Day two!

They're looking a little gnarly, and the roots on one side just piss me off, but I'm hoping(and guessing) that'll fix itself soon enough. Overall, though, I'm very pleased!  Lots of scalp pain, but so worth it.  Hopefully the swimming won't hurt it too much, I went today and man, it went frizzy!

hey guys...well, its safe to say my dreadlocks are a year and a half old now....theyve gained some length in that time...when i started them they barely reached the bottom of my face...
instead of a picture, im going to post a video of a song i wrote on monday that i think some of you can relate to. i hope you guys dont mind, since you can see my dreadlocks in the video and all haha. i really should have woken up a little bit more before recording this, so you'll have to bare with me.

i have way too many friends who have a hardcore drug addiction. some have overdosed, some have died, and some are just becoming addicted....and it makes me very sad to see all of this happening in front of this song is about that. its called "chemical weapons".

hope you enjoy my super high tech, stretched out, audio delayed video haha...argh..

hell, a picture too while im at it.

four month oldies

My dreads are officially four months old tomorrow and I couldn't be happier with them. I got some new beads for them at JoAnn's and am playing and moving them around a lot now.

and here's me

on my way out to a birthday dinner

I still can't believe how much the beads have helped out the huge bumps in my dreads and how much attention they've gotten them; even my managers at work dig the beads. Aside from the bumps, some of my ends are doing some funky things and I have a feeling I might need to trim em, if anyone has advice on that, please let me know :)

Some dreads I created!

Here are some dreads which I have created for other people. I did some more when I lived in Ireland, which I guess would be about 3 years old now, I'm bugging her for pics! So here goes:

This is my boyfriend. First of all, new red dreadies:

and now they've calmed down a lot! I guess they're about 7 month old now:

and this is one of my best mates, I won't post loads of pics, as I can't remember how to do a cut, but here they are when I finished them. I guess these are now 2 weeks old!

sorry about loads of pics, if anyone can tell me how to do the cut - I'd appreciate it!

Dandruff and dreadies

Hi, I didn't want to post this with my previous post, as I didn't want it to get lost. My boyfriend suffers from a really flaky scalp, does anyone have any tips as to how to help him? The skin is getting caught in the dreads at the moment, and it isn't good! If we can sort his scalp out asap then hopefully the new growth will be fine.
I really appreciate any help.
