Watching youtube locks


General Talk

I like to think of it more as a giant photo timeline.  being able to see a photo journey of someone's progression.  you can tell some people have extensions or crochet/do maintrnance.  I do not go to them for any advice, I stick with this site for any questions or dreadication questions.

Just a good place for a lot of pictures of dread heads at their different stages of their journeys

Watching youtube locks


General Talk

I follow dreadication, wonderlocks, dreads.rule, dreadshare, and a few others.  I also follow individual dreadies that I like the look of their profile.  there are some great male dreadhead as well as awesome females to follow.  some I like are:

Female: dreadfulcee, thishappyhippie, encoreever, ellyverandi, 

Male: messy dread (he's just starting), daydreaming101, atillazq, zanderwaves, dropbeatsnotbombs

But they are my style.  there are so many out there.  a great place is to look through the search feature.

AMPs Natural Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

Thought I would chime in on the lower back hair not dreading.  I was having that problem too.  it seemed like nothing I did would help the hair.  

FINALLY at 4 months to 6 months the hair just started dreading.  I have some that have 3-4 inches of dread now and feel like it's finally progressing, however slowly.  ir has definitely been frustrating though.

You can look at my timeline and see in the photos around 2 months what mine was doing.  then you Can see my video that shows where it was at 5 months, which is a lot better.

I also posted a seperate forum on it and got some encouragement.

Time is all you need.

9 months neglect video


General Talk

It's looking great!  awesome to see the progress you're having.  I think I'm going to let a few of mine Congo as well so they're not so thin in some places.

Keep it up

I only look at a few people on You Tube but I do follow a lot of people on Instagram with dreads.  I love being able to look back at their progress and see where it is now.  Or finding people in my same time of the journey.

Will this hair ever dread? Feeling frustrated


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Just wanted to post an update on this to say that Soaring Eagle and all the rest of you were absolutely right.  It does just take time.  That section of hair is now completely filled with dreads.  They are anywhere from 2-3 inches of knotted tip to all the way to the root and progressing great.  They will be 6 months old in about 2 weeks.

I am trying to get that area cleaner with the dreadlock shampoo by focusing on that section and that has really cut down on the oiliness that I was having.  Today I washed it and had to do a massive separation as everything was trying to knot together down there.

So if you are feeling like your hair isn't progressing just know that time will make it happen.

*peace, love, and happiness*

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

Tips balling up and linking


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!
