About Me
Im a 28yr old Irish girl who had a prejudice against white people with dreads so i got dreads. unfortunatly i arrived at this site a few days after getting my hair torn apart by a very cool friend with a crochet hook.

omg you are so adorable !! everyone has to go thru all the weird phases of the dread process. I know that crocheting in the beginning has really worried you. but relax what was done was done can't change it. no need to worry over the past ....look forward to the future. your dreads really look good. the texture will change over time. Just let em do their thing :) and enjoy them.

You have nice dreads.. It is doing really well! mine entering the first week tomorrow. Hope it will be as good as yours in 3 months time.

Same situation here. Found this forum only few days after done crochet'ing :( but I suppose this is right for me (look around to see if SE is watching..) because I need the neatness for my working environment. I'm leaving it to heal itself now.

Nice meeting you Karen ;)
