I love being in the woods, but I can't deal with the thought of ticks possibly being in my hair.SE I know you spend a lot of time outdoors. Is there anything to repel ticks, or to make sure they are…Continue

Profile Information

About Me
I'm 27 and live in Lincoln, Nebraska and am a certified yoga teacher. I love the outdoors and anything fun and active.

If you know anything about "earthships", which is not anything like a spaceship, I adore them, and hope to build one in the near future.
How long have you been dreading?
3 weeks
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
backcombing and palmrolled just the first three days. Nothing but keeping them clean after that.

Kindness and Compliments

If you read this, be forewarned, it's random and all over the place.

It has been about three weeks since I backcombed all of my hair. I layered small on top and larger on the bottom. I used lockpeppa and a dread comb, and nothing else. I could have gone without the lockpeppa, but it did seem to make my hair more "grippy."

Anyways, this is my second set of dreadlocks and I feel better prepared for them this time around. I am at a better place in my life and more accepting… Continue

Welcome to the site :D
palmrolling isn't really necessary unless you used wax(did you?) so if you didn't, you can still palmroll, but over palmrolling could hurt the roots of the dreads so do it gently :)
