combing out year and a half old natural locks


Dread Maintenance

my boyfriend just called me from work and he was actually pretty upset to hear that i'm seriously considering getting rid of my dreads. he's afraid i'm gonna change who i am and start wearing make up again and shaving my armpits every day. NOT gonna happen, haha. i told him i can still be exactly who i am without my hair in dreadlocks. he also thinks i'm gonna really regret doing it, which i probably will, but i do have such beautiful hair... ugh i'm so conflicted right now :(

combing out year and a half old natural locks


Dread Maintenance

))hugs(( i love you guys.

it's definitely not over a guy! my boyfriend loves my hair and will probably be sad to hear that i want to change it. i talk about missing my hair all the time, and i feel like it's holding me back.

i'm in a really tough spot right now... i quit my last job in march, like an idiot, they were totally fine with my crazy hair. but i'm facing being homeless if i can't find a job really, really soon, and it's so tough when all people see is my hair instead of ME. no matter how good i look on paper, i'm plagued by judgmental people's opinions of me based on my appearance.

i do love my dreads, so very much. and you're right, SE, i probably will feel a huge sense of loss if i do decide to go through with it.

a few months ago i had a really intense trip on LSD and almost combed them out then, but i decided not to. ever since then it's been in the back of my head, and i think it's time to go for it.

gosh i'm almost in tears.

i know i can always do it again if i feel the time is right, but i just don't think dreads are right for me at this point in my life.

combing out year and a half old natural locks


Dread Maintenance

i've thought about it for the past few months, and i believe it's time to say goodbye to my dreads, for now.

this is how i'm thinking about doing it: leave conditioner on my head for an hour or so a few nights in a row, slowly start to work on the looser ones, then dedicate a full day or two to having someone else work on combing them out.

what's the best sort of comb to use?

any tips on a good kind of conditioner?

i'm so sad to say goodbye, but i think it's time. i know that i can always lock up again later, when the time is right. i'm so grateful for the time i've had with my dreads, and for all the loving support i've received from the members of this site.

love and light!

Dread Separation Anxiety


General Questions

just keep separating, it does get sort of wild in the beginning. big frizzy mess in my experience. i've found my favorite beads on etsy =) and yes a square inch root will lead to a square inch dread

lemon juice / putting leftover salt sprays in fridge?


Dread Maintenance

oh duh, i've definitely read about lemon juice on here before. haha thanks for reminding me!

okay, maybe i'll try it this time and see if it helps the mildewy smell.

lemon juice / putting leftover salt sprays in fridge?


Dread Maintenance

several customers in my store (usually black men with natural dreads, one white woman with backcomed--but not waxed--dreads) have told me to use lemon juice on my hair to tighten it up. has anyone had experience with this? positive, negative?

i just put about a tablespoon in my regular salt & lavender spray.

also, i usually have a lot of leftover spray after i mist my whole head, and i was wondering if it could be kept in the refrigerator so as to save the rest of it without it smelling like mildew.

thanks guys!

dreadlocks polls dread wax vs natural results


Dreading Methods

i wonder if some of the dissatisfaction among wax users has to do with their thinking that dreads have to be perfect & manufactured-looking, whereas natural dreadies celebrate the "imperfections" in the dreads that make them unique... just a thought. interesting post =)
