section sizes


General Questions

I fully understand that one inch is the magic dread size number, not to over 2 inches ever, and that 1cm or less is at risk of breaking off. A lot of my sections are really skinny horizontally (under 1cm) and really long vertically (1in or 1.5in+). The sections don't seem to have too much hair in them but was wondering if they should be smaller than an inch still?

crazy roots at the nape of my neck


General Questions

I've started to form some nice baby dreads at the nape of my neck and I have to seperate them often. Since I've started seperating, I have a huge mess of hair at the roots. I feel like this is normal and to be expected, but still nervous about it. Should it be seperated closer to the scalp?

how beneficial is seasalt spray for forming dreads?


General Questions

I've restarted natural dreads about 3 weeks ago. Things are knotting up fairly quick. I was wondering if a sea salt spray is advised for such young dreads and if it really makes a difference?

separation


General Questions

Yes I watched your videos, which are very helpful. Its just hard for me to get an understanding when my hair is still so loose. But knowing that I should go root to tip is so helpful

General Questions

Does the sound of breaking hair make you shudder? I haven't had to do anything like that yet. seems like it would make me feel like nails on a chalk board haha

separation


General Questions

with research, I have found mixed answers with separating locks. Some desperate from rot to tip and others tip to root. I know that the dread doesnt need to be separated all the way to the scalp.

5 days of unbrushed hair

Updated 1/7 Dreadlock journey 1 week, 4days!


Member Journals and Timelines

First day of my dreadlockjourney. Brushed my hair for the last time last night and washed my hair with baking soda this morning. I'm going to try to do the all natural/neglect method and i may fall to do some tnr. WISH ME LUCK :)

Before my journeyIt is now the end of the 3rd day. My waves are much more defined and sectioning themselves a little bit. I decided not to tnr though i did do one section of tnr at the nape of my neck so i could have a formed dread to remind me what my goal is. So yes SE i swear not to tnr!

Day 3

1 WEEK!!!

I cant believe its already been a week. I have 5 or 6 dreads at the nape of my neck that are knotting up very nicely and already looping a little bit and one has a clump on the end. my single tnr dread is looping up by the root. My hair is basically all sectioned and alot more wavy. I have little sections of dreading happening all over my head. I had no idea changes would be so quick!

Before showering

I don't know how to rotate pictures on here, sorry

After shower

So much progress!! 1 week and 4 days. Im having alloy of fun with beads now. Theyre really helping to knot things up. Sorry, for the photo dump!
