Can I colour my hair


General Questions

I really like how look grey/white hair. And agree that is way better if you are dreading, to preserve your own colour... I think maybe even if you rinse super well, some of the product would get stuck in the dread and would not be good at last for the health of the hair.

Starting my natural journey, questions!


Dreading Methods

Well, I have almost 5 weeks. I am just now kinda aware of it, because now I am a practicant and soon I need to look for a real job, hope not to have problems with that, but just making that appart, I don't see any other issue with the process.I also use around 37.5 ml shampoo and 450 of water in a bottle and Because it has a small hole, I kinda can squish is near my scalp and rub it, because I noticed if I kinda put it first and then wait to rub, it doesn't make good foam (the water in my country is soft anyways)... also maybe if is one of those ketchup bottles with the tip, would be easier the application, so you don't mess with the rest of the hair.Also I just use a clip pin exclusively to hold my bangs (I used to have them short and they are growing now). Also use sometimes a loose "scarf" as a headband just when I feel my hair looks kinda "messy" and just to look "presentable" during my practices, after that time, I remove it and let my hair run free.I don't feel it would be a good idea to tie my hair now in this early stage, the more free it is, the better.Also I wash it every third day... and I just use the sea salt water twice per week just for one hour max.I think I haven't done anything else than that. I would like to try that liquid dread soap shampoo too, but I need to save for that, since the shipping for me would be kinda expensive, so maybe if I buy like 2 or 3 bottles, is not gonna be that bad.Enjoy the ride... I think mine is gonna last ages, but the way I've gone so far, has been good, I guess. ;)

Introduce Yourself

Yeah, you should document your progress too! Would be nice to see it around here! ;)

What about your workplace? still you haven't had any "problem"?

Introduce Yourself

Actually, this days I've been thinking/experienced some sort of things now. Is like... I have 3 weeks without brushing my hair and suddenly on the street I'm aware of people who's hair look messier than mine despite my "efforts" to dread. Then I see myself watching online videos of freeform timelines and comparing my progress. And then I understand that it's not point of comparison and that is not the thing to do, but to be aware of my own thing. And then I know that I don't have to rush anything and that patience and stuff is gonna be hard to learn, but at same time this things are what make the journey so interesting. So I kinda understand you, when you've been wondering about your own pace and even imagining yourself with mature dreads.I am even considering in starting to collect some dread beads and I don't even have any dread yet. :p

Introduce Yourself

I am on almost my third week and my hair is ridiculously straight. Now I look like nothing had happened but some sectioning.I've read also lot of people recommend that dreadshampoo, I would like to buy some in the future, but also need to save some money for that, hehe.I guess my journey is gonna be pretty slow, but hey, is a good patience tester. I bet just fr the natural method and nothing else. I used to have crocheted dreads but they turned out really badly (And I just got the crocheted once). So I guess is healthier to let the hair dread at its own pace.Just enjoy the ride, for sure you're gonna end with really cool locs. ;)

Reducing the assault on my body


General Talk

I tried once coconut oil to clean my face but started to clog my pores, so I bought some weleda cleanser that I actually use just one drop of it to wash my face and it has lasted me already quite long time. I also use that to remove makeup, but just for the eyes I use coconut oil. With that I no longer suffer from dry skin. I also use some weleda cream as moisturizer, just one tiny drop and also it last me ages. Somehow I don't dare to use acv on my face, how is it?

Off topic rant. Need to vent...I swear I got the heart of Buddah and Dracula combined...


General Talk

Wow, this was... I have no words.As everyone has said,I hope you looked for a shelter for the dog or even in some cases, in the country side there are farmers who usually need the protection of that kibd of dogs and always take them, and they for sure have a better life there in comparison of being in smaller places.I hope everything went well. And I know sometimes life it's hard, but try to be strong and don't let them get you. To me is kinda sad to see how people and situations make people turn cold or empty, so don't let that happen, don't let anyone or anything shut you down. Be yourself and always do the right thing and you're always will be ok.

the spirituality of dreading (regardless of religion or lack of)


History and Religious Significance

I loved this post!

Now I understand what to grow dreads really means and by now I learned and it has at least a deep meaning for me this time.

Thanks, Soaring Eagle for writing this. :)

Crotcheting damages hair


crochet and dread tools recovery

Well, actually you are probably right. With time, crocheted dreads shrink a lot! So probably you would have ended with one heavy dread.

I also had crocheted dreads. I got them done 2 years ago and combed them out after 6 months and a half and I just crocheted once. Now I am starting freeform dreads and also kinda aware of job seeking, but anyways, my hair is gonna take loooong time to dread, so probably it won't be "an issue" once I got into a place. :P

I have still my timeline on my page, if you are curious to see how they ended.
