Conditioning.

Should I be conditioning my dreads? I've only had them for 8 days.

Hei, Ixchel!

I have almost 2 years letting my hair grow after the method I used for my first set of dread which was a total fail.

I wanna start natural method and since you are around 2 years on it, I would like to know all your experience about it, tips, advices, how you style it for job, etc, etc...

I've seen the pictures of your dread timeline and they are great!

Send you a hug, take care!

Georgina

Funny story for you lxchel. 20 years ago I got to bring my 2 day old son home on Mother's Day, the best gift ever.  3 days prior to that, my husband and I were shopping for gifts for our own mothers. Mine loved to go to the beach, so we were deciding on one of those low beach chairs that can sit in the water or sand. So here we are, in a department store in the evening, hubby told me to try it out and helped me down onto it. It felt fantastic and very comfortable, we decided to buy her that one. I try to get out of the chair and couldn't on my own, just like a beached whale.  He laughed his head off and walked away, leaving me flayling in this low chair on the floor. I tried to get up by myself and still could not, he came back in a few minutes, still laughing and helped me out. As we were walking out of the mall, I told him my legs felt like jelly. Low and behold, that struggle in the chair started the process of my labour and I had my son the very next morning. The joke was on him when I had to wake him up at 3 in the morning to go to the hospital..... Just thought I would share this with you.....Peace and all the luck to you...

I did buy the liquid shampoo =] It is making parts of my hair really soft but it is making the roots really dry so I guess I can say it is kind of helpful? With the next pay check I am going to get the pink seas salt spray because the stuff I made here at home is not doing too much for my hair. Thank you for the advice! As soon as this liquid is gone I am going to buy the bar soap =]

 That will be an awesome surprise! Congratulations =] Yes, I have had my dreads for one week now. I have not washed them yet. I have gotten them wet twice and each time they have loosened up quite a bit. I am going to buy two products tomorrow from dreadlockshampoo.com. I have narrowed it down to either locking gel or sea salt spray. Which would you suggest? And also, one type of shampoo, either the bar or the liquid. I am not sure which is better though. I feel like my hair is so fragile right now that it wont be able to handle me scrubbing and rinsing liquid shampoo through it.

Hi! Jazzymomma sent me. She said you are on your third pregnancy and so am I! I am not very far along. Are you anxious? Do you know what you are having? Your locks are gorgeous btw.

Sorry to read that you're not feeling well during your pregnancy. Hang in there and in no time you and your family will have a new, beautiful baby to love!

I saw a girl the other day that looked so much like you, for a sec I got kind of confused and thought that she was you. She didn't have dreads but the same strawberry blonde hair colour. Do you know if you have any Swedish relatives, if so you and this girl must have a common ancestor. :-)

hey if you're looking for inexpensive plugs and stuff, I got my agate pair (that I use as beads) at bodyjewelrysource.com. They use the word "gauges" but their prices are amazing and they're always having sales. I got my agate plugs on sale for $3.50 a piece. Normal price for their organic jewelry is anywhere upwards of $4 a piece and shipping is really cheap and fast too. They're also on amazon and ebay where sometimes their prices are even better.

Okay, I was super excited to find this and had to share with you!  http://www.dyeyouryarn.com/kool-aid.html

This weekend was a bit of a doozy for me, so I am getting to experiment with the koolaid today... so fun and just what I needed to de-stress!  the walmart here didn't have much, so I will have to check a few other places cuz I really want blues and greens!!

Awesome!  I will probably play around with the kool-aid this weekend... I'm excited.  I think I'll try without the vinegar just to see how vibrant the colors come out and go from there.  I'm really into rustic looking shades, not necessarily thin or light in hue, but just "old timey" looking, if that makes sense... perhaps mixing different amounts of different shades may help too.  Thanks for all the advice, I can't wait to go pick up some colors, I have 2 skeins of wool that I've been holding onto just for this so I think this will be a great way for me to start out with dyeing!

I like the idea of the kool-aid dyes... what do you have to use as a mordant bath, if any?  I was just going to use vinegar when I try with plant dying.

Hey chickie!  I'm going around to some of the regulars and asking if they could test the mobile site for SE and post in this thread about it:
http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/new-mobile-site-front-page?id=3754945%3ATopic%3A1380375&page=2#comments

Trying to get a gauge on what works and doesn't works for various phones, etc.  Also opinion on layout and such things.

On a totally unrelated note, did you ever do that bang trim we were discussing?

Just wanted to let you know your post on Let's Get Personal brought tears to my eyes.  Much of the same thing on my end. 

Be well! :)
