I can totally relate to that, congrats.

I have always liked the way they looked, but my reasoning for dreading were more emotional and spiritual than anything else. For me it was like a (extremely long overdue)dedication to myself as a witch,a way to connect with nature on a deeper level, to enhance my intuition, show my freedom. I started going though a lot of changes prior to starting my journey and dreading was another stepping stone for me on my path. I love them so much.

totally forgot another...well, not reason, but more bonus; locks add thickness and volume to hair, especially since less hair falls out and almost none does when it's all locked up! This is absolutely amazing to me - the thing is, a few years ago I lived in India and I had straightened my hair every day for around two years without protection product, backcombed it, hairsprayed it, been exposed to the indian sun constantly and add to that an eating disorder...well, my hair was falling out in clumps. I lost so much of my hair. It became ridiculously thin - to the point that after I came back to England, I still backcombed it constantly to give it the volume that normal hair has naturally. It was the kind of thing that people thought it was my natural hair and when it was flat or I went swimming they realised just how thin it was; if I put it all into a ponytail, it was about a third of the amount most people with thin hair had.

So, the fact that dreadlocking my hair means it gets natural volume simply for what it is has been a lifesaver to my hair and head, really.

In a nutshell, I've been growing a bit in confidence, and my whole life plan of passing my a-levels, going to university and becoming a doctor with a stable, normal life has been chucked out the window. Because I've seen so many new exciting things this year (in the realms of spirituality and arts mostly) that I wouldn't be able to turn back to an orthodox lifestyle.

My baby dreads are reflecting that to the extent of I do what I want, for me, because I am not as afraid to be myself anymore, despite what people think I should do (including to get a job etc). My friend talked about getting natural dreadlocks (and this friend has been a penniless wanderer around england for many months now) and I've looked it up and been hooked ever since. I've also felt so liberated not using chemical shampoos and conditioners now (in fact I spent about a month before dreading my hair adjusting it to water washing only; it went through a period of greasiness and now it's like before but so much better and healthier!).

I've also always had problems with the way my hair looks ever since I became a teen and now I just love my hair. I honestly love it so much. My dreads are my babies.

And finally the spiritual aspect...I follow a somewhat pagan path - at least that would be the general classification - and it fits so well because I feel like I'm becoming, to put frankly and cheesily, more at one with nature. Not to mention the fact that when left to its own devices, hair becomes as tree roots! Wow! I still can't get over how amazing just that is, really. I actually didn't know dreadlocks were the natural state of things until this year. And I've seen myself with dreadlocks in meditation now, too, which I must admit made me so ridiculously happy.

I'm just totally enjoying the journey really.

Hey guys,


Introduce Yourself

I've only just started dreading my hair naturally, I adore the concept of dreads, I seriously think it so brilliant that left to its own devices hair does such a beautiful thing. I'm only 2 weeks in, alas, but you guys can have a look at my un-brushed, half-tied-up hair in the meantime. :) a big HELLO to everyone!
