Curious Questions about how you face things with dreads


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Hi, i was just curious on how people cope with the dirty looks, or if you get dirty looks or people discriminating against you, people calling you names. In my opinion i've never been the one to care, but i've been called snakehead medusa bob marely sean paul and got dirty looks given to me from lets say the "Pretty group of girls" in school, How does everyone else reply to these comments ? :)

1st month problems


Help! Save My Dreads

i watched it, thats what changed my whole perspective about it, what do i do about the curly ness of the hair? Will it go away as they lock up more?

If they want to split in 2, let them. That specific section of hair might just lay on a spot on your head that naturally becomes 2 sections.

Let them be. They will come together.3 months is still young. The 4th month tends to be the messiest for many people. So you should probably see them coming together pretty soon,

I use a 1 liter bottle and mix 1/2 cup BS with 1-2tbls of salt. Then whatever oils you want.

Pour it on, and let sit for 10 minutes or so. The rinse, then mix about a capful of ACV in the same amount of water. Wash this off right away. When they nature, you can use more ACV and leave it in longer.

And palm rolling does nothing. It's only useful when wax is involved to make them look like locks. But it really is only a quick fix. I posted a video about what palm rolling did to my locks. If you watch it, you'll never palm roll again.

1st month problems


Help! Save My Dreads

So my dreads hit 3 weeks today *claps* but some of my thicket ones aren't exactly knotting, i used the bachcombing method and have washed them twice and gone to the pool blah blah, but some of the are just poofy and not good looking, which im not to picky about because they wont look beautiful the first month, some dreads are wanting to slipt in half and i have left them alone for a little this is what they look like, i heard about the bs/sea salt stuff and i wanna know how to make it, but i was wondering how long would it take for them to start closing upp more and what i can do, palm rolling does NOTHING more like a 2 min good looking dread, i think that they're so curly because i have really curly hair which is understandable, i try to palm roll them when they're damp because i heard that is good? Idk any advice? :)
