Hats. Hats, Hats, and nothing but Hats!


Dread Accessories

I understand that for the most part. Not sure if I have an elastic, though. And yes, the palm tree cap is a genius idea!

Take a hole punch and put holes on either side. Attach elastic (kinda like a party hat.)
When wearing it you can have the strap going to the back of your neck (not under the chin) and arrange your dreads in front of the strap and behind it so that it's not visible.

Can you give me an example of this bun thing? I've never tried doing anything like that.

Question for the you guys out there: How in the world do you manage to put on hats? Can you? I realize some of us have thinner dreadlocks than other, but in my case, they're pretty darn thick. Now, I've got a graduation tomorrow, and I'm not really sure how I can fit this cap on my head. The thing's an XL, too... Any ideas on how I might make this work?

youtube racism


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Now, I couldn't quite make that out. Something along the lines of dreading to be "different" and a lack of culture or something... But, uh, SE, for future reference, I wouldn't take any Youtube comments into heavy consideration. Youtube comments are literally some of the dumbest, most ridiculous text you'll ever read online. They get much worse than what you got. And about the eggs... What moron would actually think that's a good idea? I just don't know anymore.

I need help with dandruff


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

What SE said. Try adding some peppermint, tea tree, or rosemary(better yet all three) to your soap. It'll so wonders over time. When I first started, I had really bad dandruff(due to prior circumstances). Currently, I just use Dr. Bronner's and some tea tree oil, and my condition has improved tenfold. Actually, I can hardly say I have dandruff anymore. Just try adding some oils into the mix.

my first comment and it wasn't nice:(


General Talk

Not to be rude, but is it wrong that I laughed while reading this? Not at the fact that you were insulted but how every time I read something in quotations I had that sort of typical black girl voice playing in my head. Made me laugh for a moment. I tend to get the same thing with black people. "Wow. What are you doing? You need to twist your hair. When was the last time you twisted?", etc etc. Heck, I went to the mall once(I really dislike the mall), and every single black person I passed either laughed to themselves(although it was pretty obvious what they were laughing at) rudely, or just gave me odd looks(you know the kind). Usually I just shrug it off. Tends to work better than trying to talk sense to the other person. Don't get me wrong, though, it's not just black people. I get these comments and questions everywhere. Heather, I really wouldn't take it too harshly. There are plenty of ignorant people out there, and you're bound to run into plenty. It's just something we all have to live with. Honestly though, learning to laugh at this kind of thing helps a lot. I mean, I laughed just reading this. Just wait until random people start complimenting you(at the same mall I mentioned earlier, some random guy with a group of girls shouted "I WANT YOUR HAIR!" I smiled and laughed). You'll start to just enjoy yourself regardless. In short, chin up, Heather. You've got the patience for dreadlocks, now you just need the backbone. ;)

They smell amazing...you will love them. I have been using them for awhile. My favorite scent is patchouli vanilla lavender. I also like her nag champa. I have used karma and hippie scents. I just ordered dragonsblood and orange tea tree and am excited to smell them. The scent stays will you and you get little bursts of it throughout the day as you move your head...heavenly<3

Would you mind giving me some suggestions on which I should try out? And out of curiosity, can I use this on my head, because judging from the description, it sounds like it would smell phenomenal. http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/Mayleesgarden/3660653Any comments?

So, uh, should I split this or what?


Dread Maintenance

Might have been my initial twist and rip. Wasn't too worried about it, though. I figured I should just wait anyway. Thanks, SE.

thats usualy from forced sectioning they may have wanted to be 2 dreads u forced to be 1 it should work itself out over time


Patrick said:

The congo'd portion's actually longer than that, but you get the idea. Also, if a dread splits a little at the roots, I should just leave it, right? I mean there's no sense in splitting 8-10 inches of hair from the roots. I have two that look sort of like this.
