crazy locticians


salon and loctician dreads recovery

I must seem fairly intimidating because I have yet to have a loctician walk up to me and say anything.

Introduce Yourself

Hello, Lo.

Welcome to the site and enjoy being yourself while you have dreadlocks. While you are still in the early development stages, spend a lot of time outside enjoying the wind.

Ignore the ignorant comments you may hear from people around you they'll change their tune as your dreadlocks keep developing. If you happen to have a job at the moment tell your boss. "Dreadlocks are the ultimate end of wind blown hair."

lost a dread!


Introduce Yourself

I had a portion of one of my thin dreadlocks fall off also. However, in my case, the dreadlock fell off because the hair surrounding the core shed off like normal hair would do. I grabbed the dreadlock and pulled gently and that was all it took. Thankfully the the rest of the dreadlock is still there and it looks like nothing happened.

Aloe Vera


dready interests

good beginning

Soaring Eagle hit the nail on the head. As fas as I know he has had dreadlocks for the longest on this site. In most cases aloe vera has been used for conditioning when needed. Start growing the plant in container pots.

Dreadlocked Patients


General Talk

I'd want my dreadlocks washed when they look oily and towel dried as much as possible and then left to air dry.

Talking with the patient's mother is a good beginning on how to educate your fellow staff members on how to deal with our particular hairstyle.

TnR Q's


General Questions

The braided look will go away in about the time Baba stated. Only to be replaced with the bumpy look from all the loops and kinks that become the core of your dreadlocks.

Stop nitpicking your hair. Having dreadlocks is more about letting go of control rather than trying to control everything. You will be more peaceful in the long run.

Dreadlocks are the ultimate end to wind blown hair, so go outside more often like you may have done as a young kid and enjoy the wind.

One Month Later...


Dread Maintenance

The things that can be said about letting your dreadlocks form are:

1. keep your hair "washed" on a regular basis.

2. Separate/pull dreadlocks away from each other. Doing this will give you some choice on how thick the sections are.

3. Go outside and enjoy the wind. Dreadlocks form because the wind creates the tangles which become matted knots and ultimately form your dreadlocks.

For any ignorant remarks you may receive tell people "Dreadlocks are the ultimate end of wind blown hair." They'll shut up fast.

Measuring dread/dread beads


Dread Accessories

In most cases it's all about trial and error. Find a bead and put it on a dreadlock. If the bead falls off easily the bead is too big for that particular dreadlock.

Personally speaking, unless I use seed/peyote stitch beads my dreadlocks are too thin for the majority of beads that can be found.

How did this guy start his locs?


Introduce Yourself

Just keep your sections fairly small and you'll have dreadlocks similar to John Forte's. I keep my sections fairly small and my dreadlocks look like thick chunky hair until you get up close and see the congoes.

You are not blacker than me!!!! black on black dread disrespect


General Talk

When my dreadlocks where less mature than they are now, I have seen people shake their heads because they thought my dreadlocks were better than theirs.

Doogie said:

I seen this black dude the other day in Kmart who had dreads. I didn't like his dreads cause they had no character! All the same thickness and stuff! He just kinda looked at me and my hair and just shook his head like white boy you shouldn't even attempt dreads! Just kinda sarcastically shook his head and I kinda thought that that was what he was thinking all because of the way he shook his head.
