Hi there guys and gals, I've been meaning to do this for awhile now, I figured now was as good a time as any seeing as how my dreads are 6 or 7(depending how you look at it) months old this last sunday. Anyways, I am Jonny and here's my story :p
Let's see.. I started my dreads last September, but did them slowly over a months time. I finished them oct 23rd which is my birthday. I have alot of game dreads, a few movie dreads and then some epic dreads. Most noted would have to be my "knocked up dread" which I got while watching the movie and happens to be my fattest and tightest dread, which wasn't planned, hence the name.
I am wax free, decided to go that route after reading through the memories for a month or two before I started my set :D
So, to be on the theme of things atm here's an oldish pic of me with my cat Nuegious the 2nd(or nuege for short)
over spring break i went to visit with several of my friends from brooklyn and queens. much adventuring and fun was had, in the forms of giant dinosaurs, karaoke, and ( Collapse ) after spring break, i moved into my new apartment, and then proceeded to do ( Collapse )
results achieved with lishd's bleaching/dyeing instructions. i'm very pleased with the outcome; i feel it's a color more aligned with my attitude and personality of late. i originally was planning to go for a more natural type of red, but i went for the more vivid choice. the color in some of the last pictures is rather orange-y looking, but in person, it's still pretty reddish. after my hair has had a chance to recover, i'm going to do the tips in a dark brown.
SMS from my aunt: You need to cut those dreads of! My five year old daughter won’t let me brush her hair because she wants to look like her auntie. But I am not the kind of person to have a kid with dreads, even if I think it looks cool.
SMS from me: I won’t cut them, but I can adopt her, because I am the kind of person to have a kid with dreads!
SMS from my aunt: She is a five year old with the temper of a teenager, and I must admit that sometimes it would be nice to have her gone for a while. However, she loves her mum really much these days, so now she lets me brush her hair.
Hello dearies! What do you think about dready beards? Today at the store one of my customers had a bi-dreaded beard. It was... interesting. They looked clean, and when I asked how old they were, he estimated around four years. They seemed to be at least a foot and a half and maybe like a quarter in diameter. It looked at his beanie'd head and there definitely weren't any cousins of the beard up there. My mum - who adamantly hates dreads - was visiting me and was in line behind this guy. I asked DreadyBeardMan about his set and I could see Mum grimace. She totally tensed up visibly enough to be seen from the corner of my eye. I really liked the look of this guy though. He had great piercings, a glowing personality, and he seemed really, very cool. So I was wondering, have you ever had dreads in your beard? Would you (assuming you could)? What do you think about them? At first I was like, huh, interesting. ...interesting and cool! And then I got to thinking that they're not that much different from head dreads. And maybe they're easier to auto-maintain. Would they get in the way of eating? Can you sling them o'er your shoulder, can you tie 'em in a bow? Would they get in the way of peeing? Alas... I will never know from personal experience. Why don't girls get beards???
