Hey everyone, I'm KT. I posted here last September/October I think, showing off my two baby dreadlocks. I've been lurking/admiring since then! I've been "obsessing" over dreads since I can remember, but I had to wait until my 18th birthday to get them done. My birthday was August 10th, so Monday, August 8th, 2005, starting at 5:00pm my friend EB began to dread my hair. We took a break to go to dinner around 8:00pm, came back around 9:30pm, and finished at 11:30pm. I don't have any "during" pictures because EB hasn't sent them to me yet, but I have before and after pictures! I love them so much!
Before (I couldn't find better pictures, so these will have to suffice):
I think these were taken the next day;
This was taken the first few minutes of my birthday. Please excuse the sweatiness!
Later that day:
(I was singing when the picture was taken)
I made a saltwater/lemon juice/scented oil concoction, and have been using it basically before I palmroll. How often are you supposed to use it, or does it even matter? I haven't washed them yet either.
One more thing! Is there anyone on this community going to SUNY Purchase in the fall? I'd love to have some dreaded friends to chill with!
