Job Interview


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Dont bother that with garbage job man. Hell if you need something that pays better but will more then likely let u keep your dreads see if there are any good manufacturing jobs in your area. A job is better then no job certaintly but i used to run that circus and it sucks.

Hot Date makes me wish i was non-neglect


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I gotta say it does get frustrating at times when your in tha first year, but particularly the first year of waiting forhair growth. I have a date this friday my first one since i left my X and my little baby dreads you know look like trees all over my head. I love the crazy look and i told her straight up about them but she said that its cool. but i admit it is times like this when i wish i had gotten them double twisted instead of gone neglect, just so i had that manicured look for tha date. Oh well just gotta rock that swagga anyways right?

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline


Dreading Methods

Hey man anything that might even prevent further damage ill try heh. I wash bout 3-4 times a week currently. Was doing it five times a week but that dried my scalp out way to much so i cut back. I have been resisting the urge to run my fingers thru that area. The wierd thing is i notice whenever i do a hot oil treamtnent on my scalp, it actually looks better like not noticeable, almost tricking me into thinkingsome of the hair has grown back in. But if i wash it every day and forget to oil treat it you can definatelly see it. Wierd..

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline

Nah i actually never wear hats. I do find myself subconsciously trying tp pull the hair down a little bit to cover the spot though. I tend tomess with that area alot with my fingers. So ill try your witch hazel idea and how often would ya'll think to wash it ? Mind you i have dry african type hair so a little goes a long ways..

Otherwise yea scant see any noticeable issues on the skin aside from the occasional red bump i get every now and then.

Dready head and a Fruitarian body = a perfect philosophical fit


Dreads and Diets


See thats what im saying. Fruit is great and i understand the health benefits, but eating ten mangoes 4 apples bannanas in a day just to meet caloric nutrion requirements seems..odd. Plus fruit contains lots of sugars, natural though they may be.

dude, that's a vegan diet. That's what I and the majority of my family are eating right now (well, not all of it, obviously). Doesn't sound fruitarian to me. I'm really just curious. I look at fruit as a treat. It's like candy to me. I can't imagine building a diet around candy lol

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline


Dreading Methods

It just seems wierd to me that it is only happening on the one side though. I mean, at least if it was equal on both side i could get the edges tripped up like hummingbird lovegorilla. I am looking into getting a tea tree oil shampoo as well because like i said i sometimes feel a slight burning, tingling sensation on that side that isnt present on the other. So i wonder if it could be that.

Yea i read some of your post SE about the alopecia and cornrows and it made sense, particularly since that is a hairstyle lot of folks wear almost every day. Again tho i wonder; if it is related to my cornrows, why does it seem it has gotten progressively worse? I haven't done that since 09..

What is that vodka rinse recipe you mentioned? Ill try anything at this point. Either way, preciate the support ya'll.

Also not that it necessarily has anything to do with it but i do tend to sleep on that side more 98% of the time which could cause rubbage. Well your responses are apreciated and very thought provoking. SE your idea of using perhaps witch hazel is an interesting one, and panterra i wondered about your idea of perhaps washing a little more often; the idea being of cleansing the scalp more often seems to make sense. If i can get a camera this week and post it i will do so definately.

I almost wonder if it could be a infection of some sort because there are times when i can feel it liek a tingling burn, in a way that my other side does not. Or i could be mistaking that for the scalp being stretched too tight.

As to my age i am twenty three, and male baldness does run on my mothers fathers side. Tho again, the fact that this is only happening on the right side is questionable. I am not vegan and recently started taking a whole foods organic multi-vitamin which i hope will help. I almost wonder if when i used to do cornrows if perhaps my scalp on that side was stretched taut and perhaps never full recovered..? If so that raises a different set of questions all together.

It very well could be from cornrows in 2009 for like three-five months there i got em done up once-twice a month.

stop using those theyre clogging up the pores

but um hair will not recede on 1 side only if it is its not recedingits traumatized from twisting or pulling (i believe i could be wrong)something u had been doing i think caused it

now use a estringent to clean the pores teatree witch hazel something like that

then rosemary on the scalp

theres also in products section 2 discussions with hair tonics 1 that helps hair grow i think its vodka based with i think rosemary maybe nettles

i forget

the castor oils are only gonna make things worse i believe

lets see pics i am fairly certain its from how u styled ot pulling it back twisting braiding or corn rows..

most likely corn rows

i bet its not as noticable as u think too

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline


Dreading Methods

Awhile back i made a post regarding the fact that my hairline was receding somewhat on one side. Months later the problem has only progressed and for the first time i am actually considering shaving my head bald.I know there arefellasout there with amazing locks that have receded hair lines but..well read on.

It is too bad too cause everywhere else is full and thick and sprouted baby dreads. What makes it worse though is that it has only receded on the one side, not on both. Which makes it lookreally uneven, particularly when hair is pulled back, Now i have considered getting the edges/widows peaktrimmed like http://hummingbirdlovegorilla.wordpress.com/to help compensate, though i cant say how it would look on me.

Currently i use a combination of castor oil/jojoba oil on the scalp though i cant report any positive effects yet. So if you know of any other herbs, shampoos, methods,anything at all that are rumored to help stimulate the scalp/regrow hair feel free to post. Thanks much ya'll.
