Dreads looking like straight up Kitty Poo! Help!


Dread Maintenance

Just wanted to let you know you saved my life! and the lives of my kitty poo dreads... they are no long 'poopy' - I brushed the ends out and they look great! Thank you so much BaBa! I know what to do now when this happens.

You could get some jojoba oil and a gentle brush. Then massage the oil into the tips of your locks. Then GENTLY brush out the tips s they are wispy again. Blunt tips will cause major problems with drying in the near future, if they haven't already.

Sorry for not checking, but did you crochet?

I think I will do exactly that! Thank you... and yes they were crocheted to create the dread, after that I haven't/will not touch them. However I do now know that it's the reason why they're clumping at the end, sadly lol

Hi all!

So I'm at the one year mark for my dreadies! They look amazing from the root-5 inches down and then they look all ratty, reallly clumpy and quite frankly like cat poo... How can I changes this? I love bumps and loops, but I don't like these hard huge clumps.

Here are some pics to give you an idea... the quality is crap, so whatever.

I'm telling you, you've got to believe me man... The way they do it is different. They do not break your hair. She said it was like felting but different. It's a very small crochet hook and she takes hairs and tangles them. She knots them with the hook.

If I wanted to I could brush them out and still have a good amount of length. It would take a long time to brush out obvi.

hahah I did look! At them time, I just thought that dreads had to be started this way. Thankfully mine turned out really nice. I guess I got lucky.

Some look better than others in that gallery, but yeah I thought all dreads were supposed to look weird at first. It was so painful too.

I know you say felting is horrible, but my hair isn't damaged at all. I could brush them out if I wanted to and have next to no breakage. Maybe some people do damage when felting... not mine though

Yeah, I know you guys usually assume that dread salons are shite... But this one is actually really good. They do 'felting' but it's not in the way you guys are saying with breakage of hairs and such. They just arrange the hairs so they knot faster.

I got them done here... The only thing is, they're ultra expensive. However, it took the girl 8 hours to do them, so I would be charging ppl that amount as well, lot's of work. I didn't want to do the twist and rip, or just neglect. This started them out nicely organized, looking nice. I didn't have them fall apart or anything like that. Just personal preference. I have the money to do it, so I chose to spent it. They are looking fantastic these days.

Hey, thanks guys!

I got these done at a really good salon in Toronto. They don't use wax to make them, however, they tell you to use it afterwards to prevent fly away and such... I listened to them and used it, thankfully only a few times. I was able to get the wax out by using 'wax-be-gone'

Now I just leave them be. They're dreading beautifully. I keep them clean... keeping them clean makes sense to me because oil would prevent dreading, would it not? Dryness makes for good knotting. So yeah, I'm keeping them washed, not using conditioner really. They're knotting up nicely.

If I wanted them neater, I use aloe gel, and sometimes a little bit of hairspray.
