Start of a new adventure

1. Start

I have come to realize that my crochet dreads did not seem to be the best of choices. Just a little misfortune to find this site after having the crochet dreads installed. Don't get me wrong; I love the dreads I'm having now, but during my dread search I wasn't able to find a way to let the dread develop the way I encounter here: the - lovingly - neglect way.

So now I have arrived, I have thrown overboard the…

Where to start?

I wanted dreadlocks in highschool, but I'd probably have cut them off early because at that time it seemed more like a fashion, as opposed to spirituality. I think a lot had to do with my love for herb. In short, dreadlocks looked cool and it was a stoner thing.



Now, it's so much more than that. I started my dreads before I started smoking again, so it's not a stoner thing for me anymore. It's a tattoo on my hair reminding me of spiritual growth.



4 months ago, I started… Continue

Why I have dreads, judgment, and acceptance

Just wanted to share my vlog on my dreadlocks journey, answering the question, "Why do I have dreadlocks?" as well as discussing what it has taught me about judgment and acceptance.  I really hope you enjoy it!!  Please comment and share your journey with me if you have a YouTube channel!  I would love to follow your journey and share in that process with you!…

I am Dreadlock

I have a confession.  After eight days of pretty surprising progress, I conditioned and combed my hair out last month.  I freaked out over something or other, but you know what?  I'm tired of freaking out, man.  Or should I say, it's time to let my freak flag fly?

I have decided that I no longer care what anyone thinks--or more likely does not think--of me or my hair.  Sure, some will notice, some will judge.  But this journey won't let me go; I must stop combing and let peace and…

Week 2

I'm about 2 weeks into this journey. It feels like my dreads are already starting to take form. It's an exciting feeling when I wake up and all of my hair is happily clumped into baby dreads.

I'm up to 39 dreads so far. I have a feeling this may increase though due to the fact that some of my larger dreads seem to want to separate. I've been helping them do so and figure it's best for my hair to decide what he wants to do.…

3 Weeks in. And I am just beginning to realize that its all about patience.

So today is my third week of my long journey of natural dreads and well, reading a lot and thinking a lot, and just having conversations with friends(not specifically about dreads, but life, faith, religion, spirituality). I finally realized that my dreads will just happen and that time really is relative and we all just need to be ourselves and live for what we believe is right. As a Christian I believe my purpose in earth is to glorify God and I want to achieve that through changing the…

Haven't dreaded just yet...

I'm very excited to start my dreading journey. I have an appointment to get my hair dyed on Tuesday, back to my original natural hair color. I want my dreads to be with my natural hair color because what's gonna happen when my hair grows back out? I'll have blonde bits on top & the rest will be brown & I don't want that at all. So I'm going to dye it back to it's natural color & then near my birthday (March 25th) I will be starting my dreading journey! I'm very anxious. The other…

motivation to start my dread journey

So, long story short, i've been wanting to dread my whole head for about a year and half. I've had 1-3 dreads in my hair for the most part during that time period (twist and rip). i've been planning on getting a friend to twist and rip all of my hair, but now i am leaning way more towards the natural method. I do have a more relaxed job and will be going to college next year so the timing seems pretty decent. i have fairly thick hair but its pretty straight with a little bit of wave. it…

Ch-ch-ch-changes...

Methinks these dreads are growing into my brain. These past two weeks have seen a lot of personal growth. First i effectively kicked a decade-long caffeine addiction. As counterintuitive as it may seem, my energy level has gone up. i'm eating healthier, more natural food now and smoking less. i'm calmer, more peaceful. i exercise patience more often. It's easier to not get frustrated when everything is just...good. It's good because it is. i feel cleaner, lighter, energized and…

My Journey, part 1.

To dread or not to dread. I can't say that it was a struggle to make that decision. I've been exposed to dreadlocks, not through any media outlet, but through family and friends. So the decision to dread was a somewhat easy one for me. The how, however, was a more difficult decision. I did all the research I could, asked for advice from current dreadheads, contemplated and thought through my decision. I wanted whatever I chose to be something I was both comfortable with and would stick…

This is what I sound like

I've been a member of this community for... I have no idea. It's been a while. I've never contributed though, mostly because when I signed up I was at the very beginning of my journey.

I think it all started one day in Brighton, when I first saw a woman with a head full of brightly coloured dreads. I have no idea whether they were real or fake (memory eludes me, and I didn't have an eye for such things back then), but that was definitely the moment I fell in love with dreads.

I…

the journey

the journey to any destination takes several steps if it was just the destination that was important then anyone could "climb mount everest" by taking a helicopter to the top, or even just photoshopp9ng their photo there.

the dread journey is no different then the journey to the highest peaks, or even to the stars.

you dont earn the destination by taking shortcuts, or by faking your way there, you earn it step by step through the hardships  and trials that make it  a…

loc reflections: month 2

Hi guys! If I am creating this post than I have surpassed my second month of loc bliss. This month has been to say the least.. exciting.=) My roots are locking wash by wash and the loose hair is starting to feed in. Progress is happening alot faster than I expected. I have received great compliments among peers and strangers has given me a great push to keep striding on. The support from this site has been a great one. I have met great people from all faces of life and its been awesome. I…

Hi peoples! :) This here be me first YouTube video, so excuse the poor quality maybe? ;)

Baby Steps

On July 6, 2012 I threw away my brush. I have grown very fond of the look of natural, freeform dreads and I have decided to take the plunge. On my third day of no brushing, no conditioner, and the least amount of shampoo possible, I'm feeling some knots form in my hair. It's nothing seious yet, but my hair doesn't have the smooth, silky feeling it usually does. For once, I'm excited about this!

Yesterday, I was running some errands and decided that I would pick up…

loc reflections: month one.

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…
