Dreadlocks Co.: Anyone thought of becoming a dreadloctician fulltime? I found some awesome courses on getting certified at http://divinedreadlocks.com/ Mar 13, 2017 2:48:35 GMT
littl3birdy: Hey , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps. :) Feb 23, 2017 21:07:21 GMT
luv13ug: Hey all! Feb 21, 2017 17:41:15 GMT

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha. Feb 9, 2017 8:24:57 GMT
V: Scrolling back I see it isn't used that much.. :p Feb 8, 2017 19:15:38 GMT
