Before dreads - April 06 (with Idris, my fantastic Bridge Aquila :D)
Finally finished after 17 hours (over 4 days) - 1st September 06
Morning of my brother's wedding after a dye job the night before - 28th October 06. My mum hooked 'leaves' from a craft shop onto my hair.
December 06 - Trying to look half-tidy for a symphony concert...
January 07 - I scanned my hair (as one does, of course...)
19th January 07 - dodgy quality webcam picture
March 07 - beginning to look a bit less scruffy...
I defy anyone with dreads to honestly say they haven't done this. Straight after a job interview (hence the smart shirt). I didn't get the job btw, heh. Around June 07.
Another June 07 one, just after a dye job! Semi-permanent, mind you.
On the London Underground a couple of days before seeing Aerosmith at Hyde Park, June 07.
At the festival itself (it rained all day!)...
And a view from above as we all check our mobiles.
Fiddling for someone via webcam, September 07 (about a year old!). This is Klaus, by the way. :-)
October 07, and finally beginning to look somewhat like dreads instead of fluffy tangles...
November 07, another scan. I have a feeling this might not show up on darker monitors, apologies if that's the case.
My symphony orchestra one year on... December 07.
February 08. I actually think they looked quite good here, if I say so myself. They're up and down with 'neatness' all the time, so any ups are a good thing. :P
And finally, snow! Earlier this month! It hasn't snowed anything like this since I was about 8! And as for being actually that deep, I don't think it's ever done that here! As much as I love being by the sea (I'm on a little peninsula next to Portsmouth), we do miss out on snow. :-(
Tada! Like I said, they're up and down all the time. Still lots of straggly ends, still lots of loops (which I think are here to stay, now), and still lots of loose fluffy hair that I'm struggling to keep up with. But I think it's been the longest lesson in patience I've ever had, and I can't really complain about that. :-)
