Dreading Methods

This is hilarious. :D I should rattle this off next time someone comes up to me and is like "So liiiike, how do you dread your hair, derp?"

Coconut Oil...

I mean...if your hair looks and feels fine, I don't see a problem with it...

When people tell you how to maintain your hair


General Talk

Oh, if I had a nickel for every time someone walked into my place of work and was like "Imma fix you up with some beeswax, no worries!" Ugh. But honestly, once I tell them that faffing around with my hair would directly contradict the idea behind freeforming, they usually leave me alone. I try to educate before I hate, haha.

Have to cut my dreads in January :(


Help! Save My Dreads

Start dreading again the day you move out and are on your own. :)

I hate the smell of just hair


Introduce Yourself

Have you tried rinsing your hair with tea? Heard of a few people here who do that.

ACV ewww >_<


General Talk

How much h2o / ACV do you use? If you mix it correctly, you should barely smell anything afterward...but it does smell pretty strong, so it could take some getting used to. I've been using ACV for so long that I don't even remember if I initially had an issue with its smell, haha.

Can I use coffee?


Dread Products

Coffee's really acidic, so it probably wouldn't be a good idea to put it in your hair on a regular basis. A less-acidic-yet-just-as-delicious-smelling-alternative -- buy some coffee essential oil, mix it up with some water in a spray bottle and voila!

Dreadlock Picture Gallery

It's fun to play around with hairstyles during that stage. You can take a couple chunks of hair that have already matted up and tie back your loose hair in a ponytail, make a headband with them, etc. :)

Hair drying time :D


General Talk

Mine are freeform, and just over a year old. And...they always air-dry within a few hours? My hair dries wicked-fast! I live in a place that is very cool and dry though, so that definitely helps.

split ends


General Questions

I honestly haven't even thought about split ends since my decision to dread. But if they're really, really bothering you, there's probably nothing wrong with giving your dreads a bit of a trim.
