My dreads are officially 6 years old and getting long as heck! I probably won’t be updating this site anymore since they aren’t going to change much. Now that they’ve reached my butt I’ll probably be cutting them to keep them that length. I don’t want my hair any longer than that.
I’m still washing with Lush about every 4 days. I usually only wash my scalp, but I’ll wash top to bottom if I feel they need it. It’s not like I roll in the mud or anything, but occasionally they land in my food. I did my first maintenance this year. I’ve been all for natural dreadlocks until I realized the long hairs around my face and back of my neck were never going to dread up and add more frizz than I’d like. So every few months I take bits of hair and crochet them into my dread roots.
