10 month progression?


Introduce Yourself

Haha flat earthers :P
I cant help but chuckle at them saying nasa is just stealing billions of dollars so they can be rich and look smart.
I live right by Nasa's JPL in Los Angeles. The poor scientists that work at that place I see almost daily drive the most fk'd up beater cars that look like they almost dont work.
Those scientists are not rich, blows their whole theory out of the water lol.

Hello! I'm Anthony! Give me tips!


Introduce Yourself

Hey Anthony, I noticed our hair is very similar!
I started my dreads about July of last year and my hair was about the exact same length/texture/and even density as yours is now.

The one thing I want to tell you from personal experience (and personal regret i have currently) is do not skimp on your separation.
Its going to be very important to find someone to help you (I had no one, still dont) to keep an eye on the back of your head.
Several of mine got too large and even when I felt with my hand I thought "thats not TOO big" but in reality once it started to mature it was far too big.
I have 3 specific dreads currently on the back of my head that I can tell should actually be about 9 or 10. Im going to struggle so hard to fix it because I didnt pay enough attention. Dont make my mistake :]


Just my 2 cents because im suffering now because of it.

Back again.....:)


Introduce Yourself

I may be mistaken but didn't I read a few articles (even on this site?) that said dreadlocks are not actually protected under that law?
There was several court rulings that determined dreadlocks were not protected under Title VII. It made me upset when I learned that but I think its important to mention.

Free form dread section too big.


Dread Maintenance

Should I expect a lot of breakage to be falling out?
The place on my head where these dreads are I cant see well enough to cut (with precision) that small of a section. I tried once and a large part was actually cut off when i brushed right after.

i have a very small comb and I have been grabbing a few hairs at a time from the tip and pulling down. Once there is a loop I can put a finger through i stop pulling down and split it with my hand.
I do see a LOT of hair falling onto my sink roughly 3-5 inches long. is it because I am breaking it? Or is this unavoidable.

Also Ive noticed it seems like a lot of the smaller dreads that are forming have more of a rectangular shape as opposed to a square. I realized none of them were going to be perfectly uniform and thats what I liked. Im just concerned that they are going to look flat. ill try to snap some pics tomorrow but the best explanation I could give is they are like 3x longer ---- direction than they are | direction

☮ soaring eagle ॐ:

yea that's big and would make 4 dreads that re still pretty thick

Yeah I mean not being good with measurements I still think this is almost already 1 1/2 minimum.
The one on the exact same spot, opposite side of my head is about the same size, its definitely still too big.
Im a little worried that I should have been a lot more attentive to separating them earlier but I was always afraid of messing up progress.
I always wanted them to kind've be fatties but I think even with all your amazing information and help I still went overboard.
Always justified it "If it starts to seem to big I can just separate it then" now thats i know its too big its like impossible for me to separate it :[

I have a hard time trying to see how large they are, im not amazing with small measurements in the first place and not being able to see it makes it 100x harder for me.
I will see if I can get someone to measure the exact length of it tomorrow or something
I did take these two 11 second videos that might give you an idea of how bad it is.

Free form dread section too big.


Dread Maintenance

So ive determined there is at least 3~ dreads forming where the sectioning is far too big.

How do I go about fixing this situation. Ive tried to split them from the top but after about 2 hours of trying to use my hands to split it apart it wasnt working.
I grabbed a soft brush comb and started at it, after about an hour i saw little to NO progress in it coming undreaded.

I noticed that 2 of the 3 are in the same exact spots on the nape of my neck behind my ears.
Does this mean even if I split it, it will eventually re-dread like that over x amount of years?

Whats even more bothersome is its in kind've a upside down L shape on both side,  I feel like the empty space of the L will end up sucking in the dreads that are forming/will form there.

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Raven's Light:

I re-checked the ingredients recently from a package of the soap, the bar soap does in fact, contain sea salt, not sodium chloride. The ingredients are as follows: organic coconut oil, organic palm oil, sodium Hydroxide (but it claims that none actually remains in the soap after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin), water, organic olive oil, Metha Arvensis, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, Metha Piperita, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Tocopherol. 

It seems like it's pretty good.

Strange because their website has it listed as "salt" not "sea salt". Sea salt is sodium chloride also by the way, all salt is sodium chloride. The only difference would be the "impurities" like zinc, iron etc.
What specific bar is it?
