The Real Story With Pictures …. ☮️

The Real Story With Pictures …. ☮️


Good morning, my lovelies, my beauties, my friends. My name is
Christina and welcome to my
channel. If you are new here, thank you so much for
clicking on this video. I really hope that you will subscribe, stick around and take a chance on
hearing some things that I had to say. And if you are a returning subscriber, y’all already know y’all are my babies. So today I’m going to do a video telling
you guys about why I dreaded my hair and why I have dreadlocks.
This video is highly requested. I get asked all the
time why I have dreads. I have people messaging me all the time
saying that they want to get dreads and it’s just so hard to explain to
people via a message or whatever. But this situation is very
near and dear to my heart. I got dreadlocks for very
deep and spiritual reason. It had nothing to do with a hairstyle. It had nothing to do with status quo
or a fashion statement or anything like that. Um, so yeah, let’s get into it. Now. I do want to start this off
with a little disclaimer. I’m pretty sure I’ll get some
hate on this video. I am expecting it. I hope that I don’t, but
I am expecting it. Um, I want to start off by saying
that before I got my dreads, I never knew about the cultural
appropriation movement, never even heard of it. And maybe I just come from a day in an
era or a time that I’d never even heard of it. I actually got a message from somebody
on Instagram along a while back and the girl was telling me how I should
brush my dreads out because of culture appropriation and all that.
And I had to look it up. I really did not know what it was. Um, now I will say that I respect the
culture appropriation movement because I understand that people are
passionate about their, you know, their cultures and um, things
that they believe that could, has come out of their
culture and all that. And I don’t mean any disrespect
to anybody. Um, I have
respect for all cultures, all ethnicities, all
races, all backgrounds. Um, and I love each and every one of you
guys. Now, I will be honest with you, if I did know about the
culture appropriation movement
before I got my dreads, I would have still got my dreads because
my dreads had nothing to do with, with a culture or anything. It was a deep spiritual thing
between me and God and you know, it had nothing to do
with anybody else. Um, I will also say that if I had to be put
in a category cause we know America, we love to categorize people, I would definitely be put in the
culture appreciation movement because I appreciate every culture for everything. And I think that our world is beautiful
and that we need each culture and each moving part to continue
to be beautiful. So yeah, let’s get into it. Back
in 2014 I hurt my back. I know you guys have heard
me talk about it before. I won’t go too deep into that, but I will tell you guys that when
I hurt my back, I fell into a deep, dark depression. Now, anybody that’s
ever dealt with chronic pain before, you probably know what I’m talking about.
When you live every day, every second, everything that you do with a pain. I
mean, even if it’s a pain in your elbow, right? A pain that never goes away. A pain that wakes you up in the middle
of the night, you know, it hurts. It hurts when you sit on the toilet,
it hurts when you’re cooking dinner. It hurts. If you sit on a swing, it
hurts. If you’re trying to watch TV, if you’re trying to read a book,
if you’re trying to drive a car, no matter what you’re doing, the pain
never lets up. It hurts all the time. It’s exhausting and it
gets in your head. Okay? I started having the thoughts of my
life is never going to be the same. I’m never going to be able to
do normal things. You know? I’ve always been a very,
very active person. I am the first person to jump on a
swing at the park before my children. You know, I am the mom that goes zip
lining. I work out, I go jogging, I ride bikes. I’m just an active
person. And when I had this back pain, I could not push my son on the swing
without being on the floor for three days crying in pain. And my life
had changed drastically. And when I fell into this depression, I started having a lot of really
sad thoughts about myself. So I won’t get into that either.
But um, looking back at it now, in that time, it was really, really hard. So yes, now before any of this happened, I cannot tell you guys
that I loved myself, that I had a lot of self love,
right? I had a lot of false love, a lot of fake love for myself. You know, I had a lets dye your hair and get your
nails done and your tan done and all this stuff and try to be pretty, try to be what society thinks
