These are not, the best dreads in the world, these are just a tribute.......

Thank you to all of you for your kind words and stuff, it's hugely appreciated. For mostly personal reasons, I put together a collection of some of my favourite pictures of my dreads from over the years for me to look at and remind myself how much fun we've had over the last 7 - 8 years. If anyone wants a look, they may do so here.

hello lovely dreadies. i'm new to the community as well as livejournal (well, a couple weeks anyway). i do not have dreads myself, even though i haven't owned a brush for about two years now (it's the damn conditioner, i'm addicted to it) but love looking at them. i'm hardly at the computer anyway so i'd be horrible at updates if i were to. but friends would be wonderfully lovely anyway, tiny little dreads or big thick ones, i'm not picky. just wanted to let you know so i'm not a "lurker"

Wow, GUDU, SOOOOO much has happened since the last time I posted here.

I took on a huge task with my friend Joel who also has dreads. I don't know how old his were, but he basically coated them with wax and all but three inches in the middle was loose hair. So I sat down and brushed the wax out to the best of my ability and then backcombed new babies. I only did the top half of his head, where the knotting was the least developed and he apparently could reach the best, as there was a ton of wax. I was working for about three hours on them, and my arms were killing me. Collapse )

So I also finally ditched my ucky fuchsia growing out mess and bleached the roots and added fresh dye. My dreads are NINE MONTHS OLD as of this last Monday. It was like I was pregnant, but now, instead of staying up all night to take care of an screaming infant, I sleep peacefully knowing I have some kickass hair.

So this was the before:
