New Wool Tam!

Namaste, Dread-Wearers and Dread-Admirers!

I live in Ontario, Canada and winter is no longer an avoidable experience in my city! We've got snow, slush and ice, and with all those things, we of course, get colder weather! With the temperatures being what they are, I, like many other folk, sought out the headgear we have stored away for the winter season...only I found that none of my winter hats no longer fit over my year-old dreadbabies!

Thus, with great pleasure, I reached a milestone in my hair journey - the purchase of my very first tam. Now, I know that for many of you, this is probably not a big deal, but as someone who has often wondered if her hair was growing at all, it was exciting to see that YES, VIRGINIA (er...Bethy): YOUR HAIR IS GROWING!

I immediately trekked to my nearest head shop, where I purchased a lovely, green, 100% wool tam. I love it. It just feels so "me".

Of course, this required a photo session!

first post.

Well, hello there fellow GUDU'ers!
This will be my very first post here. I have crept around a lot leaving very few comments, but I've definintely been around. 
I have loved reading everyone's posts immensely over the past few months. I can't remember when I found this group exactly.
But it has helped me out a lot, as I didn't know much about maintaining dreads when my girlfriend first created them. I've wanted
them since I was a tween, watched my brother and his friends grow them, and then out grow them.
Anywho, I'm just here expressing my love for all of you GUDU'ers! Keep the lovely posts a comin' I look forward to them.

Happie holidays dread friends. :)
