Old vs young


General Talk

Don't know. I get a lot of positive reaction, don't really notice the negative anymore unless it's blatant which hasn't happened for awhile. The worst I've gotten lately is someone thinking I'm more "Go With The Flow" than I really am. Assumptions based on what the person relates to the image of dreads.

Do you consider yourself a hippie?


General Talk

It's a label that works well enough so I use it when I feel like it. More often I just call myself a caveman though.

What are your reasons for not growing a beard?


General Questions

I'll eventually grow out the beard, but for the time being I'm taking advantage of my baby face. =D

Misguided racism (well isn't it always?) towards caucasian dreadies...


General Talk

I don't typically see any black people with dreads claiming it's cultural appropriation. Then again, when they complain about 'whites' it isn't typically in a racist manner but more about industrialization and commercialization. Those that do truly associate it to cultural reasons are generally happy to see dreads on white people because it is symbolism for casting off a harmful social and economic system and a return to a more natural approach to life regardless of the individuals personal reasons for having dreads.I have had a few people question me in a way leading to the "white people shouldn't have dreads" thing. But they've always been pleased that I know the historical and cultural meaning and it's not just for looks.

As for that site specifically, well, they have an article about footwear with a pic of a nike. I may be going out on a limb here but I'll assume it's promoting consumerism. An idea typically frowned upon by all dreadheads.

Congos


Dreading Methods

Yep, Just pull them back, when they grow out you won't notice anymore. I probably have a good 30 congos.

This is not looking good


Introduce Yourself

In the beginning stages when the dreads are still knotting up it's best to just focus on your scalp, when they start getting longer you will notice that you don't need to focus on the dread very much. They only really get oily in the first couple of inches by the scalp so it isn't really necessary unless you do something that gets them dirty. For the most part the soap that rinses through will wash them enough.

Ear piercings + dreads problems.


General Talk

It was bothersome when they were healing, but now I just grab the dread and rip it off of the piercing.

Could dandruff be mistake for as lice?


Dread Maintenance

Rubbing alcohol is not very pleasant to get in your eyes. Also quite annoying if you are a smoker, guaranteed that you will be wanting a cig the whole time. But it works wonderfully and feels nice and tingly if your scalp isn't overly sensitive.

Thinning Dreads from interlocking


Dread Maintenance

Continuing to see a loctician is at very least a waste of money..at most is destructive. If he's just washing and twisting I don't really see how that could cause the roots to be breaking unless you don't moisturize your hair.Both diet and stress can cause your hair to start thinning along with pretty much anything else that causes hormonal changes.Un!que said:
In fairness to my loctician, I really don't know what kind of method that he uses to do my dreads. I've done some reading on interlocking and I don't believe that is the process that used on me. The rest of my dreads are fine, I would say that I have 4 dreads that have thinned out.

Could other factors, such as diet,stress, etc,.. cause this? I should also add that the only time my dreads are washed is when I see my loctician

spelling matters!


General Talk

You read by recognizing only the first and last letter and the number of characters anyway. hehe... I agree that grammar and punctuation are important but I don't feel that it's really all that necessary to portray an idea intelligently. I'd say most people on the interwebs are more comfortable with some spelling mistakes and internet slang than properly written english.Of course, I sure as hell wouldn't sign any kind of contract that I notice spelling mistakes in.lol
