I'm a pretty lucky gal to have a husband who enjoys my delving into creative new things. His is the only opinion that matters, and he likes them, and "gets" me. So, I'm pretty thrilled to finally be sporting these tangled locks. I began them with a mix-match of methods, including back combing, twist and rip, and neglect/natural. Like so many other subjects, youtube is flooded with great tutorials on dreads. I started with this one because her's are my ultimate favorite look:
But, of all the Dread Videos I watched, Chris, from Lazy Dreads has a channel full of videos ranging from how to use various techniques to begin dreads, to maintaining, and a multitude of updates and Question and Answer Videos. He also has a facebook page, where he answers questions daily.
My husband says I should start a new blog called "The Dreaded Wife", but I think I'll just stick to sharing an occasional update here ;)
