Now my hair is really starting to become very "dready". I recived my dreadshampoo a couple of weeks ago and it works really well!
After each wash I feel it become more and more tangeld, it feels great!
I'm really looking forward to be able to use beautiful beads and my coral and I want crystals in my hair aswell. It's going to be awesome!

Some days it seems like this journey is going nowhere fast, but looking back at a few earlier photos says otherwise. My hair is getting quite wild now and seems to be forming loose clumps. Just before Christmas, I did put in a few TNR dreads just to prove to my husband that it was indeed possible for my hair to dread. I tied them off with wool yarn and quite like them.It alsoappears that I am getting better at the mystical art of taking selfies!
**Before anybody freaks out and tells me what wool will do in my hair...I know. I am a fiber artist and am well aware of the felting properties of wool.**

I have had my dreadlocks for five months (in a few days)! I get super excited every time I look in the mirror They are changing a lot.
There's two dreads at the base of my neck that have sort of congo'dtogether without me noticing, so it's toolate toseparatethem. It's going to become a very thick dreadlock over time
My natural hair color is pretty much completely grown in, but the tips of my dreads are still very blond which caused a really cool affect on the color of my hair. It almost looks like I have highlighted dreads, but they all have some blond and mostly my darker brown color. I used to really hate my brown hair, and I would always dye it when I had regular hair. BUT ever since I've started the dreading process, I've learned to love my natural color. It makes me feel a lot better about myself too.
I'm still washing once a week with Dr. Bronners although I usually go a week and a half before I wash them now. I'm not sure if that is just because I'm more comfortable with my dreads, but I don't feel a need to wash more frequently. My scalp has only been itchy after I first started my dreads. Ever since the first two months have passed I haven't had any problems with that.
Also, I wanted to review the Lock Magic Locking Gel that I have purchased from one of this websites shops. I did get the scented one (I think it was called karma) and I really enjoy the way it smells and the way it makes my hair smell. It has really helped some of my loose hair start to lock together. I have been applying it once a day every few days, and I don't use very much of the product when I apply it. When I get up in the mornings I notice the loose hairs already knotting up where I applied the gel. I am very impressed with it, and I really love the way it makes my hair smell. AND the scent lasts for hours
Okay, now I'm just rambling.
Either way, I am so grateful for my experiences throughout my dreadlock journey and all of things I am learning along the way.

As of two days ago, my babies are a year old! My hubby said he's surprised I lasted this long because, as he says, I change my mind often. I used to dye my hair and I'd go with a new color every three months or so.
I explained that it's because I feel more like myself than ever. I'm happy.
I do look at other photos and wonder why mine got so short so quickly, whether they are progressing the way they "ought" to, and whether I should start fresh. Then I remind myself that every journey is different, that my dread babies are just doing what is natural for them, and that I need to continue to be patient and trust that the process is as it should be.
I owe many thanks to the community here, for without you I might have lost faith months ago. This is truly a wonderful family of dreadies and I'm so very pleased and blessed to be part of it. <3

So this morning, the hubby and I were sitting on the bed playing with the babies when suddenly he bursts into laughter.Breathlesslyhe managed to gasp, "Your hair looks like sh*t!"
Not that I run around looking quite so messy. I'm really loving the way I look in my new wool tam.
