Grace's Natural Dreadlock Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

Thank you so much! (: And I use shampoo bars. I like to try out different ones, but the one I'm currently using is a sea salt bar from Whole Foods (I'm pretty sure the brand is Indigo Wild). It seems to serving its purpose well!

Grace and Bella's Dread Progress- 1 and 2 months


Dreads in the Family

I just wanted to share a few pictures of our progress so far! Bella's dreads (on the right in the pictures) are a little over two months old, and she's loving them! She was close to brushing them out because of a few negative comments made by her friends. Because most 11 year olds don't have dreads, she was struggling to not let the negativity get to her. But, thankfully, she kept them! And I personally think they're looking amazing! Now my dreads (on the left) are a little over a month old, and they are SO loopy. I have to be honest, I'm getting a little jealous of my sister's dreads because they look so much neater and farther along than mine! Hers were a lot more formed at 1 month compared to mine. I was wondering if this could be because my hair is a good bit longer? Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos!

Twist and Rip Looking Like Braids


General Questions

I have about 15 dreads amongst my hair that were made using T&R, and I've noticed that quite a few people have mistaken them for braids. Is it normal for T&R dreads to resemble braids at first? If so, when will the braidiness of them start to go away?

Little Sister's Dreadlocks


General Talk

I am proud to say, my 11 year old sister decided yesterday to start the neglect method. And even after a DAY, its already separating and getting pretty knotty. So at this rate, she should have dreads in no time! She's just too cute, and will be even cuter with little dreads! (: Knowing I recently joined dreadlockssite, she suggested I start posting pictures of her progress. So those of you that are interested will be able to witness her exciting new journey toward dreadiness!

Natural/Neglect Method Issues


General Questions

Thats the thing, I'm not sure why it's so difficult to separate. The underneath of it just gets so tangly that I cant even pull it apart! So I end up brushing it out :( . I was just really wanting to do it the natural way... but I may end up doing twist and rip if all else fails. I have naturally wavy/curly hair, and I'm worried that if I do twist and rip I'll loose that aspect of my hair. So I was thinking if I do it the natural way.. my dreads will still have the curls and waves (correct me if I'm wrong).

Natural/Neglect Method Issues


General Questions

I currently have several dreads amongst my hair. Although I'd love to have a full head of dreadlocks, I struggle to commit to it. I've tried the natural/neglect method a couple times, but it seems like after only a week or two my hair is a huge tangled mess! Big chunks of my hair get all tangled up (especially the underneath). It doesn't knot up in nice, small sections... and separating it is nearly impossible. Based on the way it knots up, it looks like eventually i'll end up with only a few giant dreadlocks. So whenever I try the neglect method, I end up brushing it all out after a few weeks. I just have a few questions about how I should approach this issue. Any input would be much appreciated(:
