Another Video

I made another video talking about my hair, basically answering a few questions that I've gotten about my hair. I kind of rambled a little, I think, so I had to split it up. The first video is around 9 minutes, the second video around 3 minutes.

Also, a couple more pics

No more locks

So, I finally had the dream that I've heard other dreadlocked people have ... my locks were gone. In the dream, I was visiting my dad and stepmom, and I combed them out and had my hair straightened for the visit. The disturbing part of the dream for me was the fact that I was primping and preening and combing my hair in the mirror. I was loving it, lol. Of course, when I woke up I was happy to realize it was a dream. I really wonder why I had that dream.

Anyway, it's been 7 months of lockdom, and I have my same few pics. Please excuse the quality, these weren't taken with my regular camera, and I couldn't get the camera lens completely clean (my daughter likes to mess with that camera). Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I latched about 10 locks right in the front of my head (about 5 on each of the first 2 rows). I was really tired of seeing only the tips of those hairs being locked. Afro-lock was not cute in the front to me. I tried to do it loosely, and I didn't latch it all the way to the root. Also, I don't intend to continuously maintain my hair.
