9 Months [05 May 2009|08:59am]
Yesterday was nine months since the last time I brushed my hair : )
I never actually get around to posting updates on the day, so one day off isn't bad!

whole lot o' knotsCollapse )

Sorry for the surplus of hair shots and the lack of anything else in my pictures.  My hair has been one of the only things I've been really happy with lately; the stress of finals has not been helping that either!

old & new. [05 May 2009|03:50pm]
Due to the positive feedback that I received regarding my locks in my first post, I figured that I would post some more pics. Some of them old, and some more recent ones... :)

yes.. again.. [05 May 2009|06:57pm]
I know I posted not too long ago.. but my dreads are a year old as of today I believe? I redyed the black in my hair the other day. It's too dark for my taste but it will be okay.

I am also excited that my ears are finally an inch and I got my clear plugs in today, and last night I tattooed my fingers.

opinions. [05 May 2009|11:09pm]
which do you guys prefer: backcombed or naturally formed dreads?

i'm doing it via neglect for a few reasons. 1. it's free! nothing to do but rip apart knots for the next 10 months. 2. i think they have more character than backcombed dreads. every dread will form in its on way and have it's own "personality" if you will. and 3. i'm just excited to watch them form over the months. it's been two weeks tomorrow, and i already have like, 9 "dreads" on one side of my head, 4 on the other, and 2 in the back. (by "dreads" i mean there's little knots in the middle of the hair i sectioned :D)

now...my boyfriend isn't to thrilled about my natural dreadies..he looked up some pictures of other people's dreads that were still forming, and of course they get a little crazy as they mature. but now he's freakin out telling me my hair's gonna look like shit. now, for me, i could care less what people think of my hair. but i'd always have that awkward feeling being around him when my hair was wild.

so. my question. should i just brush em out and backcomb? they would be more maintained, but it totally takes away the expierence for me...in your own opinion, which do you think is the "better" choice and why?
