Dread update week #3

They're doing great if I may say so. I have to pull them apart every evening and that's a good sign I think. Sometimes pulling apart hurts and I don't like the sounds of ripping hairs but I know that I must do this, otherwise I will end up with one giant dread on my head.

To help me find the roots I got some beads on top of my head. Because I don't sleep on the top part it didn't get much friction and I think that's why they don't dread up as much as the sides of my head.
I get a lot of compliments and when I tell them that this is just a frizzy phase and that they become mature over time they say that they like them now already, which is soooo nice to hear! Thank you all! I'm truly blessed with the best.





I got a lot of questions when I'm going to dread my bangs but I quite like it how it looks now so I'm not going to that now.
I also want to mention that I reallllyyyy love my sweater! I never thought I would buy yellow. ha ha!

Thank you for watching,
Hugs ❤

Dyeing hair with henna


Okay what do you need?
  • Henna
  • Lemon juice
  • Bowl or pan
  • Spoon or fork
  • Hands
  • Gloves
  • Comb
  • Cellophane and headband to secure
  • Time


Put the henna in the bowl or pan. 100gr for short hair, 150gr for long hair, but I don't weigh it I eyeball the amount of 200gr because I have long hair and dreads now.


Add lemon juice and stir until you have a yogurt consistency. I add lemon juice for a bright red color. If you want a more brown look you can add coffee or tea. To make the effect less add more water to your ratio. I use only lemon juice and no water.




Put a test dot on your body.


Leave overnight to enhance the impact of the lemon juice.



No weird color or skin irritation? Then you are good to go. ( I left the dot on for 2 hours.)


Dye your roots first, then the rest of your hair.


Leave in for as long as you like. Keep in mind that blond hair will color much faster than dark hair. If you're unsure test a little bit of hair from your brush first. I don't know exactly how little time blondes have to leave it in but I guess maybe 15 minutes is a good start?! I'll keep mine in for 6 to 8 hours. Or when I can't stand it anymore ;) I finished dyeing round noon so that's easy counting. ha ha
Afterwards you can put cellophane around your head to prevent henna from dripping.


Don't forget: Be proud of your cellophane head.


And don't forget to treat yourself with a sandwich.


Be proud of your cellophane head especially when your mail woman brings you some packages. ha ha
2 kilo henna. ha ha


And the results:



Turned out pr-et-ty good if I may say so myself.
Thanks for reading!

Wonderful Weekend


Wowzers, what a great weekend I had! I'm still reminiscing.
Friday I went to Eindhoven with a friend for the concert of Disclosure. After a short chat and fooling around, we left at quarter to 10 what was casually late because it actually began at ten o'clock, whatever. Also did not matter because we had fun anyway though. When we got there everyone was already inside of the main hall so we could get a locker very fast. Yaay!
The whole experience was sooo exciting :) after a month of wishing it was already the 21st of March.


After getting something to drink we decided to go a bit closer to the stage. We met really nice and funny people and the vibe was positive which is always a plus. We had an awesome time and sadly the concert wasn't that long.


Around midnight we took a cab back to downtown Eindhoven. We were meeting with another friend who lives in Eindhoven and he showed us some pubs. We had a blast.
We got back by the hotel around half 5, and I fell fast asleep immediately. The next morning we had to get out before noon, but I had the worst hangover ever. Now that I think of it, I feel the pain in my head again.
After 4 hours of traveling by train and delay, I got home finally. This is a photo of my sandwich.


At home I tried to sleep away my hangover but I couldn't. I did feel better though.
That night we went out to dinner with other friends. We got delicious sushi. I love sushi.
A few friends and my boyfriend went further for a beer but I decided wisely to get some sleep.


After a good night's rest we went to my boyfriends grandparents on Sunday afternoon. His granddad turned 78. The party was very nice and a great closure of a fantastic weekend.
I wish all my weekend were like this :D

Thanks for reading this,
Hugs, 


For the people who want to know what I wore to the concert, a photo below.
I paired it with a shirt that says parental advisory yahdieyadie, MAC Heroine on my lips and my Jordans on my feet.

Dread update week #2


They're getting craaazyy! Yaay!
It's been 2 weeks since I got dreads and I love them to bits. I washed them several times now and they luckily didn't came out. Some parts are really loose though but I thought let's go neglect with them. Every night I spray some salt water at my roots and I do a little wool rubbing now and then.




Is it just me or do I see a little shrinkage already?
Thank you for taking a look here,
Hugs,

Stretching update 10mm/00g



I'm at my goal size! I´m done. For now ;)
The day before yesterday I put them in while I was in the shower. They went in smoothly yaaaay!!!
I was a bit scared though because the plugs I'm wearing a single flared and 'they' say that you shouldn't wear plugs with raised edges before it's fully healed. YOLO if I get blowouts I go back a size. They feel healthy, a bit sore but nothing special. Finally I will be able to wear these babies.
So sassy, so excite!





All plugs are crazy-factory except the hearts and rainbowswirls they're eBay and the Eevee ones are @_cordyceps_ available at her own etsy page.

Thank you for your time!
Hugs! ❤

Aaaand for the lovers of big photos:

Dread update week #1


So it might be a bit confusing that I've started over, counting updates, but I thought it would be logic to start counting from the whole head point. It's been a week now and bumps and loops are beginning to form. Especially around the nape area and the left side that I sleep on most. Separating the dreads is a must every night because after I got a shower earlier there was a serious congo forming already. I'm happy how they behave at the moment and find it a blessing that the loops and bumps are showing up.






Sorry for the overload on pictures but I couldn't decide which one to pick.
I'm looking forward to next week.
Thanks for your time!
Hugs, ❤
