And now, a more light-hearted post... about one of my new favorite topics: dreadlocks.
I've had mine for almost two months now. And they are wonderful!
How are they wonderful, you may ask? I'll tell you...
Dreads are wonderful because:
1) They are easy to maintain
2) I never have a bad hair day
3) I get to enjoy odd stares wherever I go
I love seeing the look on peoples faces when I go someplace new, or meet someone for the first time. Sometimes they stare, sometimes they try not to... and they always ask me the same questions:
Do you wash them?
How did you do them?
Who did them?
How long did it take?
Can I touch them?
And my answers are:
Because they're awesome. I'm a college student and I'll never be this independent again, so I might as well take advantage of it.
Yes, I do wash them, with special dread shampoo.
Through a process called backcombing.
My wonderful mother.
About 8 hours.
And yes, of course C:
I'll continue to post as I get interesting reactions or have stories about them...
