About Me
wuddup i'm Naomi. after weeks of preparation, that involved bleaching and build up removal and sea salt sprays, i sectioned and backcombed on September 9 2011. this was my 3rd attempt at getting dreads on my 3 inch hair (2 inch in the back) i waxed them once cuz i thought they weren't gunna stay. they looked awesome but that's not what i wanted originally. i wanted to be product free and with the help of this site i hope to be wax free soon! i'm in this for the long run but if for some reason down the road i need to lose em, i want to be able to comb them out. i dont want to have to cut my hair short.... again. after all the processing and dying and flat iron my hair is happy to get a break! im still gunna dye them just not till they're longer.
my husband Larre (pronounced "Larry" for those who couldn't get that) and i have been married since Jan 2009. we both took the dreadlocks plunge! we prepared his the same way but let his bleached hair grow out to create blonde tips on his locks. we backcombed for 18 hours on September 1st 2011. his hair is much softer and straighter than mine. he is in sales management at Journeys (the ironically named shoe store) he needs his to look clean and neat so we waxed his. and he's happy with it. he's not scared of it rotting or getting stinky. if that happens we will cut them off. to him its just hair and it grows so fast for him! he gets a lot of complements and all the old ladies want to touch them. haha, we took the maintenance a little over board and would crochet every time he had a day off, it was my experiment to see what would happen if his hair was "too well" maintained. wax, crochet, interlocking, root rubbing, and rolling. within a few months his hair was literally falling out. due to a job promotion we cut them off at 4 months.
we have a beautiful son, Logan Jett. hes 3... it's a challenge. but he's our whole world! i'm letting his hair grow and we'll see what happens :-)

so that's us. our lives are pretty laid back. we love camping and mountain biking. i'm a photographer and we own a photography business, Naomi Choate Photography. but i'm not here to promote my business, that's what Facebook is for ;-)
i've learned a lot already from this site and the people here are chill!!

Mine are coming along pretty good I think, its hard to tell in the beginning especially when they are so short. i'm trying not to think about them all the time and fuss with them so they can do their own thing, but i find myself touching them constantly to feel how solid they are :P
