Hair un-dreading.


General Questions

I wash my hair once or twice / week, using bars from dreadlockshampoo or from a local producer . I bc wash it maybe three times /year, no acv.
I wrap a towel arond it until it stops dripping and then let it air dry.
I tie it up when im eating or whn itsreallt hot outside, otherwise wearing it loose.

I eat organic vegetarian foodd, no gluten or white rice, no added sugar or artificial sweetner.

About separating... in these three yers and eight months i may have separarted my hair a maximum of ten times. My hair just does not congo or hardly form any dreads. Well yes i have a lot of dreads aswell but it has taken this long to get here. (btw the last picture i posted on here is about a year and nine months old so there have been a lot of progress since then) There is no chanse of them joining together even if i would tie them together with sting.

Regarding chemicals/productes in my life.. I dont use them more then necessary, no fabric softener, no lotions or hairspray, hardly any make up. Hell i havent even used tooth paste for a few years now.

I always, from the beginning, had this feeling of my hair dont want to be dreaded, its not ment to. A year ago i cut bangs, i just coludnt take all the loose hair any more. And there are still a lot, a lot, of loose hair all over.

I dont think i see this as a problem that have to be solved, i just wanted to know if this is a common problem becouse i have tried to explain this many times to different people during these yaers and most of the time i have just gotten the anserw that i need to have more patience and i acctually think this is just the way my hair quality is.

uring these years i have helped others with their dread journey and problems and my advice have always worked out for them but it does not seem to fit for me and my glass hair quality, it surly has a life of its own.

Hair un-dreading.


General Questions

I'm three years and eight months in on my neglect journey and I still have a ton of hair that refuses to dread which have been frustrating for me for most of the time. But what is worse is that pieces of my hair stops dreading. I think it's just the quality of my hair that is not suitable for dreadlocks because I have done everything right from the beginning.
Is this happening to a lot of you or is it just me?

~In need of some love and support here~


Dready love

Classic behavior of someone who abuses .. The behavior will escalate because it is a downward spiral of guilt which he stuns with even stronger and more desperate acts that leads to stronger guilt.

The man will not treat you with respect and love untill he treats himself with the same. And it's NOT your job to fix him.

There is not even need for you to continue to think about him or talk about him. Your job is to concentrate on yourself, what your next step is in your own happiness, how to move forward on your path.

Simple exercise to break negative thought patterns and filling the brain with the ability to choose joy (I promise, it is simple):
Every morning when you wake up, write down five things you are grateful for. It can be anything that you sleep well, the sun shines, that you have acquired insight, that you have great friends, that you ate such a good dinner yesterday .. Anything. Write down, characterized in gratitude, tell them one aloud to yourself and read them several times during the day. At night reflect on them. You will soon notice that the more times you feel gratitude the more you will find to be thankful for.

Also, try every day to think 'today I'll do something I'll thank myself for tomorrow'. It does not have to be something grand every time. Write a letter to a friend maybe, allow yourself to stop and smile, take a bracing walk ...

 

Relax your jaw, making room for the tongue in your mouth. Breathe.

 

When your body is still, your thoughts become still and that is where you will find the answers.

 

And again, listen to the audiobook Choose Joy by Kay Pollak.

Hello darlig!

I feel your worries and pain.
I'll give you the best advice I can and it is to become aware that you, and only you, is the one that makes your choices. After you receive this recognition you can move on.

The next best advice I want to give you is to listen to Kay Pollak - Choosing joy.
It is available as an audio book and is great to hang out with while you take a walk, do the dishes, admire your dreadlocks, when you drink a cup of tea, sitting on the bus .... 

I promise it will help you 
<3

Tried rasul clay, anyone?


Dread Maintenance

I have used before, with my "normal" hair, before dreadlocks that is. And also use it om my face as a mask sometimes, so i know it has a nice cleaning feature to it... How ever its just that I'm not sure if it will damage dreadlocks in the long run, like if it gets stuck inside the dreads and erode from within...

I tried to search the forum and hoped to find some old post on the subject but no succsess. It would be interesting to hear from someone who has extensive experience.

I'm curious, has anyone tried to wash their dreads with Rasul clay?
Can it work or will it be difficult to wash out and get stuck in there?
