What made you start your "Journey"?


Introduce Yourself

I've been working in summer camp for 3 years. It changed my life, and the vision I have of it. This summer, I decided to ask one of the couselors I admire the most (for his way with children and his knowledge of the woods) to dread my head. He used T&R, no wax and lots of patience. Alongside with that, he tought me stuff about plants and ... well, he tought me to relax.To me, my dreadies are a pillow, a comfort, sometimes an armor, but most of all, roots.Also, about a week and a half ago, my gorgeous boyfriend decided he wanted some too. He has long blond curly hair and it would always tangle up into one mono-dread after one week of not washing. He saw it as the 'natural' thing to do. He didn't like the perspective of having to separate sections if he went natural.So I did T&R on him, patiently, for the straight 5 hours it took. Yup, to my great admiration, he insisted on doing it all in one sitting. And well, now, he's proud of finally letting his beautiful mane down :)

Dandruff ;[


Dread Maintenance

I used to have loads of dandruff, in the early stages. It seems to have settled down, as the monts went by...

BS/ACV question


Dread Maintenance

Dude, seriously, you just can't do anything stupid. It's baking soda, not napalm!But seriously, try increasing by a half tbs per cup each time you wash. You'll see what works best for you. :)I wish you luck, and many more good things!

phatties or skinny dreads?


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Your dreads are siiick! ...but in a healthy way ;)I really have medium sized dreads....though I do have a couple of thin ones around my face...Thing is, I didn't want huge fatties to start with (I'm only 4 months in, so tey'll eventually get fat. I think.) 'cause I was worried about my scull. Also, thin ones are out of question for me. I want big, strong, lion-like dreads. And also... I have the biggest fear that one of them will just pop off.. They're big and strong and I care for them, but having the sectionning a bit bigger gives me a bit more comfort...

Dreads back?


General Questions

Shure! There's always the sleave trick (you put a cut shirt sleave around your head like a band) or....My magic solution!Lemme essplain....You pick one of your pesky front dreads, and you roll it around one of the ones that already points back.Tha-Dah!Magique, don't ya think?

Hair Shrinkage on young locks.


General Questions

My locks are made from T&R, and I maybe lost 2 to 3 inches, but no more. And at 4 months, they seem to be growing again :)A friend suggested that it might be because since I had T&R, I made a ritual of giving myself scalp massages. She says it promotes growth. I just like the way it feels at the end of the day. ... tough the best is in the shower, with nice smelling stuff :) Hmmm... lavander oil!...But I'm keeping my eyes peeled. Shrinkage might be just around the bend! (or twist. or loop. or kink ;))

How do you wear your dreadlocks to work?


dreads jobs employment issues

I work in a clothing store, mostly selling urban attire to 25-55 year olds.I wear my dreads loose, in two half-pigtails that hold everything back, or in a head band.I also like to braid the dreads that are closer to my forehead in somewhat of a french braid. It keeps my locks out of my face and still looks feminie :)Also, I'm going to a concert tonight and I'm thinking of putting a couple ribbon bows in there...

Front/Back


General Questions

Mine did the exact oposite! The front has always been strong and perrrfect, while the back is finaly starting to dread after 4 monts (well, 'finaly'... It's not really been that long, so I'm just really happy with it!). Then again, I sleep on my sides, never on my back, so...
