A Compliment !?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

My mother loathed the idea of me growing dreads originally, but after four, maybe five months, she's totally digging it. You just gotta lead them into it slowly. :D

dreadlockssite mega update comming soon-extended forums


General Talk

Just a note for when you aren't busy, but it might be good to clean up the thread list for religions. Wiccan and Norse Gods should be sub-forums of pagan, in my opinion, and Norse Gods would be better off being called Odinism/Asatru (cuz Norse Gods is pretty generalized).

If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

You're being oversensitive, friend. No one can attack you over the magical interweb. Oh, and -- please -- learn proper grammar before being a supremacist. You're making yourself look childish to those who do understand the syntax of the English language.

Now, on the subject of crocheting, try to understand that with diversity comes differing opinions (e.g., not everyone who disagrees with you is attacking you). Soaring Eagle may come off as pushy to the meek, but all in all he is trying to help you. He's seen several cases of crocheting causing the breaking of hairs, which leads to further crocheting -- in most cases, due to the paranoia (or vanity) of the individual. I advise you consider that a few loose hairs will not make you a freak of society. No one will notice, or even care. If you feel so compelled to crochet your hair, then do so. No one is holding your hand, and no one will stop you. Remember: arguments are two-sided. If someone disagrees, you don't have to argue. Thank you.

Now, about the "poor little follicles" you so like to belittle, consider that others have different views (again, diversity). To many here, dreadlocks are spiritual, as is the journey. Let's try not to be guilty of what we lambaste (e.g., let's try not to attack others when we so strongly criticize the attacking). Let us also try to see through the eyes of those who might consider hair differently.

Call this post an attack if you will. I'm willing to be the bad guy "attacking" you over the internet if it might teach you something, as unlikely as that may be.

That's totally a personal attack. Saying that correct spelling and language are not important is pretty much the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard...but I'm going to allow you that opinion. I'm a big fan of Skill teacher, dude's a stud. Where's this video of falling off crocheted dreads? I'd really like to see it. There's one thing to remember here, about all this "damage" to hair talk...it's just hair. It doesn't feel pain and it grows back, so let's not get too wrapped up in what we're doing to our poor little follicles.

Going Natural! I have some Q's though!


Dreading Methods

Welcome to the site first of all :D Now, to the questions. I'll answer as best as I can, since our hair is similar.

1. Dreads are basically circular mats, really. When the hair mats, it's on the way to becoming a dread.

2. Twice a week is good. Once a week is what I do, since I don't get oily at all. Make sure to use residue-free shampoo and don't condition.

3. For curlier hair, it seems around 8 months to 1 year and 2 months is usual. I'm about half-way to dreads (I think) at 5-6ish months.

so... TNR or natural


Dreading Methods

Maaaan, this all sounds like so much trouble for dreadlocks. If ya just stop touching it, it'll dread. Besides, a lot of people think dreads look better when the sections vary.
