gonna start again


Introduce Yourself

So yeah about a month or 2 ago I cut my dreads, after not having a hair cut for 6 years. It felt liberating to be able to feel my scalp again. But I am going to embark on yet another dreadlock journey. I love watching the process I just wish my hair grew faster. Im gonna go the natural route again. I got 4 inches gonna let it grow for a while since it shrinks so much in the first 18 months of dreading

so my girl friend wants to re do my dreads


General Talk

So my girlfriend wants to comb out my dreads and re make them. And I have no clue how she is planning to do this. Considering that I'm not really willing to do this. She has this whole concept that my dreads arent that great looking because they don't look like the people in "korn's" manufactured dreads.

I like her alot but i like my dreads alot and aren't about to change for anyone. I don't really know if this is a question vs a rant. But I've had my dreads for almost 4 years and not about to cut them for somone ive only known 4 months.

Dandruff is cause by extrem heat or cold weather, they say that baking soda is one of the best agents in fighting dandruff. I would just use baking soda and acv for a while sounds like your using to many different things.

white ppl w/ dreadlocks in jail or prison???


General Talk

If your in a holding cell no they can't cut them. But if your going to a federal prison they will cut them because prisons teach conformity. Not only that but people can grab them and pull you into their fist. Prisons are full of fighting and when people can use them against you it's not really a fun matter.

Been too lazy on ripping the roots and now unwanted congos starting?


Dread Maintenance

When you rip do it when your hair is wet it will hurt a little less and it will be easier on your hair. You might be able to use a lil pair of scissors or a razor blade, but be VERY CAREFUL don't cut another dread, or split a dread to thin or cut yourself. just keep ripping them every other day so they don't grow together

Hey, another newby


Introduce Yourself

Being as tho your dreads are just beginning, I would use baking soda anything else like bronners or regular shampoo might make your hair slippery and it will take longer to knot up. Your dreads will constantly get loose and tighter loose and tighter the more you do to try to make them look like dreads the longer it will take and the more manufactured it will look. happy dreading

getting my hair wet


Dreading Methods

I wash my dreads sometimes 4 or 5 times a week lately, which is kind of overkill. I try and only do wash them once or twice a week. I work outside in the elements and I get pretty dirty at work I wear double up a pair of pantyhose orwrap themup in a tshirtand put them over my dreads and wear a tam so no dirt, dust, or sawdust get in my dreads.

Its ok for them to get wet u just have to make sure that they get completely dry before you wash them again or it could cause mold or mould issues

OCCUPY WALL STREET *PEACEFUL REVOLUTION, HAPPENING NOW ON WALL STREET*


General Talk

I like protesting and all, but I still don't see the picture, I understand they're are protesting because they feel wallstreet is taking their money. And alot of people are homeless, jobless, with no medical or with little food. But you ever stop to ask yourself, why? are these people like that. Is it the government is it self choice, or are they just blaming the system for their falure in life. It does kind of sound like these people just want to be handed money. They will not change anything, do to the fact that sadly our government doesn't care about any of us.

I dont know what to say...white people look dirty with dreads!!


General Talk

This just wasted a minute of my life, but no the kid looks happy.

I don't think white people with dreads are ugly, but sometimes seeing a family with little kids or a baby at a festival is wrong. Or atleast these people with kids or a baby could be responsible and not do drugs. Its not fun looking a small kid in the face when you are faced. even tho the kids are to young to know what you are on or why there are thousands of crazy partying people
