Tips balling up and linking


General Questions

How awesome fellow nc peep! I live on the coast!  I seperate certain sections more than others so you just have to go with What feels right.  I have had 2 that I had to rip apart in order to prevent huge sections.  I have a few others that are bigger than I like but they aren't going to come apart unless I comb them out so I'm waiting to see how they mature and wil go from there. 

Can't wait to see how you progress

General Questions

My hair also likes to make little u's.  It was kind of like 2 dreads were holding hands.  All the loose wispy parts would join in with each other, which was pretty annoying.

It has sorted itself out  now but when it was going on I would gently seperate after washing and then sort of twist the ends together to dry using my finger.  It helped to the the flyaway a little until it dried. Now that those dreads have w inches of dread and aren't little knot balls at the bottom they don't catch nearly as much.

Hope this helps

Don't know what's happening to the back of my head


Dread Maintenance

So to me I'm thinking several things.  I assume you are talking about the spots where you can see the line of your scalp?

It looks like it might be how you sleep.  That might be where you rest your head and it is pushing up along that dread section and pushing the dreads apart, showing more scalp.  It may also be causing those spots to dread up and get fuzzy making it look like less hair is there.  

I would try to switch your sleep position and see if that helps reset that area of your head.  Your hair us short so I think that makes it look a little more noticeable.

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!

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!
