sublime

Thinking about dreading again.

Heyyyy GUDU! Oh, how I've missed thee.

I am extremely bored, so I've decided to make a timeline kinda thing. I absolutely miss my dreads, and it's only been 8 months since the comb-out. I did it for love, because I'm pathetic. The love of my life [now ex boyfriend I'm still not over] and I were going through some problems in the relationship, and I wanted him to fall in love with me all over again. [He fell in love with me when I had straight, brushable hair.] And, me being crazy, decided to try that method out. Didn't work. Another part of my reasoning may have been I crave change, always. Man. And now, like I'm sure all of us who get rid of dreads, I am seriously considering dreading my hair, once again, for the 6th time.

To Henna? or Not To Henna?

Its been a long time since I was last on lj. But I'm back! And I've been catching up on all the posts. I started my first set of dreads back in 07 after my sons first birthday and kept them for about 2 years. After I combed out my first set I was SO SAD! Why oh why did I do that? brushable hair is just not for me anymore. So I let it grow for as long as I could, meanwhile.... my husband joined the navy, I moved like 4 times. He was gone for a full year so I got a glimpse of being a single parent. After my trip to florida in july I couldn't wait anymore I had to dread up. Its been 8 months, I gave up on dieing my hair a few years ago, but now I am just so bored with my color! Ive been doing lots of research and I think that if I'm going to change the color it has to be Henna. I just cant make up my mind. I need HELP! so here are some recent pics, let me know what you think?

two years!

3.14, 2011 - two years for me! i've been through so much - an engagement, calling it off, university, bipolar, family issues, money issues, living on my own. my dreadlocks hold all those memories and i have no intentions of letting go of them. they've made me stronger over the years, and they will continue to make me stronger.
