"I will definitely be keeping a watchful eye out for massive dread formations. Its weird but I swear my hair feels happier already. It seems to be rejoicing in it's new found freedom. I don't think I have separated in almost a week.

I have decided to cease separating and just go completely free and wild! Although if I do start noticing a gigantic beaver tail or uni-dread there will be some action taken. Whenever I look in the mirror to do maintenance / separation, I just get overwhelmed by the messiness and am always unsure if I am separating too much or not enough. SO, I have decided, screw it, my hair will be allowed to do whatever it wants. I don't need to stress about it, all will be good. I'm barely 2 months and I…See More
I'm a mother of 3 amazing children.
I love music, nature, books, all forms of art (whether it be on canvas, body or formed), dreadlocks, laying on the grass, standing in the rain, hugging trees, digging in the dirt...my list of loves can go on and on and on.
I find just about everything fascinating.
I'm shy, honest, typically soft spoken with random bursts of craziness - dancing, singing, laughing maniacally, moments where I just won't shut up! lol
I love anyone and everyone who has a natural respect towards others and nature.
How long have you been dreading?
June 8, 2011
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Completely Natural. My hair is allowed to do whatever it wants, as long as it lets me keep it clean
Absolutely! As long as I can stalk you right back :) it is so fun for us to have twin journies going on. I'm loving this natural dreading process so far, the freedom it brings in addition to what it is teaching me about patience and being okay with where I'm at (not only in this process but in life in general too). Look forward to following your progress!
Hi Cora! Honored to be your first friend here <3 I came to this site a year ago with alot of questions and unease. It helped that I am a hairstylist...I learned what I needed to know very quickly. But, my hair had really no knots until almost 8 mos. in!!! I really wanted to give up...but, I just kept hanging on and believing :) Finally, as if over night...I had lots of babies everywhere! You ever need anything...don't hesitate...just a page away! Much love.
