How many dreads do you have ?


General Questions

27 with a small section of undreaded hair that may one day make 28, but I'll just have to wait and see with that. They are all different sizes but I suppose about medium for most of them.

More than a year in and my hair is still a mess lol


Introduce Yourself

I used the nutregena stuff in the very beginning and the residue was horrid. I bought the patchouli one from them and got a sample of the nag champa with it. The bar was so big I had to cut it in half. The first half lasted me two months and that was using it to wash my hair and my face. Right now I'm using one of the sample pieces of nag champa I got,it smells so wonderful I love them both. The shipping was super fast mine came much sooner than I had expected.

Itchy scalp.


Dread Maintenance

Lavender is also great. You can mix them with water in a spray bottle and spritz yourself when you start getting itchy, I did that in the beginning when I got to the itchy stage, it's a nice quick relief without going to all the trouble of a shower

Question for you natural dreadies


General Talk

The first month is generally the hardest, but once you get past that it's like nothin. Jus be patient they'll come. I think mine finally started to begin locking at about a month and a half or so and once they started there was no stoping them. Enjoy your journey now these moments are very special even if they seem minor now you'll look back at them and miss them. In the end you're going to have something very special that he's gonna miss out on.

Which method is best?


Dreading Methods

My hair is like that too. I went all natural. As for the shampoo, get something else I used it when my dreads were still rather new like a few months old and it leaves a horrible build up, my scalp was so slimy and itchy it was really gross. I used bs and avc after that and it cleared up the residue issue now I use the bars from bucks country being that you're just starting though I'd reccomend bs and avc

Acceptance


General Talk

My husband was the same way. In the beginning it was constant he'd say things about them being messy and dirty (messy sure dirty never) how he would cut them all off when I was sleeping if I didn't brush them out and that I wasn't nearly as attractive anymore. He never said any of it in a joking manner and the things he said hurt me very much, but I stayed strong and defiant. I am now 6 months along in my journey and the comments have pretty much stopped, once in a while he'll make an off hand remark but it's not nearly as bad as it was and I get complements from strangers now and then which helps show him that they are looking very nice at their age (he is impatient and wanted me to have perfect mature locks overnight). Anyways I feel like I'm rambaling now, just stay strong and happy and soon the comments will end. Blessings

Article Critique: "White People and Dreadlocks: A Problematic Union"


History and Religious Significance

@ Marc. Okay, I understand everyone's points here,but I have one issue. Marc you listed off many racial words but cunt doesn't fit it is a word that refers to the vagina (I personally find cunt to be a beautiful word use it on a fairly regular basis and find no offence in it). Now the only thing I can figure is (and I may be mistaken here) that cunt is a reference to the word squaw which for years has been a misunderstood word. Squaw doesn't mean cunt it means simply woman (as a whole, not any one body part) it was misinterpreted a couple hundred years ago and people ran with it. There's my two cents

Dread Shampoos Vs Baking soda wash


Dread Maintenance

I ended up with really bad dandruff too when using the bs and avc (never tried strengthening it though) I started using the bar shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com in patchouli (which it wonderful for dandruff) and it cleared up right away. I like the shampoo better than the bs (haven't tried the liquid) I found that my dandruff is gone, I don't itch and my locks are tightening up much faster now. I've noticed some serious root lock up in just a few washes

two tailed dread?


Dread Maintenance

I'm not sure about the back combing thing, but I would say if you want them to be one bead it or separate them all together. I ve never had any split but I have had some that I wanted to come together and I just beaded them together at the center to help coax them together
