OOOO I'M FREEEEEEEE! Until August, but it's a much needed brain break either way. I've been going strong since the Summer of 2008--every semester since Summer of 20008.
Last week I had the idea that I would not let my bangs dread up with the rest of my head. My bangs have different ideas. They are almost as long as the rest of my hair, so it's a chore to keep them separate. I'm just going to let them go--they will probably dread up the fastest!

That is exactly how many dreads are on my head. I find it truly hilarious that I once heard Johnny Clean claim that a person should have around 100 dreads on their head. My dreads are all smaller then a pencil (except for a few big ones which are my fav's) and there is no way I could have fit 100. Anyway I thought it was funny...
In other news: I am officially finished dreading! I TnR'd my whole head, not including my bangs which are still too short. I am so happy! In a way though I'm…Continue
Here I am reached the end of my first month! So happy, I'm not gonna lie the first few weeks we're really tough, my insecurities we're trying to eat away at me. I truly didnt realise how much of my identity I found in my image, or should I say the image I constructed. I am on the road to finding my true self again. Away from the fads, fashions and concepts of my culture. This is soooo freeing to me.
I'm begining to not be afraid to show me The Real me to the world.
Hi everyone! I am attempting to dread my hair for the second time. The first time I tried was about 6 years ago and I used wax. They were like little candles so after a month I combed them out and gave up.
I went to a friend of a friend at a salon who backcombed them for me - I am a teacher in a NYC school so I need to have them manicured at all times! I am 7 weeks in and they are starting to smooth out and are tightening every day! I'm really pleased with the…Continue
ok so my hair is like 3 inches long, and i want to do dreads. I'd always heard you should start from bald, but really have NO idea what the best method for dreading is. Is there someone out there that can help me out with some info, or someone in new hampshire that can dread them for me (for a fee of course)...hook me up! I'm a reggae singer and it's time to dread
Well guys, I am about worn out. My girlfriend and I have been getting ready for the epic trekking to begin again and a LOT of work went into it this time. For those of you who don't know, we spent 8 months out of the last year tramping across the country, riding on our thumbs (hitchin'). We covered almost the whole country and made it almost 20k miles before we stopped in March to work on a van that we bought.
Jesus, that van. We bought a 1979 Chevy Trans Van for $1000 in St.…Continue

My first set of locks were an epic fail whale. My first mistake was not to research a little longer, so I jumped the gun after seeing the dreadheadhq site. yeah, I know a lot of you are tutt-tutting and shaking your head. Used the shampoo and the dread wax, double no no!! In the begining i wasn't too thrilled with the wax it weighed my hair down and left me feeling icking. After the second attempt I gave up and went wax free. Took a good couple of months just to get the 2 uses of wax out.…Continue
I went in to work today only having 1 haircut scheduled. I was kind of bummed about having such a slow day, but ended up getting 3 walk in's and did a co-workers hair too. The second walk in I had was the first person to really complement my dreads.
As of last night almost my entire head is dreaded, except for a small portion at the top that I was just too tired to mess with last night. I pulled the top portion op out of my face and went to work with my crazy wet dreads lol! They had…Continue
So I am 4 months away from my one year mark! How cool is that? :D
I'm a few days lat at making a blog post but I figure better late than never.
So not terribly much has changed since last month but, I will say that I have started stretching my ear lobes. I freaking love it too. I'm only going to 00 but ya know. The dread process and stretching my lobes is a cool journey. I am currently at an 8 at the moment and I think I will go to 6 probably by the end of next week.…Continue
This morning I did my first TNR, to mark the beginning of this journey. I'm feeling obsessive about the process today; it's the excitement of finally doing this after so, so long of yo-yoing about it. I'll calm down in a day or so, as I work myself into a routine that involves countless hours of studying and writing and remember how to function without deadlines for a minute.
Relaxation for the win.
As of yesterday Some of my dreads are now 2 weeks old. I also finished the whole bottom portion, so some are just a day old. I should have just gone with a full head 2 weeks ago instead of messing around with this partial nonsense, but what can you do? Because of my lack of sectioning (which doesn't totally bother me), It is very difficult to TnR the rest of my head. So, hopefully I'll be able to finish them sometime today. Some of my dreads are VERY small because that is all the hair that I…Continue

HiI live in the U.K and want some Dr. Bronners. My sister is currenlty on holiday in Kissimmee, Florida on holiday and is gonna bring some back if she can find it. Currently she hasn't been able to find any. She says she has checked wallmart. What is it sold as ? body wash, shampoo etc. She is coming home is a few days so I need help quick :) thanks
stopped dreading a while ago, then chopped my hair in a cute short style ...
Now I'm starting to dread ! started on april 29th (2012)
will post pics tomorrow of day 3!
Today I am just drained and mentally exhausted. My brain has so many jumbled up thoughts, that I don't even know where to start this blog at. I apologize ahead of time if this makes no sense. It could quite possibly just end up being a crazy rant of sorts.
I thought my mom would have no problem with my dreads. My whole life she's known what a creative spirit I am. She has always been my biggest supporter, and never let me down. So I didn't think to ask her if she mined if I gave…Continue
I dissappeared from dreadlockssite some two years ago when I ventured off to california. Some of my friends here might remember, some not, either way, I have cut off my first set of dreads since then. I had started those with backcombing and wasn't satisfied. They FELL OUT and looked...bad. Not really the dready i expected, just bad. I had also used a small (just the recommended amount) of wax at the initial start and I must say for those even CONSIDERING…

This life has definitely be a full journey so far and I am grateful for all of my experiences and enlightenment. I can now see that no matter what we call the higher-power in this life, we all feel the same universal love. No two people see anything exactly the same. So we must all find what works for ourselves as individuals, and keep others thoughts separate from our own. Two people watching a sunset will witness something entirely different, but it's still the sun setting. People seem to…Continue
