T&R (Twist and Rip) How often should it be done???


Dreading Methods

i done mine with TnR two weeks ago and apart from washing every few days have left them alone and am really happy with the messiness :) most of them unravelled a fair bit but i just left them and they seem to be sorting themselves out just fine however the hair on the base of my neck came unravelled all the way and hasn't shown any sign of joining the party, like its silky and straight.. which is even weirder considering it was thick and curly before dreading! would it do any damage if i re done them?

Why not to wear hats when natural dreading - my year and a half journy and the effect the hat had.


Saved Dreads Success Stories

man, i'm going through this EXACT same thing. i dunno i've worn some kind of head covering pretty much every day for the last 7 years and i'm having a real hard time trying to convince myself to stop. tappin into some deep self esteem issues here, wish it wasn't such a big deal but it just is for some reason. weird, i know.

Wool hats/tams


General Questions

okay thanx, and also is it bad for your dreads to spend a long time under a hat be it wool or otherwise? like is it better for them to be out more often or doesn't really matter? the reason i ask is because i wear a loose beany to work made from nylon because its allot thinner and cooler but when i get home i have a big, thick, loose one and was wondering if it would help them out to wear wool when im home or just let em loose.. btw theyre 10 day old TnR baby's. cheers, i freakin love this site :)

ooh one more thing, any preferences for best hat to wear? gotta look as clean and fake as humanly possible for work so if i can keep em under wraps till they tighten up without hurting them that'd be awesome :)

Introduce Yourself

hi everyone, glad i found this site :)

my names sam and ive been contemplating dreads for a while now. i havent used shampoo in my hair for over 12 months though ive been just using conditioner when it feels dirty so im well and truly past the oily stage from not washing. and i rinsed my hair the other day in salt water just to see what would happen and it was almost instant dreads :) (my hair is about 6-7 inches long, brown, curly and thick) i did cut it in a mohawk about 3 months ago but its grown out now and looks pretty goofy so im getin the sides shaved tomorrow to regain the hawk and then im thinkin about dreadin whats left. i was thinking of trying to section it a bit to avoid the part straight down the middle of my head (from an undercut that was worn from age 10-13 :P) but otherwise i wanted to go natural. also any oppinions/experience with twist an rip? im stuck wearin a beanie with the back of my hawk hangin out the bottom so it looks like i have a mullet so the sooner i can get dreadin the better i reckon :)

cheers guys
