when you have dreads, you get to wear tams! it's a whole new world of hats!

and i think dreaducation is a fine idea. we could also put to rest the misconception that dreads smell bad. they smell like hair. sometimes i used to put essential oils in mine for fun. a drop of egyptian musk was like walking in a cloud of heaven.

OK, any of you have problems with hats? I love hats and wear them all the time. Wouldn't having dreadlocks affect how the hat looks/fits?

never had a problem with hats. i wore them all the time. the only hitch you may encounter is that some hats will fit more snuggly than they used to, and may subsequently squish up your dreads the just slightest bit, depending on how dense your dreads are. but seriously, i always rocked a newsboy cord cap, or a variety of toques in the winter. i also wore a lotta head scarfs.

the wallaby :
You can wear any hat with dreads. The only thing I've noticed is that I've gone up a hat size. Tams are awesome too.

razberryjam :
Yeah I usually make a spritz with water and essential oils. Mostly tea tree and peppermint. Yumm Yumm. Dreads definately don't stink... Unless the dreadlocked person gets a mold problem. But that can be corrected with a cider vinegar rinse. Damn people really need to get in the know.
Dreadeduction is a great idea.
I think I may just make some flyers and everytime someone asks me a question or looks at me weird I'll just give them a flyer.
I mean yesterday at the grocery store the cashier kept looking at me and then she asked "Does your hair still grow". Gosh!  Cheesy

HI.
So, I had dredlocks in the past but I had to take them out because they all started to dread together at my scalp into one big mess. I think this is because i put them up in a ponytail too much.
Well, I missed them a lot and TOMORROW I'm going to get them done at this ethnic salon. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas about how i could save my new ones from having the same fate. (other than not pulling them back)
thanks!

well, I just rip them apart at the scalp when I notice that the're tangling together, it might just hurt a little...

and when you have loose hair, make sure that you dread them back in the right dread...

that's all I can come up with now!

Ok I finally got some pics of my dreads, they're not very good, but oh well...
 I've got them for about two years now, so they're getting along quite nice :-)

Wow they are very pretty!

jellybones:
Like everyone else said... just rip them apart and try to sew the loose hairs back in the right dread.
Beads help too. If you notice one of your dreads trying to congo all the time just slip a bead close enough to the root and that will solve the problem.

I am starting dreads. i have very thick curly coarse hair. i tried a lock gel but it was to flaky. so i 2 strand twisted my hair and have washed it once since. everyone says it will eventually lock but be loose on the ends. anyone know a nother way to start them. i can always unravel my twist and start over..
