For those swimmers out there


Dread Maintenance

I got a chance to fly in a glider when I was 10 or 11. It was nice back then. But now, I wouldn't do it. I could have something to do with my meds. One of the side effects is nausea I don't get nauseous when I'm on the ground, and at a reasonable dose. But the minute gravity changes, I feel it. If I ever get to stop taking these pills, I may give it another shot

The "Weed Smoking Hippy" Stereotype


General Talk

It may be a little hard to find, but look into Upper Dublin High School's survey on drug use. I believe it was released in 2007. The survey was taken in my senior year ('05), bt the results were so absurd that they were afraid to release it for 2 years. I believe it showed that 95% of seniors drank alcohol regularly. Something in the 70% area smoked pot regularly. They also asked about other drugs. But in every single category, UD used each substance more than the national average by no less than 10%.

I was the only person in there that had dreadlocks.

I did smoke then, but no I don't It's been 6 years since I quit. When people ask me where the weed's at, I ask them "Do I look like a pothead to you?". And I laugh. They laugh and the tension is gone.

FUZZY!


Introduce Yourself

Just like you said... You are new to locks. They are babies. Mature locks take, on average, a year to form. Nothing you do will make them form over night. Baby locks need to have between 1-3 inches of straight hair at the roots. This straight hair will allow new growth to snag and get tangled into the lock. As they mature the roots will tighten to between 1/4 - 1 inch.

The frizzies need to be there as well. Dreadlocks are mad of tangled knotted hair. If your hair was straight, it wouldn't knot. Those fuzzies get tangled with other fuzzies and create knots. Those knots get tangled with other fuzzies and create new knots. This process goes on and on until a lock forms.

Washing 2-3 times a week helps knots form.

Don't towel try. If you have to use a towel because it's cold out, just pat your head. DON'T rub your head. That will only undo knots.

Everyone has a fuzzy phase. Check out my pics of my playing with bubbles. That was me about a year into my journey.

HELP HELP HELP


Dread Maintenance

It's always a good idea to stop crocheting. If you didn't loose much hair after you took them out, then that's great. Let them grow as they want to. Don't try to force them any which way this time around

Advice needed


General Questions

It looks just fine.

I'd bet you sleep on your back. Right? Whatever side you sleep on tends to knot up much faster. If you can switch it up, and sleep on either side, they will tangle faster and start to catch up.

Also, try a sea salt rinse or spray before your normal wash. Salt will help dry out your hair and makes it much easier to tangle. But don't use i if you're not going to wash them within 2 hours.

Gotcha. Yeah, it that case, just BS would be better. If it stops being oily, you can start adding a VERY tiny amount of ACV into your routine maybe once a week and see if it stays dry.

They look fantastic.

Is your hair naturally oily? If not, then you should be using the ACV rinse after the BS wash. Obviously rinse out the BS well first. But if your hair isn't oily already, you will need to reset the pH level of your scalp.

ACV won't make your hair oily. I don't want you to get that impression. What I am saying is that Oily hair and scalp means it is too acidic. Then you would want to only wash with BS to raise the pH. But if your hair is normal, the BS is raising the pH of your scalp too much and not being reset. the ACV will do that. Just BS will make your hair brittle and dry. If it doesn't itch, you are lucky

I don't know how I missed this. I was going to try and make a stop motion with yarn for how locks should develop. But you made it for me with real hair on a real person. My hero
