The Last Bastion of Delicacy

Hello lovelies

I just realized my dreads will turn 3 years old this week. Better to celebrate early than never!

In many ways these locks are both not at all and exactly what I expected they'd be like at this age. And I am thinking back to 10 years ago when I was part of a synthetic hair forum, wishing to all high heavens that my life was shaped differently so that I could have real dreads of my own. Ones I didn't have to take out on Monday morning.

I'm grateful that things have changed for the better since then, and that all of your amazing, individual hair personalities have continued to inspire.

This shoot is also showing off the progress on my first tattoo:


All wrapped up:

Sometimes I still look like a teenager (Typical!):

I hate photos of myself so I have started a daily self-portrait project. It makes me cry/die a little inside, but gives me more stuff to post AND you can look back years later and say, "I remember that!" Highly recommended.

Hope you're all having as lovely of a weekend as we are.
