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.

@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.

rye: hi.. newbie on locks. I have 2 weeks locks but its not extension , just want to ask if it ok to do bath everyday and shampoo my dreads everyday

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

Dreadlocks Co.: Anyone thought of becoming a dreadloctician fulltime? I found some awesome courses on getting certified at http://divinedreadlocks.com/

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
