Found a dread..want to clean it up


Introduce Yourself

Let it go. Brush the rest of your hair as usual if u dont wish for the rest to dread. It will tighten on its own over time. Any kind of methods to progress the dread will damage your hair. Give it three more months and u'll have a dread. You can stick a bead or wraps on it anytime you want.

Perfect example of the ignorance associated with dreadlocks...


Introduce Yourself

The post is supposed to be funny...i get it...what I DO find astonishing really ISNT the joke, but the ACTUAL real life comments that were used to make the joke. Obviously those are real and those people are so ignorant beyond belief...like wow. But the article in general I laughed. Lol. If you really think about it, the post isn't making fun of white guys with dreads...that's not what's funny...the post is making fun of those who make SUCH a big deal out if it. THAT is what's hilarious... Like why the hell is a white guy with dreads so freakin weird to you people?? That is what this article is about.

Seborrheic Dermatitis


Introduce Yourself

I have the same thing. I use selsun blue. My hair type is usually very dry tho so it actually helps my hair to dread ALOT. You can try this and see how it works, might make your hair too slippery tho. Try different things.

DREAD HELP!! does this look right?


Help! Save My Dreads

No. Brush it out. It looks as tho you made a pigtail. Just let your hair go natural.

Dread-related dreams


General Talk

When i had used backcomb/crochet hook and wax methods in the past i had often dreamt that my hair would fall off or i would brush them out. I took it as a sign that my subconscious was ultimately NOT happy with the results. I had brushed and cut them off after trying each of these methods. I am neglect/natural now with only separating and ive not had any bad dreams with this set.

neglect and pony tails


Dread Maintenance

Loosely tie it back, not tight and not thought out. Just grab your hair and loop the tie one time. use a wide band with cloth material NOT rubber bands or elastics. Use a piece of cloth or ribbon even. Wash often and leave your hair out as often as possible once you get out of work. Wear a tam at night. I have to do the same thing for my job, but as soon as i step out the door i take it out and i also wear a wool tam to bed. Its dreading wonderfully. Washing makes it very tangled too so wash 2-3 times a week if you want, shake dry and stand in the sun.

Neglect so far. How do I proceed?


Dreading Methods

Lumps are good, do more research, you will see that losing length is normal. Losing alot of length is even more normal .

My hair doesn't dread!


Dreading Methods

What i do for work is i wear a very loose band just to hold them back and once i leave work i immediately let them out. Also, i tam it up alot too. Bandanas, and wraps are also an option, other than that, i push em out of the way sometimes so they dont tickle my nose lol. Face the wind, that helps toolol
