Healing Crystal Dread Beads!


Dread Accessories

Awesome! I will check out your etsy site, dear. I am gonna wait a bit (maybe a couple paychecks) before I order anything, but yeah, I'm looking for a neat wrap completely metal/wire free, including crystals of my choice. I have had one girl on etsy make me a wrap similar to a crocheted ring with smaller crystals tied into it. She makes the rings and I just asked her to extend it the length of a finger and about the width of a pencil. My hair isn't dreading yet ( -.-;; patience, young padoine), but I imagine when the pieces do separate they will be pretty small. I will definitely be hitting your shop up with a custom order as soon as I have a little extra funny money.

dread wraps?


Dread Accessories

Also the best beads I have found are on etsy! There is a shop called FlameTouchedGlass that makes incredible hand blown glass dread beads. She even takes custom orders and she let me wait two weeks to pay! Another store I commissioned is PerpetualSunshine111. She makes crochet jewelry and I saw a couple rings with healing gemstones woven in. I asked her to lengthen the ring to the size of a sleeve (about the length of a finger, width of a pencil) and use rainbow yarn with turquoise and prehnite attached. She made a beautiful piece for me for twenty bucks, and also told me she could wait for payment. I also am interested in making my own beads with polymer clay or something as simple as homemade salt dough. You can google for a recipe for the dough, shape, bake, and paint your own beads.

dread wraps?


Dread Accessories

If you need your hair to dread more try the criss cross wrap, it leaves more room for the hair to move and will allow the hair to dry a bit faster. If you haven't got any matted hair yet, go for some beads to get the dreads going more. I used shell beads last night they are small so they fit in my unlocked hair well.

Do early wraps help lock your hair? and other wrap concerns...


Dread Accessories

Happily I was informed that beading early on can greatly help hair lock up. I have seen people say that you can wrap some pieces early on, but I'm wondering how much a wrap will effect the locking of the strands it holds. Anyone here wrap their hair in the first week, and how can it effect the locking process? What's your experience with wrapping techniques, and what do you find is the best way to make pretty and lasting wraps? Is there any particular material that works best, doesn't smell, last the longest, etc.? After wrapping, what dangers do I need to watch for?

Rubbing?


General Questions

Thank you kindly, hair guru! I am gonna resist the urge to touch it! I'm sure the oils on my hands aren't doing much good either. I have jets in my bathtub and when I bathe I let the two jets on either side of my head flow through my hair, it seems to encourage some tangling rather than the water pressure "brushing" out my hair. Do you think I'm overkilling it? I'm certainly trying to mentally cope with letting it just be... my obsessive little monkey fuck brain over excites and wants to help, but mostly it just gets in the way of nature lol.

Rubbing?


General Questions

I have the extreme urge to just rub the sides of my hair in circles under the idea that this will help form knots. Is that a mistake? Is it bad for locking or just ineffective and useless, or will it help my hair lock a bit better?

Alpaca instead of wool?


General Questions

I've read that alpaca is as good as wool for helping locks forms, and that it's far softer to sleep on. Anyone know anything about alpaca compared to wool for locking? Anyone ever use it?

official johnny clean dreadlocks and dread wax debate may 7th 8pm est

Um. LOVE THIS.

soaring eagle said:

well before i can answer a quesyion about the properties of wax i nedd to ask, is all wax wax? im not sure maybe wax can be creame? or gell? or paste? if so and one of those washes out will you buy my stuff if i rename it dread paste?

but before we rename wax we should also look at how its used

wax should be applied near a dread not on the dread, if it touched the dread ofcorse it will build up, but we intended it to just by applied to the air around the dread so anyone that thought dread wax should go in a dread is just dumb
second weneed to look at the amount used since your applying it to air not hair it makes sense yo use only a few molicules at a time, on our site we show you how to measure the proper amount as compared to a hydrogen atom

ofcourse we also must look at the density of air odviosly if you live on a mountain your wannt to use less then if you live at sea level

now ive done alot of experiments including reversing time to see if wax remained in a dread before you put it there and found that wax was not pressent in any dread before the time it was put there



yea im being rediculouse but just shows u when u can redefine the question any way you want the answer doesnt need to make any sence if the question itself becomes flawed

Naturally occurring dreadlocks a concept difficult to grasp


General Talk

Love this, Janice. I always find myself reminding myself that "It is no reflection on anyone else; it is simply where they are at."

Janice said:

Interesting. Thanks for the insights. People are either open minded and ready to accept things at the current point in their journey, or they are not yet ready to do so. It is no reflection on anyone else; it is simply where they are at. I don't believe it is my job to educate others, simply to live my life with love. I will do my best when people confront me with their own ignorance to simply respond in love. Even when I want to hit them over the head with a blunt object.
