Dandruff or something else??


Help! Save My Dreads

I use a little less than a cup of BS in a gallon, sometimes I'll do an ACV rince I haven't in a while. I don't know what kind of water I have. And it's like a tacky/gooey feeling or like a grainy mud type feeling.

Dandruff or something else??


Help! Save My Dreads

This is a weird question but lately when I've been washing my hair (i do BS wash) I will scratch my head and there will be like a white substance but I'm not sure if its the baking soda or like wet dandruff. Is it normal?

Stuck hair tie in dread


Help! Save My Dreads

So this hair tie has been in there for a while. I was using the hair to put these two dreads together and I left that it for too long and it's pretty stuck and this is what it has looked like for quite awhile. Should I just cut off the piece that's showing or try to take all of it out? How?

Dry hair


Dread Maintenance

Yeah I'm over a year now. Are there instructions on how to do it? or should I put jojoba oil in the next time I b/s wash?

Dry hair


Dread Maintenance

I get comments that my hair is dry.

Should I condition?

Or ignore it?

Spiritual enlightenment, and dreading.


Introduce Yourself

Everyone has different gains from their journey, but i think a really common one is humbleness. You will be judged, people will make comments, this is something you learn to accept and through this you become more humble. Even if you're the type of person who get attention a lot I think dreading will change the way you feel about the attention you get. From media and the people around you, you were taught that combed, shiny hair is beautiful. Honestly dreading involves some weird things. Having to explain the things I use to wash my hair is weird to people. The way it sets us apart is what makes us more accepting to other people who are set apart. You go through different dread phases that people won't understand. You stop using as much chemicals on your body since you stop using those types of shampoos, I think this does something to your body that makes you feel more part of nature, it's grounding because you flowing with nature rather than against it by using all of these products. In a spiritual sense I've always felt like dreads were an extension of myself in a way that they are keeping in the essence of my conscious within the locks. It sounds weird but they really feel like they're more apart of me than i thought, like I think about my dreads the same way I think about my limbs. You feel and see the progress like you would a child so it's almost maybe more than a limb. When I think about a certain dread I can just touch my head and find it.

Girls with dreads


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I hate that they say that dreads are just a phase. dreads are a journey and the phases of dreads appear within it. I get most of my criticism from my parents, especially my mom, even before my dreads it was constantly "your eyes, your clothes, your weight, blah blah"ignoring it is hard when it's constant but someone is going to love all of you even your dreads. it's the 21st century not all guys are into that 1950's perception of what females should be. I have guys flirt with me in college all the time (well not ALL time but when they do) and usually the conversation starter is about my dreadlocks, usually compliments or asking to touch them. dreads are interesting and unique just like the people who have them.

for those people commenting on the way you choose to look they're really just saying that you're different and that makes them uncomfortable. no one should ever comment on the way other people look thats my mentality unless its a praise or a word of notice. but really just say hey i have dreads this is me and by saying that i'm less attractive makes you less attractive. like psh dreads make guys less attracted to you ..yeah well being an asshole makes people less attracted to them. you can't change the opinions of the people who are criticizing, some people like dreads and some people don't. but you really aught to let them know that comments like that don't help anyone, in fact can lower self esteem, like if they said something like that to the wrong person you never know what could happen, some people can get really offended and put down. I'm glad you're happy though don't sweat the commentary, it's irrelevant to you because you know that you're beautiful and you know that you will find someone who will like all of you for you. :)

Jamaican Mango and Lime No More Itch Gro Spray


Dread Products

olive oil is a conditioner and would probably slow down the process of dreading.

I made the mistake of putting olive oil directly on my dreads and it took while for it to get out but they were pretty soft.
