dead zone johnny & sarah


I haven't really done a timeline yet and I don't have too many pictures of myself that document the development and growth of my dreads, but here you go. Enjoy! For those of you just starting this journey, I think you will see that even the most unruly dreads will at somepoint begin to calm down. One and a half years after the start of the process my hair is finally getting to a point where I am happy with them. :)

Ok, non picture post booooooo :(
But thought I'd just share that I got my dreads done by a couple of friends yesterday! Yay I'm excited, errrm but they look a bit silly, I'm calling them my tarantula dreads cos of the way they stick up from the head and then taper off at the bottom, they look like spider legs!
But I'm trusting that they'll settle and be fine in a while.
Oh I have bright red hair so I look a little like sideshow bob too!
Talking of which I really need to dye it again, I've read all about dying dreads (I've been in this community for a while) I use directions colour, which is a conditioning colour, I assume it's best to wait til they've locked up a bit more then?
Grrr I cant stand having pink hair!! (it's just not me)
lol I'll cope
yay *excited*

Introduction post :)

Hello dreadies,

I'm new here so I thought I'd share some info & pics

My name is Marieke, I'm 21 and I'm from Holland (and I'm not the only one in this community I saw!)

I have dreads for 3 months now, and I dyed them black 3 weeks ago. As you can see, there are some brown spots visible, but thats because I had no gudu 'how to' dye dreads :p Now I know were to find information about dyeing, I think I will dye them soon, but I don't know wich color to choose.... any idea??

Oke, picture time!
