This is just a random middle of the night blog.
I washed my hair really quickly.
It was a bad idea because i don't think i rinsed thoroughly so my hair kind of smells,
and like I feel like i made a bad concoction of oils.
Will I be ok?
Well Ill probably wash it again in the morning and do an avc rinse.
Guh I smell like a wet dog.
I shouldn't wash my hair at night.
but it itched so bad.
and it get's really itchy at night because we don't use air conditioning so i sweat.

Just found out that my husband, pomeranian and I are being sent to Salt Lake City, Utah for 4 months on his next job assignment. I've wanted to visit Utah for some of the scenery I've only seen in pictures. I was wondering if anyone is from there or has visited. What were your impressions? What are some things we have to do or see there? And what are the people like in general... how do they respond to dreads?

Hey! My name is Josh, I started my dread journey almost 2 weeks ago! I used the twist and rip method, my hair was very curly before dreading. I was just wanting to tell you all that I'm documenting my dread journey on youtube, my account is JoshsDreads. I just wanted to let all of you know, so check me out if you want. I researched dreads for around 2 years before I actually did them to know if it was really something I wanted to commit myself to, so I know a lot of the general information. Some things are becoming more apparent to me even through this short amount of time having them, because you can only learn so much about dreads before actuallyexperiencing them for yourself!If you all have any general advice I'd greatly appreciate any help! Thanks and happy dreading! :D

So I just dreaded my hair last September and a couple months ago I was having serious problems with flyaway hair pieces. I read everything on how dreadwax is super horrible for dreads, but I needed something. I thought about it for a while and got this really great idea. Years ago I lived in a town with a wool shop and the lady that owned it would sell lanolin balm as a natural lotion. It's made out of lanolin oil which is the stuff they was out of sheeps wool to untangle it and make it soft for crafts and cloth making. My thought was that if they washed it out to untangle hair, logically putting the stuff in hair would tangle it. Sheeps wool is very matted before the oil is removed. So I went to Esther's Place in Big Rock IL, and bought a couple jars. My plan worked great. The oil also helps smooth out the new growth making it more uniform. So if anyone is considering dreadwax, I highly suggest looking into lanolin balm first.

I started with TnR on the bottom. Havent worked to the top. The Title says it all.

This is my first post on here, and i've looked all over this site for which way should chose to start dreading.
i've chosen TnR then to move to neglect.
Now, my girlfriend has been working on the back of my head, and im slighty worried that my dreads are too thin. The sections she is taking are the 1" by 1" sections, but the Tnr Leaves my hair sections looking almost pencil then it seems. Yes this is just the back of my head so far, 2nd layer and still a bit of baby hairs. But should these be thicker than they are, or will in a couple of days when they loosen up will they look better?
I dont have pictures at this moment, but i will post some soon. Until then, is there any advice on this situation?

I started my dreads with the TnR method and I believe it was the best choice to start my dreads. I didn't do perfect sectioning I just grabbed hair and went with it, so I have different sizes and I love it. My goal is messy dreads and that is exactly how they are turning out. I'm not doing any maintenance to them except washing my deads every 3 days or so because I live in the desert and its hot and dirty ha. So just an FYI I love the natural method after I started with the TnR. A lot of my dreads are becoming their own with loops and beautiful bumps. My goal is to not have "candle stick" dreads. Last but not least, thanks to this awesome website. Ahe'hee (Thank you)!

i just started dreading two and a half months ago and i used half neglect half backcombing because i was impatient, and the neglected ones are already dreaded up, and some of the blunted themselves. this is my favorite dreadlock site and this journey is really cool although every. body. stares at me hahahmoredreads
