crochet dreads discussion and pictures
Thank you for this article, you saved my dreads!
Oh gosh I am addicted to palm rolling. I think its because it gives me something to do instead of picking my scalp...a really bad nervous habit. Won't the dreads get flat if you don't palm roll at least a little? Could someone educate me more on this subject? I'd like to hear others testimonies and see photographs if anyone has any. Thank you
These are synthetic dreads..not real
Soaring Eagle you have put into words my reasons for dreading. I was called to this...its something thta has been very difficult for me to explain..a change with in myself came first. I am the type of person that does not like conflict or like to stand out and I knew dreads would make me stand out and I did keep that in mind however something much more powerful was calling me to continue. I am a very spiritual person and have been trying to get back to being the natural being God created me to be. Thank you for writing this article ..I will be sharing this on my facebook so friends can read. I have had a lot of questions from people and some friends even are sparked to want to dread their hair as well..but I would only want to guide those into it that are going to take them seriously not as a fashion. They are a life dedication
I know this is an old thread from 2009 but I am glad it appeared on the side bar that I should read it...oh the dread spirit must be upon me lol. I must admit there are those days I look in the mirror and although I know its going to take time I still think ugg maybe this was a bad idea, but the thought of not having them is worse then what I am going threw. I started with the natural method and got impatient so then I twist and ripped the front/top half of my head. I am now wondering if I can continue natural for the back or if I screwed up because all that hair is going to want to get caught up in the already started knots. This is the first time I have come forward with my worries because I am hopeful ...but in all honestly I have been secretly worrying. So thank you for this thread.
Good article. I like the idea of the natural aloe. I bet getting some pure aloe juice at the health food store and putting it in a spray bottle w a few drops of vit. e would be good for the dreads. I am going to try it.
Oh man you made me laugh when you got to thelock peppa! Too funny! I agree with Matthew Breen's comment ..you should write a book! Technology is so great these days you could use "Dragon Naturally Speaking" its a program for your PC. You talk to it and it will type out everything out for you. I know you would have a lot of people support you. I would buy a book as well
