Lazy Dreads isn't all for no maintenance. He tells people that if they backcomb, if they crochet, if they do this and that, this and that may happen, so be careful, etc. He's not strictly against it, he just tells it like it is.

Does anybody know if Jarvela's dreads are neglect?


General Talk

They look crocheted. Quite messy though so maybe he leaves them alone now but started them that way.

Dreads "killed" by crocheting - how to save them?


Help! Save My Dreads

How was the 2 year old dread started? You can use jojoba oil to try to condition it and soften it a bit.

Anyway, they don't look too bad. If you did it once to start off with, it'll be fine :) your hair will loosen on its own, and then it'll start to dread up again, so don't worry!

I think it's a good idea. It's not meant to be hostile or an argument, it's meant to be sharing information and sharing opinions as a way of seeing where each side is coming from and promoting unity rather than judgment amongst the various kinds of people who dread in various ways. I think it can be very well done if done properly :)

...It's just one can of worms after another being popped open on here.

I'm posting the same thing here as I am in response to that video.

Why should there be a debate over dreading methods? As long as someone is accepting of whatever the possible outcomes may entail, why can't they just do whatever makes them happy and not be judged?

My Wax Experiment


General Talk

Nice one :) even people who believe in starter methods often don't promote the use of wax, from what I've seen, so hopefully people are wising up.

Yeah, but that's not aggressive, just a misconception lol. I mean, people's biggest complaint about you or about this site as a whole is that you/we can come across as judgmental. And I know you go above and beyond to helping people educate themselves and help keep dreads healthy, but the way you word things can make people see it as an attack. So me, personally, I think a video debate will be excellent, because with voices, they'll be able to see very plainly how much you care about people and their dreads, and that you're not judging or attacking.

I just think if you're going to agree to the debate, we want to promote unity and education amongst all dreadheads, so we have to make sure it's fair for both sides, right? If it's one person against a few people, that one person's voice might be drowned out a bit.

In that case, you should tell him that, so he knows members from DreadsUK can join the debate, otherwise it'll be one person debating against many people, and that'd get very crowded quickly.

I can't speak to a camera lol but I'll be watching, I think that'll be an awesome debate :)

But won't it be a bit unfair if you have multiple people on your side and he only has himself? Got to be a fair debate!

crocheting


Dreading Methods

To 'create' dreads, it's not too bad, unless you do them too tightly. If to maintain them, that's when damage is caused more, because it breaks hairs, so over time, the more you crochet, the more hairs break, until eventually the dread is severely weakened to the point it breaks off.

People who use wax also are very loyal and happy customers, it doesn't mean it isn't damaging, just that people don't see the damage it does. The thing about dreads is that the outside can look perfect, while the inside is a damaged mess, and you can't necessarily tell.

Besides that, it's kind of like palm-rolling; you're doing it to fix something or maintain dreads, make them look neat. And then not long afterwards, they're messy again, because that's life, but also because the thing you're doing to tidy them is causing them to get messy again lol. So damage aside, I think it's pointless, because you'll be crocheting to cover up the frizz and mess caused by crocheting. It's a never-ending battle.

Restarting dreads after a 1 1/2 years...maybe?


Help! Save My Dreads

You realise that dreads mature eventually, right? So, by that logic...every time your dreads mature, you'll want to start over again to get back to the messy, growing, changing stage. So you'll have to constantly restart your dreads again lol. Which is fine if it's what you want to do, but it sounds like an urge that you'll always have once your dreads go past that stage. So if you want to settle down with them, you'll have to get past that urge, sooner or later.

I had a similar thing, so I combed out a few dreads. Six or seven in total, and left the rest.
