painter14 asked:

I love ur dreads! I'm thinking about starting the dread journey this summer. how did you start? do you have any tips/advice?

Hey! Thank you! I started my dreads with a mix of the back combing and twist/rip methods. There are other methods to choose from as well. I think you should research all of the methods and choose which one is best for you.

Some tips/advice:
🔹Stop conditioning your hair a few weeks prior to dreading your hair and start washing only every few days. You want to get your scalp used to being washed less frequently. Your scalp produces a lot of oil to make up for stripping it out with shampoo all the time. Washing less frequently will let your scalp balance out.

🔹Section your hair. This will *help* prevent your dreads from eating each other at the roots. They will still get tangled together a lot in the beginning, but sectioning makes it so much easier to separate them. Sectioning also gives you dreads a more uniform size.

🔹Pick a few friends/family members to help you start your journey. Dreading hair takes a lot of time so having a few people to help definitely makes it go by faster. I can’t emphasize enough how important this is. It’s not fun to have to do your entire head by yourself. You can do it that way, but having other people to help do the back of your head is ideal.

🔹Be patient! Dreads do their own thing and never turn out how you expect. Give them time. Some days are awesome and other days are frustrating. The more they mature, the better they will look.

Good luck on your journey! I would love to hear about what you do and see when you put them in! 😄

"As human beings, not only do we seek resolution, but we also feel that we deserve resolution. However, not only do we not deserve resolution, we suffer from resolution. We don’t deserve resolution; we deserve something better than that. We deserve our birthright, which is the middle way, an open state of mind that can relax with paradox and ambiguity."

"Never be ashamed,’ he said. ‘Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.’
‘How will I know which is which?’
‘By the taste. You can only know a good wine if you have first tasted a bad one."

"Psychedelic experience is only a glimpse of genuine mystical insight, but a glimpse which can be matured and deepened by the various ways of meditation in which drugs are no longer necessary or useful. If you get the message, hang up the phone. For psychedelic drugs are simply instruments, like microscopes, telescopes, and telephones. The biologist does not sit with eye permanently glued to the microscope, he goes away and works on what he has seen…"
