Holy cow your dreads are thick thick thick! Very cool. How long do those take to dry?

Here we go! *natural *


Member Journals and Timelines

Wow! In some of your pictures your hair looks so much like mine. But it seems to be going so much quicker! I wonder why that is.. hm. I guess that extra straightness really makes a difference.

I've been growing mine since December, but I was still brushing the top part..then I ended up combing out the tnr sections I had to start over for a full head of natural, so it's more like the middle of January.. Definitely need to get some more recent updated pictures. But yours seem to be loving their new style and getting right down to business!
Congratulations on such a beautiful start.

is it okay to wet my free form dreads every morning?


Dread Maintenance

I don't really have a for sure answer for you, but I am in the same boat. My hair is so straight and it flattens -.-
I have done the spray bottle thing a handful of times but then I started wondering if actually rinsing would be better.
I guess we will see what the others say. What month are you in?

Loops and zigzags


Dread Maintenance


lopenator: It will. Just stop waiting for it to happen. It makes it take longer. Just live your life and check back some time later.

That's what I've been doing and you're right, it totally makes a difference. When I first started really focusing on this head of dreads it was the month BEFORE school started. Now that I'm back in college I'm noticing huge changes every week or so without even fussing :) When people say leave it and forget it, that's the damn truth. Awesome.

bruiseviolet:

My dreads are about 3 months old now and they're looping like crazy :) 

So jealous. I've got some kinda wavy like and little itty bitty loop bumps but no real LOOPS.. at least not yet. I'm a little concerned I won't get them at all with hair as straight as mine :(

I want all the loops and zig zags (especially craving zig zags) and texture and waviness! I find that stage so beautiful. <3<3 I'm assuming it'll come with time.. I hope! *fingers crossed*

🤣🤭 That was an awesome pun, I'm lovin it.
Also, not to sound like a creeper, but your hair is sooo beautiful. Very inspiring. I've looked at your pictures more than a couple times through the past few weeks when I'm lurking the boards. Gorgeous. 💙

Thank you guys for welcoming me ☺️ I feel like I know some people a bit just by reading through so many messages. I was a tad afraid I'd get no replies.. 😳 but y'all are awesome 🤘🤘

Wow holy cow your story is intense. Thank you for sharing that. But yeah the teen and young adult years are crazy..

I didn't realize my wording 😖 but you hit the nail on the head; I did in fact barely survive overdosing.. twice. Sigh. Also lost my husband to a relapse overdose in 2018.. we were separated at the time. Very rough.

Super rad how long it's been since you touched any of that! I'm sure with all your pain it may have been tempting at times.

Hello all you beautiful people :)

My name is Jessie.  I'm a 30 year old female from Sacramento, Ca.  I've been lurking for quite some time now (OBSESSIVELY) but been a little too nervous to post.

I started growing my second head of dreads around the beginning of December 2019.  The year before (Nov 2018) I had TnR'ed my entire head and thought I knew what I was doing.  Although I didnt use any wax, gels, or the infamous crochet hook, my sections were forced and it never felt quite right.  I ended up combing them out at about 5 months.

I got the BUG again last December.  I was quitting my shitty fast food job and FINALLY going back to school (degree in Funeral Services) and somehow resurrecting my dread journey worked its way into my new beginning :P  It really felt RIGHT this time.  I'm a recovering heroin addict (6 years March 5th!) and I've been through quite a lot in my time.  But I'm finally blossoming into the strong and powerful, happy and successful woman I could have been all these years :)

I have suuuuper straight, soft, thin-ish hair a bit past my shoulders.  I began with TnR on the bottom portion of my head thinking I'd just go for partial dreads this time.  ....buuuut then I wanted more so I stopped brushing at all about a week later.  Some of the sections I did started forking so I split them where they wanted and left it be.  The rest of my head I'm letting nature take its course and figure out how it wants to dread on its own :)  I'm loving it.

Oh and I'm using the Goddess liquid from dreadlockshampoo.com.  It is amaaazing.

I took some pictures >_<  I couldnt tell which were best so I figured I'd just post em all :P  I'lm writing this on my tablet and the pictures are on my phone, so I'm going to have to do a separate reply to post them.

Sorry for the ramble.  :/ I hope I can make some new friends here!
