Death of the dreads

Copyright Charles Harry MckenziMackenzieA lot of people have been asking similar questions, understandably.

Human: Oh my gosh, you cut your dreads!
Elna: Yeah, I have hair again!
Human: Why did you cut them?
Elna: It just seemed like the best time I guess.
Human: How is it?
Elna: I miss them already but it’s a new experience. Yay.

All gone. It was a long and all kinds of tedious process, but what can you do. New things!


To be honest it’s not as liberating as everyone assumes. I really loved my dreads and they fit to me. But for various (long) reasons, it was ‘time’. So, as the most-of-the-time-optimist that I am, I’m trying to love the new hair equally.
Grow into it you could say. (bad pun alert!)

Having Jess there, who made my dreads and cut off here own made it a whole lot more fun. And, now I have beautiful pics of the whole thing, thanks to the lovely Charles and Mia.
