Eighteen months

I love having dreads. I hate looking at them.



Technically, I did hike Mt Rainier.


I thought it was high time that i took some fresh pics because I never seem to have any decent/recent ones when people ask! Here we go.

My roots are really irritating. I have some that are looping and knotting, and others that are perfectly straight:



And parts of them look chunky and happy and lumpy:



The loose hair isn't so much working their way into neighbors, but calling out for more hair to join it in the wild. Here are two shots showing the back down and how I usually twist it back (using two dreads near my ears). It looks marginally neater:



And one last shot of the loose hair I have at each side. I really hate the roots that show up clearly on dark hair:





Thanks, guys, for the inspiration that you post every day. I don't comment much but I am watching and waiting until I can be just as fabulous!
