Just about 6 months...

Wow.  Things are looking pretty crazy! TONS of bumps and twists and knots -- way cool. 

Method: natural/neglect.  Never did anything else except separate (and do that much less often now that the dreads are taking form.) Wash with soap daily, and do a BS/ACV rinse about once a week. Hair is sooooo soft. I love it!

Started with waist-length hair.  It's now just half-way down my back.

Question:  What comes next?  Do the dreads get thicker? Do the crazy turny-turns in my…

6 months into our life journey, by Mrs. Spivey

Today we've been married six months. We started our dread journey a week after our wedding since both of us were sick of our long hair knotting, go figure. The past six months have been pure wedded bliss with lots of interesting lessons thrown in. We're on the journey of life and dreadlocks together, which is pretty interesting in itself. Having "started" to grow dreadlocks has really been an eye opener. The journey can make things fall into place believe it or not. It shows the true colors…

11 month 4 day twist & rip & natural

Namaste my peace loving dreadheads, I thought it was about time that I posted some photos on my twist & rip dread journey.  It has been 11 months since I threw away my hairbrush, shampoos and vanity.

In the photo below, my hand shows how long my hair was when I started my freedom.  As you can see, I have…

hmm..nearly 16 months neglect. Reflection.

Namaste! Reading my first few blog posts..It’s amazing how much i have changed and grown since then. My locks are doing great, i am feeling fanfuckingtastic! Not to brag or boast but locks really do effect life for the better! It has made it much easier to determine who’s real and who’s not, not to say it was difficult before, it’s just instantaneous you could say... the real people come to me now; with open conversations it’s something that was a rarity before dreads. And i love it. One…

10 days ahead of six months

Nearly six months and lots of things are happening to my hair now...

had to complete rip apart a congo on the back of my head some days ago...

and today i had to rip several dreads, including the ones of my fringe, and some of the sides, because there were hairs from one dread inside the other... now i'm with a lot of frizz, but the dreads are not harmed [the sections still together, and still tightening well]... 

i don't care too much about the…

Almost 5 months!

Weeeeee! My 5 month neglect dreadlock anniversary is coming up in a few days! I'm so stoked! Check out my Youtube channel for a complete timeline! Stay tuned for my 5 month loc update!

I've seen so much transformation since I began my journey. I'm loving every minute of it! I have put an embellishment in for each month I've had them. I'll show you guys each bead in my next video and put in my next one.

Combed Out Three of my Dreads

Most of my dreads are quite stiff, and a couple of them have hard spots. I assumed the worst: WAX. So I combed out one of the thin-ish, only half-way dreaded ones out, expecting to see the horrors of waxy remains...but no. There was literally nothing there. So I dunno why they're stiff or anything. Anyway, I decided to comb a couple more out, mostly the ones in the front/middle, because...the ones in the middle are basically forced into sections that don't feel right, and I get the feeling…

7 months ago today...

I stopped brushing my hair, and threw out my shampoo. I decided that since thats when I started just letting it go...thats when I'd call it "birthday". Yes I did VERY LIGHT back-combing about a month ago...but only once and mostly I haven't touched them. Happy Birthday babies!

Almost 4 months!

My dread's 4 month birthday will be on December 7th, but I'm just too excited not to post pictures now. There may be a few coming later as well. As you may note from the pictures, they are all developing nicely, and for those that were just a little too awkward and slow, I bound a few together (strategically of course!) with some wool thread that I had left over from a previous crochet project. My loops are running rampant and I just love it. Each dread has a life all it's own. Best part is,… Continue
