using thin rope/twine


Dread Accessories

sweet thanks guys. i do take out my stuff occasionally just to make sure they dont get stuck. especially with my glass stuff i made out of my first chillum. any suggestions how to tie it? not sure what its called, but i just tied it like the first step of tying shoes then did it again with the leftover string on the other side. not sure how long itll stay tied

using thin rope/twine


Dread Accessories

today i found a small kinda ropelike string and decided to use it as a wrap or to hang an earing from without poking a hole through my dread. i think it was originally used to hold a tag onto some pants lol. well anyway i was just wondering if this would be ok to leave on for extended periods and for washing. im lazy and barely even take out my glass and surgical stainless steel at all.

please help with this frizz ball


Help! Save My Dreads

ive had that happen with a coat hook lol. dont try to force or tuck loops in though. sometimes you can gently pull down if the dread is kinked up like that and itll kinda fix that. the best thing would be just to let it be and it should tighten back up but if it really really bothers you you can hold the dread with one hand just above the loop and GENTLY pull the loose loop hairs out and leave them be to become part of the dread again. if the loops are long the top and wont come out easily though i really wouldnt suggest doing this. since you had some backcombing/teasing done the absolute best thing is to leave it alone to avoid more damage.

Help! Save My Dreads

like everyone else has said, dont do anything and just leave them be and theyll fix themselves. palm rolling will only make them look neater for about 2 minutes, so constantly rolling them and doing damage is not worth it. the messy stage can be tough to get through, but youll be in it for several months ahead. try to learn to love your hair the way it is. i myself am getting to 6 months shortly, and am still in the messy stage. it bothered me for a bit, but to me my dreads will be worth the wait. something you can do as well as coming here for encouragement, try to think of dreadlocks as an obstacle course marathon. you must get through the troubles others try to give you as well as the inhibitions you give yourself in order to come on top, the prize being your own unique and beautiful locks.

locking solution/faster locking question


Introduce Yourself

i wash my hair with soap (residue free of course), but only about every 3 to 4 days unless it really needs it. im just saying on my off days i run water through it. also helps kinda "style" them after i sleep. bed dreads xD
other way to dread faster, wear a hat. youll have to start seperating them every day or two

the baking soda wash is "no touch" so you aren't scrubbing at all or actively washing. just water may work for some ppl but i know in my case my hair gets super oily/greasy & gross & it needs to be clean to knot. just putting that out there. maybe someone with drier hair could get away with that.

I get why people use wax now...


Dread Maintenance

makes sense. all i know is i had water to to searing hot to try to save my first set, and when i took them out dissected the remainders and was disgusted with what i found. there was not much wax left over in them, but there was dirt dust and mold starting to form. wish i wouldve taken pics lol. isnt there someone from this site that used wax once and years later still had build up from it?

yeah i noticed that with the effects too. theyre a big reason its so hard to get through the vids. just so annoying. i found the part it sticks to his face though. if you look close it kinda moves along with his jaw as he talks xD i dont quite get the dread butta either... put something in your hair to cover up the feeling that you just put something else in your hair. id like him to cut the last few inches of that thing off and dissect it just to see how much leftover gunk and nastyness is there.

soaring eagle said:

haqha yea he contradicts himself constantl;u

i dont get hgow people can even think hes telling the truth when he says exact oposites all the time

the thing i noticed however is his visual edits arent just to look cool they are designed to distract you from thinking about what hes saying

anytime hes lying not =making sense or contradicting something he just said theres always a silhoutte of a bouncing butt or a trippy edit or something going on to distract you from thinking

in a way he is a master marketeer or scammer in that he can tell you hes lying while mking you think its thr truth just cause hes able to keep you from thinking art all

i use the word move very loosely lol. i just rewatched parts of his vids. i remember where he points out its sticking to his face and wanna see it again, but dont quite have the patience to find the part. i wish i wouldve seen his vids before my first set though, just cause when he says "what im telling you is completely unbiased. the people telling you not to use wax are biased." red flag. he sells the shit, so how is he not biased, as opposed to us that advise against it that have nothing to gain from others not using it.
he also says that wax works by getting on the inside of the dread so dirt and stuff dont get trapped since hair is on the outside, then explains dread rot being water forming mildew in the dreads, coincidentally alongside all the gunk in there. sorry for the long rant, but thats what started happening with my first set so i kinda have a bone to pick with people like him.

soaring eagle said:

u actualy saw a jonny clean dread move? or did he move it by hand

ive studied his vids watchubg him bounce around like a clown but his dreads never budged..

and it was funny when he even pointed out the 1 that was gluyed to his face as hes talking about wax not making dreads ticky the vid freezes an arrow pops up and a caotion..is that a dread stuck to my cheek?

why dont ppl get it..hes laughing at the ignorance of his customers

wax is pretty much the devil lol. makes me think back to when i had that shit in. funny how you see johny clean talk about how good his dreads are and the one in his face moves as one solid piece from the wax in it. dreads that long should move like ropes, not sticks
