Anonymous asked: What are some things you would tell someone wanting dreads for the first time? What are some things you know now(about maintenance etc) that you wish you knew in the beginning? Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day ~

Hey! For me, my ‘dreadlocks journey’ has been very simple, freeforming all the way without going to the hairdresser. I think people put too much thought into the process… The main thing is just to be patient. I use the crochet method but very lightly and maybe once every 2months, just to tame the new growth a bit. But I don’t do it very often or too tight as it breaks my hair. The one thing I wish I had known beforehand was to not tie my hair with a hairband! They really thin out your hair if its too tight. The best way to tie up your hair is with a piece of fabric or a headwrap. Never tie it tightly! Apart from that, just enjoy it (^_^) I knew my hair was locking when it started getting heavier everytime I washed it. Also people ask me if I wash my dreads and how often. I wash my hair all the time and swim at the beach at least 3times a week. I just make sure I part it after getting it wet to give it direction. I also dont tie my hair when I sleep to give it time and room to matt and do its thing. I do not use any products in my hair, just mild organic shampoo. I do not use conditioner or moisturisers. I eat well, swim in sea water and bask in the sunshine instead. It works for me and works well for my hair (^_^)

Good luck with your journey and enjoy! Peace n’ Love Xx

A lot of people… tell me I’m a bit… dreamy. But I like the idea of that. Of being somewhere else.

The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.
