i lik mah hairs.

Just one...


...how I'm wearing my dreads today! Happy 4th if you're observing. I don't, but my dad died six years ago today, so July 4 historically sucks ass for me.

This year, I feel the best I ever have since he passed, and that, friends, IS worth celebrating :)

Deep Clean Adventure

Hello all you extraordinary creatures! I've been not much involved in the land of the internets for quite a while now, but have been thinking about GUDU often since the summer started, and am finally having a lazy computer day to facilitate epic photo postings! I shall warn you now that nudity abounds...

This is a photo documentation of the recent deep clean I did. My dreads are 2 years and 5 months old, and this is this first actual deep clean I have ever done. The process was great and I LOVE the results. The recipe I used was: Mix 3/4 cup baking soda with 4 or 5 teaspoons of pink sea salt into a very large bowl of warm water (I dissolved the sea salt in some hot water first). I was supposed to use the juice of a lemon and tea tree oil too but I didn't have those things readily available so I did without. I'm sure those things would help a bit, but they really didn't seem to be necessary. I soaked my entire head, fully submerged, in the solution for about 5-10 minutes, and also swished my head up and down back and forth and scrubbed my scalp with my fingertips extensively. I squeezed all the gross water out and repeated the process two more times.
