Amount of dreadies falling

So with a post i posted the other day about Andy cutting off his dreads there was some confusion it might have been me... IT WASNT

It was just me showing you his locks after he had cut them off.

He is the 5th friend i know who has cut off his dreads.

Sad times, anyway this was just an update on the fact it wasnt me who cut off my dreads, just some of my friends. And here they are... 1 friend i cant find pics of them with dreads as it was a long time ago, but these are the recent fallers RIP DREADIES :(

Mythbuster: Dreads are dirty

So one of the reasons why people are put off dreads are due to the fact they think dreads are dirty.

The reality..... Dreads are cleaner than real hair if washed regulary. YES YOU WASH DREADS!!!

Basically there is special dread shampoo which leave no residue in the hair. Residue is in most if not all usual shampoo and conditioner, its the part of the shampoo/conditioner which stays behind coating your hair which then makes it feel smooth and shiny. The hair then tries to get rid of this coating by releasing grease from the scalp to try and clean the hair naturally, hence why if you use normal shampoo and after not washing your hair for a few days your  hair will be greasy its due to your hair trying to clean all the shit you ahve put all over it.

The difference for dreads is that you dont want your hair to be smooth and slipperly because they knotts wont stay in to get over this issue residue free soap was created. This leaves nothing on your hair at all when it washes out this means that your hair is clean and free from anything. Due to this your hair doesnt get greasy because it isnt trying to get rid of the residues which you would usually coat hair with. Due to this people with dreadlocks do wash their hair with residue free shampoo, however nowhere near as much as normal people would. Infact i wash my hair about once every two weeks, because they dont get greasy and i only really wash my hair if my scalp starts to get itchy.

To read up more on the issue here is a link to DreadheadHQ one of the best suppliers of dread products out there.

So moral of the post.... DREADS ARE CLEANER THAN NORMAL HAIR!!!!

My Dreads

So i guess at first i need to somehow prove myself and why i have my own blog telling people tips and tricks on dreads and maybe just information other people dont know on them, like things people beleive and arent true.

So anyway to me, im 21 ive had my dreads from the 31st january 2007 so they are coming around to being 4 soon :P and yes they have birthdays!!!

Thats me, and my dreads sorry about the poor quality of the photo!

This was about 2 years ago and i think on close inspection my dreads have wool around them to help them out and it makes them really personalised.

Here is me on the same day as the above picture but a better quality and bigger picture, as you can see if you look really closely the wool are only on certain parts of the dreads to try and pull them in.
And im doing poi XD.

so lets storyline it a bit more to show progression

At the beginning:

Dreads being done.

And dreads finished.

Below is probably the most recent picture of my dreads. They are past my shoulders easily now, just about nipple length.


And thats all for now. Hopefully you can come back soon :)

first day

lets get this shit going XD
