deciding between tnr and neglect


Dreading Methods

For those trying to decide between these two methods, this is my opinion....

When deciding which to do, there may be many factors.

1. speed - If your main concern is getting dreads, and getting dreads fast, you may lean towards tnr. then again, the dreading process is about patience! With the neglect method, its a beautiful thing to enjoy every stage you go through, watching your hair change every day and become more intertwined, most of all letting the love grow for your dreadies as they progress. Make sure you want them for the right reasons! if speed and the look is all you are going for, research some more on the natural journey! it is very rewarding and spiritual.

2. looks - tnr may be the choice for you if you decide to keep it on the conservative side. but..., fyi, once they start to mature, they are just as prone to loopies and twists!

SO.., ive had my dreads for almost four months. I started with tnr, and got to 28 on the underneath layer of my head. after this, i was pretty hesitant to plunge into all of my hair, so i decided to wait! while waiting, and not combing, i realized the top layers of my hair was separating and dreading its self! after three months of watching my twist n rip vs neglect dreads, the neglect dreads are so beautiful! they are so smooth and look so healthy compared to the twist n rip, not to mention, the way my hair sectioned itself looked way better than the dreads i sectioned off.

now i have decided to start over. I want all natural dreadies! i combed half of them out in three days, its a super meticulous process, but im so excited to let them do their thing :]

if looking for advice on making your decision, i suggest letting nature take its course! throw away the comb, and enjoy what happens. its a beautiful thing :]

much love.

General Talk

Is the app called dreadlockssite? I can't find it

soaring eagle said:

ok the apps creatted and waiting to be published

the app will allow full functionality (except events and search at this point i will try to get a search added to it

we are helping the app developer test and develop the apps to work on all ning networks

so feedback is important on a weekly basis at least

the app will allow comenting replies status updates photo vids blogs discussions

almost everything u can do on the site the app will let you do

actualy to have all the features on it and any new ones to be added its gonna be 49 a month

there will be 1 small ad on the app to hopefully cover the costs

time??


General Talk

where is the love?

it is a fact that they can begin to dread in hours,

ive woken up to a new formed neglect dread! i was very suprised and happy :]

dont dog on se..,

i would be lost in my dread journey without this site, in all honesty. my original plan was to backcomb and then use wax to hold them together. then i found this site, and said fuck that. now i got happy healthy dreads. whoop.

Twist and Rip your own head


Dreading Methods

they'll look awesome! im not sure it this is for all tnr dreads, but if you make too big of sections, you will eventually get some buck wild loops. my larger ones are nuts, i love them, but they are not really conservative. at all. the smaller i have, the less loopy they are. thats all the advice ive got. j

happy trails!
