My hair is growing knots are forming

Added by b foreal man on April 17, 2014 at 9:42am — 1 Comment

So as I was saying in my update...

I was showing my newborn baby dread to my husband who the. Turned to his slightly drunk friend and asked if he knew how to do dreads..to which the friend replies : " yea. You just stop washing and brushing and let it get greasy and nasty and tangled up. "

Well, I'm not one to be offended easily so instead of calling him a friggin douchebag and slapping him with my "nasty" hair, I calmly informed him that "no, you just stop brushing...you can still wash it no problem. " then he proceeds to… Continue

Bracing for impact

My grandfather(73) passed suddenly on Saturday (4/5/14). This leaves my grandmother(66) alone with three dogs and two cats. She has had multiple health issues her entire life, cannot drive, and has to move around with a cane, but she falls quite frequently. Obviously, I want to do whatever I can to help her during this difficult time.



Having said that, she is a blatant racist, republican (everything is Obama's fault republican), and likes bringing up all the people she has struck…

No Longer Counting

I have to say that my hair looks messier and closer to dreading in the few pictures I put up during that first week than it does now.  The good news is that I have stopped thinking about it.  I suppose I will take a picture at around a month just to see if there is any more progress, but right now there isn't much forward movement to show.  I have kept up with my spiritual treatments a bit, communing with my hair as an intuitive tool... asking it for good dreams... meditating on the…

Checking In!

Sorry I don't have any pics, but suffice to say that most of may babies are coming along pretty well while others have fallen out completely.... 



I've continued the baking soda/acv rinse routine - which I love! My hair feels soft and healthy, is very shiny, and has never curled more in my life! Even if I don't stick with dreads forever like I want to, this will probably be a staple for me anyway. 



It's just a little frustrating because I feel like things are happening…

questions

Well, I am on the first day of naturally growing dreads. So now thinking more after reading so much, how long exactly should I wait to wash my hair again? And exactly what kind of shampoo is going to be best for this process. I don't want to use something that's going to be bad for my dreads etc. Btw I just got the pic uploader to work for me. You can see how much hair im going to be working with! This is going to be so much fun. Not only that but a completely new life for me :) I am so…

Military and Dreads

So my Husband and I live right outside of a USMC base (he's in the USMC) And I find that going on base or even meeting other females for friendships is awful! I've been here 2 months and I made 2 friends (before I dreaded) and only 1 of them will still hang out with me on a daily basis. I've learned to ignore the up and down looks of people who just don't understand me. But I'm tired of not having any friends to talk to or go out with. I left behind my family and friends and I just want some…

Letting Go: A Rant

     We were together for almost seven years. I was 17. We both needed rescued, and we found solace and sanctuary in eachother. But once our crises ended, and our passion faded, we became comfortable. JUST, comfortable. But we thought we still needed eachother, so we stayed together. You supported me financially, and I helped you to be able to express your emotions and talk about things. I'm ashamed, and was ashamed, that you provided for me: food, communication, a roof over my head, and…

My UFO sighting

My boyfriend and myself were in our back yard admiring fire flies, this is when we walked over to a path we have leading to our chicken coop; my boyfriend noticed in the sky what he thought to be planes. About 100 feet from where we stood we saw 3 red bright lights round in shape. There were two red lights that were clearly separate objects following closely to a much larger object. It flew closer approximately 50 feet above us very fast. When it was above the tree tops we could see them in…

freeforming process

I have been growing my hair since late dec. From a fade my hair is 2.5 inches now. Curious as to how long would my hair have to be to hold knots. I wash my hair every 3 days

My Dread Journey (Dyeing of the Dreads!)

So I've been wanting to dye my dreads for some time now after seeing some beautiful pics on here of people with odd locks or the tips of their locks dyed and thought seeing as my hair is the next shade down from black that a light colour on the tip would look really gorgeous.

I've been holding off on doing anything particularly to my dreads as they're only just approaching the four month mark and although they've done really well, I didn't want to do anything to hinder or upset the…

2 Year Dreadiversary !!

Six months before my 30th birthday, I decided I was going to quit smoking. In order for my insurance to pay for Chantix, I had to attend smoking cessation classes. This was the beginning of the rest of my life. In these classes we were taught about changing our language. Instead of I NEED a cigarette, it was to become I WANT a cigarette. Instead of I WANT a cigarette but I CAN’T, it was to become I CAN have a cigarette, but…

Hello!! New to the site :) Have some questionnss

I just started my dreads, I'm Caucasian with thick brown hair. I've been doing it in sections, my hands get ridiculously tired :/ gotta take a break. I've been using the twist and rip method.

but my question is: is it better to leave them down, leave them in a pony tail, or a messy bun - or does it matter?

When I get my whole head done I'll put a picture up :) But I'm so excited about dreading my hair, I can't wait to see how they turn out.

My Dread Journey (Third Month's Progress)

Man! So I know I haven't really been keeping on top of photographing my progress and stuff but now that I've just done it and had a nosey at what all of my dreads are doing in more depth I can't believe how busy they've been! I mean seriously! They're all zigging and zagging and looping and doing all sorts of cool, awesome shit!

So this is the three month mark of my dreads now using the neglect method.…
