they stop standing off of my head Sideshow Bob style? ;) I'm taming them with a headband at the moment. Do they tend to lay down after the first wash, maybe?

I've been lurking in this community for a very long time, and I'm thrilled to be able to be a posting member now. :D
