Helloo.

Everything I do seems to be a bit impulsive, and my dreads were no exception. Although now I can't imagine ever going back to my old hair. I figured I'd stop lurking and share a few pictures. They're only about seven weeks old now. :]

The entire process is incredibly neat and I can't wait to see how they progress!

hello - I'm Eleanor and I live in Brighton in England. I have been thinking about dreadlocks for months, and this community has been my inspiration - I've been lurking about for a long time.

However, apart from the two main problems of my wildly fickle nature and lack of people to help me do it, my actual hair, apart from being very messy, is naturally the shinyest, straightest hair in the world. I made two dreads in the back of my head rather half heartedly the other day but they didn't last long. I think it might be quite a struggle and possibly take several decades.

Has anyone had success (I'm sure they have) with dreading straight shiny hair like mine and could you show me any pictures of how it went? You are all well fit - I am so fond of this community and everyone in it.

Here are some pictures of my hair at the moment:
