i would like to say i feel some what guilty for almost never posting in this thread, i've been lurking in this thread since its early beginnings. so i thought i would post pictures of my long gone dreads.
i had them for about a year, i did a little backcombing to get them started but as you can see i wasn't big on the maintainence thing.
I loved my dreads but they just got out of control and were all stuck together. At one point i couldn't scratch they back of my head and had to have someone seperate them with scissors. Also, they were all thick at the bottom and skinny at the top because where my hair was bleached they dreaded up more. So anyway after i graduated I cut them til they were each about 5 inches long and then spent 3 days tediously combing out the hair i had left. but it worked out pretty good after i was done because since they were all about the same length from my head when i cut them, it gave my hair a kind of layered effect.
My hair is MUCH thinner than it was before i dreaded my hair, which i attribute most of that loss to the combing out process i wish i could show you the trash bag full of hair i had after i finished
but i have been dreadless for about 4 months now and my hair seems to be making a comeback so i'm happy.
Once my hair grows out a bit i will be starting the dread process over again, this time i plan to take a little bit better care of them in their beginning stages.
And that is the story of my dreads!
on to the pics!
