So this is my first posting here, and I thought I would share a few pics of my newly started dreads. Lish started them Nov. 1st, and I am already in love with them. And I'm hoping this pic cut is going to work, even if it looks screwy!

I've been letting my hair dread naturally for about a month, with the addition of backcombing the roots a week or so ago. A few days ago, a group of about 20 hairs (? a small strand) fell out, but I dismissed it as getting caught on a hairtie. However last night, a sizeable chunk about twice the size of the first one fell out.

Now I dye my hair but the condition is honestly quite healthy at the moment. My best guess is the lack of conditioner (I rarely used it before but have switched to using solely ACV and dr bronners bar soap) maybe? I wash my hair 1-2 times a week.

It could also be the fact that my hair is tied up every day and under a hat for school. This can't be avoided, but is it maybe the hair ties I'm using? Is it time to revisit the 80's and get some scrunchies?

It also just occurred to me that my cat has always loved to chew on hair, and probably even more so now that they're dreads. This is a possibility that would make me sleep a lot easier, but want some other opinions on what could have caused this. I read the memories on this topic but didn't see anywhere it said specifically what caused breakage or specifically what the best way to fix it would be.

I'm loving my dreads but at this point I wouldn't be opposed to conditioning the hell out of them and attempting the process later.....

I was on camp with church and met a awesome girl called Amanda, who also had dreads. So we decided to cut on dread each, switch, and chrochet them back.

Amanda to the left, and me to the right.
(Her locks was 2 moths and mine are 2 years.)

a few halloween pictures

I was going to go as the ever-so-clever Medusa, but once I got my hair up I decided I didn't like it sooo I just threw on a pair of Halloween leggings (spandex pants found in the children's clothing section :] ) and headed out.  Took a few shots with my dreads before hand, then a few others where you can see them properly throughout the night.

Wanted to share something I created in my studio this morning. I have a couple of rouge dreadies sticking out the back of my wrap in the bottom picture (so it counts as dread related) *wink*.

I gave my friend Tara dreads while I was up in North Eastern PA for the weekend. They were born on Nov. 1st and they look a bit like this...

Sorry if it's not really a great picture, I lost my camera so I'm just working with the pictures she has of them. But they came out real good, her hair naturally dreads itself if she lets it so...=) Also I did some color in my hair, pink and blue. I'll update when I have pictures.
Hope everyone had a good halloween weekend! Don't forget to vote.
