    Day one! Just got twisted up,

    and I must say, I look forward to hitting that one month mark. But even as my excitement bubbles over, I'm so nervous. I mean, I'm definitely excited to finally be going for it. But I still can't help but have that "oh man...new hair do...man I'll get laughed at" reaction...

    The Process, And Day 1

    A few days ago, I had someone come and "section" my hair. It was royally jacked up! I ended up losing so much hair because some idiot used regular, big rubber bands on my long, curly hair. Dumbass! But anyway, I redid it, and was somewhat satisfied with it. I dreaded my hair all...

    Day nine and still counting!

    !! I had to get them retwisted a bit early tho....I'm considering having an actual pro do them instead of my sister. I mean, I'm grateful and all, but I hate how I have to damn near break her arm just to get her to do what she herself volunteered to do. Anybody else have this...

    I'll cut right to the chase,

    folks. I'm a bit down. I mean, I just got twisted up last tuesday(again...I know), and I'm already getting the "man...this will take a while" thoughts. I'm at the much hated ugly stage(I got twisted at just over 2 inches.). I'm not quitting or anything, it'd just be nice if a...

    Haven't Started Yet, But...

    I haven't dreaded my hair yet, but hopefully I will be starting next week. I want to make a dreadlock journey timeline with photos and such, so I'll probably be sharing that on facebook or youtube, or somewhere. And I'm quite sure I'll be writing about it here. I'm also certain...

    Once Week

    So actually two days ago made one week since I've dreaded my hair. I made a video so I'll share that here too in this post. I'll be documenting my journey here, in videos, and in images since so many people want to know how they are doing. And I think it's helpful to others just...
