Good or bad way to create dreads?


Dreading Methods

If I can remember correctly, from her other vids, she just does the normal tnr method. No wax. I do think she palm rolls a little, which will work for the shirt term, but won't stick. All the energy you used will be wasted when you wash them. It just comes out anyway. I'm talking from experience

youtube dreadlocks videos the worse place for dreads vids


General Talk

heard, but mostly I'm greeted with nothing but hostility. I keep my cool, but it's like talking to a conservative christian about abortion. It's not worth it

yeah, I never would have found this site if I didn't recognize you, eagle.

It's true, we're all guilty of searching YP for locks. Maybe out of curiosity more than out of information, but we all do it. I used to comment on some posts, but it gets to a point that most people who make them poorly, don't want to hear facts, so I stopped.

check out how much skinnier they are at the root that they are at the middle of the lock. Do you really think that that tiny skinny bit of hair will be strong enough to hold that lock when it gets longer and weighs twice as much? Probably not. That's because of the rubber bands. They squeeze the lock way too tight, even if you do them loosely.

Like everyone else said, it's probably the least damaging to your hair as far as methods go to start locks, but it's not ideal. Plus, they will come about again after the first wash, so it's not really necessary anyway

Questioning Equal opportunity employment.


General Talk

The problem is that franchises like these tend to give the boss free reign to do whatever they want. Like the whole foods I worked at. I complained that the hat would eventually not cover my locks enough to be food safe, and requested a tam with the WF logo on it that I had seen at other stores. I was told no by the boss, and that he was given the authority to run the store like it was his business. When I made the point that by law I was allowed certain leeways, That's when I was told that I'd have to choose between work and my hair. I just complained to corporate, and they let me get the new hat.

If your boss says you have to cut your hair, you can just take it to the next level. But be careful, because they'll know it was you. And it makes you stand out as a trouble maker. Even if you are a great employee, they can, and probably will find the smallest things possible to write you up on until they have enough to fire you. And then it's your job to prove that it was an unjust termination.

Word to the wise, if you get written up, NEVER NEVER sign it. If you do, and then try to complain about them firing you, your signature on those papers will prove that you agreed that what you did was wrong, and that you acceptedresponsibility. You wont be able to win your case

essential oils for dreads and scalp health


Dread Products

completely depends on the oil. Sandlewood can cost between $15-$45 for .5 fl.oz. Peppermint around $6-$9. Tea tree is around that range too. Sandlewood is usually one of, if not the most expensive. Most of the ones you're looking for are anywhere between $6 and $11

.5 oz is actually a decent amount, so don't get turned off because it sounds so small. You can get a few hundred drops out of each bottle

what to do about "cowlicks" ?


Dread Maintenance

I had a very similar issue. Only thing I could tell you is to start letting them congo around the bald spot. grab a few that are close together, but on different side of it, and put a bead on them. If it hasn't started to close up in a few months after stopping crocheting, it might be time to take some action and force a few to combine.

Hi! Question...


Introduce Yourself

There's a post called "top secret" that's got some good info for starters.

As for separating, I'd recommend ever 2-3 washes. That's about once a week. When you separate, just grab two locks and pull them apart till they stop. This separate them at the base too.

They should be anywhere from nickle to quarter size unless you really want super super fat locks. some people make them 1-2 inches, but realize that your wrist is 2 inches wide. Your locks would end up being about that thick.

I like them like that, but it's not for everyone, and the thicker they are, the harder and longer it takes to dry

It's not just walmart though. I worked at a whole foods that had the same metality. 3 girls were forced to redye their hair or cover it up if they wanted to keep their jobs, and I was told that if my hair got too long I'd have to choose between my hair and my job. This coming from Whole Foods.

And no, they are not allowed to impose their rules over your civil liberties
