help with loose hairs?
I'm almost at 4 mnths and although alot of progress still loose hairs everywhere.Some people close to me don't see the beauty in them yet. I just wear hats and wraps and strength 2 go on.
Hello....i used twist and rip then neglect. no sectioning just grabbed hair. Dreads 3 1/2 mnths old. I have tons of hair. My hair is dreading really fast for 3 1/2 mnths. I was a little sad yesterday because I asked my husband 2 section my hair (pull apart)and he couldn't handle it He sayed the back was forming one big dread at the roots and I need professional help with them..LOL.I admit it looks a bit of a nest right now. I've went to seperating every other day. Is that too much? When I separate my dreads it never seems to seperate all the way to the scalp.I pull two dreads apart and all you see is hair in the middle. Just need 2 know if everythings ok. I've attached pics.
i'm sorry I don't know about your hair type. Other than it has the ability to grow some amazing ivory masterpeices.:) So i apologize.. this is from an ignorant point of view. How long was you hair when you started dreads? How often do you twist them? Will breaking be an issue because your dreads are so thin? Would you mind letting them go natural? or would the new growth and loose hair not work for you? How do you think they are doing?i guess i'm asking you to educate me...LOL
My first attempt at dreads back combed and waxed. Looked good for two days then poo after that. Took out because I couldn't handle it 3mnths. Second time natural. Took it out because my dreads where big balls in my hair. 2mths. Now I twist and ripped and am very happy. Once you do research you will know what all I am talking about. I learned from trail and error. i also learned before I started my last set that I needed to built my patience, and self confidence. So I could handle the negitive and learn to emprace the good. My heart just kept saying dreads. i got tons of compliments on my non dreaded hair all the time, but I wasn't happy and that's what made the difference.
dreads are a journey. I can relate them to the stories of the boys going out into the wilderness and coming back a man.
But in a moderncence beginning dreads, going through the disapproval, sterotyping, Questioning your decision, worrying about jobs and what others think. Going out in the world with your dreads at first can be scary. thenyou figure out for yourself what you think and then realizing you have the courage to stand up for what youthink...I think dreads build character like that.
If I was your friend I'd tell you if you havethecourage to believe..then I don't doubt you:)What helped me was studing dreads and everything ascociated with them. So if someone sayed ....I was trying to be black or somthing like that...I would say...I am that i am only by the grace of god. And if someone asked me if I was a rasta...I could say40 percent. i respect the way of life but do not believe in some of the principles. Like the above post many interesting people have came up to me and had conversations with me different types from when I was main stream. A lot more of my kinda people creative...open minded ect. i was so unhappy with my life because i wasn't being true to myself. Someone called me a name I'd just mope around and believe then and do what they did because I didn't have the courage to do my own thing.
10,000!!!!!!! wow were you tempted to take the money? I was thinking...I lived in JA for a time and if one had dreads they were called rasta mon.No questions asked.I suppose it's like if I see someone with a cowboy hat I would call them a cow boy. If somone called you a rasta mon what would you say? Someone asked me if i was and I said no just free, but if someone said, "rasta come here".. I would come.

On the begining of my journy I've learned to not need others approval and to listen to that voice inside telling me to throw away my comb. My mom has offered me 200 dollars to take them out. My husband likes my straight hair. My cusin said ono not again. On the other hand different types of people come up to talk with me People who are more interesting to me becuase I am attracting those like my true self inside. I get several positive comments from others too. So in the end it's that voice inside that matters. My family will learn to love it
i used to want instant perfect dreads. A long time coming I realize what others were saying all along. Easy come easy go.....
I'm finding myself in this world while my hair is finding it's palce on my head. I may not have dreads forever but I will forever know what it means to be a dread
