My Natural Dreads Timeline-Dreadlocks can form fast with neglect


Member Journals and Timelines

Sooo it's been 7 weeks now! sorry I suck at updating. But, here you go, the continuation of my dreadlocks adventure:

My shirt says "This is what a feminist looks like." I am not wearing a bra, sorry.

I don't know if you can see it, but there is a large gap in the middle of my hair. Awkward shrinkage.

My camera sucks. Sorry. Oh well. Maybe you can see how crazy it's going.

Me showing off some of the shrinkage back there. You can see the sectioning that has happened.

My craziest loopy guy!! :)

So, at this point, mostly the underneath back of my hair has dreaded fully (not locked up of course, but you know what I mean). However, the top is beginning it's journey at this point--here's an example!

This is a terrible picture because my camera. However, this is my biggest, thickest dread. I call it Big Mama. Big Mama is thick and huge and nasty. I love it. I don't know if I should put a bead on her at this point? I don't know how beads work. But yeah.

The front here is beginning to knot up too!

Many of my dreads look like this. Lots of shrinkage, big clumps of loopy madness. Not sure what to do with them, haha.

This is my favorite dread!! AH! It's awesome. :)

What happened to that retarded dread, you ask? Well, I put a bead on it, and it's still retarded. I took it off now, but, eh. The rest is beginning to knot up at this point. I'm hoping it will dread at some point, because right now it still feels like a kind of harsh mess of clumpy hair. Not soft and cuddly. :(

So, that's it for now! I'll be back in a week or more. :)

My most shrunken up dread. It's nutty!

One of the bigger loops I could find.

Also, I don't think my camera is very good, and I also don't know how to use it, so excuse the shitty pictures.

To begin: I had a severe issue with brushing my hair. I would brush it probably upwards of 50 times a day. Because of this it's damaged.

Yes yes that's right, I'm going natural! It's been two weeks now, and I have probably ~20 baby dreads, and the rest are already sectioned off and ready to form!

Here are a few pictures to whet your appetite

Before dreading. That's me at the bottom making the stupid face. This is from December but it's literally the most recent picture I could find where I didn't look too terrible.

Here's my hair after 1 day. As you can see it's starting to section already! I think.

Here I am on day 7! My hair's a little more sectiony and I have an example of a few large loops starting. I have pictures of little baby dreads I had, but you can hardly tell they are baby dreads at all so I won't upload them here.

Yay! More hair pictures and another shot of a baby dread. Like I said, I probably have about 20 of them now, but obviously I won't post them all.

I can't wait to see what my hair will look like a week from now, let alone a month!

Going natural is so incredibly rewarding. I know if you want dreads, it might seem like it will take forever, but trust me, I am SO glad I did it this way!! I would never turn back!

Bueno!


Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone!I've made a few posts on here already but tomorrow marks the real first day of my dread journey. Haven't decide if I'm going totally natural or transitioning to tnr after a bit of sectioning happens.I have a lot of thin hair, so it's kind of medium thickness. It's slightly wavy and brown. Woohooooo. I just recently bought a very pretty wool tam and two bars of Maylee's!! They should be getting here soon.I just thought I'd express nervousness and excitement about this journey... I'm excited to see the stages of my hair and to really free myself from it, but on the other hand I'm nervous about the responses of society (especially my family). I'm also chubby (gained 50 lbs in college) so I'm afraid my attractiveness will completely be eliminated once I begin this journey.That's about it. :) So excited! Going to start posting picture soon too of course.

Where to get dread beads?


Dread Accessories

I'm throwing out the comb on April 2nd!! SO EXCITED!

I'm thinking about the future though when I might need to put beads on my dreads. I'm really poor and I know I'll need more than like 5 beads. When I go searching for beads they want like 2-5 bucks a pop for that crap! I can't afford that!

I was wondering if anyone knows where to purchase any of these things wholesale? Like a huge bag for cheap? I'm planning on putting stuff that I just find in them when they get more mature, but I'm just looking for things to put on to hold them together or whatever in the future (that's what they're for right?)

AHHH! Thanks.

yes i checked the f.a.q.'s lol


Introduce Yourself

It's a sea salt spray, so you just make it, put it into a spray bottle, and spray it into your hair before you wash it (within 2 hours). Don't worry about it. Just relax and let your hair do its thing.

To dry, just shake your hair out and let it dry naturally. Once it's dry you can put a tam on. Or sleep with wool on your pillow. These are ways that can speed up dreading :)
