Money or Dreads?


General Talk

Ha, That's a great story, sometimes its important to be reminded that no one is better than anybody especially when it comes to material possessions. You've had your dreads for years and your wisdom must be vast. I just pray that my doors are open and not closed. I own the business in which I'm talking about so I don't have to work for anybody, but I do have to maintain a healthy relationship with my clients. Right now my hair is still in the beginning stages so its easy to maintain. I wonder how it's going to be in the future...

It's true if they want to work with me they must accept me for what I am.

Money or Dreads?


General Talk

I am caught between two worlds that are clashing like swords. I am currently in the world of business, money is being made, and people are beginning to see their lives change. However, my business partners feel that my choice to grow dreadlocks may hurt our image. You see, people are really judgmental when they see a Natty dread walking around, they may associate stereotypes that may trigger words such as Rasta, Africa, Marijuana, Dirty... However, my heart is strong and nobody can shake the fruits from my tree. I am willing to make it work but don't know how to come about it. What you guys think?

Does all hair dread naturally?


General Questions

I plan to go all the way with it Calipark, thanks for the wisdom. To answer Baba Fats; I wash my hair about every three or four days with Tea tree oil from Dr. Bronner's making sure that I dilute the liquid 12 to 1. I let my hair air dry after a light dabble with my towel. I sleep on my side and when I wake up i could feel all my hair platted down which will probably affect my dreads. I will keep you guys posted in my development and hopefully in months to come I'll be able to feel my first dread.

Does all hair dread naturally?


General Questions

I've been growing my hair for months now ( I lost count of the days) but since the beginning I didn't comb my hair. My hair is growing but I see no sign of locking whatsoever. I know, i know that with patience all comes in due time but when I go on YouTube and see some of these people show off their dreads in just three months or so you can already see the transformation. Maybe I'm doing something wrong or maybe my hair just takes a very long time to even begin to see locks. Anyways, I would love to hear how long it took before you started to see your dreads come to be.

Groups anywhere?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

It's funny, but you share the same outlook I have in life. I would love to leave it all behind me and travel to the open woods where nature calls. Where I can simply live on my own time and experience life the way it was meant to be lived.Unfortunately, I too lack the skill of survival in the wild. (though nothing is impossible to learn)

The Uprising


Introduce Yourself

Thanks for the feedback guys

My hair if pulled down reaches my eyebrows so its about from two to three inches. I do run my fingers through my hair from time to time, I had no idea that would slow down the process. I'm willing to wait years to see my hair mature and lock over time.

Good Advice Baba Fats, I'll stay away from mirrors

P.S. New York is a great place to visit

The Uprising


Introduce Yourself

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jeffrey Matos and I'm writing this from the city that never sleeps. My journey started as a promise I made to myself that I could finish what I started. So, I'm 6 months in and patiently waiting for my first lock to appear but I know it takes time. I come from Dominican decent so my hair is somewhat a mix of Black and Spanish making my hair nappy/curly which from what I hear my hair type is one of the easiest to dread. This site is inspiring to many dread heads around the world and I'm just happy to be a part of it.

One Love.

What are your reasons for Dreading?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

The spiritual growth is inevitable when growing dreadlocks. A person is becoming one; Revealing who you are to yourself. However, I had no desire to grow dreadlocks before a turning point occurred in my life.

I was on the brink of joining the Air force. I was moments away from signing the contract that would bind me in militant regiments. It was a mental battle between what I thought I wanted more, freedom or security. The choice was mine to make. I ended up not doing it and felt horrible backing out of my word.

Then I made a promise to myself that I would finish what I start. My spiritual journey with dreadlocks begun.
