he was white, and he did have dreads... but his hair looked kinda greasy,and he said he sometimes puts pommade in it or something(i thought you weren't supposed to do that). the only thing that gets put in my hair is a sea salt and aloe spray that i made and even then its only a light spritz. hahaha i've been down the road of using bunches of products in my hair, i used to tease the life out ofitand spray on buttload of hairspray, and i dont want to go there again

thanks SE=] i'm glad to know i'm not doing something stupid lol

Dread Maintenance

so first, i must say that my hair is a hot mess since i started dreading a month agolol... i separate my hair, but i almost never screw with the loose hairs and i just kinda let it be lol

anywhooo, i went out last night and a dude came up to me and asked if i wash my hair every day because it looks super dry.. i told him thati wash it every 2 or 3 days and that it looks dry becausei don't use any products. he kinda worried me when he said that dreads should only be wash once a week because your hair gets brittle and just snaps off.... i thought it was a bull, but i thought i should ask on here just incase.... i really don't want anyunnecessary breakagelol

i wash 3 times a week, but i've been trying to cut back to 2 times. i use dr. bronners tea tree soap... my hair doesnt seem much more dry to me than when i still used conditioner and didnt have dreads, in fact its still pretty soft, frizzier but soft lol

Do you consider yourself a hippie?


General Talk

i don't consider myself a hippie, but everyone else does lol... idk, i feel like the only reason the call me a hippie is because ill tie dye anything i can get my hands on, i paint and draw on my jeans, and because my grandparents and parents smoke bud with me.... is there evena true defintion of hippie anymore? or is it just what the mainstream sees as people acting in contingence with the counterculture of the 60's and such?

personally, if i everclassified myself as anything i'd say that i'm an eclectic. all the things i've experienced in life are what draws up my make and model. can't really narrow it down any further than that because the way i am and the things i stand for can change with each trial i'm put through and with every new thing i learn.

A new guy needs help :D


Introduce Yourself

haha idk if you'd want my advice, my locks are even newer than yours... but i have naturally fine, straight hair and i have A LOT of it. so, needless to say, i end up with a lot of loose hairs when i wake up or after i wash it, like seriously, whole sections come undone. what works for me is using aloe every few days to kinda separate and tame my hair. i alternate that with a sea salt/water spray mixed with a couple drops each of peppermint, eucalyptus,tea tree and hempseed oil. the aloe works better for binding than the spray, but after a day or two it kinda gets flaky and itchy. the spray really helps with the itchiness andtames the crazy straight pieces... for me at least lol... sooo i hope this helps and i didn't just make myself sound all pretentious. like i said, this is what works for me. =]
