Learning to love my hair, a free form timeline.

Some of them are less than 3 inches they've shrank that much. Still have some loose/lightly knoted hair that continues to give the illusion of length.

Judgement and Stigmas


General Talk

I totally agree with SE here. It's the attitude that prevents a job from happening. I recently got a job making certified air craft. The day of my interview I went in with my hair down in all it's natty glory knowing I could perform the job and I got it. If someone gives me a funny look in public, just smile and go on, they're the one with a problem not you.

Six month update. I have been horrible about keeping it up. I actually stopped caring and trying to compare my hair and it's progress to other peoples. It's been amazingly freeing. Summers I'm always busy outside and I recently landed a pretty cool job, with my natty glory!

Every 1-4 days. If it's dirty it gets washed. Regular predread shampoo seems to work best for me. I know it's not recommended but I also condition it once or twice a month.

I love your hair too! If I may ask, how often do you wash it, and with what?

My favorite babies and a question


Dreadlock Picture Gallery

A few decent pics of my babies. Anyone have any tips on getting good pictures of these little guys? My kids try but to me, most of the pictures don't show what they're trying to capture.

No rush, they'll still be there knotting up =D I'll try to get someone to help me get some decent pictures of the underneath. I can feel and see the dreads but it doesn't translate for some reason when my daughter takes pics.

If I had started this when I put down my brush it would probably be named something else. As it is I'm 5 weeks into free form/natural/neglect dreads. To understand why I'm learning to love my hair you need to understand how I've viewed it most of my life. My main is THICK, coarse, curly/wavy, frizzy. It's always been unresponsive to styling and for the last 7 years I've worn it in a braid to keep it from knotting/tangling. April of 2013

I've always admired dreads but was afraid of what people would think, say or how I may be judged. After some research and discussing my decision with my kids I quit brushing March 23 of 2014.

After one week it was pretty well separated, I even had some baby dreads forming in the back underneath.

Week 2 I saw some sections tighten and more knots forming.

Week 3 I forgot to do my Sunday update pictures =( Bad me. on 4/10 some lovely craziness going on tho.

4/17 I was smiling at this guy, it was twisted back on itself and knotted =D

4/20 was 4 weeks.

5 Weeks, I find I'm loving the freedom of not worrying about what it looks like. If it knots that's a good thing right? I feel like my hair is doing what it was meant to do and not having to fight it into some sort of hairstyle is so liberating.

How to tell friends and family your dreading your hair?


General Questions

I just took a picture of my hair and posted I was going to let it turn into dreads. Some of my friends are like "say what?!" But I'm not friends with judgemental people so it's not a big deal to them. I did discuss it with my kids though. I told them I was thinking about it and asked if they were "okay" with it, because I have the greatest kids they are totally supportive.
