i've had a couple of interesting hair clients this month. click each name for a pictorial.

loren had 76 young dreads, which were too much upkeep and too skinny for him. i combined the majority of them for him. additionally, loren had gone twice to a place that wrapped string around the base of each lock, which is a false maintenance that damages dread development. in the pics on my site, you can clearly see the weak spots caused by the tight banding. fortunately, i was able to rectify many of these areas through the combination technique i invented.

marley's friends had tried to start dreads on her 3 months ago, but with no planning and no experience. she hadn't touched them since they were started. i first had to separate out the dread masses which had grown into huge tangles at her scalp, then i sectioned & created new locks from the rest of her hair.

i'm playing around with the idea of getting one of my roommates acquaintences who's a photojournalist student to do a photoshoot with me... i'm tired of taking bad pictures, lol. plus, i'd really like to have some better quality documentation of my dreads for sentimental reasons. iknow there's a number of folks on here who actually model, but have any of you dreadheads arranged a photoshoot for your own sake? do tell, if so.
