so, 9 months? & Dread Maintenance? [15 Jan 2006|12:13am]

My curious, curious mind, wonders if anyone on here, is from Grenoble, France? Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA? North/northwestern Ontario, Canada? or pretty much anywhere around those.

hey everyone, i'm new here. i've had my dreads for about five months now. and i LOVE THEM. i was nervous at first about how they looked. i wanted them to be perfect.i dindt want them to be too big, or too small, or too fat, or too skinny. i finally have come ot understand that dreads arent supposed to be perfect. its like life in a way. they're all different, all 46 of my dreads "act" in a different way. its like they have their own personalities. i love it. for instance i tried to combine 4 different dreads into two bigger ones. and they only locked up about halfway. at first i hated it. now theyre pretty much my favourite ones ever. i have more loops than i can count. and soo many more are wavy "s" shapes. i've come to like my dreads' imperfections more than the normal looking rounder ones. i get asked question about my locks all the time. and it makes me happy. i love my dreads. i'll post pictures when i get some good ones from my friends. i just thought i'd say hi to everyone.

word up

So I've never posted in here before, but I thought my one year dread anniversary would be the time to do so.

So as a tribute, here is EVERY PICTURE TAKEN OF ME WITH DREADLOCKS, EVER. There are approximately a thousand, give or take.Collapse )

my adventures in hair dye [15 Jan 2006|11:33pm]
I've had my hair dyed black for 3+ years now, and was happy with it for about two of those years. Lately, though, I've been frustrated with it, and wish in my angsty goth years I would have given it more thought before diving in.

Anyways, I dared to try hair stripper. It took a lot of love, care, and protein treatments, but my hair didn't fall out and was left a lovely orange/brown color for me to dye on top of. So far only 14 of my 35 dreads are stripped and dyed, eventually I'll probably do the rest.

I would discourage anyone wanting to use black to use permanent dye. It is NOT easy to get out!

Here are the results of my adventures this week....

Special thanks to lishd whose guide to dying dreads was very helpful.
