White fuzzy grossness in dreads? :( Help, is this mold or lint??


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Okay thanks for the responses everyone. I found some more and I'm 99.9999% sure that it's lint that just worked it's way into the dreads.

My babies are dreading at the root!


General Talk

Every time I wash they dread more and more. It's amazing, happening literally right in front of my eyes. Even some of the loops and zig zags have started tucking into the locs on their own. Crazy how fast they are progressing!

taking the loooong road.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Like SE said, I never sold anything because I never had anything.

But yeah, I've sort of done this. Not walking though. Back in 05 I got the travel bug after reading some books (The Beach was one of them) and watching some travel movies. I don't know why it had never occurred to me before this time, but I devoted all my energy to saving up money to do whatever I wanted from there on out. I worked pizza delivery for almost 4 years and in 2009 I had tons of cash saved up from my tips, so I bought a plane ticket to thailand and just left. All I had was a little backpack with a few changes of underwear, my money, a toothbrush, etc. I brought practically nothing else. When I got over there, people always commented on how light I was traveling, they'd be like "where's your stuff?" And I'd just hold up this bag that was the size of a purse, lol. I've never felt so free.

I came back a few months later to the states but the travel bug was far from gone. I just couldn't go back into any sort of "conventional" life after that so I packed up my car with all my belongings (wasn't much) and left California. I headed east and it was one of the greatest adventures of my life, even better than Asia! I spent some time in Missouri (where I met my boyfriend) and then moved on to North Carolina where I eventually 'settled' (kinda, for now) because it's so beautiful here. My boyfriend ended up coming back here too and living with me and we got a cabin in the mountains and lived there for over a year. It was great fun. We are still living here now and saving up money so we can buy our own fifth wheel rig and truck, and then we are going to be road warriors indefinitely.

In my experience the things in life that seem like the biggest risks have given me the biggest rewards. I had almost no money (maybe $800 total in cash with NO plan) when I left California and by the time I got to NC I only had maybe $200, it was crazy, no plan, nothing. But I ended up barely scraping by and getting a little job for a bit and then life just went on...I can't imagine how much I'd have missed out on had I just stayed in my hometown and been "sensible" about my goals.. blah.

You only live once and it's always better to regret doing something than not doing something. But I've never regretted a thing. :)

Do Dreadlocks make it harder to find a job?


dreads jobs employment issues

I just got my first job since having dreadlocks. I had an under the table sort of job before this where no one gave a shit at all. But this is for a retail store job and I got hired right away after my interview. I don't think very many places will care if you have dreadlocks as long as you keep them neat and do your work.

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

No I didn't. I should have.

I don't think it's baking soda. It's fuzzy, like lint. The way it looks, Id definitely think it was lint if it wasn't on the inside. It worries me because I live in the south and it's very humid here and I've had mold issues at every house I've lived in for the past two years. :( Is there anything other than lavender oil that can prevent it?

White fuzzy grossness in dreads? :( Help, is this mold or lint??


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Yesterday I saw some white fuzzy stuff on one of my dreads. Not like a piece of lint that had just attached itself to the outside, but on the hair itself, stuck to it. So because I was curious I pulled the dread apart a little bit and was horrified to find a ton of this white fuzzy stuff, all inside!

Then in a state of panic attack I end up ripping the whole dread apart and combing it out, getting tons of this "fuzz" out... I washed it and put the dread back in, but still, I am completely freaked out now, thinking that this stuff is on the inside of ALL my dreads. I already am seeing it on the outside of some of my other dreads, I don't understand. It looks like lint, but if it were, why would it be inside the dreads like this? Is it mold? God... it looks like mold and I'm scared.

I have been washing every 3 days with dr. bronner + the baking soda wash with good oils like tea tree, lavender, etc. I have been doing everything right that I can think of. My dreads never have any trouble drying and have never smelled of mildew or anything so I've never worried about mold...until now.

What IS this? Is there something different I should be doing to prevent this? HELP. I don't want to lose my dreads.

what to do about loose hair?


Introduce Yourself

I have loose hairs and I hope they never go away. It makes it look so much more natural, imo.

dreadlocks changing more than your hair


General Talk

They made me feel sexier. Which is funny, because I know a lot of people in the world would have said I was way sexier before with my sleek black hair that went all the way down to my butt. But the fact of the matter is, I didn't feel like "me" with that hair... never really did. That's why I wore it up in a messy bun for years.

Dreads made me, ME. I feel like ME now. My outsides match who I am on the inside. And while some might disagree that my hair is sexier now, the confident vibe I send out now definitely is noticeable.
