dreadlocks grown from birth


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures


i was just at the rainbow gathering in Vermont when i saw this kid with these absolutely awe inspiring dreads

he had the most amazing congos too

His name is gil, I asked him how old his dreads were and he said "15 years"

I didn't think about it till he walked away and asked someone "how old do you think that kid was' and they responded 'he is 15"

I later spoke to his mother who said he grew them from birth and was thinking of cutting his beautiful dreadlocks because oif all the attention he gets, (at rainbow gatherings 100% positive, outside the gatherings a lot negative) he was also tired of being stopped on the street every few steps by people wanting to take his photo

The funny part about all this is, every person i talked to who mentioned him, didn't talk much about his hair, but about how bright he was, how smart and talented

seems hes more well known (at least in rainbow circles) for his personality then his hair

His mom sent me this photo, I told him and her i would post these here and requested he join our community knowing the lovely wonderful people here would give him all the love and support he needs to keep his dreads, not only from birth..but till death

lets give him the support he needs to continue his dreadlocks journey throughout life and to help him deal with any negativity he may face

Messy bun


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

it will slow the process some but passing out from heat strokes not a better option

only recommendations, use your dreads not the band to tie it up and leave it down whenever possible..like indoors out of the heat

last recommendations not so much about dreads...

move away from the coast to higher ground (i got to do that myself) with climate change, and the increase in earthquakes from fracking  and all that, (like excessive heat and drought causing severe wildfires) cali isn't the safest place to live (from research the mountains in tennasee might be safest but that's factoring in the way overdue eruption of the Yellowstone super volcanoe)

Shampoo content problem


Dread Products

the sodium laurel sulphate is a skin irritant, that causes cancer dry itchy scalp etc if  you avoid that and hot water and wash often enough you shouldn't need any oils (or rarely)

i'm uncertain about the rest in that shampoo, it looks like very few ingredients so likely might be ok except for the sls which was recommended be removed from all products

heres the thing with sls..yes it can cause dandruff psoriasis etc  causing irritated itchy skin

but its also a cancer risk..though a minor 1 if you only used 1 product with sls

but if you read the ingredients in most cleaning products including toothpaste and mouthwash its in almost all of them

that makes it a significant cancer risk since its in almost everything you use

so because of that 1 single ingredient id not recommend it

you could most likely get dr bronners in Africa and use that for now (dilute it a lot ..like 12 ior more times more water then soap)

Starting out?


Introduce Yourself

well

theres no methods needed..you don't have to "get dreads" just grow dreadlocks

dreadlocks are your hairs natural state..  all hair wants to be dreadlocks it tries to be every day and theres a billion dollar industry just in preventing hair from dreading

the only method besides natural that's even worth considering for you would be twist and rip

but read the dreaducation page it covers the good and bad of all methods

Would my hair dread? If so what would it look like?


Introduce Yourself

all hair will dread some fine hair dreads extremely fast others pretty slow

what itwould look like is impossible to guess since they always turn out unique (provided you do it right)

and how they will look will change drasticly till they are mature

Dread shampoo that ships from the UK


Dread Maintenance

i really couldn't say for sure

but if its 10 times the price of bronners you might as well go with the best and get www.dreadlockshampoo.com right

i wish one of our real shampoo experts was still around

it doesn't seem like it would be an issue in hard water but i cant guarantee that

most soaps .. pure soaps.. don't work in hard water that's why detergents were made

true soaps are saponified oils

lil trivia.  i never watched boned but flipping through the channels saw 1 where they exumed the corpse of a child

and opened the casket and out poured like 50 gallons of soap

because kids tend to be chubby (and happens to many heavy people) and the ground was high in lye, the ground saponified the fats in the body turning it to soap

so saponification is the process off using a caustic material (lye) to break down oils into soap

the shampoo looks ok to me  though i would look up the ones with * and se what those are

Newbie


Introduce Yourself

yea I've seen it before ..you will have to keep an eye ion it to make sure it doesn't form huge dreads but till its knotting up its best to not touch it

you could be pulling apart sections before they get a chance to even start to dread
