My babies are dreading at the root!


General Talk

I think I do the root rubbing thing too...not on purpose but just because I play with my hair or rub/scratch my head a lot when it itches (usually a sign I need a wash, when I start doing that). All my best dreads so far are the ones in the back from me sleeping on them at night, so I figure rubbing must not be too bad.

Yeah. Mine too! That's what I mean by dreading. I want mine zig zaggy so it's a good thing for me. Before, they weren't even zig-zagging it was just straight loose hair.

Yeah I think it's because of my hair type. It's always been super silky fine but very thick, and it's always knotted soooo easily. It was meant for dreads. When I brushed my regular hair before it would be knotting two seconds later.

My babies are dreading at the root!


General Talk

I'm in my third month and my dreads are finally starting to dread at the root! Yay, this is so exciting! After I put them in with tnr I decided to neglect them instead of doing anything to them, and after a week or two and a few washes a lot of them completely un-did at the roots, some as much as 3 inches. 3 inches of loose hair...at times it was a struggle not to root-flip or crochet them but I didn't. I just left them completely alone.

I'm so glad I did because now amazing things are happening to them and it's so cool to wake up every morning and see that while I was sleeping they dreaded up!

Just posting this for anyone who might be worried about loose root<33

What exactly are these?


General Questions

You know what it reminds me of? Those pharmacutical commercials that tell you this long list of side effects at the end of the commercial, some so horrible you almost have to laugh. I always think, "THIS is their commercial, the thing that is supposed to make you WANT to buy this stuff? WHO DOES THIS WORK ON???"

It's the same with that site and their examples of what they do... who sees those pics and thinks "I want to look like that!"

The scary part is people apparently do...

Yes definitely take out those bands. They look good I think! You can't expect perfection one week in.

Why is the community here so against maintained locs?


Dreading Methods

You didn't but you did just pretty much call the hair of most of the people here ugly.

Please quote me where im telling ANYONE that THEY should keep their dreads tidy and crochet them. Please do.

I don't know if you have noticed but you are ALSO shoving your opinion hard and fast down everyone's throat.

Dreading Methods

I think it's funny that in 10 pages we didn't even answer the question in the most basic way. The reason people here are against it is because this site is for a more natural approach to dreads. I mean it says it right up there at the top "Dreads, natural dreadlocks."

There are a few other dreadlock sites out there, like dreadlock truth, who are open to all sorts of approaches to dreadlocks. I'm on that one too but I prefer this one because my dreads are natural and it's the best way I feel. If some of you disagree sooo strongly with this approach why not join one of the other sites instead of acting like there is something wrong with people's opinions on this one?

Dreading Methods

I get that you feel that way. I personally don't give a shit about money. That isn't what life is about for me. I'm an artist and I've always been poor and never really cared because I've never wanted material things. But I also do not have a family to support, so I feel you on that and respect that.

What I don't get is why have dreads at all then? Why not just buzz your hair, shave your face and be mr. clean cut corporate guy?

What I also don't get (regarding getting jobs) is why crocheting them, interlocking the, whatever, would matter verses letting them be natural. It seems to me that people who judge others for having dreads just judge the dreads period. (thinking they represent being a stoner, or being dirty, whatever). It doesn't seem like that sort of person would see the dreads being crocheted and suddenly think they mean something different. Crochet/maintained dreads might look a bit "neater" but they are still dreads.

Because missing an opritunity to get a great job and support your your family BECAUSE of your hair is both silly and selfish

Whip Thehooper said:

I totally agree with what SE said about jobs. When you go to an interview you are interviewing THEM as well. Why would anyone want to work for someone who would judge them for having dreads???
