Seperating dreads


Dread Maintenance

Thanks for the info :) I have developed a number of those in betweeners now that I have a few fat locks on the back of my head. We still might be freaks though who knows :)Sister Rags said:
Nicholas, I have exactly what you've described...exactly. So I guess it must be pretty common with natural dreads - either that, or we're just a couple of freaks ; )

Seperating dreads


Dread Maintenance

Interesting. All my hair except the front parts are mostly locked up. I have 4 fat ass locks on the back of my head that I make sure I keep separate. I have a feeling I'm not going to have a large amount of locks due to the size of these ones, which is fine with me. It is a crazy feeling to touch the back of my head its so cushony like a big pillow and it sticks out like an inch more than it used to. Its so awesome.Spider Feet said:
Going natural you will get chunks of loose hair in between dreads, most of it will either form it's own dread or combine into another later. I still have a few patches of loose hair at my hairline, not a big deal. No one notices unless I point it out to them. I repeatedly get asked what I 'do' to them, how I blunted my tips, etc...I get strange looks when I tell them "Nothing....".

I have been grabbing at the root and ripping them apart but today when I did so I tried to also seperate some stray hairs that I thought would go with that lock also and those stray hairs just ripped out of my head.soaringeagle said:

Seperating dreads


Dread Maintenance

Hello all. My hair has been dreading for about two and a half months. I have noticed some massive knots at the roots on the back of my head. I have been separating by tearing apart the larger locks. Today, when separating I ripped out a decent amount hair that was not part of the lock but between this lock and another. Is that common?Also, I notice that when separating the locks by tearing them apart I actually create like very skinny scraggly "in between locks" if you wanna call them that but they are very thin (with only a few hairs) and scraggly looking. Its difficult for me to decide to try and rip them as a part one or the other lock because they don't seem to want to go in either. What would you guys suggest I do?

What dreading methods did you use?


Dreading Methods

I'm about 2 months in just totally neglecting my hair other than some seperating and habbitual twisting with my fingers. I'm looking forward to the next months progress because I have some signifigant seperations in the forming locks.

I have been using baking soda to wash my hair but I notice that even after washing my hair remains feeling greasy. I was wondering if anyone has tried Natures Gate Organic Shampoo?

Back again :) Also is this dread tam too tight?


Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone. I had started my dreads a couple months ago but a couple weeks in i combed them out. I've decided to restart them and am now 40 days in with no comb or resi shampoo. I have been looking into wool dread tams but until I get one I have been using a wool sweater on my pillow at night. Also while looking through a bag of hats last night I found a 100% wool hat. Its more of a tighter taboggon with a brim. My question is: Can the hat you use to sleep at night be too tight? This hat is not extremely tight but in order to jam all my hair into it makes the hair pretty much stuck in one little tight pile right on the back of my head. Is this ok for the hair? This morning I woke up and let my hair out to find it was all folded up like an accordian and massively chaotic, which is fine. Plus I noticied the hair to be about an inch shorter than normal just from smashing it into a ball. Is this ok or should i invest in a looser wool tam that allows the hair to rest freely with some movement instead of being smashed into a tight little ball.
