Thank you all so much for your kind words! I'm almost to my 2 year mark, and will be posting an anniversary picture sometime after April 17th They have changed so much since this photo!!
Wow, you are beautiful! I go all natural too, but I am definitely not the natural beauty you are.
very inspiring. very elegant~
You and your dreads look terrific lady!
Thank you everyone!
Ami, I don't "do" anything anymore. If you read through the posts on my photos, you will see that I began by neglecting. I rubberbanded the roots at 2 1/2 months, then removed them. I backcombed (regrettably) at 5 months, and then I just left them completely alone. I didn't follow up with palm rolling, I don't do any maintenance; I just have left them all alone since backcombing them, and most of them washed out, and my hair "started over", and I have lots of new baby hair that is inbetween the dreads, and it will eventually become its own thing as well. I don't manage any of my loops or kinks, I just let it be!
Ive seen a lot of dreads on this website but i must say yours are my favortite. This picture defines true natural beauty. Happy Valentines day
