Hey i guess my locks are around 3 now... a lil older maybe, you never know.... So I think im around that point where some of my locks look like tight smooth woven rope... tight as can be and STRONG. Some around the size of a pen, some about the size of a huge girth black mans wanger. Then you got the ones in the back like beaver tails... so i got my nose pearced real low, anyways off to work.
my pic...bleet.. dont know the code. rich text wont work. ugh

it has begun!

Well my fellow lovely dreadies,

There is a dread in my hair, and the whole process starts at the end of april!!! I'm so excited! I have been growing my hair out for so long and it's finally getting long for me to be happy and dread it up. My best friend wants to dread my hair, but he just moved to ohio a couple of weeks ago, so the soonest I can fly up there (AND SURPRISE HIM!!) is the end of April. Until then..... I got a little impatient and decided to see if I could do one myself... see how it would turn out with my paper thin straight smooth hair...

did I mention two people have ever cut my hair, and it's only been highlighted once? (but no one could tell.) Never dyed or treated besides that. This will be a big change!

some people say they wish they had known _________ before they started... anyone want to share those stories?? thank you!!

So the memories section won't work for me right now after 15 minutes of trying, and it's really pissing me off. So if someone could link me to a post on how to crochet loose hairs in before I start throwing things at my computer screen, I would really appreciate it.

all gone!

Haven't made the time to update in a while.. no particular reason, I suppose, just hanging out with my amazing boyfriend, being utterly content... you know, things that aren't normal for me. I've been enjoying it. :D

And on March 9th, I cut off my dreads.
No, no reason in particular. A couple days before that I was thinking, "Hmm.. I feel like cutting my dreads.." And I thought on it for a couple days, and I was fine with it. So, *shrug*. I cut them all to about 2 1/2 - 3 inches in length, then my boyfriend, Aaron, volunteered to brush them out for me. Which took ALL DAY. He obviously didn't know what he was getting into, and he said as much when we were finished, hehe. But he was a good sport about it. And I'm quite happy with the result. I don't regret having dreads, and I don't regret cutting them off. The time felt right for some reason.

I had my dreads for... 9 months and a few days. I saved all of them, except one that I brushed all the way out before I started cutting, just to see if it could be done.

So... dreads up for trade, I suppose. I'll keep a few of them, but there's no need for me to keep them all. That leaves about 50 dreads up for trade. :) Trade me one of your dreads, or .. something else that I'd find interesting. Make an offer. Thanks! *kisskiss*
