I'm currently around like month 3 in letting my hair grow out. So since I don't comb it anymore, I'm not quite sure how long it actually is now. Encouraging enough, I'm starting to feel 2 or 3 long twisties separating from the rest of the fro. The thing is, when I sleep I turn a lot. So the back of my head and the sides are all mushed down, while the top is sticking out because I guess I never lay on the top.. That'd be pretty weird. Anyways it's not like I go to school or work right now,…Continue
I have always wanted dreads. Mostly out of vanity, because I love the look of them, but also for other reasons I couldn't quite put my finger on. So, 8 or so days ago, I went to a salon to get a consultation for a stylist to put in dreads for me. I was quoted a price of $125 an hour. I made an appointment (I can't believe that at that time I was willing to pay that much money) I am ashamed to admit that, but I now realize was a part of this journey that was supposed to happen.…
All I can say is wow. My hair is absolutely loving itself these days. progress has really picked up and every day I see considerable shrinkage, progressing loops where the hair seems to eat itself up into a perfect tangle. I'm having a bit of a problem with my industrial piercing. I might have to take the little guy out. : ( My loose hair keeps getting hung up on it and the continuous tugging at it has made my ear a little sore to the touch. Nothing bad at all and very tolerable. However, if…Continue
This loose hair is killing me! WHat can i do about it:C
Tomorrow it will officially be 3 months with my (soon to be) dreads! I am just a bit concerned that they are not growing properly. They have gotten more loose and I do not know if that is normal. A few people offered to tighten them up, but I am not sure if that is a good idea. I just want my potential dreads to be healthy. If anyone has any insight or advice, it will be much appreciated! Thank you!

Hello Dreadfriends !
I send you a photo of my first 2 weeks natural dreads, letting wind and sun and sleep sculpt my coming dreads.. what a voyage !!Continue
I'm only three weeks unbrushed at this point, but I am finding that every day there are these beautiful changes to watch. I am really enjoying that part. I'm also really amazed to see how quickly little baby locs are being born.
I have relatively fine wavy hair, but I have A LOT of it. It's always been a little on the "dry" side. I feel like maybe this is helping it to start knotting up so quick? My theory... could be complete rubbish for all I know. You can see in the photo below…Continue
So its been 3 months since I started dreading and it's been a joyful time, some negative comments about not brushinh my hair but its ok.
It feels so fine when I see some baby dreads forming, sea salt mix has been a great help, my parents say I'm a hippie they want to cut my hair.
this little one started with about 5 strings of hair, it's gettin bigger.…Continue
Just feel like writing...
I've started the dread process again. I've been dying for this and I'm glad I had the time to think about why I want dreadlocks to begin with.
I wasn't really upset when I cut off my hair last time - as I was truly just overstimulated - but I regret that I do deal with issues of being easily overwhelmed. It's definitely a result of this crazy lifestyle, go-go-go culture, worrying, and too many things to do that just cause stress. I definitely suck at…Continue
Gosh, a year later I update my blog. Hahaha!! So I waited a whole year to restart my dread journey. Who knows why. It just wasn't time. Well, I've not combed my hair for a little over a month now. It's been so liberating. I have always hated fixing my hair and brushing my hair, so this organic method is fitting me like a glove. My hair is weird. For nearly the first month, it looked like someone would sneak into my room at night and brush my…

There are two questions I keep returning to:
How many times must I make the same mistake before I learn my lesson?
Why be inspired by heroes, if I don't live up to how they would behave?

Hi Everyone! I made a post about my dreadlocks (crochet) last year. And I did brush them out, which I think was the right thing to do. I have now been during the Neglect Method for 3 months and I feel great. This is truly the BEST way to go, no doubt about it. If you are on a spiritual journey to find yourself, throw your brush away, honestly. You will find yourself. It is truly an amazing feeling. I feel alive finally. This is what I've needed, all these years. The…Continue
My loops are getting absurd The entirety of almost every dread its a ball of loops. I know I just need to wait for them to grow out but I'm getting more and more impatient. Every day my mom says she wants to comb them out and redo them so they are straight again. I'm always like noooooooooooo…Continue
A silent killer that’s worse than alcohol, nicotine, and drugs is likely lurking in your kitchen cabinets and even your child’s school cafeteria. It’s monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer that’s known widely as an addition to Chinese food, but that’s actually added to thousands of the foods you eat.
MSG is used in countless foods in your supermarket, local restaurants, school cafeterias, and more. Everything from soup to crackers to meats may contain it because MSG, as…Continue
