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...

I made a video of my dreads.  Tomorrow is one month.

Yeah yeah...I sound nasaly because I'm sick and I'm all pudgy because, well, because I'm fat. lmao  Please be kind.  It's the first video I've ever made.

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…

I Have a New Snuggle Buddy!

Today I picked up my new baby, a Baldwin Guinea Pig.  Baldwins are hairy when they're born, but then all their hair falls out and they stay bald.  They're one of those "ugly cute" pets.

My daughter and I named her Harriet.  I was leaning towards Alopecia, or Sinead but my daughter thought Harriet was perfect...kind of like Tiny for a big dude.

So here she is.  She's super scared right now because she's only been with her large piggy family but she really doesn't like other…

2 Weeks and 1 Day (pic heavy!)

Two weeks neglect!  Everything has at least a tangle in it-and every piece of hair has found it's own section to nuzzle into.  The bottom half of my hair is all one giant mass every morning.  I have to separate at least once a day or it gets to the point I have to rip too much.

Ordered my Dreadlocks Shampoo and it should be delivered Tuesday.  I can't wait to see what it does for my hair! 

I only wear my hair up in a bun on weekends when my mom is around.  I haven't broken the…

Beginning dreads, life changes

So it's been a long time since I've been on this website. The main reason for this is I cut my first set of dreads out. I have accepted that this is okay because my life has changed so drastically within the past 2 years. I feel as if when I first had dreads, I hit a really low point in my life. I hadn't found who I really was yet, and I was caught up in the wrong crowd. I feel like I wasn't really…

2 Weeks - Natural set

Well, it's around 2 weeks in to my new journey and I feel pretty in love with my first dread that formed lol. My hair has done good at separating so far. I had 2 babies form at the back of my neck and had to pull apart the larger one into three because it would have been to big. But things are moving along as I expected. I feel that having a set previously has increased my level of patience. I know the stages and how I felt before about myself. This time I feel more relaxed but it is also very… Continue
