Threw away my comb on July 1st 2016, I really was trying to wait to get a decent camera before posting pictures but Ive noticed notable changes that I want to document.
I still don't have anyone to help me separate so I struggle with the back of my head.

Straight hair in dreams.....nightmare!


General Talk

I liked reading those stories.
I was wondering (assumed I wasnt alone) if other people have strange dreams like this.
A few weeks ago I had a dream that I was showering and washing my hair, my dreads seemed a lot more mature than they are now but when I was washing them one (at least 2/3rds of it) just pulled out of my scalp with no resistance. I was trying to reattach it unsuccessfully lol.

Woke up in such a panic its strange how our brains will make us dream about stuff like that.
I wonder if its my brain telling me its afraid of unintentionally losing them, it happened only a few days after I had an African lady tell me she would "cut them off herself" if she ever saw me again....smh.

Dealing with Criticism


General Questions

Just have to remember whats right for us isnt right for everyone else.
Opinions are like  assholes, everyone has one and they all stink eh?

Ive come to understand people who hate dreads dont know much about them in the first place.
They assume dreads=low life drug user or dirty bummy hippy.
Need to explain to them dreads are the natural state of human hair, and they are the ones who are actually strange for spending so much excess money/time trying to fit the "normal" standard made by humans.

Its all love from me but sometimes I wonder, did theses peoples parents ever told them "If you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all.

Is it normal for only like half of your head to be dreaded by 11 months if you are doing freeform/natural/neglect?


General Questions

yeah, from what I understand it can take up to two years for most/all of your hair to end up in dreads.
I personally started on July 4th, what has formed mostly seemed to be around the edges of my hair. Along my forehead, along back of neck, around ears etc it like makes a circle around my head but most of the "crown" of my head doesnt seem to want to dread as easily. Im sure it will just take more time/patience.

How to use Vicki's just for dreads shampoo


Dread Maintenance

I was just coming to ask pretty much the same thing.
How often should I be using it?

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

How big is too big?
I know Ive heard "its all about what you like and if you like how it looks it doesnt matter"
I can only imagine a lock that in a 3inch by 3inch (heaven forbid) section would be near miserable to try drying.
Also I could imagine at that point you may end up getting "tugging" making it uncomfortable because its pulling at your scalp.

If thats the case is 1 inch okay? My friend is a licensed cosmetologist, I was thinking maybe once a month going to her and having her make sure nothing is locking in larger than a 1 to 1 1/2 inch sections.
Just to clarify all she would do is separate them by hand if they are getting too large, nothing else.

Washing


Dread Maintenance

When you say you are washing it once a week do you mean with shampoo once a week, or only once a week in total.
My hair didnt really start to lock up until I stopped using shampoo completely and washed my hair with water every day before I left my house.
I havnt noticed any sweaty smell.
Water, air dry, profit?

Starting out?


Introduce Yourself

ty jumli:

Hey it's my 2nd day . I have no idea what should I do . Just washing with water no shampoo , towel rubbing n using salt water. 



No towel rubbing brotherman, only let it air dry or shake the water out.
It can/will stop your hair or reverse any dreading that has occurred.
Towels shouldn't touch your hair when you're dreading.

A day with the ocean

yea i tell ppl if they are going to use sea salt use it about as often as the average person gets to the beach..which typically isn't very often


This leads me to a question how often exactly would you recommend using a sea salt spray if one decides to use it?

I'm curious also now, because I live very close to the beach and go quite often.
