Dreads as entertainment! (and a shout out to natural dreads)


General Talk

I love this post! Very entertaining! I'm early-on in my journey, just beginning the loopy stage. A few of mine look like crab claws and one is beginning to zig-zag. I've really enjoyed seeing what they're up to when I separate them. I had no idea how fun this would be!

just starting out, need advice and help.


Dreading Methods

Welcome, Jacob! This site has all u need to know. I'm almost a month in to the natural neglect method. After I stopped brushing my hair, it only took a few days to section itself. My hair is really thin, and most sections are on the smaller side. All I do is wash w baking soda, rinse w diluted apple cider vinegar and separate the baby dreads after washing. 'Hope that helps. :)

natural neglect hair sectioning


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

It totally worked out fine. I got a bit paranoid at the beginning, cuz i couldn't see the back of my head very well and found out i had a 3 inch section dreading together. I ended up undoing most of that giant dread when they were about 2 months along, but it re-dreaded really quick. Now, at nine months, they stay pretty well separated. i still go through and separate after each wash, about 2x per week.

My hair is doing this, too - I posted on it before finding this thread. How is it going now? Your photos show our hair is similar in some ways. I am also sharing your profile with Zom-B, who will be in the same boat soon, I think.

natural neglect hair sectioning


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I'm 3 weeks in to my dread journey and noticing a lot of the sections my hair is forming (especially in the back) are long and skinny, like 1 1/2 inches by 1/2 inch. Will this be problematic in the future? Should I pull them apart into 2? Some of them are really dreaded up already and I hate to undo progress. My hair is also super-thin, so my baby dreads are really thin, too. The beads I have on them only have 3mm holes. Any help will be much appreciated. :)

washing every day


Introduce Yourself

I've been washing every other day, too. I'm on day 19 of natural dreading and they're knotting up just fine. My hair is also really thin and dries quickly. I've really been liking the baking soda wash and apple cider vinegar rinse. My hair has stopped getting really oily by the second day, like it used to do when I used shampoo. I don't plan on ever going back to shampoo. 'Hope that helps! :)
