Maintenance!

I helped sugarcoatedlie out by doing some maintenance on her hair before her birthday! I got an awesome beehive hat in exchange, and COOOOOOKIES yum yum yum nom nom nom. If anyone in interested in these skills, I am available for barter for goodies and the like; or money, if you are not crafty lol
We started about 3:30 pm and finished about 2:30 am, with minimal breaks. My roomies went to go see Harry Potter about 10 pm and we were still at it when they came back! They were surprised my hands didn't fall off. They were pretty sore the next day though!

I've had dreadlocks for 16 days.
I love how each of my dreadlocks is taking a different shape, length, consistency.
I love how each time I pass by the mirror, I can look and feel sexy.
I love how the way I take care of my hair is completely different now.
I love knowing that everything I have done for the last few years, and everything I will do henceforth will be woven into my hair.
I love that the mousey brown looks golden now.
I love that I no longer have to spend massive amounts of money on conditioner, just to be able to comb my hair.
I love the fact that I actually feel beautiful.

When Sher asked me "Why Dreads?"
My response was "I needed a change."
My thoughts about my life have evolved significantly since then.
I've had dreads for 16 days.

Anyone in Europe?

Soon me and my guy will have an old city bus we are planning to live in and tour around Europe and stay in some places for a couple of months.

I would like to know if anyone would be interested wanting his or hers dreads fixed or start a complete new set. As my only job will be being a dreadmaker then.

I'm not making appointments yet, but it would be nice to know if anyone would be interested ;-)

Here are some of my examples (site is in dutch) http://www.shrijani-dreads.nl and http://www.myspace.com/shrijani

Life is good.



It's 3 weeks today. So soon? I find myself asking that sometimes.
Anywho, I looked in the memories and couldn't find anything, so I was wondering if someone would answer these related questions. A few of my dreads seem to be getting tangled together around the base. Is this normal? Should I leave them alone, or try to unconnect them? What would happen if I left them alone?

Any help is appreciated.
Much love.
