dollylocks i think sells wax? but let me tell you about dreadsuk
dreadssuk's owner is the biggest scumbag in the dread workd, worse then jonny clean even...by far
ok so i'll go into full details on this dreadsuk (read it all it gets worse and worse)
i 1st heard of him when he posts a video challenging me to a debate on crochet. he claimed that lazydreads was going to be involved too..i wholeheasrtil;y agreed to it  ((i was very sick for 2 weeks however) when i was better i cv\ould not get him to commit to a date yet he kept posting that i was chickening out and kept saying lazydreads was all in
i later talked to lazydreads (who i definitely respect) he told me that he wanted nothing to do with him cause he tried forcing him to shut down his site and turn over all content when lazy refused he said hed just copy all his material and use it anyway
he then spent months harassing him and attacking his character, till lazy had to get legal help
next he was spasmming the hell out of my groups on fb ..i mean overwhelming spam, 4 posts pushing his shampoo for every 1 legit post in very big busy groups (he does that still in other groups)
i blocked him cause we have a zero spam policy,, oh that is when the shit hit the fan
1st let me explain my living situation i live with my sis bro in law and nephews ..im a quadriplegic in a wheelchair ..the basement i have never been in but its my neophews playroom
now dreadsuk creep (Elijah locke) flooded the web not just fb but other sites with claims that i kidnapped a 14 year old and had her captive in the basement
he had others from his site visciously spam then when they were blocked they did the same.. my own brother got a message from 1 of them claiming i kidnapped her sister!!!! 
i looked into defamation and other legal hel;p and was told just to clean up the mess he caused would cost me 50,000 dollars..just to have the lies removed let alone legal fees to sue him or get a cease and desist order
now on his site before it became just an ad the forums were the front page, with 90% of posts being about sex not dreads
one of the sites he posted lies on (thast comes up 1st when you google my name) had real copmplaints about him from his femasle members he would push them for naked photos then try to get them to join him in a poly relationship living on a bus, if they requested he remove the photos hed ban them and refuse to remove them
now his shampopos are toxic chemical crap but even if they were the best in the world this guys toxicv poision and he will go all out to destroy you for interfering with his profits 
while dreadlockshampoo is hand made and she built up her business from scratch his are factory produced he gotr a massive grant 'princess grant" to statty his business so it cost him nothing to open a factory
hes extremely aggressive in his constant spamming ..and abbsollutely viscouse if you ever try to stop the spam

hes evil..pure scum..i have had to file multipole police reports but were no help
i really feel bad for anyone who gets sucked into his site
oh most posts on dreads are click bate 'worlds ugliest dreads' "nastiest dreads" 
very little in thre way of advice except go to this locticiuan or that loctician (he encourages them to join use his proiducts and in exchange get recommendations) 
in fact ui think 'get professional help' is the limit of his ability to advise..
his forums not for helping but hurting, poking fun at others, or trying to destroy reputsations



That sounds so horrible I even find it hard to believe that someone could truly be such a scumbag of a person. I'm not saying that I don't believe you though, I've already ordered a bottle of their shampoo and if what you're saying is indeed true I already feel bad about ordering it.
Could you please provide me with some links to all that drama? I find it rather fascinating and I'd like to look up into it a bit more if possible. We definitely need to stand up against such atrocius bussines practices and behaviour in general/do everything in our power as a community to prevent it.

General Questions

I will just use this topic for a couple of shampoo questions. So what do you think about Dollylocks and Dreads.uk shampoo? I was using Vicki's liquid shampoos and I'm currently at the last bottle. I'm satisfied but can't order more due to high shipping/customs cost to EU, so I'm searching for a good alternative.

☮ soaring eagle ॐ:

yea id stick with the liquid..the rest i was just making sure you were doing it right... however puling out those hairs might be interfering with progress some so id definitely stop that

Maybe and perhaps also that I wear it up sometimes. Not a whole lot but yes sometimes I have to tie it when working or working out etc.

Dread Maintenance

Thanks to both! Well I'm still using liquid shampoo and I think I plan on using it for another year or so, at least untill my hair is mostly dreaded. I don't think swithing to bars sooner would be a good idea. I also think everything is fine, it just takes a very long time and of course I wasn't used to that before with "generic" hairstyles. You just went to the salon and "bam" you had a hairstyle you wanted in half an hour. But this is something entirely different, I understand it and I'm fine with it. I won't give up, if I managed to put up with my crazy hair for a year, I'll manage another year too.

I'm not towel drying, I'm only using fingertips on my scalp as suggested, however I'm working it into the whole area of the scalp, not just the top of my head. Otherwise my hair would probably remain a bit dirty after washing. I'm using a hair dryer for quite some time after washing because I can't just make a whole appartment wet waiting for my hair to dry all on itself.

