Hi, I am new here and my dreads are pretty new (a few months) My husband did the backcombing, but  a lot in the back have come out, so I am letting them dread naturally,
These are my dawgs, and me!

too funny.

i know i just posted but a friend just put these up on facebook and i've never seen them.

i do remember that when he captured this one he fell off the log laughing.
i think its from when i came back from having an appendicitis-esque emergency that resulted in three days of over 39degree temperatures. shitty.

In which I post another picture post of new dreads...

Okay so seriously? Having dreads has completely consumed my life. But like, in a good way. It's a high maitenence style right now, for low maitenence later. There seems to be a saying in the dready community that dreads are a journey, and I'm only just discovering how true that is. So, in honor of that journey...I've decided to chronicle how they're doing, as well as other little things about my life (right now, dread related.) I kind of hope this become a regular thing, and I'm pretty excited about it, though I'll probably post to the community less often than I post to my own journal about it. Right. Here we go.

Hey guys !
This is my 1st post here *yay*
Im a huge fan of dreadlocks. Ive wanted them for as long as i can remember but ive never had the money ot my hair has never been long enough. My hairs finally getting to a decent length for dreadlocks and im sick of putting them off. Im gonna hopefully get a friend to do them instead of trying to do them myself. Ive made myself a baby one. Just too see how quick my hair locks up etc. This is is at 3 days old. Im pretty pleased with it ( :

If you guys have any advice or tips for me, id really apreciate it.

it's been about 3 months since i dreaded my hair now, and i just thought i'd share with you how they're coming along...i'm quite happy with them, and i haven't had many problems...quite a bit of loops, but they're mostly gone away already...
we used a combination of back combing and rip n twist and no wax was used...
my girlfriend, velvetdecay, dreaded my hair and did some of the maintinence on them
