No More Dreads


By Mary White, 2011-08-16

R.I.P. 8/15/11

I combed them all out. Took myself, two brushes, a half bottle of conditioner, and my sister-in-law.

I decided to do itfor of several reasons:

a) I get bored easily.

b) I like being able to do stuff to my hair.

c) I have been having horrible headaches and I believe the weight of them along with the pulling and pinching of my scalp as a result of the dreads congoing didn't help.

d) I live in the Deep South, where this summer it has gotten to 117. I get hot easily, and my dreads trapped a LOT of heat.

e) I was unhappy with the way they were started. They weren't natural to me. The next time I have dreads, and I will have dreads again one day... I will start them completely natural, free-form. No TNR.. Nothing.

The first dread I ever had, died at age 10 months... It was surgically removed with a pair of scissors. That dread was born of backcombing and wax. If anyone does NOT believe that using wax even ONE time causes harm.. please, request my photo. I kept the dread as evidence. Cut two inches from the root, You can clearly see the wax and other gunk packed into the center. I only used wax twice and not even a teaspoon of it. I tried aggressive wax removal. It did NOT remove the wax. Point being.. DON'T USE WAX, if you ever want to comb out your dreads. You won't be able to. I couldn't PICK that one apart with a safety pin!

Again, I will again, one day have dreads. The time and method was just not right.

So please, not bad vibes, ya'll!

Peace K!

Dread Journey


By Mary White, 2011-07-03

From June 22nd- day one till NOW, um, July 3rd... it's been a week and a half since I've had my WHOLE head dreaded.. and I am lovin' every minute of it.

I even got a COMPLIMENT on my locs today at IHop!

Washing time is cut 3/4.. I only wash my hair like once a week, with about 2 Tbsp baking soda dissolved in about a quart of water scrubbed into scalp. I rinse it with clean water and then pour over a mix of about 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar with about 4 Tbsp Sea Salt dissolved.. Let that soak infor about 10 minutes (then I wash my body etc)... then I rinse with clean water and squeeze out the excess.. Then Iwrap it up in a towel for a bit.. then take it down and shake.

Right now they are still semi-frizzy, and have all sorts of lovely loops, lumps, bumps, and swirls.. Some stick out in odd places, and some are flatish. I love every one of them.

Ideveloped bangs as a result of this.. :)

And have grown feathers :D

I am still awaiting the arrivalof my tam fromEtsy, and stillworking on making some more clay beads (this time I will NOT use Mod Podge to Gloss them) *** my efforts resulted in very sticky beads!**

I sometimes sleep with a bandannaover them, sometimes I don't.

Ioccasionally spray them with lemon juice when I'm outside to lighten them some.

I have a few wood and glass beads in them as of now, and currently theyare pulled back in alow pony....

I am in search of new ways to wear them.... Up, etc..

Also looking intoother means of decoration and dying.. with henna...... etc.

Potential YouTube video coming soon!

PeaceK!
