New dread head in need of advice


Introduce Yourself

I live in Grand Rapids, Mi and having issues with hard water residue as well. My dreads atre taking on a rust color from the iron in the water. :( What would anyone recommend to get the residue out? Should I start rinsing with distilled water?

natural neglect hair sectioning


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

It totally worked out fine. I got a bit paranoid at the beginning, cuz i couldn't see the back of my head very well and found out i had a 3 inch section dreading together. I ended up undoing most of that giant dread when they were about 2 months along, but it re-dreaded really quick. Now, at nine months, they stay pretty well separated. i still go through and separate after each wash, about 2x per week.

My hair is doing this, too - I posted on it before finding this thread. How is it going now? Your photos show our hair is similar in some ways. I am also sharing your profile with Zom-B, who will be in the same boat soon, I think.

PurkurrĀ“s neglect method


Member Journals and Timelines

Here's another hug for you, Purkurr! :) I heard someone else on here say that month 4 is the hardest because of the messiness. I've gotten a little freaked-out by mine lately, but just the other day I got a "nice dreads" comment from a complete stranger. I think we can be really self-critical and not see things very accurately. Much love!

Thanks and no problem.:) Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help out with the site. I feel really strongly about supporting things that feed my Spirit, like this natural dread journey has been doing in so many ways.

drum circles


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Wow! The way you describe the drum circle experience is right on, SE.I remember feeling so alive and connected, like time didn't exist. I wasn't able to drum for long, cuz my hands hurt, butI loved to dance!I really miss going; been pretty wrapped-up with baby and child care the last several years.I've been thinking a lot lately about selling my electric guitar stuff that I never use anymore and buying a drum or maybe a wooden flute. I bet Spirit would send some fellow drummers my way if I put the vibe out there. :)

Meatless March Madness


Dreads and Diets

Geez, I think the Universe is speaking to me about going veggie. I am inspired by this discussion and others I've read recently and by some of the info Didgeridurian has out there on vegan diets. My dreads are growing into my brain, as SE puts it. Haha!

OMG while i was reading this...I had a mental picture of our members knocking on the doors of all the people who abuse their knotty heads. Wanting to share the message of peace love and healthy dreads in order to save those dreads from LOCK HELL. lol sorry i just had to share that. Seriously, Soaring Eagle started this site to educate people about HEALTHY locks. It would be hypocritical of him to just say...sure do whatever...it is all ok...because it is not. This whole site is dedicated to giving people knowledge and spreading the information that hair knots....all by itself. There have been so many people that put their trust in salons and dread kits. They come here to get help after they have made those mistakes. Why would you want to argue about the very reason this site was created? We are not knocking on your door...you come to us.
