% 1/2 MONTH UPDATE!!!!!! Coles Patient Journey In the comments!!!


Member Journals and Timelines

Looks good so far! :)I don't know too much about separation. My first set, for whatever reason, didn't really need any separating. And now I'm only day 2 on my second set lol. There is an awesome video floating around on here though I heard! It tells you everything you need to know, and shows you exactly how to do it. I hope it helps! I just wish I knew where the video is so I could tell yalol

neglect dreads forming where old dreads were


General Questions

Thank you!I know, I'm so excited to watch it all over again! The loops and lumps and bumps and craziness! And now that I know what to expect and not to worry or fret bout any of it, it'll be that much more enjoyable! Before I was so worried and caught up in them looking "perfect" that I ended up crocheting and using wax. Blah! :(So that's why I'm starting over fresh. And I no longer like the "perfect" look. Now, perfect to me is them looking as natural and crazy as can be! Letting them look however they want :)

neglect dreads forming where old dreads were


General Questions

Okay, I've been very back and forth on whether I should TnR this set or just go neglect. I've decided to go neglect, and I just combed out my year-old dreads to redo my dreads (due to horrible maintenance choices I made in the beginning of that set, and bad sectioning). I'm only a day without brushing, but my hair gets scraggly fast and I can kinda see where it looks like it might start to section in some places. My old dreads were only combed out about a week ago, and my underneath hair by my neck is still kinda frizzy and tangly where the dreads were, even though I've combed through and got all the tangles out. I feel like my hair underneath is starting to section and knot back up where those dreads were, like my hair is still used to being in that section. So I was wondering if I should hold off on letting my hair start to dread until my hair no longer has a "memory" of the old sections? I don't want them to just form right back where the old ones were, because some of those sections weren't good sections. They were very unnatural. So should I wait a few weeks and let it all get back to normal, or is it okay if some of them just form back where they were before? I hope this made some sense lol:)

Dread question about section sizes!


Introduce Yourself

Good point with the congoing! And I guess I'll just make the sections no bigger than the biggest I'd want them, just in case! Thank you!

Dread question about section sizes!


Introduce Yourself

I know this is in the wrong place, but my phone would only allow me to choose "introduce yourself". Feel free to relocate this question! :)Okay, this is hard to explain. My question is how long does it take for dreads to fatten up to the size of the section they're in? Although I was planning on starting this set of dreads neglect, I think I'm doing twist and rip instead. I know everyone says they plump up to the size of the section, but my hair is very fine, and with my last set, even a year in, my dreads were still thinner than their section. Were they maybe not done fattening up, or is that an indication that maybe I should make my sections a bit bigger than I want my dreads to end up being? I want some fatties this time (within reason so they still dry okay), but I don't want to make huge sections if they will indeed end up that big. Surely hair strand thickness plays somewhat of a part in it, right? Someone with thick, coarse strands is bound to end up with fatter dreads than someone with very fine hair strands, even with the same size sections, right? Or am I wrong?

I was actually thinking the same thing too, about it growing as it does its thing. It should be long enough then. Thanks!

General Questions

That's awesome! Your hair looks really good! You're very lovely! :)My hair has kind of a weird texture. Like the individual hairs are really fine, but have almost a coarseness to them. My hair is also a little wavy with a bit of volume/body. I never thought I'd say that I'm lucky it tangles easy! Haha

General Questions

How long did it take to start knotting? I feel like my last set woulda tightened and matured so well if I hadn't messed up and crocheted and used wax :( That's why I'm starting over, neglect. I feel like my hair tangles and gets scraggly pretty fast lol, so I'm hoping it'll go kinda fast! But patience is the key!
