I've been thinking about dreads for a little over a year, and I just recently decided (3 days ago) that I was ready! Since I'm not one that has much patience once I've decided on something ... tomorrow is the big day!

I'm SO excited!!!

I really wanted to find a "loctician" with an artistic soulful vision/expression to help me create the perfect set, however, all attempts to locate someone somewhat near to me were futile. So, a friend of mine just got hers done today, and she's graciously offered to help with mine tomorrow.

It's quite funny, actually. I photo blogged about my dreads the other day here, and the very next night I got an email from my friend saying that she had been thinking about dreads, finally got her husband on board with the idea, and Sunday was the big day for her. She hadn't seen my photo blog yet, nor did she know I had even been thinking about them, so it was just pure coincidence that we both made the decision at the same time!

I found the above photo posted by another blogger who is going to get dreads, and I fell in love with it! It's very much like the style of dreads I want ... smaller, flowy, wispy.

I posted this on my photoaday blog for today, but I'll post it here as well ... will be one of the last shots of my hair before the dreads go IN!
