DREADHEADHQ TEST STARTING FROM SCRATCH, FULL PRODUCT EVALUATION!!!!

Hello, to introduce myself, my name is Jeremy, but everyone who knows me calls me Utah (long story,ill explain later). I've been rocking the long wild hair for a LONG time,and have always thought about possibly doing dreads, as my hair knots up naturally if i leave it alone for more than an afternoon, and have finally decided to gothrough with it! I am very excited, and ver interested. One thing you should know about me is I'm very investigative by nature, mostly because I'm a gearhead and I ABSOLUTELY HATE wasting my money/time getting the wrong thing now and the right thing later.

but as soon asI esearched dread kits I saw the knotty boy kits, researched reviews, and found the Dreadhead HQ product to come consistently highly recommended, and then Ilooked at their EXTENSIVE kits and process used to attain dreadlocks.... sounds pretty convincing.... thenI found the forums, and was BLOWN AWAY at how alot of the forum says it's all bullshit, and a scam... And then i realized theres an all out war between the use of product or exclusion of such use..

SO i had this really fun idea! I'M GOING TO PUT THEIR ENTIRE LINE OF PRODUCTS TO THE TEST!!! and hopefully this debate can be over... Now heres what I have come to believe as of yet asfar as dreads are concerned: 1. there are obviously alot of both wrong and right ways of making dreads 2. that SOME of these products DO work and 3.I'm walking out of ths experience with some dreads!

So I've ordered the Epic Dread Kit from Dreadhead HQ, and it comes with every dread product they offer with the exception of the hair growth multivitamins haha. I've also thouroughly read all the instructions and many of said instructions are very thorough and do say misuse/not-following-instructions can fuck up your dreads.

I luckily also have a professional hair dresser, who really wants to tryto learn this process as well, SHE IS A PRO AT A SALON, so there is no way incompetence/improper techniques can'tbe a factor. Were going to watch the full DVD, then go for it! Im actually feeling pretty god about their kit so far, just because a personal friend who had TwistnRip style dreads, and some BADASS ones at that, but he had used some of their stuff for 5 of the 8 years he grew his locks and said they were amazing, although a little pricey..

So we'll see how it goes,Ive posted the only decent pictureI have of my full hairthats on my PC (pardon our drunkness), I'll steal some off of Facebook later;and when i get my kit I'll continue this thread :D

(and if you have to ask, which someone already has, Im the one with hair XD

dreadheadhq fakes reviews

they censor the opinions of theuir customers

no dreadhead would ever recomend them

90% boycott them at all costs

read the reviews here..all 100% neghative those are real unsensored recviews

you will ruin your dreads if u use the kit

babafats went bald from the kit

it dissolved his hair!

you are going to make a massive massive mistake if youhy domnt send the klit back and avoid the salon

ytour hairs already dreading if u simply let it

theyre way 20 products 20 tools 20 techniques

why need a dvd?

they make ot harder to dread wax makes it mnever dread they make simulation dreads only

our way

1 step

stop combing

let ot dread

pure simple easy

ypur hairs knotting

dreads are knots

ut is dreading all u gotta do is let it

why do you need a kit for thart? why p[roducts? why a salon?

Hun, i'm trying to tell you this for your own good, please don't think that we're alljustgoing to jump down your throat and scream at you for what you want to do, but at the end of the day, sure you might come out of this experiment with dreads... but they are going to be very sick dreads, and not able to function properly withoutmaintenance.

One of the best things about dreads is they aremaintenancefree! Your hair will be sticky, and more prone to retaining water, which will build up as mildew and make your dreads stink. The stickyness will also attract more dirt and crap that you do not want in them, as well as making everything you touch your head to greasy. It doesnt sound like you need to use any product at all! Much like me, im only two weeks into my natural dreading process and they are doing fantastically with almost no help from me whatsoever.

The only thing that sometimes puts off people who want to dread about going for the natural/neglect method is that yes, you tend to look like a crazy cat lady (or homeless dude) for a while. But honestly you learn to love them and everything they do on their own accord! It sounds silly to think of your hair having its own idea of what to do but it really knows best.

Besides, youre a cutie and you dont wanna fuck that up by destroying your hair in the long run. Girls dont fuck guys with greasy dreads that reek :P

Please research a little more around this forum, talk to some guys on the chat about their own experiences, you wont find anyone here that will give you any positive memories! And honestly, what are we going to gain by stopping you from spending your money and ruining your beautiful hair? Nothing. We just care about the integrity of dreadlocks :)

The problems that wax causes are not opinion. Those are facts. I really hope you rethink your decision and go without for the sake of your dreads.

also, back upcraftydangleshere, i also have dead straight, thick coarse hair. so dont buy into the fact that you have straight hair (or fine even, it just takes a bit longer if your hair is fine) you NEED to use product because it will never dread like african hair. it WILL. you jusy have to trust it and give it time. I used the backcomb method once, and admittedly after doing a couple very tight, the rest were done pretty loosely, because my arms started hurting and i got sick of sitting there for 3 hours lol. Lots of people on here choose TnR or backcomb, which helps section and direct the hair where you want it to go, but they arent dreads, think of it like a blueprint and then just sit back and enjoy the ride! :)

my kit was going camping 2 weeks

my products were 3 beads and a mountain stereem to bathe in

my method was not having a comb or mirror

and ..they dreaded perfectly without hi]=undreds of dollars wasted without hundreds ofg]f hours of eff=ort

dread kit dreads look like dreads but they never really dread

knots form from hair moving

wax prevents hair from moving

the knots u get froim backcombing on daty 1 are the only kniots u ever get!

after that u just compress those knots in wax making candles

they look more mature but never get morwe mature

they cant move

they get stiff

they get heavy

u carry around years woirth of dirt thats trapped in wax and never comes out

its disgussting

they start to rot from the ci=ore

please dont fall for the scam

look are we trying to rip you off for hundreds of dollars?

no we are trying to help ypu free

dont waste your money get it back

your hairs trying to dread already all u gotta do is let it

your kit is your intention

intend to dread and u dread

thats all u need

love that picture SE, it should be a pop-up warning sign for EVERY website that tries to sell you products to help you dread!! XD

Also, just because someone is a professional hairdresser, does NOT mean they know what theyre doing. My best friend is a professional hairdresser and she had NO clue as to how to dread, and also, SE, who on here is a professional hairdresser? Is is Panda? Or Electric Mama? I cant remember :( but we have one on here and she can tell you how bad professional dread jobs are!
