Day 4!

No signs of slowing down!

Day 3 Neglect...Holy Crap!

Washed again last night.  Let it air dry and went to bed with it just a bit damp.  Woke up this morning and already had to separate the back of my head to prevent a beaver tail!  What is going on here?! 

Thinking about three days without conditioning or brushing.  If it's THAT easy for my hair to dread, why wouldn't I let it?  It obviously wants to! 

I can't quite hide the plan anymore.  My hair has outted itself a big earlier than I planned.  I love it SO…

A Year of Changes

One year.  I figure it will be about one year into dreading that I'll really start seeing maturing dreadlocks.  This is something I need to keep reminding myself of when I become impatient.

One year.  What else can happen over the span of a year?  So much!

Along with my One Year Dreadlock Journey, I've decided that it's reasonable to challenge myself to make other positive changes to my life, like weight loss.

So here it is.  One year of not worrying about my hair.  One…

And It Begins!

A few years ago I decided that I desperately wanted dreadlocks.  I've always gotten bored with my hair quickly.  From my natural brown I would dye red, platinum, black, purple, fire engine red...every color you could imagine until it just wasn't enough and I'd eventually shave it all off.

First I tried crocheting it and adding my own extensions.  I worked my ass off making those extensions.  Crochet hooks getting stuck in my finger, my thigh!  Those suckers are hard to remove,…

starting over

Well, it's been a while since I was on here. I ended up combing out my dreads a year and a half ago after 17.5 months of having them. I had trouble with the ends not locking up (5 to 8 inches smooth silky hair at ends). In the end I'm glad I did. I now have strong healthy long hair that's down to my lower back. But I miss the feeling of my babies. I'm toying with the idea of letting my hair dread again, but I don't think I want it all to dread this time. Not sure if I can let my hair naturally… Continue

My Dreadlock Journey

So, I first began my dreadlock journey while I was in college in a small rural/super-conservative town in southern Arkansas.  You can imagine the stares and whispers that became my immediate environment.  I started my journey by not brushing or washing. …

i have attempted to dread my hair a couple times now. i didnt feel comfortable with the length of my hair at the time.. i feel like its at a decent size now, its down to my shoulders and i started the neglect method on tuesday(so 3 days since ive conditioned or combed) im pretty confident that ill make it through this time and actually go through with letting my hair dread (:

Hello.

Hey guys! I've been here many times before over a span if 5/6 years. Ive attempted to dread my hair three times now. But I have finally reached a time in my life that is spiritually awesome and I have found the patience, love a appreciation. I am 1 month into neglect, and the changes are awesome. I will be posting progress pics.

Happy Loops? or bad roots?

I know roots are supposed to be loose, and dreads are supposed to get loopy and 'messy'. Especially in the first 6 months. 
My question is this... are the loops on my roots (right next to my scalp) a good thing? thanks!

Baking soda is AMAZING!!

I am still figuring out how to post here so I can start my timeline pics. But for now I just want to say how much I love the bs wash!! I have the Nag Champa shampoo and that is so awesome I was not even going to try the bs, but I am happy I did! So clean!! I am still going to use my shampoo but will be doing the baking soda for a treat :)

I've been a slacker!

I was doing really well tracking my progress, then life came up! :P 

Things have been going wonderful here, but very busy! Trying to spend a lot of time outdoors and enjoy the weather before it changes! :D

Today marks the 52nd day of not brushing for me! :D

Lots of little knotty things happening underneath my hair! I don't really do anything to my hair, no palm rolling, I don't even section my hair. 

I do brush my bangs, but only because I have to be able to get my hair out…

What do dreads look like that have string or wool thread or yarn stuck in them? Does anyone have any advise or pictures they can share? Thanks!

dread gel!

heyy! so i was in town today and a dude with dreadlocks started talking to me about my dreads :) he said that i should buy a dread gel, put it on and twist. that way they will become smooth and less frizzy. (my natural dreads are a year old and are incredibly frizzy and messy) i just wanted to know if its good for the dreads or if i should avoid it. 

thank you :)

Question about separating

Here is a photo of my hair at 2.5 months of neglect.  The underside (mainly loose hairs, not such defined curls) are beginning to knot, but the top still hasn't (I understand I am early on in the journey).  I have been separating the natural curls, for example: 2 will start curling together (this happens with many) & then I carefully separate them to an individual curl.  Do you think this is hindering progress?  Should I let them curl together?  My concern has always been that they will…
