    Dreadlock tips...

    Discussion started by NoEZ - Oct 15, 2003

    I'm getting my hair dreaded in about a week. I wanted to ask the people on here who have dreads what are some tips for keeping them in nice condition. I know of some tricks but I want ot see what some of you have done to keep them in good condition. Post pictures of your dreads if you want...I'll probably post mine when I get em done.

    grow your hair out really long, throw your comb away and dont wash your hair for a month...then hop in the back of a pick up truck through a couple of states. Walla

    alot of people get dreds out of fashion or something trivial, but the rastafarians find them as a source of power and the longer they get the wiser and more respect is given in rastafarian culture.

    Alot of my sisters friends had them and now claim that they cause baldness (clumps of hair falling out). Plus they're kinda gay

    Yeah, my brother has had dreadlocks going on 4 years or so, and he's got a bunch of bald clumps. Could be down to the severe lack of washing......

    Ok let me reply to most of you here.

    seeking:
    I'm not going to a salon...im getting it done naturally and cheap. And I think your the dick cheese by thinking you know about my lifestyle. Reggae music and pot smoking has nothing to do with my decision. I've thought about getting dreadlocks for years and years. Way before I even knew what pot was. And how do you know I'm white. So keep your ignorant comments to your self.

    effyoo:
    Residue free shampoo is what I would use. I know about cleaning them. But thanks.

    Dr. Dazzle:
    I'm gonna get em. I've thought about it long and hard for years. And I've made my decision.

    truth be told man, i had em for 10 years. dope ones too. not all jacked up, shitty, hippy dreads, but also not done at a salon. i took care of my shit and steady got compliments on how they didnt smell, and proper.
    then one day i cut them off, completely on a whim, and ever since then ive wondered why the fuck i didnt do it sooner.

    the difference between you and i though, is i wasnt some little snot nosed retard who wanted to be down with the latest fashion shit, so i booked an apointment, to spend 200 bucks on getting my hair fucking dreaded. jesus. the only thing that makes me sicker than hippies with dreds, are white kids with mall dreads
    do the whole world a favor, and if you honestly think its 'cool' for you to have them, just shoot yourserlf.
    do it for bob, he'd want it that way.

    i wrote that before reading your reply.
    but i still stand behind everything i said.
    if you think im so 'wrong' in my assumptions, prove me wrong. give me any indication that you arent just dickriding on a 'fashion' that isnt actually a fashion at all, but a way of life...one you know nothing about.

    There you go again seeking...acting liek you know why I'm getting dreadlocks. Hoow is it I want to be down with the latest fashion when I thought about getting dreads before it even became the "in" thing to do. And you don't know what Bob would want. So why don't you do the world a favor and shut up.
