Lovely GUDU folk! I hope this is okay. I used to read this community in the small hours of the night, when there wasn't much going for my life. Just me and the dark. You're wonderful folk - there's an inspiring happiness and acceptance here, there really is!

I remember a girl studying piano in eastern Europe, I think, who was aiming to let her hair dread up naturally. I'd love to know how you got on, or anyone else here who has fine, straight hair that's dreaded naturally or with a little help.

(Mine's like that - & while I've never dreaded up, I have been dreaming about wool braids, and my uncut-for-years hair is my hermit's beard even though I'm no hermit these days!)

Big love and kusjes to all. :D

And if anyone knows where in the UK I can get 3mm/8g (ish) wooden plugs for oh-so-slightly stretched ears, that would be fabulous too!

New, sort of

Hi there members of GUDU. I've lurked this community for some time now, mostly forced by kikkomato shortly after i started her dreads. Since then I've done another full set of dreads, and two half sets (if you can call it that) on various friends, I also do dread maintenance for friends, using the backcomb&crochet method (i personally feel it works best when dreading all types of hair). I do have one little dread of my own two and plan to do a full set once my hair is much longer.

I know I just posted a couple of days ago.... but I want to post again! :) I've been working on this painting for the last week or so in my spare time and finished it today. I'm in a really amazing and beautiful relationship and love being inspired by it. This is my version of me and my man. I captured this moment in this piece because we have daily moments like this in real life. I took this pic with my webcam for him so he could see I had finished it and thought my hair looked pretty nifty so I thought I'd share!
