Hello, all. With being sick and then having to put my sweet girl down, it’s been a rough week. But I’m ready to get back to blogging and settling on a daily routine for myself.
I decided to (finally) bleach my roots and add a new color, “Atomic Pink” by Special Effects. I kept the “Blood Red” color (also by Special Effects) on the ends of my dreadlocks. I wasn’t sure about the brightness of the pink, but after getting dressed in my gothic garb, I love it!
Here’s what I wore. I wore a black camisole under the cropped sweater, which is not pictured (I consider the camisole “underwear”).
Here’s my face. Just eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, blush, and lipstick. I added 4 tiny dots on the sides of my eyes:
Finally, how my locs have progressed so far:
I’m happy that I decided to bite the bullet and dye my roots. I was hesitant, because I wanted my locs to mature a bit before bleaching and dying. I think this new color will look even better, once my roots start to loc.
Love & Shimmies,
