FINALLY

After WEEKS of researching, watching dread videos, looking at dreadlock products and trying different methods, I've finally started my dreads.

They're a little thicker than I wanted, but I eventually want extensions and it's taking forever to do them anyway. Damn, I've lost quite a bit of length from backcombing.

I've crotched the bottoms, which was probably a bad idea, but since my hair is ridiculously manageable it'll probably help stop them falling out.

My partner wasn't happy about me getting them -with the oldargumentthat dreads are for black people- but through compromise *cough*femalemanipulation*cough* she came round and even sectioned some of my hair for me. :D

Unfortunately, now I've got half a head of fuzzy dreadlocks and my mum's coming over in a couple of hours. Wont she be surprised.

...

Where's my hat?

My mind is officially blown.

My dad actually LIKES the dreads. He's not the most open-minded person when it comes to stuff like this, but... just wow.

I barely expected toleration, but LIKE??

Well, that's one problem out of the way. :D :D :D

How are you doing the extenders? Try google how to sow them on to the ends instead of using the crochet hook. Good luck on your dread journey

so what were you supposed to do after the 3 months was up? come get them redone? or worse?

awesome you avoided that....

backcomb & crochet are very damaging but just don't mess with the hook again & give em love, time & washing & they should start looking pretty good!

Oh, and I'm SO glad I didn't go to a hairdresser for them. A woman I spoke to had them done, and she said they used wax (alarm bells ringing at that moment), and they lasted about 3 months.

3 MONTHS?! They've supposed to last forever!!
