My 4 year Olds dreadsĀ 

My daughter aliyah is a hippie at heart. Loves the outside, would rather be outside than inside, doesn’t like to wear clothes or shoes,  and loves dreads! 

She kept asking me if she could have dreads and I hesitated because of how many people would see her as “dirty.” so I waited a few months and then she asked again. So I said yes and dreaded her hair! 

 so its been great having her hair dreaded, and she loves it. She is also in preschool and I told her teacher that she wanted them and the teacher was really supportive. 

Well aliyah gets off her bus last week and tells me that her teacher checked her hair. I was like “oh! Cool. So did they do the other kids hair too?”  she said nope just mine. So I got a little offended. Did they check her just because she has dreads? Or was she scratching and they got worried? I guess I will find out when I see the teacher this week. 


My love for dreads

About 3 years ago, I realized how much I hated my straight hair. I couldn’t do anything with it or curl it because it did what it wanted! So I started doing research on different hair styles and dreadlocks popped up! So I did my research….ALWAYS do your research! So I brought it up to my mom and she said she hated the idea. So then I got to thinking what if I made dreads that you can stick in your hair! Now that’s where double ended,single ended, extensions that kinda thing come in! I watched tons of Youtube videos and googled my ass off! I got to work making my double ended dreadlocks and I braided them in. Then showed my mom. My mom wasn’t thrilled but it was a win since I could just unbraid them to get them out.  After about a year later my mom looked at me and said, You should just dread your own hair.  It would look a lot better I think.

I immediately freaked out and went home and started dreading my hair! 

I have a huge love for dreads. I make synthetic, wool, and real hair dreads. I also dread sets of dreads, and attach and detach extensions .  I will include a picture of my almost 3 year dreads!
