Dreads at nearly 1 year in the local paper!
This weekend me and my workmates took part in a big charity event for StCatherines Hospice, based on the
Which generally means – acting like a prat getting very soapy and wet for a good cause. And soapy and damp did I get! My team was based on the pirates of the Caribbean as we’re a debt collection company (you know, taking money off people for a fee, bit like modern pirates…) Well we came 5th out of 10 and I got my dreads in the paper!

So hooray for dreads (now very tight thanks to being wet and soapy for hours)and hooray for campy small town british media!!
This was my second year, first year with dreads.
At some point during the day I saw four or five dreadheads in my line of vision.

Also, while most of my dreads have loose ends, a handful are rounded tightly.
How do I "split" the end of the dreadlock, so I can weave it in with the other?
