Dreadlocks + The Hardcore Modification Community


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

i've retired my 2nd lobe holes that were stretched to an 8g i think, my 3rd lobe holes that were maybe a 10g, my 8g conch, a tragus, 3 cartilage piercings, a 4g flat, my nostril, my double high nostrils (that i'd love to have redone), labret, tongue, nipples, 0g inner labia, 4g fourchette, & a christina.

i've downsized my lobes from 3/4" to 1/2" & 5/8". downsized my top navel from 4g to a standard 14g, my lower navel is also a 14g, my septum is 4g, VCH 4g, medusa, 4 out of 6 clavicle microdermals are left & i want to replace the missing ones. & i have 2 small easily concealed tattoos.

in the future i'd like to replace my missing microdermals, restretch my navel, get my lobes to an inch (which will require a scalpel to reposition the hole & then stretching to size), maybe stretch my septum one more size, redo my double high nostrils, get a vertical labret, get my tragi done, both conch & both flats dermal punched, either redo my tongue with a larger gauge or possibly a split, redo my nipples, get a scarification piece, i have plans for a few larger tattoo pieces & i'd love to do a suspension someday!

i think i covered everything...i normally forget one or two lol

Help! Can't decide if I should keep my locks!


Help! Save My Dreads

stop rolling, they will round themselves out.

Stephanie said:

exactly! as they mature they round. don't root rub either, that just breaks hairs

Stephanie said:

Or is it okay that my dreads are flattening, and once they're more mature they might start to round out? I also root rub occasionally.

don't palm roll, as you noticed it's time consuming & doesn't last. it only does damage anyways. just leave them be & as you sleep on them they will round themselves out & it will be fine. just wash & separate & live your life, dreads should be easy & they are if you let them! no maintenance required ;)

Wet Hair


General Questions

it shouldn't slow the process because washing helps knot but as they form up it will take longer to dry & you don't want to be going to bed with a wet head or putting wet dreads in a tam because the risk of mold so once they start forming up i'd space it out more

Front of hair won't dread


Dreading Methods

wash more often & wait longer. the hair around the face is soft & takes longer than the rest anyways. 5 months isn't very long at all, i didn't even have my first knot by then! give it time, love & time!

will beads help with my crazy lumps?


General Questions

leave the beads on for a while or wrap them for a bit, but the lumps & bumps are a necessary part of dreading, they have to be able to shrink up (creating the bumps) to knot. i wouldn't suggest palm rolling because that is only a temporary fix & works best with wax (which is really bad), & it can do more harm than good to your dreadies. the bumps will pull in & smooth out (mostly) on their own when the dreads come to maturity. it's just a stage to wait out
