Dread Maintenance

The great thing in life is that we are all different. Our dreads have their own fingerprints, their own look. We have different hair textures and so we have our own journey, our own time in which we dreads. Natty, you will be fine and wake up one morning and go WOW, look what happened. Just make sure you stay away from regular shampoos, as many have ingredients to soften the hair which slows down the knotting process. Enjoy your Journey, it will be a blast for ya!

i got my first tam! 60% wool 40% hemp

Hi Spencer, never wash wool in hot water or it will shrink, as SE said, also never put in dry, this will have the same effect. Peace

soap for dreads


Dread Maintenance

You know what, I ran out of salt for my water softener, so perhaps my water was too hard the day I had a bath with it. I know have my salt in the softener again and will try it and let you all know how it goes. It will be interesting to see the the hardness of the water made the difference. Peace all

Hi Karen. I am not vegan, so I have a question. If the hair of sheep is shaved off, and an animal is not harmed, why do vegans not wear wool? I understand leather etc...but not wool.

Us Canadian do like our touques Eh, but as SE said, they gotta be loose, the hair would be compacted with any beanie style hat. With my loose tam, as I move my head, the hair inside is getting moved around, helping the dreading process, if it was tight it would not do this.

Ask your mom, grandma or friends mom to knit you one. They just have to make lots of room in it for ya.

dread shampoo by Lush


Dread Maintenance

I am going to try I Love Juicy in the next couple of weeks and will post how it works. Would love to order from dreadlockshampoo, but with shipping charges & Canadian HST collected by the shipper, it can get pricey, and many of us are pinching pennies right now. I can drive to Lush to get their products.

If anyone else has tried though, please let me know. Thanks & Cheers

Dreads in the Wild


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Cavemen had dreads. No shampooing, nor mirrors, no nothing... but dreads.

I need motivation..:/


Introduce Yourself

You are still in mourning even if you do not realize it. If you are able to, take a year off school and go fishing, hang at the beach and reflect. The loss of a mother has so many faucets to it, let the school know that you need the time (semester or year). to deal with your emotions and to get re motivated for your studies. Who knows, in your refection time you may take a different direction in your life. My thoughts will be with you, Peace
