Hello my lovely little otherbeasts! Was your weekend a swell one and did you go out and shake the town up? If you didn't, there's always next weekend. Dedicate some time to doing what YOU want to do today and what makes YOU happy. After all, you deserve it.…
so guys its been a whole month already. its been full of frizz, shrinkage, knots, dryness and tangles. and you know what.. i love it. i have to admit the reality of how fast these attributes hit me were a bit overwhelming for the first two weeks.
i was a person that hated shrinkage (which is very natural with my hair type, matter of fact in its loose state it shrinks to about 90% of its length), frizz, and tangles and would redo her hair in a flash so it could look "fresh" again. i…Continue
Wow. What a day! Today has been super busy since I updated earlier this morning. I moved furniture in 90 degree weather allll day long! I'm relatively certain that my hair withstood the heat much better than my body :)

I found an old blog and remembered somtheing that happend to me about a month ago at my work place. Funny story I am in the nursing field and we get random drug tests. My boss approched me and said hey "I am not supposed to tell you this but, I really like you and your work ethic. We are having a random drug test this afternoon so I am going to send you home early so you won't have to take it and get one…Continue

there are 2 main schools of thought when it comes to dread care
1 lets call the consumer option
the other, the zen art of dread care.
the consumer buys into products, pays hundreds of dollars for kits, or spends thousands going to salons for constant maintenance.
the zen artists grows herbs for herbal soaks, smudges his/her dreads to cleanse the energies surrounding them, maybe chants the aum vibration to unite their dreads with the universal consciousness, and …Continue

As of today, June 21st, I have decided to allow my hair to naturally go through the locking process. I have always been interested (borderline obsessed) in dreadlocks- though I never thought I would have the ability to have my own.
Within the past few…Continue
I want to make this as short and sweet as I can so I don't go on and babble on about it lol. Ever since last year when I made the decision to grow out my hair and dread it, I've had constant verbal jabs and strikes in attempts of swaying me away from this journey, and now that I'm nine days in and my TnR sections aren't so poofy, I'm getting an extreme amount of hate and disdain from others, friends and family alike. I seriously can't think of more than maybe five people that fully support…Continue
forehead and neck are accumulating knots. The rest of my head might as well have been brushed yesterday :/ I dont mind. I have 2 "baby dreads" and one piece that has no knots but is on its own and staying sectioned. I think its because I used to french braid all the time and Im excited because if they dread in the form that I braid then I can continue to braid like I always have :D
A little more about…Continue
I stopped brushing my hair about a year ago now. And I am very pleased with the results. My hair has a long way to go, absolutely. I have a lot of loose hairs still, especially underneath my hair. But in time I think it will do it's thing. I am still washing with baking soda/water, and making a new batch every time I decide to wash my hair. (once in a great while I will use a Nag Champa bar soap I found on etsy because I like the smell) My boyfriend, who hated my hair when I started this…Continue

One of my dreads fell completely off of my head and when I looked at it it was hollow but completely filled with slime and soap bubbles. I almost puked and started crying. Then I cut them all off because I suddenly noticed they were all disgusting and smelly.
I have never been so happy to wake up.
I don't know why but this dream was so much worse than when I used to dream about losing my hair or teeth in the past. I've had those nightmares my whole life and never really had too…Continue
My friend Kyle wants dreads. He actually wanted them before i did but he never got them because of work and frankly i think he's to lazy to do them himself. Anyways, so he asked me to dread his hair in the near future with this other chick he knows who had dreads (he has a lot of hair). I'm just concerned and he's concerned as well, because it's already difficult for him to get a job with this long hair that if he get's dread locks it might be harder for him to get a job. And he needs a job…Continue
As dirty a place as the city is, I love it. There are all kinds of different people around you. People from all over the world.
My neighbor across the street, for example, is off the boat from China. He is the oddest character I've ever seen. he paints his concrete steps all different colours multiple times a year. He pees into a bucket outside and uses it to water his plants. (He grows the best vegetable garden I've even see, so he must know what he's doing). He'll paint…Continue
