Hi all. Just a quick one to share my excitement. I've started dreading. 7 down so far! I know it sounds crazy but I'm feeling different already. I know I am going to be faced with lots of disapproval from friends and especially family. As well as judgement from other mums who think dreadlocks are only for hippy kids not a 33 year old mother with 3 kids. It has taken 16 years to get the courage to dread my hair. Throughout that time I have tried and taken it out due to the worry of what others think and feel about me. I am now celebrating my freedom from the constraints of others opinions and judgements mostly due to my kids and my husbands support to be who I am and want to be. So I raise my glass to all the mums that chose to be who they are and the great kids and husbands, like mine, who support them. Better get back to the dreading! Xox

Hi soaring eagle...twist and rip! Tried it a few different ways and this seems to be the way my hair likes best. It's slow going as I suffer from fibromyalgia and doing to much aint good. 13 done for today though. That's not to bad! Yes...I will make them jelous! Peace and love...x

It's great to know I'm not alone! I'm 32, married and mom of 3 girls under 6. I just started my dreading journey, just washing and separating. My husband isn't too thrilled, but maybe he'll come around.

You are all kids! ;-)

I'm 47 and a mom of two girls who are all grown up (18 and 20 years old). My husband and girls don't mind my dreads, the rest of the family don't mention them at all.

wondering how long did you want locks before actually deciding to do it?
