Is it normal for only like half of your head to be dreaded by 11 months if you are doing freeform/natural/neglect?


General Questions

yeah, from what I understand it can take up to two years for most/all of your hair to end up in dreads.
I personally started on July 4th, what has formed mostly seemed to be around the edges of my hair. Along my forehead, along back of neck, around ears etc it like makes a circle around my head but most of the "crown" of my head doesnt seem to want to dread as easily. Im sure it will just take more time/patience.

How to use Vicki's just for dreads shampoo


Dread Maintenance

I was just coming to ask pretty much the same thing.
How often should I be using it?

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

How big is too big?
I know Ive heard "its all about what you like and if you like how it looks it doesnt matter"
I can only imagine a lock that in a 3inch by 3inch (heaven forbid) section would be near miserable to try drying.
Also I could imagine at that point you may end up getting "tugging" making it uncomfortable because its pulling at your scalp.

If thats the case is 1 inch okay? My friend is a licensed cosmetologist, I was thinking maybe once a month going to her and having her make sure nothing is locking in larger than a 1 to 1 1/2 inch sections.
Just to clarify all she would do is separate them by hand if they are getting too large, nothing else.

Washing


Dread Maintenance

When you say you are washing it once a week do you mean with shampoo once a week, or only once a week in total.
My hair didnt really start to lock up until I stopped using shampoo completely and washed my hair with water every day before I left my house.
I havnt noticed any sweaty smell.
Water, air dry, profit?

Hey it's my 2nd day . I have no idea what should I do . Just washing with water no shampoo , towel rubbing n using salt water. 



No towel rubbing brotherman, only let it air dry or shake the water out.
It can/will stop your hair or reverse any dreading that has occurred.
Towels shouldn't touch your hair when you're dreading.

yea i tell ppl if they are going to use sea salt use it about as often as the average person gets to the beach..which typically isn't very often


This leads me to a question how often exactly would you recommend using a sea salt spray if one decides to use it?

I'm curious also now, because I live very close to the beach and go quite often.

General Questions

Thanks sarswimmer, I had been hand drying my hair with a towel...seemed to do more harm than good as my hair seemed less matted after.

I had a feeling any sort of restrictions placed on hair would slow the dreading but I was wondering if in some cases it can absolutely halt the process.

General Questions

I searched around a little and didnt see the answers to these questions.
I am certain they are there but I dont have time to sift through it all right now so thought it would be easier to just ask.

1. I think I remember seeing somewhere on these forums that you are not supposed to towel dry your hair for "neglect". Am I just supposed to let it air dry itself and not touch it at all?
2. Is there anything I can do to my hair to make it a little more manageable while is starting to lock itself up? example when i work in my garden it keeps falling in my face/also I used to bun it at the top of my head while i sleep so it doesnt choke me out. Any alternatives that wont hinder the process or should I just man up and get used to it?
