Crisis mode... need help!

By Australe, 2013-02-03

So I'm less than a month away from my one year anniversary of starting my dreads. I'm in a bit of a crisis right now. I want to cut my hair. I miss feeling a brush going through my hair, being able to run my hands through my hair. My dreads are locking up really well, almost a little too well. Some of them are going really crazy... actually MOST of them are going really crazy. More so than I really want them to. I wish I had made smaller sections so as they sucked up and got crazy loopy they wouldn't be as thick as they are. I'm seriously debating cutting all my hair off and starting to regrow my hair with the intention of starting again when its a little bit longer.
I started my hair with T&R, followed by neglect. I feel like they've become part of who I am. But now I'm also working out in the real world again, a small mom and pop's computer shop. I deal with a lot of older customers and often times wonder if they don't think less of me because of how I look. I know it shouldn't bother me but it somewhat does. I didn't realize how well my hair would take to dreadlocks, really didn't want them to get as crazy as they are.
I don't know what to do, this has been a daily thought now for about the last week. Part of me loves my hair, the other part hates it. I don't regret doing it and it seems like a shame to throw in the towel at almost a year. What to do.... what to do...

First Blog a week into Neglect and my introduction to the site

By JahKrishna, 2013-02-02

Well my favorite color is this light teal... hopefully this isn't to challenging to read. My name is Cinnamon and yes I am being completely serious :). Today is the first of February so happy pre-valentines day to all of you! I'm very excited about growing my own natural dreads and seeing how my hair decides to mature. Just did my first BS/ACV wash and so far I can completely feel the change in the texture of my whole head. My scalp feels a nice balance and my hair feels strong yet very textured. I followed the 1/2 cup to 5 cup water for the baking soda and the 1 tablespoon to 1 quart of water mixtures. I'm going to be posting a photo of my hair once it dries more.

Now I do understand that you can only talk about your dreading adventure so much. Here's a little more info on my day to day. I'm a mixture of beliefs... mainly I have deep roots in Indian Buddhism and yoga (I mean yoga in a practice of seeking direct divine connection.) , and a bit of theRastafarian way of life. I am very motivated byParamahansaYogananda who is a yogi originating from India. He was also the writer of Autobiography of a Yogi.

At the moment I am fully confessing to being a couch potato :/. I'm surprisingly finding pregnancy to be not all the rainbows and "glowing" sunshine promised but every kick helps it feel very worth all the effort put into your little creation. Being 5 months along I finaly get my Anatomy scan ( very intrusive ultrasound) in three days; which will show my hubby and I what we;re having. I just am not that interested in waiting to find out. Also, I am a military wife for another six months until we very happily go back home to California. Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me and I look forward to reading a bit about all of you in the future.

Do u think that if i were to wear a sweater cap when i go to slep, that it could hold my hair in place and help with locking while asleep?

I Dont Know

By Tyler Clayborn, 2013-01-30
Eaelier today my dad expressed his negative comments with me and my hair (8 days old) . My mom also question my hair to. But thats not even the tip of the ice berg. My grandma call and expressed her negative comments basically insulting long dreads. I dont see why my family wants me to do my hair ' their' way and not just let me do my own thing. And the saddest fact about this is that virtually none of my family supports my decision. But all of my friends support do.

Day 3 natural/ free form dreadlocks

By michell loera, 2013-01-30

Im on day 3 and I feel like my hair is coming along kinda fast :) I have sections already and knots below the nape area. I just ordered some Lockin up liquid dread shampoo and the lock magic gel, so cant wait to see how much that helps out. Today was the first time I washed it since starting and it made the sections stand out even more, which im super stoked about! I also ordered a wool tam, i'll have to get used to wearing something over my hair since normally i never wear beanies/tams. I'll be wearing it mostly for work. I'll try and keep updating my profile every week and post a pic at 1week ..

motivation to start my dread journey

By soulshiiine, 2013-01-29

So, long story short, i've been wanting to dread my whole head for about a year and half. I've had 1-3 dreads in my hair for the most part during that time period (twist and rip). i've been planning on getting a friend to twist and rip all of my hair, but now i am leaning way more towards the natural method. I do have a more relaxed job and will be going to college next year so the timing seems pretty decent. i have fairly thick hair but its pretty straight with a little bit of wave. it tends to get oily pretty quickly if i don't wash my hair for about 3 days. i have been using all natural shampoo for about 2 years. so basically all i need to know is how to START. and when i do wash my hair, is there anything in particular i should or shouldn't do? thanks for your help!

happy dreading ~

Ive been dreading for about 6 days. I started with a two inch afro and one dqy i did the towel rub method then went straight into free form. My main concern isnt the wait , its cleaning. I would order some organic shampoos from these great website s ive heard of but, i dont have a credit card, and i dont feel like dealing with my parents criticism. So to make an already long story short. What r some home remedies that u use? What would u suggest for my my free form babies? Please go into detail . Ive heard about a few but im not quite sure what to do