About sea salt spray, I have it but I stopped using it because I haven't really noticed much difference and I find it kinda redundant. But perhaps I'll start using it again the same day or a couple hours before washing. I wash once a week and I think that's just ideal. Before I used to wash twice a week but that seemed to make my hair a bit more oily, even tho I don't think that I have a very oily hair or more than usual.

One year + questions


Dread Maintenance

I've not been active here for quite some time because I haven't felt the need to really ask about anything, but now that it's been a year since the beggining of my journey I have some questions again.

First of all, the progress is indeed very slow, most of the people I interact with don't even notice that I'm aiming towards locks, or they just look at me as a guy with a super messy hair. Ok don't really care about others perception that much anymore so that's not really an issue.

I think that it will take at least another year for my hair to look "properly" dreaded and I'm fine with that, it's just really really slow. I'm using Vicki's shampoo, it cleans my hair great. It just seems that my hair gets a bit less dread-like after washing it. For example I was on vacation recently, swimming in the sea every day and my hair became much more like dreads in those 10 days, but after washing it seems like sections don't hold together as tight as before. Well I'm not talking about real dreads, but I only have perhaps 5 of those, everything else are just sections that hold together more or less tightly.

I don't feel like I should already switch to bars and I'm currently at my last bottle of shampoo (ordered 5 bottles last year). So yes I do feel like I'll need another 5 bottles probably in order to get most of my hair dreaded. I attached a couple photos, is my progress extra slow or not?

Another question: I have dandruff. It's not horrible, but it gets visible in the middle section of my head. My hair is also falling out, well this is again probably normal, I don't think I loose more than some normal ammount, but the thing is it gets stuck in dreads and what happens is I get those small white dots (hair roots) that stick out of my dreads lol. I always pull them out and it requires quite some force sometimes.

Third "issue": My hair gets very curly at the ends, so a couple dreads formed which look very strange. I get that big "ball" at the end of the dread where the hair section was very curly. It looks funny and not in a good way lol, the last pic represents this.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

Perhaps a little of topic, but what about nails? I have the same philosophy I only cut them when they really start bothering me, perhaps that could sound strange to some but I love to have long nails also if possible. I mean I'm not mentally attached to them it's the same as with facial hair. I trim all those things when they get really long and don't bother with it too much. It oddly seems that all hair, nails etc. are a part of me and I feel stronger/more confident if they're not missing hehe.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

As far as jobs and career choices we all know it's always gonna be hard for us out there. Yea there are laws etc. but in reality you're always going to be judged and even turned down for some jobs. Of course they won't tell u the reason. We chose that lifestyle and we have to bear the consequnces of this still extremely primitive society almost in the year 2017. I'd even say in a lot of aspects it's more primitive now than it was in certain times of the past.

In America there's probably a bit easier cause a larger % of pupulation, it's way more racially diverse etc. Where I live literally nobody have dreads and they sometimes look at me as a circus animal (even tho only 3 months in the proccess yet). I have to tie my hair for at least 4 hours at work, but luckily I untie it again when I'm alone (I do this type of work I'm alone for let's say 4 hours and other 4 I'm not). People are bothered cause of my looks, they mock me that I look like Jesus or some silly stuff like this would be a bad thing. I don't care it's just not easy to manuever through it on a daily basis. Of course some other people also love it, but those are pretty rare.

As far as job goes I'd advise u to try and keep your beard a little trimmed and not go all out with it. Also don't do piercings and tattoos/big holes in ears etc. I don't judge anyone based on their appearence but majority of people will. I'd say if u have dreads and u do tie them sometimes and a beard that's not extremely long then u have better options. But if u go all out with beard plus piercings/tattoos then this could eventually become o problem on a job market.

Yea I know this is extremely wrong and sad in my opinion. It's a fact that society wants everyone to act and look like robots, just look at the politicians for example. All looking (and acting) like clones.

It all comes down to ur personal preference. I don't judge anyone, but I also don't like to be judged by others. My personal preference as far as facial hair goes is to leave it fairly natural, but I could never go all out natural in means of just not shaving anything at all. If that's your thing fine, but I do shave or just trim some of my facial hair from time to time (usually not more often than once a month tho). I have a hard time letting my moustache to grow over my upper lip, so I trim them when that happens. I do not have a lot hairs growing on the sides so I sometimes just shave the sides completely and just let a goatee. In the past I liked to experiment with different beard styles but this can get quite time consuming if u want to keep some "perfect" beard shape at all times. I stopped doing this around the same time when I stopped having expectations about "perfect" dreads. At first I wanted to have dreads like african american twisted style, but I'm far past this point now.

At first I wanted to have dreads because of fashion reasons but when I actually got properly educated on the matter (by Soaring Eagle), I now have a completely different perspective. I started seeing natural as more beatiful and superior to all those overly manufactured and artificial stuff that we get bombarded with by media and popular culture.
