my one dread.

sometime in the beginning of june i decided to back comb a lock of hair.
i did, and then i had my very own, first, baby dread.
i cared for it, making sure to not get conditioner in it.
washed it a couple of times with this residue free shampoo i got from my local heath food store.
i didnt use any rubber bands
and i didnt use any goo.
just back combing
palm rolling
and some crocheting here and there.
im going to admit that i did flip the roots a couple times
in the first month or so... but as soon as i found out
that it wasnt really the preferred method, i tried to unflip
what had been flipped...
i think it is better now.
ive been rubbing the root in a clockwise motion and its
gotten a lot tighter this week.
im so happy i took the time to read the memories.

i hope that was fun to look at. :) i love the change in color i have now. and even though they technically already got their official birthday present, as a belated gift my dreads are getting an all-expenses paid visit to see one miss lish in october. :D so expect more pictures soon!
