Why did I open my Big Mouth?


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

So my hubs hates my dreads. I mean like he doesn't want to touch my hair anymore. WHATEVER I don't worry about it because I love my hair and it makes me feel sexy. My head...my hair. A coworker actually came up to me ..an older woman....and told me shed wish I wasn't doing this to mg hair and I'll regret it. Then I'll have to shave it....she asked me my reason and I told her why and that I liked it and she said and that's your excuse and just laughed and walked away. A minute later my boss sent me an email that said "don't you just love when pp tell u how to liveur life and how. Screw other ppl do what u want and what makes u you. I said thanks and that I expect it because majority of ppl are so used to having everything normal in their own perception they don't know how to accept different. My boss said yeah..ppl are so close minded sometimes. Awesome my boss supports my journey yeah? Anyways some ppl won't want to vet or reasons and our journey but whatever....free urself from all that. That's one good reason right there. Good luck with our momma baby

ACV rinse


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Hey Barrellady! (I feel a little silly) When do you think I shoulddo a bs wash now? Woke up this morning and my hair is all soft and dready anymore "(, I'm so sad, I'm just going to put a head band on and go. WHat do you think will help? Starting all over? Thank you for your help. Have a great day!

the Barrellady said:

Brandy, please don't palm roll your dreads, it has only temporary benefits to the look and long term damage to the locks. As, BeauZay said, the ACV is a rinse only. In case you do not know the measurements, it is 1-2 capfulls of ACV mixed in 5 cups water. Pour over head and rinse, don't leave on for more than 1 minute. If you don't have dreadlock shampoo, use the Baking Soda wash, I have used it for a year now.

Peace

ACV rinse


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Just washed my hair for the first time WITH apple cider vinegar. I have been washing my hair with watered down pantene. Anyways, As my hair is drying from the acv rinse I'm noticing that my hair seems more loose. My really nice pieces are not tight anymore and it doesn't even look like it was lookin' (which was awesome) just like really soft and puffy. :(

How to cope with all the negativity?


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Well I just started last week but already have negative comments. From family mostly...not friends. And family is supposed to tell you the truth right? As lo v as I can keep mine neat I'm gonna keep on truckin. I don't care coz I'm the one who has to fix it everyday and its my hair. I'm sick of trying g to impress everyone else...that's why I started. I love the look so I'm doing for myself. So maybe try to remember why you chose dreads in the first place :)

Heavy Heart :(


Life Issues Facing Dreads

My feelings are hurt so bad today. I started my dread journey last week. Okay, my hair is a little frizzy and all over the place but frankly I just don't care. I'm doing this journey to let go of vanity. I keep my hair nice and neat of course for my job and for my husband. BUT the thing is that my husband disagrees with my journey. I don't think he supports me one bit. He is stereotyping. Oh my gosh this hurts my feelings so badly, but oh well, I have not combed my hair still. For instance this morning while getting ready I made a comment about our puppy needing a bath because of fleas and he said you're going to get fleas in your hair if you don't brush it out or something like that. Also this morning he came home from night shift and I was getting out of the shower, he saw my hair wrapped up in a towel and he dramatically , shockingly said "You WASHED your hair?" I was like yeah of course. :( He has been saying man comments since I TnR my hair but I have been ignoring them until this morning. I have showed him pictures of nicely done dreads on the hottest women I could find online to show him it can be done and still be sexy. I tried to explain to him that I just don't want to worry or have to do my hair everyday anymore. I just want to let it be...anyways I don't know what to do. None of my friends have dreads so they won't understand the ridicule. I just wanted to vent on here and maybe get some good advice to help lift my spirits. Thanks guys for listening.

-Brandy
