Thank you!!! You guys helped me to make the decision to grow dreads, especially reading your comments to people and understanding the spiritual side of dreads. Kind of funny because I just became aware that we are more than what we think we are. one with spirit one with nature and one with the universe.
Hey I just ordered some shampoo from deadlockshampoo and I am going to go for natural dreads and I was wondering when I start washing if I just wash my scalp and let the shampoo run down my hair or can I ball my hair on top of my head and scrub it all if that makes any sense. Lol.
After she sectioned it, she took a small strand and wrapped it around the rest. Every once in a while she used a crochet hook to tie knots, but mostly just wrapping. She left the ends loose cuz I don't want my hair to take forever to dry.It took her 8.5 hours to do it. I'm a lawyer so I needed a way to make it neat enough to work right away. I love your dreads and the contribution you have made and continue to make to the website.
Thanks for the advice, I'm not sure how to post a response on this site, but here's my plan , I took out the rubberbands and now I'm wondering if I should wash the Aloe out with a baking soda and water mix? Won't my dreads wash out too?
but first i need to get the old ones out somehow. any ideas? (i guess there is a thread somewhere but i dont know where to seach for it.)
then i suppose my hair will be in a pretty bad condition. is that good for dreading, or should i wait or repair it somehow before letting dread again? and what about getting wax and junk out of not dreaded hair, can i use something else than wax be gone?
sorry if asking things thats already told. if so, just tell me where or how to find it. :)
and of course i can try and share my experiences, if people wanna know. where, on my page or as a forum thread? still trying to figure out how this site works, as well :)
Thank you very much Soaring Eagle for the information. I do at times feel very alone on this "dreaded" journey. Most information comes from online, and I have a hard time sifting through what's harmful and what has benefits. I am new to dreading, and want the best for my hair. Thanks for looking out for me. I look forward to exploring this site, and it's participants.
thanks again for the info. been looking around here for a couple of days, and i´m starting to feel more and more like i really WANT to take them out and start all over again, the right way, even though they probably could recover. i want to see what they could be like and am actually looking forward to the whole process :)
