the things people do in their spare time

Hola fellow dread heads! I joined the community a week or so ago when I was feeling like I wanted to pick out every last dread and go back to having nappy frizzy curly hair. Looking at everyone's pictures made me feel good again about being a different shade of nappy.

I've had my dreads since May of this year... so they're just 3 months old. They're looking quite swell and are locking up pretty good. Right now they're in the loopy stage for some of the locks. I have a bunch of loose hair that I need to get locked up in there... but the loose hair doesn't bother me much.

Being that they're kinda small, I have to blow dry them straight otherwise they'll get all curly. It looks cute on some days, but others it looks kinda freakish. They mostly curl at the root and ends, but some curl all over.

Red!!!

Hi guys. It's been a while since I posted but I dyed my dreads red the other day so I wanted to share pics.

My dreads are now about two and a half months old. I love 'em!!! They're doing the loopy thing now but they're getting tighter every day and I'm really pleased with how they're turning out.

I combed out my dreads. And I cried. I miss them. And even though it took hours to get them out, knowing me I'll be sitting down in front of a mirror and starting all over sometime before the night is over. I don't feel like myself without them. Even though they weren't even dready looking yet. I only had them for a month and a half or two months. Ahh it makes me sad. :(
