i know this is long winded; i apologize, but i feel that an explanation is necessary.

since i cant see Lish until September, im hoping to find someone in the meantime to make my locks look a little bit tidier.
my hair refuses to tangle and ive had to backcomb my hair SEVERAL times in the past 4 months and all ive ended up with is about an inch to 2 inches of dreaded roots and completely soft and untangled brushable hair all the way to the tips.
i dont really mind the loose ends, but theres so much undreaded hair that my mother has started to complain about how unruly i look.
im desperately in need of someone elses help, since my mom (as much as i love her) is absolutely horrendous at any sort of backcombing or palm rolling and its very difficult for me to work on my own hair.
i have been searching for a good 2 weeks to find a salon with experience in dreadlocks within a 20 mile radius of my house as my only means of transportation is a rickety orange beach cruiser. the only hairdresser i could find seems a little questionable in her knowledge.

the hairdresser wants to do some ripping and twisting and is very adamant about putting some product in my hair. after very politely discouraging her from putting wax anywhere near my head, we finally decided on aloe.
after ripping and twisting, she wants to put my hair in knots, similar to bantu knots, for about a week in hopes theyll hold together. im not sure how good of an idea this is. any opinions?
i would much prefer finding someone in my area (southern california) who is willing to help me to keep my locks together. im hoping someone with experience in crocheting, since ive found its impossible for me to do on myself.

thank you for your time and patience.
i wish you all a wonderful day.

Shampoo Endorsement?

I went to see a new doctor this morning. No biggie, no worries. Standard stuff. He gave me a once-over and basically decided I was gonna live quite a bit longer.

Because, as you know, only the good die young, and, since I'm getting a bit older, I gotta check in with medical people from time to time.

On the weird side of things, the doctor was fascinated by my hair... to the point where he asked if he could take a picture of it. Apparently he is tight with some bigwigs at a shampoo company and seems to think they'd wanna use me to endorse their product. I think he's probably out of his fucking mind, because most people use shampoo for the express purpose of getting hair to NOT look like mine.

But, whatever. He has the pictures. Let him do the legwork. If they're interested, I'm sure they'll say something. That'd be bizarre. Maybe they'd want me for the "before" picture or something.

Weird shit.

Lock and Key

Today I made a very important addition to my locks :D

It's a key.. a handcuff key to be exact, and it's held in with a lock of my girlfriends hair that she saved for me. I am so full of squee, and now I have a bit of her and her naughty spirit with me always.
