OH YES! OH NO! [14 Jun 2006|02:39am]
I just had sex so hard and long that when we were done and the dust had cleared we found half a dread lying in the bed. I guess that's what happens when your dreads get so long they can get stuck under another human being.

My GF took a pic that I plan to put up tomorrow. I mean a pic of the dread.

They're coming along nicely. I'm having my doubts whether I should keep the long bangs or not. But if I proceed into locking them I'll never be able to reverse the effects completely.

BEADSSSSS [14 Jun 2006|11:03am]
okay, so i'm going to dye a couple of my dreads. i've been reading about dread-dying (including lish's), but i have a question still about beads.
i dont plan on dying the dreads that have beads in them, but if someday i wanted to, say, dye my whole head, would i have to take out the beads?
also, i just put in two beads for the first time a couple of days ago, so i dont know if they actually grow into the dread or whatever. (so far i can still take them off, but i want them to grow in, so i havent been messing with them too much.)

another thought along the lines of beads.. i was looking at a site for organic earrings, plugs, body jewelry, etc. and they said that wooden jewelry should not be emersed in water. if i get wooden beads, does that mean i have to take them out to bathe or swim?

one more question.. i got my bellybutton pierced a few weeks ago, and it's now cockeyed.. like it shifted diagonally. i'm thinking this is because i sleep on my stomach, but will it heal normally?...

okay, pics of the big bead. the little one didnt get photgraphed :(

two weeks ago, getting love from folks i hadn't seen in months upon months.
if you look closely, you can kind of see the fantastic peyote stitch done
by our very own robin_m_sills/mamaslilqueer - i highly reccomend
her and her work to anyone who's lookin for something low cost and
high snazz! yes, my roots are gold instead of blonde because... well, i was
foolish and impatient and washed the bleach out too soon (because my head
was iiiiitchyyyyyyyyyyyy). oh, and one last thing? if you've got rough locks,
shea butter really IS the bombdiggitydang cure (thanks, alaskadanielle!)

...and... yes.. my nose is swollen because i got in a FIGHT!... or, well.. the ocean
decided to whack me with my very own surfboard a few days prior. sadly, i liked the
way it made me look (i dont own/use makeup and.. hahaha.. i thought the rough n'
tumble looked suited me quite finely. i kind of miss it now that it's healed?)

...and a shot of the back, perhaps?Collapse )

A question about braiding and plaiting with dreads... [14 Jun 2006|02:13pm]
I've been watching this community for a while now, and I've finally decided to de-lurk: mainly because I want to ask a question...

I really really like the idea of having dreads (despite the fact my mother will, undoubtedly, murder me if I get them. But, I digress!), however I also really like braiding and plaiting my hair.

Questions under here, cut for your convenienceCollapse )

Thank you, in advance!

The bright colors are fake. yes! and around the back i added fake ones also because the dreads there are a wee 1 1/2" long right now ;) still knotted though! prolly about 12 fake ones all together. the rest of those lil guys are roughly 2 years and 9 months old right now, and bulk of my undercut is grown out into 6" long dreads.. about a year and a half ago... recently bleached and dyed orange + red. and i think they are finally starting to grow! heheh.

take care!
