As an update to this, I emailed her again asking when these products would become available, with no answer. The website has not been updated a bit in the last 4 months so apparently these products are no longer planned on being added!

Getting my Whole head done soon very stoked but...


Dreading Methods

I hear ya on the frustration of sectioning out the back/top part, but I agree with the others that, being from a salon, the lady will most likely misuse some good intentions and end up trying to "fix" fuzzy-looking t&r locks with whatever methods are already familiar to her. Plus, it feels so much more empowering if you do them all by yourself.

I really recommend finding a friend that understands basic shapes, and having them point out if you make a section that is misshapen or too large. Plus, you won't have to pay them as much. Good luck!

Fine, Thin Hair & Locks


Introduce Yourself

Wow, thanks for the responses! I feel much more encouraged now.

Taye, even though I am familiar with the Samson & Delilah story (& have always been inspired by it, & other ancient texts that talk of the power that locks bring), I did not know that Vikings had dreadlocks. I'll have to look more into that!

I am aware that many people of Indian or Asian descent, with their generally thick, straight hair have no trouble with dreadlocks, though. I guess I was more addressing the problem that Earthstudios mentioned - the locks forming as little mats & balls on the bottom & not growing up towards the roots. When that happens, they mostly end up just falling out.

It seems like it just might take a little bit longer than most, & that I'm okay with, as long as I have proof that it works for some! I will most likely end up doing a bit of T&R to encourage the sections to form, & then continue with the natural-neglect method, as planned. And, thanks to Soaring Eagle & Heather for pointing out that removing the oils on your hair helps maintain a texture that encourages locking.

Sometimes it's hard not to get impatient, like I'm waiting for a tree to grow so it can give me some fruit already! But of course it helps to realize that it's all part of the journey, & I should just learn to enjoy it.

Fine, Thin Hair & Locks


Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone,

This is a great site, & I'm glad to be a part of it now.

Let's get down to brass tacks: I belong to the group of people that possess very thin, fine hair.

The thing is, dreadlocks seem to be particularly suited for those with thick, strong hair.

I believe that dreadlocks are the original, natural style for one to wear their hair in, so there must be some trick to dreadlocks with fine hair - or, are such people truly not suited to having locks? Most information on locks comes from the African-Middle Eastern area of the world, if I'm not mistaken, so did Caucasians never have locks?

So, honestly, it seems like ALL the information out there comes from you thick-haired individuals. Does anyone have actual experience or information on dreadlocks with fine, thin hair? Anything at all?

I would really like to open up a discussion on this topic. Does anyone know the "mechanics" behind what makes hair lock, & how certain hair types respond to it?

For instance, we all know that people with curly hair (meaning the hair follicle is shaped like an "o") tend to lock up much easier/faster than those with straight hair (meaning the hair follicle is flat-shaped) - but this doesn't prevent people with straight hair from getting locks. (By the way, my hair follicle has an oval shape, meaning it is half-curly & half-straight....often leading to a flat look on top & witches'-broom type flair on the bottom)

So, who has anything to say about this?

Want to dread my hair for the first time


Introduce Yourself

Speaking as someone who has fairly thin, fine hair, I understand the logic behind twist & rip. Going natural/neglect, as far as my experience has shown, seems to make the locks a lot heavier & wider at the bottom than at the top, creating an unstable "root system" for the lock to grow off of - at least for a hair texture like mine; I do know the natural method looks great on most people.

Does anyone have any theories about this? And, how much damage IS really caused by going twist & rip? When your hair is thin, it is crucial to avoid as much breakage as possible, so when do you know you've done too much?
