maintenance session: martin [05 Mar 2009|11:22am]
hey guys!

i did maintenance on martin's 3 year old dreads this week. he had some really huge clumps of loose hair at the scalp, and wanted them cleaned up. he wanted a more professional look as he's hoping to go into the field of medicine. he even brought his organic chemistry books over to study!

he also had a few dreads that were on the verge of falling out from weak spots. he had previously attempted to fix them by flipping one dread through the root of another and trying to grow them out that way. this creates an even worse weak spot, so i repaired the damage and connected the smaller dreads to nearby fatter ones. he wanted the dreads to grow out together at the roots, but maintain their individual ends, so i gave him the forked dread look.


BEFORE:

more befores and plenty of afters.Collapse )

This is sort of a um, horribly incomplete timeline, from a wishy-washy member.
So, without further ado, I bring you:
CAROLINE'S FAVORITE MOMENTS OF HAVING DREADS, 2008-09 EDITION.

CURIOUS.Collapse )

[ mood | happy ]

was doing some (crappy) maintenance on my dreads last night. made two more from the HUGE chunks that are just loose hair, that kinda never dreaded..lame. ANYWAY my bf, Liam, was watching me and was FASCINATED. jokes. So I said to him "want one?" and he was like, "Hell yes!".

In a nutshell he now has three TINY teeny weeny dreads at the back of his head. PLEASE don't ask how I managed to dread hair that is about 3 inches long, maybe 2. but they are quite thick, and he has very very good dreading hair (if there is such a thing).
I was genuinely so jealous of them and i will post pictures. I miss my dread babies.
He looks ridiculous by the way, and I will try to convince him to do all of his hair. I tried my best for a dreadhawk, but to no avail...

that was long. sorry. x

the GUDU ROMANCE POST. [05 Mar 2009|10:46pm]
ok guys! here's the idea. if you're single & don't want to be, comment here with your city & state (or country, or whatever's reasonable for your locale). much like with the dread ages post, i'll keep a list here of folks, & you can use it to find nearby single gudu members' journals. this post will be in the memories under "Other Users in Your Area".

i'm not concerning myself with your gender, degree of queerness, age, et cetera - if i can point you at the local singles, y'all can figure out the rest.

let's see if we can make more matches like:
eggplantman + xseaxgypsyx
ohnoooooooo + amyakieran
sensibleken + nollipop
walklikethunder + lukewarm
& myself + gorthok. yay!

[ mood | awake ]

thought it was interesting (but annoying, the editing that is), he started following me on my twitter and that was how i found the video, i don't even know if this has been posted here or not yet. if it is an old hat, i'm sorry :| and i aint trying to stir the great wax or no wax debate. i dont use wax so, whatever. i have used it and didn't like it. yeah.
