New tnr dreads.


Dread Maintenance

I'm sad you lost patience :(, the natural way is such a beautiful thing to experience if you can just convince yourself to let go and stop combing( which is way easier said than done). But yea I knew SE would be all over this lol and he's already said it you have to keep your hair clean! not only will you stink but it will be very oily which doesnt help the dreading process at all. You want clean dry hair. I've heard alot of peoples tnr's end up falling out then dreading, then they wished they just leftem natural. I'd recommend the baking soda and vinegar rinse, you don't scrub you just pour it over your hair so your not touchin it to much. I love it

Baking soda wash vs dreadlock shampoo bar


Dread Maintenance

I have used Dr. Bronners bar soap and liquidsoap and I to have felt alot of build up it seems from them. I cansqueeze my dread then rub my finger together and it feels alittlegrimey.I'm not to sure how hard my water is but this past week I havejust beendoing the bs wash with no acv rinse and it has gotten rid of any build up I felt and they feel nice and dry. I feel like the bs wash cleans my hair better than anything but I love building up a lather with the soaps, it just feels cleaner. Also since I have been dreading and washing with residue free shampoos and what not I have noticed my hair drys ten times faster than it used to without dreads using regular shampoos.

Ends of my dreads balling up : ) but then falling off!


Dread Maintenance

Yea this has happened to me quite abit too. Mine ball up on the end and look like little dingle berries lol, it's kinda annoying but I try to just let them be. I've pulled one out cause it was a big ball hanging from like two strands of hair. I think it's happening like SE said, you shed hair and as it's falling out it gets caught up in the end.

the beauty of the early messy stage of natural neglect dreadlocks


Dreadlock Picture Gallery

To me it's like my hair is alive now, it's so cool to watch it curl and knot up and shrink like it's crawling back to my head lol. To watch it everyday and see it change it's like how they hell is this happening haha.

Wow SE I was suprised and honored I made the cut lol! You have been such an inspiration to me, without you I may of never found the courage to take the leap into dreadom. I honestly never new that u could do this naturally. I thought like most people without dreads that u had to do something or add something to your hair. It just never felt right so I never did it, till I found this site. Awesome little montage u put together!

acv rinse for flakey scalp????


Dread Maintenance

The coldwater is better for your scalp, hot water drys it out cold water don't, so if you got dandruff the cold water helps.

Too old for dreads??????


General Talk

My wife didn't want me to start dreads either, she says they look like nasty matted hair she calls them ropes. She even acts grossed out when they touch her, she says get them ropes off me haha.But I've been intrigued by dreads forever and I have been growing my hair 4-5 yrs and was growing sick of taking care of it and wasjust ready to shave it off until I found this site and learned how easy it was to let your hair dread. So it's been nearly 7 months now and i've never been happier with my hair. It's nice to see older people starting dreads cause even at 28 I felt like I better do this now before I get to old haha. I feel differently after seeing all you old farts lol j/k.

General Talk

Id like to see a update from the OP, just checked her page and it don't look like she's been on in awhile. Wonder if she gave in to the pressures of society?
