Just checking in, because I haven't been able to look at this site in an age… Missing the community. My knots are coming along slowly, but surely -- I think I have about 10-20 knotting up now (maybe more?), and a few are noticeable, but the only person commenting so far is my mother-in-law, haha… She asked if it was a braid, and I told her it was "an experiment" Not satisfied with that answer, she asked if she could touch it, and I said it was knots. I'm sure she'll ask me about my knots…Continue

-if your not in the mood to deal with your hair just wear a wool tam
Journey is 9 months plus now, backcomb with wax at the beginning but the wax is gone. I wash my hair with BS/ACV once a week and just plain water the rest of the time. I do separate the strands often. I see progress but my husband doesn't.
We are seeing his family tomorrow for a mini-reunion and he asked me this morning if I was going to fix my hair before then. I don't know how to describe the blank look he gives me when I tell him that there really is no "fixing" it. I can not only…Continue
would anyone reccomend using aloe vera in dreads? I heard it sticks loose hairs together and is safe because it is all natural. My hair is naturally straight. My dreads are two months and theres still straight hair everywhere :/
I made it to the six month milestone in my journey, and I'm beginning to have doubts! I'm tempted to go back to a beard that is more "mainstream." With all due respect to my Jewish friends, I've had too many folks ask if I was a holy man! The fact that dreads happened so fast this time only makes matters worse because I'm thinking I can try again anytime. I'm beginning to remember why this is not my first journey. What to do ... what to do?
Hi everyone! I have a question: what is the beads for dreads for? They are used to make round dreads? How do I use? Yes, please explain a little what they are. Thank you very much and sorry for the bad English!
HI. I've been wanting dreads for a long time so i decided i would try it out. i decided i wanted to do the neglect method.
For about 1 month i washed my hair with just normal shampoo, no conditioner, and i didn't brush my hair at all. my hair is naturally really straight and after the first month nothing really changed other than a few tangles in my nape. I became a little skeptical about the neglect method with my really straight hair so i asked my girlfriend to do a twist and rip…Continue
Today I'm starting over!
I like the thought of the neglect method because the individuality of each dread but I decided to go with the twist and rip. Reason being is because I love conditioning my hair. I love not having tangles. I hardly ever brush my hair but Neglect is a problem for me because if I wash my hair I have to condition it (if I don't have dreads). I don't like the feeling my hair has without conditioner. Every time i get in the shower I will condition it and it will be…Continue
It's the second week of neglect for me. I've been washing my hair with baking soda and acv once a week and using my fingers to separate the sections out. I did a little twist and rip on some front pieces last night but when I washed my hair today it pretty much undid…Continue

Years ago I would have never even dreamed of having dreadlocks. I was vain and spoiled just like the majority of people. However after many experiences I have lost most of this ego that was always holding me back. I don't belong to any specific culture or religion, and I finally feel free to be myself.
I grew up in a white, conservative, rich neighborhood, where everyone judged by looks. I was constantly destroying my hair to try and look acceptable to others. I was always cutting,…Continue
It never fails to amuse me when people ask me if I'll regret a decision when I'm older. The answer is no, I find age & time that for that matter to be absolutely a relative - At 36 almost 37 I'm already kinda sorta older as considered by majority of the people who've asked me that question. Karu…
This is just a random question for anyone who might know answer or ideas on how to work with said question. When growing natural dreadlocks it seems in more cases that the back locks up a lot quicker than the front. Why is this and is there a way of taking what is happening in the back and apply it to the front and sides of the head?
