Goes well with chocolate & peanut butter.

It's been a little while since I posted pics. They'll be a year old in about a week and a half. It's been a slow process, but I've enjoyed it immensely.

Taken in May.....I have some whispies in the front that just don't want to be eaten......I've just let things happen as they will, so maybe they'll stay like that or maybe they'll just assimilate into a dread one day. Who knows.... ;)

Taken in June....The ones towards the front tend to be thin. The ones in the back and the undergrowth tend to be my fatties. I have tried to get back pictures, but it's too hard to do by myself. I usually end up just getting half my head.

Taken a couple days ago....It's been a little on the warm side here, so I like to wear them up to get them out of my way. I tie them up into a loose bun right above the nape of my neck. The ends usually stick out and up from the bun.

After a year's time, they're FINALLY doing some major shrinking. While this freaked me out at first, it excites me now because I know they're getting super tight. My hair started out at the middle of my back and most of it is now a little below shoulder length. One of my dreads reached my breast when it was first done, and it's now ABOVE shoulder length.

Anyway.......just wanted to share. :)
