Just wanted to hello to everyone, Newbie here New to this whole dread process/Journey as well. This photo is a pic of my Locs in their current state. They are doing some pretty crazy things and def have a mind of their own.
I started with the backcombing method underneath part of my hair...then t n r for the remainder, All of the backcombed ones fell out, so I took them out completely and redid them with The T n R method.
I wash my hair every other day with clarifying shampoo...no wax or other products. However I have TONS AND TONS OF frizzies and loose hairs...so I used a needs and thread for 2 hours the other night and only got 1 side of my head done sewing in all those strays...needless to say, its back to the same way it was.
Is there a solution for this...and My dreads all matting together?? Everyone says rip them apart!! But it seems soooo harsh, I mean some of mine really have a lot of hairs matted together near the root.
Any help would be great advice taken here!!
Oh and Im a 34 year old small Business owner of "The Lil' Green Shak Bohemian Boutique" in Surfside Beach SC. Been married for 15 years to my soul mate we have a house full of amazing children!! I've always wanted locs and never did it....Im not getting any younger, its time to do the things I want to do and not worry about what image society "Thinks" i should hold. Thank you all and Great to be here he he h. Peace love and all that good ju ju vibez.
