Introduce Yourself

Thank you Shannon. Unfortunately, I didn't take progression photos, wish I had. My first two years I was either pregnant/sick or sleep deprived, haha. Didn't feel much like documenting the misery ;)

What a lovely story! Thank you for that. My dreads have certainly gone through the toddler years right along with my daughter. Crazy times. During those adventuresome teen years I will certainly remember your advice!

blue your so pretty and look so much like someone i know

i knew a woman whos dad started his dreads the day she was born too

i met her when she was 46

his beard dreads grew so long they kept breaking off enough that he made a pillow for her out of his beard dreads

her dads been living in the jungles of belize while she married a marine and was living in germany

but her dad kept growing his from the day she was born and well havent heard from her in years but if hes still alive they must be a good 30 feet ..

dreads are kike infants whgen u grow them naturaly start off unformed within you then slowly take form and come out and evolve frominfants to wild teens and its like your raising a family on your head

just remember those wild teen years in fondness it will prepare you for when your daughters 13 and getting a lil loopy and crazy herself lol

Introduce Yourself

Greetings of peace to all you lovely people,

I joined this site years ago, but didn't have easy access to a computer at the time so didn't get to join in on the conversations. But now I do, so wanted to say "hello!" and offer many thanks to Soaring Eagle and all of you here. This site taught me all I know about dreadlocks and has helped me immensely on my journey. I started my dreadlocks four years ago when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. I loved the idea that they would grow along with her and true to life, they are as wild and free as she is. I went the natural/neglect route and so glad I did. They have taught me so much about letting go and trusting in the natural order of things. Here they are today:

I'm really looking forward to finally being able to interact with this beautiful community.

In Peace, Erica (Blue Swallow)

new dreads anti itch and conditioners from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

This is really exciting! I love their shampoo bars and have been hoping they'd make a conditioner. I need some moisture up in here! Especially living in this dry Southern California desert. Yay!

General Talk

I wish I was tech savvy and could help out in a real way. I did put a dummy listing up, for when it's needed.

Hey there SE,

i just opened a profile on the ww3 site, but see your comment and realize that's not the new site. I was hoping to help out in some way (why I opened the profile). I don't have any programming or technical experience, but I'd like to help if there's something I can do. I am very interested in the shop features, so maybe I could help with testing there? Let me know if there's something I can do.

Harmony's Totally natural Dread Timeline in Progress ***17 MONTH UPDATE!!***


Member Journals and Timelines

I so understand the "Ah! my hair is never going to grow again!" feeling after having such long hair. Mine stopped shrinking somewhere between 18 months and 2 years. Then had about a 6 month period of no shrinkage/no growth. Now after 4+ years I'm getting some noticeable length back.

Harmony Moon said:

Thanks! I appreciate that. <3

Your dreads are awesome! When did they start to grow again?? Mine don"t do anything but shrink. I even have some thinner dreads on the sides that are like only 3 inches long!! O_o

Blue Swallow said:

They are so beautiful! I had the same experience with shrinkage that you did. I started with hair past my waist and it shrank up around my shoulders just like yours. Mine ended up pretty think like yours too, letting them do their own thing. I think they're gorgeous on you!
