Hello GUDU!I have been lurking for some time now, I feel that it is time that I finally made a post. I stopped brushing my hair a little over a week ago. I only wash my hair with residue free shampoo and ever since I started doing that my hair instantly knotted up. I rip and twisted all of them then palmed rolled, just so they have a guided to follow, I kinda wanted the more natural look to my dreads so I didn't section my hair or anything, I just let it do its thing for the past week, and yesterday was the first time I separated the roots and palmed rolled. Today I hardly have touched them, I have to keep reminding my self that if I give them too much maintenance they will become weak! so I will let them free! I love them, I couldn't be happier. They don't even look nice, but just to know what they are going to be excites me!
This is also my first time using LJcut so if I mess up, I am super sorry!

Loose hairs at hairline [19 Dec 2009|04:04pm]
[ mood | cold ]

I had posted a week or two ago about this, and all the very short loose hairs that have just recently cropped up along my hairline. Well I got some pix and was hoping for some more feedback on if this is "normal" or not. It just seems like alot to me. There's actually more loose hairs than show in the pics, and the annoying thing is that they are not long enough to stay in the dread if i sew them in.

Five Months Already?! [19 Dec 2009|05:10pm]

Time flies when you're locking hair!

I've definitely noticed some changes in my locks. The shrinking appears to have stopped (thank goodness!) and the dreadies feel tighter.

I've learned two things since starting dreads:

1)Dreadlocks require a sense of humour - your hair can do some pretty weird things.
2)It is incredibly hard to take a picture of the back of your own head.

Time For A Timeline?Collapse )

Although some people tell me I look silly, I love my dread-babies and I have no regrets.

I just counted my dreads, I have 68. I didn't think there were that many.

Madness! [19 Dec 2009|07:51pm]
There was a spontaneous drum-circle/madness party at the food co-op I volunteer at the other night. Photos were taken. Lots of photos.
They are behind the cutCollapse )
