Yo dude....DAMN. [06 Feb 2009|02:18pm]
Yo, I just sectioned my head. 3 locs per section. Okay...so....alright, I'll do this. Here's how my hair looked before.

Okay....now I'll have pictures up later about me finishing the combining process. But yo...guess how many locs I had in that picture?

I'll even give you the formula that I made!

X (times) Y = Z

X= number of locs in each section [that number being 3]
Y= number of sections [won't tell you yet]

Any guesses?

Special bead [06 Feb 2009|02:24pm]
 THis was the first bead put in my dress after they were a bit older. I told myself that this one bead would stay in y hair until I met my real love. And I have! He's currently living 2,500 miles from me, so I have to mail it. I'm going to take it out and put it on a chain for her.

Does anyone else have any kind of special beads for any reasons?

Permanent dye fading..? [06 Feb 2009|03:19pm]
I'm really sick and really irritable and I'm mad at the situation right now.

I dyed my hair black with red stripes at the ends of my dreads. The black dye was (supposed to be!) permanent and the red dye was just some stuff I got at the drugstore.

Lo and behold the current state!Collapse )

Was it totally foolish of me to expect ~*permanent*~ dye to stick? Has anyone else had problems with their dreads fading to their natural color after being dyed with this kind of dye? Sadly I don't remember what dye I used, something in a box from the drugstore... I *think* it was Revlon's "Natural Black" but I may be wrong.

I am pretty happy with the way the red is holding up, though :-)

extending ashley's dreads [06 Feb 2009|03:39pm]
my friend ashley saw my extensions and decided she wanted them for herself. i made 30 thick dreads and worked them in using the methods explained here. i sell extensions just like these in my etsy and now i'm done plugging.

you will notice an obvious difference in color, as she was planning on ditching the blonde and going dark shortly. it made more sense to do so after the extensions to ensure a perfect blending of color. you'll also see that the extensions are slightly puffy at this point, notably around the joint of the regular dread and the extension. with a few washes, the hair will shrink up and the size will match more to the original dread.

here is a before and after. the before is from approximately two weeks before we attached extensions.

more under the cut.Collapse )

combining thin dreads [06 Feb 2009|06:52pm]
 well i was thinking today that i really wanted thicker dreads. but i think iv waited to long to be able to comb these out and start again.
what would be the best way to combine mine and would it matter if i had rectangular sections?
iv looked through the memories but im still not sure whats the best way especially since i have long loose roots i think one at the back is half dread half root.
oh and their only about 3 weeks to a month old.

Anyone in Toronto? [06 Feb 2009|07:51pm]
Hey everyone. I hope this is okay to post here.

I've been growing my hair out for awhile with the intention of getting dreads. I've wanted to for about three years now, and now the only thing stopping me is money and how I have none. I know of Neko in Toronto but the unfortunate truth is unless she's willing to accept a toonie as payment I'm going to have to look elsewhere.

Is anyone in Toronto willing to help me out? I live right downtown in Res for Uni. I'd love to exchange IMs/etc. with you so you can verify I'm not creepy. Quick info: I'm 19, female, Uni student, poor but I will play a song for you on my ukulele haha.

Thanks for any help and I hope I'll be able to share my progress pictures with you soon :)

Flippy pics and more! [06 Feb 2009|08:37pm]
So my dreads will turn 10 months old on the 11th..well most of the dreads on my head. heh
I figured Im due to post an entry!
I've bleached them and dyed a couple reddish that has faded since. For the most part though Im happy with them. They need some major maintenance but I'll get around to that another day.

so without further ado...here are my pics!
