So the job didn’t work out….now I am really thinking that I should go back to school and hopefully decide which path (artistically) to take after the rest of my core classes are out of the way. The whole idea about going back to school is that it will also give me time to allow my hair to mature. My only worry is that my hair will itch like it did when I had them in for that short amount of time. I have read the memories..i went and bought t-gel but my head itched sooo bad that I was miserable. If I can find someway to avoid that misery or at least calming it down a bit then I will be fine. The thought of the itching coming back makes me hold off a bit. I am not sure if its because I washed my hair too much or didn’t rinse well…I religiously watch all of you and your hair mature and become wonderful things of nature and this spot inside of me that wants to join the group…..but that itching………

I just finished dying some of my dreads. I picked up some Nuclear Red SFX from a local Hot Topic.

One thing I should have though about before I rinsed my hair: Separate the dreads when rinsing. A few of the other blond dreads surrounding the dyed ones got a bit of the rinse water on them, subsequently turning them a slight shade of pink. Oh well. Life's all about learning, right?

Crappy webcam pics:

All in all, I'd have to say I'm pleased. If I get fed up with the pinkish dreads, I can just bleach them again.

Notice the unicorn/narwhal action I've got going on.

I never would have thought a hairstyle could change a person.
As time goes by, I increasingly want them to be more natural. Even planning my next set to be entirely natural. Anybody else feel that way? I think most everyone learns how beneficial it is to "leave them alone" after they start their dreads. But I am glad that I ripped them apart and that I palm rolled in the shower, so maybe I don't know what I'm talking about.

Text only PHILOSOPHICAL question about dreads... cut for people who don't care :)Collapse )

In totally unrelated news: I am a costumer at our theater and I did my first set of dreads today-- on a WIG, for a Captain Jack Sparrow costume :) I used twisting and lots of backcombing and they came out really cool, I was very pleased!

Still very happy with my dreads but after sleeping and working all night they have gotten a little more frizzy. I guess thats probably normal. Also I am going to a concert on Monday and its one where I will probably get soaked with stuff. This will not hurt the dreads to much will it?

Sort of timeline. [24 Oct 2006|11:47pm]
Well my dread's second birthday is coming up. I wanted to go for a proper timeline, but this one's kinda half assed seeing as I left most of my pictures at home on my old pc. UNH.
I still found some oldies in my photobucket though. woop.

Nevertheless it's pretty image heavy.Collapse )
