So I went on a mad hunt for shampoo today. I like the Dr. Bronners tea tree oil and I can get it at one of the head shops at the Ithaca commons, which is like an outdoor hippie mall where everything is all natural/organic, made from 100% hemp, and every store sells dread beads and bongs. But thats back at school and Im home on winter break right now. So I went to the head shop in my neighborhood hoping they would sell something. All they had was dreadhead HQ shit, and you had to buy a whole dread making kit. Nothing was sold seperate. Sooooo, I bought it. **lame** Tonight out of shear boredom I read through everything, checked everything out, whatnot. One of my boyfriends house mates has super nice dreads and she uses the DHHQ shit religiously, so I figured, I paid $40 for it, I might as well try some of it. Sooooo, I decided to try the wax in only a few of my dreads, using even less than the directions said to. Buuuuuuut, the methodical motion of slowly waxing my dreads kind of zoned me out, and before I realized it, I had done pretty much my whole head. I cant decide if Im happy about this or not.

Also, my undercut is starting to get long again. I dont plan on ever brushing, but I have very thin, fine hair and it fights hard against being dreaded. Its a lot of work to keep up with for my hair apparently, so I dont know if Ill be able to go natural when the undercut finally starts getting long enough, but I would like to. All my dreads were originally backcombed, but my boyfriend rip twists the lose ones for me and that seems to hold them better. I dont know, I just felt like ranting.

Waxy babies.

About a month and a half. Theyll be two months on January 16. My second set. A unkosher amount of overwaxing ruined my first set. I think thats why I might be more sketch about waxing this second time around. Hmmm.
