hi guys!
i'm dying my hair again...
it's gonna be blond, as in white :)

i started yesterday with a try out on the front,
because i went to a shop where they had this hydrogen peroxide with 60 vol. / 18 %
so i bought it, and afterwards i was scared to put in my hair, it's a bit agressive stuff...
but it worked, though it burned a bit. it's now blond/yellow and some roots are almost white.
here are some pictures, i'm gonna be dying for a few days, so i'll post more pictures of the progress :)

Re-starting the dreads, and here's a couple of the ones I've done myself. I thought you all may enjoy a picture. Can you find my babies hiding in there?

After two attempts, and having the people that started my dreads never get back to me, I've decided to go it alone. Hell, they'll mean a lot more to me if I do them myself anyway, right?

I'll be back with an update in a few days.

Well, I redid my dreads on Saturday due to my paranoia, but I'm much happier with these ones, and am unsure whether I'm gonna rip'em apart, but leave them tangled to let them do their own thing, or just keep them.. Anyways, These ones look much smaller, and tighter thant he last ones, but there's only like 3 more.. which I find odd. 

So about just ripping apart all of my dreads... Not entirely, just pull them apart so there's still some tangles, and some knotted up hair. I kinda want them to do their own thing, but still have a little control over them. Basically, it'd be just like taking a shortcut, right?

Just wondering if ripping apart my backcombed dreads to let them dread semi-naturally would be a bad idea?

Anyways, here they are: (I'm not on my computer, and I'm not sure this one can handle the insert image box. Ha.)


And here's my old ones.

length of hair after combed out dreads [17 May 2007|07:36pm]
i checked the memories, but couldn't find anything. 
when you comb out your (1 year(+)) dreads, does your hair become shorter, longer, or does it stay the same length?

Lemon juice [17 May 2007|10:46pm]
[ mood | cranky ]

Hey guys, long time no post.  I had a quick question that was not in the memories: Has anyone tried putting squirts of lemon their hair before they go out in the sun to naturally lighten it?  Is that even a good idea?  If so, I was wondering if bees and other insects would be attracted to the sweet taste..

I don't know if I have ever made a profound impact on this community so I'm not sure if any of you will remember me, but I haven't posted photos in almost a year because my camera is broken.. It really sucks
