newbie - pictures

beyonddreams sent me here ages ago, when i was still desperately wanting dreadlocks and not able to have them. it's been fun watching this community. 3 weeks(ish) ago, i finally started on my own :)

we didn't really backcomb tightly enough all over, and it seems like quite a few have about 6 inches of quite tight knots from the tips, and then are fairly loose from there to my scalp. for the moment i'm just ignoring that, hoping they'll sort themselves out a few months down the line, and directing the boyfriend to that bit of my head when he complains about the scratchy scratchy dreads. heh.

so, yeah. they're messy and uneven, and i adore them. this place has been a lot of help, the memories are ace :)
