New member, New dreads

I just joined. I have been working on my dreads for a couple of months. I stopped brushing my hair out of laziness and found about 4 dreads had formed. So I let it be and ended up with a terrible rats nest that was painful to de-tangle. Over the last several weeks I have been slowly forming the rest of my head in dreads. Tonight I finished. I have some wonderful, tight dreads while the rest (the majority) are just beginning. Some are wrapped in embroidery floss because they were my first dreads and I want to protect then from being consumed by the rest of my head. Many have been tied off at the roots because that is where my hair likes to tangle most and I don't want another painful, rats nest experience. I'll keep posting as they progress.

Hello my pretties!

I have been admiring everyone else's beautiful dreads for a couple of months now so I thought I might aswell give this a try. 
<lj-cut text = My dreddies>

This is at Evolve Festival....for those who dont know its a 3 day long  music festival in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. My dreads are probably 4 months or so in this picture.


This is on my birthday in August. I bleached my dreads and was in the process of redying them. 

:D

(no subject)

I have about a million pictures from various events.... so this post is VERY IMAGE HEAVY!!!

I'll get you started with a little teaser.... I threw a big Dia De Los Muertos Fiesta at my house on Friday and this is from that...

I love embroidery floss!

Okay so here is the latest addition. I have been obsessed with embroidery floss for over a year now. I love it because it is easy to use, strong, colorful, and not wool. Wool doesn't work for me, I'm vegan. So I rock the embroidery floss. I started off just sewing with it and now It has found its way into my hair. This was fun.
