How


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

How long have you been letting it go? Are you going the neglect route? I am 4 months in, so still early, but it just came with time for me. There were a couple weeks there where I basically sat on my hands at night, or put them in a fist. Now, I don't even worry about it. Time!

General Talk

Okay, I know that this is not the most PC/all natural response, & certainly it will bring up argumentative responses, but please just get Frontline. I know that the downside is that you are practically dosing your dog in chemicals, but honestly, he must be miserable. :( I am not sure where you live in the country, but I live in Colorado where we have prairie dogs & have recently (like the last few weeks) had fleas test positive for the Plague. Recently, a dog- 2.5 year old neutered male- died of the Plague here. Before he died, he transmitted it to two other cats - who died- & I believe 5 people- who lived. The prairie dog carries the Plague, the flea bites a prairie dog & gets the Plague - then jumps on your animals. That is worst case scenario. Otherwise, he could become very anemic if the infestation is as bad as it sounds, & gosh it must be uncomfortable. Just get Frontline! Stop using it when it gets colder out. I am a vet tech at a local animal shelter, & am all about homeopathic options if they make sense. Maybe use something homeopathic once you have it under control. I don't know, this is just my advice. Best of luck! Love & light to you & your furr children.

Washing more frequently okay?


General Questions

Wash as much as you want as long as you are letting it dry before you go to bed. The more mature your dreads get, the less you'll be able to wash it, so take advantage now. The water & movement will help with knottiness too. Maybe try a shampoo specifically made for dreadies if it's in the budget.

In need of patience


Introduce Yourself

LOL, Soaring Eagle. :) I do work at a very liberal place, but still I'm not sure I want to be glowing yellow. :):) I think maybe next year at this time, I will have to wear a cap to be safe.

In need of patience


Introduce Yourself

I am about 13 weeks in the neglect journey. I am finding that there are multiple small dreads on the underside of my head, around my neck.. I have to separate them regularly now, so I know that once the dreadlings on the top of my head mature a bit, they will absolutely pick up speed. This week, I am feeling a little impatient. Looking at my hair, it just looks the same has it has for probably 1.5 months now. Sometimes I think my hair would be a perfect candidate for TnR, but I am already committed to my journey. & while TnR dreads are beautiful, I think I'd be annoyed at myself since I am already 3 months in. I am a veterinary technician at an animal shelter, we have a huge ringworm outbreak right now. It's awful, so I am washing my hair every evening (it is so early on that my head dries before I go to bed). Not sure how I will handle this scenario when they are more mature.. maybe a cap at work? Anyway, I am just seeking a dose of patience! Love & Light.

I have a job interview, and I have no idea what to do with this.


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I think just a nice thick head band wrap like SE is talking about. You could use bobby pins to pin the rest if you'd like. I also agree if you can remove or hide the piercing for the initial interview. I think being nervous for a job interview is completely normal, but the truth is I believe the moment you both start talking you know almost RIGHT away whether you & the company are compatible. If it's working, feel free to interview her/him back- ask where they stand with individual freedom in regards to body art, hair, so on. If it's not an instant click, then try not to over think it too much-- there's a reason & something else will come along the way. Good vibes your way :)

Need help with 2 month old dreads please


Help! Save My Dreads

No, don't shave or crochet! I am only 11 weeks into my neglect journey but can answer somes things based off of what SE has discussed on here.

I believe most TnR will unravel. It just acts as a foundation- some may stay, but some may undo & it's just patience involved. Your dreadlings are still super young so they are going to be wild & rebellious with loose hairs, undone TnR, & so on. I think the key is patience.

I would try maybe getting some of Vicki's shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com.

Good luck, love & light.
