judgement in early stages


Introduce Yourself

Baba is right, everyone judges others, it is hard wired into our brain. Being able to make quick judgements have kept us alive as a species. Unfortunately for dreadheads, most people have a negative sterotype of dreadlocks. I'm sure if you asked most people to play word association you would get stuff like, "drugs, rasta, weed, dirty, hippy, gangster, etc". The way I look at it though is that this gives dreadheads a keen awareness of what it means to be judged. Therefore we have a responsibility to be better then that and notice our own prejudices. Dreadheads should be the example others should want to be. However it is up to us to show this to others. Having just one person think " wow I was stupid to judge him just because of his hair" can change the world.

Do not make the same mistake I did. Go natural.


Saved Dreads Success Stories

Thats a pretty valid point Valerie. I think most people equate education with knowledge, that's just the way our society works. Truth is we all know people with tons of "education" who are clueless about things. In most aspects of life experience definitely triumphs any form of formal education. The apprentice system worked for thousands of years. Why? Because it works. That is why SE should at least be heard out: 20 some years of experience with dreads.

Saved Dreads Success Stories

I honestly wonder what the percentage of the people on this site did something bad to their hair originally. It seems like the short time I have been here half the posts have been about recovery. It really is sad how many of us get tricked, me included. I will have to admit it is all part of our own faults though, we grow up in an instant gratification world, we all want dreads now, so we allow ourselves to "believe" the lies even though common sense tells us things don't make sense.

9 month update and info needed :)


Introduce Yourself

I really think this thread should stick around. I'm pretty sure almost all new dreadheads have this fear. Subconsciously I'm always squeezing my roots together and it gives me anxiety that it is not as thick as the actual dread. Common sense says it won't be, but, when you start to fall in love with your hair lol, you worry about lots of silly stuff.

I want dreads but I dont


General Talk

Honestly it's always gonna be tougher for a young person to dread if they don't have an inner circle who is also into the same culture. At your age your brain is hard wired to want to fit into a group. I'm not saying this to be negative, just if you do decide to do it, it would definitely help if you had someone close to you do it too. I'm almost 35, and like SE said it takes many of us a long time to actually do it. I've always wanted them too, and if you feel the same you will get them when you are ready ;)

spinny from toronto


Introduce Yourself

Same here. I got dreads because I've basically had every other hairstyle and wanted to "try" dreads. 3 months in now and I can't picture taking them out. Maybe that will change but I'm already thinking out being an old man with long gray dreads lol. I'm pretty sure lots of people start them off just to try a different style and end up keeping them forever. Dreads have a sneaky way of changing who you are!

Getting really frustrated with dreading (Dandruff)


Dread Maintenance

Keep us updated on the listorine. I have the same problem. It really sucks when you can't really enjoy your dreads because of nasty dandruff

My DREAD-full journey<-- see what I did there


Member Journals and Timelines

Look pretty cool. It will be interesting to see what they look like when they are long. Don't think I've seen any long dreads with the sides shaved.
