Three Weeks In


Introduce Yourself

Actually, soaring eagle, many people have thinness in the front of their hair. This is not necessarily from traction alopecia. It just stands out more in black people because our hair has more texture and is thicker so it makes the thinness look worse and more unnatural than it really is.

Organic Root Stimulator Lock & Twist Gel Horror.


Saved Dreads Success Stories

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it is not really a product for backcombing styles. It says locks, but refers to the way black people start locks - i.e. comb coils or one- or two-strand twists. The picture of black women on the cover should have been a clue that it is not for your hair type.I have been using this product on my locks for over a year (my first attempt was in October 2011, but I continued to use the product on my 3C/4A curls after I took them out after a month) with no problems. It is what I used to create my comb coils to start my locks and to maintain them when I palmroll (although it's more like a fingerroll since my locks are smallish).One thing, is you can't use them on back combing. It is not meant for that kind of style. Like any gel, it will get stuck and gloop up if you put too much or on hair which it sounds like you did. My hairdresser (yes, I went to a hairdresser because I am too impatient when it comes to parting my hair evenly) watered it down a little for the initial twists, but I use the pure product, one small pinch for each lock (my hair is about 36 cm long in general and 3C/4A http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types ) when I retwist.Don't knock a product that didn't work for you if you don't use it the way it's supposed to be used. This product is always highly recommended by hair stylists because it does work. Just not for all situations.

Twist dreads in black hair


Dreading Methods

I guess you could do rope twists (coil each strand then do a two-strand twist). Once the coils are set, you can untwist them. I don't have very thick hair (although it seems like everyone else in the world does) so I have to make the most of what I have. That's why I chose comb coils instead of twists. I have 3C/4A hair so they stay in pretty well with watered-down locking gel. It's been 8 weeks now and they are locking or at least separated well enough that I don't really need to cover them anymore when I wash my hair.

Dreading Methods

Could I help clean up the editing and typos in this? It was a very enlightening and educational read and I picked up quite a few tips, but the typos made it a little hard to go through.
