I'm a first time poster, long time reader/ member. My locks turn five this December. (Crazy!) I read all the memories and tips here before we started them -- no wax, ever, yay!! I love Get Up Dread up!!! I have recommended it to every single wanting-to-dread friend I have had! (At last count, I'm the inspiration-mother of at least five sets of locks.)
OK, so in January I posted a tutorial on my blog that my friends really pushed and pushed to have me link to here. But I was intimidated. Really, really intimidated (for probably no reason at all except I admire the heck out of all y'all!) So, I didn't do it, even though I should have. But my really awesome friend girlgoth keeps pushing, and I promised, so this is especially for her!!! (And also for kettunainen and myrrhdusa )
OK, and also, because I'm here and I might as well: five pics behind the cut :-D
We went to a wedding in March, so I dressed up.
I love my little family.
Fooling around, playing with my kid. He's five! Goodness!
It's long enough to wear up now without a hairtie or scarf. This makes me unreasonably happy.
This was messy (and I'm not sure I can duplicate it) but it makes me happy, too.
Thanks for all the awesome information and for being part of my life!!!!! I really love this community!!
