Of 50 Strands Of Dread

You know that song by the Morgan Heritage family…. You can play it below as you scroll through my media update….

This is not a dreadlocks thing
Divine conception of the heart, well

Great track I won’t even tell you how many people show off their closely shaven heads telling me how, “they Rasta at heart…” In my head, I keep wanting to point out the converse logic that simply because I have locs doesn’t mean I am Rasta... at least not a cultural level, but hey one love…

Fifty strands of dread… I am not my hair but it makes statements without me saying a word.

  1. Love the pink towel flamboyant pic, brother such a lovely head of hear. Makes me mourn the loss of my long locks that I haven’t had in 11 years because my hair grows up as opposed to down lol

    1. You will have to wait in a very long line for that pleasure… You can’t imagine the number of people who have made that request that sometimes I fear. Someone will come cut my hair while I am sleeping ever since I heard cases of how there’s cases of deadlocked people being kidnapped and their hair cut 😐 I mean if they can steal the president’s iPad 🤣🤣 that was an unfunny joke if it was an attempt of dong a Jessica we are live recreation…

      Long story short I think might have like a hair auction and highest bidder gets the honour of getting my hair after I cut it🤣🤣..

    1. Everybody wants to start at the flex stage 🤣🤣🤣.
      I know people who started secretly while keeping their locs hidden in a protective style till they had gotten a desirable length then boom… What seemed like simple box braids were intertwined with locs hidden in the depth

  2. Uncle B!!!! I want long hair like yours. Please tell me how to start. I have an Afro and my hair is about 4 inches I think and the one thing I’ve always wanted is to have dreadlocks 🤔 Not only has your post inspired me to ask but I know you’ll help me with some early tips even though your hair is so long you probably don’t even know what short hair feels like 🤣🤣🤣

    1. ….its been a long loooong road 🤣🤣
      You are right I can’t even imagine life with short hair anymore 😁
      Like with all things the first bit is the hardest because for the first part your locs go through a bit of an awkward phase where it just looks like wannabe wriggly things (a lot of people usually end their loc journey during that part) depending how fast your hair grows that can last a long while or ‘relatively’ short time.
      And of course a healthy scalp means healthy hair so moisturise moisturise moisturise (most hair care techniques revolve around this)

      For starters you can get a simple beeswax twist, which can be washed out and combed without too much stress, than trying for the more permanent set dreadlocs…

      Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk …. You can also check out this post from the archives which might answer other questions you didn’t ask

      1. Thanks for the info. I will read more about it and put out a proper plan. I’m pretty motivated to go for it. My hair never used to grow in the past but over this past year something happened and it’s growth is pretty much a surprise saka that’s my chance to join the locs culture

      2. Hmmm it that with lockdown and such you haven’t been to the barber and you haven’t been combing out your hair regularly causing combing results on breakage…

      3. Yeah I need help with that. You are right I haven’t cut my hair in over two years now – I comb it once in a while. I started combing it out a month ago and there was a lot of breakage but ever since I started washing it and moisturizing the breakage is considerably less. I haven’t combed it in a while though – what’s your take, should I stop combing it completely?

      4. Unless you have a specific reason for combing I would say stop doing it🤣🤣 I mean you are aiming for locs not a freaky hair Friday Afro
