Too old for dreads??????


General Talk

HA Yeah I know! I've had so many people I've known for years say that. Honestly can't believe people would think I would have a hairstyle I couldn't wash!

LOL ! Yeah - after the initial "you're too old", I got the "and they're dirty - you can't wash them" comments too. I shot that down right away. I was surprised because as long as we have been married - going on twenty years this fall, I can't believe my hubby would think that I would do something with my hair that I couldn't wash - YUCK!!!

And Lonnie - I'm with you - down with shoes!!!! (Except in the winter - it get's cold in Michigan - ha ha)

Sounds like your husband and my stepmom would get along well. She gave me her loving opinion about my desire to dread my hair... LOL-I feel your pain! I did some research for my self of course and as I came across information I thought would be good for her to read I forwarded the links to her. It sounds like your husband just needs to understand your decision as he is wound up with the many negative associations and myths surrounding dreading. My boyfriend wasn't too hot about me dreading at first, but through conversation he has now accepted my decision. And NO you're not too old! Life is far too short to be taken too seriously. It sounds like your heart is in the right place and like Dready Bear said-no Hello Kitty beads and you'll be just fine. ;)

Ideas on exfoliating your scalp?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

So obviously since we with dreads can't brush our hair, how do you guys exfoliate? I'm thinking about picking up a hair pick or something and seeing if that helps, can you do it lightly with your nails? questions questions

COtton stuck in dreads! :S


General Talk

I can't imagine a small amount of cotton would cause any harm, basically all dreads have a small amount of lint in them and that's perfectly fine.

Natural Dreads- can I tie up my hair?


Dread Maintenance

Okay I know I read all over the place that palm rolling doesn't do anything but I must strongly disagree!!! As some of you know some of my dreads are all natural, some are backcomed and left alone, and some are backcombed and then palmrolled lightly. And ALL of my palm rolled dreads are perfectly cylindrical and straight, while my other ones are curly and loopy and crazy. (I love the variety though) So I'm tellin you guys, palm rollings gotta do something 0.0

General Questions

Yea I've had my dreadies for a year and a half and I skateboard like 5 hours a day, it can get pretty lame especially the day after I shower and I go sweat like crazy. It definitely doesn't interfere though if anything I think it helps cause sweat is just salt mostly, but it's kinda gross
