real hawk

big long birthday post!!

My dreads are one year old today! Hooray! I am SOOOOOOOOO much happier with this set at the one year mark than my last set of dreads. I wish I had better pictures of my last set to show how shitty they looked but obviously at the time i didn't want shitty dread pix, so the ones i have look pretty good, but don't be fooled, they were horrible.

ok so i'm planning on dreading my hair soon. i've read all the memories and a lot of websites, so i have a pretty good idea of what i'm doing.. but is there anything you did during the process that you realized you shouldn't have? or vice versa?
thanks in advance :)

I was at uni today and eating lunch when this guy asked me about my dreads, how you get them etc etc. He then asks me if I listen to regge music, I replied no, not really and then, hehe, he enthusiastically declared that I MUST be a skateboarder! I laughed, told him no, and then RAN AWAY! cause he was creepy. I thought it was an excellent example of stereotypes, though he missed dirty hippie...

Hey there, I'm Lindsay, a Canadian dreddie, and I've had my mess of dreads for 16 months now. They've been a lot of places with me, and I enjoy having them. However, I think I'll be combing them out soon. Idislike their length, so my current plan is to comb them out, and let my hair grow longer, and do it all over again! I love seeing other people's pics on here, and I appreciate reading that other people have had to try more than once to get the dreads they dreamed about!

If I can figure out how, I'm going to attempt posting some pictures...

I posted some pictures about 2 weeks ago right after I'd dreaded my hair and it was standing up.

here's what it looks like now
I cut off the ones in the back because I didn't like having that many. So now i just have them in the front.

love about...

people have made quite a few posts asking what you like most about dreads.
well here is a post with my answer.
these pictures are not of me. recently i was offered the opportunity to photograph a rock band in concert.
these photos are of the lead singer who has a dread head.
so what do i love most about dreads?
the movement.
