Three years ago today I sat in a chair for seven hours while my friends backcombed my hair with a metal flea comb. And I haven't touched a hairbrush since! This was the process of beginning my dreadlocks, and since then they've grown thick and started to actually look pretty good.
Here's what they've looked like over the years (most of these pics are boy mode):
|One month - still just kind of a mess|
|Eight months - starting to take shape|
|Now (and in girl mode!)|
Three years is a long time to have the same hairstyle. I'm not ready to cut them off yet, but maybe soon I'll try dyeing them pruple or something crazy like that!
