To Henna or not to Henna? My dreads are just under two years.
I bleached + dyed my hair about a year ago, and want to Henna over it using Lush's Henna. The ingredients are:
Fair Trade Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Indigo Henna (Indigofera Tintctoria), Red Henna (Lawsonia inermis), Ground Coffee, Nettle Powder (Urtica dioica), Irish Moss Powder (Chondrus crispus), Clove Bud Oil (Eugenia caryophyllus), *Citral, *Eugenol, *Geraniol, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume.

I know -nothing- about hairdye, and did check the memories but it didn't super answer my question, which is- will the Henna fry my hair/turn it super green? Would I be better off just buying 2 boxes of Chocolate Brown hair dye and using that instead?

so today as I got to my doorstep this dude ran up to me, panting, and asked me to sell him some "dank".
When I said "uhh sorry, I don't do that" he replied "but you're dreads!" (plural because Josh happened to be standing there)
Because yes, my entire being is defined by a hairstyle.
Even if I did sell stuff I wouldnt sell to some rando who chased me down the street.


and just for funsies

EDIT: okay im getting tired of replying to the numerous comments about my dreads so heres the deal. no, they arent dirty, my hair IS NOT naturally black/purple silly kids, its called ROOTS. also, the reason they look waxy sort of is because theres flash in that one pic and black hair is very reflective. no, i dont use wax. not now, not ever. righty-ooooo.

Grad dreads

I had my highschool commencement on Friday.  I hated it :)
It seemed really strange... I'm in uni now and high school seems like something so far away - I haven't been there for almost 5 months.

Akward moment number one:  The slightly too-lengthy handshake and smile so that my dad could get a picture

I know that detail-wise these pics are not very good. It's my hope that soon I'll have ones that are a bit better :)
