Finally got around to an introduction...
I've been a member here for a few months, have made a handful of posts. I usually just lurk around forums for a while until i get comfortable enough to post.
I didn't intend to have dreads really. I did think about it at one time years ago and my cousin suggested she help me do them with wax but i passed. I haven't used shampoo for like 5 years now and just this spring my hair really became it's own entity and wanted so bad to dread, i fought it for a month or so, painfully brushing it out. Then i just said, "screw this, let it do what it wants", within the day i had my first dread starting.
It's been almost 6 months now. The first three weeks i always put it up in a bun durn the day because it was a mess, but after that i just embraced the wildless of it to the horror of my mother. Lol.
A little about me. I'm 26, live on a tiny Island in Canada that thrives on tourism and the ocean that surrounds it. I have two crazy, beautiful, wild little boys i'm raising by myself. One is almost 3, the other almost a year. I'm one of those natural "crunchy" moms who carries their baby's around instead of putting them in a car seat/swing/stoller, uses cloth diapers and elimination communication, and breastfeeds into toddlerhood.
