Whats with the negativity?


Introduce Yourself

It's been 10 months since I began my dreads and I have no regrets, my husband has been supportive. Friends and family really didn't comment at all and have not said anything to me about my hair since I began this journey. I know this is because they don't like it. Before dreads my hair was a frequent topic as everyone loved how long it was and thought it was beautiful. I haven't minded the fact that they all kept quiet as I felt if they had nothing nice to say about it they were good enough to keep it to themselves.last week was my birthday and one of my family who i dont see often finally said something, it was all negative and once he started he just couldn't stop paying out on me about my hair. the funny thing is he has friends who have dreads, his point was that mine weren't real because I didn't get them done at the hair dressers. And it was all other rude rubbish about how shit my hair was etc...I didn't realise that I would be so offended but for some reason this really hurt!I thought I was getting over worrying about what people thought. judging from my reaction though I think I have a long way to go.so on with the journey, this can only make me stronger, more aware, and helps me to see who the people are in my life that really care.Has anyone else experienced this? What is the best reaction to these kind of negative comments, I want to a be a peaceful person! But these things still seem to bother me?

Getting Your Dreads Dry


Dread Maintenance

Hi Kayla, I like to wash my hair first thing in the morning and once I,ve squished out the excess water in the shower I wrap it up turban stylyin a bath towel, after about 15 mins I put a fresh towel on and leave for another 15, then I just let my babies loose to air dry for the rest of the day. It's winter here at the mo so if I can't get out in the sun during the day I sometimes give em a bit of a blast with with the hair dryer on cold for a few minutes. And vuala! fluffy dry dreads :)

Washing dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Ive had my dreads for 8 months now and have pretty much only used bs and acv wash, but after this my scalp always seems a bit itchy and dry, last week I tried some of my kids shampoo as I was in a hurry and didn't mix up the usual wash, i used Gaia baby shampoo which is all natural, my hair wasn't at all itchy afterwards and I was wondering if anyone else has used this and if anyone knows if it leaves a residue, the bottle says its good for dry skin and contains only natural organic ingredients.Would love to hear from anyone about this topicThanks katoxx

some helpful information about natural dread care :)


Dread Maintenance

Thanks for the info, my dreads are only 5 months old and they feel a bit dry, I am all out of aloe and my plant is looking very sad, do you think coconut oil would slow up my hair locking too much if I use just on my scalp? I was also wondering if I should warm it up before I use it because the oil I have is in a pretty solid form.