that you’re supposed to be. Try to please everybody and make
everybody happy and be happy. But deep down inside, I didn’t have a real connection
with myself like I do today. So I’ll just fast forward to the day that
it was laid on my heart to get dreads. Now, this happened to
be the very first day. This was in 2016 I’ve had my dreads
over two and a half years now. In 2016 the very first day
that my back was not hurting, I was pain-free. I was getting ready
to go to church with my children. I was standing in the bathroom
and I was doing my hair and my makeup and I was so excited because I could
hold my hands up and I was able to do my hair without, you know,
being in excruciating pain. And I spent two hours getting ready to
go to church and I looked in the mirror and when I looked in the mirror, I saw these things in my
hair that looked like dreads. And I thought, Hmm, but I just
ran my fingers through it. I didn’t give it a second
thought other than, wow, that’s what I would look like with
dreads. Never thought of it before. I don’t have any friends that
have dreadlocks. I mean, I do now, but back then I didn’t have any
friends that had dreadlocks. I didn’t know anybody like
that. It wasn’t, you know, I’m a 30 something year old mom, you
know, it’s not like I’m, you know, hanging out at the reggae clubs
or anything. And I’m like, yeah, this will be cool. Let’s get some locks,
dude. It was nothing like that for me. Right? So, um, I remember my son came into the
bathroom and he was like, mommy, come play with me. Come play
with me. And I was like, I’m getting ready for church. And I instantly had this
thought and this like profound, like revelation, like girl
for the last two years, all you’ve been doing is begging God to
get you out of pain so you could play with your son like all you wanted to do. And the very first day
your back is not hurting. You’re spending two hours doing
your hair and getting ready. And I just thought, what am I doing? So I put everything down and I went and
played with my son for 30 minutes before I went to church. Now all this was
building on me, right? I had this deep, dark depression. I had this weird moment where I looked
in the mirror and my hair looks like I had dreads. You know, I spent all this
time getting ready on my very first day, not, you know, not hurting.
My son wanted to play with me. And it was just like all
these things started building. And then I went to church that night
and the pastors sermon was on us being dirt. Now pause. No matter
what your beliefs are, I respect everybody’s beliefs and
I hold my beliefs and my faith near and dear to my heart, right? There is nothing that anybody can say. And there nobody can disagree that
when we all die, we go to dirt, right? Whether you are cremated, whether
you’re put into a casket, whether you, you know, God forbid your, your
body is somewhere, I don’t know. We all have our bodies end up
turning back to dirt, right? And the pastor sermon was about how we
came from dirt and how we will return to dirt. And I was like, and he was
like saying like, We’re nothing but dirt, but how much time do we spend
making our dirt look pretty? How much time did you spend tonight making
sure your dirt looked pretty to come in here and boy, I was like, like what? Like it was like, you was like God was speaking right
to me and I don’t know what it was, but I, the lady that was
sitting next to me, I said, I’m going to dread my hair
up. And she said, what? Because the thing that I
did know was that if I, you know, I stopped brushing my hair
and that if I did all this stuff that, you know, it would be a journey,
like it would be a dreadlock journey. And I just knew that
that’s what I needed to do. Well then after church I told my husband,
I said, I want to dread my hair up. And he was like, what? He was like,
well, whatever makes you happy. Like listen, my family members, some of them
were like, we love you no matter what. But some of them were
like, you’re crazy. I mean, I had people on Facebook telling me, why would you mess up your
beautiful hair like that? And to me that fueled it even
more like it’s not messing it up. I’m making a sacrifice. Like I’m getting ready to make a
sacrifice because I wanted to go through something, right? My dreadlock
journey was a journey to self-love. It was cutting back all the pieces of
myself that I spent so much of my life trying to doctor up and trying to be
beautiful and trying to go to the hair salons and get the right hair and get
the right this and get the right that, and I even went on a no-makeup
stage for a long time. You all pop some pictures up here where
