(no subject)

over the course of the past few weeks, i've spent seven or eight hours working on my housemate's dreads. we finally finished at 5am, while watching the parent trap. hell yeah, revisiting childhood!

i'm pretty pleased with the result, as is he. it makes them look at least a year older.

my baby dreadies

Well I've been lurking here for over a year now, occasionally noting here and there, and relgiously reading the memories :) Now I'm finally here with pics of my hair! this is my second set of dreads. I started my first one 14 months ago, and combed them out after just 3 months because i realized I'd made them too thin and they wouldnt stay together very well.

This set is 5 weeks old now. and completely wax and rubberband free! I put them in in 3-5 inch long hair, and they ended up as just little nubs lol. I also chose, after hours of backcombing the hell out of my hair and crocheting so they were really tight, to do a dread perm. I think it was a good choice since my hair is so short, the dreads would have washed right out otherwise. I also think the perm made them look much older than they are. There are a total of 37 on my head right now, however I figure that once my undercut grows out I'll be able to get another 8-10 dreadies out of that. So without further ado,

2 weeks I think?

Please excuse the horrible quality of these pictures. My camera just decided that my rechargeable batteries are no longer sufficient. So I'm stuck with the camera on my Blackberry until I can buy new ones.

How Long?!

Inspired by our very own cottonmouthdn.

I chopped these about 4 years ago from waist length (teacher training what a stress!!) to look a bit tidier. Low and behold, they're getting sat on by other people again!!!

Taken by my marvellous blokie. One on our stairs at home and one taken at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, in the orchid house on our 18 month anniversary. :)
