My locks were really born sometime in the month of May 2010 when I stopped brushing my hair, which I had been neglectful about doing for sometime anyway, I work at a campground as a kayaking instructor, spend months living in a tent, brushing wasn't up there in my priorities) but it was then that I made the conscious decision to put the brush away. At that point it had less to do with my dread journey and more to do with me "not giving a shit" as mentioned above, but I think it probably helped in the process. However, my dread journey definitely evolved on July 26 when I returned from hookah fest at Nelson's Ledges and decided to (with the help of my sister) spend 4 hours separating my existing knots into smaller sections and backcombing them for some added lockkage.I have many dreaded friends who have helped me along the way, several who tell me they are impressed with my dread progress. Since then I have used my aloe vera plant and my yucca plant religiously, as well as some oils for my scalp and TEA. I brew rosemary tea and put it in a spritz bottle and add sea salt. spritz this jazz on my dreads all the time and they stay pretty tight.I think If I were to change one thing it would be that about a week or two into getting my locks (after backcombing) following my first couple showers with them in i began to feel like they were becoming "undone" and loose. I had already been warned against dread wax, so I tried "dread buttta" that I got from a friend. TEMPORARY fix. I would only recommend using this shit if you have to go to a wedding. It leaves your hair pretty yucky and does not help with the dreading process. Sometimes waiting out the frizz is the best thing you can do, enough cannot be said about the benefits of having a good tam handy!All and all I loveeee my dreads. They are truly a simple and natural way to have your hair. They are gorgeous!! And obviously there is a lot more to9 dreads than your hair in ways of culture. haha I really wish more people had dreads =], It has potential to get tough sometimes I think, especially if you're not around a lot of other dreadies for support, but that's what this community is all about.Keep dreading! Love is strong.Photobucketfuzzy dreads in the first couple weeksPhotobucketsome progressPhotobucketafter a few months.- this is my favorite way to wear my dreads, I've been french braiding my hair a long time to keep it out of my face and because its an easy fix in the outdoors. I though I was going to miss that but I do it with my dreads!Photobucketpretty current photo, about a month agoI love my dreads and this dreadlock forum has definitely been an excellent addition to my dread community!

I should have prefaced this by saying I'm really only interested in extending two of my dreadlocks. I had bangs when I got my dreads and some of the area i dreaded in front in abnormally short in comparison to my whole head of locs. So much so that they are the only two locs that stick straight up while the others are content to sit flat. Now, I will admit it is mostly for cosmetic purposes(aside perhaps from the danger of pointy dreads sticking up out of my head=]), and under most circumstances I'm very supportive of the points soaringeagle makes but I'm very temped to give it a shot. If its any consolation I would be using my sisters hair! I wouldn't feel comfortable putting other peoples hair in my head and I've already asked her. She has PLENTY of hair. haha. I feel very connected to her anyway.Thanks for the info though. I'll try to do some more research. I haven't made any decisions yet.

I'm close to sure that this topic hasn't been dicussed on the forums yet. at least not from the threads that I've searched through. So I turn to you guys, the dread community.-What is the deal with dread extensions? Can they be permenant or are they always made from synthetic hair that comes out? How are they done?are they recommended or can they perhaps be bad for you hair?Sorry for the litany of questions. But whoever has insight or advice please post. I'm totally interested. Thanks!! peace
