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!

dreadlocks shampoo and dandruff


Dread Products

I have the lockin up liquid and pretty much no flakes. When i was just doing the BS and i was starting to get some so i would say it does help. my scalp has always been pretty good. I've seen on here that the liquid is best for new locs, im a week or 2 behind you. the shampoo says its rosemary infused but im also thinking that because you have to rub it in it helps loosen the dead skin whereas with BS you dont scrub at all
