Am I Alone In This Revelation?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I am not even 3 full weeks into letting my hair do it's thing and dread and I am already amazed. I truly thought I was at peace with myself and those in my life before I made the decision to go on this journey, but now I am seeing and feeling the changes within myself and am the happiest I've ever been in my life. I have never felt so... satisfied? The best way I can describe the feeling is it's pretty much like finally, I'm done wanting. I mean, obviously there's still things I "want" or wish for, like for people to be more loving, forgiving, tolerating, fair, and honest, but I'm also much more accepting to the things I cannot change. So whereas I used to be what I now see as overly-critical, I am now very accepting of the fact that I can't change that people are brainwashed or narrow-minded, misinformed/uneducated, or just plain have opinions/beliefs that I completely disagree with. I am very content spending my free time alone, because although I may be accepting, it doesn't mean I want those kind of people involved in my life. But what I'm really trying to get at is that since beginning this journey, I have become the surest I've ever been of myself, my life, and the people I have in it. I love it. :)

Dying my hair??


General Questions

Okay, I've read these forums a lot and have read a few things about this, but I still want to ask to get the best answer possible. As of today I am 3 weeks into my natural/"neglect" method dread babies. I'd say I've made very good progress in little time (you can check out my blog or photo album to see) but I really would like to dye my hair. I have it dyed now, the roots are just growing in and it's getting to look a bit tacky to me so I wanna touch it up. I know it's best to not use the conditioner included in the kit obviously, but when I rinse should I do a quick wash with Dr. Bronner's or just plain water? And is it even alright to dye my hair? I've read some places that it helps it knot, but other things have said it can hurt the process. What's the truth and am I really better off waiting a few months before doing it?

Thanks :)

spraying sea salt on hair to help it tangle??


Dreading Methods

Well, I've started using it in a spray, and it seems it could be slightly helping the locking process, but more-so it is helping my normally oily scalp/hair. :)

Dreading Methods

Thanks. :) At the beginning of the first week, I was washing my hair daily, but now I'm washing it three times a week.

yer sea salt works well after i have washed my hair i pour sea salt rince ( 2 table spoons, then add 2 letres of water) then leave for a bit then rinse out. Works well for me. By the way your hair is looking good and making fast progress. How often do you wash your hair by the way? I wash mine often and seems to be knotting fast.

Peace x

Introduce Yourself

^Or how about the BEST way to create a lock is patience and letting nature take its course? No chemicals, no combs or brushes. I'm not saying you can't give dreadlocks, but I can tell anybody who wants healthy hair that going natural is the BEST route to take. I was going to use DreadHeadHQ products on my hair and backcomb mine, but I am so glad I found this site and decided to go natural. Wax, regardless of its purpose or ingredients is not MEANT for your hair, therefore it literally is unnecessary. I'm so happy with my natural little babies that I wouldn't recommend any other way to get dreads! Except T&R if you're super impatient, but even then, try to suck it up. I have, I'm only a week in and I'm 1) very happy with the progress made and 2) completely at peace with the fact that my journey has only just begun. I say save your money and take a wonderful physical and mental journey! :)

Dreading Methods

Is it true that if you spray a water and sea salt solution on your hair it will help it tangle? If so, what is a good amount of sea salt to use?

thanks!

dreads and jobs


dreads jobs employment issues

I am a direct support professional in the field of developmental disabilities & deal with behaviors on a daily basis. Since being in this field, my hair has always caught my clients' attention for whatever reason. I've been yanked around by my hair before, but I've learned that with certain behaviors, it's better to just either wear my hair up or keep it covered. But then there's the clients who literally throw a fit if I do cover my hair, and do anything in their power to uncover it. Luckily, I've done well at handling incidents involving my hair, & I hope it stays that way as my locks come in. So far it seems like my clients are even more intrigued by my hair as it's changing, but they've remained gentle. :)

physical therapy wont matter one bit, i know ppl in the field with dreads.. the only way it would matter is with mr (mental retardation) or severe developmental/behavoiral problems if they like to grab a handhul lf hair and pull
