there is no need to spend huge amounts of money buying dread kits

what a home made dread kit contans

minimal kit

a watch yup..time thats all

the super delux i dont got no time to waste kit

a flea comb from the pet store
a pinch or 2 of sea salt
an aloe plant
your own 2 hands

the best dreadkits don't come in a box, but from living outside of the box

the dreadkits sold by so called dread companies are full of harmful or useless products, they sell lies about dreads and complicated methods then insist theyre products make it easier to dread. the truth is theyre products and dreadkits create dreads that are destined to be cut. wax causes mold and the dreads are sticky stiff and gross. everything you will ever need to grow amazing dreads you already have the truth of dreads is just a click away dread forums complete information on all things dready

click that link for all the info you will ever need to grow beautiful dreadlocks that last a lifetime

(warning that page is long and covers every lie and truth)

Those who used the dread kit in the past tend to call themselves victims, not customers. Now there is a new group Dreadkit victims united. Jon the fight against dread abuse and the scammy sites that take advantage of the misinformed newbies.

you may want to just explore the forums , or the entire site

Normally, I'd say wait.  Kids don't develop the cognitive ability to make those kinds of decisions until they are about 10.  But 8 is pretty close, and from the limited description you gave us of him, I'd say he's probably ready.  

How were you planning on helping him get started?  Completely natural or with a little help from TnR?  Is he prepared to accept that he won't have mature locks for about another full year?  Yes, that's how long it'll take.  If he wants locks that bad, I'm sure he won't want to damage them by trying to speed up the process

Comment by Michelle DuBois on February 19, 2013 at 8:03pm

I am 47 years old and have an 8 year old son who wants dreads more than he wants to breath.  He is homeschooled and a competative skimboarder and surfer, and basically lives in the ocean, summer and winter.  We have let his hair grow long and it is about 3 inches longer than his shoulders.  Is his hair long enough at this point to begin his dreads?  I'm catching flack from everyone about doing this, but hey, he's my son, and it's his hair/head.  I want him to be happy.  I would like to go ahead and get his hair started as soon as possible, so people will quit trying to convince me that I should not allow it!  I often wonder how they would feel if I was giving them advice on raising their children.

well said in fact the slower the journey the more you feel you earned them and the deeper the meaning they have

The Old Dude's dreads are awesome!

Comment by Treehugginmomma on March 23, 2012 at 2:29am

Nice ad! :) My dreadies are bi-polar. I didn't find this site before my journey began. I have dreads that are backcombed, rip and twist, latch-hook, and naturally formed. I really wanted them. LOL :) Learning to just quit brushing and combing was excruciating for me. It's funny how much of an extension of you dreadlocks really are. Mine have brought me to a whole new level spiritually. I have learned so much about myself. My advice to somebody committed to beginning this journey? Learn patience and just leave them alone. You might want 'em quick but faster is not always better. Oh yeah... Change your prospective on 'bad hair days'. :)

well backcombers use em to backcomb but you can use it to ceremonially throw away to symbolize the beginning of the natural dread journey

Comment by Ethon O'Brien on March 22, 2012 at 11:43pm

whats the flea comb for?
