Here's my dreadies, one month in, complete with a weird bug bite under my eyeball. Sweet.
I'm kind of worried about the back...this is the best picture i could get:
I can't really reach some of the back dreads, so I'm scared that they're growing into some weird mass or something.
Also, for your enjoyment, the I'm-taking-a-shit-but-not-really shot, complete with what appears to be blueberry between my front teeth, because i was biting blueberries in half for my pet rats, because they never eat whole ones, so I give them each half.
So, how are my dreads lookin'? I originally did some backcombing, but mostly I've just been rolling them and letting them do their thing. I was using knotty boy bar shampoo for a week or two, but then I left it in a hotel room in Arizona (I live in Maryland) like the idiot I am, so lately I've been mostly just rinsing my hair until I stop being lazy and get new 'poo. I swim a lot and I've been using a locking mixture I made with water, aloe, salt, peppermint oil, and tea tree oil, which smells pretty good, so I don't feel dirty at all.
Didn't mean to give you my whole life story there. Any comments/advice/offers of marriage are welcome.
