My mom-in-law has been very sick with cancer, and a particularly bad spell has kept her in the hospital longer than any of us would like. As a Mother's Day surprise, my husband planted her a small garden.
first of all, i am sorry for the text only post- pictures to come soon! okay, down to business. this is my 2nd time with dreads so i know the ropes but i have a question the memories didn't quite answer. i have overdyed hair(eeek!, with natural roots. how much palmrolling should i do? i love to play with them, but i also want to avoid breakage and hindering the developemnet of my babies(is this even possible?)......
My dreads are 14 months today. I'm not much for taking pictures of myself, so #6 is the only one of me. My partner is #1, and his dreads are 19 years old. I thought they were 22, but found out a couple of weeks ago they're a bit younger.
I used to be Gothicmist, but deleted that journal a couple of days ago. Not that I posted much anyway...
it's really weird/cool being the dread expert around here. most of the people i know who do have dreads, are misinformed, or have used/still use wax. so i want to thank this community for being totally awesome! i try to teach people about keeping dreads clean and not putting anything nasty in them. i have had at least 6 friends ask me to help them start/maintenance their dreads.
these are the second set i have done. ( Collapse )
on Saturday my friend Jeff and i went to Peak's Island, and hung out on the beach for a while ( Collapse )
PS my dreads will be 7 months in a couple weeks ( Collapse )
So yeah...one year ago I started my dread journey. I am happy to say I've kept them for this long~ I can't even imagine myself without them now. Anyways Im going to treat myself to some much needed maintenance and a deep cleaning tonight! Time line coming soon-hunting down photos. im the meantime-here is the back of my head. enjoy! ( Collapse )
Ok so I have a day off work and facied an update - yay! My dreads are about 20 months old, and boy they're changing!
About Xmas time I noticed my loops were well, going, and now a few of my thinner dreads still have loops but theyve mostly either flattened down from wet palmrolling or sucked in nearer to the roots.
I did a random photoshoot this morning after yoga hence the "no makeup advertising quicksilver to the max" look. My loose hair is decreasing with time, but i have loads of fuzz behind and around my ears, i usually tuck that in once every 2 or so months and it usually pops back out after a few weeks lol!
