I just thought I would start off by introducing myself. I'm new to this forum. I'm also a pretty new dreadie. I started my journey January 15. I started to use the neglect method until about mid May. I got a friend to dread up the rest of my hair. So if we are going by the age of my youngest dreads, I'm 7 weeks into my journey. I'm so thrilled with what this journey is teaching me.
A bit bit about myself. I am 31 on the 10th. I am a mom of two beautiful girls. They are 5 and 2. I live in a small mountain town Golden BC Canada. I love being outdoors and gardening. I own a holistic studio and teach yoga and am a personal trainer. Life is good really!
I would love love to hear a little about you guys if you would like to share! I'm so looking forward to actually being a part of this forum!
Hello again everyone! Well it has been a little over a year since I first found this community, my dreads are still babies but getting bigger and better all the time, I just had to switch to huge elastics and I can't hold my ponytail in one hand anymore!
I have missed you all, your advice, wisdom and laughs. Of course most of all the reminders of what I am working towards and that it will get better with time. I wish I had some pictures to share with you, I should have gotten someone to take a picture of me when I had my hair down for a day (quite a rare occasion since I work in retail with pets who like to get stuck in dreads).
Over the last year I have learned a few things and I thought I might share them with you all. Lice/ fleas/ mites are all killed with Diatomaceous earth which will also clean your scalp at the same time. Tropiclean Spa (for pets) is more natural than most shampoos and leaves no residue like most shampoos. I love adding wool to my hair! No one ever believes that you can do all of this yourself (even people with dreads). People are more accepting in a small military town than a large multicultural city. So now you know where Im at in my life, I hope to talk to you all again soon.
Welcome to everyone who I have not met yet I hope we get the chance to talk soon
This is the emergency/ spare DT site, not sure if anyone will ever see your post here as its like a secret limbo site. The main DT forum should soon be running again, down due to a bug, but you can access it via tapatalk for the moment lipstick. Dreadlocktruth, not dreadlocktruth(ish). The Facebook site is also quite active now.
Hiiii I'm Kassandra but I go by Kat 25, married, mom of two incredible little boys (4.5 & 2.5) and I'm currently nearly 30 weeks pregnant with a baby giiiirl ♡ Originally from FL but moved to OH, stay-at-home mom. I'm 19 months into my freeform/natural dreadlocks journey, I have had them tidied up once though.
Hello! I used to post on the old forum quite a bit when I first started my dreads two and a half years ago. I haven't been quite as active on the forum but luckily I caught the announcement before the old site disappeared so I could find this one! Hi all! 22 years old, currently living and working in California as a veterinary technician/assistant and I am studying to be a veterinarian =D
