but everyone wants in so if everyone starts their own discussion, then it will clog up the main page discussions, and that is meant for dread related discussions, so sorry but we should move this to the trade circle group, : )

Pay it Forward


General Talk

I thought our community needed more fun and creativity. So I decided to start a pay it forward.

This is how it works:

Pay it Forward in 2011: I, Mia, promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They may, in turn, post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their discussion The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011. :)

SE: Maybe we could create a new category for "Pay it Forwards"

Peace & much love,

Mia

For those who backcombed they're dreads


Dread Maintenance

Honestly, i woudnt worry too much

my experience was that they mostly all came unbackcombed

and the i jus left em alone to naturaly dread from there.

Good LUCK

member dreading is a journey

the less you worry about it the greater the journey

Peace & love,

Mia

So would it be better to massage the soap into the scalp to keep from detangling the hair?

Mia Elizabeth said:

Hey glad you are starting or thinking of starting your journey.

I started 8/23/10 and my goal was to wait as long as i could before washing.

well as long as i could, turned out to be 3 days. LOL

i did a baking soda and apple cider vinegar wash by filling up a small bucket with water while in the shower and adding the bs and the acv :)

definitely don't run your hand through your hair because u will detangle it and dreads=tangles.

at first i would tie a plastic bag around my head so that i wouldn't get my locks wet when i showered but wasnt going to wash them.

now it doesn't really matter to me. & i wash them whenever it feels necessary. every other day or every three days.

Goodluck. Peace & Love,

Mia

GREETINGS and BLESSINGS...


Introduce Yourself

Welcome.

My advice would be to just let them be.

I know you want a manicured look but unfortunately my experience is that natural dreads are not that in any way shape or form.

so im not sure how u can have the best of both worlds.

I am excited to see your progress though, keep us posted on your decisions. :)

Peace & love,

Mia

Trichotillomania and Locks. 1 month old - Crochet method start.


Introduce Yourself

thanks so much for sharing.& i was wondering why you personally starting ripping your hair out, was it caused by stress.I have a habit of picking at my face and scalp when i get nervous/stressed. & like you i sometimes do it without noticing.Peace & Love,Mia
