bandu knots take 2 [03 Apr 2009|08:38am]

today i'm taking a risk and rocking the bandu knots to work. i work in a very corporate office (i actually work for the city) so my co-workers are blown away by my dreads. they like them, but they're always asking me ridiculous questions about maintaining them and such. so i'm sure today's style will confuse the hell out of them..."oh my gawd! did you cut your hair?! how do you wash it like that?" haaa

Neglect [03 Apr 2009|10:02am]

Since dreads are the natural state of hair I figured I'd attempt to get them 'naturally' through the neglect method. I've not brushed for about 2 weeks and I don't think I have a single knot in my hair ... it's very fine so I know I'm in for a long journey if I stick with neglect. I did my homework, and I didn't see much in the memories about this, so here goes:
How does neglect work, I mean what will happen to my hair during the whole process? Will my hair section itself and then knot up or what.
Is there anything I should or shouldn't do to help the process out? I'm using Dr. B's shampoo and not brushing, but haven't changed anything other than that.

Hello strangers... [03 Apr 2009|11:49am]
I've been gone for a while, I'm sorry about that. Lots of things have been goin on that have affected me in many ways and meant that the internet has been pretty far down the list of priorities. However, I thought a little update was in order, as I've been busy!

Magazine Cover

Just thought I'd share the cover of this month's Professional Photographer magazine. It is a beautiful photograph by Carrie Sandoval that made me smile and I thought many of you would appreciate it.

six month time line [03 Apr 2009|08:20pm]
My dreads are six months (seven on the 15th of April!) so I thought maybe I'd do a time line. They have really grown and changed over the last six months and I've had some MAJOR shrinkage. On to the photos (they are very large BEWARE!)

picsCollapse )

Also getting my first tattoo on Tuesday (and yes Lish I've read your aftercare instructions)

A big difference from Day One to Day... Year and just over a month. [03 Apr 2009|10:41pm]
[ mood | happy ]

And boy have they changed so freaking much. I love it - they look like a completely different set of dreads, I think.

Here's what I looked like before.

A drastic difference is shownCollapse )
