Boober Fraggle

Funny reason to shave head...

This post isn't about me... but what I heard at work.

There is a guy at work who had long dreads & then suddenly just shaved his head.

His reason for deciding to do is what being stuck in really bad traffic getting annoyed and declaring (whilst driving)... "I hate traffic... I'm cutting my hair"

I thought it was simply hilarious...& had to share with you!

Girl at work, threadwrapping

I worked in a shoe dept (I quit - last day on saturday)and last Thursday this girl came in with dreads to the middle of her back. I usually come up to people and say hi and ask if they need help, so I came over to her and do just that. Then I say, "Oh, and I really like your dreads." She kind of looked at me for a second, because I had mine in a ponytail with a really thick headband, so she probably didn't notice. So I asked how long she's had them. She said 10 years. I showed her mine and she said they looked pretty good for 8 months and then she asked for me to take them out of the ponytail. It was kind of weird, but I did anyway. She was feeling them a little and she asked what I use in them. I said nothing and she praised me, saying, "You got brains. Not like some of these other guys that put all kinds of weird shit on their head." She's also from the Bronx, so add that accent in there. :)
Anyway, she told me that if I wanted to tighten them up, I should threadwrap them all and leave it for like three months. She said she's done it to a couple of her friends' hair, but I was kind of skeptical. What do you all think?


i'm definitely strongly contemplating dreads. to the point that i know that i'm going to do it, but i don't know when. first of all, i don't think i can start them myself. i'd never be able to section well, i don't personally know anybody with dreadlocks, and i don't feel good going to a salon where they usually deal with brushable hair- i sort of go by the "if you dont love their hair/ the hair theyve done, dont let them touch yours!". the salons i know of don't do dreads, and it just doesn't sound like it'd work out too well to do it that way. i'm in edmonton, alberta, and i don't often see dreadheads here. my other worry is my hair legnth. it's layered, and about three inches at the shortest in some places, and 5 or 6 in the longer places. i don't especially want them to be sticking up straight in the air!

i'm ordering jesus plugs at 5/8". i'm majorly stoked for that.

colour change

While I have been added stripes and streaks of various colours/shades to my hair over the past several months, it has remained primarily blonde. Though I love the blonde dearly, I was getting bored. So I dyed my whole head some weird red/orange colour! Hooray!
(Oh, and the dreads will be eleven months old at the end of the month)
