Dread accessories in MN - Tams?


Dread Accessories

for me, i've never had issues with bonfire smoke or cig smoke stank getting trapped in my dreads. if you just pull them back, it will be fine.

but if you're really set on getting a hat or something, i would go check out etsy. you will easily find sick tams there.

so thankful


General Talk

BEFORE READING: this may or may not make sense, so i apologize if it doesn't.....

the past two weeks i've been really having a hard time with my dreads. they started to really bother me, and the more i thought about it the more i started to hate them. i started to realized that i missed brushing my hair and missed being able to style it. also i hated all the negative attention i started hating the negative attention i was getting from people. my teachers look down upon me, and my friends parents look down on me. it's like my hair was giving people an impression of something i'm not. i started to hate how i looked, so i would wear hats and pull my dreads back. i even started to comb a few out. but then i realized something. i was forgetting something very very important. i was letting people define who i was and i was letting the negativity make me conform back to what i wasn't and what i was trying to stir away from in the first place. i forgot that i loved that i knew who was able to look pass my hair, at my soul, to see who i really was. and then i started to think, well yeah i miss brushing my hair, but i love my dreads more than anything. i miss some of my old friends, and as much as i want to be friends with them i can't. i started relating my dreads and my hair to other things in my life. and i remembered how freeing dreading my hair was. and how much i love the journey of it. and then i started to relate it to a relationship. i'm just having a tough patch. i'm getting thought and i'll make it thought.

to people who are in the first few months, don't give up. it may not seem like it, but you're changing as a person. you are learning and experiencing things that a lot of people haven't gone through. just know dreads are a beautiful thing, and they are a visual of how beautifull your soul is. and to people who have had dreads for years, you are an inspiration. just looking at pictures of really old dreads, makes me happy and makes me want to never get rid of them. it is helping me get through this rough time with my dreads. this site is what has helped me realize so much about my dreads and myself. so i guess what i'm really trying to say with all of this, is thanks to everyone here with your support.

namaste.

loose roots


Help! Save My Dreads

lately i've been noticing that my roots are like normal hair. the ends of my hair are completely locked up, but the newly grown hair (about two to three inches) isn't dreading. what's going on? is this normal?

Dread Maintenance

so yesterday was my 5 month dreadeversary! my dreads are looking awesome and locking up fanastically. but i've noticed they are starting to get a little stinky. i used baking soda to wash them, but what can i do so they don't smell?

OK i have a question about dying dreads


Dread Maintenance

for me, dying dreads has always slowed down/gone back a few weeks. wait until they have fully sectioned, they will still come undone a little, but it won't be as disapointing.

baking soda.


Dreading Methods

so i didn't really believe all the stuff people said about how amazing baking soda is. but oh my god. my dreads are so different after just doing it once. they shrunk up like crazy and are getting really thick. let's just say, never using anything other than baking soda mix on my hair.

i'm glad people know what i'm talking about. it's amazing that just ditching a comb can change who you are.

oh i don't care where it is! i just didn't know what to put it under so i just left it.

but yeah, i think it's important for people to know what they are getting into, because it's not just about the hair style. it's a life style.

my journey.


dreadlockssite appreciation


when i first started dreading my hair, all i was thinking about was how awesome my hair would look. but now 3 months since i stopped combing my hair, i have realized it is not about getting to the destination(dreaded hair), but about the journey. at first, i didn't understand how people were so patient about their hair locking. but now i've realized why. my hair changes everyday. a new dread will start to form within hours, and others will fall apart in minutes. i feel like as my hair is forming together, i am finding out who i really am. i am growing as a person as my hair is forming together. to me, it's not even about having amazing locked hair, it's so much more than that. i never knew that do this to my hair would change who i am as a person, and the way i look at life. i love it so much, and can't wait to see where life takes me and my dreads.
