new dread help


Introduce Yourself

So i am just over a month into my dreads. I started with backcomb and some crotchet (yes have thrown away the hook) My question is that the dreads are doing well, it is just that a couple of them seem so weak at the undreaded root. Like it feels like the dread could easily rip right off. the dread itself does not seem overly thin but does not seem like there is enough hair to support it at the root. Should i try to congo two together, or is it just decieveing because the base is not dreaded up yet. hope that makes sense.

thanks in advacne

Washing question


Help! Save My Dreads

Thanks so much. I was thinking that about the loctition too! I am glad she did not do a great job though lol. I will keep up the washing. I just received some dr bronners lavender and pepeprmint soap. so am excited to give it a whirl. I just feel like i am getting off so easy not being all itchy and greasy. I used to be a once a day hair washer.

Washing question


Help! Save My Dreads

Hi there..I have read a lot about washing on here. I am about 3 weeks into dread journey. So i have been doing the baking soda, ACV rinse every 3-4 days. The thing is the first couple of weeks, I felt the NEED to wash at 3 days..hair/scalp was greasy and itchy etc. Now i feel like it doesnt need washed. It feels dry and soft. do i want that slight greasiness? Has my scalp adjusted already? ALso, I started my dreads with back-combing, and panicked beacuse i looked a mess and went to a "loctician" who crocheted them a little. I have not crothched since but there are one or two that are so loose at roots...more than the 3 inches. Should i give these a little backcomb? I can not believe they are not somewhat tangling up on their own. Last question: I have a dreadhawk, and want to add another row of dreads where the short/ shved hair meets the dreads if that makes sense. SO the shaved part will be smaller...and more dreads. Should i grow this hair out to 4-5 inches and backcomb, or just let it go. How do you section the dreads if you dont backcomb? thanks so much!!

id take the ones u got out but how longs yoir hair if u cant tye em back they wont bother u not being tyed back till long enough to tye back

u can attach them by combing out the ends to meet an inch or 2 mesh them together till the knotted parts meet and the loose parts overlap the knotted parts then wrap the joints like a cast to hold them on till the joints dread together

crochet and dread tools recovery

Hello all....I am a newbie to the site, and to dreads as well.4 nights ago I had a friend attemp to put dreads in my hair by backcoming. My hair looked like a big frizzy mess, as I think she may have done them a little to quickly (now with the info i have learned here, they probably looked exactly how they should) I panicked and drove two hours from home last night to a specialist who backcombed and crotcheted them. She did say she is very careful with crotcheting, as it can cause damage. I had human hair extension that she added by crotchet and sewing, to half my head then we ran out of time. So now a little to late I found this site. I have read enough to know i will not crotchet them any more. I am not sure if i need to start the conditioning and all or just let them go, but my question is about the remainder of the extensions. Should i just finish up with crotcheting them in, and then throw away the crochet hook, or is there a better way to add them.. I know the biggest response i willl get is dont put them in...but it is very silly looking with half long and half short. I am a runner and really want to be able to pull my hair back as well. Thanks so much in advance, and I LOVE this site! Cheers
