Greetings from Greece


Introduce Yourself

Well, that's why I say 'baby dread' because it's only been a month since I stopped brushing my hair. So it doesn't look like a dreadlock at all, but I'm hoping it will become one eventually. I'll try and make a picture of it tomorrow, maybe that will help explain it, need to post my progress anyway.

Greetings from Greece


Introduce Yourself

Welcome! I just started out as well and also have rather oily hair, but I already have quite some tangles and possibly a skinny baby dread forming (in the front of all places) so I don't think you have to worry about your hair being oily :)

drying my hair after washing (freeform, just started)


Dread Maintenance

So I'm about one month into my journey (I'm posting a progress thing soon), I don't have a hair dryer or anything and I just use simple organic cotton towels. I usually just try and rub my hair in all directions to dry it a bit, but never for too long because I don't want to mess with it too much. Then I often shake my head about a bit once I'm out of the bathroom.

I'm slightly worried that drying my hair with a towel might slow down the progress. Should I be worried? I'm trying to just not care and make sure my hair is dry before I go to bed, but if there's anything I can do different to help my baby roots to form, I'd like that.

I live in Scotland so I'm probably going to get myself a hair dryer once I can afford it, but one that doesn't get too hot, something environmentally friendly I suppose.

What would happen if I combed my hair?


Dread Maintenance

I wouldn't do it either, maybe just wash your hair really really well with some cool water and the dreadlock shampoo if you have it (if you don't have it, try making some tea with rosemary, green tea and a little bit of sea salt and wash your hair with that), maybe all you need is to give your hair a day of extra care to feel better about it :)

But it's your hair, if you really feel like brushing your hair and starting over is the way to go, then go for it. You might regret it, so I suggest waiting a little longer to think it over.

@tashtash - that's awesome ^^ and thanks! I actually dyed my hair darker a while ago, it was black for a little while but that has faded by now (I only use henna/indigo). Might dye it with henna again to bring out my natural lighter colours, and also to match my beard which has a lot of red.

I'm almost a whole month into the journey, my hair feels so much better than it did before when I was brushing it often.

thanks guys =) I don't have a lot of great pictures right now, I'm a bit shy too, but I think I might have something I'm alright with sharing.

I'm definitely loving just letting my hair do it's thing, watching the subtle changes happening right now. It's slow going, because my hair isn't as long as I'd like it to be (I had much longer hair, then decided to get a mohawk, but I didn't want to put any chemical crap in it so it didn't last long XD) but I'm pretty patient. About to order a wool tam hat too, will help a lot for my self esteem because I have to travel and go trough a lot of busy areas soon and I like hiding my hair a bit, I wear a kind of headband now, people in my town are used to me looking like a gypsy hippy anyway :P

Also going to order the shampoo this week! Woohoo! :D Can't wait to try it out, hoping the 'goddess' one is lovely, I use flowery soaps and incense all the time too.

edit; uploaded 2 pictures of my first week without brushing my hair =)

Here's hoping a year from now there will be significant difference!

Cool :) Whereabouts are you? I am planning to travel, but my boyfriend is applying for a job in Scotland so we're kind of waiting to see what happens. That's why the shampoo is a bit pricey for me right now, but I'm thinking of getting 3 or 4 bottles, that should be doable.

I listen to all sorts of music, I might share a few random ones every now and then. I think this is a beautiful song.
