soo latley ive really been missing my hair, been tempted to take out my dreads but i just keep remembering what happened last time i cried and started dreading them 3 days after i took out my first set,
so i decided maybe i just need a change... so i bought a box dye, it said brown on the box but i guess since my hair was so light it rected weird,
anyways i eneded up with black hair, i was freaking outt!!!!!! it looked so fake on me, i have naturally dirty blonde hair and never have had my hair this dark before so i got some stuff to undo the dye that i put in
due to all the washing and dying my hair undreaded A TON at the roots i mean like alot it looks and feel like normal hair, only the bottom half is dreaded on alot of them, and my hair is still super dark,
tomorrow is my 1 year dreadaversary and my dreads look like crap
why couldnt i have just been satisfied, i wish i could go back in time i never would have tried to change them..... LESSON LEARNED =/

i wash my hair every other day with dr. bronners lavander soap, and occasionally spray my hair with salt water mixture...
TO ALL MY FELLOW DREADHEADS:
I cannot say how happy i am with my descion of starting over! i love all the new changes everyday! i wan tto thank all of you for all the encouragement ive been recieving from this site and youtube. Its everyones kind words that keeps me going,sometimes i look in the mirror and think that my hair looks horrible in the stage its in(and how unfair that some people in this amount of time have perfectly shaped dreads that actually look like dreads) and when people comment on my videoes saying "your hair looks DISCUSTING" or "those are NOT dreads" or "EW" it really brings me down and makes me feel so discourages...but then i remmeber all the people that send positive comments on my pics and vids and it puts a smile on my face and remind myself that its only going to keep looking better in time, AND remind myself of how insecure i was about my hair before having dreadlocks!!
I remmeber when i started my dreads i was always watching videos and looking at pictures and i have so many people inspired me to just go for it and lock up my hair... and for people to tell me now that i inspire them,and that i can be the one to help someone with there dreads, or inspire them to come join this journey with all of us warms my heart! i love helping other people and giving them tips ive learned ALOT about dreadlocks over the past year from personal experience.
i cannot wait to see how my dreads will look in another 6 months!!!!
TODAY I LOVE MY DREADS, and where i am in this journey

i had such a wonderful dream last night!!!!!! i was in a rain forest somewhere with a bunch of people, and i had crazy long beautiful dreads, and i was so happy and i was spinning in circles, and my dreads were moving so beautifully as i spun around, and i remember sitting on the ground talking to someone, and i was telling them how my dreadlocks had helped me to overcome some really hard times, just because i had so much positive energy built up in them, i could get through anything, they gave me strength.
i loved how they looked i my dream and it got me so excited for whats to come!!!
i ran to the bathroom when i woke up and looked in the mirror, and instead of being like ahh this is such an ugly stage of the process, i thought to myself my hair looks beautiful, do what you gotta do dread away!!!
