They're done! [26 Sep 2006|10:13am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Last Wednesday after I moved into my new house, I finally got dreaded (I just got around to posting it now because we didn't have the internet here until yesterday :P). Anyway, I am most delighted with them and most grateful to adrunkwithclass who spent 6 hours torturing my head. Yeah, it really really hurt.

Anyway, pictures...Collapse )

They've been ok this past week, a little itchy at times but mostly if I ignore that it goes away. I haven't washed them yet because they're kind of fluffy and I know you have to wait a while. I had fine, prettymuch dead straight hair beforehand and I'm a bit scared they'll unravel when I wash them, however I have some old tights at the ready and our shower is pretty weak soooo... here's hoping it will go ok when I take the plunge (no pun intended :P).

so, i have not posted around here in about a billion years. just thought id give a little update. i've been growing my dreads (from super short) for more than a year now, and they;re just getting to that stage where they touch my shoulders and flip up at the ends. this drives me mad. i just want them to be LOOOOOONG!

ah well... here are the pics! (sorry they're not super)

yay!Collapse )

Progress! [26 Sep 2006|06:32pm]
Hey y'all!

After 3 1/2 months, I'm finally seeing serious progress with my lovely locks. Here's a mini timeline (mainly because I just saw the last pic and was shocked at how wild and crazy and awesome they looked!)

lock me up.Collapse )

Are there natural dreads on this community, or all "hand-made"? [26 Sep 2006|10:39pm]

Nice to see several communities of dreads here, and this looks like the most interesting. But so far I've only heard about folks with hand-made dreads and usually less than a year old. Wondering if this community is more diverse than what I've seen so far. Just curious...
