03/01/15 05:36:10PM, by General QuestionsSo my first post here was the horror of removing dreadwax done by a "professional". After a PAINFUL and SCARY process, I got my hair back to it once was without cutting it off (thankfully). Afterwards, I've noticed my has changed. In talking with my sister-in-law who is knowledgeable about hair, she commented on how the elasticity was damaged from the process the " professional" had done. My hair was definitely 'whispy' and looked really thin/brittle. It hurt to comb it for a couple weeks (due to scalp damage). So a couple months later, here I am now. My hair feels A LOT better. But my desire to dread has not left me. If I were to pursue it again, I would do completely natural (wash...
03/01/15 02:26:41PM, by Dread ProductsHello my dreadlock comrades, I have been on my neglect journey for almost two years now and I’m still making progress and haven’t quite achieved a head of mature dreads, but at least now it is noticeable that I am doing natural dreads and get a lot of positive feedback from people around me, especially from black women, I look mixed and my hair still has some curly aspect to it, so I always get compliments from older-ish women hahah its awesome. I guess it looks somewhat from the hippie times/ popular hairstyle when they were younger, also some older white women tend to be fascinated by my hair style, I think it has to be the memories.

02/27/15 01:03:15AM, by General TalkHello all! Soooo... I have another show comming up and I thought this time I would also set up a table with some of my jewelry. At the last art show I did there were quite a few folks with dreads, thus I have decided to take my dread beads this time. For a long time now, I have wanted to do some kind of survey to see what types of dread beads/jewelry my fellow dreaded peeps would like to see, but I haven't quite figured out how to gather enough people with dreads in one place to discuss this.... and then I though "Hey.. I'll just ask the folks at dreadlocksite!" So here are a few questions - When you decide to purchase a bead for your dreads, what do you look for? What size do...
02/25/15 08:30:47PM, by Dread MaintenanceK, so my dreads are 5 weeks old now. Coming along pretty well. I have natural curly hair, very curly. Now my dreads are starting to curl. Especially the back lower part ( 6 inch dreads) Is it OK to straighten them with a a straightener? If not is there a good way to do that? I don't really mind them cuz i know its a process but I don't want them to stick that way.
02/25/15 01:03:11AM, by General QuestionsFirst of all, I do NOT have dreadlocks yet. My hair still has to grow 2-3 times its current length in order to really get the process going. Right now I can just cover my ears with it. Now, the problem is that my hair is very thin, dry and brittle. Particularly my front hair is acting in this manner. A few months back I used the baking soda / apple cider vinegar rinsing method 2-3 times a week, but quit it after reading the negative effects and seeing them for myself. Since then I've just washed my hair in plain water and sometimes rinse the coldest possible water through it, at the end of my shower. I've tried to find some online methods to strengthen and moisturize my hair and so...

So much disinfo nowadays.Replies 6

02/19/15 09:55:30PM, by General QuestionsI'm 27 and for the first time in my life I am growing out my facial hair. Now real quick, I'd like to review a few of the more common styles of facial hair that is grown around the mouth. #1 Hair gown only on the upper lip is a Moustache. #2 Hair grown on the upper lip and chin, that are connected, is a Goatee. #3 Hair grown on the upper lip and chin, that are not connected, is a Van Dyke. #4 Hair grown in the same fashion as #3 but on the genitals is a Dick Van Dyke. (~.^) *wink So my Van Dyke is currently 2" long. I keep the moustache portion curled on the ends. I have also discovered how AMAZING it feels to comb facial hair. Recently, I have begun to notice that after a day...

Latest BlogsJust read some thing on the internet just now that really just threw me with its crap logic and hate. I'm new to physically wearing dreadlocks but I feel like my hair`s whole life has been waiting for them and for me it's fucking AMAZING having them. Now if this is how I feel about it, then I cannot be the only one. I truly feel like this world is hate filled enough and that if you find some one or even a group of people who "feel you" then it should be taken in as a blessing. Even if the...

Natural Dreadlocks, Why Choose Natural Dreads?So why should you choose natural dreads over salon dreads?
Salon dreads give you instant gratification, but at the cost of severe harm. You look like you have dreads immediately, but actually takes much much longer for them to actually become locked. They use aggressive force in order to force them to look like dreads often damaging the scalp and the hair severely.
Natural dreads on the other hand form organically with more unique personality, your dreads are yours and not like anyone else's. Natural dreads remain strong, healthy and are kept clean. Salons often tell you not to wash your locs for long periods of time. Sometimes his six months. Even the entire first year.
When you're growing natural dreads, it is the washing that makes them dread. Additionally, companies that sell dread kits and products to make growing dreads easier actually make it much harder and ruin your locks. Dreads caked in wax might seem too mature fast, but they are only being glued together in wax and actually take much, much longer. These products designed to hold like wax, especially are very difficult to remove, and can sometimes result in the dreads needing to be cut.
We have become experts at saving dreads that other dreadlocks sites and dread salons have harmed.
If you are experiencing your dreads thinning at the roots, locs breaking off, scratchy rough dreads, heavy dreads from product buildup, we are here to help you restore the health of your precious dreads.
