Moving Forward With Nature: My Dreadlock Journal


Member Journals and Timelines

4 years 3 months,

they are very hard to fit in the photo frame, that is both annoying and making me proud. 

I have been trying to wear them in different ways to fix the parting issue, but what I have just now realized works for my parting issue is making sure the loose hair at the root is going in the proper direction for the parting, but so far that seems to be the thing that has helped the most.

Question on Roots


Dread Maintenance

I've tried wearing it different ways, that didn't really help seem to help it. As for the deep clean do you mean a baking soda & apple cider vinegar deep clean? If so, I stopped doing those due to the damage they can do to dreads.

To Congo Or Not To Congo


General Questions

I'm probably going to just allow any baby dreads to join where they feel like joining and leave it at that, as I am not so sure I want to just cease literally all separation of my dreads.

Question on Roots


Dread Maintenance

During the last year, I had used a soap that was a little overly conditioning, and this left my roots a bit looser than they had been in the past. I have been trying to fix this using sea salt sprays weekly and simply washing my dreads regularly (On average about once a week). How long should it take for my roots to fix themselves again?

I was also wondering on a related note if the parting going down the top of my crown ever going to fully close up or if that is just the way the parting is? Attached is a photo I just took of my still drying dreads, but the top of my head appears to be dry.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

Yeah, what you just described is pretty much the type of practice I would love to do, haha, I'm often called a hippie by people.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

I do truly hope that is the case. I was once told by a psychologist that to get a job in psychology I couldn't get large piercings, (at the time and even now I still think about gauging my ears) I know your point is correct that it shouldn't matter about how people look with jobs, but it still sadly is the case, in many fields and the psychology field as far as the mainstream branch goes, which is the part that fits the 'average joe' type of image.  I personally want to get into transpersonal psychology, which I am hoping will have a more elastic dress/appearance code - and the techniques and theories feel like they will accomplish more for the clients. (although I am not currently in grad school or even looking into it at this point).

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

Yeah I get where you're coming from, which that same spirit is why I regret the trim, I mean the other part of it was that my immediate family sort of talked me into trimming it. ....another example of why listening to others about the way one looks backfires like crazy. For reference the field I am trying to get into is psychology, which is a tiny bit image based....so thus why I trimmed, but again regret that. Not entirely sure when I'll start the re-growth....part of me wants to hold off for some kind of meaningful date, so that I can track the growth....but having said that, that sounds like too much work (as I did do that for a while last time)

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

I actually cut my beard short about a week ago, as I am hoping to start applying for positions within my degree's field, but I really do regret having shaved it off, so when I am able to, I am gonna grow my beard out again, but I'm not entirely sure I'll lock it or not.

Edit: I do appreciate your guys' feedback on beardlocks though, I do think that maybe there will come a day when I do that journey too, but right now since I will probably be interviewing, I probably have to keep my beard short.

I needed a change, so I trimmed my beard short. I might grow it back out again in the future.

Today marks my 4 years of this journey, and I really do not plan to cut them off...although I am slowly thinking I might trim them at some future date, but I am letting time tell on that part. Here are a few photos of them as they are now.
