boredom=vanity=another timeline [18 Mar 2009|03:36am]
i made a somewhat accurate timeline of my dreads, the youngest of which are just about to turn one, the oldest of which are now sixteen months old. Also, i have been in a wrist brace since last week. it's terribly annoying, because i keep getting velcro'ed to my hair. The only perk is that i have been forced to wear my hair down, which i never usually do. but im starting to like it... or at least accept that my hair is B.I.G.

"super lice" [18 Mar 2009|09:07am]
I thought I'd post this as an FYI, as headlice tend to be even more of an issue for dreadheads.

9 months and new color. [18 Mar 2009|09:20am]
[ mood | calm ]


My baby dreadies recently turned 9 months on the 10th and I finally got them (mostly) back to blonde. I work in Ellicot City, MD and there's a salon called Envy, one of the girls there does my mom's and sister's hair and I'd been talking to her about if she had any experience with dreadlocks. She didn't really but I talked to her and told her about this community and let her do some dread maintanance for me along with bleaching them for me.

Two posts in two days? AMAZING! [18 Mar 2009|12:50pm]
I just had the most interesting experience.

I was at the gas station, buying a drink for my husband and I and I noticed there was an older black woman in there, just behind me with her hair somewhat undone and looking a bit of a mess, but otherwise conventional (relaxed, but short, damaged, and looking like she tried to pull it back but just let the shorter hairs stick up and out in all directions, etc.)

I head out to the car and as I'm starting to get in, she walks up to me and says "Excuse me, but can I give you my business card in my car? I own a hair shop down the street."

Now Tucson, AZ is not a huge town by my standards, since I grew up in Philly. And it's a college town to boot. I've seen other dreadlocked people in the streets, but no other *black* people with thick, backcombed dreads like mine. Whatever, dreads are dreads, right?

I looked at the woman and said "Uhm....you can, but I have dreads," and I tugged on one. "And I'm not taking them out...so.."

So nodded, got in her car and drove off.

Now I wonder what made her think *my* hair was such a mess that I needed a beautician who couldn't keep her own hair straight.

Interesting indeed. I can't wait to return to Philly. At least there I have friends who can point and laugh at people's collective prejudices with me.

I had a lot of fun with photobucket today! [18 Mar 2009|04:46pm]
I loves my hair so much. I must have become extremely vain over my dreads because I didn't use to take so many pictures of myself XD [Yeah, I know you probably saw most of these already but so what? ;p]



Hopefully a slide-show only counts as one picture...Collapse )

2 1/2 weeks [18 Mar 2009|06:43pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

It's been 2 1/2 weeks and they're going strong. They've been washed twice and none of them have come out. Woot. I've been busy making lots of hats and dreadbands. You can see my hats on etsy since a few people were interested from the last time I posted.

And here's a pic from today before I went to the park.

Dread Pics. [18 Mar 2009|09:33pm]
I love this one, the light was shining through the blinds and made it look like I have a cool raccoon dreadie!



I went to an Oscar party a while back and put my hair up all pretty.

Click here to see, I'm very happy with how it came out!Collapse )

I just got a bunch of pictures from a friend of mine, this one is from this past August.
Another friend and I have been trading maintenance, I have hella loose hairs all over my head, I feel like its a little bit hopeless, but we're trying a little.
Regardless of the loose hairs, my dreads are five and a half, and I love them just the way they are.
