my dreads have raised my vibes


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Neat. I feel like my short foray into my dread journey has really given me a lift also. I have actually had some people tell me, "You are looking very well." It is helping me strengthen my commitment to live a more nature-centric life.

so why is everyone so hateful?


General Talk

Yeah, I have seen this too. And I just totally don't agree with it at all. Let's just call it like it is... racism is racism in either direction. Can't we all just get along...

Naturally occurring dreadlocks a concept difficult to grasp


General Talk

Yes, super interesting. I think that more than just the looks, the actual idea of letting a process happen naturally on its own, without human intervention and scheming, is what super drew me in to the idea of neglect or freeform method of dreads. I am into minimalism also, and it is very much about what we don't do or don't have as much as it is about what we do or what we do have. And I think that our consumer culture has a very hard time understanding this.

misconceptions about dreads


General Talk

The most ridiculous one that I repeatedly heard growing up in school was that lots of spiders lived in them.

I don't miss not combing!


General Talk

I have always had tangly hair. I'm on day 8 since hiding my brush and comb, and let me tell you I do not miss them one single bit! I am also kind of shocked at how *great* (boy, I sound like quite the bragger here, but man, I am just genuinely shocked!) my hair looks after more than a week of not combing. Actually, I am a little disappointed to tell the truth because it looks like maybe I just went one day without combing it or something. It's like, dude... could you please tangle up a little faster!?

But on a serious note, I have felt really happy every single day of my dread journey so far. No regrets yet... and hopefully none to come! :D

Dread Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

Hm, well, not much to post as we are in the super beginning stages, but nevertheless I would like to have at least one commemorative photo of the first few days of lawless hair.

So without further ado, I present you with the first 5 days of freeform goodness.

Realizations and turning 30


Introduce Yourself

So about a month ago I turned 30. I have been thinking about embracing natural freeform dreads now for 3 years. Turning 30 gave me the extra push that I needed, to go ahead and do what I feel is right. After all, time is a wasting! So on Oct. 1st, I figured there was no better time than the present, and I hid all of my combs and brushes in drawers. I took a water bottle and some baking soda into the bathroom, and started substituting "no touch" baking soda rinses (with one drop of tea tree oil added for good measure) instead of conventional toxic shampoos. I am only a few days into my new routine, but I feel so liberated. My hair definitely doesn't look anything like dreads, but it looks a lot better than usual, and is kind of sexy bedhead, full of volume. I feel so right about this journey on so many different levels-- in how it helps the environment, how it fosters patience, and how I am following my heart.

I am so glad that this site is here for support too, I really enjoy the featured posts and photos, as I don't know any dreadies in real life... it really gives a lot of inspiration. Namaste.
