a very delayed update. (i hope you like pictures) [24 Jan 2008|06:57am]
so i had my dreads done for me a year and five months ago. i was waiting until i did a full crocheting/felting session to update, but i don't seem to be so diligent with grooming anymore.

although i absolutely hate hate hate how this picture makes my vertical labret out of line with my philtrum piercing. if i'm not making a face like that, it lines up alot better.

i'm working on a timeline, but it's hard to find pictures from the first few years. i was living on the road a lot then, and didn't have a camera much less a computer.

here's a sample:

Would you ever let your dreads get this long?

I think it's amazing.

Anyway, some new pictures of my locks! HereCollapse )

finally, something! [24 Jan 2008|02:10pm]
Okay, so besides a ton of rediculous computer problems and not having a camera right now, I've finally made it up to posting here!
I really dig this community and I've been wanting to get some pictures up.
Heres my nappy babies at 1 year 4 months, I've gotten around to cleaning up some loose hairs, but not many

    If I knew how to do a sweet hyperlink to more pictures, I would, but I don't.

a history of dreadlocks [24 Jan 2008|02:16pm]
i found this while looking for pictures of crazy long dreadlocks... http://www.answers.com/topic/dreadlocks ... it gives a very good history of dreadlocks, and anyone with any questions about the origins or beliefs behind dreadlocks should read it.

Dreadhawk styling [24 Jan 2008|02:25pm]
Since my dreads are small I thought about spiking them but I didnt want to stick anything like glue or gel in my hair so I made spikes by rubber banding the tips. I only had the bands in for the day, I didnt want to mess up the baby dreadlets forming.

sample foto:

I figured we should have more pictures and examples of dreadhawks being styled in some way.

Lush products for UK dreadheads [24 Jan 2008|03:43pm]
Popped into my local Lush recently and a nice chap recommended a couple products for dreads: Soak and Float shampoo bar, and Breath of Fresh Air spray toner (between washes). Used both and they're absolutely wonderful; the shampoo bar was just fantastic. So heads up to UK dreadies! :)

Cut off my 10 month old dreads a couple days ago. I think it was a smart move.

Just wondering. [24 Jan 2008|05:35pm]
 Just out of curiostiy I was wondering if anyone here had their dreads for a cultural reaso, such as being a Rasta or something. 

Sorry for bothering you guys, I was just interested to know.

wool and dreads.... [24 Jan 2008|08:41pm]
[ mood | thoughtful ]

Ok so recently I became inspired by a dreadhead I saw in town her BEAUTIFUL dreads were down to her waist and some she'd wrapped with wool in the most awesome colours. I searched the memories but could only find entries about extending dreads with wool or felting wool into your dreads but I was wondering whether anybody here had wrapped their dreads, if so  has wool wrapped around dreads hindered or helped? Any information  volunteered on the subject would be greatly appreciated and a thousand apologies if I missed it in the memories. Also expect a post soon demonstrating the effects of felting my dreads

do you want to see?Collapse )

thanks so much all you dreadies, non-but-previously-or-almost-dreadies; keep on rock'n the locks.

Surprizing. [24 Jan 2008|10:14pm]
So since I've gotten my dreads two weeks ago, I've always worn them back at work to be a little more neat for the customers. Not a lot of people really comment on them, but today and elderly lady asked me to find something for her. When I found it, and reached down to get it for her, she said "I love you're hair, it's gorgeous." I thanked her for the comment, but it didn't really strike me as odd until later on in the night when I thought about it.

I never expected one of the nicest comments to come from an age group who are usually quite conservative.

Does anyone else get compliments from people you don't expect?

Either way, later.
