that day when you had dreads...or it appeared so.


General Talk

it is fabulous isnt it :D? all i did with my hair before dreads was put it up in a ponytail or bun. thats part of the reason i wanted dreads. i knew that there would be more styling options i would be happier with. its funny now that i mention it, because i feel i neglected my hair then and im taking care of it and appreciating it more now.

That fabulous day occurred at around the three-month mark for me. Nobody had ever commented on the many changes happening atop my head, and then one day I received three compliments while at work! Eh, but to be fair, my hair was straight, dyed red, and styled ever-so-meticulously on a daily basis before I started neglecting...the difference was blatantly obvious, haha.

We're headed to Cape Cod MA :) Pretty excited! Miss having a beach you can actually swim in! I live on a little island so we are surrounded by water but obviously way to cold to get in lol. I grew up in Tennessee so I hear ya about the humidity. At this point I could care less hahaha bring on the heat! I have family in Fresno :/ the air there is sooo gross! Me and my son both got sick instantly! Was crazy.

so was there a particular day for any of you where you looked in the mirror at your hair and said "holy crap those are dreads". it happened to me about a month ago. people had been commenting on my dreads and i looked in the mirror at each of them in the mirror individually and was taken aback almost. they really look like dreads now! the paddles have rounded out, the ends have either blunted or rounded or are nice and wispy and its all so dreadlike now. my first mature dread i had has now when from about 1/2 in diameter to 1 inch or a little less in diameter. and its really cool. i was just wondering if anyone else had that point of realization...

Tell me about your Dread Decorations?


Introduce Yourself

i have lots of semi permanent glass beads that i put in early in my hourney and they got stuck. i have an earring that was my late grandmothers in my hair. i had another one that was a turquoise cross in there too but i felt it was catching on too many other hairs and breaking them so i took it out. ive had a metal spring in there, my mom crocheted some dread wraps for my, i have one of my dread that i use to tie the rest up and it has a bead on it that i just dont feel right with out. i took it out and something about the lack of weight or osmething bothered me. i had gotten so used to that bead on that dread that i just didnt feel right with out it. my husband recently wrapped sterling silver wire around and in a dread and it looks so cool!! i have a silver ring that i love but cant wear without getting a rash so i put it on one of my dreads and its pretty cool. i get to wear it still. i love adorning my hair. i make a time of it. i will sit down after the babes asleep and decorate my hair lol. i need to take some pics or something.

i disagree completely with mike

i went through hell when young with my parents forcing me to dress the way they wanted me to dreass and do things the way they wanted me to do them

i was bullied every day because of the way i was forced to dress

i was tolds " you can have your own identity when your not living under our roof"

i say fuck what your parents want if u need dreads to be happy then dread

teen years are hard enough to survive withoit being able to feel like you

now im not saying to say f u mom im doing it anyway (unless it came to that)

but search the site for

letter to parents

or

convincing parents

edit 1 of my letters

they have so far convinced 100% orf the parents

you do not need to accept their ignoranvce yu can change their attituedes with facts
