you call yourselves a dread appreciation community, yet you make careless mistakes...RASTAFARIANS?! it's rastafari - and not all rastas live in jamaica and smoke pot. my good friend from barbados can prove that.
oh, and you should never put beeswax in your dreads...it crumbles and breaks the hair...olive oil or jojoba oil is preferred/recommended
i joined this community and i see there are a lot of white folks in this. good for ya'll. i love the hippie look on ya. quick question those. can we really give each other tips since our hair dreads in different ways?
i probably sound racist. but i'm just curious.
SO this is the second time i've posted in here . I've been working on some hot knotties since may. And I absolutely love what i have so far.
But here's my prob. I've got the roots and the hair near my scalp to dread.. but I've got long straight thick hair, and my ends are like refusing to dread properly. I backcomb a lot and i use wax about once a week. Sometimes i start to get these huge loops of hair that kind of hang out in midst of my dread. I don't want to cut them.. so i end up taking the bottom of my dreads out and redoing them. How can i prevent getting these obnoxious pulls and loops of hair so they can form with the rest of the dread, and not look so terrible! Gah.. so
ive had dreads in my hair for about 4 or 5 months now..theyre coming along very nicely...except for the back, the bottom will not dread, but i figure, it takes time, and my hair is stil kind of short..but does anyone know WHY the back of my hair wont dread out as easily, they keep on falling apart and also, my hair smells, like the scalp reeks of head juice, i have that gunky stuff under my nail everytime i scratch, but how to a get my dreads to smell like a bouquet of flowers? what should i use/get?
ill try my best to post pictures when i get a hold of a digi cam
i see many of you with cool bandanas" or head wraps i was just wonderingwhat i could use to have one also, something i could find around the house like a shirt or sometnhing- maybe this is a question of common sense but im a litle puzzled. also how do i get it to stay and look nice with my dreaddies?
Hey again everyone, just another quick question for you all.
I've currently had my dreads for about 3 and a half months now and they are starting to mature and lock up great. My question is this though
To wax or not to wax - what are the benefits of both?
I'm trying to decide weather to continue waxing them or to just let them do their own thing now. I originally used wax to hold them together but since they are locked up enough to hold themselves together, i don't think there is really any need for the wax.
Any comments and/or suggestions will be appreciated
