What made you start your "Journey"?


Introduce Yourself

Yeh your right, their doesn't have to be any real religeous or deep message behind dreads, though some do; if you want dreads and think they look beautiful/cool, who cares what others think. Cherice said:
I'm just prefacing this by saying that I was a kid during the 1990s and back then the epitome of the "cool, rebellious teen" had dreadlocks. Everywhere I went, there they were too!

Maybe it's my subconscience trying to project that same "I'm so cool" attitude, but I just think that they look so beautiful. I don't think I need a better reason to style my hair the way I want other than thinking that it's gorgeous.

I'm only a month in, and at times I do miss having loose hair, but I know that when my dreads mature and actually LOOK like dreads that I'll never regret it. Mine have lost a ton of length already, (my hair was waist length when I started, now it's about 2 inches shorter) and I miss that too, but it's hair, and it'll grow back out. :)

I'm currently LOVING the loops and kinks that are appearing every day and the frizz and mess is so uncontrollable. It makes me feel just as wild and powerful as the lion on the top of this site.

Washing


Dread Maintenance

Ok soo Ive read throughout the site that for neglect dreads, you just use baking soda or residue free soap. So you just like pour it on than wash it off like a normal shampoo. Sorry its a stupid question, but im a noobie

Honey In Month Old Dreads


Dread Maintenance

I was wondering what's the difference between a tam & a beanie? (are beanies smaller or something?) I saw one on this site, but it looks the same as the beanies :S http://www.rastagearshop.com/index8.php?x=RASTA-HATS |^`1A Thanks in advance :-) soaringeagle said:
definately use baking soda or maylees
the nutragena probably helped get the sticky stuff out but not good for normal use

dreading in the back 1st is totaly normal due to how u sleep
put on a wool tam b4 bed and it will help a whole lot

and dont even bother looking at it till month 3

Neglect + Twist & Rip


Dreading Methods

Thanks for your help guys, I haven't used a comb in a while anyways; but what I don't get when my hair gets wet it goes straight, wont the neglect effect take a huge reversal, and mess up the neglect effect im going for? (even with the baking soda )

Neglect + Twist & Rip


Dreading Methods

Hey guys,I was wondering if I could neglect my hair for about 6months than get it twisted a riped? Is that beneficial? will it dread easier?I've still got a while before I can get dreads, as my hair is only about 4inches :-(....but I guess patience plays a large part in getting dreads :-)

we all shaved or started over dreadheadhq/knottyboy dreads the right way, wonder why?


Dreading Methods

I've read throughout the forum 'root flipping' what;s ment by this, (you push the dread in a direction it doesnt want to go?) soaringeagle said:
thats what i said but...he also root flipped so even at 13 months since he interlocked its probly best to start over or risk having them break

ricky williams said:
:D good for you but maybe you should just try and remove the wax and not start all over

Casey Combs said:
I fell for the propaganda put out by knottyboy and dhhq, this is my first set of locks and they are 13 months old. I cut 1.5 inches off of one today and found a waxy core had developed even though I had hardly used any of their "product". I graduate this year and I am determined to walk the line with locks so I will soak and comb out all of the garbage that I was sold and told to put into my hair and start again. There really needs to be more sites like this who actually tell the truth and don't mislead people who have a genuine interest in expressing themselves. I had thought I had done enough homework when I began dread journey but there is so much misinformation out there that I fell into their trap of products. Now that I have a better understanding I look forward to starting my journey over again and have locks that I can show off and be proud of. I hope more people find out the truth sooner than I did.

Honey In Month Old Dreads


Dread Maintenance

Hi Jane,Just checked out your dp because you said your dreads were a month old. They look pretty solid, did you twist and rip or backcomb? Jade said:
Yeah...bears...hope your not a backpacker. :0) My locs are also about a month old and I personally want them to be less maintenance than my straight hair was. So, I'm not putting anything in them that I normally would have put. I just wash it a couple times a week and pull it apart. Right after my shower I palm roll a bit to squeeze out extra water.

I've never thought too much about why, I wanted dreads; I sorta had an emo fringe, than just got over it, evened out my hair...but I think it's cause i've had short hair my whole life, sorta conservative short hair, but now im 17 soo I just figured fuck it dreads look sweet (+ I like Bob marley ^^, but who doesn'?? :P)
