hello lovelies! I have been following this community for quite awhile now, and you guys are so fabulous. What a great way to share dready pride! I love seeing everybodies natty heads, cause they're all so different but totally rad.

My name is molly o., I hail from the Boston area. I just looked in my journal from earlier this year and figured out that my dreads are 4 months and three days old...I thought they were older, for some reason. The lockage kinda crept up on me. They seem to be changing daily. Huzzah!

anyways, on the the point of my post.

1. I have shortish hair, my longest locks almost touch the end of my neck. I can put them in a ponytail (what a lame word!) and a few of the front ones flop out. I'm looking for new things to do with them, was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

2. I'm really curious as to what people have in their hair right now. One of my favorite things about dreads is that they're like an art project on my head. At the moment I have a gold ring, a few beads, a shell I got on a beach in mexico, a ring-type thing I made out of an old bracelet, a homemmade wire dreadwrap, a huge brass button, and some cloth I wrapped around one of my tips.


*pictures to come, I promise*

with love & art,
molly o.

Leopard geckos like dreads too!



Also, just wondering if anyone has ever heard of lighting dreads on fire in order to burn off loose hairs. A friend of a friend did this. I'm not recommending anyone try it unless they know what they're doing, but apparently she sort of lit the end of each dread and the flame went up the dread burning the loose hairs and tightening them. Anyone know anything about this? Ever tried it?
