scratch nose

(no subject)

Quick rushed entry, wanted to post these pictures.
Yesterday my husband and I met Lish lishd for some opportunistic dreadlock maintenance. She was in town for a short period of time and it just worked that we were able to meet up. Exciting!
We got there a bit late and got a bit of a late start but once we started in she was amazing. I know you're all surprized.
It took in all 5 hours and I ended up leaving from seeing her and going straight to work for my 5am shift and then working 8 hours. Its been a long day! Off to the decemberists concert right now (silly, silly chrissy- I have another 5am shift tomorrow!) but Im so geeked about this I wanted to share!

Fuzzy. The amount of fuzz in this picture doesnt even begin to give you an idea of how bad the underside of my head was.

are these even considered baby dreads yet? part two.

So today marks the two month anniversary of my second set of dreads. The first set I backcombed in five hours one night. I used a bit of wax. Wearing them up all day every day in pigtails put them through hell and back. I combed them out a few days after they'd turned two months. Shall we compare? Here's a bit of a timeline:

i also got my philtrum/medusa pierced yesterday.

They feel and look alot different from the 5 week mark. They're feeling harder, rather than fuzzy and spongey. Though so far i enjoyed them most at 5 weeks.
