I tried this and it wont budge :(

only as a last resort

instead take 1 hand grab both roots pres hard against your head so they cant pull

with other hand loop a fui=inger under that lil bridge and pl]pull up

it will come loose with effort but will hurt if u dont hold the roots tight to the scalp to prevent pulling

Dread Maintenance

I have this massive gnarly congo and another congo right beside each other and they have this little bit of hair that connecting them at the root, you can see it in the picture. Its impossible to rip or pull the hair out of the massive congo, so I was wondering if it would be okay to cut the bridge of hair with scissors or any other ideas?

About a foot of loose ends


Dread Maintenance

I know its normal to have loose ends but all of mine are about a foot loose, my first set I only had a few inches loose. I have been going swimming a lot in the past few days and thats when i noticed how undone they were. Should I re twist n' rip them because I feel like my entire dread is coming undone?

Dread Products

I do want to use it to smooth out some of frizzies since I have a modeling audition coming up!

you should stick to pure 100% aloe vera organic if you can get a plant, or find one..but i didnt say do it...if youve got one cut off a leaf and roll out/squeeze the aloe out and apply to an itchy spot...or, if you have to be formal for a wedding or something you can apply it to frizz.

Better Introduce myself!


Introduce Yourself

Yeah I am guilty of taking mine out and then missing them everyday for around a year until I decided to do another set! Now they are here to stay :)

Twist n Rip is the best method to "jump start" your dreads. Then just let time do the rest!

Been too lazy on ripping the roots and now unwanted congos starting?


Dread Maintenance

I've had my dreads for almost 3 months now and I haven't been ripping them at all pretty much, mostly because I don't like hearing my hair ripping apart and I know I'm just damaging my hair so much. If I ever have to take my dreads out for some reason I would like my hair to still be in a decent condition :/ A few of the congos that I have I don't mind because the dreads are rather thin. But the majority of my dreads are starting to congo with one another... A lot of them are almost to the point where they are too solid to rip apart so is there any way I can kinda loosen them up at the root and carefully rip them apart?
