Okay, so my best buddy etdemie has been bugging me to take pictures of her dreads and post them here for months... and I am finally getting around to it. They're (I think) eight months old, in hair that was originally tight TIGHT ringlet curls. She went to Hawaii for a month and a half in early summer, and came back with them three times as tight and half as long. (Thank YOU ocean water!)

Annnyway, here they are:

Montreal? Bordeaux?

Ahoy my dredlocked companions!

Are there any of you beautiful people currently living in Montreal? It looks like I may be spending a morning and afternoon there in early october, and I'd love to meet some of you.

Also, I'm moving to Bordeaux. Any dredheads there? Anybody want to hook a brother up with un job?

Kay, guys. I'm sure most of you couldn't care less, but I need some outside opinions about what color to go.

For reference, I currently look like Collapse )

Something to let you know is that I feel, although I haven't been told outright, that my hair color is holding me back from promotions at work. I love having bright haircolors, but I also need to be making more money than I currently am. So I am especially having a hard time with this decision, because I'm so conflicted. Ahh. Vote.

Today I found out that I have lice and I was wondering if any of you on here has had it and got rid of it a different way than cutting your hiar off or combing it out and then using treatment. Im just really sad because I planned on having my hair for years and years and Ive only had it for a year and almost 3 months..

It's been two months...

It's been two months since I last brushed my hair. I've posted pictures of my 'work in progress' a month and two months ago (http://community.livejournal.com/get_up_dread_up/3172953.html and http://community.livejournal.com/get_up_dread_up/3109203.html, respectively). And here's my latest update :)

I guess some of you are a bit tired of posts with pictures of hair that doesn't actually look like dreads, but there are few reasons why I feel I should post my pictures anyway. First, the pictures might help other people who are thinking about dreading their hair naturally. Second, if I manage to post every month for a year or a year and a half, it will prove that all hair (since I've been told that all other hair types than mine dread even faster) will dread eventually if you stop brushing it.
