A Big Thank You

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…

11 days with out a brush.

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…

Its been about a year now...

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…

Dreadlocks nightmare!

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…

my friend: jobs and dreads

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…

Ever get into a conversation where neither of you knew what the other was talking about?

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…

i'll come back in a year and prove you wrong

since dreadlocksite started 3 years ago about a dozen people said they were going to use wax the dread kit and/or crochet for a year and come back and prove us wrong (mostly its been young kids around 15-16) they stubbornly refuse to listen to logic and reason, let alone benefit from the experiences of thousands who had used those things before and regretted it.

so i just want to remind yas

we still want you to come back and show us the results

its been awhile

My life kind of got away from me.

I'm living back in civilization and my life is whirlwind again. Hard to believe 2 years ago I started this process. 

My dreads are still alive and well (And still whispy on the ends after 2 years. I've grown to love it).

I'll take pics in a min. I missed you guys.

The Loss of a Beloved Friend

I have been somewhat laying low this week and am slowly gaining functionality again.

On Tuesday morning, June 12, I had to take my cat Barron to the vet.  He was acting sluggishly and had something wrong with his eye (gunky and half-closed) so I thought it may have been an eye infection.  It turns out that there was something else going on...…

Curls, dreads and breathing

Today is the day! I've started to separate and tnr'ing my hair and it's uber liberating. With the help and shares from lovely people on this site, I decided to not use wax and to let my hair do it's thang... that's what it does without my direction anyway! So here's a not-so-great pic of a few dreads I've started so far, I'll have a few more up a bit later.



Jai and love you all!…

BANGS!

I personally dont have "bangs" but I have seen them on other people with dreads and I was thinking about leaving the front of my hair brushed... cause it looks cool. But wouldnt know it I have a gnarly loopy crazy knot going on in the front dead center. I guess my hair didnt like my idea ;)

Beads and wraps?

I really want to put a few things in my hair so when I get the urge to run my fingers through it I will stop because I cant. Is it bad for my hair? Will it dread faster? Will it be more damaging. Keep in mind I havent even made it to a week! I have no real dreads... just tangles.

Also a husband update :)

not only does he tell me I am beautiful 10x more often after I told him I quit brushing, he is getting in to the idea. He told me that in 5 years(when the military has no say in…

Updates and News!

Yesterday was the nine week mark of the birth of my dreadlocks! I still love them just as much today as I did yesterday. I have some crazy zig-zags going on in the back and one loops thus far! I love watching the changes every day. As for my itchy head, It has completely stopped after I quit using the bar and only used the liquid shampoo.

As far as other things in my life, I now know why I have been an emotional mess. I'm pregnant! My husband and I have been trying for quite some…

First Blog

Hello out there, i don't usually have very great intro's but I've had an odd week. Sort of in a little funk but, I'm sure there will be a better outcome anyways. I've just had some criticism lately but i was bracing myself for it anyways. I just think it's so weird how judgmental and strait forward people can be, because I'm not like that at all. i never really put myself around people like that. But the past week Ive been surrounded with people like that and it's just sort of frustrating…

My first "blog"

I am writing this entry with half a bowl of resin smoked (hey payday is tomorrow, we've been broke for 2 weeks!) and I'm thinking I will use it for all things vane.

You see,  I am in love with nail polish and own too many bottles to be comfortable admitting. My issue is that I am afraid to post my stuff on a known blog because I'm not very good at painting my nails not at taking pictures, yet I feel I need validation for owning a undisclosed amount of polish. I figure to do this, I…

So out of the blue I said to my husband "how do feel about dreadlocks" he said "THEY'RE GAY" and I said "really cause Im never brushing my hair again" and he said "DOIT! DOIT! DOIT!"

I see people in the world and think they should totally have dreads! That how I know I am ready. This will be epic I hope it cures me from being vain and and…
