they call these "beautiful dreadlocks" made in just 1 day?


Dreading Methods

In all honesty, I have seen worse.However I do think they used some wax or too much of something. I hate how they call it magic, kind of gives me the creeps of what magic crap they put in his poor hair. I also think holy crap, how tight they did them. Poor scalp. It also appears at the least they crocheted the crap out of them, and I also think I saw a rubber band in one of the tips (although I could be mistaken)I only hope this guys scalp recovers and that his dreads will eventually loosen up enough so they can lock on their own and be free.

i thought i wanted perfect dreadlocks now i love how unique my dreads are


General Talk

I was so there months ago and when I first started, fussing and all, now I love the loops/especially fatter and conkykinky curvy textures and yes (gasp) even the flatties.It's funny because I don't even palm roll regularly anymore. I haven't in a month or two. EEK lol..rock on sister!BTW- I'm also a recovering permie

the price of well maintained salon dreads


Dread Maintenance

Salons aren't always what they seem. With changing trends, Salon dreads are all the hype right now. I even bought into it after knowing someone who had salon dreads that I once thought were gorgeous. She suggested I see her stylist.I had a salon nearly ruin my dreads with a "dread perm" and then want me to go back for regular tightening (which by the way folks anyone can do it home, as they use known techniques and instead of rubber bands they use thread to tie in the hair). My dread hair is so brittle now from chemicals. You wouldn't know it from my pictures but, I have had to combine and am still slowly combining dreads that are waaay thinner than pencils and about to break off (those dreads are hidden around the larger healthier ones). Literally I have dreads so thin I can count the hairs easily as they only hang by about 12! I have taken hair from my hairbrush and dreaded it into the weaker dreads hoping to feed their weakspots. Doesn't sound great does it? Beware fellow dreads of salon disasters and greed.

dread girl on american idol


General Talk

I don't watch much tv and never watch American Idol. Last night I was at the gym walking on the treadmil (of course I am not working out hard since I am pregnant) and the shared tv had AI on it and several others watching. I couldn't help but also feel she was very talented and hoped she'd win. Her dreads are really gorgeous too!

Was turned down recently for a pizza gig


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Seriously, not like I cared so much about this job, but I am actually more taken back by the way I was "let down".

We have an aquaintance that is a manager of a very casual, nothing special, pizza joint locally. I already have most of my day taken up by being a mama, apprentiships, and light work at a doctors office, but I thought It would be nice tohave more of a cushion to help us out.

So when I found out they let someone go and was looking to hire, I mentioned I would love the job. I live close by and am reliable. I have great work history, and I figured the manager and I being nearly friends.. Well.. I figured it was no big deal. I even told them I would wear a hat.

Get this I was told: " you have great work history, references and no doubt would be hard working, but your just not what we are looking for".

WOW.. Just WOW..

Probably illegal to discriminate like that, butno way I can prove it, not really wanting to deal with the drama either.

Just thought I'd share. It's a screwed up world out there. LOL

Rubber bands/ elastics


Dreading Methods

I was going to say the same thing everyone else already has.. Good to see that you figured it out and took them out. Rubber bands are known for melting and breaking.. Not good.

A quick thank you


Introduce Yourself

I wouldn't cut it all off and start over, just clean it all up the best you can and start fresh. You hair will probably have some damage, but that damage may just help it to knot quicker this time.Salons unless highly reputable are most often scams. The good salons that know how to do natural dreads right, are few and far between.Sorry that happened to ya man, I hope you can get your money back.

What Are The Positive And Negative Sides of Dread Perming??


Dreading Methods

Yea I agree, I believe a dreadperm may actually be bad for your hair. Dreadperms are usually meant for hard to dread hair, asian and caucasian. Your hair is ideal naturally to dread. Since you don't want to neglect what about twisting and crocheting? Or sisterlocks?
