in love

(no subject)

we had some friends over this weekend and today i found some pics of me on my camera... i don't remember them being taken, but Collapse )
my little bangs that i re-dreaded are doing ok. i have not tightened up the roots like i do with the rest of my dreads just to see what would happen, but so far they have just grown out straight, no dready roots :(

undreaded dreams

Has anybody else had dreams where they took out there dreads and looked awesome with straight hair again?
I drempt that and woke up in a panic and touched my head.
Sadly though...i've been seriously considering taking them out. They just don't feel right to me anymore....
I'll wait this out but I don't know...
*ranting now so i'll end this*

Self Portraits 2006

I know it's been a while since I've posted pictures. I'm contemplating a bit of a trim in the spring, so I'm trying to document where they are now.

A bit of history: Started March 2002 by back-combing and minimal use of wax. Did some palm-rolling on the tips when they were about 6-months old and trimmed some loose hairs at the ends after about a year. Other than that, they've been dreading on their own for the last 4 years, with a little help weaving-in loose hairs with a crochet hook every once in a while.

Edit: Thanks for all the compliments and encouragement. I'm getting together some pictures of their early dread stage, as requested, but it's gonna take a little while to track them down and scan them.

first post

Man, first posts are a bitch when you're shy. >.<
anyhow, I thought it was time to post a picture of myself. I have had my hair locked for about a year now...when i first had them done my hair was probably like two inches in a lot of spots..hah. I just can't wait until i hit the three year mark. Anyhow, i'm excited that i finally took the first step and bleached my dreads. I've dyed them before but because my hair is so dark, the colors have always been fairly muted. okay, on to the pictures before i begin to ramble.

at the end of this week i'll be dying it a bright purple and when that wears off i'm probably going to switch to green or blue.

    ying yang twins-pull my hair

help me with color

So in the near future I'm going to strip the rest of the black out and add more color. As you can see, the color I added last time is a redish/burgandy color. I'd rather not have to rinse colors separately so keeping it simple would be nice. I also am not planning on choosing colors I have to bleach my roots for (my natural hair is light brown/dark blonde anyways). I thought initially I would maybe do the whole head in that red/burgandy color but long term maybe it's not something I want to stick with. I thought maybe a medium brown with the red highlights? Help me people, any ideas?

Pictures for reference...
