Freeform dreads unraveling?


General Questions

So far I've been freeforming my hair for a month and a half. They were getting pretty tight but 2 days ago i washed my hair with bs as usual, but i always have a bit of trouble getting it out all the way. So what i did and have done before was sprayed my scalp really good on like full blast. Anyway after i got out and dried them ( I blow dry by the way ) i shook my head and they felt really light. I felt them and noticed they were kinda loose, not really unraveling but they felt really soft and weak. I was wondering if this is a normal stage dreadlocks go through, or was it possibly cause i sprayed my head so roughly. After i slept on it they felt more firm, but not like they were. Is this normal? I've been worrying about it. Thanks

Dandruff Help!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have really bad dandraff, and I wash with baking soda. My scalp is naturally really oily so I only use the acv rinse every other wash or so. When I start itching my scalp it gets super oily, so I try not to. I was wondering if when you rinss, if the dandraff rinses out too. Because when my hair dries the dandraffs pretty much in the same place, and I have like patches. Idk what to do about it and its really annoying.

All the right reasons


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Wow man thats horrible. People can be so close minded and conformed to whats the "norm" in modern society that in a sense their really not themselves. Today, being unique is frowned apon, and its really sad that people are afraid of being their true selves to "fit in" or please other people. I broke free from that chain a long time ago. OPEN YOUR EYES HUMANS! They wonder why im anti-social. Anyway, best of wishes to everyone. Stay strong

All the right reasons


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Nearly all my life, my families been supportive in almost everything I've done, and i am very grateful for that. Some people don't ever have that privilege, so i know im blessed. But lately, they haven't been so happy about my choices. Ever since i wanted dreads, i knew this would be a issue. So it started off while in the car. I forget how this conversation started, but it ended up about my hair. Mostly my mom and grandma, started taking about the way i presented myself, and about how im told how handsome i am all the time. This is literally the reason they think im freeforming. To try and degrade myself. Talking about how every time they see me it looks like i just got out of bed, and how that makes me look dirty. When in the end im doing the total opposite. Im trying to live a more healthy and natural lifestyle, and find myself, who i am. There's a lot of family issues going on in my life right now and i need a way to break away from the hate, but i get more instead. Its really frustrating to me. And i try explaining to everyone, but they never listen. Everyone always thinks their right and never looks at it from someone else's perspective. Its so funny to me that society teaches you to never think for yourself, to always see one way ,what they say goes, and if its not like that, then your frowned apon. But, all in all, im not doing this for what anyone else thinks. Im doing it for me, and if they don't see me for what i amon the inside, so be it. This is the real me, and not to be rude at all but if you don't like me for who i am your not worth my time.
