Righto, well, I'm finally in the USA... have been to NYC, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and am at present in Denver! Vegas and LA to go, but I thought I'd post a few pics of my hair while I get a chance :)

BW Dreads

Nine 1/2 Months

Not much change since the last time I took photos of them. Though it is funny to see how much a few of them have shrunk. They are like little dready nubbins, especially compared to my bra band length brushable hair.

I have never flipped my dreads through their roots but for some reason one little guy is split at the root as if I had. Not sure why it decided to grow that way but I'm sure it will be fine in time. Probably just happened because the hair is more sparse and spread out in that section. It looks almost like two tiny dreadlings combined themselves but that isn't it, either. Maybe one of these days I'll do some maintenance and grab some of the loose hairs from the area to fill in the naked spot. Who knows. I'm not really worried about it. :)

Starting from scratch...

So Friday I had my 3rd insanely bad allergic reaction to conditioner. Fine. Whatever. Perfect excuse to start the dreads I was already planning anyway. I wanted to go the route of letting them form themselves sometime when my hair was a little longer, but here we go. I haven't brushed my hair since it grew in anyway, but the siliconey bad crap kept knots from forming/staying until now.

I bring you...Collapse )

I promised pictures from my vacation to Mexico. I was on the Mayan Riviera near Playa del Carmen. Everywhere I went (especially in the town) people were shouting "Rasta!" at me and on some occasions trying to sell me drugs. I only met one other dreaded person and he was staying at my resort! Shout out to Alejandro from Spain :) 
Our catamaran tour stopped at an estuary (fresh/saltwater mix) to swim...

I'm a returning member to live journal and new member here. I've been doing a lot of research on dreadlocks because I am seriously wanting to start some. I'm from West Virginia so anyone in that area who could help would definitely be appreciated. I've seen this group mentioned on other sites, so I decided this would be a great place to start.
