Wool pillow case


Dread Maintenance

Wool helps, but like Eagle said it'll cause tons of frizzies. Plus it's really warm in the summer. If you want, you could just get a normal cotton pillow case, but something like 200 count thread. That'll be comfy, and rough enough that it'll cause some knotting without making your head into a puff ball.

I started mine 5 years ago not knowing about this site (if it's even been around that long). I just went with my gut, which happened to lead me to do practically nothing. And 5 years later I couldn't be happier. Of course there are things you can do to speed up the process, but none of it will help you grow locks any better than another. Locks will grow no matter what you do to them

Parts


Dread Maintenance

Yeah, as you wash and dry and get messy, they will move around and suck in hairs that are on different parts of your head. It'll disappear really quickly. Wearing a tam once in a while will help this along faster, but it's notnecessary.

What do you mean that you can't put your hair up right now?

Thoughts on bone and antler dread beads?


Dread Accessories

I'm in between. I am a vegetarian, but I really want to learn how to hunt. For my own spiritual reasons, I don't eat meat, but I would if I hunted my own food.

That being said, I love Native American cultures. I try to follow their beliefs as much as I can, but I don't know about this one. I agree that it is a homage to the animal that died for you, but is it really correct to adorn yourself, for beauty, in the remains of the dead?

A friend of mine who hunts on the regular, always makes two trips to the same spot. Once to hunt and clean the animal, and then again later on to bury the skull. I always liked his methods. But then again, While learning to hunt, I want to learn to tan as well. Would making clothes from the hides of animals that are functional, rather than for looks, make me a hypocrite?

Thanks for the discussion.

dreadlocks falling out??


General Questions

Do you always have your hair tied back like that? Or at least pretty often?

I have been having the exact same issue with the one lock dead center on my forehead hairline. You can even see it in one of my videos. I make a point to point it out. It's not so prominent in the video, because I recently twisted some hair to try to thicken it up at the root, but to no avail. Since then I have pretty much stopped tieing them back. If I have to, I do it so loosely that they can fall out of the knot easily. I think that it come from when they are tied back that the locks in the very front get pulled a little tighter than others and, bit by bit, hairs get pulled out. You don't really notice it until your root is so thin, like yours is.

I recommend tieing it to the lock closest to it, and for a little while stop pulling your hair back. That means, no hats, bandannas, hair ties. None of it. Just let that one recover and flop around as it pleases. In time it will retangle with the hairs around it and the root will thicken up on it's own

dreadlocks changing more than your hair


General Talk

I hear you with school being busy. I used to be on a few times a day. I'd check every new post and reply as I pleased. The past few weeks have been murder with test after test and lab reports and all sorts of other work to do.

But I know the feeling of looking back at old picks. My locks were really short when they matured. It's fun to look at how they grew over time. When I first started growing them, they were only a few inches long. Now each one is about a foot or longer. It's really great. I can't wait till they are waist length

Washing Natty Dreadlocks And Tips For Beginner


Dreading Methods

You could, but it's not really worth it. Most people find that tams fall off somewhere in the middle of the night. It's really pointless if it's just going to stay on for an hour or something.

Washing Natty Dreadlocks And Tips For Beginner


Dreading Methods

If you where a tam when drying, you're stopping air flow. That will slow drying time considerably, not to mention risking mold. It will also cause all those loose hairs to dry tangled together into one big lock. They you'll have a hell of a time separating them again.

You want to just let them hang free. I don't see much of a problem with shaking your head. Except that it can make you lightheaded and give you a killer headache. But if it doesn't bother you, It should be fine

Naturally occurring dreadlocks a concept difficult to grasp


General Talk

It didn't happen to me, but at my old job, you weren't allowed to have dyed hair. The majority of our customers were old people, and they complained about everyone who had colourful hair. The boss finally said that if you're hair is dye, you either have to cover it, or dye it back. After that, he would refuse to hire people based on if they had dyed hair.
