YouTube Gems

Check out some of my favourite YouTube channels above for great info on doulas, parenting, pregnancy, healthy living, and enlightenment. (Sorry: there are some random ones in there that aren't mine, just part of the YouTube advertising unfortunately, however they are easy to spot as they don't fit with the theme of my blog).

Dreadlocks Week 1!!!

Ma Baby Dreads :)

...took about 8 hours of twist and rip method, I prewashed the day before with Dr. Bronner's soap and didn't condition. They went in pretty easy, but man is it hard on the hands!!!

1 Month Before, yes I liked my hair and it looked nice and all but I'm not huge on hair maintenance which is funny since I am a hairdresser haha. Anyways I have always liked the look of dreads and the seemingly low maintenance appeal won over as I was tired of having to constantly make appt.'s to keep my shorter style looking this nice.
Day one (first pic was taken at 3am July 31 2013 when I finally finished, second pic is 6 hours later after sleeping on them).

Day 2 rocking an earthy looking hair tie to downplay the craziness that was baby dreads on day two. They looked squirrelly and medusa like after sleeping on them and having a two year old play with them all night for comfort lol!

Day 3 (lighting is crap at work) as you can see I am liking the tied back look so my medusa locs (my kids call them snake hair) don't get all up in my face.

Day 5 definitely fuzzier but tamed well with a pretty satin ribbon
