Dread update

Whats been happening in the world of dreads since I blew up my computer?! Well this:

1. I Rounded my tips.

Ive been wispy tail ends for 2 years and got bored at work and started rounding them with a crochet hook. I did the whole 42 dreads over a weekend in August and they look great. No more "I love your round tips" because I HAVE MY OWN! Mind you rounding on dreads ths age, and dreads like mine that go running and swimming means 10-15 have become tails again. Ill re tip when I can be bothered. I lost about 1" lenght. Its a nice change, and they stay in buns better.

I chopped.

Friday night I chopped them off. I'm still doing double-takes in the mirror, but I am really happy with the decision. It's very different, it will take some getting used to. I will still hang around and read this community, plus I adore all the pictures and how active and inspiring this community is! Hope you all don't mind me stickin' around. I will have a 2nd set someday, I haven't given up on them completely.
