Just Completed My First Full Head Of Dreads – #jata #dreadlocks

So this dude came into Global Cafe with his natty dreads and I, on the spare of the moment, piped up n asked him if I could please tidy up his locks, the appreciation would be all mine n I’d do it for free. He said yes n today, couple weeks after meeting him, he gave me his natty dreads as my very first step on this journey.

What an amazing day, spending the time with a like minded spirit, sharing my infant skill which towards the end of the session, I was feeling moments of confidence growing in technique.  We chatted philosophicaly, spiritually, I shared yoga tips and he shared music passions, he talked about his wonderful parents and I talked about my wonderful children.  Sitting in the garden, a warm sunny day n we in the shade on the veranda, drinking tea and listening to tunes. My dogs strolling in and out and one cheekily helping herself to his lap … and of all these moments I Jata locked into his dreads. My first experience of locking someone else’s hair couldn’t have been more perfect.

Took me just over 2 hours to tidy up what was quite a messy head different thicknesses and lengths.  Unfortunately one section is so badly matted that I will need to seek the advice of my inspiration, Jamie Webb.

The muscles in my hands are sore so will stretch them out a few times today and over the next few days.

My first client was very very pleased with the tidy up, his words …”Oh yeah! Now they look like proper dreads” ….. best compliment ever!

So who’s next?

Love peace & happineas
