They're staying folks don't worry!
I've decided that I'm gonna go all over pink, same pink that's on a few in my profile pic so it should look awesome.
What's keeping me going is knowing that in a year or so they will start looking epic and that I've gotten through the worst phase where it doesn't even look like dreads. Talking to people has helped too as its made me think about what's causing the urge to take things out on my hair so I'm actually starting to deal with that rather than just doing something that I will instantly regret. I do love how the process of growing dreadlocks does that in a way.
SaveFerris - I know! Just when will it bloody happen?!!!!
