I'm Paula, 39, I live in Wiltshire (UK). I'm a mum of 6, currently learning lots of craft skills to eventually use to be my own boss in the near future I spin yarn, weave, knit, crochet and I've been learning to sew and make garments.
Hi everyone, I'm Sarah, I hit my late thirties, said 'sod it!', and now my hair is nearing five years of knottiness. I live in mid Northumberland (NE England), and I'm a self-employed artist/potter/professional re-enactor/extra/just trying to find my way in the world with a family in tow.
Hello, Im Stefan from Essex, UK, 30 years old, married, two kids (8 year old daughter & 2 year old son). Work for the NHS and im a little obsessed with houmous right now Stopped brushing my hair 16 months ago and I think its looking quite lovely so far.
I'm new both to the forum and to my dreadlock journey. I'm just over 4 months in, and learning to love the lumps, bumps, and loops...
I'm a data engineer for a behavioral health company here in Phoenix, Arizona (US) and I am the mother of rambunctious twin 5 year old boys, an 8 year old Sulcata tortoise, 7 year old Siamese, and (almost) 2 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy.
As for my chocolate? Dark stays out, milk stays in the fridge (especially during our hot AZ summers), and peanut butter cups go in the freezer.

CHESH-guest computer: anna conditioner helps but it is a lot of work no matter how you go about undoing them. Coconut oil helped when I had to redo mine

anna: We need help! My daughter has dreadlock or mostly matted hair type dreadlocks from not brushing her brush. Can anyone help us figure out how to take them out? We have been using baby powder to rub the hair around to loosen it up.

SketchyMagpie: I'd suggest reading our FAQ as dreads coming loose is very normal in the early stages.

SketchyMagpie: Hey Danny. Depending on your hair type, you might need a few more inches. I started from short hair with 2 sets of dreads and they didn't stay in until my hair was 5 inches long

@DreadlocksCo: You can get relatively instant dreads by crocheting them.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.
