Best compliment you've received on your dreads?


General Talk

someone told me my hair was perfect. it was nice to hear that. another girl told me my hair was so cool and it was the tone and the look she gave me that was the compliment. she looked really impressed.

Nusing job with dreads?


dreads jobs employment issues

dreads are great for buns and that pretty much negates any issues someone might have with them. i actually find it easier and more comfortable to deal with so it would probably compliment the field quite well.

Dying Dreads With Henna


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

good to know. still unsure about how they get dye release so quick though. i checked out the website. i might have been thinking about a different company. ive dyed it several times since then and the color is pretty different. i use zenia rhajastani from amazon. its really cheap and sold for hair but works like body art quality.

Hey just a heads up. I have been using henna for 3years. Yes my hair is a deep red, but that is a shade from nature. I use HENNA HUT. Please check it out. They use no chemicals to create the colors, just a mixture of indigo and henna. I know other henna companies do use artificial dyes and metals. Please do not knock all companies because Henna Hut is a good and honest business whose product is safe for those who have had cancer, children and even pets. I personally would never dye my children or animals but the product is that safe. Plus HENNA HUT practices are green and environmentally safe. Just check it out. HENNA HUT.COM. Your hair looks great by the way.

Congratulations KnotLady. I wish when I had my children, methods like this were not really talked about like they are now.. I did not even consider this, yet if I had a child now (not possible), I would do this in a heart beat. What a beautiful way to bring a child into this world, in a warm welcoming home instead of a cold sterile hospital delivery room. I wish you all the best keeping your little one nice and warm in your tummy/womb. Congrats again to you and your husband...and your other little one.....peace

VBAC/Homebirth/waterbirth?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

great to hear!! i really am avoiding the hospital at all costs this time. i felt it to be a very unnatural and violating experience. ive got a wonderful midwife and from what else ive read of water i have high hopes that this birth willl go smoothly!! its great to read your experiences!

Ixchel said:

It totally helped for a lot! my first birth the shower was amazing, i didn't want to get out but my doula asked the nurse if i could birth in there & policy said no :( I labored in there most the time tho, & when i wasn't in there i was having counterpressure applied & rocking on the birth ball. 2nd time the pool (& environment) were so relaxing i didn't know that i should sent my husband to work...when i was at an 8 & had baby shortly. 3rd time i was falling asleep in the tub between contractions & the midwife barely made it in to loop the cord over his head lol. Water also helps prevent tearing & makes position changes easier (with my first i tore front & back, 2nd no tears bigger baby & came out much faster & changing movement helped me deal & her get into correct position to come out, 3rd had the biggest head but only had a skid). & i've heard the water is also an easier transition for baby to come earthside.

Even tho my labors were mostly back labor (first birth only felt contractions in my back, 2nd back & legs, 3rd i finally felt some of it in my front side in addition to the back & legs) the water did help, not as much as i had expected/hoped, but without it i'm pretty sure I would have been over my head at times & not been handling it as well. My water/home births seemed much more easier, calm, relaxed & enjoyable than my birthing center land birth. I could ride my waves instead of get pounded down by them.

Ixchel thats awesome! i cant wait and im sure it will be an amazing experience. did you find the water to help with pain and relaxation? it seems logical to think it would.

Thank you taye! me and the hubby are super excited! did you find labor to be different with your VBAC? i labored for about24 hours before an epidural and then 8 before my c-section so im familiar with labor, im just wondering if you noticed anything different in between the two if you were able to labor before the c-section.

Natural process 9 months.. doubts


Introduce Yourself

hey those loose ends are a good thing and they wont necessarily blunt up nor should they. they look fine as it is.

Kato said:

hey dude, stick in there, they look just how they should at nine months, before you know it the ends will curl up and form blunt ends and in a couple of months youll wonder what you were thinking:) im only at 17 months now, i think the hardest bit is accepting that its a long process to get to where youve imagined theyll look, but youll get there and theyll be awesome, and be completly unique to you!
peace to you.

What does everyone do with the front?


Introduce Yourself

i would just dread it because then its actually easier to keep out of your face. i take the dreads on my temples and front and center and flip them backwards to get rid of whatever part and the weight of them keeps it out of my face for the most part.
