what jobs do u people do


General Talk

Well now I want to research this jobless business, but currently I work in an office setting, I'm a customer service team leader. I walked in the day after kick-starting my dread journey to the only person knowing what I was up to beingmy boss, (who keeps up with the latest fashion, highlights her hair, goes tanningandlooks like a modern barbie doll) asking if I had dreadlocks. I told her I was going to, yes, and she replied "as long as you don't come in smelling like a dirty hippie I don't care." That was that. My co-workers are excited to see the progress and ask questions and compliment my creative ways of styling them. So you do what you want and don't worry about what other people think and you'll be just fine. :)

dread accelerator sea salt and lemon juice


Dread Products

Good to know about the lightening of color with the lemon juice, I knew it did in the sun but didn't know about heat. Makes sense I suppose :)

who is doing this for spirtual reasons? and what are they


History and Religious Significance

I also love nature, dreading because I have wanted to for a looong time and now have some great info on how to. I also refuse to have to try and keep up with the latest hair styles and products. There are probably many other reasons, I know I posted more in a similar discussion to this one, but that is what comes to mind right now. :)

General Questions

The most odd things can affect the way your head feels, what you eat, smell, stress, anything you are exposed to, even the way you wear your hair can take some time for your head to adjust for sure. When I had long hair straight and got migraines I was encouraged to cut it, it didn't help btw, but that is why I asked if anyhthing else had changed... good luck to you :)

I don't know, I mix the 3 and have no problems, but everyone is different so this is a possibility...

tea tree oil can be very drying so watch how much you use. i know that some oil combinations can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, etc. you might want to look into the different ones your using and make sure they can be used together.

General Questions

try rubbing rather than scratching, headaches are odd, anything else you've changed? I am a migraine sufferer and have only had one since beginning my dread journey so I have to wonder if something else has changed since you started your journey...

Am I Alone In This Revelation?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

You are not alone! I don't know how much it has to do with the dreads for me, because I'm only 4 months in...but I had to tell my "best friend" the other day that our friendship wasn't working how it is right now. She was being opinionated, judgemental, patronizing and just plain unfair to me, like I need her to be my life coach or something. Oddly enough, when I expected her to react defensively and get upset, she apologized and tried to understand and has agreed to work with me because our friendship is important to her. In the past I have just let these things go and pretended she hadn't acted how she did toward me, but I finally felt like I had to share my feelings. I feel more open, maybe it is that "time" in my life where I realize the bull sh*t has to go, genuine is it, or maybe these locks really connect to spirituality...
