i think the scarf is a good idea, can't really believe i didn't think of it. thanks cora=]

i don't want to have to sue the state SE(but if it comes down to it, i damn will), i don't even want to have a hearing in the first place. i just want them to leave me alone. they say some pretty degrading things. i don't want to wake up to that every morning anymore.

dreads, cops, and court.


Life Issues Facing Dreads

so my ex and his new gf have been harassing me via facebook, texting and phone calls. i haven't been with him since the beginning of LAST year. anywho, all last week i went from sheriff's station to sheriff's station to the court house trying to get him to leave me alone. i finally succeeded in filing a temporary restraining order against him. now i have to go to a hearing and present my case.... i'm pretty nervous. he's extremely clean cut compared to me. i'm already going to take out my piercings for that day but idk what to do about my hair. its a fucking mess and the police and court officials aren't exactly known to be supportive of an individual's locking journey. idk if its ok to wear a tam there, if i should just try to put them up or let them be unruly, or if i should just break down and comb them out AGAIN. i love my dreads, but this mofo scares me. i can't risk not having a permanent restraining order, and discrimination is the ONLY way i won't get it, he made his threats perfectly clear and i kept the evidence. i just don't know how to deal with this as i've not had any good experiences with the cops and court this past week. they've talked down to me, stared at me like i was a freak and even insinuated i was lying about the whole thing. any advice is greatly appreciated.

Life Issues Facing Dreads

Beads and Your Dreads


Dread Accessories

i leave my beads in most of the time. sometimes i get a hair up my butt and i take them out... i have a lot of wraps and i've been told that you can leave those in, but i've been taking them out and putting new ones in just in case.. the only piece i take out everytime i shower is a metal bell that my little sister gave me to tie into my hair, i havent sealed it with anything yet so i'm kinda scared it will rust if i leave it

Ancient cultural history of dreadlocks and their significance


History and Religious Significance

i LOVE the fairylock reference!!! when i was little i only brushed the top layers of my hair so eventually i ended up with a good sized mat behind my right ear. my great grandma(she was extremelyyyyyy superstitious) made a HUGE fuss about never brushing fairies knots out, that they're special for little girls... it turned into a huge debate and ended with my grandma cutting it straight off my head. much to my great grandma's dismay, she really wanted it left in, and to my mother's horror, who really just wanted it brushed out. lol it was covered by the rest of my hair, but i had a tufty bald spot for a good handful of months=]

Did you just imply that I don't wash my hair?


General Talk

when most people see my dreads they assume i don't wash my hair. i just say i wash my hair about 3 times a week and if they push the issue i tell them my hair is probably cleaner than theirs because i don't have products in it at all.

it doesn't bug me unless its a family member that says it. most of my family has been excepting but a few have tried to put me on blast.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i've used jason shampoo, i think it works fine for the most part but i stopped using it all the time because some ofmy locks seemed to get a little more loose and i started wondering if it had too many conditioners in it or something...

i still use it when im at my bfs house, even though i'm still not sure about the ingredients, and it hasnt caused any problems when i don't use it all the time.

am i washing too often??


Dread Maintenance

that's what i thought! this dude totally caught me off guard though. and my dreads are pretty new, so yeah theyre kinda frizzy. plus i have a lottttttt of loose hairs.... it kinda looks like a dreaded most of my hair but left a bunch out that just does whatever it wanted.

i was pretty scared when he told me. there's no way i could not wash my hair for a week, i'd get all itchy and itwould just feel wrong.

I have never, ever heard of that before, lol. Hair breaking from washing it? Strange.
I wash mine three times a week and I haven't noticed dryness? Maybe hes mistaken because sometimes newer dreads have that frizzed look that can be mistaken for dryness? o.0
