bangs?

it's day 4 on neglect. i'm trying to decide if i should have bangs with my dreads. it'd probably be a lot easier without them. but i hate my forehead =\. suggestions?

new growth

i have noticed that as my dreads grow the part closest to my head is dreaded significantly thinner and tighter then the rest of the length of my dreads. does anyone else have this? will they eventually fatten and even out? is it weak spots forming? or the weight of my dreads? thanks for any advice!

3 months TODAY!

One thing, Maybe two..

first, the boyfreind.. weve been together for 6 years. during my first set of dreads he would be in a drunken stupor and say shit to me like "get you hippy ass away from me, go take a shower or something" has two dreads now. dick. anyway I love him so fuck him


on to the dreads and number two short story.. happened to me at work, has more to do with body mods then dreads though

Dreaded Sleep Out!

Last Thursday there was a sleep out at my school in an attempt to raise awareness about homelessness. A bunch of us took cardboard boxes and laid them out in the most public area of campus where we would be most visible. It was an interesting experience (though we realized that most homeless people don't use sleeping bags), but the only realistic homeless thing which occurred was us being woken up and kicked out at 7 the next morning. Apparently a congresswoman was coming to speak at the school and the podium had to go right where a bunch of us were sleeping.
My roommate, Jordan, and I had a good, dreaded, time however.

whoo, it's been a while.

so i sadly cut my darlings off in january 08.

HOWEVER, they're back! got them done again in february. (no photos yet. they're still babies so they look pretty silly. going to do some tightening when i get the time).

anyways, i was hoping to hear from you guys...

i have a BEAUTIFUL stetson (size 7 5/8.. yes, i have a big head). however, with my baby dreadies, it won't fit properly- i think i'll barely fit a size 8!
(for any of you that know hats, anyways...) and i can only imagine how much more difficult it'd be to try to fit it over mature dreads.

i would have no qualms about cutting out the fitting band inside to see if it helps. i have no idea if anyone else tried this before, though- does the remnants of the band cut up your scalp or anything?

i just have no idea how to approach this, as it's already pretty much impossible to find a decent hat in a size 8. i suppose a crushable felt had would work better, but.. well, too late for that since i already have the hat. :)

i found some new shots of my first [backcombed] and 2nd [comb free] sets. first set is seven months i believe. and 2nd is 18 months from cutting off the first set.
