dreadly

(no subject)

is it just me, or are there a few more then usual posts lately about people combing their dreads out? Or, even, shaving them off?

makes me sad. I mean, I know that for each of them it was time, and they had their reasons, but I'm always sad to see them go.

*sigh*

6 months in a week or twoish. Expect me to burden yous guys with a timeline, Yo.

Eeeek!

So last night I had a dream that I dyed my dreads black and magenta...but that I accidentally used the conditioner packet that comes with the boxes and they all turned into this long, flowing, super soft undreaded head of hair.

I mean, it looked flipping awesome, but I was really sad in the dream. I didn't think I had the heart to start all over and go through it all again after I'd -just- gotten my dreads to a place where I was really in love with them.

In the end I discovered I still had some random perfectly fine looking dreads in the front and I decided to leave it like that.

I remember the hair in my dream being SO soft and fluffy and nice, and it almost made me miss having regular hair...then I remembered my hair was NEVER that nice and I'm much happier now, haha :D

I had to share it, just because it was so weird.

I'm FINALLY not dead broke, so I can afford to get another USB cord for my camera. So much has happened up on my head since I've been able to do a post, it's a little bit shocking :)

hello I am new!

Hello there I'm very new to this
I have wanted dread locks for years and decided to finally just do it
at first my friends started them for me
but my mother's boyfriend is a former rastafarian and had them on his head for 12 years
so I brushed out the ones my friends did for me (hurt like a bitch)! washed my hair
and just let it go
so I am offically a natty dread haha.
I have been washing it every 2 days I recently bought oil to start putting in my hair to keep my scalp healthy.
I've been dreading for a week now

sorry pics are soo big I will try to resize again :)

My locks will be turning 2 this week and i am soo very excited!!
I do have a question though. I have noticed that a few of my dreads are becoming like undreaded and not hard, and it is happening in the middle of the dread. does anyone know why maybe or have experienced this? I am thinking it maybe has to do with me putting my hair up cause my locks are skinny. IDK I am getting a lil nervous. Help!
Anyways I celebrated my 22 b-day last friday it was great. I made a fool of myself but i usually do that anyways.
Here are pix.
me 22

I will proly do a timeline in the next couple of days.
I am going to start updating my journal too i haven't posted since 06 but i just feel the need to....
Peace and love to you all.

One Month

DSC_2596

My dreads are pretty much as tight and mature as my previous set were at 5 months. I'm not 100% sure of what happened other than I wasn't getting any action with the old ones... but I won't complain! I rounded the tips yesterday and did some clean-up.
