How long have you been dreading?

Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
I started by backcombing but they fell out. My hair decided it wants to be more organic, so now it's taken over and is doing it's own thing...

600 Days of Dread...

Posted on March 22, 2013 at 11:30pm 3 Comments

Wow, when you put it that way... 600 messy, outrageous, bad hair, good hair, untamed, annoying, painful, wonderful days of dread. That makes it seem like it's been much longer than it actually has been. It's been good for me, though. This journey is allowing me to become the person I really have always been inside and only partially shown. Some people have stayed in my life and accepted me for exactly who I am and love me no matter what.... Some have distanced themselves, for what reason I'm…

Combatting The Frustration Setting In

Posted on October 2, 2011 at 3:30pm 0 Comments

Two months into this hair journey and I'm still going strong. The frustration I speak of does have to do with my hair, since I am in that stage right now, but it has to do with other things, as well.

Just as I settled into the "Kramer" stage, along comes another...  I am stumped as to what I should call it, actually... I guess the name will come to me after the next stage hits lol I didn't take a picture for the last month. I just wasn't up to it, really. My head has been killing me…

Cotton Ball, anyone?

Posted on August 24, 2011 at 12:56pm 7 Comments

My hair has been pretty "Sonic The Hedgehog" like thus far in my journey. I get up, take pictures and see more of my hair fell out of the backcombing, everything getting messier and messier, and the new little dread babies that are forming where the backcombing has disappeared, and that is completely cool, it's doing it's thing. If I have to go out anywhere, I throw on my hair cover and go, which isn't very often since I work from home.

This morning, when I woke up and took my…

Hi Tia! My husband is doing good and already has a few dread beginnings. They look like loops and feathers mixed together. He is doing all natural so far, but I plan on putting in a few loose twist and rips now that his has completely sectioned. I am going to get some pic's up of him this weekend. Sorry about your dread issue with the scalp. My husband has always had problems with his scalp and he thought not brushing it or not being able to use anti-dandruff shampoo would do him in. He has been lucky so far and its been over a month. We use Dr. Bronners tea tree diluted and every now and then the peppermint one. That is all, nothing else. For itchies and much needed scalp stimulation I use this wire octopus thing that I bought at walgreens for $4. Here is the link to one on amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Scalp-Massager-Colors-May-Vary/dp/B001IHXFQK
It is the best thing in the world for dreads. You can have that itch relief without damaging your dreads as long as you don't go too crazy with the thing ; ) I look forward to your picture updates! I'm glad to be back. I will talk to you soon. : )

At 12:45pm on October 23, 2011, Kathleen said…

Hi Tia! I finally got on last night and updated my pic's and even posted a video. : ) I have been busy with a bunch of stuff. I have had so many changes in my dreads over the past month it's crazy. How are you doing? How are your dreads coming along? Is it freezing up there yet? It is definitely fall here. Well I will talk to you again soon. : )

 

At 1:53am on August 27, 2011, Kathleen said…

Thank you Tia : ) We have all our food, water, etc. and are going to be staying inside. We live on the 2nd floor of a building that was built in 1902, so I always think if it withstood all those years of storms we should be o.k. Thank you for thinking of me! : )
