Yesterday I finally got some maintenance on my guys after starting them (almost) 9 months ago. It was the first time in a long time that every dread got some love and they looked and felt so neat after! It also felt so good having my scalp washed and dreads tighted by someone else. She wants to help me get them looking really nice by having her do the maintenance every two weeks although I'm not sure how she wants me to afford it, even with her reasonable $40 fee. They seem to still be shrinking up and getting shorter so I'm hoping the one year mark will cue their growth. Here are a few pics to give you a better idea:
back in January, last time I palmed all of them (with wax that time)
close up of how tight she twisted them
updo with a scarf that I sport sometimes
me in NY during spring break
and just in case anyone is interested in seeing more pics of my hair, I have a ton posted in my albums :) http://pics.livejournal.com/who_ever_knew/gallery/0000a1cd
I hope everyone in this community is happy and well and I plan to frequent more as soon as this semester ends!
