[ mood | curious ]

my dreads are exactly a week old today.
i'm excited. and get even more excited with each moment.

BUUUUUUUT, i do have a question:

they still arent very tame, to which i can wear my hair down.
will this still take some time? or can i do something to help it?

thank you! pictures later today or tomorrow of my little but exciting process.

love you all!

How long to wait? [12 Jan 2006|11:23am]
I cut my dread off about 5 months ago. It happens every 4-5 years and it gives my head a chance to be fresh and cold for a while. But now I miss them so much and have to wait till there is enough hair. The question is, how much is enough hair?

From dreading other peoples hair I know that it depends on the hair type but I would love to hear form others how long they have waited and why?

Last time I waited till my hair was to my shoulders, dry. It is really wavy almost enough to be called curly. The time before that I put them in when the hair was 6 inches long when I pulled on it.

and just because, here is an old picture and a new one.

after all this time. [12 Jan 2006|07:57pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

i have come to the conclusion, now ... after my BIG CUT ... that, i hate my straight hair. lifeless and boring. i miss their scratchy touch, smell and fun.

i have been playing with the idea of having my hair cut at a salon, short and all ... and keeping i that way. I CANT!

grow hair grow, grow FAST! i want, i need my tangled locks back! i'm addicted.

alright guys. i always hate seeing these posts, and i couldn't ever understand why people would every cut their dreads. but i did, and i'm really glad i did it. i love not having them. although i did love having them. i don't regret it at all. i didn't understand it at all before, but now i do. it's real weird. anyway. here's sort of a montage. i cut them almost exactly one year after getting them.
