How long does it take?


General Questions

Speaking from my experience, it takesmaybe a year to mature once they have formed. Just let them be and before long, a year will have passed...

1 year of natural dreading


Member Journals and Timelines

Hi Rose, I found the BS to be ok, my hair is not straight at all though, quite wavy almost to the point of forming ringletswhen it is grown out.After growing it for a year or so dreads just started to form without any input from me. Perhaps that is the difference, is your hair naturally straight? It sounds like your dreads are forming ok though, mine start the same with tangles in the middle of the section then cotinue to tangle more. The whole process seems to speed up a bit as time goes on...

1 year of natural dreading


Member Journals and Timelines

Well its been 1 year since I started dreading. The process seemed a little slow to bein with, after finding my first dread i seemed to average 1 dread forming per month though it has picked up pace in the last few months. At this point I have 12 well formed dreads and half as many again at various stages of dreading.

Up until a few weeks ago i had been using BS to wash, now using Dreadlock shampoo bars. I reckon on another year beforeI have a full head of mature dreads.

This is after 6 months dreading

9 months

and after 1 year

Need some Help!!!


Dreading Methods

Welcome aboard. You will need a bit of patience, it might be 6 months to a year before your hair is long enough to start dreading itself. When it is ready it will happen though. I started with a crew cut and just let it grow and about a year later i found a small nicely formed dreadhad developed without me knowing - apart from washing i pretty much dont do anything. 6 months later i have maybe 8 dreads, all naturally formed. If you plan on keeping dreads for a long while then a year or to of waiting at the start is no big deal overall. Happy journeys.

the last wild man


General Talk

Yea i was thinking of 'into the wild' too, great story. Im quite interested in Alaska, spent plenty of time in the mountains here but they are not on the same scale as over there. Our highest peak is 10000 odd metres, highest settled areas are maybe 900 metres, about 3000ft. There are areas here that are rarely visited by people though, high rainfall up to 30ft per year. Some think there may be moose still surviving there, remnants of some that were released there many years ago.
