How my dreads have changed me

This might come across as really strange to some people but i wanted to just put something out there about how my dreads have started to change me as a person. Before when i had my 'normal' straight, long hair i was really unconfident, never happy with the way i looked because of my hair having to be do perfect. I wouldn't leave the house on days that it wouldn't sit right etc etc. I wore clothes that i wasn't even particularly happy wearing just  because thats the way i thought i had to be…

Just joined Dreadlockssite

So happy to have found this website. I really wish I would have joined before I started my dreadlocks. There are so many things I would have done differently, though I love my locs.

If I could go back and change some things, I would have used the twist and rip method instead of the backcombing method. I would have put maybe about ten more dreadlocks into my hair. Right now I have 25 dreads, two of them being super tiny and braided together. One of my concerns has always been not…

Holy Frizz!!

Immediately after I started neglecting my hair, it separated itself into sections where I could see exactly where each dread would be.  Then last week *poof* no more sectioning.  Instead I had this soft pretty hair, except the underside which was still matting like crazy.  I was curious what had changed to make it soft and pretty (other than conditioning because this was before I did that).  Not worried about it, but just thought it was interesting and that maybe it would take longer than I…

6 weeks

Holy crap! Let me say I was not expecting as much progress as I have right now. Only 6 weeks in and I've had more and more tangles start up in just the last week than I can count. I started with two tnr and the rest natural. I now have tons of knotting up throughout the entire length of the hair sections, which is different than my old tnr set which were knotted in the middle only. I've been continuing to wash with baking soda only and did two rinses of acv. No problems thus far with just using… Continue

not real dreads!

Seems that this time round going neglect that most people are skeptical that it will work and aren't near as supportive or encouraging to me. It doesn't bother me as I'm not doing this for anyone else, but something I noticed. Just last night, my cousin who supported me through my last twist and rip dreads, basically told me my dreads weren't real last time if I was able to comb them out. That I have to be serious about the knots and really damage my hair inow order to get dreads. Now, he had… Continue

Conditioning and smellin good!

I sprayed some of the Dreadlock Shampoo salt spray on my hair tonight and immediately it felt crispy and dry, worse than it has throughout this process so far.

I broke down.  I probably should have used ACV to condition it, but after gazing longingly at my Nutris Garnier citrusy smelling conditioner I became too weak. 

I slathered it in my hair, inhaling the yumminess squishing through my fingers.  It FELT good and it SMELLED good.

I left it on my hair for about 30…

Don't Laugh...

Being sick SUCKS!

Sneezing, snotty, coughing, headache, body aches.  Yech.  My daughter is home sick after only three days into the school year.  Neither of us is happy about it but I don't want to be infecting everyone else.

Dreadlocks though...yes...a few days ago I was feeling all down about it.  I've actually been wondering if synthetics braided in would be a better idea, but I know I wouldn't feel the pride of knowing they were mine and had my history inside them.  Plus, what a pain in the butt-to…

Not Feeling it Today

Anyone have a little dready motivation they can pass my way?

It may be because I've got the flu and feel super shitty, but for some reason I started stressing about my hair today.  Are my dreads going to be too small?  What if I don't like them that small?  How can I fix it later?  Blah blah blah.

My hair has sectioned itself but sometimes those sections merge and I'm losing where to separate them.  I take the path of least resistance and often end up with pretty small sections…

TnR Timeline for Partial Dreads

A little history...

On August 21st, 2013,  I started my partial dreads using the TnR method mainly because I wasn't doing my entire head. I wanted a clear line of separation so I could use different shampoo and conditioner on my free flowing hair while protecting my dreads and finishing with a residue free shampoo for just the dreads. This also made it easier to keep the rest of my hair from joining the party. :)

I did all of…

Used Dreadlocks Shampoo

I used the Dreadlocks Shampoo for the first time last night.  I'm not sure what to think.  I love strong citrusy or flowery smells and they didn't really offer any in the liquid shampoo, so I figured Dragons Blood would be the closest to something I'd enjoy.  It's definitely not a smell I enjoy.

But I used it anyway and I was shocked at how conditioning the shampoo was!!  I was using a face bar soap from One Hand Washes the Other before and things were really tangly.  After washing…
