dreadhawk

dread ages!

hey guys. i had an idea to compile a list of start dates of everyone's dreads. it's fun to watch dreads the same age as yours mature, & to see how they're doing in relation to your own set.

please only update if your dreads are at least 6 months old. this project has become huge & i'm a bit tired of updating with brand new sets. :)

please respond with the month & year you started your current set of dreads. for those who began over multiple months, choose the month where the bulk of your dreads were started. for those with "natural" sets, use whatever you like - the day you stopped brushing, the day you really started to notice change, whatever. i'll update this post with a big compiled list, & i'll toss it into the memories under "Age of Dreadlocks".

(no subject)

i checked the memories, and i found some stuff on locking tips, but.. i don't like the look of rounded tips, and lately i've noticed that a few of mine have started rounding off at the tips. what's the best way to undo this? can it even be undone?
thanks!

three years!

my dreads are three years old this month! i had originally planned to do something exciting to celebrate, like dying them something more vivid than the4 red-orange/stripes i've been rockin' for a few months now. i did end up dyeing them, but not at all like what i'd imagined...

and that's that. :)
happy birthmonth dreads!

Shake-Shake-Shake It

Today when I was leaving Chemistry my head felt hot so I shook it around a little.  These senior guys walked past and one of them said, "Yeah, shake those dreads."

i just thought it was a fun thing to share. 

:]

One month!

So when I made my dreads last month, I put an event in my calendar for one month later, I woke up today and was like HOLY SHIT.  The one month definitely snuck up on me : )

here's a few pics after a month of love with my dreads!

ah!  way too many pics for just a month, I pity you all and apologize in advance if I post a timeline at 1 year!!!! : P

oye, and I've recently developed noticeable dandruff -_-  Just finished re-reading that section in the memories, eventually I'll run to walmart to get some t-gel or something... but I wanted to mention that I have noticed you guys use the term 'mashed potato' textured dandruff... I understand what you mean now!  but it's only when I get out of the shower, it dries up after .. I can't imagine having it more than that, it drove me crazy!
