Washing Baby Dreads.


Dread Maintenance

I'm gonna be seeing the guy I like for the first time in a month on Friday. So Thursday I want to wash my hair really well. My dreads vary from back combed dreads that are almost three months old and locking very well, to almost 2 month old natty dreads on top of my head. Their is still a lot of loose hair and they are in a very awkward stage, I want to know how to wash them well with what I have available- baking soda/water/tea tree oil/sea salt/white vinegar and also how I should dry them so they won't be really frizzy or anything like that.

Theattachedpicture is what they look like currently.

When even your family doesn't support you.

Rasta's are supposed to leave them untouched. I became one after I already did my hair though. I tried doing natural, and after 8 months I still had no progress. My hair is the kind that is always super dry and before it was dreaded I could go 2 weeks without brushing and I wouldn't have any tangles.It's uplifting to hear from all of you though. I appreciate everyone's feedback. It means a lot.

Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Recently we had a family get together with some of our closest friends as well. This was only about 4-5 days after I backcombed, so they were very fresh.

The whole weekend all I heard from them was nagging, and when I withdrew from them, they wouldn't leave me alone. It's gotten to a point where it's depressing me. Especially when it comes to my mom. Not only does she complain at me for them, all the time, and how dirty and nasty they are- she also thinks of my religion, as I am a believer in the Rastafari Movement as a joke. I am VERY passionate about my dreads and and my religion and it's difficult when the people I am closest to, don't care for my feelings and how what they're saying truly affects me. :\

Hello, I'm Casey.


Introduce Yourself

I prefer to go by any other name though, Jenks is my favourite. I currently have 11 dreads that are 2 weeks old. They are purple and were formed by the backcombing method; this is also the second time I've dreaded my hair. It's nice to meet everyone and I'm so happy a friend showed me this site. It's definitely changed my mind on using waxes and crocheting.
