Mohawks look dreadful on me... ^__~

wahaha I'm so punny. o__0;;;

anyways. I hadn't done anything fun with my dreads for quite a while...so lately i've been ridiculously bored.

I'd planned to tie ribbons in them, so I gave them a thorough washing and tea rinse..which was lovely, by the way. I loves me dr. bronners.  Kiss

But if any of you ladies/gents have dreads, you'll know how gross it is when your damp hair traps all the heat and humidity in. *DEATH*

way too hot to deal with that foolishness. (indeed, I DID say foolishness)

ugh, so I started to tie my hair up in itself and played with it until I got to this. I had fun, and now I have a great hot-weather, funky hairstyle!




okay, so here we are with the piccies!

first, my best shot, taken when I was finally un-lazy enough to take out my tripod...the best view I could get of myself...to show it's not just a strange bump on my head whilst seeing my face...

Next, the cliche, "i'm oh-so-original and exciting" pose.

Oh, and here's my hair in a couple of its other forms.

down, a bit too close-up...ah well. also ignore the awkward position of my nose ring....it pisses me off every time I look at this photo! AAAAAAAAARGH.


and side-bun-whatever

okay, that sucked quite a bit, but I hope you could get some idea of how my hair is when it's down. It varies from chin-length in the front to below-shoulder all the way in the back...I still have no idea how that happened...ah well

I'm so excited! I mean, it's holding up well! these pics are from today, 3 days after putting my hair up!

I don't really have anybody to bask with...I sent the boyfriend a pic and he says that he thinks I'm beautiful no matter what I have exploding from my head.  Tongue

My head will be exploding like this pretty often, so he'll get used to it. ^o^

"exploding from your head"! hehe! I think it's awesome. Really creative, a lot of fun and definitely great for summer. Also, your last photo reminded me of something I'd see in a photography exhibit. Love it!

That's awesome, did you just put your dreads in 3 ponytails and then somhow tie them all together? I have dreads and would love to try this out! How about a hair tut??

oh and about the tea rinse, I've heard of this but never tried it before. Do you brew tea in a large pot and dump ot pver your dreads? And is there a specific type of tea that you use?

That would probably be the smart person's way to do it...but I can't figure it out. I've made sad attempts before..

but, no, I actually tied my hair in a bunch of knots on my head...yes, actual knots. At first, I had no hair-ties at all. Put them in because I didn't want to get up and get any....

I'm surprised this came out of sheer laziness ^______^

Oh, and tea rinses are great. I actually wanted to do a vinegar rinse because I was feeling particularly icky, but we didn't have any. So I got a big bowl and tossed in a tea ball filled with jasmine, rosemary, cinnamon, and green/black tea.

It steeped for probably about half an hour or so whilst I cleaned the kitchen. I had probably about 2 quarts of liquid.

ooh, I almost forgot the most important part.

after I washed/rinsed my hair well I got an extra bowl, the same size as the other one. It took some juggling, but one bowl goes in the sink, under your hair, and you hold the other and pour it over several times until you're satisfied. That way you can get the most of the tea with minimal waste.

afterwards, some people rinse with water...I didn't. it smells yummy without being overwhelming.

I kind of just tossed anything in it that I felt like, but there are lots of recipes around. Some for highlights, some for shininess, etc.

dude. I promise I make more sense when I'm not going on so little sleep. u__u;;;

haha nice, i think i understand. For the tea rinse you just steap nice smelly tea in a large bowl in hot? water for about an hour or so then take an extra bowl, put your dreads  over it and dump the tea over, then take the bottom bowl and replace it with the empty one and repleat? I think that's what you mean.

For the dread fauxhawk you jusr knotted them? That's awesome! I might try it, but actually tie them in sections then knot it up. I'll use your pics as a guide... sorta haha

Great job though
