I don't like weed

It kinda bothers me that dreadlocks must be mixed up with weed all the time. I am a guy who does not like to be under the influence of neither alcohol or drugs. I enjoy being high on life though, love is my favorite drug. Love is the greatest high of all.

I don't want to promote the use of weed with my hairstyle. I would like to wash all weed of all the dreadlocks in the world. I would rather like dreadlocks to be connected with love. Can't we organize that?

1st Week

Sunday marked one week! I have not used a comb, brush, or commerical shampoo/conditioner or any products during this week. I wash&condition with SE's BS&ACV recipe. Changes I have noticed:

Comb-made parts are no longer visible to my eye. But when I touch my hair, I feel the sections.

My entire head is covered in fuzz, and the twists are visible enough to pass as an intentional sloopy style. Interesting to note, this "style" was a hit at my local bar.

My roots… Continue

Gardening on a rainy Sunday

I live out in the country. Quite close to a bigger city, but this is still in the worst farmland. The neighbors have cows, horses and sheep. And here I have my red little house and my great garden. Gardening and dreads gel well together, in my world. Even though I don't grow weed. Right now I'm making squash pickles, cuz I have so much squash and I don't know what to do with it.

Any suggestions what else I can do with all my squash? Or do all you guys only wanna talk about how bad… Continue

Dread Functionality

My colleges have gotten used to my new hairstyle. Maybe it is because it's not so new anymore. One is getting used to most things if one is exposed to them long enough. But the funny thing is that many of my colleges now even have the guts to express that they like my dreads. That they did not believe it was a good idea initially, but that they now must admit that it looks good and really suits me. To me that is big of my colleges.

You must know that I am working in a office… Continue

charity cycle through europe

Friday the 27th at about 1300hrs I arrived back at home, here in France. 2653 miles in just under 29 days.

A month of cycling both physically and mentally exhausting made worse with a broken hand and wrist as the result of an unfortunate fall on the fourth day of the trip. Special thanks to Lt Col Haynes for letting me recover at his house.

The weather was superb throughout France and Italy, constantly over 30 degrees and hardly any clouds. I raced through Monaco and across to… Continue

Blond dreads doing Italy

I'm crazy about blogging, so I will probably be busy here both now and then. My English is not perfect, but I will try my best.

I signed up today. As soon as I poked my nose in here I heard that I was doing wrong in using my crochet needle. That little needle that I was so happy about was causing damage to my hair? Damn it! I was so happy when I finally found that needle a month ago. And I was also very happy that it didn't cost more than a couple of dollars. And I desperately needed… Continue

Week Four AND Five Vegetarian.

okay, last Friday I was very distracted by someone, so I had completely forgotten about this...Anywho, I've made it five weeks without being made to eat meat, or eating it on my own. Yay for me, right??? I'm all excited and stuff. My family is cooking meat as I am writing this, and I feel so sick to my tummach that it is not even funny, I used to be hungry, not i don't feel too well, but ima open the window that I am sitting by..anywho, ah, that's…

First Month Thoughts

If you read this, be forewarned, it's random and all over the place.

It has been about three weeks since I backcombed all of my hair. I layered small on top and larger on the bottom. I used lockpeppa and a dread comb, and nothing else. I could have gone without the lockpeppa, but it did seem to make my hair more "grippy."

Anyways, this is my second set of dreadlocks and I feel better prepared for them this time around. I am at a better place in my life and more accepting… Continue

The History of My Hair

I was born bald...the make you wanna lick the palm of your hand and slap the back of a head bald. Not a wisp of hair. My mom always dressed me in pink and ruffles so I wouldn't be mistaken for a it still didn't stop the same old question, is it a boy or a girl?! I didn't start to grow hair until I was one. But once it started, it did not stop. My hair grew to be very thick, lush, and long.

My hair for some reason always tempted boys to pull and tug on my ponytails. I had a… Continue

My Dream

I dream of living in a community where bras are burned, razors are thrown out, and clothing is optional (or even prohibited). I dream of a community not governed by money, but sustained by trade, that focuses not on consuming, but on growing, self-discovery, and love. Where the joy of helping others replaces the greed of more, more, more. I dream of this community growing its own food, building its own shelters, raising its own young. Where a relationship with the trees is not only recognized,… Continue

My Dreadlock Failure Story!

I have for a very long time liked the looks of dreads and wanted to get dreads myself. But 8-9 years ago when I had grown my hair long for the first time, I wanted to get dreads but I thought you had to go to a salon to get them made, but the ridiculous prices kept me away. Then I got rid of my long hair 'cause it was just a big mess and kept annoying me.

I kept my hair very short for some years untill the fall of 2007. I didn't really plan on growing back my long hair, but suddenly 6… Continue

Excited 'bout the nappies!

I am on week three of my natural dread journey. Yesterday a beauty popped up right on top of my head, I am stoked! I have all these little baby dreads in the back of my head, so the one on top really surprised me. It's been so freeing to just let my hair do its thing and not worry with things looking out of place.

Week 3: Learning stuff already!

August 21st marked my 3rd week of locking up! It has been an interesting process. As I sat back yesterday evening to reflect my newest transition in life, I am in awe with what dreadlock has come to symbolize for me at this point.

Lessons I have learned so far:


In the world we live in these days, one gets too used to having things done right away. Technology brings us communication within a blink of an eye, dinner can be ready in as little as 3… Continue

don't hate me because I'm beautiful!

So yesterday I tried to get an appointment with my primary, who was unable to see me until wednesday, so I took myself to the ER. Don't you just love good old fashioned discrimination? I personally love it...NOT!

I went alone thinking my sinus infection would not put me on as a top priority and the kids would be more work for me than anything else. So I put the oldest in charge (he's 14) and took my tam that I am knitting and drove across town to the hosp.

I tell the admitting… Continue

My journey of Hair

I have a problem with my hair. I have had problems for years with it. I have always wanted perfect straight soft hair. I was blessed with frizzy, wavy in spots full head of hair. While most people say that they love a full head of hair, I coveted those with flat hair that wouldn't curl. Those that could step out the shower and have their hair dry straight without the use of products or machines.

I started dying my hair when I was 11 and my first experience with straightening my hair… Continue

Yeay! Gifts in the mail!

So I come home and lo and behold my essential oils have arrived! Yeay! I love getting stuff in the mail! Practically all my shopping is done online these days. Who has time to browse stores anymore? Sooooo I got Tea tree oil - smells pretty strong - Lavender, Rosemary and Peppermint oils. Nice. I'm looking forward to trying them. I also - ok, this is actually pretty funny, but I also looked everywhere for sea salt here in my town and couldn't find any so once again, I looked online. I found… Continue

Anti/Pro Wax

Ok, so i've made my mind up about wax. It felt so bad just on my fingers so I decided not to wax my new babies!

I have a bit of a problem with the whole debate though... The fact is, when I decided i wanted to dread it was my decision. Other than people on this site, I only know one or two people with dreads, and I don't know them well enough to call them up for advice. They're more casual aquaintances.

Because of this, the only place I could turn to do any research on the… Continue
