I figure it took almost 10 months to get me this knotted up, why try…See More

About Me
Wife, Momma of 3, birth nerd
How long have you been dreading?
May 2011
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Twist and rip.
Lots of sea salt/water spray due to having very oily hair; this has helped me cut down from having to wash them every day.
