so reasons because of reasons unknown to me, im up at 6 am.
dont ask why.
im watching vh1 and its a video why natasha bedingfield.
and for a split second it flashed to a scene in a laundry mat and i swear the girl looked like she had these fattie blond dreads. but it really was just a second, and im tired and pretty high.
but it looked that way to me.

can someone ease my mind? did i see dreads or am i just imagining them everywhere i look haha.

Start of a new...saga? Era? Revolution? Fill in the blank.

I've posted here before, mostly about the powers of persuasion needed concerning dreads. BUT NOW THAT IS OVER.

My parents were fighting so I was like, "Today seems like a good day to do Walter."

Who is Walter, you ask? Is he an art project? Is he a boy I've had my eye on? Or, is he something better like the first dread I ever made? If you guessed the third one, you're probably right because context clues (i.e. the community I'm posting this in) are amazing.

Here is his story.

I have to hide him from my parents, and also have to put the rest of this under the cut!

He's a little frizzy, and there's a crazy bunch of looping, but overall I'm pretty proud of him and I hope that he grows up to be a smart, gorgeous little boy :3

I dyed all my dreads red recently, I LOVE the color. Now if only the hair would stop falling out.... Usually it's just tiny hairs when I fuss with it but a 2 inch chunk came off one a couple weeks ago. Needless to say I freaked out and I really couldn't tell which one it came off of. EEK! I have also recently tried to tame the frizzies on my head and I've had a little luck with the clockwise rubbing. I imagine it takes continued (daily?) rubbing to really make a noticeable difference? Lately I've even been considering (*gasp*) wax to help reduce the appearance of the frizz but I just can't get myself to do it.

I've been feeling weird about my hair lately. I used to love it so much, but I've been toying with the idea of changing something because right about now I'm really not loving in the same way. I was so excited about the way I thought my dreadlocks would be, but I ended up with these knarly, stubby things that wont stop shrinking (Yes... they are STILL shrinking. I've lost well over a foot in length at this point, which I hate) or fattening or looping or changing. Not that this is a bad thing, but I've just had to adjust a lot. I'm tempted to post a timeline or something because my dreads look like they belong to a different person basically every time I take new pictures. I know you guys probably don't care, but I feel weird whining about my dreads to people who don't understand.

Ohhhhkay. I took pictures though so this wont be all negativity!
