Meet my new dreads, Flickr friends. I love love love them. I wish I had more pictures to share but the sky started pouring a while ago. Hopefully a few others turned out. I'll post more soon.
So I did this yesterday. It took 4 hours, and I used multiple methods to achieve my dreads. My hairdresser separated and backcombed my roots, my mom, sister, friend, and I all twisted and ripped, and then we rolled them when we applied my homemade vegan wax (unfortunately, not homemade by me - I bought this from a woman in Colorado through eBay). I did make my locking accelerator though: sea salt, lemon juice, and water in a spray bottle.
