essential oils for dreads and scalp health


Dread Products

Supposedly, the genetic tendency for male pattern baldness is inherited from the mother, not the father. So-called "thinning" your hair wouldn't cause baldness unless it was done constantly, as in...every day (traction alopecia).

Introduce Yourself

I agree with the others, and Baba's comment is spot on - dreadlocks should be hair you DON'T have to stress over or think about very much. No need to comb yours out...give it a few days before you make a for-sure decision, don't think about your hair...every time you start to fret over your hair, immediately picture a pretty flower or some object that makes you feel safe and happy.

Then just let your lovely locs be your friends and, like dear friends, accept them for who they are.

I love the concept of dread piercings. Something different and creative. Welcome to etsy, too! I've been a seller on etsy for almost a year & really enjoy running my shop.

The Weight?


General Questions

Thanks, SE. What we learn form our dreads amazes me. I realized, after posting my question above, that the times I feel the weight of my dreads...when it feels like my hair is being pulled...is when I am tired and need to lie down and rest. When I'm feeling refreshed and well-rested my dreads don;t feel heavy at all.

My hair's been talkin' to me!

The Weight?


General Questions

Hi dear ones, I've had my wonderful dreadlocks for many years. They are quite long. My only real concern/problem at this point is the weight of my locs. Perhaps I just have a sensitive scalp, but I wonder - does anyone else feel uncomfortable from the weight of your locs?

Why I don't want to crochet


Dread Maintenance

I've gently crocheted some of my daughter's hair into the ends of some of my own locs. I used a very tiny crochet hook and just wove the hairs through, without breaking them.

I certainly would not recommend crocheting near your scalp because your hair gets pulled too tightly, it feels "tight", and in my opinion, it looks like crap when people have that tight-crocheted look against their scalp.

Why I don't want to crochet


Dread Maintenance

I thought I had heard EVERYTHING about dreading. But a sewing machine? WOW. I'm....uh...at a loss for words....

Put my name on the list of folks who do not prefer "maintained" locs. Yuck. I recoil when I see someone with crocheting done close to their scalp. Ick. I took the plunge and crocheted some of my daughter's hair into some of my dreads (near the ends). But I sure wouldn't advocate crocheting or ANY maintenance crap.

Baba...egg whites and straight-up Elmer's glue, hahaha.

Solace of the Solitary


General Talk

Adam, I'm sorry for the loss of your grandmother.

I have lost many loved ones in my life, especially during the recent decade. Interestingly, my experience of being in the presence of loved ones as they passed was quite different from the one you've described. I saw tremendous peace and beauty on the faces of those who had just died. In some cases, the peace was extremely powerful.

Perhaps we perceive death as we perceive life, who knows. "I think, therefore I am....."
