Seven months into twist and rip/back comb and my hair looks like a mop head and not at all like dreads..


Dread Maintenance

That's about how my hair looked at seven months... just sayin'. :P

Check out my timeline, we have similar progress about that time. The washing and tams and stuff may help speed it up a little bit, but ultimately I truly just think it's a matter of everyone's hair dreads differently, at different speeds. Don't let it discourage you. Once you have some killer progress you will be so proud of it because of the patience you had and the amazing way it all forms that it won't even matter how long it took.

my turn to twist up


Introduce Yourself

I don't think your hair receding around your temples would look bad with dreads, for the most part the other dreads may cover it. Or even if the hair is thinner there it might stay loose and sort of flow in with the rest. A lot of dreads have the "baby hair" around the face, but I think it looks nice. :D

I think your hair would do great if you went neglect method. You said you were doing the "twist" method? Did you mean Twist and Rip?

Losing hair


General Talk

I had the same happen to me when I started dreading. What happened was as my hair would knot up, the hair that I normally would shed would get trapped in the knots all over my head. When I showered, the knots would loosen again and I had hair come out in hand-fulls. I think since you're in the "just starting to show signs of dreading" stage, your hair is tightening and coming loose over and over until the hair finds its place and begins to dread. The hair you would normally lose over time is coming out all at once when your knots get loose after showering. That's what I think, at least.

I wouldn't worry! Just keep doing what you're doing. It sounds to me like you have some awesome progress poking just around the corner. :D

drying very long dreads


General Talk

I've always wondered about how you get your dreads dry SE. :D That's a smart technique, maybe one day I'll have awesome long dreads and use this!

dreadheadhq avoid at all cost!


Introduce Yourself

What makes me sad is that people who actually want dreads and start researching "How to get" dreads online end up stumbling across places like DreadHQ, and then they truly believe that you HAVE to do all of these things to grow your dreads. I've had quite a few people compliment my dreads at work and say they used to want dreadlocks. When I asked what stopped them, they would often say because they were TOO MUCH WORK. I mean... wow. And when I told them I do nothing but wash mine, they look at me like I'm crazy lol.

Also, It wouldn't be as offensive if the money DreadHQ was STEALING from people went to something useful, like a charity.

desperate sitiation


General Talk

I hate that I can't afford to help you SE, we almost lost our apartment several times over the past couple months. Things just hadn't gotten back on track since my husband and I lost our jobs. Without our tax return we literally would have been on the streets. So I understand what you're going through with struggling with the bills. It breaks my heart that you're sacrificing so much for this site though. I hope people who truly can afford it on here can see what a great thing you're doing and help if they can, too.

My take on dreadlocksite and SE: in response to SE's enthusiastic praise for natural dreads via a reply


dreadlockssite appreciation

Wow, this post is so inspiring! I'd like to take this moment to thank SE also, for saving my dreads. If not for this site, I would have also fallen victim to the "dread-kits" people on youtube and google swear by. I symbolize my dread journey with letting go, and if not for learning to let go both in and out of context over the past year, I would have probably been lost.

Love you, SE! <3
