long times.

a picture because i had good light and a new phone.

i'm really noticing some length, it's so bizzare because my dreads will be 2 years (since the last brush technically.) in may.
and my hair was SO FRIGGIN long when i started them.

i find that my "neglect" dreads are taking longer to actually grow than the ones that i made.

but they were like, chin length 5 months ago, and now they touch my shoulders!

i also need to do some maint. i've got lots of fly away fuzzies, and a tiny tiny tiny baby dread on my nape. haha.
bear suit

Speaking of Flipping.

I took this pic just because I wanted to get in on the flippy goodness.
This is the best I could do.

As others have reported, it is not easy to get a dread flip pic when taking pics by oneself. Stupid timer. I was trying to catch a shot while they were sticking straight up. I was full of fail.


Soo its been 6 months?! What!!?? I never in my life thought I would have them this long, well I mean I wanted them to stick around for a very long time but going through some depression a little slip with my anxiety attacks I started to think of getting rid of my dreadlings. Well I am SUPER stoked to say that I did not get rid of them!! They keep growing on me and I love them more and more everyday. I hope to have them for a VERY LONG time. And I must say I think they have come a long way since I first started them. :)

Enjoy the recent pictures of them!!

I'd used to getting negative comments about my appearance, especially from snooty people when I shop in Headingley. But this one cheered me up.

Walking home with a bag full of fruit and veg, a delivery van pulled up and a black dready guy got out of the back, unloading crates of milk and eggs.

Guy: (Smiles) Hey! Bob Marley!
Me: (Rolls eyes) Says you!

At this point we both cracked up and nearly pissed ourselves laughing at each other.

I threw him an apple and resisted the urge to sing "Ernie the fastest milkman in the west" at him, Benny Hill style. :D
