The journey begins AGAIN

Posted on June 8, 2010 at 11:39am 0 Comments

So lately, too much bad things were happening around me. I ended up getting frustrated with my developing locks and brushed them out (that took a couple days of combing btw) then I felt like I didnt belong here because I was dreadless. (Which I know isnt the case, but its hard to get over yourself sometimes lol) So I disappeared for a while.

Also lately, I've realized that life is too short. I cant keep procrastinating things, because life doesnt wait. It will pass you by if you let it.… Continue

my journey.... (non hair related)

Wow, I have been away from this site for way to long.

First off I would like to personally apologize to lonnie and roxanne, sorry it took so long guys.


Well I no longer have my dreads. All combed out. Back combing is lame. That's how I started mine before I found this place. I had some particularly stubborn dreads, I palm rolled them. Mostly just broke off a bunch of my hair. So I miss my hair but I think I will give it some time before I try again for dreads, and… Continue

Holy Moly Changes!

Posted on September 30, 2009 at 11:14pm 7 Comments

Life has been full of so many changes lately! And it all stems to my hair. Well in my mind anyways!

So I backcombed some dreads. Then I found this site. And reading about all the natural stuff I was a little skeptical. Then I tried it. And it's amazing! And I figure, well, if this natural wash is awesome in my hair, and leaving my hair be to do it thing has worked. I betcha other natural things would work awesome too!

So I read the thread about everyones diet, and I think to myself,… Continue

The dread process is so exciting!!!!

Posted on September 22, 2009 at 2:16pm 4 Comments

So far I backcombed my hair about 3 wks ago. And now my hair is finally starting to lock up and it's so exciting! I found the coolest little loop yesterday too, It's just so awesome watching this process happen! I think if I were to do it again I would definitely go natural. Backcombing leads to freaking out. Well for me anyways, I'd see a hair that came loose and start to get nervous. But after reading tons of discussion threads about doing it natural and just leave them alone, I began to… Continue

Hes not a little guy by no means, he's about 10 foot long but should weigh about twice what he does, I think I'll probably start him on antibiotics also cause I think hes got viral issues, bubbles coming out his nose. Bad Sign.
