I feel like my natural dreads are at such a blah stage. A few questions.


General Questions

id recommend you keep on-top of separating them. Though you will get loose hairs and what not I feel it is better to keep them maintained at least in a separating sense. I didn't do anything with separating my dreads for around a half a year and this weekend I started to attempted to break up some of the congos. Let just say it wasn't that enjoyable. Some of my hairs were joined to dreads from pretty great distances. For example dreads from the side of my head where grasping hairs growing out of the back of my head. The worst was towards the back of my head. I spent most of the weekend just "picking" at my head trying to separate each hair individual so I didn't have to make any drastic cuts and ruin any dreads. I'm actually still not done the separating process.
Now that I've gone of on a tangent of my own experience, I think it is better to separate where and when you see fit. It is better than having to do it when dreads are already committed to dreading with each other. Saves you some pain and time in the long run.
And addressing the loops and stuff that is normal.

Six things city dwellers miss out on


General Talk

I saw this article posted somewhere else and thought it would be beneficial to repost it here:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ygreen/20101111/sc_ygreen/sixamazingthingscitydwellersmissoutonHere is the list according to the article:1. Stars2. Fresh Air3. Peace and Quiet4. Greenery5. Sounds of Nature6. Animals and WildlifeThough I live in the suburbs outside of Philly (in jersey), I find the most impacting on the lsit being that stars. When I go on vacation or just go to a more remote area the stars in the sky are just amazing. I could spend so much time just staring at the sky.I also read the comments briefly and noticed one thing that wasn't mentioned in the main article. The commenter said that he or she doesn't have to worry about locking doors and cars and knows all the neighbors. Everyone was much friendlier. Though this is a generalization I feel that it still applies and is one of the most important factors. Well anyways yeah just though I would share this even though most of us already probably knew it.

Dread Heritage


History and Religious Significance

Obviously we all know that dreads aren't limited to just a certain group of race of individuals. I thought we could celebrate this by posting our heritage and make a certain "map" to see how many different ethnicity here have dreads. This can then be utilized by us here and outside of the forums just to signify how diverse they are present day.Well I'll start out first I guess, I'm 100% Italian.

Sadness


General Talk

I definitely agree with you. Balance is necessary for life. You have to experience both sides of the spectrum to truly appreciate the good. I know this is somewhat going of on a tangent but I believe this segment of one of William Cooper's interviews is very fitting for this topic. " target="_blank">
To put it bluntly I don't understand how anyone whether it be on these forums or in the real world can believe or hope for a perfect world. The nature of the life is to have both sides of the spectrum. Please watch the video from around 1:30 to around 3:30ish.

If it weren't for differences, then how can we learn to appreciate variety? If there weren't conflict how could we learn patience, and the grace needed to deal with them? If it weren't for frustrations, then how could we learn about tolerance and enough about ourselves to know what we like and don't like? Differences and conflict are ultimately opportunities to grow as people.

Of course, I can say that much more easily than I can live it - but I try! ;P

I want to dye my dreads...


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

here is video i found on youtube pretty quickly regarding soaringeagle's suggestion of dying with kool aide:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhwsWfiNO04The person stated in the description "... I used kool-aid (unsweetened) and it left like a cool red tint on my hair. I like it and plus it fades out in a couple of weeks."
