Hi, I'm new. I'm Sarah and my dreads are between about 2 months old and 2 weeks old. Yeah, mad props to my sister fluffy_knows for helping me dread and dye my hair.

In the beginning , I was young, blond with long wavy hair. (BORING)

Then, it was time for a change.

And soon began a long series of hair dying. (Please excuse the crappy photo.)

While looking at hair dying things online, I was soon introduced to the idea of dreading my hair and I fell in LOVE.

So, I made my first dread.

After seeing how much effort was involved, I, of course, enlistied my sister ( fluffy_knows )for help.
We stretched out the process because we have about the combined attention span of a goldfish.

And then we got tired of dreading and my hair was long enough to touch my neck, so I grabbed my trusty scissors and went chop chop.

We also gave me an undercut, so there would be less hair to dread. I thought my mom was going to have a heart attack.

And then my hair was finally completely dreaded and there was much rejoicing.
This also led to much hilarity from bedhead.

But then I became sick of teal hair.
So we bleached the crap out of my hair. Then we dyed it.

And before lishd asks, yes, I used the tutorial. I would link it, but your website is down now for me.

And no nudes but instead, me in a bikini I knit myself:
