Excited 4 the Dreaded Journey


Introduce Yourself

Sup All... new here and on a renewed journey to dreads... I have some "concrete" ideas as to why i feel so compelled to let my hair grow and lock up, and yet a big part of it remains mysterious . For both reasons i grasp and reasons i don't/won't lol, i am HERE and it's nice to have access to a community and network of info n discussion w/ folks sharing the dread experience. So big ups to everyone on that and i give out a welcome to everyone to contact me for whatever reason. So where i-m at currently...my hair is pretty short, i had shaved it late spring/early summer... since my hair's return lol i haven't combed or used conditioners or chemical soaps....it's several inches long and i can see the beginning stages of dread formation occuring. One thing i am doing now as of the last few days (and learned from this site) is sleeping w/ a tight-fitting wool beanie (lil too snug for my head/hair/maximum comfort but it keeps it on at night while i sleep instead finding on the floor next to my bed lol). I am wearing it during the day as well, but not all day or everyday of course. I plan to find a more loose-fitting one to sport during the day. Ha i am wearing it in my pic where i'm holding my daughter, it kinda looks like a giant nug of herb lol. Anywayyy, this has pretty much solved the problem of my tossing and turning at night "combing" out coils and knots forming by the time i wake up in the morning. Best "dread product" out there imho haha. As a side-effect the wool seems to keep my hair feeling soft and less frizzy. If i need to i will utilize the baking soda wash but right now rinsing thoroughly w/ cold water is working well enough. I was concerned that not using a soap/shampoo would lead to my hair smelling bad but thus far i have not had this problem at all. Sweet. Well enough of my rambling, Bless up All! Lata~

have you EVER used ANY dreadheadhq ot knotty boy products?


Dread Products

have used dr bronners in bar n liquid form as well, good stuff n very reasonably priced

Danny said:
the shampoo (bar form) I like personally, however it is overpriced n it can be drying on the scalp yes. It does have a nice smell n lather n mix of herbals n if u keep it dry when not using it lasts for reasonable amount of time. Due to the price it is not my top pick, my currentshampoo is the BS wash w/ tea tree and rosemary, leaves my scalp the freshest it seems

Vegetarian, to be or not to be?


Dreads and Diets

I have been a veg since 2007. There have been a few periods tho in which is tried eating meat again and it jus didn't feel right on all levels when I did. I truly enjoy the vegetarian lifestyle and the benefits and personal growth it encourages. Current day I am tryingore and more to further transition from vegetarianism to veganism. I feel stronger and more vibrant physically without eating meat. I am more calm mentally and emotionally, and feel more aligned spiritually. It can be less convenient at times but overall it is honestly very easy to maintain a meatless diet and both enjoy your food as well as take in proper, or perhaps even superior, nutrition

Great post. New here and this is first one i've read...feeling glad that i did. Well for now i'll spare all the background story with me lol and just tell where i'm at currently...my hair is several inches long and it's very thick, growing out from a shaved head in late spring/early summer. I have been using natural/dread friendly soap to cleanse my hair throughout this time and don't use a comb. My hair is very thick and wavy (caucasian hair) and i can see how it is slowly entering a pre-dreading phase if you will, i can take clumps and twist them and make dread-like twists and it can get pretty nappy and such. The main thing that interferes with dreading that i can see is sleeping at night! It presses out clumps that are forming etc and seems to just take things back to square one some days lol. Also washing... what is the best WAY to wash them and how how often (roughly)? I've come to intuit that trying to be brief when wetting the hair and just using small amount of soap distributed over the hair and gently pressed to the scalp and then rinsing as minimally as possible while getting out all the soap is good. Drying- i'm trying to figure that out too. Obviously ruffling with a towel isn't good, and so i press it dry and then try to let it air dry, sometimes i use a hairdryer on no-heat setting if i am impatient. Any tips or advice is highly appreciated! thanks
