My 11 year old daughter wants her hair dreaded???


Dreads in the Family

R☮ZE:

My 12yr old son started his locks in Middle School.  Beforehand, he had watched his Dad and I grow & care for our locks for several years.  My son decided he would rather have locks than his normal curly hair... so we began the process without asking anyone's permission.  I do not allow other organizations to tell me how to parent my child, that includes school administrations.  I did, however, email my son's teacher to let her know that "this is the way it is" and that his locks would be clean, maintained and under control.  At the time, we lived in a small, rural town full of close-minded older people... but I never heard a word from anyone with complaints.  Towards the end of this past school year, my son's locks grew longer... and he ended up making more friends!

If anyone wants to argue the "dreadlock" point, you don't have to throw around religious philosophy... just simply ask them, "What do you think people looked like before the comb was invented?" ... and walk away!


Yes! Great parenting response!

Considering removing dreadlocks


General Talk

Hey!

I'm quite new to all of this unbrushed hair too, I started my journey in April. My longest hair was past my shoulder blades, about 20-24" long, now it's pulled up into itself and the lock is about 3" long! But shrinkage is normal. As long as you can separate the roots I'd say buy a couple bandanas for in public and continue to let your hair do its thing.

the good thing about starting with such short hair is that as your hair grows it will lock itself!

If you haven't yet done so, I highly recommend Vicky's dreadlock shampoo. It's fantastic for all hair types, locked or otherwise.

check out the guides and pages on this site, many of my questions were already answered.

Irie:

So whats up with the strange two threads that have nothing to do with dreads... that were originally posted 2 and 3 years ago on other sites.

Yes. And why does every new thread have a link to click? It's a bit odd. joeclark? what say you?

Separating baby dreads


Dread Maintenance

You've been locking longer than I have! I'm about four months in. For about five weeks I had to be careful to separate my roots without unlocking the hair in each lock. Once each lock was stronger I could get in there and separate more vigorously. I figure I'd rather separate the roots early before it gets too locked in rather than having to really tear them apart later. It's a balance between keeping them all from completely joining and becoming one giant knot, and from messing with the unique, organic journey of locking and twining.

what do you think? 🖤🌙✌️⭐️

Hello and thanks for sharing your knowledge


Introduce Yourself

Our guru, Soaring Eagle is unplugged right now but he is usually right on top of questions, comments and concerns. 

Read up on the Guides and Pages under the Forums heading. All of your questions will be answered. 

I'm a newbie myself, only four months in. But I think you should get some of Vicky's shampoo at www.dreadlockshampoo.com , let your hair do it's own thing. Just keep the roots separated. Our hair is as individual as we each are, the knots, twirls, curls and flat parts.

it is my understanding that the flatness will eventually round itself out and is part of the process. It just takes longer than being forced into a created "loc" instead of allowing the hair to interlock itself.

Relax and let it happen!

having anxiety about shrinkage


General Talk

I am about four months in, my shrinkage is for real! I started with hair past my shoulder blades and my longest hair now makes my shortest locks! But thanks to this site and everyone's advice and sharing I know it's obviously part of the journey, especially when you go as natural as possible. I'm really excited because my hair is looping and has medallions galore! And hey, it's summertime, it's as if I got a short haircut without all the commitment. When I have to go somewhere fancy and tame down my wild side I wear a bandana or wide headband like the Buff. 

I'm loving every part of this journey and I know I'll miss my crazy baby locks when I have matured ones!

Hey joeclark! I'm sorry to hear about your breakage. I want to reiterate what irie said, wax is bad for your hair! Especially locked hair! But don't worry!! There is hope. Browse around on this site, especially the FAQ section. There are a bunch of great people on here who have posted useful information.

soaring eagle is definitely the head dread guru, he's great! I'm sure he'll have some wisdom to drop when he's back from his rainbow gathering.

you should start by heading over to www.dreadlockshampoo.com and get Vicky's Wax B Gone and some liquid shampoo. The prices seem steep but they are the highest quality products with no fillers! A bottle of shampoo last me 4-5 months and I was my hair every 2-3 days!

also, grab some of the lock magic gel.

i know those will help.

dont worry, you can save your locks, it will take a little time and patience. Be at peace with this part of your journey, perhaps you needed to make some more time to care for yourself!

peace!

Should I stick with my neglect method or switch to crochet?


General Questions

Wow! They look phenomenal! Keep letting them do their thing. They will be as unique as you are.

don't ruin their beauty by crocheting, the action of a crochet hook will cut and tear your hair, it would look okay on the outside but the inside would be broken. 

I love my shampoo from www.dreadlockshampoo.com
