"Hello Loc Fam,
I will be starting my freeform journey on Monday. I just joined this group and I am already learning so much. :)
I have been natural since 2005 and one day I just looked at my brush/comb thinking "What am I doing? I don't…"
I'm Alden, I live with adopted family in McCordsville. We volunteer for a Wildlife rehab group called 'A Critters Chance'.
We currently have 4 cats, 4 dogs, 2 doves, 2 parakeets, 1 duck, 1 15 lb tortoise, 1 opossum, and 9 parrots; all living in the house with us.
Cleaning is a constant chore and we don't get days off, lol, unless everything decided to just 'not poop' for a full day!!! Ah pipe dreams.
How long have you been dreading?
Had my first set for a few years, cut and combed them out a few months ago, and now I'm starting over, bout a month in; love it!
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
I use a light mist of Sea Salt, Rosemary, Lemon Juice, Tea Tree Oil, and Peppermint Oil after washings, sleep on it, then rinse in the mornings.
My name is Jim and SE gave me your name in hope that you could help me with a problem.I suffered through a severe flu/pneumonia type illness for several weeks-on 4th nite of severe cold sweats-I was delusional and listened to this converstion in my head and didn't realize what I was truly doing until it was too late and cut my beautifful and to me sacred dreads- JAH love & Goddess blessings-I'm told you reattached dreads to your self and right now I could use some help/advice-How did you do it and how long did it take?
I have never cut my hair in over 34 yrs & that is dating from when my birth family coerced me into cutting it over my dad,s funeral-it was years long before then-anyway(yeah-I'm 55 and don't have another 15+yrs to grow new dreads I,m more depressed than over this hell-my life keeps falling apart more and more&I saved my old dreads. did you reattach to dread or strait hair? I have thin,straight hair like yours and I have no dreads lrft.Any help or advice would be appreciated!

How can I dread my hair in a neglect way and have my hair look awesome? I want my hair to look professional and not messy. I am so close to going to a salon,but I really don't want to. Any suggestions?,
Alden, I hope it doesn't upset you to ask...how did you graft your brothers dreads into yours? Will it work only if the hair being grafted in is already in dreaded form? I have a lock of my best friends hair from before he passed away and it would mean alot to me to somehow incorporate the hair into just one of my dreads. Thank you for your help. XOXO
maybe u didnt catch my last comment.. but i checked out ur pics n i hope mine turn out like that but u got way better hair for it than me.. i really wna kno how to do that wrapping thing n how u got urs so nice n tight..? msg me or somethin mayne.
