futurama

(no subject)

Hey guys,
You probably don't remember me because I've only posted once before, but I had dreads back in October that I brushed out after three months because I hadn't been keeping up with them as well as I could have. Well, after a lack of dreads for the past two months I have really begun to miss them and I plan on making a second attempt sometime mid-March. I'd also like to play around with a little bit of color this time, something similar to Collapse )
I've read lishd's text on dyeing, but I'm still curious as to whether I would be better off dyeing before dreading, or after dreading. (I plan on going with some sort of teal color, so I would have to bleach the hair first) My hair had a relatively hard time staying together the first time I dreaded, so I don't want dyeing it afterwards to hinder it's progress.
aaaaaawkward

it was time...

ok, so I really loved having dreads, but I guess they're just not for me. I missed my long, flowing hair, and I just really needed to go back to that. Maybe someday along the line, I'll go back. For now, I'm happy with my brushable hair!

I also went blonde! I think it was a good choice, what do you think?

bye bye dreadies!
