I think the last time I showed my face my crazies were much much shorter. Now they're about a year and eight months and I can do this with them:
Get them out of my face-- I mean put them in a hair tie! I've waited so long for this <3!
Also I wanted to say that getting dreadlocks was the best thing I've done with my hair to date. After my locks were able to withstand water and my constant picking and pulling at them, they've become the easiest hairdo to maintain. Wash, separate and do silly things with them.
