Beginning dreads, life changes

So it's been a long time since I've been on this website. The main reason for this is I cut my first set of dreads out. I have accepted that this is okay because my life has changed so drastically within the past 2 years. I feel as if when I first had dreads, I hit a really low point in my life. I hadn't found who I really was yet, and I was caught up in the wrong crowd. I feel like I wasn't really…

Update

Here I am, everyone is tight for money.

I traveled out of my body last night, It's strange when you get the realization that you are not just a mindless drone, You are a being of light, your soul stretches so much further then you will ever know.

My mind and soul reached out to the edges of consciousness last night for the second time ever.

I showed my sacred circle some love in the park, and listened to good music.

 I have cut back all of my medications because now…

And It Begins!

A few years ago I decided that I desperately wanted dreadlocks.  I've always gotten bored with my hair quickly.  From my natural brown I would dye red, platinum, black, purple, fire engine red...every color you could imagine until it just wasn't enough and I'd eventually shave it all off.

First I tried crocheting it and adding my own extensions.  I worked my ass off making those extensions.  Crochet hooks getting stuck in my finger, my thigh!  Those suckers are hard to remove,…

I've been a slacker!

I was doing really well tracking my progress, then life came up! :P 

Things have been going wonderful here, but very busy! Trying to spend a lot of time outdoors and enjoy the weather before it changes! :D

Today marks the 52nd day of not brushing for me! :D

Lots of little knotty things happening underneath my hair! I don't really do anything to my hair, no palm rolling, I don't even section my hair. 

I do brush my bangs, but only because I have to be able to get my hair out…

How to start off on natural dreads

Hi, I just joined this site and was wondering if anyone out there could give me suggestions on how I should start off; I am clueless but have been reading things on here which has helped ALOT and making me excited to do the natural way on my own rather than a salon.My hair is meduim curly hair. Should I comb after I wash or at all; Do I use specific shampoo(s); NEVER leave it in a bun or pony tail; is there teasing that should be done; should I leave it down the whole time during the first…

Freeformin. Day one

So upon, some kinda fate or something, I have decided to stop retwisting my dreads. My loctician was great and she never did any harm to me, but now she has moved into another state and I was retwisting on my own for a while. After joining this site again (I was a member once before), I realize that I always wanted free, strong, uncontrolled dreads, but I kept being told that I have to make them look better by retwisting and such. Today I have made the choice to stop and just let these…

16yr. Freeform Dreadlock Anniversary for Me

16yrs going strong. I knew once my hair started locking that I was in it for eternity. For me my dreadlocks mean freedom. I am free to be me and to love me for what comes out naturally. I have faced many confrontations and giggles and snide comments behind my back waiting in line at grocery stores,people shouting out of their windows "You nappy headed nigger" but you know I have become immune to all of their negativity.  It bounces right off of my aura because I truly love who I am and know…

Brand New to Dreading

Hello everybody. I am brand new to the dread community here and would like to introduce myself: I am a curly-haired man and am very excited to start my journey. I already backcombed 10 dreads on the side of my head tonight. The dreads seem very loose and tend to undo themselves. Any advice on how to stop this from happening, or how to tighten up the locks quicker? I heard palm rolling with salt helps them lock up. Right now I love…
