Does anybody know if Jarvela's dreads are neglect?


General Talk

I google him and I saw many pics of him with and without dreads and I don't know. I didnt find any "baby dreds" either but they look natural, the ends are the ones that look smooth.

flat pancake looking dreads... coming up 5 months old! :)


Dread Maintenance

Well some of my dreads are flattening so I know how your feel but in your case they are still too young, so you don't even have to put on a bead. Just wash your hair more often if you wish, due to my hair type, most of the hair movement is when I wash it as my ahir type is not the kind to just wave each strand independently with the wind.

So my advice would be to just let them be and if you want to help them move around then wash your hair every other day or at least 3 times per week.

To answer your question, on more mature dreads you could just wrap them with wool or use the sleeve beads to keep a round shape on certain areas.

Coconut Oil...


Dread Products

I have been using ti for a little while but not on rinse or anything like that, I just rub it on my hand and from my hands to the hair.

As you noticed, it gets absorbed by the hair so the oily feeling wont last, but then it will feel soft for a while.

bottle spray with tea tree, lavander, and pepermint essential oils does the trick for me. It leaves my scalp feeling refreshed for a logn while.I use it everyday now.

I need ideas for my one year dreadversary.


Dread Maintenance

Like a permanent marker so i can see the difference on the next year? I have some of the cheap cuff and beds made of metal and plastic and some custom made by Jazz but nothing that could serve that purpose other than the metal cuff but since they are silver and gold like they would stand out hence why i dont wear them anymore.

I need ideas for my one year dreadversary.


Dread Maintenance

Hello everyone, December 9th my dreads will be one year old and I would like to do something special with them, whether it is getting them re-twisted and styled, or stay in the natural road and just wash/separate with some styling other than the regular headband.

10 Months old

These are some links so you can see my hair and help me get ideas of what to do with my hair. I also need to find a way to wear them in a professional environment, and interviews. I don't know if they are long enough to style yet but I want to do something with them.

Dawn soap?


Dread Products

Well I know someone with the longest locs I have seen in person, she trims them often so they dont drag on the floor but they are still past her butt and she is tall. She told me she washes her hair with dawn soap, the blue one. With locs that long, she must of have had them for decades and they are very, very healthy. So if I am to base my answer on that then yes, it is safe to use it. But if you just want organic stuff then that is not the soap for you.

Questions about the dreaded crochet mistake


Dread Maintenance

Even my hair gets very frizzy after I wash it, but a full night of sleep or two fix all the frizz to the scalp

Why no touch?


Dread Maintenance

When I wash my hair, I make sure to make sewwt love to it with my hands, then is like angry sex. Do I progress slower? Maybe, still got loc'd up in less than 5 months. Oh my hair texture <3

I tried the no hands method, I didn't know if I was clean or not. I guess I just like to touch my hair/scalp.
