Not dread related but I am so scared I am gonna lose my little brother.... Help!


Life Issues Facing Dreads

No advice on the drugs...seems like you have really got a lot of support for your brother. I hope this turns out well and he gets on the right path soon :) But I would make sure you have a formal letter written (maybe even notarized) as an "eviction notice" to his girlfriend. In our state you have to give them at least 30 days but until one is issued and since she has been living there law enforcement may not be able to just "kick her out" for you. Although if you mention the drugs they would probably take care of that problem :)

Newbie :)


Introduce Yourself

Thank you! I saw your comment :) The only thing bad about them being curly are the ones that really curl up like a spiral .....because then If I am trying to tame them down a bit I have those that stick straight out at the sides :) I guess that gives them a little personality :)Sister Rags said:
I left a comment for you on your page...your curliesdreadies are adorable : )

Tried Twist and Rip


Dreading Methods

May just depend on your hair? Mine is curly and gets knotted very easy so that may be why its working ok for me. My husband backcombed his and they seem to be falling out and he has been having me twist rip his ends but that doesnt stay in either...Sister Rags said:
I can't understand why, but twist & rip has not worked for me unless I put a bead on to hold the t&r. T&r Works just like back-combing does for me...I think the hair is "really" locked, but it doesn't stay locked.

Children with Dreadlocks??


Dreads in the Family

I would let my children have dreads. But I would want them to be at an age to choose for themselves and be able to understand how to take care of them :) (just like if my youngest would want her ears pierced) If my 5yr old asked right now for dreads I would be all for it (although her biological father would pry crap his pants) :)

Dealing with Family?


Dreads in the Family

I have had lots of negative comments. I had my first child at 17 I attachment parent, we dont vax, we co sleep, i breast feed, wear my baby, have dreads, my husband has dreads and hes taking on glass blowing...someone ALWAYS has something to say. I always educate myself before making any decision so if they have a question I am always prepared to give an educated answer BUT if I am not in the mood for a lot of discussion. I just do not give them any real reaction. I tend to just be myself and be happy I am who I am. Eventually you family will accept you for who you are. Just try to brush away anything negative you hear. :)

the spirituality of dreading (regardless of religion or lack of)


History and Religious Significance

I agree with all of this. :) Its hard for me to explain to people that dreads are not all about "hair style" a lot dont realize there is something very spiritual about having dreadlocks :)

How Long should my hair be before i start dreading it?


General Questions

What method are you using? Backcombing is not the greatest and you will lose a LOT of length. The first time I got dreads my hair was past my shoulders and just under my neck when they got tight. Although I have pretty nappy hair :)I used the twist and rip this time and my hair has barely shrunk at all and they look nice for just getting them.The natural route is really best but I just am not patient enough haha its one of my faults :)
