Wow SE I was suprised and honored I made the cut lol! You have been such an inspiration to me, without you I may of never found the courage to take the leap into dreadom. I honestly never new that u could do this naturally. I thought like most people without dreads that u had to do something or add something to your hair. It just never felt right so I never did it, till I found this site. Awesome little montage u put together!

After two months without a comb my hair's a mess. Half-dreading, half loose, some bits are long, others have shrunk. Every day it's a different sort of mess. So it's very affirming to read this.

I looked at a 'before' photo of my hair earlier today, and thought: Neat... straight ... BORING! Now I'm starting to love the mess.Thank you, Soaring Eagle. Lovely selection of pictures, too.

treeofdreads i guess i got lucky when i 1st was exposed to dreads it was old school rastas artists poets many living in squat houes oh and ofcourse ramona and the ret of the africa family (aka move) and notthe other punk kid who put toothpaste and peanutbutter in their hair to try to imitate the rastas they saw..that and going to gatherings watching ppl dreads form accidently just by playing praying and meditating in the woods without a comb so my 1st experiences and impressions were al of the more natural and spiritual variety

I have to say, I don't like this messy stage, simply because I have all my hair waving around in my face all the time and it's annoying. But I understand what you're saying, cos so many people are used to the idea of perfection and wanting things to be perfectly as they imagined it, but there's something beautiful and special in letting things do what they're meant to do without inteference. You have a way with words, SE :) and great pictures

Thank you. I was having a few days of being unhappy. My dreads went loose, lots of flyaways and elongated. I was feeling the impatience and disappointed. Seeing all the wonderful stages of dreads has be re-energized to keep going. :)
