JUDGE


Introduce Yourself

yeah, SE said it- esp parents n fam members lol. or maybe they just arent afraid to say what some other ppl are prolly thinking too! haha.seems my whole family always expects this ultra clean-shaven, "preppy" appearance, n i admit that over the years i would try to conform to this more or less simply cuz i didn't really care greatly either way and it kept me from hearing the onslaught lol... but truth be told such a "style" never felt comfortable or authentic to me. i find it funny that im a 25 yr old independent adult with a family of my own and my elders feel it's necessary to bombard me with comments and suggestions on what to do with my own hair, clothing, body etc all the time. their intentions and attitudes are benign enough, but it is jus not in good taste imho. i wouldn't do that to them, or my younger fam members, kids etc. in a way, growing out my hair and letting it lock (besides honoring my own views and choices) is a hilarious form of backlash to all that nonsense. i'm crushing their dreams of me having a hairstyle like those example posters in supercuts salons lmfao. man, bottom-line... f*** what anybody else says! n good for u for sticking to what feels good to you bro

"Grandpa's Wonder Pine Tar Soap" is it dread/ing friendly?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Saw this soap at Whole Foods n picked up a bar, it claims to be good for ridding dandruff, which is something i just haven't been able to rid using a number of things and methods. Here is the ingredients:

Coconut Oil, palm oil, purified water, pine tar oil (Pinus palustris), vegetable glycerin

Thanks :)

Washing dreadING hair


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

So if your hair is not yet dreaded but dreads are beginning to form, do you want to wash even less (in terms of frequency and/or how thoroughly) than you would if your hair was actually in dreads? I am undergoing some trial n error wit this. About a week ago it seemed i had made great progress all the sudden and it was exciting... my hair is short but people were like "ohh i see, your growing dreads nice" etc lol, n of course i could see n feel them coming along. Sounds gross, but I had refrained from washing (other than some salt water spraying to wet down my bed-head some mornings) and it seemed this was the difference that caused things to speed along. I went about 1.5- 2 weeks no washing. Oddly enough, dandruff actually decreased, and no noticeable bad smell etc. One day I noticed my hair had a very slight oily feeling and i was thinking a thorough wash would do some good since it had been so long. Washed thoroughly w/ liquid Dr. Bronner's (tea tree, diluted as suggested) (and in past i have preferred the bar form as shampoo, going back to before i ever started dreading my hair). I did not srub or "comb" through my hair i was gentle about it, i rinsed thoroughly. Maybe this part is where i went so wrong- I felt my hair being able to swing while wet when i was moving my head...for some reason i decided to "shake dry" like a wet dog would instead of having to take a towel to my head or deal with many hours of wet hair if i were to air dry. I think this shook apart knots that were forming, that was the end result of the wash anyway, whether or not this step was most responsible. My hair went back to square one almost : ( . Also- my hair felt way more oily than before i washed it afterward, and dandruff returned and like tripled over the following couple days. I washed a few more days in a row with just water to try to rid this oily feel, and one day i did a heavy apple cider rinse for the dandruff/scalp distress (helped). I have now gone a couple days without washing and my hair is starting to get dready again (have used some light salt water spraying to help it dry out- this doesnt seem to irritate my scalp at all oddly enough). Dandruff is subsiding. Picked up a bar of eucalyptus dr. bronner's, i think tea tree and my scalp dont agree at all lol. I like the way the bar is foamy and lathery instead of watery and oily, it seems to rinse out better? anyone know a good general guideline for washing frequency at this stage of the game? any personal experiences/insights? any/all appreciated :) I don't want to regress days/weeks of progress from a single fn wash! geez. lol.

trust nature, trust your self/Self


Introduce Yourself

Trust and rejoice in the wisdom of letting nature work through you and for you (and you for it). Now when it comes to dreading we all have individual differences and experiences in the journey, but a fact that remains is that letting your hair dread itself naturally works- for everyone, if one lets it. I'm obviously not stating anything new here lol but just affirming this truth based on my direct experience thus far. Had i not stumbled 'pon this place i may not have known to go the natural route, i find it no coincidence that i did. my head was shaved bald at the beginning of the summer and now, as it enters winter- it is beginning to officially sprout itty bitty baby dreads as it grows :) . So we arm ourselves with the basic knowledge of lil "do's and don'ts" and hopefully utilize our own powers of basic attention and intuition, and then with that in place one simply lets go.... and trust and positivity carry you leisurely down stream. Big thanks to Soaring Eagle and everyone here :)