when I was going through my dreadlock journey, I quit wearing makeup too.
I just completely let it all go. I dreaded my hair up. I let it all go.
I quit brushing my hair. I quit dying it quit spending time on it.
I quit putting on makeup. I just focused on getting better on
my children and learning to love me. Learning to love the real me. Learning to love my hair and
appreciate it for what it did. And during my dread lock journey, I paid attention to all the lumps and
bumps and all the crazy things and just appreciated my hair for
what it was doing and, and, and quit focusing on, you know, trying to be beautiful by society’s
standards and look a certain way. And during the time, I mean, I went
through some really ugly phases, but I loved it because it was
teaching me something about myself. It was teaching me that, you know, looking beautiful is not the
most important thing. You know, being a beautiful person is
the most important thing. And going through my dreadlock
journey taught me that. And so when people message me all the
time and say, Oh, I want to do my dreads, I want to get dreads
like yours or whatever, I always tell people it’s a
process because, you know, I didn’t get my dreads
for a fashion statement. I didn’t get them to look a certain
way. They didn’t always look like this. I mean, now people tell me
that my dreads are beautiful, but for a long time they didn’t
look like this. You know, they looked crazy and it was just
deep and it was real and it was raw. And you know, a lot of my friends
that were with me during that time, they know like it was, it was more than a hairstyle and it
still has more than a hairstyle now. I don’t know how long I’m
going to keep my dreads. I may keep them another month, I
may keep them another lifetime, but right now I’m so grateful
for what they have taught me. I’m proud of myself
for going through this. I’m proud of myself for putting my vanity
on the back seat and learning to love myself, all of myself. And that’s what I had to do
to go through that. You know, I’ve had people make
comments on my video of, um, my dreadlock journey
timeline and say, wow. It seems like your confidence has
boosted since you’ve gotten your dreads. It has, it has. And it’s
nothing to do with the hairstyle. People judge me because of my hair. I
mean, some people hate it, you know, but it doesn’t matter because during
that time I did blossom. I did grow, I did, you know, loved, love myself, love myself, not love my blonde streaks and my luscious
blonde curls and my makeup and all that stuff. I learned to love me. Right? Also during that process, I’ve
learned a lot of other things. I’ve learned what it feels like to be
judged by your looks, for no reason. I’ve had a lot of people treat me really
bad because of my hair and you know, it’s opened my eyes to what other people
go through that get judged by the way that they look. And it makes me more empathetic to them
and it makes me understand and it has taught me to see things
even even more differently. I have never been a person that is
judged people by the way they look. I’ve never been like that. I wasn’t
raised with a silver spoon in my mouth. I’m very cultured. I’ve, you know,
lived in all types of environments. So I’ve always just loved and
connected with all types of people. But when I went through my dread lock
journey, and still to this day, I learned on a different level, right?
Because then I was experiencing things, experiencing nasty looks and smart
snarky comments and disgusting DMs and, um, all because of my hair. So, and I don’t say that for anybody to
feel sorry for me by any means. I mean, I made a choice to get my dreads. There’s a lot of people that are judged
by things that they can’t change and they don’t have a choice. And that is incredibly
disappointing and heartbreaking. But I can relate in a
small, small, tiny way. So I hope you guys liked this video
about why I got my dreadlocks. You know, I always say that it was deep. It
was spiritual. It was something, a connection between me and God,
something that I went through. And this is where I’m at and this is
why I got them. And I do love them. Um, they feel like I’m touching a broom. It’s definitely not the kind of here
you’re going to run your fingers through. you know, and but they’re mine
and they mean something. And um, so yeah, I hope you guys liked this video. Let me know what you think
in the comment section below. If you have any questions or anything
like that, I would love to hear from you. And yeah, if you haven’t
already, make sure you subscribe. I love you guys so much and I’ll
see you guys in the next video. Bye.

