New Color for 10-Month Old Dreads


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”).

PROJECT 666 Staples: Cropped sweater (S7), Yoga tribal pants (P1), Boots (B1)




Cropped sweater: Cryoflesh, Yoga tribal pants: Creaturre (Etsy), Boots: FitFlop (brand)


Silver eye pendant: Ebay, Black cross earrings: gift


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,

Dasia Denise

  1. Oooh that is a very gorgeous color on you! I really like it. I also like how you added photos of your dreads from start to recent. Nice touch!

    1. Thanks! I can’t believe my locs are almost a year old. Can’t wait until they get longer. 🙂

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Samantha, I hope you’re doing okay. It’s hard, they become so much a part of our lives and they share so much with us … but then they have to go. I give you my deepest sympathy for your loss 🙁

    The hair looks amazing. You remind me of a comic book heroine!

    1. Thank you so much, L. The kindness that people have shown me is tremendous. Samantha was my first pet, so this is my first time losing a furry friend. And thanks for the compliments about my hair. It’s nice to change things up a bit. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much. I was ready for a new color, but that doesn’t mean that I was ready to let go of the blood red. 😀
