Gray Hairs


Introduce Yourself

I didn't even think of that! (: I do have pets so that could be a possibility! I just want to make sure I'm not damaging the hair somehow. Thank you for your help!

Gray Hairs


Introduce Yourself

Hello :)

About a month ago I noticed a few wiry gray hairs in one of my baby dreads. I picked them out, which caused the baby dread to unravel a bit, and didn't worry about it. Well now I have been noticing more gray hairs in a few baby dreads. They're not noticeable by anyone but me, and are very short. It's not lint; definitely gray hairs. I am only 18, and the dreads with gray hairs were twist and ripped. I use do not use wax or any product, and the only maintenance is separating and washing. Could this simply be the old hair shedding?

Bald Spots?


General Questions

Hi! :)

I've never seen the bottom layer of my baby dreads yet, and they feel like they are forming the quickest so I asked my sister to take a picture of them for me. When I lifted the top layer up in the picture, I saw those big bald spots. I was wondering if this is normal? When all of my hair is down there are no bald spots :) My hair part also looks a bit wider, but not majorly. I hope this is all due to the sectioning and that I don't end up with a bunch of bald spots. Thank you!I am posting the picture below because I feel that it shows the baby dreads better :)

Hello!
I haven't added any pictures of my baby dreads, so I thought I would now :)
I backcombed a few of the top layers, but most were twist and ripped or neglect. I don't use any product or maintenance besides separating and washing. I still have a lot of loose hair, and no one can tell that I even have baby dreads; they look like "normal" hair for the most part. Although the ones on the bottom layers are beginning to form and shrink like crazy. I have some that shrunk above my chin. I'm surprised that many of them are beginning to blunt on their own.
I'm really happy because I hardly have to separate now :)

Here are some pictures of my hair before:

And here are some pictures of my baby dreads at about 4 months:

Thank you for reading! :)
