Wow. SE That looks terrible. John, my mom is a loctician and specializes in the kind of dreads that require, wax, twisting,maintenence every month etc. It's all a bunch of HOOPPLAH! (lol) You dont need any products, in fact, clean hair locks up better. If you have wax and things, its not locked, its just covered with goop to look like what they call a "dread" more like "dreadful" (sorry for the bad pun:p)

Anywho, no wax, no twisting, keep your hair clean, its already sectioned. The simplest, most beautiful in my opinion, hairstyle we can have. I hope you have fun in your journey, and we are all here to help you along the way.

Why I started my dreads


Member Journals and Timelines

I've been thinking about dreads for about a year now. I've never been comfortable with my hair. Always messing with it, always having to do it. I never wanted to keep up with it anyways. So Decided to start research about 3 weeks ago. I have always loved the natural dreads. In berekley and San Francisco California, theres a lot of people who have grown dreads. I especially love the way the lighter colored dreads look. My preferance is the thicker dreads for myself, but I love them all. I chose dreads because they require one thing-Patience. I have bad anxiety and I can get very impatient. Growing these dreads and sticking to it will be a great test of my patience and motivation. Also, they will help me learn not to care so much about what I look like. I don't want to be in a mirror every hour, (how i used to be), I just want to free myself from the mass of people who are a slave to their appearance. It's very inconvenient. Yes, with dreads, people will automatically judge me and might even think I was sloppy or dirty, but thats another thing about dreads that I like, They are very misunderstood. So only the true people who love dreads know what its really like to have them. Dreads are a form of expressing yourself naturally. I love nature and I would love to live in the forests. My favorite movie is ferngully. Growing dreads will also help me get closer to nature :) Growing dreads, I feel like I have to be more healthy, to go along with the natural aura that I'm feeling as I'm starting my dreads. I'm starting to eat healthier, I stretch more everynight and give myself 20 minutes a night for silence to think and stretch and clear my mind.

So to summarize, 1. I love the way they look. 2. It will help me be a more patient person. 3. help me not to care what others think, and not to care what I look like anymore. 4. They are misunderstood and its easy to find a "True natural dreader". 5. Help me get closer to nature and have a more freeform feeling. 6. Help me want to be healthier.

I am looking foreward to this journey, I feel like my own self, like I have finally found my "thing" my place, something that makes me feel comfortable in my own skin. I always get mad at myself for giving up on things, but, with all the family that's here on this site to help me, I think I will be fine :)
Thank you guys!
