Cultural Appropriation blah blah blah


General Talk

Also, let me just say, obviously I know this isn't a "white people site" or something gross like that. I just know that there are a ton of different, open minded people here that generally feel dreadlocks can be worn by anyone, not just a specific race/culture.

... reread my post and it seemed a bit off, so I felt the need to add this in. 🤐

Apparently when "white people" have "locs", they aren't "locs", they are "just matted hair" and we are incorrectly stealing an African hairstyle.🤦

I ended up on one of the threads just saying that if they *are* "real" dreads, then the fact that it happens naturally should be proof that anyone has a right to wear them.

And if they aren't "real" dreads, then they're something else entirely so it shouldn't bother them, and the conversation is irrelevant and flawed from the start. Nobody has responded to that. I'm just racist, I guess.🤷

Oy, I could use a little help here for anyone who is bored or has some extra time/energy to spare.  I was kindly keeping this YouTube thread to myself since it wasn't that big of deal and we've all heard it before, but now I'm getting called a racist and illiterate soo..

It's the first comment that I'm talking about, the one with almost 80 replies that says "Highlighted Comment."  

There are other threads on that video that I'm involved in, but they all seem to be about the same. 

I hope everyone is doing well, staying safe and sane! The boards have kind of dried up lately I've noticed, so I'm not sure if anyone is even going to see this let alone expend the energy of going through all of that.  But I figured it wouldn't hurt anything to throw a link out.

See ya!

Here we go! *natural *


Member Journals and Timelines

Wow! In some of your pictures your hair looks so much like mine. But it seems to be going so much quicker! I wonder why that is.. hm. I guess that extra straightness really makes a difference.

I've been growing mine since December, but I was still brushing the top part..then I ended up combing out the tnr sections I had to start over for a full head of natural, so it's more like the middle of January.. Definitely need to get some more recent updated pictures. But yours seem to be loving their new style and getting right down to business!
Congratulations on such a beautiful start.

is it okay to wet my free form dreads every morning?


Dread Maintenance

I don't really have a for sure answer for you, but I am in the same boat. My hair is so straight and it flattens -.-
I have done the spray bottle thing a handful of times but then I started wondering if actually rinsing would be better.
I guess we will see what the others say. What month are you in?

Loops and zigzags


Dread Maintenance


lopenator: It will. Just stop waiting for it to happen. It makes it take longer. Just live your life and check back some time later.

That's what I've been doing and you're right, it totally makes a difference. When I first started really focusing on this head of dreads it was the month BEFORE school started. Now that I'm back in college I'm noticing huge changes every week or so without even fussing :) When people say leave it and forget it, that's the damn truth. Awesome.

bruiseviolet:

My dreads are about 3 months old now and they're looping like crazy :) 

So jealous. I've got some kinda wavy like and little itty bitty loop bumps but no real LOOPS.. at least not yet. I'm a little concerned I won't get them at all with hair as straight as mine :(

I want all the loops and zig zags (especially craving zig zags) and texture and waviness! I find that stage so beautiful. <3<3 I'm assuming it'll come with time.. I hope! *fingers crossed*

@peaceful-passer
🤣🤭 That was an awesome pun, I'm lovin it.
Also, not to sound like a creeper, but your hair is sooo beautiful. Very inspiring. I've looked at your pictures more than a couple times through the past few weeks when I'm lurking the boards. Gorgeous. 💙

Thank you guys for welcoming me ☺️ I feel like I know some people a bit just by reading through so many messages. I was a tad afraid I'd get no replies.. 😳 but y'all are awesome 🤘🤘

Wow holy cow your story is intense. Thank you for sharing that. But yeah the teen and young adult years are crazy..

I didn't realize my wording 😖 but you hit the nail on the head; I did in fact barely survive overdosing.. twice. Sigh. Also lost my husband to a relapse overdose in 2018.. we were separated at the time. Very rough.

Super rad how long it's been since you touched any of that! I'm sure with all your pain it may have been tempting at times.
