How to comb out dreads WITHOUT (too much) cutting.

it can be done.



You’ve probably heard by now that my little sister, applesandmustard is combing out her locs. I know. I’m still in mourning. But I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the process of combing out locs so I thought I would share her informative video.

ps. So I’ve already gotten 4 panicked inbox messages in response to this video. I’m not coming out my locs. Calm down! lol

Hunh, when I combed mine out I used leave in conditioner instead of water & just combed started from the ends. Admittedly even though mine were 4 years old my hair never did loc properly.

Anonymous asked: I am a white woman and I am planning on getting dreads and I have been told by a few people that they think it is racist of me to do so (mostly by white people). I didn’t think of dreads as strictly an African-centric hairstyle, as I was going for more of a Viking look. Is it racist for white people to get dreads, or is it racist to think that dreads are automatically a black hairstyle?

yoisthisracist: Yo, I can’t even deal with how many layers of wackness this question gets into, without even getting near any of the racism parts.

seriously, it’s like “I wanna do this thing & a bunch of people tell me it’s racist but I think it’s not really racist because I don’t think it is, so I’m gonna ask you now so hopefully you can tell me what I wanna hear.”

Gorgeous stuff, reasonable prices…why did you show this to me? I have a while year to build a summer wardrobe. This is a bad bad thing you have done to my wallet. Bad.

And if you don’t know her for more than her locs, you should.

It is so weird to see someone you know like this, because there really is much more to her than her hair.
