san francisco & santa cruz are full of gorgggeous dreadheads. today in downtown santa cruz i saw 16, all of which were very long (mid-back, at least) and at least two years old. !@@#@ they were lovely and they made me very happy. :)

Finally, some pictures!

I have dreads! Woot and yay!
My first 8 were created on 10th June (5 by my lovely friend Anja, and 3 by my momma), another 5 were added on random dates after that (again, by my wonderful momma), and then on Saturday I went to Brighton beach and met an absolutely fantastic homeless hippy with dreads called Rosie who is bilingual in Spanish and English and finished off my dreads, with my friend Asha, ripping and twisting by hand, for a mere £20. She didn't do anywhere near as good a job as my glorious mummy, who backcombed til her arms nearly fell off, but at least I have a whole head of dreads now and I'll let her off 'cause she gave me a pretty bell. I'll probably go through the loosest rip and twist ones and backcomb the roots when I have time, because they are uber loose, but I promise I'll only do that once and after that I'll leave 'em alone!

I gots a new top/dress and new wellies and I wanted to show them off, along with my beloved dreadies. My momma said it made me look like sock monkey. I have no problem with that.
