I know I will be following you in that direction. A lot of my dreads are shrinking to just above shoulder length and I'm sure it will be a matter of another month or two when the rest are just as short.
I'm thinking that I can do a little french braiding in order to get the shorter bits tucked in order and as much as it will be difficult to look professional with hair so short, I can't wait for the length to drop so that I can get a breeze on my neck again. My hair is so think and I am not used to not having it short and thinned out.
I love the use of the spirals. Very cool.
I wish my hair was still long enough for braids. As it is I can't even make a bun. I'm just barely able to get them all bunched together in one "pony tail" for work. A good 1/3 of my dreads get just kind of tucked into each other giving the illusion of being tied in. There is definitely no hiding that something funky is going on with my hair these days. My work look is pretty interesting to say the least.
I need to spend some time figuring out some new styles for my stubby little dreads. I'm getting downright sick of just pulling my hair back!
