Profile Information

About Me
Artist/adventurer/Dad.
How long have you been dreading?
5 times in 13 years
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Always natural for me. After 13 years I've found washing my hair as much as possible is key. I'll use good quality "natural" shampoo and wash my hair maybe 4 times in a row though not wash my hair every shower to conserve h2o and what not. By the third shampooing the shampoo changes into more of a thick foam which strips the oil and grease away leaving your hair super fluffy and easily mattable. after your locks form where they want to (over a period of time) you can take that naturally formed lock and shape it slightly to get some of the "bubbles" out while retaining your natural expression. And Tams are essential for tight locks to happen. Concerning maintenance, Same regime just not as often. You got to think of your jata as a finely woven blanket that needs a good wash to keep it cozy. Good luck!
