and by short, I mean somehow when trimming random pieces of my hair months ago, I ended up chopping some to about 5 inches long lol just a little piece which can easily hide under other dreads later

Would you still recommend neglect sectioning of I have some odd pieces underneath that are much shorter than the rest of my hair? When I originally did mine, I just grabbed all the short hairs to make one short dreadie so as not to worry about them so much. You have got me really interested, now, though.

So if I wash my hair tomorrow, my hair will start slowly sectioning itself but not conforming to the old sections? Did you use neglect method to get your sections? I am afraid that my hair would try to lock up in crazily uneven sections like the manual ones before haha I will check out some neglect timelines/forums though c:

Non-chemical salon dreads


Dreading Methods



And I have heard of the nasty consequences of salon retwisting, but I will check it out to reaffirm and show my mother so she understands

Non-chemical salon dreads


Dreading Methods

I am too nervous for the neglect method, I think, but after a lot of struggle, I took mine out and am going to simply have them sectioned by my cousin who is a hairstylist, and then let the sections do as they will. Maybe a little backcombing to speed up the process, but not sure yet. I spent a few days enviously scrolling through dreadlock pictures and feeling more and more uncomfortable with my choice to do such big wad sections. :(

Really sad to have just finger-combed out my two week old+ dread babies ... I only had 13 fat dreads with really half-assed sectioning and after deluding myself into thinking it would be fine long enough for them to really start knitting up, I finally decided to take Soaring Eagle's advice and start them over while they are still young. I don't know how to explain this heartbreaking feeling. But somehow, I have come to realize that this was necessary for the fullness and longevity of my spiritual tendrils.. Really just feeling low because I put so much love, energy and work into them already. And now I have a huge fluffy head until my cousin can properly section my hair for me in a few days . . .

Non-chemical salon dreads


Dreading Methods

I did my dreads by myself, so naturally they have very un-uniform sections (grab n go) and they are very messy and aren't a lot of them. I love them dearly, though, and they are knotting up well at just over two weeks old, but my mother hates my faded pink hair -says it washes me out, so she wanted me to dye my hair and get the dreads redone at a salon. I thought about it, for a moment, only because I have heard uniform auctioning is much easier down the line, but changed my mind when I saw the pricing listed for start up locs! (non-chemical methods) and WOW! 75-95$ an hour for 5-6 hours!! That is so outrageous to me, when it takes about the same time as a cut and color which would only cost about 75-95 for the whole session!! Why would that be?? I'm no longer interested in redoing mine (not that I was too enthused in the first place, but my mom pretty much kept on my ass for an hour and a half saying I looked pasty and crappy in the politest way she could manage lol) I feel guilty for even thinking about it - I love my fatty uneven baby dreads. But why on earth would it cost so much to get them done in the salon??
