more dreadlock love

if i had a daughter it would be her! this 15 year old california surfer vegan is just adorable! well, i've begun my dreadlock journey almost 2 weeks ago going the natural route. i'm shampooing with dr. bronner's soap and stopped brushing. it's that simple! my hair is beginning to separate itself and looking tangled, but patience is the key. contrary to popular belief, dreads are created over time with clean hair and will lock up on its own if you stop brushing it. that's the healthiest way to go for the hair, rather than backcombing/ teasing it (as this girl did, but they look great). i'm feeling kinda liberated by letting my hair do what it wants. speaking of hair... i've got a dye pot of mohair ready for the rinse! talk soon! xoxo
