My partner (stitchFIGHT) messaged me asking for a few details and photos of my hair and I've decided to post here to get some more discussion going.  Feel free to add your own details/photos!

"Hey partner!

Can you tell me more about your dreads, like are they really 7 years old! That's awesome  I would love to know the length of the dreads, how fat they are and the circumference of you head  Maybe you have a photo of them, that would be great.
I can't wait to start the crafting"

Yes, they are really 7 years old but they may not look like it because a) I've let them do their own thing those 7 years and don't bother fixing the frizzies and whatnot, and b) I caught lice somehow last Halloween and really damaged my hair and lost a LOT of length in the process of killing them.

They go down to about the halfway point of my back (they'd be past my butt at this point if it weren't for the lice!) and the thickness of each varies quit a bit.  3 1/2 inches, 2 inches, 1 1/2 inches, etc...

My head?  It's huge.  It's big to begin with, and my hair is thick without the dreads so having them on top of that means huge.  About 29 - 30 inches.


My turn for a question.  What is your hair type, and what colour is it?

Also, what are your favourite and least favourite fragrances?  (Nevermind.  I'm working on the gift I had the question for right now so I'm just going to choose essential oils based on instinct.  I hope you don't mind!)
