Why I chose to dread...


Introduce Yourself

I know that a lot of people dread for many reasons. Some spiritual/religious reasons. Some for fashion. Some for reasons of their own that don't apply to any of those. I believe I am one of the latter. I can't really explain it but I have always just felt like I needed them. Practically my entire adult life I have had long hair (minus a stint in the army). And for this entire time, every time I looked in the mirror I always half expected to see a dreadlocked me looking back. Its been like that since I was a teen. I even made an attempt at dreads as a kid that turned out to be some seriously nasty wax shitlocks.I also feel tgat this is the natural order of things. That this is the way I am supposed to look. Even since I made the decision today to start dreading, I feel a tremendous relief. Like something told me this is the way it should be. And for some reason it gives me a sense of connection to the past, if that makes any sense. I guess what I mean to say is that I am dreading for intensely personal reasons that I cannot yet fully explain. But it feels right...

Well I can tell you this. I took a shower earlier and just let my hair drip dry. For some reason this. makes it a lil curly/wavy. It has now completely dried and you can clearly see which pieces of hair favor each other. I think with a little saltwater and some patience my hair will dread pretty quickly.

Awesome! Thank you again so much. I also live in close proximity to the ocean so I may go take a dip in the salt water every so often. Should I limit this to a certain frequency?

Ok. And how often should I wash. My hair is pretty long and when I don't use conditioner or brush it will tangle and mat very nicely after getting wet.

Thanks eagle! Also I work out in the florida sun all day and sweat profusely. Sometimes my hair will be soaked in sweat. Will this cause problems? Also is there anything I need to know about natural dreading? Should I do any kind of seperation at the beginning? I can't express how thankfull I am to have your help and advice!
