a few less than ideal dreads
Yes, any loose hair will dread up if left well alone. The only thing you'll need to do is wash it and separate if you notice any start tangling up together
Yeah, they'll be fine. Mine looked like a load of braids when I did mine myself 7 weeks ago. Now half of them have started looping up. I did a few of mine very tight though, through fear of them falling out and lack of knowledge or faith and those ones are only just starting to loosen up so I don't expect any loops for a couple weeks yet.
The dreading process is all about patience, I can't emphasise this enough. Just give it time and you will reap the benefits
I've just purchased a lovely yellow bandana which I fold up into a headband and tie that round my head to keep my dreads off my face. If you tie it loosely, it won't affect your dread progress. But I would also highly recommend the sea salt spray or rinse as it has worked wonders on my dreads.
I'm 7 weeks into my dreads and my partner hates mine also. I told him I'd love dreads about a year ago and he told me he'd leave me if I ever had dreads. Needless to say he didn't! I waited til he went on holiday with his friend abroad and put them in myself using the tnr method. He came back and was disgusted with me! He said "It's your hair, do what you like with it, but I hope you know, they look s**t!!!" Cheers then lol.
He still doesn't like them but the comments have stopped, especially since his friends complimented me on my dreads. He told me he won't marry me if I have dreads......he'll have to bloody propose to me first!!! Lol.
Just be head strong and don't back down. It's your husbands issue, not yours, his issue is not your concern, nor can you control it. He'll soon get bored of putting them down! Please don't let him tell you how you should or shouldn't wear your hair, you'll only kick yourself for it and resent him.
Believe me, I can relate. More power to us for being unique and true to ourselves
Hey BlasphemyBlack. Have you taken the plunge yet?
My boyfriend still isn't keen on them, he thinks I'll get bored of them and take them out. I corrected him and told him that these are keepers! One month in and they're coming along nicely. There are a few loops and lots of loose hair but I'm loving the process of it.
