Mr. Monday: Jonathan Craig
I wash my hair every week to once every two months depending on my laziness and how dirty my locks are. On average it’s around once every three weeks. I use a latch hook to interlock my new growth about once a month. I do not support paying salons top dollar for a hair style. Learn it yourself and save money. I also use a crochet hook to take in stray hairs and to seal the ends of my locks. (They tend to come undone sometimes.) I only use two products: an anti-dandruff or olive oil shampoo and Sulfur 8 Medicated Anti-Dandruff Conditioner.
In Toronto you don’t see many natural dreads as often as you see styled (bathroom) locks. Lots of kids rock Afros and cornrows, though.
Since being a dread I’ve learned that my hair grows much faster when it’s locked. The interlocking pulls on your roots more like a braid up would. I find this speeds up the growth process a bit. I also learned that my hair’s true color is a lot lighter than it seems. Since being a dread my hair color has faded from being exposed to the sun. It’s a cool effect.
If I could have done one thing differently, I would have interlocked right from the start and also filmed/photographed my whole journey from day one. It wasn’t until two years in that I began blogging about my hair.
Mobb Media is my media company. MOBB stands for Manifest Opportunity Beyond Belief. In other words, creating a lifestyle that is suited for your soul. Every opportunity in life that you encounter is a chance to become who you are destined to be. My goal with Mobb Media is to help show people how to manifest their desires through spiritual advancement, meditation, and dedication.
Patience is the most important ingredient in growing natural hairstyles. Nature takes longer to do things, so you must remember not to rush anything or get impatient as it’ll just hinder the process. Don’t play and toy with your developing natural hair either. Let it do its own thing, and let only the elements of the earth interfere.
