dreaddy family in need of all sorts of advice


Help! Save My Dreads

you need 70 percent rubbing alcohol to sit on your heads under plastic for 15 to 30 minutes ever 3 days for 9 days to get rid of the lice. Along with that you can use neem seed oil to destroy there reproduction. Also change out all the bedding and such. Tea tree oil is supposed to prevent lice so that might be helpful to pick up too. Good luck getting rid of the bugs!

p.s. there are many ways to get rid of lice this is just the most diy. Idk how putting alcohol on a kids head is gunna work out for you.

p.p.s the alcohol burns a little but feels almost good and will clean up any bites they may have taken out.

dreadlockssite needs your help and donations for a special cause


General Talk

I would LOVE to donate but with 2 kids and me and my husband being out of work right now I have a negative amount of money. :/ If I even had a dollar I'd send it to you.

The accidental dready


General Talk

My husband didn't like them either. I didn't brush my hair for a few weeks and I really didn't want to start again. I felt really guilty because I didn't tell him I was going to have them. So I went up and said "how do you really feel about dreadlocks?" he cringed and said he thought they were gay (no offence but that is what he said). That make me feel sick to my stomach and before I knew it I said "What about on me! " and he was like "Ohhh cool, DO IT!" lol so you really never know. But that mightjust be me. Im sure if you find out what he really hates about them you can work through it together.

Hair length/thickness issues?


General Questions

I was going to comment but the Barrellady said almost everything I was going to say. I would also say your dreads most likely wont shrink to the same length, cutting it to the same length wont necessarily mean your dreads will be the same length in a few months.

how are my dreads coming along?


Introduce Yourself

The only thing you NEED to do is wash and separate. Neglect works.

To TNR or not?


Dreading Methods

In a year or two it wont matter but its almost summer and if you plan on wearing your hair up a lot while its hot tnr might help your sections stay apart better (rather than a dread pony tail) but if you can handle your hair down or dont mind seperating you wont regret neglect. I went with neglect 51 weeks ago but I wonder how theyd look if I did use tnr.

Keepin it cool.


General Questions

This is only the second summery day We've had up here where I live and I don't know how I'm gunna do it! What are some things you do to beat the summer heat while letting your hair move and lock up. Im at almost a year neglecting and I am SO close to how I want my hair to look and I dont want to hold back the few loose hairs I have. BUT I dont want to die this summer either.

Can't wait to read your tips! Dang its hot!

Questions about locing my hair,


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Dry hair will lock up better, so I wouldn't use coconut oil. If you don't want your sections to be like a grid you should just neglect, your hair doesn't need tnr to lock up. Let your hair go wild and leave your it down and natural as often as possible. If you need gel sometimes I've heard aloe works well and doesn't leave horrible build up (which can attract dirt and feed mold, ewww). You dont need curl defining gel anymore :) Enjoy your journey!
