I got my dreads on June 1st. I bought rubber bands and went over to my friends house. I couldnt wait to start. I decided to use rubber bands because I was having like 5 of us doing dreads and it was just easier to section it all off. I tried to get "No damage/hurt" rubber bands but it hurt trying to take them out later so that was kinda fail. We used the twist and rip method. My friends got frustrated because they…Continue
Since I was a teenager I was always doing things that my parents and family disapproved of. I wore all black with chains and straps. I dyed my hair all sorts of funky colours. I gauged my ears out, and pierced anywhere I wanted to. Mohawks were not an uncommon hair style for me either, and I never once gave a second thought to how or why my whole family didn't like it.
I did. So that's all that mattered.
Maybe that is why I never cared about people's reactions…Continue

Today is finally the day i start my natural dreads!! i am so excited, the only problem is i have to keep reminding myself that i can't brush my hair with my fingers, but other than that, i just have to be patient and let my hair be. i can wait to see how my hair turns out, especially in a month, i hope it all goes well:)
this is my first day on this site, and i plan on using it alot. i guess ill tell you little dreadlings about my dread experience so far! i started my locks about four months ago in February. I wanted to dread my hair for a while because i have naturally straight hair and i was getting bored with it, and i also wanted to make beads and put them in them. but i got suspended from school so i had some time on my hands, it was the perfect…Continue
i combed my dreads out yet again. I am very sad but at the same time im not sure it was the right time to have them. It is very hard to try to make the transition and change when surrounded by people who dont understand. Ive made a post about this before, about my boyfriend not liking my dreads. he want non supportive or anything, he just didnt care. He didnt get excited about the loops and all the changes in my hair like i did and i didnt really have anyone to share those exciting moments…Continue
Despite some coaxing along we are still going snails pace in progress. But it's fine. While I'd love a loop or knot there is a peace in just letting go & not caring about it. I'm happy just letting my hair fall free & whatever. I've had a couple issues when my 8 month old got her grabby fingers caught in my layers, she pulled out some hair but it seems my sections are all still intact, heck maybe she messed it up more & helped me along (i can hope!) After taking the pictures for…Continue
I don't have too much to say, only that it is my 9 month dreadversary and I couldn't be happier :D
June 1 came a lot quicker than I had intended and now I have nothing to say.. : S
I will say that last week was a very trying week for me because I had been very sick(since about Friday throwing up and the like) and on that following Monday, mom took me to the ER and it turned out that I was dehydrated. I had laid in the bed for around 3 days and he friction of my pillows really…Continue
Please bare with me as blogging is not my greatest talent. Opening up and expressing myself has always been something I'm not great at either. This week has been a tough one for me, so this will most likely be a venting blog. A apologize ahead of time for this blog having no point, and also for it's randomness. I have honestly debated for a long time about whether to post this or not. I ultimately decided to because I thought maybe there would be at least person that can relate.
After a month I just cut my hair at the spur of the moment.
Didn't have too much of a reason to cut them besides my job and people looking at me like I'm strange, I guess I just don't live in a place where I can have(developing) dreads...next to all this, I'm a shitty care taker anyway so...I don't feel I've lost anything, anyway, they'll grow back and Ill try again.
In the mean time I need a girlfriend -____-
So.. I've wanted dreads for 2 and a half years. I finally decided to do it after I graduated highschool. The only websites I had found were dreadheadhq and knottyboys, or websites only suggesting the "neglect" method. Which was not for me. So I bought a kit from dreadheadhq and I recieved it today.
First of all I would like to state…Continue
i was wondering if anyone knew what type of shorts these were or where i could buy a pair. thanks :D
Hey! I'm kinda new to this whole dread thing. I've been interested in dreads for a long time but a few days ago I had a really strong urge to get dreads. So I googled and youtubed about people who had dreads and about how they got their dreads…
Some people had extension, which I think defeats the whole purpose. I really dislike extension but that's just my opinion. Other's used backcombing and a crochet hook (which is the first thing I tried cos I thought it'd be…Continue

I'm new to the site. I've only had my dreads for about 3 weeks. I was told today that retwisting isn't the greatest thing to do so i'm going to let it happen naturally. So my question is do i need to sleep with something over my dreads even if i'm forming them naturally?
I removed rubber bands today and feel more liberated. My dreadies are going to be two months in a few days think I am going to celebrate and take them out for a day at the beach :).. My hair is a total mess but, its part of being a dread head. I love em more and more as the days progress (ok that is not the whole truth) some days, I want to just take em out because they are so unmanagable but, I let…Continue
So it's day 10 of no brushing and no washing, Complete neglect of my hair and I've gotten no where.
My hair is just so straight, So flat and so thin it's just not knotting.
I'd normally be pretty happy about this because I hated brushing out knots lol
Any insight on how to get my hair knotty? Do's and don'ts?
Sure it's got a few knots, But they're just straggly loose knots that don't look like they will be doing much.
It looks good in a hair wrap but not what I want…
Okay, so I just finished my dreads yesterday I started them on the 20th...ummmm I think they look pretty good for being so young! lol. However, I used the twist & rip method and my roots are really loose, I'm not worried about them (they should tighten up, right?) but how bad do they need to be before you start worrying about it? If anyone can help it'd be much appreciated. I REALLY love not having to brush my hair anymore, I've hated it ever since I was a kid, but I've always loved…Continue
People I know call me 'extreme' and classify me an extremist for going full vegan instead of vegeterian, ovo-, pesci-, whatever. If you understand and internalize the rationale behind going vegeterian, why half-step and still munch on fish, eggs, milk, etc?? That doesn't make sense to me. Maybe all or nothing at all is extreme, but that means slave-owners would have been rational in keeping slaves "only for dangerous jobs", etc....other than the…Continue
