Question about drying


Dreading Methods

After washing i wrap my hair with a microfibre towel for like half an hour and then i let mine airdry. Normal towels can cause lint into

the dreads so i would buy a microfibre towell instead.

The same has and is happening to me. All my ends are round and mostly flat, too. Just in the front i still have a couple of loose ends, but i think they will soon get blunted as well. I think that is how our hair type is forming dreads. My hair starts with knots at the curly tips and works its way up to the roots. I guess that's why almost all of my tips are blunted. But so what, i like em like that and that's what nature does to me. I really like yours too!

Thank you. Yeah. Our hair type looks similar. Always starts at the tips and works upwards, round at the roots and nearly flat at the tips. They are different for sure. I've not met a person yet that believes I started them naturally by simply not brushing.

Yeah that's true. I talked to a girl with crotcheted dreads a while ago and she could'nt believe that i will not do anything against the flat ends in the future to get em round and straight. I guess she also did'nt know that it is possible to grow dreads without doing anything except washing. That is sad actually.

Little update. Sadly I've lost almost all my wispy tips. They are all flat and rounded now. Several things have been different, the shower is hot instead of cold hose water, I'm out of liquid shampoo, also I've been pretty neglectful and only washing once a week or a couple days over. When it's cold and you're showering outside you tend to push hair washing off. 

My new hair is finding its way into totally new dreads between the established ones. Not sure of my current total but I'm sure its more than 55 now.

Too much sebum/ scalp grease.


Help! Save My Dreads

wash more often, like every 2-3 days and rinse with cold water the shampoo out. it closes the pores and that will help.

Too thick?


General Questions

don't worry, they are going to reform pretty quick, because they already know how to do it and where they belong.

Too thick?


General Questions

I would split the front one in 2. It seems like it has formed out of 4 single strands. If you consider to comb it out, i would let only 2 of these strands combine again, then the final thickness at the end shout be just fine. The use of olive oil has helped me a lot to comb one out last year. Much love!

Well, thank again for your feedback. And yeah, I guess that sometimes I kept my hair in bun, especial in the summer when It was extremely hot. but for now, I guess I'll try to avoid that, and even my lucky bandana can stay in the drawer for a while.

yeah, right on!

Nice! I wish you all the patience you need for your new journey! I have learned that wearing the hair down from the beginning is important for yourself and for others to get used to it.

I know it, my husband don't like dreads. But, he knows this is what I've been doing since 2002.

Yeah, i know what you are talking about. My girlfriend was against dreads in the beginning, too, but she expected those stiff and unnatural looking hairstrands. Through the natural way and the "slow" progressing process she got used to it in a better way and she is not so anti anymore. One funny thing is that she still don't believe i am doing nothing to them except washing Happy

So i guess time will tell how your husband will get used to it, huh?

these a good news! I think your hair has the right length now that the dreading process will start everywhere. Normally you find the first locks where you sleep the most on, but the rest will come along soon, too. Keep up your washing routine and wear your hair down most of the time and everything will be fine.
