new dreads anti itch and conditioners from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

As an update to this, I emailed her again asking when these products would become available, with no answer. The website has not been updated a bit in the last 4 months so apparently these products are no longer planned on being added!

Alright thanks, I emailed her & she said she is just waiting for the packaging to come in before she can start selling them. I'm so excited to try both!

That sounds horrendous!

I always used to think those crochet locks looked nice, until I found out how scratchy they are, and how much maintenance they are! But those pictures definitely changed my mind on the look thing....Gee, you know something is a fashion statement when it has to be sewn together!

And Baba, I have heard of the egg whites! Lol misinformation!

Getting my Whole head done soon very stoked but...


Dreading Methods

I hear ya on the frustration of sectioning out the back/top part, but I agree with the others that, being from a salon, the lady will most likely misuse some good intentions and end up trying to "fix" fuzzy-looking t&r locks with whatever methods are already familiar to her. Plus, it feels so much more empowering if you do them all by yourself.

I really recommend finding a friend that understands basic shapes, and having them point out if you make a section that is misshapen or too large. Plus, you won't have to pay them as much. Good luck!

Dread Heritage


History and Religious Significance

I'm another American mutt! German, English, Scottish, & Cherokee Indian as far as I know, but all of Europe could be in there somewhere.

Fine, Thin Hair & Locks


Introduce Yourself

Wow, thanks for the responses! I feel much more encouraged now.

Taye, even though I am familiar with the Samson & Delilah story (& have always been inspired by it, & other ancient texts that talk of the power that locks bring), I did not know that Vikings had dreadlocks. I'll have to look more into that!

I am aware that many people of Indian or Asian descent, with their generally thick, straight hair have no trouble with dreadlocks, though. I guess I was more addressing the problem that Earthstudios mentioned - the locks forming as little mats & balls on the bottom & not growing up towards the roots. When that happens, they mostly end up just falling out.

It seems like it just might take a little bit longer than most, & that I'm okay with, as long as I have proof that it works for some! I will most likely end up doing a bit of T&R to encourage the sections to form, & then continue with the natural-neglect method, as planned. And, thanks to Soaring Eagle & Heather for pointing out that removing the oils on your hair helps maintain a texture that encourages locking.

Sometimes it's hard not to get impatient, like I'm waiting for a tree to grow so it can give me some fruit already! But of course it helps to realize that it's all part of the journey, & I should just learn to enjoy it.
