3 Month Dreadiversary

Happy 3rd Month Dreadiversary to Me!!!
3 month dreadiversary back
It’s the month of spooks and frights, of tricks and treats! October is my favorite month…and it just so happens to be my scariest month yet for my dreadies, lol. Check out their progress this month.
I’m just going to put my dreadie pictures in order this time, so you can see the progression of them this month. That is all.

A couple wraps.

What a difference wash day makes!
Before and After

Loopies…it’s all part of the process.

More wraps…more frizz.

A Jack bead clipped into the matted end of my dread…and my outrageous roots.

Dark makeup and a bangs poof.

On days like this…when I am sick, it’s nice that my hair still looks…well, like it always looks, lol. No styling necessary.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE dreadlocks?

On this occasion, my goal was to look more like a grown up…I had to take my girls to the dentist.
I opted for a fun knotty updo.
You grab your hair, two sections at a time, tie them in a knot, grab more hair into the two sections and tie them into a knot. You repeat this process starting at the top and working your way down until you’re pretty much outta hair to grab. Tuck the ends in underneath and pin them so they don’t fall out. It took about 45 seconds. I also braided my bangs off to the side and pinned them back with the dreads as well.

This was my favorite loopy that day. It’s the same one, just the side, then the top view of it.

Updo’s.

It never fails, it’s always strange seeing them from behind.

And then on the 24th, I added a few more wraps.
The wraps are actually for necessity’s sake. They hold my 8”+ long undreaded roots together.

This will make it so the roots don’t dread into 2 or more separate dreads that share a common end. That would be no bueno.

They do make me happy with their cheery colors though.

These roots are actually starting to tighten and lock.

And then the crazy hair days…which, as I’ve said before…will happen regardless if you have dreads or not.

And the day we started putting up skirting around our RV. My dread bun was rockin’…I even caught it’s silhouette.

And on this day, I celebrate my 3 Month Dreadiversary!!! I love my babies!
