I know I must not be the only one who's hair gets stared at everywhere I go, but it sure feels like it. HAHA. Most days I just ignore the fact the everyone in the room is staring at my hair. It's funny how the minute I glance at them they quickly look away, like they are trying to hide the fact that they were just staring at me for what seems like hours. It's rare when someone says "hey I like your hair" or "wow your dreads are cool" or "you look good with dreads". So this is my question, I…Continue
I need itch relief. my hair is knotting beautifully and I couldn't be more satisfied but the with summer coming and having to sit all day in a hot school, my scalp is on fire. Remedies?
After a year and 9 months of growing out my hair I finally got dreadlocks (the soul purpose of growing out my hair). Went from straight buzz cut to about 12in of hair and now to dreadlocks. I honestly didn't think my hair would good for dreads and was getting kind of worried prior to getting them but a pat on the back for my hair, its holding up very good. The guy used the back combing method, crochetted the loose hairs, the whole process took around 12 hours - _ -. I have read all about wax…Continue
So after reading around a bit, and just pondering on how my hair works, I decided it would probably be better for me to, instead of going the neglect route, to tnr my hair. My hair is really crazy and bi-polar, and it varies from matting in the back within a few hours, to staying totally knot free for days at a time, so my hair may turn into one giant dread if I just let it go, or stay in it's naturally wavy/curly state for weeks...
Started on the tnr-ing earlier, have about a quarter…Continue
It seems my hair was listening to me when I said I didn't want blunted tips. And it decided to teach me a lesson.
A quarter of my dreads have blunted themselves at the tip. All of my fatties and a good batch of skinnies. Some of them have just folded themselves right in half. Still more are very thick or paddle-y with skinny little rat tails hanging off of them.
And I love it. It's ridiculous. I have found the beauty in the blunted tips.
I promised myself that once I…Continue
Hello how is everyone?
I wanted to write a post about my current dilemma. I suffer a brain injury and the truth is once you undergo such a horrendous ordeal that cause sever damage to your brain, life turns a little shitty. I have ben living with this condition for four years and nothing is easy. It is like simple living is an endless battle to stay upright! Whats worse few people…Continue
Well, my mom gets on me about the loops in my dreads as of recently. Honestly, I love the loops. I wear wooden beads in them when I want a little more of a fun feel to my babies and the excess in which I've been wearing them have added character. I don't want tame dreads that all look the same. I wash them and separate them...that's probably the extent of work I do on my hair. Gah, I'm such a happy camper though.
On another note, I've been quite careful about who I let touch my dreads…Continue

last night on the news there was a segment about a 49 year old woman in ny who went shopping in the nude, after walking into 2 different stores to shop she was arrested. When asked why she went shopping naked she replied "i believe in total and complete freedom". they then took her to a mental hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
I guess there's some irony in this.
If you live in america.. the land of the free..and believe in freedom... …Continue
It's been a year now since my life was brought to an abrupt stop due to Fibromyalgia.At first I went nearly mad. I thought I was such a grounded follower of Rastafari haha. I ate only a raw diet and trail run daily after working as a carpenter. Then I found myself in an empty apartment unable to walk or open anything because my hands had no strength and would become locked up. I thought I had been humbled enough by life and was trying my best to learn from this. In the fall my best friend…Continue

So last Thursday I cut my dreads off. I guess this is sort of a therapy post to vent and stop feeling sorry about it.
I enjoyed having them and was really looking forward to them getting even longer and gnarly, and I was proud to have them, even though even close family and friends never liked or got used to them. I had them about a year and 6 months and not having them is very strange and kind of sad.
It's been a few days now, and I really regret cutting them off. It wasn't…Continue
Hello, It's great to be here!
I've been No-Poo for a little over 5 months now, I've just recently stopped brushing my hair in hopes to naturally grow beautiful locks.
I've been doing quite a bit of research and watching videos and was brought to this site and definitely love what I see.
I do wonder though, I absolutely LOVE my coconut oil and wondered if that would help the process of getting my dreads? Has anyone used Coconut oil?
I'm trying to keep this as natural as…
Since I began my dread journey about one year ago, I have experienced a major shift in my consciousness and witnessed many amazing changes in my reality because of this shift in thought. Not all of these changes can be attributed to my dreadlocks, but one significant change has a direct correlation to them, which is the categorization of people based on religious belief, skin tone, ethnicity, working class, and lastly and most relevant to my interests, style (particularly hair…Continue
So about 5 weeks ago I decided to bite the bullet and start dreading my hair. After quite a bit of reading I decided to go with the Twist&Rip method because it was the fastest way I could find with the minimum damage.Continue
My hair: I've never been able to style it, it laughs at hair products and tools (curling irons and such); it's always had a mind of it's own and disagreed with everything I've done to alter it (dye it any color, even black, and in no time my natural red-gold highlights are shining brightly through.) So, dreads--it seems this is what my head has been waiting for. It's cooperating so well, with splitting into tinier sections and beginning to dread up with little help. I have been separating…Continue

So as most of you know, I started my dreads as a partial head. I still had A LOT of loose hair in the beginning. Because of the way I started them as a partial, sectioning perfectly never crossed my mind. I literally just grabbed hair and twist and ripped it. Never thought twice about it until now that my whole head has been finished for about 2 weeks now. My sections are all woven together and they all want to congo. I spend a lot of time trying to separate them, and when I don't separate…Continue
So im ganna start my dreads today. Should i do a bs wash to start off?
They say ignorance is bliss, but I believe it is a burden. Being close minded about any one subject shows just how soulless a person is, in my opinion anyway. Today, while searching for pictures of beautiful hair and Dreadlocks on pinterest.com, I came across This Photo. The comments infuriated me. I know everyone has their freedom of speech, but I don't understand the point of leaving a negative comment just for the…Continue
