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.

I am seeing changes already, my hair is usually super straight. I washed it for the first time this morning and I was afraid some of my "mess" would fall out, but it actually got even messier. I'll have my new wool tam finished in about an hour and will tuck the hair up before hubby gets home this afternoon.

A million reasons I haven't been here, but I am still going with my locking process and although it's been slow, they are coming along.
I'm looking forward to the new site, and the possibility of a functional mobile interface.
Missing you all and looking forward to meeting the new members when time is free again

So I've been naturally/ free form dreading my hair now for 1 year and 9 months..
And I have a ton of loose hairs that need to go into some of the sections/dreads.. (not re growth either)
I tried so many times tying them with little rubber bands to the dread I want it to attach to but the next day most of them come out the rubber band...I think I have a lot of loose hairs because I would tear my sections or hairs apart if it started dreading into the wrong section..
I would let those hair just become their own dread except most the hairs aren'tenoughto make a decent sized section, especially since most my sections/ dreads are super thick..
I know the crochet hook is bad for the hair but I was wondering if it would be that damaging to use it once to get those loose hairs in the dreads.. And if the crochet hook would work??
Or if there's another way..I was wondering if wrapping them would help too?

So yesterday I was driving home, and I guess I was a little close for comfort to the truck in front of me. 90% of the time, in the mountains, people will pull over and let you pass when you reach a turnout. The neo nazi pulled over and as I passed he yelled "SLOW DOWN N****R!!! We exchanged words and went our ways. I had a dream... Two actually...
#1. I was in a smoke shop and saw a HUGE tam. I asked the guy behind the counter, "How long til I can fit that one? 10 years?"
"I don't know. 20... 50..." he replied.
#2 I was with my mom again and possibly a friend I can't exactly recall. We were walking through a crowd of people and I realized we were at the Rainbow Gathering. My friend and mom weren't too thrilled but I was. I wandered off and when I was comfortable, I held out my arms and started flying just over the crowd. Someone yelled something at me, and while I don't recall what was said, negative or positive, I held my hand behind me and gave them a peace sign as I floated away.
So I guess I'm a long way from Nirvana... Or I need to calm down more...
