This is my second set, I'm at 5 months today! Yay!
My first set, in reverse history:
Year 6, a couple of weeks before I combed them out. I chopped several off because the weight was getting unbearable (I'm prone to migraines, plus I'm on a soccer team and having this huge bun on my head bouncing up & down all the time was just too much).
Year 6, about 3 months before I combed them out. Did a quick chop of some ends too.
End of Year 5. Oh dear... pretty sure I was drunk when this one was taken.
Year 2... they were barely long enough to tie back!
Don't have any pics of Year 1, unfortunately. (It was a rough time in my life and I ended up moving cross-country... long story.)
A quick plug for my Etsy shop as well... I make beaded dread sleeves. Example:
