Going veg and need a hand


Dreads and Diets

almond milk is a good alternative!! so yummy and apparently easy to make..not that i have tried yet..dont ask me why.. I think you just blend almonds and water let it sit for a bit and drain out the chunks. it would be easy to findmeasurementsand methods im sure!

Dready love

I was at the gas station the other day and i noticed a big poster/billboard on the side of the building. It wasn't selling anything. It was just a pic of a dreadlocked mama and her son looking happy! AWesome

2 Dread Theories


General Talk

my first 3 neglect dreads are under all my hair at my neck and they are the best looking one, very loopy and twisty. i have pretty straight/ fine hair. i also do a shampoo but i dont use my finger tips to massage i..hmm how do i describe it... use the flat part of my hand.

probably not a good habit but i was feeling sick the other day and really needed to wash my hair so i had a bath and washed it (i only showered before) and then i went back to bed with wet hair and it was so crazy and seemed like a lot of progress over night

Need some input on TnR & Neglect


Dreading Methods

i am currently on that road. i decided to do TnR but once i was towards the back of my head i couldn't be bothered finishing. its been around 2 months now. i have some neglect dreads forming and a lot of the TnR have fallen out completely, some just to the roots. some of them are grabbing lots of the loose hair. i mostly just use beads so i know what sections i haveseparatedand want to keep separate.going to try out wrapping today. well good luck :)

i did try the bs wash. couldnt be bothered mixing it up every time and all i can find in the store is tiny boxes of bs i think 200ml. cant find anything bigger. i have been in the ocean a few times too which has really helped. thanks for the comments :)

You are well on your way. Glad you know to expect shrinkage, I was not as informed as you, so it took me by surprise. In regards to dread sizes, any section at the scalp that is over the size of a quarter will be large, thus taking longer to dry and being heavier for the root system. The size of the scalp section is the size of the mature dread. I too did twist ^ rip and my arms were very sore, took me 3 days to do over time. Oh yes, have you tried the baking soda wash? 1/2 cup baking soda to 5 cups water, this is a no rubbing way to wash the hair. Good for the beginning stages.

Enjoy the journey

Katietheladi's Timeline!


Member Journals and Timelines

This is my timeline. I started around the end of november 2012. I did about 9 TnR in the front. once i had to hold up my arms to get the back i stopped..its to painful and annoying! I'm still trying to figure out how to do this so bear with me please. the first pic is about one month. i have a side cut but i figure its the perfect time to grow it out since im going to have some shrinkage and that section can catch up.

heres another of around 1 month

and now its just about 2 months. i have the liquid dreadlock shampoo. love it! my hairs pretty smooth but theres still some dreadies forming!
