I'm having a hard time deciding if I should dye my dreads. I've thought black, or maybe a cool auburn color, or even bleach them or maybe dye them pink! I've always been one to dye my hair like crazy. I need someone else's advice, should I dye them (and what color?!) or should I just continue to let them grow naturally (i did t&r but i mean naturally from now on).... decisions decisions... which one is correct?!

Ok, I have been searching online a lot for dread photos and such and I came across something last night that really bothered me.
There was a photo of a gorgeous woman who had natural dreads and I loved it. There were comments of all different opinions below the photo, but the one that really got me was when a guy said "all people with dreads are dirty."
That is bullshit. Why are people so judgemental about things they obviously know nothing about?! You know, some people with dreads are dirty. Just like some people without dreads are dirty. Some fat people are lazy, just like some skinny people are lazy. Don't ever sit there and judge someone for how they look because until you know them, you don't really know how they are! I can't stand how people do this... It drives me insane.
Ok I am done with my rant now!

Hey everyone. I wish you all a lovely and peaceful day. My dread experience has continued, I have dreads again, as of four weeks ago. I did have natural dreads between 1999 and 2009, congod and loved it. One congo on the back did get a little uncomfortable to sleep, but I cut them off because I was meditating alot at the time, and was becoming very concious of attachment and questioned, was I attached to my dreads, and I guess to answer the question, I cut them off, in hindsight I guess the fact that I was prepared to cut them could have told me I wasn't, haha. Although I had dreads for ten years I actually new nothing about the dread process or products or anything really, I just let them grow, perfect really. But, this time around I had access to the internet, and thought that backcombing and wax was ok,I was suspect on the wax for sure, I actually washed it out the next day after the backcombing, after four weeks, I have a very good start, nice firm baby dreads. I wash my dreads a few times a week. My dreads want to congo, I can feel it nearly every day, hair getting pulled into dreads, I think I will have to accept it, and let them congo, not as big as before, I think I had eight dreads last time, so maybe ten this time. I think it is very natural to congo, if that is what is happening I think I will agree with the dreads and let them congo. Does anyone else think that congod dreads is completely natural and should be nurtured?

Hey all. i havent posted in a bit but im just wondering if I could get some advice. I know that loops and bumbs are a normal think in the dreading process but in almost every one of my dreads they Kink completly in half. Will this fix itself and in not will it continue to do that through out the length on the lock as it gets longer?? Thanks for reading all.

Weeeeee! My 5 month neglect dreadlock anniversary is coming up in a few days! I'm so stoked! Check out myYoutube channel for a complete timeline! Stay tuned for my 5 month loc update!
I've seen so much transformation since I began my journey. I'm loving every minute of it! I have put anembellishmentin for each month I've had them. I'll show you guys each bead in my next video and put in my next one.
A year and a half ago I was still blow drying and straightening my hair every single day. A year ago I was letting it go curly and juststraighteningmy bangs. Spending so much time on my hair was getting super old... I thought when I stopped straightening that I'd feel free of the daily hair fuss. I still spent a lot of money of products and a lot of time fixing it throughout the day. Now I spend about $10 every couple months on my dread shampoo bars and almost no time fussing with my hair. I do take time to wash my dreads to make sure they stay squeaky clean and sometimes separate, but that's it. I feel like I have so much more time each day to spend doing things that I love, as opposed to making sure each strand of hair is in place. I've been given a freedom that I wouldn't trade for anything.Making the decision to start dreading was an easy one. My natural hair is coarse, frizzy and dry. I got so tired of fighting the knots. I feel like I didn't even have to make a decision; My hair did.
