(no subject)

hello all... i haven't posted here in a very long time. i recently moved to eugene to go to school. it's been pretty tough trying to make new friends and start over again since i am so shy... but this summer some of my friends came to visit me for the oregon country fair. so of course there are lots and lots of pictures...

Hey everyone! My dreads are 1 month and 3 days old. I've been debating if I should take out the front dreads and make bangs. I realize that I made them kind of small and now that I'm looking at them I'm not sure if they'll be strong enough once they mature. A friend suggested combing them out and making bangs.

Below are two pics. Yes, I have a lot of grey in the front. I might henna it (had been growing it out but not sure if I like it). Right now my hair is grey, brown, and auburn (from when I used to do henna...before dreads). I'm not sure with the color. I might wind up bleaching the bangs and one or two dreads and using henna on the rest. I'm kind of up in the air about it. Eventually I might dye them other colors but maybe not. Have to figure it out. (read memories on dying dreads...might wait a few months before I do henna or bleach)

Anyway, my big thing right now is the bangs. I'm just not sure if they would look good. Everyone says, "I'll have to see you in bangs to know" but I haven't had bangs since I was 15 (I'm 32 now). So other than family and 2 friends no one in my life knows what I look like with bangs. lol And what I looked like then is totally different from now. lol

If I do bangs they'll probably be long. Not sure how long...I'll have to play with them.

If it matters the hair in the front is also very thin. I had made a mistake a few years ago and lost some hair (long embarrassing story). I haven't lost any more but the hair I did lose never grew back. I seem to be the only person who notices (unless you look for it) but I'm nervous that the thin hair might not be strong enough for dreads. Another reason for maybe doing bangs.

What do you all think?

Here are two pics. One with my dreads down and another with them up. Yeah, blinding white hair with it up. lol But I do wear them up a lot when outside. The heat kills me!
