the two above are pics of my hair BEFORE the dreads. the ones below are all WITH dreads. ( i have a certain knack for stating the obvious.) i especially love the ones in the back. i don't maintenance them as much and they've totally taken on personalities. all i need now is to name them. but that will come with time.
and finally just one for fun.
you know, i hated it at first. how suddenly everyone had an opinion and they were going to share it whether i wanted to hear it or not, from "i wouldn't want my hair to look like that, if i were you" to "what have you done?!?!?! your hair was so pretty!" to "did you just forget to brush your hair all week or is that the new STYLE?" all of which got biting remarks right back from me. however as time went on and i began having people that i never thought would have dreads come up and tell me their own little dread-stories and anecdotes, i began to feel less defensive about the decision the I had made for MY own hair. what did i care what others thought of it? it is a daily liberating experience and i think, through my boyfriend and his sister's encouragement (they both have dreads as well) that i am gonna find a whole 'nother side to things. can hair do that? i don't know but i've already noticed a change. i can't wait till they are fully matured and till i am as well. :) thanks for reading and just so's to give credit where it's due i want to mention that all of the pics in my post are taken by my boyfriend's sister ahhhjennie, who is also in get_up_dread_up. ciao for now.
