oh so this is normal then... good. i was thinking that but then i started to worry. lolz. thanks
yikes, so i know i haven't been on here in awhile. been so busy. but i have a question for you dread heads out there. so my dreadlings are almost 5 months old, on the 1st they will be. and all of the top layers of my dreads are dreading awsomely. but the bottom layers aren't doing anything.....
i wash my hair every other day with dr. bronners soap. and my dreads that have already started to form look beautiful. but the bottom layers don't want to dread..... any advice or words of wisdom to share?? am i just trippin or am i doing something wrong??
also on the 1st i was going to do a baking soda & apple cider vinegar wash on them to celebrate my 5 month dreadiversary..... i know lame. but any advice about that as well would be much appreciated.
happy holidays lovelies! :3
So I have a couple of beads on some of my baby dreadlings that have stories. The first one I received in Kerrville at the Folk Festival from A fellow hippie chick such as myself, she said it matched my aura.The second one I received this last Sunday from another hippie chick at a CocoRosie show, she asked if I was dreading the all natural way, I replied yes and she took a bead off one of her dreads and slipped it onto one of mine. Then she proceeded to give me a hug. I embraced her back. Will cherish these beads in my dreadsfor a long time. They mean alot to me. These moments ive shared with people are special to me. Just wanted to share that with you guys. :3 tehe! Keep spreading the love, peace!
my hair is pretty short so it doesnt get stuck on too much. but when i go hiking i come home with a trees worth of sticks in my hair. :3
I embarked on the dreading journey officially starting about a month ago. I am already starting to see some forming, my hair is getting wild and I am already loving my ugly baby knots. The top layer of my hair had already started to take shape but the bottom layers not so much. Just takes time of course. :3
But I chose to embark on this journey because I decided why the hell (k)not?! As far as my job goes... I get shit for it every day. I cannot stand how vain society is, I guess it never occurred to me until after my decision to let go of all that vanity. Along with my dread journey I have decided to eat better, I stay away from processed foods as much as possible, I take vitamins, and I also exercise more, I have been doing yoga and practicing more meditation. I walk bare foot everywhere that will let me in barefooted, I even walk to college bare footed, it makes me feel more down to earth, like now I have this connection with the earth more than ever before. I can truly say I am as happy as I have ever been.
I am going through a metamorphosis and this is just the beginning, I am a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly. I cant wait to look back on this like a year from now and see the progress I'm making. :3
