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
