love and dreads


Life Issues Facing Dreads

My fiance is the cause of my dreads...We were young and crazy. With nothing better to do or better to go than a hotel and ended up stayin there for 3 days. then suddenly i woke up one of those morning with dreads lol....We call them my love locks and if we break up I gotta cut em...lol...i dont see that happening tho so I believe im good.So my dreads mean alot to me. My bf is a glassblower an he had a bad accident about a yr before we met an ended up with brain damage that affected his vision among other thing. So after that he wasnt blowing glass anymore. I told him I wasnt going to put any glass in my dreads until he blew me something...so finally a buddy let me do it on his equipment...my 1st piece of glass was the 1st piece he blew since his accident....its the ugliest bead ive ever seen..lol...but i wouldnt trade it for the world....

Whats it like being a dready parent?


Dreads in the Family

oh man, Ive gotten into my "hippie" rampages as they so say about how they hell can they raise their kids to be unique and be yourself and when we are you dont want us to come o Christmas? I am a good person and I know it. I'm in college, I get good grades, I dont do drugs, Idont drink anymore and when I do, i dont drive. I dont lie or cheat or steal. I dont get in trouble with the law. I go to church. My fiance and I just bought a house. What more could you ask for? Isn't that what is important?No of course not. I need to wear more make-up and brush my hair, and wear nicer shoes and stop lookin like a hippy bum. thats just so ignorant.but that's alright. I know there isnt anything wronge with my hair and that's all that matters. It just sucks when we got to listen to it over and over and over and over again. My hair dosnt make me and lesser of a good person and that is final. :)soaringeagle said:

well
i can tell u when she sees someone she looks up to or respects admitre yuir dreads or lifestyle ot may make her think twice about her artitude
mine was like that too for 15 years till she saw conservative old lasdies all raving about how much they loved my dreads.. havent hears a negative word since
as it is they think dresds are a bad reflection on them how can they lrt theyre gids grow up to be ..bums..druggies.. all the negative stereotypes.. but when they see you admorred and respected thet have to realize thety did ok raisimng a unique special person

hugs
wow i see a lotta typos i hope yoir decoder ring works

I usually only get stares from old people and little kids. My mother doesnt have dreads, she actually hates them. Theres 3 children in our family i have an older brother and older sister (10-12 years older than me) and my brother and I both have dreads. It driiives my mom nuts. Plus our sister is a little hippie chick too but she isnt into the whole dread thing. Our dad dosn't like them and whenever somethig unfortuanate happens he always says "So wheres the power in your dreads now? What are they doing to help you?" We're just like dude...that has nothing to do with what just happened...

Thats bad but he dosn't stoop as low as my mother. She uninvites me and my brother from Christmas and all other family gatherings. Our family has a few doctors in it and the elders are all well off prim and proper white folk. So, she makes this huge deal about how shes so embarressed and all that jazz....We still go to family things. My brother an I know that they may or may not like our dreads but thats not whats important to them. They are just happy to see us from time to time and happy that we are healthy enough to be there but my mother just wont accept that.....

She gets really hardcore and says some hurtful stuff to us sometimes. One year I got fed up with it and i wore one of my old grateful dead tye dyes to christmas dinner (with all the doctors)...of course i did have a very pretty skirt and a pretty velvet vest over it. They all liked it and said it was very festive. My mother could have killed me.

My dad dosnt take it that far and he's one of those real old school rednecks that farmed the backie fields his entire life. Wake up at 4..work in field...go to school..work in field...an do it all over again....

It's rough sometimes when my mom starts busting out tears an tries to make us fee bad...i wish she would just accept that Jesus dosnt care about my hair. but it dosnt look like that is gunna happen

Help! Tried to fix mold and then it led to another....


Dread Maintenance

Yeah they do. Just bit of an oil feel...i am going to do that more often..I tried to talk my brother into doing it but he refuses to wash his dreads. He's convinced himself that all natural dreads are naturally clean. But he's an idiot. Everyone knows it, and he knows it so whatever.Thanks alot for the help. I was hoping I wouildn't have to cut them. I've spent so much time doing hardly anything to my hair so that I could have the dreads form the way they wanted to. This last yr they really started actully looking like dreads. I never waxed or twisted them or tied them or anything. I figured if they wanted to lock up they would...and thankfully they did. :)

I did the super waah and boy was that water nasty..haha...I didnt the vinegar rinse too. It feels alot better but still a little oily. Is that normal since u add oil to the rinse? Maybe its still from all that tea tree. I didnt add any today. I use a few drops on orange and rosemary in the baking soda wash and then in the rinse i used lavender. but i didnt use very much since i usedto much yesteday.
