what jobs do u people do


General Talk

I'm a photographer, and my father has a friend who is a fellowlawyer and he has had locks for about ten years.

I have a friend of mine with locks and he is a computer tech.

Jobs are never out of the question when you have locks. You just have to make sure you look professional when you are looking for work, just like you would even if you didn't have locks.

should i increase my washing?


Dread Maintenance

Acrylic is a decent alternative, but just be warned that you will have to keep an eye out for fuzzies till it gets worn in and also, after each wash , it may put a little electric charge in your locks.

I also know I'll probably be shanked for this suggestion, but I'll do it anyway. Have you considered a last resort plan yet? If not, I might suggest backcombing. Yes, it's going to be long and tedius and if you have a tender head slightly aggrivating, but if nothing works after a long battle of trying to get natural dreadlocks, this might be a decent kickstart for your hair in that direction. Mine is very fine and that's the route I had to take after trying to go natural for a time without it. After the backcombing though, I haven't had to touch unless I want to and it's behaved very well.

Introduction ...


Introduce Yourself

Welcome to the site!

I am sorry to hear about your problems with the school, if you go to a private school, then sadly you will have to listen.

public schools are a different story however. We actually have a forum on here that talks about that. Maybe it will be of assistance if you have interest in continuing your lock journey and want to bring the issue up to the school.

mothers...


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

My mom has not been fond of the idea of me getting locks. She blatently said so, then started calling me a few derogatory terms. Later she apologized, telling me that she was sorry for saying the things she had and that she still loved me.

This was a week ago.

Today I came into town to see her and we had a pretty okay afternoon. At least until it was about time to go. She started in on my hair again. I was patient and listened to her say her bit about how wrong it was, about how I was going to be looked down on, and how everyone would think I was either a hooker or a junkie and I would never get a job. I then began to respond to her and explain my side. This didn't happen and soon an argument broke out. Me begging her to listen and her telling me to get rid of them or she'd rip 'em out herself.

This all ended with her saying that, "until you got rid of those nasty locks, I don't want to see your nasty face."

My mother is a...unique individual, so I know that this won't last. But still, it really hurts, and is something that gives me second thoughts on what I am doing.

I guess I just feel like I am between a rock and a hard place, and was wondering if anyone else has every had to put up with this kind of insanity and how the hell they lived through it.

Lush Products on Dreadlocks?


Dread Products

Well, the little bar of shampoo that I was given was a karma komba.

I used it and it feels nice. I also noticed it helps with scalp itching issues

Lush Products on Dreadlocks?


Dread Products

I believe this is the proper area.

I was passing through Baton Rouge on my way to New Orleans a week ago and decided to stop and take a break. while I was walking around one of their strip areas I found a store called Lush, what seemed to be an eco friendly version of bath and body works. I was very impressed with the things that they were selling and the lady there was very sincere and excited about the things she had to show us. Then I found that they had a bar shampoo, residue free, at the store. she informed me that a lot of the people who worked for Lush had locs and used the product. She sent me home with a sample of several products and a bunch of great information.Once I had a chance to see what the place was about I was pleased, and have considered getting the shampoo there.

I guess my question is, has anyone ever used the Lush Shampoo bar on their locs and if so, has it been a negative or positive experience?

Dread Maintenance Occurance - Honest Usage on this Site


Dread Maintenance

I will not deny, I am Obsessive compulsive, so I do maintenance.

But to me maintenance is like meditation.

I palmroll and tip rub when my hands are idle and occassionally root rub if the hair at the base is long.

I feel as long as they aren't done in access it's not a bad thing.

But I refuse to put anything in my hair other than shampoo to wash them anymore.
