Hi I'm Julie! Any backpackers here?
That sounds great will do!
Thanks soaring-eagle that's really cool info! I love natural herbal plant remedies for everything, that's going in my notebook for sure! And I'm actually hiking the Appalachian trail, I've done sections of it before but I've never gone long distance hiking before
Hi everyone! I've been hoping to re-form my dreadlocks after having my first set almost six years ago through a twist and rip-similar method, but these new ones are going to be no hassle, no force, only watching what nature does to my hair.
I know that depending on the hair type, dreadlocks are ever changing and take months to years to fully mature. In six months I'm leaving for a backpacking trip on a popular trail that will itself take 5-6 months to complete, meaning that the entire second half of the first year of my natural neglect dreadlock journey will be happening in the woods! Does anyone have any experience similar to this and advice they can share?
The only thing I'm mildly concerned about is getting twigs and leaves in the forming hair, but I'll be traveling with a friend who promised they'll be my groomer monkey in place of me having a mirror.
