Awaseru's dreads


Member Journals and Timelines

Week 5. My hait is so short I can't put it in a ponytail anymore. My hair is starting to feel heavy when washing it and it is taking longer to dry.

The tea tree & rosemary shampoo bar from Vicky arrived Thursday and today I finally had the chance to use it. I love the smell and it really knotted up my hair. It took me a while longer than usual to separate my hair after using it. 

I'm so in love with my hair! I feel so amazing every day and I can't stop checking my hair in every reflective object I meet. I love how my hair keeps changing and doing its thing.

I can't give you any advise, I'm a noob myself, but I love your dreads.  They are beautiful!

It might seem like nothing is happening, but the fact that my hair is in clumps even when dry is huge for me. When wet my hair would form clumps, but a few hours later it would dry and explode.

I started my dreads with two strand twists. My curls clumps naturally when wet so I used those clumps to decide how big the parts would be. They were bigger in the back so in the back I'll have bigger dreads.

Pulling apart is what I'm doing. I don't want bald spots!

Hello everyone


Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone!
I just started my journey. I live in the Netherlands and I'm 28 years old. I've wanted dreads for a long time but the time was never right. Then last October I woke up one morning and knew, this is it, I want dreads, I do not have any doubts anymore.

Because I wanted to be sure I didn't dread my hear immediately, I started doing research and preparing my family for the change. I had to prepare my mother especially, she is trying so hard to be supportive! She never said anything bad, but I can see it in her eyes. As I'm a black woman somehow its expected of me to have super tight and neatly done hair. My hair has always been a mess though, I don't pull my hair simply because I don't like it. It hurts! But yeah, my mother thinks dreads should be "perfect". She's the best though, supporting me while thinking I look terrible.

Originally I started freeforming January 2nd.but that didn't work for me, I would wake up every morning to one giant dread that would easily take up to 4 hours to separate, and then it would happen the next night again. This was very damaging to my hair so I stopped and after a week or two I started over. February 1st I put twists in my hair and now I leave them be. Most twists have come undone, but they're still separated at the root, so yay for that!

I'll upload some pictures when I'm at my computer.
