the most beautiful dreads


Dreadlock Picture Gallery

I love these dreads, they inspire me. I want the same length one day :)

Torie Shea! I love how light and free these dreads look. Like a lion. <3

And Heather. I remember when I first joined this site and started to let my hair dread, I would read about Heather's troubles & frustrations. But her hair looks so beautiful now. I'm almost at 11 months and my hair isn't mature yet, but it's in the teenager phases and I'm perfectly content, because Heather has shown me that it's worth the wait.


Also, on my first day on this site, I found this guy, Jack Roth. I love his locks so much. I hope I don't sound like a mega-creep, but I have this picture saved in my phone, because it reminds me that that's how I want to look one day. I love the length, the width of his locks, everything. He is probably my biggest inspiration (except I don't think he went totally natural?)

Maybe one day, people will call my dreads beautiful! haha

My dreadlocks, 6 + months. :)

This is awesome! From what I can see, they look so healthy and like they're on the right track!
I'm almost at 11 months and, while my hair was a lot shorter than yours seems to be, mine isn't that mature yet.

I think the longer your hair is, the easier it is to dread, but like I've heard plenty of times - everyone's hair is different and it's your own journey. It took me a long time to learn patience (and I still don't have a lot, when it comes to dreads I do, though) and I wasn't living spiritually and my dreads suffered for months because of it. Once I started to turn my life around, that's when they started forming :)

Spirituality, Dreadlocks and Sobriety


General Talk

Hey, guys. My name's Steven Wind and my dreads are about 10 months along now.

When I first started my dreadlocks, I was really anxious and freaked out about every little thing. For some reason, after reading hundreds of posts on this site, I thought that -I- would be different and my dreads would come along after like two weeks or two months, even.

For a long time, it felt like there was no progress happening whatsoever.
I started them on August 14, and by September, I started taking pills. I've had a drug problem in the past, with heroin and various other substances, and this was not a good idea at all.

After a few months of taking pills every day, I went back to heroin.

I had a few knots in my hair, but nothing substantial at all.

As my addiction progressed, I became suicidal and absolutely miserable - I saw nothing good out of life except getting high. On Easter weekend, while my parents were inJamaica on vacation, I took a train to San Francisco in an attempt to die.I've always wanted to live there, and I wanted to see it before I overdosed and took my own life.

I met a guy named Sean and I didn't realize that he was tripping on LSD until about midnight that night, but he took me around and helped me to find a place to score some dope. It didn't happen because the area was filled with cops at night, but the next day I found some. I got a motel room and just continued to use and use and use. And I just thought to myself, 'Is this it? Is this how the rest of my life is going to be?Am I going to take my life because of my dependance on a drug?'

I had had my phone turned off the whole 3-day train ride there and the two days that I was there. But I needed help. I asked God to help me, and soon after that, I turned my phone on. My mom's text message was at the top of the many messages concerned people had sent me. She said she was in San Francisco, to please meet her.

I called her and we met up. She took me home the next morning and I went to a treatment center. I now have a little over a month sober.

Now that I've gone back to my spiritual roots, my dreads have really blossomed. My sections are pretty clearly defined (though I do have to rip some bigger chunks apart every so often) and I really do have some teenage-dreads on my head. In fact, all of my hair is full of teenage-dreads.

It's interesting that once I changed my life and am now trying my best to love myself and have a relationship with my higher power, my dreads start to really take form.

I'm glad to be sober, alive, and a dreadhead.

Keep livin', folks!

Hey, guys! Just a quick update:I'm almost at 9 months and a week or so ago, almost seemingly overnight, all these semi-mature dreads just seemed to pop up. It's amazing! Just stick with it and your dreads will come!I'll post pictures sometime soon.After 7 months or so, i stopped doing the bs wash and got a coconut scented solid shampoo bar from lush and it has absolutely been working -wonders- . I'm sure in three months or so, my whole head will look almost fully dreaded!Peace & love to all.

I still get the white flaky stuff, but I've heard that it's justnormal, so I don't really worry about it.

Anyway, I'm almost at 4 months, one week shy, so I decided I'd take a few pictures of my best dread.

Short straight blonde hair... my "locking" journey ;-)


Introduce Yourself

I haven't used any beads yet. I dunno why, I think I'm waiting for them to mature more, because I feel like they wouldn't stick in my hair at this point.

I know! 4 months! Time really does fly. It's funny, too, 'cause on my 3 month anniversary, I thought it was my 4 month, and when I realized I was wrong, I was like, 'I have not been paying attention, at all.' haha.

I haven't been doing sea spray soaks because I've just been putting it in my bs wash, but because of you, I decided to do it today, so we'll see how it works out. I just try to be patient, and I feel like spraying my hair with it is just trying to speed up the process too much, you know? Like I won't be able to keep up with it or something. I want my dreads to mature at their own rate, but to each their own! If it's working for you, then why shouldn't I keep trying it? 8)
