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…Continue
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.
I started letting my dreads grow a little over a month ago. Here are some photos so far!Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…

for a month and a half i've treated my daughter 4 xs for lice with RID, vinegar, alcohol... lathered with conditioner. comb comb comb comb. treated her again today after finding 1 adult and a couple eggs again today. I' found a knit in my roots up front when i treated her the first time and vinegar/grocery bagged my hair. couple days later did the same thing. after she came back with them again I just soaked my roots all i could with RID too. then 5 days later vinegar/grocery bag again. All…Continue
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…Continue

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!…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
First time round t'n r (about a year ago) but it just didn't feel right so after 3 months or so combed them out just after finding out I was pregnant with my 3rd little lady (laying fast asleep with me in the…Continue

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…Continue
