Anonymous asked: How do you maintain your dreads? Like washing and such. or do you not? They're long and gorgeous!


Answer:

Well this is a first! I never thought my dreads were advice-worthy hah. They are certainly not “perfectly made” dreads. Mine were made in part by neglect and in part by twist and ripping (making tiny knots at the base of the hair to help keep them separated). I don’t crochet them because its a huge freaking pain and I have dreads in the first place because I hate having to do my hair. However, this leads to bumps and quirks that some people don’t like, but I don’t mind them. Other than that I sometimes give them a sea salt and tea tree bath to clean them, but mostly I seldom wash with shampoo and let them do their thing. If you’re thinking of giving them a shot, good luck!

If I can, I will rise with a song
over this frozen land.

Well there’s nothin’ in particular
that I have on my mind;
snow covered pines,
and there’s nothin’ like the sound
of you comin’ up behind,
puttin’ your little hands over my eyes…

If you walk ahead,
I will walk in your footsteps.
If you walk behind,
you can walk in mine

Laying in bed listening to Damien Rice on a Friday night after returning home from the Montana Americorps Service Symposium and enjoying a beautifully warm bike ride to the co-op; appreciating a quiet place that is starting to feel like home.
