What length for dreads


Dreading Methods

Nope. No sections. Nature will section it for me. You can twist some stands of hair to help section it off but preferably under 2 conditions:1) You section them kinda randomly (no exact pattern, vary the size of each section a bit) unless you want uniform locks (boring!!)2) Dont over twist!! As in dont twist too tight and dont twist too often. Twist them loosely once and leave em. Maybe twist them again ONE more time a few weeks later if some sections really fall out. But dont get into a habit of needing them to be frequently twisted and neat.It generally should be a natural process for our type of hair so no need to fuss. Either way later on you may or may not want to (or believe you need to) separate some locks. Only real reason to separate is if you dont want certain locks to become too big (called a Congo). Could cause some issues with drying time, comfort and aesthetic appeal (for yourself and maybe to others) but at the end of the day, who cares? Theyre your locks, let them be like you. Free, simple and happy.Im nearing my 1 month pick-free mark on November 1st. My hair is napping and tightening up pretty nicely. I should post a pic on my page soon. Add me as a friend if you like.Peace and love.

What length for dreads


Dreading Methods

Stop combing whenever you're ready. It makes no difference. Either way there will be shrinkage for quite a while, that's basically how locks form. They shrink in a bit and tighten for a while then they get longer. For us nappy haired folk, we can start whenever. Some people start from bald, some start from a 6 inch afro. Either wasy we'll see results because that's just what our hair does (and what most hair does after a longer period of time).I stop picking mine at about an inch 3 weeks ago. I use BS/ACV wash with some essential oils twice a week and i leave in a sea salt water spray once a week for an hour. Simple.Enjoy the journey

Half n' half


Introduce Yourself

i've seen stock photos online of business men and women (mostly black but really makes no difference) with locks down to middle of the back. if people can submit them as stock photos, and if other people purchase and download these photos for different representations of professionals, then i'm more than sure it's an acceptable and welcomed hair style. enjoy the journey!

dreadlockssite iphone apps


General Talk

Similar to the the facebook app, it should send the same alerts you can receive by email from this site, but through the app (example: new posts, replies to desired posts, updates to groups and friends, etc.)I love my iphone and its funny because just the other day I was saying "why isnt there a dreadlocks site app?"I wish i could program (mother killed that dream before i entered university)... oh well. Good luck with finding the right source to build it. If i have the time I would definitely be willing to test and/or add input on what may be needed/useful.

better tagging and titles for a better site


General Talk

I have read and acknowledged this. I was thinking about this issue the other day. Tagging and titling are very important both internally (members) and externally (google search). Hopefully more users will at least acknowledge this in the future

i need biblical references to dreadlocks my church kicked me out for wanting to dread


History and Religious Significance

I agree with a lot of things said here. I just wanted to post my favorite quotes from the discussion."jesus said, come onto me, not get the hell out...my locks have a greatter chance of getting me into heaven then your church ever did anyway.." - SE"The problem with organised religion is exactly that. It's organised." - JFM"they literaly cannot do a thing if they try go pray outside and ask every parrishioner whos going in to join you dont tell them theyre wrong if they go in but persist show up there week afyer week and every week ask again after u get 1 to join u more will followpeople will feel more real faith outside then in" - SE"Yup that is pretty much it. I was raised in a Christian cult and they can twist and turn things to make anything sound like a sin. They want to destroy the individual by putting up standards on appearance so that the individual no longer exist and this person is now part of the collective, I'm not saying that Brandon's church is like this I'm just saying that high control groups use these tactics to control." Jdwood"and come the judgment day his hand shall rake the land and tangle in the locks of thre righteous lifting them to the promised land" - SEFor some reason I picture a big hand (could have more than 4 fingers, maybe no need for a thumb) reaching down out of the sky and pulling up all the deadheads (and those who have just started such as myself, lol) and pulling us to salvation.I don't think I saw a 2nd response from Brandon. I wonder how he's doing

important history spirituality and religious significance of dreadlocks


History and Religious Significance

That's quite similar to my commandment: "limit harm" (to yourself, to others, and to your environment). Most of these commandments or rules are just fear tactics used to manipulate people into following one organization or another. Just my understanding based on experience. Not really looking for a debate or anything :-)

Twisting dreadlocks Theories?


Dread Maintenance

it's funny cause initially i wanted extensions, then i wanted to twist them, now i just can't be bothered. whatever happens, happens (i may do some sectioning). if i'm going to have locs i want them to look like they belong to me naturally not like i forced them to look a certain way. Now i dont like the look of excess scalp or spaghetti locs. i like the thickness that Fifi has
