need advice


Introduce Yourself

Ok, hold on a moment, people. While I hear what you are all saying, this site generally does advise against using locticians, there is no need to be so mean and negative. Is it possible that you could be a loctician that helps people start their dreads off right? Maybe help people section their hair and do some T&R-ing and educating them on how to best take care of their budding locs? I am not sure one could make a good living out of doing just this, but there is no harm in educating yourself and helping others do their locs in a good and healthy way. After all, we could argue that SE is a loctician because he is helping all of us with our locs as well.

I say to Dia Grant, good on you! The best thing you can do is look around this site, find out what is best to do and what is important not to do and see where you can take that information. Don't feel that being a good loctician means that you HAVE to give people dreads the "salon" way!

Dread timeline (so far only 2 months in) backcomb/neglect


Member Journals and Timelines

I am so glad you posted these because this is just about exactly what mine look like! I wonder if I'm on the right or even a good track, so I sometimes look around to see what pictures other people have posted and it makes me feel much better. I think you are looking good and you and I are still very early in our dreading journey so I am thinking we both just need to keep doing what we're doing.. which is mostly nothing! lol! :) Thanks again for sharing!

General Talk

I second that mention of answering the same question over and over - how annoying! But you always patiently answer kindly, which is pretty impressive. I know I would not have that patience, and I admire you for being able to put up with it as graciously as you do.

Wow. I feel like you need a hug! So here's one for you along with a smile and my love >hugs!< You sound very tired and frustrated and I don't blame you. It must take an awful lot of time and energy to run this site and I am sure you don't hear enough thanks. But you know that there are a ton of people on here who do appreciate all your work, your kind words of encouragement, and your advice. So have yourself a nice hot cup of tea, sit back, relax, and know that you are indeed loved and appreciated and so is your site. Don't let the grumblers affect you, you know better anyway. You have helped too many people and have given a voice to so many others to allow a few idiots get you down. I don't generally post much, but this girl loves to log on everyday, poke around, and see if there is anything new to learn and I'm very glad you are here!

Loving the Beginning


Member Journals and Timelines

I'm a little jealous - I'm heading into my 4th month and mine don't look nearly as tight as yours do! Of course my hair is much shorter than yours, but still - I've got loose hairs everywhere! :)

Your hair looks great - I think you are on a great track! I hope mine catches up soon! Can't wait to see more pictures as you continue on in your journey!

The last two pictures came after washing. Every time I washed the palm rolling would come out. So I decided recently to test not rolling them daily. Plus I like reading more than looking in the mirror.

Thanks for the good word. : )

Real hair extensions for dreads or not?


General Questions

My dreads are also short and the front ones don't fit behind my ears either. I have put a number of beads in around my face to keep the dreads (and loose hair) off my face and it is much less annoying! Also I wear a loose cloth wrap around them - like a very wide hair-band during the day to keep everything off my face while I'm at work. I've been having good luck with this, my only complaint is that I have a whole lot of loose hairs around my hair line around my face - but I've seen on here that the hair around your hair line is typically the last to dread, so I just keep putting them back into their beads and wearing my wrap-thing.

Dreading but...


Dread Maintenance

Actually, I don't "tuck" but I do wear a wrap to keep the hair off my face during the day.

soaringeagle said:
i alwats got some in the frint from pushin em back theyre extra slow to dread
but all around the hairline tends to be the last to dread
that lil pointy tail like spot in the back really excited me when it finaly dreaded and the funny thing is altho that points small amnd all it seems to pop new dreads around there semi often
almost like everytime it dreaded into a dread a new crop of loose hair started and dreaded under it


do u push yours behind your ears alot? im sure thats slowin it too
like my beard congoing is going slow cause they always get caught up in the head dreads and pulled unintentionaly

Sadness


General Talk

If it weren't for differences, then how can we learn to appreciate variety? If there weren't conflict how could we learn patience, and the grace needed to deal with them? If it weren't for frustrations, then how could we learn about tolerance and enough about ourselves to know what we like and don't like? Differences and conflict are ultimately opportunities to grow as people.Of course, I can say that much more easily than I can live it - but I try! ;P
