I took this picture in December of 2007 and finally got around to putting it on a page for my "Me Album." It's got some dreads in it, so I thought I'd share it here. I use my scrapbooking as a means of creative therapy at times, so that's what I did with this page.

And here's my journaling since it's kind of hard to read:

hey all. so i'm looking to do some treatment on my hair b/c well i've overbleached it and it's scratchy and sad and very very dry.

i was looking at lush's website. has anyone ever used the H'suan Wen Hua Hair Treatment?  or any of those things they look interesting, and I love lush's products so I thought I might try it.

also un hair related, has anyone use lush's deodorants? or any other natural deodorant that's good. i'm useing nature's gate summer spice and while i love the smell it doesn't always do the job hahha. anyways.

so it's not all text:

 So, last night, I finally gave in and started dreads in my "beautiful and smooth curly hair" (my mother's words). I now have seven baby dreads along the nape. I'm very pleased with them and I'm gonna work on forming more after I update this post!

Happy dreading, everybody. You all are lovely people and really motiviated me to finally get a start on my babies.

Hi guys, you may have seen my username around in the past (which I sort of find embarassing - I was 13 I believe when I made this account). I'm just here to formally introduce myself, and the birth of my very first dreadlock!

My name is Skylar, I'm from the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. I'm nearly 16 years old, and I have wanted a set of dreadlocks of my own since I was a little girl in primary school. It was just a matter of when. I talked it over with my parents last year, and they were all for it. Now that my hair is long enough, and I am ready, I am just beginning to indulge in the land of dreads! I have read the memories on several occasions over the past year or so, and I would like to say that I am ready for dreads!

I created my first one just minutes ago, and I feel pretty happy. I've been smiling while walking around the house feeling like I'm straight out of whoville. I'd like to ask you all your opinions - does it look tight enough to you?

PS. My hair is in a pony tail, but it is layered, and so I'm interested as to how they will fall!

Anyways, it is my spring break as of today, and so I have just over two weeks before school is back in. I'm sure that within a few days I will have a full head. :)

I'm glad to finally be able to post with pictures and tales of my own! Take care y'all.
