I have been a long, long time lurker in this community, for over two years now I believe.

Finally, after much ado, and several failed half-way attempts, I have all my fuzzy baby dreadlings full and intact. This time, all done by me, and me alone. I'm so happy to have gone through the experience by myself, I am already much more attached than I have been to previous locks.

There are thirty of them in total. Originally I had been aiming for more, but my hair is just so thin it would have been next to impossible. Look how small they are as it is! I'm a little worried about this, as some aren't even a pencil thickness and I know they will be getting thinner in the future. Had I gone any thicker I'm afraid the sections would have been so large that I'd have icky gaps and bald looking spots further down the road.

So, what do you think?Collapse )

Also, I am in the process of writing some step by step instructions on the dreading process. With any luck I'll be posting it some time in the next few days for everyone to look over and help me revise. I am hoping for it to be really helpful and informative for all the other newbies out there.

I posted a little earlier today about finally finishing my dreads. The pictures weren't too great, so I thought I'd post this one too. You can see how the additional rip and twist I've given them has really locked up the ends.

I'm so excited, I can't wait to watch my babies grow.

new dreads [30 Jun 2007|06:31pm]

Hello everyone. :) I'm Chelsey, and I have been lurking a few weeks, and just started my dreads on wednesday. I've wanted them ever since I was young, and just finally did them. I only have the front ones done because my hair is very very soft, and slippery and super hard to backcomb. So yeah, here are some nice photos.

Just a little update. Hope you all are well.
I can't believe how long my hair is getting, or how sun-bleached it's gotten from working on a farm the past nine weeks.
For anyone who cares to see the whole progression,
