What type of dreads do you think my hair will make naturally?


Dreading Methods

It depends on how small you keep the sections (I'm only a month in natural, mind you, so that's the only direct experience I have). But from what I've read, it's best to keep them small in the beginning, as they thicken up over time

Dreading Methods

what kind of dreads? It'll make dreads... I'm not sure what you're asking here. They'll be thick or thin depending on how you separate, if that's what you mean :)

Dread Accessories

I got started making peyote stitches with the help of knottysleeves. It's awesome that you want to start! It's a lot of fun.

I was lucky enough that my mother had inherited a bunch of beads and supplies from a woman who did a lot of beading, so I had everything I already needed at my disposal, including books. I looked through the books, and looked on YouTube for tutorials on the basics (I'm a visual learner; books aren't always the greatest teachers for me) and I refused to stop until I had it right, no matter how messy my first sleeves turned out (the first one was very messy!)

When it comes to making designs, I just mix a couple of colours and alternate them, or use them at random, or just use one colour entirely. I'm only just starting to figure out how to make stripes.

Mildew worries, how concerned should i be about dread-rot? and what do you think of Dr. Bronners?


Dread Products

I have the lavender Dco Brons at home. Is there any way I can tell if my water is hard or not? I never understood what hard or soft water was.

Dreading Methods

I would just leave them alone, to be honest :) They're still young! They'll lock up, just need more time. You'll get there <3

Introduce Yourself

I don't find anyone has been really rude to you on this thread; they've simply informed you that this may not be the place to look for information on becoming a loctician. That's all.

Gathering in or near Quebec.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I definitely have a friend who may want to come, but I won't know for sure if he can until closer to the date. I don't have facebook, so I'm not sure I'd be able to see the page. When you figure out the dates you'll be there for, I'd love to know so I can try and plan accordingly as time gets closer :)

Cool. So far we are three in the car (you included if you can) if you have any body else that would like to come I might have room for one more. I will keep you informed for sure. The group rainbowQuebec is onFacebook if you want more info.

Thank you so much! I would definitely love a ride. I'll get back to you when I have a better idea of when school starts up for me in August to see if I'd be able to stay for a week or not. But if I can, I'll definitely accept the ride offer!

It's in the Temiscouata valley (Bas-Saint-Laurent region). The exact place is not yet determined the rainbow counsel said that they will probably decide in June. The gathering is during the full moon of August ( the 13) I think it last a month a few weeks before and after. I will keep you informed. If you need a ride there I can give you one. I will be going for a week.

Jdwood, can you let me know when/where the gathering you found out about is? I'd be really interested in going if I can manage it!
