Wool hats/tams


General Questions

okay thanx, and also is it bad for your dreads to spend a long time under a hat be it wool or otherwise? like is it better for them to be out more often or doesn't really matter? the reason i ask is because i wear a loose beany to work made from nylon because its allot thinner and cooler but when i get home i have a big, thick, loose one and was wondering if it would help them out to wear wool when im home or just let em loose.. btw theyre 10 day old TnR baby's. cheers, i freakin love this site :)

hey:) i'm about one month in an stoked with the progress! every morning is like xmas rushing to the mirror to see how they're changing. didn't use rubber bands though? just counted em yesterday and i got about 80 in a mohawk! theyre pretty thin but i figured i could always just let em congo later on.. i've been using a weak salt water spray and leaving it in, working AWESOME. though its supposed to be harsh on the scalp if left in i haven't had any trouble so far will report if i do. peace:)

hi! thinking dreadhawk??

ooh one more thing, any preferences for best hat to wear? gotta look as clean and fake as humanly possible for work so if i can keep em under wraps till they tighten up without hurting them that'd be awesome :)

Introduce Yourself

hi everyone, glad i found this site :)

my names sam and ive been contemplating dreads for a while now. i havent used shampoo in my hair for over 12 months though ive been just using conditioner when it feels dirty so im well and truly past the oily stage from not washing. and i rinsed my hair the other day in salt water just to see what would happen and it was almost instant dreads :) (my hair is about 6-7 inches long, brown, curly and thick) i did cut it in a mohawk about 3 months ago but its grown out now and looks pretty goofy so im getin the sides shaved tomorrow to regain the hawk and then im thinkin about dreadin whats left. i was thinking of trying to section it a bit to avoid the part straight down the middle of my head (from an undercut that was worn from age 10-13 :P) but otherwise i wanted to go natural. also any oppinions/experience with twist an rip? im stuck wearin a beanie with the back of my hawk hangin out the bottom so it looks like i have a mullet so the sooner i can get dreadin the better i reckon :)

cheers guys

Why not to wear hats when natural dreading - my year and a half journy and the effect the hat had.


Saved Dreads Success Stories

man, i'm going through this EXACT same thing. i dunno i've worn some kind of head covering pretty much every day for the last 7 years and i'm having a real hard time trying to convince myself to stop. tappin into some deep self esteem issues here, wish it wasn't such a big deal but it just is for some reason. weird, i know.
