dready hed

I finally gave in and took out my fab, ass-length pink dreads today. Well, actually Jovino did it - it would have been really difficult, if not impossible to do myself. (That boy is handy with a seam ripper.) Wendy did a GREAT job of securing them! I miss them already, and at the same time, I feel so much lighter and more free without all the extra bulk.

A rad thing about extension dreads is that when you remove them, they are intact and *reusable* (unlike braid extensions) so I can either have 'em put in again at some later point in time, or make a dreadfall or ponytail dreads. Sweet!

Having the extensions in for over a month, as I did, caused my own hair to dread a bit, so the sectioning is still there, and I now have a head full of mini dreads. (Pic forthcoming.) It's actually pretty cute, and I am thinking of keeping my hair like this, at least for a while. We'll see how it looks once I wash it. If I decide I really like it, it will get the loose hair at the ends dreaded as well, and have cute little pink micro dreads.

How's your hair?
