Escaped the hook


Saved Dreads Success Stories

Thanks for the compliments and advice (: Never really liked speed, I honestly only did it for 3 days then stopped permanently.. But since I've developed a pretty serious heroin addiction/tolerance.. Its partially the reason why I stopped messing with my dreads.. It's taught me things, but I think the time to stop is now.. I've always loved smoking weed, and I'm really trying to revert back to smoking pot and the occasional lsd/mushroom trip.

I've always had a kind of personal connection with psychedelics.. I don't know why I ever touched dope, it wasn't anything like me. I want to get off of it asap.. I know I have the power to deal with cold turkey withdrawal.. But committing to quitting is kind of hard now that I love it so much =\

Escaped the hook


Saved Dreads Success Stories

I started my dreads in February 2012. My starting method was improvised. I took some damn good acid with my friends at the beach. It made me start interlocking all my hair into dreads.. I kept interlocking daily for 3+ months.. I stopped after a while.. But then in the summer of 2012, I developed a bit of a speed problem (mostly adderall).. This resulted in my buying a crotchet hook and going to work for hours on almost all my dreads..

I finally realized all this nonsense was bad for my dreads and stopped for about year.. One year of natural development. This resulted in my dreads recovering almost fully from being weak and causing serious hair loss.. To absolutely no hair loss anymore, or in over 8 months.. All the unnatural knots seemed to have worked themselves out, lots of loose hair dreaded into my dreads on their own. Anyways, if you've had problems with unnatural dreading obsessions to get them mature-looking faster.. Just try and forget you have dreads, and live like you have a buzz cut (aside from washing them).. Soon enough they'll be right where you wanted them ;D

Should I wear this hat?


General Questions

Got a quick question before I turn in for the night.. I found this beanie in my drawer.. Its 85% wool, 15% nylon.. Should I wear it to sleep? Will it help my dreads, hurt my dreads or make no difference? I just wasn't sure cause of the nylon.. Also its typical beanie size, not tam-sized, so it might be a little tight, but not too bad.. What do you guys think??

Washing My Dreads


Introduce Yourself

An article here says you don't NEED to vinegar wash.. But I like it personally, has a nice effect on your hair. I'd say just don't overdo it and you'll be fine.. Put it in for 1 minute tops and rinse it.. As your dreads mature you can do 2-5 minutes.. and when they're fully mature you can even use conditioner if you choose, but I'm getting ahead of myself now lol
