JUDGE


Introduce Yourself

I've been really lucky here in the UK dreads are kinda seen as Cool ATM and on the whole it's been pretty easy especially in Cornwall where I live. Were basically surrounded completely by beaches and in the surf community etc dreads a really common.But a visit to see my Fianc's family in land a bit wasn't so pleasant. They were rude to say the least. LolAt the end of the day they can be as Judging, rude, offensive or condescending as they like. They are simply making cases for the proving of their own ignorance! See like alot of things we know what we are taught which is often misguided.When my mother in law to be said "those things are discusting cause you have to have bugs in your hair" I took great pleasure in telling her "yes doodle bugs knit dreads" should have seen her face when I offered her one or two!I eventually explained and she has changed her opinion on dreads. She even helped me separate them last night!

O....k....


Dread Maintenance

I woke this morning (insert Blues Riff Here)And two of my skinnier dreads had completely un ravelled! Just lest with some knotty bits lol.Weird seeing as they were 2 months old nearly. I have just palm rolled em to get them tangling up enough to keep em separated and heaved em back in my Tam. Their re tangling very fast.Is it really common for this two months in? I'm not bothered I'm purely curious. I'm actually a little excited that I'm gonna get to see the neglect process happen on a couple of dreads.Can I expect lots more of this in coming weeks?

tips for taking care a brand new dreadies?


Dread Maintenance

You can wash em now! I dont trust johnsons baby shampoo but it might work but its bloody pricey!Clean hair dreads faster! I'm using SEs famous BS ACV routine and it's spot on!Grab a 2 litre jug heave in 5 tablespoons of baking Soda (bicarbonate of soda) and a few drops of lavender essential oil(kills mould and the like) if ya like a little Rosemary to tame the scalp and fill with hot water.Let cool a little whilst you wet your noggin and pour over your head.Leave in for 7-10mins and rince real well.Then add 6 tablespoons of vinegar (any will do but Apple Cider Vinegar is the one of choice) to your clean jug and fill with water. Pour over your dreads and rince out after a few seconds. Longer you leave it in the softer your pics feel. But baby dreads best keep time short.Cheap easy and no nasty chemicals or residues.

Dreading Methods

I have 45 dreads and I'm wondering how much they will thicken up if at all? After 2 months I'm noticing a shortening. Will they expand to the size of the section (1 inch)

Job interview?!?!


Introduce Yourself

I'm a full time musician and producer but alas not enough money to pay The old taxman...So got an interview as a electronics and audio salesman. How do I make my 1 & 1/2 month old dreads look sweet on the day?After the day I'm going to go back to normal but I need to look smart as f**k on the day. They are somewhat fluffy at the moment. But thanks to the advice here, wax free, and locking up nicely.
