I'm from Finland and I turn 25 this June. I joined the old forums in 2013 just before my dreads were created. I mostly just lurked around there because of the bugginess (and because I'm super awkward socially and have major anxiety when writing to strangers).
I used to study furniture and building restoration but I kept having joint pains so I changed to graphic design. I like painting, doing all kinds of handcrafts and watching birds. I'm also saving money to get better equipment to photograph birdies.
Welcome tangerina, nice to have another Finnish member of the community! You've probably seen Ida around on the site if you've been lurking - looks like you both live in a very beautiful country from what I've seen.
If you have your art and/or photography online anywhere, feel free to share.
Hey, everyone. I'm here thanks to Lazydreads and his awesome videos.
I'm 34 and live in Westport, WA. I have a 4 year old girl and spend my days either working, creating, or studying. I'm currently working as a housekeeper and on-call sandwich maker/bar wench at a local pub here in Westport. I'm studying to become a programmer for financial and lazy reasons.
I am indifferent about chocolate as long as it ends up in my mouth.

CHESH-guest computer: anna conditioner helps but it is a lot of work no matter how you go about undoing them. Coconut oil helped when I had to redo mine

anna: We need help! My daughter has dreadlock or mostly matted hair type dreadlocks from not brushing her brush. Can anyone help us figure out how to take them out? We have been using baby powder to rub the hair around to loosen it up.

SketchyMagpie: I'd suggest reading our FAQ as dreads coming loose is very normal in the early stages.

SketchyMagpie: Hey Danny. Depending on your hair type, you might need a few more inches. I started from short hair with 2 sets of dreads and they didn't stay in until my hair was 5 inches long

@DreadlocksCo: You can get relatively instant dreads by crocheting them.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

rye: hi.. newbie on locks. I have 2 weeks locks but its not extension , just want to ask if it ok to do bath everyday and shampoo my dreads everyday
Apr 26, 2017 19:51:27 GMT
SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.