    You should do an ACV and baking soda rinse and film it. It's a new trend on YouTube for dreadheads to do and it actually cleans them really well. Also invest in an imflatable basin beforehand because it'll save your neck a lot of pain. Lots of love girl! Keep on rockin! 💜💜💜

    This video honestly just further pushed me to get dreads. I’ve been thinking about doing it for a little over a year back and forth.
    And have depression,anxiety and PTSD and when I go into my long term “episodes” I don’t really have the energy to shower or do my hair or my makeup or anything
    I’m only focused on using the little energy I have to raise my son.
    I’ve always thought dreads would be great then I wouldn’t have to worry about all this extra just trying to look good by societies standards
    That and dreads are beautiful
    Love your story

    All hair naturally knots. Your hair, your journey and your energy.
    I would never tell anyone how to wear their hair.
    Your hair doesn't belong to any other culture but your own.
    I also have my personal reason for letting my hair be natural including the grey.

    I stumbled across your channel because you went to prison.
    So did I…
    But I was blown away by this video the most.
    I had two spinal surgeries last year, I've lived in chronic pain since i was 25, I'm now 32.
    Every second, of every day.
    24/7
    365!
    I could see you getting emotional while talking about it.
    It's so hard, it can ruin your life!
    I lost my business, I was a pro boxer for 3 years, but most of all it's robbed me of an active, healthy life and the ability to be the fit mum i want to be.
    My son has been my carer since he was 11. 😔
    I'd sell my soul to have a day where I'm not in pain!

    The dreads are a true spiritual statement that says I don't need to work! more videos should be about your husband who is the reason you don't have to work and can have dread locks. for those who don't have a husband to pay all the bills, dread locks is not an option. So the video is big props to the man!

    Honestly it took me a couple videos listening to what you were saying to get used to you, when I saw this video I decided to subscribe to your channel and click like whenever I watch videos to help you keep making messages like this, not just for women, but a lot of women would really benefit if they had this wisdom. My last relationship fell apart because of the vanity on the other end, I sure wish she would have had an epiphany like you, it's not even about the dreadlocks, they were the vehicle to self-love and I think that's amazing and I appreciate you sharing that with the world

    I only have a problem when people make fun of a style or put it down then wear it and say it looks better on them then the people who made it especially when they dont even know the history

    I have curly hair which if I don't take care naturaly gets tangeled into dreads…and I am white…so what does that mean? I straighten it sometimes because it looks more put together…and sometimes wear it curly…
    I think it is mad that you have to explain what you do with your hair…do what ever you want…much love to you 💕

    I know I’m late to this story, but I have a very similar situation. I was having a really hard time, and I just decided to cut all my hair off into a pixie cut. It’s crazy to think that something like that can change your life, but it absolutely did. Thanks for this video. 🙂

    i'm not trying to be a hater, your reasons are valid. I just wanted to say that the definition of cultural appropriation is taking something from another culture without any respect for it's origins and using it for yourself, which is what you did. You have your reasons however you should understand that it is still appropriation…

    Absolutely wonderful and intriguing explanation of the spiritual connection with identity. No one owns a culture. They are meant to be shared. Be it music, style, culture etc. I appreciate your insight ad openness to identifying and adopting a broad perspective without hindering or otherwise limiting your self-expression. You are a kind spirit. Keep being you and sharing your insights because they are yours and yours alone…

    Cultural Appropriation is just for people to complain!!
    A friend of mine was accused of cultural appropriation and he asked that person..Why are YOU speaking English?

    That person flipped out and said it doesn't apply to whatever White peoples culture..So they can trample on whites ,unreal! But that person was speechless for about 30 seconds lol..

    I know all to well about back pain,it nearly ruined my business!! Still today in pain all the time..How you explained it was exactly like I go through still…I had m.r.i's,specialists…they said I just have to live with it..Surgery would be too risky..I've seen all the experts,tried everything etc..etc..Pain medication is the only thing for me..With that I have mostly a normal life,still in pain but hey….

    **youtube recommended your channel..clicked on it as you look a bit like my wife lol…She works out all the time too..Good Luck,stay calm,happy and stay out of the clinker!!!

    Sweetheart, the spiritual meaning for hair is knowledge, knowledge is strength….knowing that you follow a religion, christianity to be specific, it doesn't surprise me that you had a revelation about binding your hair because you have not been set free from religious bondage yet. There is so much more for you to discover. The binding of your hair while your truth is still alittle twisted..i too was called by God into Christianity, but I didn't find myself there very long before the truth regarding every religion on this earth was revealed to me. Keep moving forward, keep asking the deep question. You are a very bright star! You have much more to teach about! 💛

    Cultural appropriation movement is B.S. and all cultures are NOT equal.  Some cultures emphasize love while other burn people in cages, throw them off buildings, beat women and saw heads off unbelievers.

    Vikings had dread locks. So many cultures do it. I respect the concept of cultural appropriation, it has its time and place for sure. But sometimes it just goes to far! Some things can’t be nailed down to one culture, and thinking all aspects of different cultures need to stay separated is the SAME IDEA behind segregation???

    So in other words dreadlocks are not beautiful, this is an insult to certain people.
