Member Journals and Timelines
Looks great so far, my roots did/are doing the same bumpy craziness, it gets pretty crazy as it progresses!
Twist and rip,and I have just left them alone since.

Are your parents from Idaho then? I live in Idaho and grew up here and the mentality here is extremely conservative and most of the population is very judgmental to anything that is different from the "norm" let it slide. I don't have all that much support but then I'm not doing it for anyone else, in fact I'm doing it to get away from everyone else s expectations of me.
Hello all, I have browsed these timelines and this site for months now and decided it was time to create a timeline. They have helped me so much to see other peoples progression and the questions, feelings, doubts, and triumphs that other people have had. I have always wanted dreads, since I can remember but held back for so long due to misconceptions of permanency, hygiene and honestly fear of judgement. I have finally reached an awakening point in my human experience where I am letting go of false constraints and expectations society does it's best to hold us down with.. I feel this journey is a part of that awakening and I am escaping the prison of control...
I know it's silly but here is a pic of some craziness going on at 2 1/2 months. I did comb out the one crazy one that causing too much tension in an awkward place but it feels better already cuz I went with the natural part of my hair line rather then forcing a direction.
Above is about 7 months I think. I had a couple large ones I separated but I may have already discussed that somewhere. I have completely let go and allowed them to go natural. I love the chaos and beauty of them ..
I have 5 kids, 14 month old girl, 8 year old girl, 11 year old boy with Autism, 13 year old girl and a 15 yr old girl with RAD ... I have to go to meetings all the time with the school boards, therapists, counselors etc. I also have a bachelors degree in human services and will be entering the professional workforce soon and my husband and I own a business and both have tattoos...everywhere. I am only 2 months in my dready journey and they are a mess but I love them and they are extension of who I am. I refuse to follow stereotypes and I have been breaking peoples expectations of me all my life. Nobody has had the balls to say anything negative to me, they will state they don't like them but nothing towards me personally. My kids all love them and now my teenagers are growing their hair out so they can dread too. Like everyone else says, it's your life.
Your timeline is Badass!! I hope mine progress like yours they look awesome!
Mine are twist and rip and my roots are doing exactly the same thing. I'm only coming up on month two and so far all mine have stayed in but did loosen a lot. I have some crazy loops and bumps and stuff. I know their doing what their supposed to so I wear a lot of hats/tams/headbands for now. It gets discouraging but keep truckin..
