Dog ear dreads


General Questions

every few weeks i'll have one dread that sticks straight out wherever it is on my head...when i look closely at them it seems like they are just knotting right at the root and its forcing them out in whichever direction...they always look completely ridiculous but i've found its a great sign and usually that dread is going through huge improvement and then it goes back to normal...probably just mean that dread is progressing, nothign to worry about

So I know most people on here are opposed to dreadheadhq and knotty boy, but what do you think about their shampoos?


Dread Products

i've used dreadhead shampoo and can't really find anything negative to say about it...now i use dr. bronners almond but not because of a bad experience with the other shampoo

Feeling Discouraged


Introduce Yourself

Hi,I started my dread about 3 months ago and Im starting to feel like my progress has slowed greatly...I started my dreads by backcombing and using dreadhead wax....about 2 weeks in i found this site decided i wanted no wax bought the wax remover from this site and washed the wax out...this seemed to work completely, im not an expert but my dreads were soft and fluffy and much different texturally than before...anyway since then ive done pretty much nothing, i wash about every other day with dr bronners because my hair gets greasy quickly if i dont wash it often...i have been touching and playing and rolling and twisting and so on all my dreads and im now reading more and more that that is bad and im going to try to stop with that...also my dreads in the back are pretty good but the ones on top have split in two from there originals (some at least) and now i have some totally undreaded sections that are very thin...i have very curly hair and my dreads are still curling which makes them look even less like dreads, will they straighten as they get more dense? If anybody has any advice for me or just some assurance that is part of the normal process it would be greatly appreciated...

Vegetarian, to be or not to be?


Dreads and Diets

I just started thinking the same thing and over the past few months I went through a little bit of a progress....at the end of august i gave up all pork and pig products. At first this was difficult and bacon just looked soo enticing but since I really got completely over. Then about 3 weeks ago i finally had that aha moment where I gave up all red meat... So as of now I am still eating white meat like chicken or turkey and fish but i am eating vegetarian as often as possible...ultimately by gradually giving things up i have been able to get over the idea of pig say altogether, i dont feel any desire for it at all. Also i don't feel as if I'm forcing anything, when it became natural that i stop eating red meat i did. I plan on doing the same for chicken and turkey when the time is right i will know and stop and act accordingly. As much as I am an animal lover and all that the benefits spiritually of not eating meat have been much greater in the areas of discipline and getting away from indulgent desires. While the animal arguments are all very important, you will find yourself growing spiritually in the process in a fashion that may be different than you expected.Anyway my advice is not to force full vegetarianism all at once IF you arent ready. Because ultimately you'll end up not liking it and giving up. Embrace change as it takes you, if you feel wrong about something don't do it and eventually it will follow that your desire for that thing wanes as well.Hope this was helpful
