Introduce Yourself

Some of them I'm unsure of the root area because they're kinda all linked together and I can't find the ends. But the dreads themselves don't seem too fat so I'm assuming they'll be fine. I've brushed some out and tnr them again and I hav around 40 dreads now, hopefully that will be fine now :)

Totally normal. The thing I've learned so far is the best thing for dreads is time. They will all work themselves out and dread up. You're only a few weeks in so you have a long ways to go. I'm almost at 2 months and the ones that fell almost completely out are looping up beautifully! Just keep on being patient :)

Yeah that does sound like a better plan as they're not all really fat. I'll do that thankyou for your help :)

Anna said:

instead of taking them all out, just comb out the really fat ones and split them into 2 or 3 dreads. :)

too hard to see guesstimate the root areas size

Hey, I'm a newbie. My dreads range from around 2-5 weeks old as I didnt do it all at once. I basically used youtube tutorials to do the twist and rip method such as galapril's tutorial. I thought I was using the size sized sections of hair as her but I've only came out with 19 dreads. (I haven't dreaded my fringe/bangs and there is a section which could potentially be 2-3 dreads but I have a blue hair extension thing glued in at that part and that reeeally doesnt wanna dread up. Basically I'm just worried that I don't have enough dreads or as they mature theyre gunna become dangerously fat or whatever. Do you think they look normal for baby dreads or should I take them out and redo them? (sorry the quality isnt the best)

super clean dreads (safe for baby locks too)


Dread Maintenance

Can I just ask what exactly is a cup? I think this is an american measurement that I am not familiar with. Could you tell me what this means in terms of grams or ounces of baking soda? Thanks.
