I have always loved the look of dreadlocks…

Certain things just catch my eye…and they are usually things that everyone else deems “odd!”  Quite to the contrary I LOVE the uniqueness of it all.  I love that no one else could have them exactly the way I have them.  They are my own…

After almost a year and a half of debating on whether or not I should get my own set of beautiful dreadlocks, I finally came to the conclusion that you truly only get to live once.  I don’t want to live with “I wish I would have.”  My entire existance is just a mere spec in the history of time.  And the best part about hair is that it grows back!  So, after much debate I decided there wasn’t a good valid reason of why I shouldn’t try something that I have wanted to for a very long time!

Here are some before and after photos…

    Hi. Love to find more dready people. Congrats. You have many sleepless nights of tossing those dreads this way or that to look forward to. And also moments where you think, ” I love this hair in a new way”.
    They are lovely. 🙂

    Thank you so very much! I love having them and watching them change and grow on a daily basis! They have truly helped define me as the person I have always envisioned myself to be. They are my own…as unique as I am! 🙂

    I welcome anyone to chime in! I don’t know where this blog is headed but I’m sure it will evolve as much as I do! I love the support and encouragement. Thank you all so very much for visiting my creation!
