Lol... thanks. I'm happy with them, and they are changing rapidly... it's amazing... it's only been 6 days. SIX days!! I shoulda done this along time ago~it was obviously meant to be. I'll have to post a new pic soon, just to show the difference. neil coe said:

It feels like an opportunity to educate people! People who know me were not surprised, though my mother was horrified~I have nappy, crazy thick hair anyway & she always wanted me to straightened, smooth, etc. (guess it reminded her of my dad, who is Arab~you would be appalled at the torture my hair was subjected to as a child~and I must admit, as an adult~til now)! I think the responses I have experienced are so varied partly due to geography. I live in the FAR Eastern Panhandle of WV~20 mins from MD one way, 20 Mins from VA the other. I am only 40 mins from Baltimore & Washington DC~so it is an eclectic bunch of people here... people from the city~living here, working there. Large groups of people relocated here because of huge corporations moving in from the Northeast. People like myself, that just stumbled in for some random reason. People of ALL ethnicities. People who are from here originally~they are the few negatives. It's almost like doing a sociological study! I find it fascinating...

Ha~I can handle the rednecks! And really they're mostly all good people, their worldview has just been limited, so I try to remember that. No one has been mean~they just say, "I don't like it." Then I say, "good thing I didn't do it for you!" and laugh and move onto another topic. Then they're fine. I think they just need to know I'm the same person. You know, I have actually had a couple people ask me if my hair is real!? So I know what you mean aboout that. :) heather said:

No Whales, I think that's a good way to get a feel...so to speak ; )

Yesterday a dude said, "I love your hair! Do you wax it and roll it to get it like that?" I explained (or tried to) that NO, no wax, no rolling, my hair is dreadlocked. Poor guy...he just could NOT understand how my hair stays locked. He was STUCK on "But how do you get it to do that?" I found myself feeling frustrated, so I kinda gave up trying to keep explaining it to him.

I live in Boulder, so dreadies are all around but my parents live in rural missouri. no doubt, I'll be made fun of by locals. it's change they don't like.
