Ceasing Separation


Dreading Methods

I think your dreads are amazing and they give me much courage and reassurance that I'm going the right route! Thank you!

Ceasing Separation


Dreading Methods

:) I feel the same way, that it's holding my hair back from dreading and knotting. And I was spending way too much time maintaining my hair then I ever have before, too. Before I started this journey I would brush and put it in a ponytail and that would be it for the day. Starting this dread was supposed to be freeing and liberating for me, I lost that ideal when I was separating. I feel really good about my decision, and I believe my hair is thanking me!

i only separate a couple times a month now because my hair texture is so fine that i don't think i'll have issues with huge congos or beaver tails any time soon. i was obsessing about it in the beginning too but i think it ultimately set me back in knotting. plus i was putting more time into my hair than before when it wasbrushablewhich defeats the point of letting your hair go:)

Ceasing Separation


Dreading Methods

I will definitely be keeping a watchful eye out for massive dread formations. Its weird but I swear my hair feels happier already. It seems to be rejoicing in it's new found freedom. I don't think I have separated in almost a week.

Ceasing Separation


Dreading Methods

I have decided to cease separating and just go completely free and wild! Although if I do start noticing a gigantic beaver tail or uni-dread there will be some action taken. Whenever I look in the mirror to do maintenance / separation, I just get overwhelmed by the messiness and am always unsure if I am separating too much or not enough. SO, I have decided, screw it, my hair will be allowed to do whatever it wants. I don't need to stress about it, all will be good. I'm barely 2 months and I think my progress is going great. I figure if it's done this great so far then it deserves to keep going by itself with no extra help from me.My question to all of you, is who has gone this route (of no separation)?

Opinions on the skirts I just made, please?


General Talk

Your Welcome! I crochet (hats, blankets, pillow cases, skirts, etc.), make clay beads, baked goods and decorate cupcakes/cakes/cookies. I just started doing peyote stitch bead sleeves for dreads, so I will probably throw that in the mix too. I'm also trying to get back into sewing. I have an antique sewing machine I need to figure out. I'm not a very active seller, but I do all my crafts more for the joy and pleasure it gives me. I've been considering etsy, lol, but I think I'm too lazy to go that far! I think I'll have to stick with friends and family ;)

Thank you! That's a great way to sell things. Sounds like a very fair deal! What is it you make and sell?

Cora Walborn said:

I think they look great! I would go by the rule of 3 when / if you sell them. That's what I normally do with my things. I take the total cost it took me to make the object and multiply it by 3. 1 for the object, 1 for me and 1 for a future project / savings. I also like trading too. Good luck if you choose to sell and good luck with your future crafts :)

My head's a freaking disaster


Help! Save My Dreads

My head gets super itchy after a bs wash and acv rinse. I don't think I am going to do that anymore. I know I rinse thoroughly and then rinse some more, but for some reason my scalp does not care for the bs / acv. Not to mention that my hair looks so flat, limp and oily afterwards (it doesn't feel oily, just looks it). I'm going to stick with just dr. bronner's, my scalp and hair likes it much more.

I think every person's hair and skin is different. The norm doesn't always work for everyone. I wish it did, because everyone raves about how great the results are of the bs / acv, I just don't get those results, and I know I am following the directions to a T.

I think you find what works best for you and not stray. Give Dr. Bronners a try or even a daily clarifying shampoo by sauve, neutrogena or similar.
