Hello! I'm new. I've been lurking here for a ridiculously long time, but haven't had cause to post until now, because I just finished dreading my hair :D

I had dreadlocks once before, I think when I was 15 (I'm 18 now, 19 in a little over a month). They were synth ones that took a fucking age to put in, and they were all various shades of blue and purple with a bit of red and they were lovely, but I only had them in for a week because my school told me to take them out or I'd get suspended.

Anyway, pictures:

I do actually have a face, just so you know, but the flash ate it.

Hopefully they will mature into nice chunky dreads :D There are a few hanging around somewhere that I think have the potential to turn positively BEASTLY when they grow up.

They're all a mix of backcombing and rip-twisting, with a little palm rolling thrown in for good measure. I think I may need to tighten some of them a bit more, maybe re-do them altogether, but tomorrow. Right now I need a nice cup of tea and a sit down. My poor arms...
