.the hair cut.

i've had dreadlocks for 4 1/2 years now. they were loooooong. so long that they were really started to get ridiculous. too long to really function well. i could hard turn my head while playing roller derby without whipping someone in the face . . . not good. the man-friend would roll over and lay on them in the middle of the night. they would get stuck in my clothes when i was trying to change my shirt - chlostrophobia!!! plus they were just so heavy that it was really impracticle for me to let them conitnue to grow unchecked.

so, the man-friend did a little photo session with me to document the length (which i really was proud of) and then i chopped them all off. with a little bit of ceremony and pomp, of course.




the first cut

halfway there!!!

aaaahhhh, that's better!!!

my head feels so much lighter! i can play sports again without feeling burdened down. i can put my hair up withtout it pulling on my head and giving me a headache! fantastic! and the ends look so much cleaner and neat . . . i know this isn't usually a concern for people with nappy hair . . . . you know, they don't worry so much about being neat. but . . . i do.

anyway, i was able to do a KICKASS updo with my new hair lenght for the masquerade ball! awesome! photos to come!!!
