combed out & missing them!

Just after two months I combed them out. It was a surprise to find myself combing them out, but after a shower one day, I was so frustrated with the amount of hair that was combing itself out even after all the hours I would spend palm rolling and stuff. When I put it in a ponytail, the whole bunch of hair looked combed out....powerful showerhead maybe?? I was so tired of palm rolling and tending to all 70 of those (which took eight hours. more knotted than I gave them credit for.) I was way too impatient and should have just crocheted a bunch of them together to cut the number in half

Anyway I miss them so bad and need them and am mentally planning for the next bunch.
Fewer larger ones, my natural hair color, and band up the ends.

Watching this community is so inspiring, thanks for all the amazing photos and stories :)

i haven't been on here in ages! my dreads are neeeeearly 2 years old now and i started to brush them out last week and then realised i loved them too much to part with them just yet.

anyway here is me being an extreme drunkster, but you can see how long they are getting, and also the bluey purple ones i've sewn into them!

hey guys, new new new am i.

I've been letting my dreads form naturally for the past 2 months, but I'm considering backcombing the rest of my hair, being I've twelve nice-sized suckers now which keep wanting to gobble up more and more of my hair.

but yea, I was just wondering if you kids could post some pictures of your naturally-formed babes, for those of you who've got em! I love how different each can be (and sometimes, totally despise [that being directed to the 6-inch nub of dread amongst the rest of my 12-inch darlings.])

thanks in advance!

I'm having a really bad hair day. Instead of combing them out (plan a) or cutting them shorter (plan b) I decided to look for some new hairstyles, because I'm bored with the way it looks right now. Besides that, I'm curious..

How do you wear your dreads? (loose, tied back, pigtails.. tell me! post pictures if you want to.)
