Question about blunting tips + World Cup fever

Hey, y'all. Time flies and my knotty hair-clumps (almost dreads) are 9 months old!

I wasn't going to round the tips at all, but the way they've been shrinking and knotting up, most of them have 3 or 4 inches of really scraggly hair that's refusing to comply. So I started ripping-and-twisting the very ends and sewing them up. All good, right?

But maybe 10 of my dreads are only dreaded halfway down -- like 5 inches from my head, and then it's all loose, silky hair with not a knot. I've been leaving them the fuck alone, hoping they would do something, but noooo -- the dreaded part gets tighter and awesomer, but the loose hair stays the same. These are mostly the ones underneath on the sides of my head.

What should I do about these? Should I rip-and-twist them and then sew their ends in? I don't want to have half a head of short fat blunt ones and then a bunch of scragglies at the bottom. On the other hand, I obviously don't mind that much walking around with a head of funny-looking hair, soooo...

[Bonus confounding variable: I'm going to see Katie in six weeks or so (hi, Katie!), so I could wait and have her do anything I can't do myself.]

And just so this isn't all text: here's what I've been doing for the past two weeks.

ETA: I did it tonight! Super cute. I'll have to post pix soon... maybe tomorrow after Brasil win? ;]

damaged dreads needed love

I used a protein treatment on my dreads today and I am really happy with how it turned out so I thought I would share my experience. It's not the brand recommended before by our lovely lishd (she recommends Apoghee i used "Ion keratin protein rebuilder" but i just got a one use packet not this big bottle here: http://www.sallybeauty.com/damaged-hair-treatment/ION25,default,pd.html#reviews)

After bleaching my hair so many times and then dying it back darker, I noticed I had all these 'white spots' on the more damaged ends of my dreads, which basically are the stubby ends of hair cuticles or something like that.... almost looked like dandruff. well after using the protein treatment they are pretty much completely gone!! i was not expecting that!

my hair is shinier and the tips just seem so much healthier and all my hair feels stronger. I had tried using conditioner on my dreads recently and holy crap, my hair got sooo elastic feeling and seriously felt like chunks were gonna fall out, i was scared. but this definitely didn't feel like that, which I was a little worried about!

ahhh, feels so good to be enjoying my dreads again!
