Dark Clouds Drift Away To Reveal The Sunshine

Ok so today's been a bad day.

My dreads are fine, and tightning nicely. But thats not why it's a bad day.

For the past 4 years, i've been single. To start with I was fine with that. I had no one to answer to and I could do my own thing. Recently though, things aren't that good.

About a year ago I decided that I needed a companion/lover/girlfriend. This sounds easier than it actually is.

I've tried speed dating, internet dating, singles nights, going… Continue

Sept. 27 - AAAAAAaaarrgh! The Itchies!

I am about halfway done with my head - it's going slow because my arms, wrists and fingers get pretty sore, but overall, I'm loving how it's turning out. But...

AAAAAAaaarrrrrrrgh!!!! I've got the itchies! Last week, I washed my hair for the first time with the baking soda recipe found on this forum site and it worked wonderfully. I washed my hair a second time with it this past Saturday - just 2 days ago - and I've got the itchies and some dandruff already!!! I have not tried the AC… Continue

House Concert

I experienced something very cool last night. I was invited to a house concert with Francis Dunnery without having any idea of what a house concert is. But God, it was soo cool. We were like 40 ppl gathering up in someone's house, paying by the door to see this guy, Francis Dunnery, that I never ever heard of before. He apparently used to be a front figure in some progressive rock band in the… Continue

Dirty my look

I could never wear snobbish clothes before I had dreads. If I did, I always looked like one of the guys in "Days of our lives", combed, foolish and soppy. With snobbish clothes I mean a shirt and a jacket maybe. But now, with my dreads I can wear anything and still look, what I call "normal". Still look me, if you know what I mean? Identity again. One wants to look the way one feels like inside. And I definitely don't feel like one of the "Days of our lives"-guys inside. It's as far as one can… Continue

Elf Locks

I have been wanting elf locks for years: and have been voraciously combing the internet for any and all information I could find on the subject. Very nearly purchased products from the folks at KnottyBoy and DreadHeadHQ a time or two, but something about the use of product like WAX seemed unnatural even then.

I also even toyed a few times with interlocking some strands of my hair -…

standing strong

i came to far -for you to bring me down

i made up my mind - theyll hear me now

you cant bribe me into silence

you cant scare me with your violence

im to strong to be sedated

im to screwed up to become jaded

i heard you apologies they make no sence

your stupid lies are just ignorance

you may convince them but they still know

in their mind the truth will grow

theyll figure out who u truly are

a flower will grow from this scar

Sept. 21 - let the dreading begin!

It's been a while since I've posted, I've been pretty busy. But I am attempting to simplify my life a bit hhere and perhaps get back to some of the things I have been meaning to take care of. Like my hair! So finally I am in the pre-dreading process. I have spent the evening sectioning out my hair - sans help and sans mirror - so I expect the dreads to be delighfully non-uniform. My arms and shoulders and fingers are already kind of sore and pretty tired, but I did manage to rip and twist and… Continue

det är mycket mer

det är djup poesi för hjärtat men inte för själen , låt orden läka dina sår , lägga sig över bröstet som ett våtvarmt omslag.

när du blöder blottar du ditt inersta , om du blöder för nån annan är du värdig.

om du blöder för dig själv är du självisk , men ska man inte älska sig själv.

idag såg jag en tjej på centralen , hon grät och människorna runt om henne ignorerade henne , det gjorde även jag , hur kan vi säga att vi bryr oss om… Continue

I think this website is awesome, it's helping me out a whole lot, although I'm still unsure whether or not to get dreads. I really really really want them, I'm just unsure how to get them, in which way is best and how to maintain them. :| It's frustrating. Anyways, I might go to sleep pretty soon! GoodNight!

2. ...not to use wax or a crochet.

3. ...that somebody with dreadlocks can be just about anybody.

4. ...that dreadlocks can represent thousands of things.

5. know quite a few lovely people.

6. love my dreadlocks even more than I did before I joined this forum.

Thank U guys! =)

lice almost gone

well the pesky pests have almost been defeated! I have never been to war before, so this is all new to me, but I am coming out victorious without losing my baby dreads, that I have become very attached to.

ont gör ont

det gör ont i mig när det matriella spelar roll i mitt liv , jag vill inte ha det , men mitt undermedvetna skriker efter värdsliga ting , ska jag behöva öleva ett liv till i min ofullständighet , ska jag lida ett liv till , för jag vill släcka begäret och återvända till evigheten.

för det som varar förevigt finns inte nirvana , endast vi som ser och hör kan avgöra vad som är.

nu svammlar jag för min hjärna är inte med den tänker på det som… Continue

ordinary days

när nått du sett fram emot blir flyttat hoppar hjärtat ur led , när nått du älskar försvinner brinner själens eld.

men idag är ingen vanlig dag för idag är jag i tid , i tid till allt jag kan stöta på , tråkigheter ,folk problem stora som små.

jag siktar på att ta det långsamt , inte stressa något mer , jag vill få bort alla lögner allt hat och allt svek . men min hjärna vill ej lyda den lever på en lögn, den säger såhär är det och sanningen är glömd.

men jag är min egen sanning… Continue

6 Weeks

Ok so my last post was about 2 weeks ago, and since then my head has become this whole crazy jungle of loose hairs and knots trying their damndest to become dreads.

One of my roots has split in two, so I have two roots coming together into one tip. The gap is so big that i can fit my thumb through it. I've repositioned beads to help it along so it should all work out!

On the whole though they're going good, and for the first time in my life I'm happy with who I am. Now… Continue

They are 3wks old today :D They are tightening up and wearing a few beads. I must admit I was expecting a lot of rude comments from humans in general, but all I have experienced is wonderful compliments. My head is covered in strays and loose hair. Personally, I think it looks gooood but I know it is not the standard of beauty according to society. Perhaps we dreadies who want to be dreaded just wear it well ;) I am expecting a few packages this week, gifts for the dreads. One tam and shampoo… Continue

I think we would lie to ourselves if we did not admit that dreadlocks are heavily connected to identity. I think we all have been going through a process in which we have decided that dreadlocks blend in well with our identity, that dreadlocks fits into our own concept of whom we think we are.

If I just briefly scan our community I can see that there are some herb smokers, quite a few mommies calling themselves hippies and a whole lot of ppl that feel they have a strong connection… Continue
