Arachnaphobia (arachnaphobia) wrote in get_up_dread_up,


Hello! My name is Imke and I am from the Netherlands
I have my dreads for some longer than two years now
While searching for photos to make a timeline I found a lot
and as a result I have a hell of a lot of photos to share!

This was my hair before dreads! ;)

I had dreads when I was 14, for little les than a year and 'accidently' cut them off in a festival..  I won that stupid bet, only when waking up crying the next day I realised how I loved those dreads!

Then I had all kinds of strange hairdos..

Then I was tired of short hair so I tried to let it grow..

..made one pathetic dread because I wanted them back!

..and used fake hair for some time..

 the meanwhile my hair had grooown..

..cut my bangs which I didn't really like..

...and then, finally, TIME FOR DREADLOCKS!

I exchanged a dread!

and I dreaded my bangs

..then cut both sides and extended some with the ones I cut
