Day 3 and need advice.


Introduce Yourself

Hey Samantha, it is completely normal for TnR locks to loosen. you actually want them to loosen. If they are too tight it will cause a number of issues. I've also read here on the site that there should be loose roots. I am growing natural locs but did try an experiment with TnR on one section that seemed like it would take a long time to progress. I was not happy with the result, and took it out after a few days. It just kept getting tighter and more rough. Now that area that had a TnR is section in a whole different way (not from the TnR but from where the hair naturally wanted to go.

So yes, it is ok to be that loose. your scalp will thank you later. Hope this helps, and I'm pretty sure someone else will chime in on this topic. Hope you have a great day! =]

Also, it is good to wash, Clean hair dreads the fastest cause oily hair does not like to lock into knots. Pretty soon all the stray hairs will find a home. Generally, I've read that people wash 2-3 times a week. This allows your hair to dry properly between washes so you don't get rot/mold.

I ship worldwide! Each inlaid bead is different, I usually use gemstones or glass. The individual listings have descriptions where it describes the materials I used for each unique bead. If you would like a custom bead, just let me know and we can work out the details. :)

Great beads Fox, I'd like to get some more wooden ones one day when my locks start to thicken more. <3 the orange tree is awesome, and I totally dig the earthly ones. For the inlay, what kind of stones have you used? Is it possible to request other stones/ crystals too?

As long as I have you here in a thread, I was wondering if you'd be willing to add my shop to the dread accessories section of the shop pages? I'm listed under arts and crafts right now, which is great! But since I have a big stock of dread beads now (and listing more every day), I was thinking it would help people find me. I know things will change up when the new site goes live, but even just for now would be great! We could use the dread bead section link so people can click through directly to the dread bead part of the shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/OneUrbanTribe?section_id=10443153

I actually just put a couple in yesterday to help keep the hair separated. Wood beads feel the lightest so far, and the color blends in with the hair nicely. I was thinking to take them out when hair was drying. It's not too hard to put them back onto the same spots. =] We will see what happens. Good luck! =]
