(no subject)

 I need your help. I've had my dreads for about a year and a half, and I'm just so discontent with them. The length is good, but I hate the color. I never leave them down anymore, I never feel right with them. I'm never satisfied with how they look. I'm seriously considering cutting them off.

However, if there was a way that I could do something new with them (aside from just dying them. I'm already considering that), I would.

Anyone have suggestions?

Here they are lately:

helloooo wide world of dreadies.

So I just moved to New Zealand from Australia! I cant really be bothered going into why and blah blah blah right now but yes... I am in Auckland at the moment staying in the fat camel backpackers in town so I was wondering whether perhaps there were any of the lovely dread heads I saw in town on GUDU.

If so... wanna show me around? I have a crotchet hook and free time on my hands :D

Drop me a line! It would be lovely to start meeting some likeminded lovelies as soon as possible.

Hey guys!

Hows has it been??? Sorry ive been really inactive. Two of my compact flash cards somehow got spoilt and i havent been taking many pictures lately.

Anyways, here's a few pics taken by my friend (using her Blackbird Fly camera, which is an AWESOME camera) of our trip to the flea market.

a year and some change pt 2

I sat on the idea of cutting my dreads off for a little bit. Reminded myself that it wasn't a new idea for me. Weighed the pros and cons. I also sat and thought of the past year, of all the hurt and emotion that I went through that weighed heavy on my heart and weaved itself through my dreads. The things I got up and brushed off and kept moving through. I felt an almost cathartic relief when I finally sat down in my recliner and snipped them all off. I was advised to go to my hair dresser but I felt it was too much of a personal thing to be done by anybody else but me. In the end, I left one, my favorite for my mother to cut off. She reassured me that I was beautiful regardless, but she was relieved to see them go. Do I regret cutting them? No, maybe a little in the back of my mind but not really. Will I dread again? Definitely. Do I miss them? Of course. It's an odd feeling to run my hands through my (albeit short) hair again.

I cut them off about two inches from the root and combed the rest out, then got a cute little cut from my favorite hairdresser.

It was time for a change

I've been internet-ness for months now, thus being the reason for not having posted in ages. I ended up brushing out my dreads a bit before they turned a year and a half. They just weren't working for me at the time, I was really irritated by my hair and I lost a lot of self esteem because of them. I always loved them and I intend on having dreads again in my life, next time definitely for a lot longer than this first time. I decided to keep my one crazy dread that all my friends deemed as "paw" because over the course of his little dreadie life he looked a lot like a paw print. =) He's still chilling on my right side right above my ear.

With all the hair that came out while I was brushing them out...I used them to make extentions for my best friend. She's going to deep clean them and dye them to match her hair color. =) Hooray for recycled hair!
I dont' miss them as much as I thought I would, honestly. Not saying I didn't love my dreads...I just am really happy to have my brushable hair back. A cut and color is to follow and I'll try to make up a proper timeline and post it within the week or so.
I hope everyone had a great christmas. Enjoy the new year, lovelies.
