9 Months

I don't have too much to say, only that it is my 9 month dreadversary and I couldn't be happier :D

June 1 came a lot quicker than I had intended and now I have nothing to say.. : S

I will say that last week was a very trying week for me because I had been very sick(since about Friday throwing up and the like) and on that following Monday, mom took me to the ER and it turned out that I was dehydrated. I had laid in the bed for around 3 days and he friction of my pillows really…

8 month old dreads :D

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.…

7 Months

Hey there guys!

So I have been meaning to update with my progress but everything has been so crazy lately.. Anywho, my dreads are 7 months old as of April 1, 2012 and they are looking about the same I suppose.. Well actually a few folks on the street have said that I have "cool hair" or "nice dreads" which is comforting because I always feel like they don't look like dreads.

Anyways, a few things have changed in my life. I have decided to stretch my lobes and I have also taken…

5 Month Dread Update

Hey guys!

Happy February!!

My dreads are 5 months old today woot!

As some of you may or may not know, my dreads started out as twists that I re-twisted about once every 3 weeks and then it dawned on me, this is a waste of my time. So I stopped re-twisting and have let them dread on their own accord and the results have been tremendous.

They have come such a long way in these short 5 months and I'm looking for more to come.. The dreadies are essentially (for the…

3 Months!!

Tomorrow is my 3 month dreadversary. I'm so excited that I could literally pop. I have encountered a few dreadies that have decided to join forces with those around them and that's fine by me. I just slap a bead on them to help em out. I have also noticed that all of the dreads are actually staying together and not falling apart anymore so I can massage in shampoo or whateves without any worry.

I feel worlds more confidant now than I ever have and I feel like more people are opening…

Second Month Dreadversary

So tomorrow is my 2nd month of dreads.. I'm really pleased with the progress that My dreads have made.

I think its crazy because I found a few loops in them and I had no idea African-American hair looped up like that.. it blew my mind.. lol.. I like all the changes it is making in my life and all of the complements I have gotten.. I have decided to change my eating…

I just felt the back of my head and the friction from my pillow at night has my dreads locking up soooo much faster!! Wash day is tomorrow and I can't wait. My babies need it.. :)

This is probably one of the coolest things I have ever done for myself.. Soooo unbelievably happy I decided to do this. Oh I am so happy these days!!

One Month Dread-versary

Today marks the one month of my dreadlings! :D super excited about that.. I'll post pics maybe on Monday or Wednesday this week to show the progress.. I haven't touched it in a few weeks and I caught one of them trying to join another in a very awkward place, haha.. My mom keeps cracking jokes about them and making sure that I keep them clean.. I appreciate her understanding and my brother and my dad are behind me too.. I'm so happy that I finally decided to do this and that my…

Quickly approaching a month

Ok sooo, I haven't made a post about the actual 3 week mark or the 4 week mark, so I'm going to lump them together since there are 4 weeks in a month and September is almost over *tear.

Umm so the back and the sides are progressing more rapidly than the top is.. That's kinda cool haha. And I have noticed my inner beauty shining through :D people have been nicer to me and a lady at my church (whom I rarely talk to) said that I had pretty skin the other day.. I thought that was sweet of…

Approaching Week 3

Ok so, it has been almost 3 weeks since I officially started my dreads.. I'm super excited at the progress they have made! The fuzziness that I had mentioned in the other blog post has died down a bit and I think my hair is finally just going with the flow instead of fighting it. Which is a plus.. hmm what else, what else..... Oh yes, a few in the back are beginning to lock up more rapidly than before and that is super cool.. I'll keep you all posted with the progress.. One Love :)

2 week Check in

Soooooooooo, its been 2 weeks and I have seen some crazy good progress.. I have been washing my hair with Dr. Bronner's about once every 3 days (as my hair gets gross quick) umm, oh I read about spritzing it with salt water to help the dreads tighten and whatnot and IT WORKS!!! Im so stoked I can barely stand it.. The hair on the top of my head is still fuzzy and goofy looking but they are making so much progress! keep you all posted on it..

Dreads Spread Love..
