Lovely Li Drawing

Dreaded with love

This week my wonderful girlfriend, Alison (itcomesinpints) moved into her new house and I backcombed all her lovely hair to start her on the road to some funky dreads =) It took seven hours and was just a tad painful around the hairline.

Also, a shot of one of my newly felted (and just washed in the photo) dreads!

Yeah almost 2 years!

I've got them as a present 2 years ago for my birthday.
I'm still very happy although a few weeks ago I had a I-hate-my-dreads day. I was at a hairdresser to let my hair cut (not my dreads) and because I had to wait I looked into a magazine full of beautiful girls with beautiful hair. And I was sooo jealous! Sometimes I really think of cutting them off, but I can't. Dreadlocks are the best thing that are ever happen to me.

How old are your dreads?
Do you hate them sometimes?

i know there was once a post about dreaded folks in marching bands, but i'm wondering if any of you have marched in a drum and bugle core?

i'm going to be auditioning for the pit at the boston crusaders this year, but i've been told that my hair might get in the way of a position.

i guess the girls in the pit are supposed to wear their hair really sleeked back?

do you think i'd be able to get the same effect if i put shitloads of gel in my hair before every performance? (considering i make it)

i really want this experience but changing my hair style is not really an option for me right now.
