Work


Help! Save My Dreads

yea it will but when its really hot a hat helps keep the dreads up off your back and neck

sometimes i even tuck a chunk of ice up in there too

though that job ..comes with a permenant stench that's really hard to avoid completely

(not to mention the severe cataclysmic ocean depletion)

i know some places those are the only jobs to come by..but if you can find anything else ..even at a pay cut id recommend it

Thinking about shaving my head


General Talk

dread loss depression is very real very profound

a good friend had a very high fever from the flu.. without knowing what he was doing he chopped offhis dreads, when  he recovered and saw what hed done he was suicidal depressed till he could grow them back again

i know when i cut my 1st set i spent a year depressed and feeling a profound loss of self

i would not do it without thinking about itfor many months 1st

Thinking about shaving my head


General Talk

many native tribes shave the head in times of mourning as a way of letting go of the past

its true hair contains a chemical record of all your experiences, dreads, connect all those experiences together  wich is really what wisdom is, the ability to see the connections between everything you experienced

so on 1 hand your dreads help you see why you were that way, why you changed to how you are now etc

but if that was a time of profound suffering separating from it and starting fresh can free you too

either way you lose some connection to that past that shaped who you are

in some cases this is nesacary  especialy if that past was traumatizing

in 1 night its already beginning to section beautifully

separate as often as needed the faster it dreads the more often you got to separate

yes and it can vary some dread faster naturally (ive seen dreads form in hours in rare cases) some however do take a lot longer

but in most cases  it evens out.. your hairwill dread at the same rate but 1 way you get instant gratification then it goes backwards awhile  before progressing

the other way its more about patience it will happen  you just wont see results in a day

but a few months in most of the time theyd be about at the same stage

i had 2 sets of natural dreads the 1st time i didn't separate at all and had 3 crazy big ones ..i cut them i know that heartbreak..i cut em after a year

this time i separated for the 1st bunch of years then stopped and let them  congo

i don't think they will try to be the same sections but its possible ifso just separate em carefully into smaller sections

but 1st set i had 3 huuuuge ones and a few smaller

2nd set started with about 75-79

at 18 years in had around 200 so let them congo at will

i have no idea what i got now but I'm guessing 30-60  decent sized ones and a dozen or 2 babies and  a dozen or so rather thin ones still
