Sirius/Remus - Puppies


Hello everyone! First off, I'm loving looking at everyone's dreads, I've been checking things out for a few days now, and I decided today that I was going to go ahead and start my dreaded life. :D

I've wanted dreads for a very very long time, but I don't think I was ever ready for them. Now, however, I'm getting ready to move from Washington state all the way to NYC next month, and I think I'm completely ready for this commitment.

I started dreading my hair today, and I've only got the front done today, but the back should be done tomorrow. Here is a picture of my hair right now.

(sorry the quality is bad. I'll have better ones from now on!)


Hello everyone. My name is Tolga. I'm 19, and have just finished my first year at Keele university. I posted here a few years back, trying to start dreads in very short hair. I've waited patiently for my hair to grow, and finally started my dreadlocks a couple of days ago. I hope you like them :)

They're very frizzy with lots of loose hairs at the moment, But I've always loved the messier look for dreads. I'd like to thank this community and all its members for the invaluable information and beautiful pictures posted. It really has been an inspiration for me :)

Rounded ends vs wispy tail ends.

So today I decided to try my hand at rounding the ends of my now 4 to 8 month old dreads. I used a teensy tiny crochet needle, and I think they came out pretty good for never having tried it before..

What do YOU think? =D In this picture, only the ones on the right are rounded.

(no subject)

So... I don't know how many of you have heard of this or would like to go or are going but there is a love h2o festival coming up the 19th to the 21st.  You go and bless the water and stuff... lol.  I'm going to go I think to the one west of Edmonton and thought if any of you lovely people are going I would like to meet you.  Because you are all fabulous.  www.loveh2o.ca if you are interested.  There are sites worldwide though.

I don't know what I'm doing either... =P

And an update

I got my boyfriend to shave the sides of my head. That's a real accomplishment since he really doesn't like that and thought this was also too short at the beginning but then later found it fascinating and was running his fingers over it. Yay I am so glad i have a boyfriend who isn't annoyed or disgusted by this (dont think exhusband would have liked this)

Anyhow.. here are some new pics of my dreads, at 16 months now.

They really need maintenance bad but dont know anyone here in Düsseldorf yet that can do that xD Anyone here in Düsseldorf or nearby Germany by any chance?
