Trading Dread Beads?

You know what would be pretty sweet? If people traded or gave out dread beads to each other so that one person would have a bead from each person they gave one to. Then every time you saw that bead…Continue

Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
I backcombed and waxed first, but then I found this site and washed and combed it all out. I used twist and rip the second time around to section them off, but now I only wash and separate. I like to consider them and myself surrendered to nature.

Contemplating starting over. What to do!!

Posted on January 3, 2012 at 11:30pm 8 Comments

Hello everyone,

I just watched Lauren's last dread video, and it really got me wondering whether or not i should start my dreads over too. I've been thinking about it for a couple of weeks now or more and the idea is really starting to grow on me. It irks me to think that mine arent completely "natural" even though I didn't use products or tools. I don't know, I love my dreads, but I'm so curious what they would have looked like naturally. The sad thing is that they've recently…

dreads starting to congo = me sad

Posted on November 27, 2011 at 7:08pm 1 Comment

I've done a pretty good job at separating my dreads, but three on the side of my head are extremely knotted together. the one in the middle of the three used to be two, but those two congoed which was fine because they were pretty thin, but now they are dragging in their neighbors! I've been trying to separate them for a while, but nothing works. They all have a bead around them but that doesn't help at all. I don't want to cut my hair so I'm tempted to just let them congo...I would like…

Review - Tam and sleeves from Earthiest (HippyFish.etsy.com)

Posted on November 18, 2011 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

To anyone thinking about getting something from HippyFish/Earthiest, DO IT. These are really quality products that I'm sure will last a very long time, and the price is completely reasonable. Her tams are made from 100% virgin wool and the one I purchased is a perfect size for younger dreadies like mine that still have growing to do. All of my dreads fit inside the tam with some room to spare (my hair is passed my shoulder). And the peyote sleeves feel very tight and secure.…

Overwhelmed with love

Posted on November 15, 2011 at 12:25am 5 Comments

Hello everyone, 

This blog post is basically to say how much I love all of you. Never in my life would I have thought that I could feel so connected and at home with people I have never met before. Sure, I only know everyone here by their online profile and the things they say or pictures they show, but tonight it hit me how much joy this community brings me. The love, support, guidance, and fellowship that this website promotes and hosts is unbelievable. I'm not a big fan for online…

Hey Girl! 

So I'm in the process of taking out my crocheted dreads right now and going for a more natural path. I was thinking of also doing the TnR to get started and then let them go their own way. Was wondering though if you had any tips or advice for me. I've been a bit lost in all this (with so many people telling me different things) but I feel like you've been in a similar boat and you're dreads look gorgeous. I'm really looking for a guiding hand. Thanks

Peace and Love

~Sabrina

Hey, glad to hear back from you!  It is nice to be able to keep in touch on here, I am also on facebook if you want you can add me there too.  My shop is back open... we were doing so much moving around and house remodeling that it was just best to put it on hold for a bit, but I'm not making sleeves anymore, I'm just trying to focus on my knitting because I love it so much.  I'm phasing them out by the end of the year, but I'm hoping to start making some knit wool dread sleeves in the future, I had someone do a special request for one before for her husband and it turned out pretty cool... right now I'm working on some knit dread wraps, but it's a learning process with the size!  I do hope life is treating you well too and that your dread journey is still great!
