RIP dreads 7/30/04-1/3/08

title or description

I cut all 23 of them when we beat Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl (take that, America! Once again, WVU defies the odds). I left 2-3 inches of dread left on each. It took 10-15 hours to comb them all out--the fat ones took an hour each, and I managed to finish the last 9 while watching Forrest Gump. Dude, combing them out was gross--there was so much CRAP inside my hair. I had to wash my head every time i finished a combing-out session because of all the goo. I know it wasn't wax, because I haven't used that in years, and the part of the dreads I combed out was at the top, but I'm assuming it was old shampoo. It kinda smelled that way. I guess I never really washed it out all the way, even though I always rinsed until the water ran clear.

So anyways, pictures! We kinda had a party for the chop, so there were a ton of pictures on facebook.
