Sorry to be boring and text only, but... [29 Jun 2008|12:29pm]
[ mood | excited ]

Who else is going to the Life is Good Festival in Boston on the 19th of July? As I was telling Amber (kitty_bangbang) festivals never come to my area, but it just so happens I'll be in Boston that weekend anyway! So my mom and I are going to go :)

Anyone else going to be there? Meetups are always awesome!



While I'm there, my dreads will hit the one month mark.
I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate :)

minty deep clean/tea soak and acv rinse. [29 Jun 2008|02:23pm]
 If I'm entirely honest, I'm not sure what possessed me to do this. 

I had dry/flaky/itchy scalp and possibly quite a lot of build up in my hair. I fancied doing myself a deep clean but I didn't have any tea tree oil (and I'm broke) so I thought "hm, a lot of dread stuff has peppermint in it. I wonder what peppermint tea will do to my hair?" (they sell peppermint tea in our local discount shop for 19p [38 cents]) Anyway it turned out ok so I thought I would share.

I almost feel like a lurker [29 Jun 2008|04:28pm]
because I haven't posted in so long.Collapse )
(Various pictures from the past few months.)
My dreadlocks are almost nine months old.
They've done a bit of shrinking, but I feel like we've come to a standstill.

I did my first dready initiation!Collapse )

For reference: closer to when I 'first started' my dreadies.Collapse )

Love,
Emily

Happiness is Just a Chemical. [29 Jun 2008|09:46pm]
Picture post of my new set of dreads. The others before were... practice, I've decided.

I love them!Collapse )

And, for some added fun....

Pics from my Frolfing adventure!Collapse )

But there ya have it.
Hope you enjoyed. [:


Oh, and my shampoo regiment is 1 week with Avalon Organic's Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Shampoo, and then the next with Head & Shoulders. I rinse my dreads on mondays.
I sometimes dreadball, but I don't know how much I really wanna mess with them this early on, so I just kinda... don't do anything but check the roots sometimes (to keep them seperated of course).

Thanks!
Have a lovely evening.

need an opinion or two (or more [29 Jun 2008|11:05pm]
so, i was very inspired by user; epf and did a faux dread hawk, and i must say i kinda like it

<lj-cut text="sorry that the pic and hawk quality is so bad">









the thing about it is that i think i really like it. i have wanted a mohawk for a while but never had the "testicular fortitude" to get one.

i just wanted to know what you ppl thought, think i could pull it off?

thanks!
