Just started my journey... Yesterday.

By: Crystal Miller
Posted in:
I've had dreadlocks before. I ripped and twisted my way to a head of thin and fuzzy dreads and took them out a few weeks later. Then I tried braiding in synthetic dreadlocks I got online but they left me feeling fake and like my head was a million pounds too heavy, so they only lasted a week. Now, I start my journey. The other times didn't even feel real to me. I'm going all natural/neglect, and already enjoying it. (I'm only one day in tho O.o). I finally feel like I have chosen the right path for myself. If anyone have any tips or encouragement, it is more then welcome. And if you can answer this question for me, I will be forever in your debt... Well in your debt for at least a month. :X. I want to make homemade beads. Since my hair has not dreaded yet can I still put beads in? Will it help the sectioning process? Will it slow down the dread process? I already have some nots forming in the back where I sleep, can I put beads on them to keep them from becoming one huge knot? I just want to put pretty beads in my hair, is that so much to ask?!

Glad you are excited about this journey. Sure beads will help, just pay attention to the section and what it is doing, if a big loop forms, you might want to move the bead or take it out. Gosh, to make beads, just look around the house or outdoors, a drill bit and sand paper are a wonderful friend. Go to a thrift store and look at necklaces with cool beads, use those, just make the holes bigger!...peace

Now you are in my debt!

I have some tips for you. Although I started mine with T&R after my hair naturally separated, there are tips on there that are useful for you:
