It's been about a year and a half since a brush has come anywhere near my head. Here's a very small fraction of some pictures taken over the last 2 months, including dread art, action shots, and le boyfriend.
Wednesday marked the second birthday of my locks. I'm excited, but also a bit sad. I've been having dreams about cutting them off lately, and I'm not sure how to address them. Truthfully, I'm scared to cut them off. They've become a part of my identity, and I've come to depend on them. They break the ice, start conversations. They're really cool! I have sick locks! I haven't been maintaining them, primarily because I have absolutely no free time to deal with them. They're itchy, and they're getting really messy. I feel silly for being so attached to them, so dependent on them. On the other hand I'm getting pretty sick of people assuming I'm a pot head. But who will I be without my locks? They've held such an important role in the last two years of my life, played such a part in making me who I am. I don't know what to do.
okay, i had my dreads last year for about 2 months, they were great and i was in love with them, but my scalp went nuts. i got so frustrated, and decided to cut them off. biggest regret ever. i was left with a short pixie cut however, it has grown quite a bit since then. my hair is probably about 3 inches long all over. basically, what i'm getting at is that i want my dread babies back! i need some advice about shorter dreads, because i know its gonna be quite a project. when would be a good length to start? any good example photos of shorter caucasian locks? help me out! thanks all. :o]
Thank you all so much for your honest and wonderful comments! I've been pondering and bouncing this cutting the dreads possibility off a lot of people today, and I talked with my parents this evening. My mom said my dad would be really disappointed, and low and behold, he was. They talked me out of it. I love my parents. Instead, I'm going to tidy them up and give them a nice dye job, and go from there.
Again, thank you all! I think what I really need is just to spend more time around here!
