hellloooooo :) (does this even belong here?)


Introduce Yourself

heyyy, as nasty as it may be, i totally do the same thing!! i've kinda always had habits like that, nail biting, skin picking, hair pulling, split end picking, i could go on, so i think the twisting is just an extension of that. i thought you were gonna say the old snap a rubber band thing lol, which i've tried to no avail. i also have a spinning ring on my thumb, which is fine to fidget with but doesn't help at all with the twisting. i have tons of bracelets that i wear all the time and fidget with constantly, doesn't make a difference. i just can't stop. it's impossible. i'm destined to lose the ends of my dreads every few months for the rest of my life!! lol (not funny at all)

i have to try some things to keep my hands busy too, as i have a bad habit of picking the skin near the side of my thumb nails (nasty i know). I've picked at my thumbs for so long i have desensitized the area and don't even feel myself doing it most of the time. One thing you could try is to keep something on your wrist like an elastic band or something and play with that when you find yourself twisting. Alternatively you could turn a ring over so the gem is facing the palm of your hand and play with that? Oh and HHIII!

I actually do wire wraps, I have a wrapped crystal in my head and a bunch of locs that have wraps with beads and stuff all i them :) unfortunately I just lost basically everything I own due to crappy people so. No more crystals in my life. I had a pretty wonderful collection too :/

I really do need any sort of suggestions on things to do to keep me from twisting though, it's kind of a serious problem...

Introduce Yourself

You sent me a chat thingy but mt tablet is stupid and doesn't want me to chat lol :/ I don't believe we've met, though aren't we all aquainted in a way... :)

Yes. Waxy indeed. Waxy and worked on by my silly ex, who believed that daily furious backcombing was the ultimate way to great dreads... which was all gravy until all my dreads fell apart and I had an inch of hair left. The first set he would wax so much that I had to sleep with them covered and they got all linty and gross. And the second set I did on my own, semi waxy, but ostly just a hurried, impatient mess. The trial and error was helpful though, four years into this set I finally have what I always wanted, no wax and no combs required.

My only issue ow is the compulsive twisting that I just can't stop no matter what I do, I'm so bad with it that I get weak spots and if I don't sew them up they break off. I know it's horrible but I just can't stop, can't keep my hands out of my hair, and the worst part is I'm always doing it to the weak spots, telling myself it helps but knowing it's the culprit of the issue. I'm kinda crazy, compulsive for sure, maybe I need to find something else to do with my hands but I just can't stop touching themmmm. And touching leads to twisting. And twisting leads to breaking. Almost all of my original locs are gone!!

Introduce Yourself

Am I a d-bag noob posting in the wrong forum or what?

Well. Anyhow.

I just signed up here, cuz well, I'm lame and need more people to talk to. Soooo hello!! My headnoodles just passed their fourth birthday last month and are more awesome than I ever thought possible (being on my third round of dreads and having had some reeeeally terrible sets in the past). Childbearing (I mean, prenatal vitamins) does wonders for the hairs!! My head has been called a mini thrift shop, full of the randomest little treasures made of all types of metals, wood, glass, stone, string, and aything else interesting or sentimental that I can find a way to stick in my head. New things are added more or less weekly!! Natural has proven to be the way for me, but I'm still working out some minor is (no pun intended lol) so I thought perhaps this is the place to be.

I could ramble forever but let's not do that hmm. Just a little intro. :)

Say hi to meeeee!!!!

Does rasta/rastas mean dreads?


General Talk

That's awkward. I always refer to the old saying, "not every dread is a rasta.. not every rasta is a dread." Doesn't get much more true than that. I guess spanish people don't agree though.

Does rasta/rastas mean dreads?


General Talk

Are you using that as a pun? Rasta rejects isms and schisms, they are the opposite of inity(unity). Of course the topic of this thread, so far as I've seen, is just people deciding that dreads are synonymous with rasta, or wanting people who google rasta to see their dreads. Orrrr just plain posers lol.

hey everybody! Let's discuss...shampoo!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Just saying, I pretty much use any shampoo that's in the shower. I still love a lot of the shampoos that I used before I had dreads, herbal essences, organix, paul mitchell, aaaand yeah. Basically anything that's not too cheap and residual. Never had any problems.

I used dreadheadhq when they were babies but I never noticed a difference, and one day my daughter decided it'd make a fine bubble bath so that's what she did with the entire bottle. I just can't convince myself to pay out the ass for super expensive dread shampoos that don't seem to make a difference.
