dreads and stereotypes


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I actually just graduated college this year and now I'm moving on to University for four years, But I agree completely with Sister Rags. It really does depend on where you are.

important history spirituality and religious significance of dreadlocks


History and Religious Significance

I found both articles to be quite interesting, they really drive home the point that dreadlocks are a life style, not a fashion statement. Personally, I love History and find religion to be quite fascinating (even if I myself am essentially an atheist) so it was really neat to read about the spread through Africa. The best part of it all is how each religious sect would have a different take on dreadlocks or just hair in general and how it served in the grand scheme of things. Each group would have developed their own beliefs over time therefore expanding the things dreadlocks could mean and opening them to so many more wonderful interpretations, which really explains how we jumped from priests the purest otf all being the only ones to really dread to modern Rastafarianism or even just Dreadlocks as a trend.To me, as a non religious person, I see dreads and dreading as choosing to let go of societal norms and be free to just be myself, do what essentially comes natural and in a way my own belifes seem to reflect what I've just read (though admittedly not entirely). Still I think that in a modern world where God is essentially dead some of these commandments hold true, whether as a religious following assuring passage to a good after life or even just as something to live ones life by they essnetialy encourage being an all around good person. Which should really be the point of anything in my opinion.The most interesting part of history is really watching how spirituality changes to reflect the changes in the world and yet how older beliefs like these 77 comandments could really hold true today.The Too long, didn't read version; I think both articles are quite fascinating and though what they suggest dreadlocks really mean is an older religious belief it really hold true today to some degree. But more in a personal sense rather than an entirely religious one.Sorry if I rambled a bit haha, But I might like to take a shot at writing something up about the History of Dreadlocks, there's just so much to learn and it really is fascinating to read about.

Best/Worst washing methods


General Questions

I've been using an Organic Shampoo as well as the Baking Soda washes, I found the baking soda was really irritating my scalp when I was using it frequently (I believe someone posted a topic about it a while back, they were getting yellow scaby-things I had a bit of that going on so I decided to ease up on it a bit).The Shampoo is A Green Tea-Lime Called "Kiss my Face" It doesn't leave any residues and it's all natural oils It's been working quite well for me. I use that for regular washes and then do Baking soda once every two weeks or so.So maybe try alternating? It's been working really well for me because I don't think it's the shampoo that makes your hair knott up, but rather how clean it is. Mine unraveled a bit at first, but I'm into my second month now and everything's tightened up a bit more. So what you're doings probably fine Just make sure there aren't any funky sounding chemicals in the ingredients.

Dread Beads.


General Questions

I put mine in pretty much at the same time I finished dreading, so like everyone else said, no worries really :)I have a glass one, three wooden ones and a bone one right now, But I've found that the glass one can get a little uncomfortable when I'm trying to sleep and I usually have to take it out where the wood ones and the bone one aren't a bother at all? I dunno if it'll be the same for you but it's a heads up I guess? Haha... Plastic could be nice like if it were a cool lookin' bead?
