Most of it is backcombed, but there's a big chunk in the back on the side w/o the hemp that are natural because I never got around to backcombing them and they started knotting themselves.
These are random pictures from my birthday, so the quality varies. Most of them were taken by my boyfriend, who, despite his many natural talents, can not take a picture to save his life, which is why I'm not in focus in a couple of them.
And this is Sam. He's also a dread-head. I can't really tell you how old his are, because he just sort of kept meaning to condition/comb out his hair and never got around to it, until finally he just decided to go for dreads. His hair is absolutely perfect for dreadlocks. It's their natural state and he's been fighting it his whole life. So the front half of his head is backcombed and the back is all completely natural.
