wax remover from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

This is great news...I'm so sick of hearing the heartbreaking stories of those who have either ignorantly waxed, or *not listened* and waxed anyway...having to cut their locks off...finally, a chem-free solution! :D

Dread Products

@Britany...I never had dandruff...until I used KB's blasted shampoo bar...only took one wash, and battled blasted dandruff from then on...you're right, KB is just as bad.

will a bead round out a dread?


Dread Maintenance

The question has already been answered, but I wanted to share a funny story on the topic of "flat, paddle-like" dreading...I had one of them on one of my back locks for a while and I had someone comment that it looked like a 'dag' (one of those flat mats that sheep get on their butts), only she added, that at least mine didn't have poop in it like sheep have...I replied, with a straight face, 'well actually, it does, poop really makes great dreads, and it's all-natural. I believe in natural locks.' The look of horror on her face was priceless and so worth making myself sound like a filthy poop-headed pig hahahah

Crochet - Newbie needs advice!


Dreading Methods

My best advice: throw the crochet hook in the bin and slap whomever the person is who offered to crochet them for you. I have oily hair, too, without dreads I must wash every day...but with locks, my scalp gets used to not getting washed too often, like only once a week at most (longer intervals in winter lol). You won't need to wash every day. I didn't, and my dreads locked up great, would start noticing them getting oily after about 2 weeks...like I said, your scalp gets used to it...Submit, scalp! Submit! LOL

wrapping dreads while sleeping


Dread Maintenance

Wrapping them to sleep is good if you have a pillow case that is gonna cause fluffies and stuff to accumulate in your locks. I prevented this by getting a satin pillowcase. I also found that tams and wraps were uncomfortable(for me) to sleep in, and my locks really locked-up well just by moving my head around during the night while I slept. In other words, I'm an advocate of keeping the locks free to move about at nightlol

Dreadheads and Cats


General Talk

I love cats. I have a pedigreed persian named Zeno, who developed her own set of locks over the past winter LOL!

Yet another dread story :P


Introduce Yourself

I'm far, far away from Canada, but I just went to craft-type shops where you can get single or bags of beads, made sure the hole was big enough to fit over my locks, and voila! Managed to get all kinds of awesome beads this way...whole metal, metal filigree, wooden - plain and patterned. Also, when in thrift stores, I would occasionally find necklaces/bracelets that I'd harvest for the beads. Bought some of those metal wraparound thingeys on ebay. Just a matter of being creative...love the idea of car seat beads, SE ;D

adding hair from the misses...


Introduce Yourself

You may have some difficulty keeping her hair in your locks for some time (won't matt-in properly for ages). I used to have a couple different people's hair in my locks - people who meant a lot to me. I had used two dreadlock end from friends with locks themselves (we swapped) and sewed them onto the ends of our own locks, and one friend gave me a few strands of her hair which i weaved into one of my lockslol

What method is this?


Dreading Methods

I love the rip n pull method (what I call it, when you do this minus all the twisting of the lock, don't seem to cause as much damage, and worked wonders on my dead-straight hair) :)
