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??

Hi! Anybody else with less than 20 dreads?


Introduce Yourself

Yeah I will definitely keep the tips loose, because I can already see how much they help! And I really like her dreads, but I also see that some of hers are congos too, which gives the appearance that they are getting much thicker. In a way, the maintenance is easier for me right now because there are so few to keep from congoing. But even though they are already tangled pretty good, they dry very easily even without a hair dryer so it's hard for me to imagine it taking 4 days to dry, though I do believe you! I think people with massive congos of little dreads could maybe sympathize with the situation so maybe I'll find a few of them to try and talk me out of big dreads
