2 Month Dreadiversary

Happy 2nd Month Dreadiversary to Me!!!
Back of Dreadies 2mo
Here is the 2nd month of my Dreadlock Journey…the good, the bad, and the ugly.
But always…the REAL.

Reality: Before and After washing (plus makeup, lol).

Reality: My FIRST loopies are forming!!! There will soon be MANY more.

Reality: Hours spent blunting my ends…just to have them fall out back into wispy ends. What a waste.
Their ends before I attempted blunting.

It was cool while it lasted though.

Reality: I get bored easily. Dyeing my bangs green seemed like a good remedy for that.
It was my Anniversary present to myself for being tobacco/nicotine/vaping-free for 1 year on September 10th.
I used sugar-free Kool-Aid…2 blues, 1 yellow, 2 greens. Mixed with conditioner. Applied and left on for 8 hours.
I am not even kidding.

Reality: Roots loosen before they begin to lock.
Reality: Fishtail braided dreads are adorably curly once they’re removed from the braid.

Reality: Crazy updo hair days happen.
Another Reality: Crazy updo hair days happen regardless if you have dreadlocks or not…so just go with it and forgive your locs.

Reality: 8 Year old girls make the best dread separators/maintainers.
I’m one seriously lucky Mama. This is my view when my hair is flipped over and she’s separating away.
We only separate 2x/wk. After wash day.
Yes, I wash my dreads. The other days I just put them up outta the way to shower.
Reality: My bangs are not long enough to be dreaded still. I brushed this out immediately.
I couldn’t get it to stay down either, lol.
Reality: I love wash day dreads better than non-wash day dreads.
These are wild, non-wash day dreadies.

Reality: Wraps are harder to do if you wrap them a million times…
…they are much easier to do if you just braid them using the actual dread and 2 pieces of embroidery floss.
Another Reality: ROCKS for boho tube headbands…they hide crazy roots super well!
Yet Another Reality: Dreads are so much more fun with baubles in them (from Michael’s 2 years ago).

Reality: Knitting a Tam is fun and super easy!
I made up my own design…but here’s a great one you can try!
