Dealing with less than positive reactions


Life Issues Facing Dreads

So, a few weeks ago I decided to post a picture of myself on facebook, my unofficial "unveiling" for my now 4 month old dreadlocks. I got a several nice comments, but then I got a comment from an older, very conservative-minded man from my old church (to whom I have NO hard feelings for). I have always been shy and always let myself be walked on. I feel like, since having dreadlocks, I started to learn to love and stand up for myself, so I'm proud of myself for I handled the situation. I'm not trying to put myself on a pedestal or anything, I just thought I would share with you all =]

Here's how things went down:

Hopefully that's legible! If it weren't for you all, I don't think I would have been able to make it this far, so thank you all for being an inspiration to me =]

She's on here but hasn't posted in a long time. I think she mostly sticks to tumblr. But she takes lovely pictures and was my inspiration (amongst a few others) to start my dread journey!

I don't miss not combing!


General Talk

Congrats on your dread journey! I love not having to comb my hair too! And not having to "fix" it if I'm going out anywhere for that matter.

The "Weed Smoking Hippy" Stereotype


General Talk

I've smoked a few times, but I simply just don't like it. I'm not sure what it is. I was at a music festival a few weeks ago and our camping neighbors offered me a hit. When I told them I didn't like it they were surprised!
There's a documentary out that I watched on netflix a year ago or so. I think it's called "Super High Me". I thought it was pretty good, even if I don't smoke =]

mama cloth and menstrual cups!


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

You know, it's funny, the thought of using a menstrual cup just sounded disgusting for the longest time, but ever since I've became health conscious and started looking to mother nature for answers, I really want to get one! Not to mention, I hate having to buy tampons every month! Expensive and wasteful!

Thickening/ adding dreads... Extensions or Wool?


General Questions

Well, hello! So, here is my situation... I had intended on beginning my dreadlock journey this week (after a friend's wedding, long story) but my hair has thinned considerably...I'm talking losing at least 1/3 of the thickness type thinning. I think it is due to the fact that I had my BS/ACV ratios off and that did something to my scalp and burned my hair, which is a bummer because this is the healthiest I've ever treated my hair in a long time (no heat, no hair products, etc). Either that or my hair could still be reacting to postpartum hormones (16months ago). My scalp isn't showing hair loss (anymore), just the thickness in general.

I sectioned my hair into braids yesterday to get a general idea of how many dreads I would have, (I've tried a TnR dread before, so I have a general idea how thick I want them to be) and I had a grand total of 15 (would-be) dreads. It looked like things would be pretty sparse.

I know my hair won't always be as thin as it is now, but I don't want to cut my almost waist long hair and don't want to wait years, or who knows how long, to begin my dread journey... But I DO want to be happy with the way my dreads look (I understand the messiness- I'm talking few, thin dreads).

So I was thinking about either getting extensions to add more hair in order to thicken them up (I dont need it for length, my hair is long enough, just thickness) or making some wool dreads to add in with my real dreads... Any thoughts or opinions?

~B

BS/ ACV before dreading


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thanks SE! Oh and by "get dreads" I meant when I let the dreading process begin =] I'm waiting until after a dear friends wedding (in which I'm a bridesmaid) this summer to begin. I don't mind waiting, I just figure that'll be my last (unlocked) fancy do for a while so I'll just take the time in between to say goodbye to my unlocked hair =]

But my hair really wants to lock, I can tell! Whenever I comb my hair (which takes probably half an hour or so!) I feel like my hair is weeping lol. But you can guarantee after those "I do's" are said not a comb will touch my head!
