It's been two weeks and two days! Here's a couple pictures from day one, week one, and week two (the last three pics). It looks looser than it is, only because my ends are loose and curly.

Well, here I am at week...I think 12? I'm not quite sure anymore. And I'm too lazy to go back and count!

I've noticed the back of my head is getting tighter and tighter, shrinking too. the front is pretty much the same as always, it has stayed tight from the beginning and there hasn't been any shrinkage to my knowledge.

I've been separating a lot, but not as compulsively as before. I was so paranoid that they would congo that I would pry at the root to make sure each was separate! Now I just wait for it to grow out a bit, and go to it.

Today is actually the first day that I've had some doubts and even considered combing out! My personality has changed a lot...I've always been really adventurous with my hair, but I was also the type of person who wouldn't leave the house without makeup...so now that I'm dealing with this massive fuzzy head, I figure that worrying about makeup would be kind of silly! If I don't worry what people think about my hair, why would I worry about makeup and clothes?

Then again, I have the freedom to not work (disabled veteran)...and not everyone has that. I've been considering applying for a couple jobs, some volunteer positions too, and I'm not quite sure how to make my hair a little more presentable. And at the same time, I'm not sure I want to. I don't have to work, so why stress about changing my appearance just to get a job? I'm still debating on this one.

I do miss my black and purple hair though. I was inspired by someone else on here to henna my dreads. Did some research and bought some product online tonight. Couple different colors...god forbid my hair be all the same color!! I want at least 3 different shades of red in there!

I'm also going to get back to working on my beads. I slacked off for a long time...and I need to sell the ones I've already made...Starting next week, I'll be selling!Oh yeah...pictures!

Attempted to henna my hair...ahhh...bright bright orange (first picture) Not cool. lol

Bleached out the front a bit (second picture)

Dyed the front purple and the back brown/black (it was supposed to be a burgandy)

loving it! I love my dreads more and more every day! I'm not stressing about separating or anything...I'm getting some big loops, but that's alright. I've tried to wear beads a couple times, but can't get them to stay in! How do you guys do it? I even make my own beads but can't seem to get them small enough? Then when I put them on, I feel like I'm hurting my dread if they are too tight....I'm confused.

Last pic is some of the beads I've made.
