I LOVE my wraps! They bring so much color and cheeriness to my hair!

I take a really long piece of cotton embroidery floss, fold it in half, tie it around the dread, and using the dread, I braid the 2 pieces of string and dread til the end. I tie it off about 32,000 times, then that’s that. Super easy!

I had the wraps in for a bit over a month, and decided it was time for them to go. I was worried about them permanently dreading into my dreads.
I don’t know if that would happen or not, but I didn’t wanna take any chances. They weren’t too hard to remove.
It would seem that I was a little too careless when cutting one out though. Woops.

Fishtail dreads…trying to not look like a dirty, pot smoking Hippie for my first time meeting our potential Landlord.
I’d say I pulled it off.

Saying goodbye to our RV. We sure are gonna miss her. (Don’t worry, she only went in storage.)

Since my dreads technically turned 4 months old on moving day, I had to cheat and use the pics from 3 days later…after we were settled in…
…after I had a moment to breathe and to take photos, lol.
