Totally Jumping Into This


Introduce Yourself

Welcome!! I too had the epiphany around my 30th birthday to just jump in and start dreads.  I couldn't be happier and love seeing them progress!

I can't wait to see how your hair turns out!

Not sure about dreads but considering


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Welcome!  Gooduck with your journey, I'm almost 5 months in but did a starter method. My hair us stick straight so it's been more challenging at times.  I think your hair will take nicely.

My phone does that too where it cuts off. I turn it sideways though and it fixes itself so you can see everything.

My best advice is to just let it go.  I did twist and rip method but almost all of them fell out. The ones that were allowed to form on their own look much better and sit better on the head. The more you touch and tweak the more harm you are doing.  They will turn into fret locks as they say ;).  Mine just turned 4 months and are now at the point that I can say, ok these are good, and I can relax.  I don't worry like I did in the beginning weeks.

Keep up with the natural way and i think you will be much happier.  My husband back combed his but wishes he would have gone natural.  His ar 1.5 years old.  

Good luck!

Some more technical questions about washing


Dread Maintenance

I second doing your hair in quadrants. I put a small amount in my hand and work each section. Good luck!

Sky Blue baby dreads


Member Journals and Timelines

Love the faded look of them.  I'm thinking of dying mine to my natural color so they are all one uniform color.  Right now I have the ombre look going from when I used to highlight my hair

A day with the ocean


General Talk

I live 15 minutes from the ocean and I go in 1-2 times a week.  I usually then wash them the next day.

I have super soft hair naturally so I find I do not need to condition and the salt water really helps dry it out a little. I plan on getting a spray bottle to fill up for the colder months when I can't jump in for a swim.

Question About Loose Fringe Hair That Won't Lock Into Any Dreads


General Questions

My husband had this problem as well.  It took a while but they finally formed their own dreads or paired off into the closest dread.

Good luck!
