You can dye your hair with spices and herbs that you find out in your garden or in your cupboard. I tried this natural dye because I was using these spices to dyes some fabrics.  The rosemary rinse I have been doing all of these years have given my Freeform Dreadlocks red tint to them and the color get deeper each year.   The paprika,tumeric and cinnamon gave a bit of vibrancy when looking at my dreads through the sun.

Natural hair dyes are the way for me.  I spent countless years frying the crap out of my hair.  After about 7yrs of not using chemical dyes my dreads are happier and healthier than they have ever been.
Thank you all for your support and loving words.

I refuse to deny my self of being my own creative individual thinking soul that cares more about mother nature and the fate of this planet.  I realized it starts with the self and loving who you are for what you are.  Growing and sharing the knowledge that I find may be helpful to others is important to me.
Hello Everyone,
Thank you stopping by to see what is going on within my Freeform Dreadlocks Journey.  It has been a long and joyous journey.  Full of lessons I have learned about society's view upon someone who is not uniform and conforming in their ways.  I am the non conformist.  I was born that way and I fully embrace it,   I recently posted three videos on my youtube channel.  One is a tutorial on how I wear my Freeform Dreadlocks in bantu knots before going into the shower so as not to get them wet.

The other one is about removing thick heavy substances from you dreads like wax,or other heavy oils.

The other is answering a viewer's question on if it is alright for him the freeform dread if he has his head shaved on the sides and back of his head.

I hope you are doing what you love and being your authentic selves in every moment of your day.

Warm Regards
Trina Sandress

Hello Everyone who come to my humble little blog.  I have decided to dedicate some more time to this particular blog.  I feel the need to share all of the beauty and freedom I feel from letting my locks do as they wish.  My dreadlocks have grown and evolved within the almost 17yrs.  that I have had them.  And I would have to say that they keep getting healthier and healthier every year.

Here is a few photos of how they are now. At the root of my dreads I can feel a strength and wisdom like that of a tree.  With each passing year I too become wiser like an ancient tree.  I accept new knowledge into my mind,body and soul . Mother Nature definitely knows best.

I hope you all are enjoying the spring season.

Apology From The Heart

Hello all my beautiful friends.  I wanted to share with you today some videos I have recently created in order to offer up an apology for a beautiful soul that I hurt,made confused,angry,and distrustful of me as a person.  I wanted things to be the way my perceptions thought things should be and I was wrong.  Because in the process of wanting a situation a certain I lost a very important genuine authentic being in my world.

I still care about this person and really wish the best for the caring and loving soul and hope that one day this person can forgive me.  I go into much more detail in my videos. So I hope you enjoy it and learn a lesson or two as I have.  I know that this is a very important lesson this special one has taught me and I would be foolish not to learn anything from our experience.

I know that when I stop learning from what life presents before me I will be stuck in fear and regret.
Life is,to me,about taking chances,letting others make their own decisions on their life's path,and giving people respect and having empathy for what others are going through. I thought that I was doing the right thing but I pushed my wishes and desires of what I could see the situation to be and that was totally and completely wrong.

Who am I to say what someone should or could do within their own individual life path?  I am truly grateful to have met this beautiful soul and I am eternally grateful for meeting this person.  Such bright illuminated soul should be allowed respect and room to be their authentic self.

I realized that I was being controlling.  I wanting things my way or no way at all.  That is not the way to go for me in order to be a better person I am going to learn from this lesson and meditate for forgiveness.

This person was nothing but supportive of my life's choices and appreciated me to the fullest. I became hurt,confused,frustrated,angry,and sad.  A change occured and I could not handle it at the time.  I began to process things in a distorted manner.  I usually take time out to access the situation before just spouting off hurtful words.  And then I sent mixed messages that caused a whole new perception to that awesome person I hurt so deeply of who I am as a person.

I thought about how hurt this person must feel.  And I have been thinking about it day by day.  It makes me cry and feel disgusted with how I treated this person. This bright soul was always nothing but respectful of my life and supportive of whatever decisions I made within my life.

I have many more lessons to learn I am sure.  The important thing for me to do is to really truly listen,hear and feel what is going on and not to get trapped into thinking that I can change and manipulate someone else's life path to suit my needs.

To that special person, if you are listening, please,please forgive me. If you ever want to contact me again and be friends I am open.  I will be honest,open,and always supportive in whatever decisions you make in your life and listen to you with an open heart. I wish you and your family peace,harmony,and abundance!  Brightest Blessings always and forever, Trina :)
