What a mess!

Woke up to this today...pretty sure I'll have to do some major separations tonight!  I'm excited though because I get to do it after using my Dreadlocks Shampoo that arrives today.  2 weeks, 4 days of neglect!…

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

Here I am, everyone is tight for money.

I traveled out of my body last night, It's strange when you get the realization that you are not just a mindless drone, You are a being of light, your soul stretches so much further then you will ever know.

My mind and soul reached out to the edges of consciousness last night for the second time ever.

I showed my sacred circle some love in the park, and listened to good music.

 I have cut back all of my medications because now…

Other than a hat...

Other than as a hat, what have you used your tam for?

Last night my dog pulled a day old baby bunny from it's nest and we couldn't get it back in.  I wrapped it up in my wool tam with a fleece glove and a hand warmer.  It spent the night snuggled into my boobage while I fed it every 3 hours or so.

This morning I managed to locate the nest again and clear it enough to put her back in-luckily there were other baby buns in there for it to snuggle with!  I've lived in this area for…

Day 6!

Washed again last night.  It felt like my hair was really soft afterwards but this morning I woke up to more knots!  I had to separate my entire head this morning because everything was matting into one big hunk. 

My arms are so tired from separating but it makes me feel good to know there's been so much progress.  I feel like I'm less "piece-y" today and more knotty, if that makes sense. 

Here's some pictures just after separation.…

Dread love

Today is a great day, I have been letting my hair dread naturally for the most part since Jan 1 2014. It is interesting the different stages one goes through while dreading. I don't know if everyone has similar thoughts but somethings that have crossed my mind during my dreading process make me laugh. In the beginning I was like Holy flying squirrels these curls are insane, my hair is naturally very curly at the ends. When I began dreading the curls would turn up and dread into the root of…

Challenge, and I love it

This last year has been a challenge, and I love it. I started my journey on December 6th, 2013. I worked for a company that I had to wear a cap. I would put my hair in a pony tail and wrap it into a bun and put it under my cap. I was absolutely ignorant about how to dread. I looked on the internet on how to dread. one person said go to the store and purchase Neutrogena shampoo anti-residue formula. That was a stupid mistake. It is so bad for the environment. My hair did absolutely nothing.…

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
