Timeline slide show (May 2006-Oct. 2007)

I've had the worst time with the stringy ends. I work on them and then they fall out, but I think they're finally starting to take. I swim a lot so they're washed often. They're finally almost back to the length they started at. I had them backcombed at a salon. Have done everything else myself - palmrolling, twisting, etc.

(no subject)

I dyed maybe a quarter of my dreads last night. I did the whole bleach/dye thing following lish's tutorial plus some of my past knowledge. I couldn't find SFX brand dye ANYWHERE. So I settled for what I always used in the past...Beyond Zone. It's supposed to be "wild red" but its more of a "wild red leaning towards pink". this is interesting to me, considering I dyed them using the same times that I used to use in normal hair...and it really did turn red in the past. I'm happy with it though anyways. It's a little bit messy, (maybe only aparent to me) but I wanted to report my success!

has anyone used beyond zone before on dreads?

New pictures

My boy took some new pictures of me and my dreads the other day, here they are. I dyed my dreads black but there is still some blue pink purple ect. mixed in.

My dreads are about six months old? They are still really messy, I think because I dyed them a lot when they were young and because I wear them tied back a lot. so yup.
