ive browsed this sight many times but i'm new as a member. always had a love for dreadlocks and wanted my own. this is the first time i'm taking it seriously and i'm doing it all on my own. i've just started i have the whole underneath part on the back of my head dreaded i started them on dec 30th, 2011. i'm slowly working on getting my whole head done. i've backcombed and crocheted don't plan on using any wax or anything. i have not washed my dreads just yet but i've been washing the rest of my hair with... handsoap lol, probably not the greatest thing but i just dont want to spend a bunch of money on products. anyhow i dont know who will read this but i would like to hear your story!
