General Questions

i really like you baba lolJasper, if you have a hard time verbalizing what you said, you could just show her your posting, it's well thought out and respectful. :) And the others are right, only she can choose how she'll respond. And her response says more about her than about you. I say this as a mother :) It's hard to let your kids do what you think isn't good for them. But that's our job once they are old enough to live with the consequences. That said, she may decide that she cant live with dreads, or live with dreads supportively and you may have to make other choices.

help with my mom


Introduce Yourself

I'm a parent... with dreads. My kids are proud of them lol. It's not that parents have poor attitudes, its *people* can have poor attitudes. The only difference is a parent *thinks* they have to try and protect you from harm and criticism, and sometimes end up being far more critical in their efforts to protect you from strangers. Try not to give up on humanity for the flaws of the weak or unenlightened. :)Also, the quickest way to lose someone's support is to put them on the defensive. xo

retwisting dreads locs dangers


Help! Save My Dreads

Maybe I don't have a good picture. But this to me doesn't look like alopecia, it looks like severe breakage. And if that's the case, they will regrow, the only question is will the regrowth happen fast enough to save the existing dreads.

what to do about "cowlicks" ?


Dread Maintenance

Isnt that like the center of the spiral on the top/back of your head? My hair naturally falls away from that as well and so I let those be sections around that but as they locked up I found that to be irritating and overly sensitive so I grabbed one on each side and joined them. It'll be a fatty but at least that weird hole and sensation is gone :)

General Talk

Lol something tells me you don't really need a lot of help to relax :) Your hair looks great, and your smile still does as well. Can't wait to watch those locs form. What a great idea having friends pick out your beads and the locs they go on! Love that!

Not sure if my dreads are even growing?


Help! Save My Dreads

You can always Congo 2 smaller dreads if the root sections are compatible. I've done that to 6 (down to 3) locks. I loosely twisted them around each other and threw a couple beads on. You don't need to twist. You could just bead or wrap a string.
