Confused... should I still have some faith?


Introduce Yourself

Dreadlocks are the ultimate end to "Wind blown hair." When you have had dreadlocks for as long as soaringeagle has those disappearing sections aren't going to matter at all. I have super fine hair like you do and I have sections of hair that form and seemingly disappear also.

Get outside more often and let the wind do what it does for dreadlocks. You don't have to go anywhere to be outside.

But those sections are appearing and disappearing many times.. esp. when I wash, they kinda disappear because i have to scrub a little to get rid of dandruffs..:(.. I'll try not to wear the beanie now onwards..

Seriously.... You have more dreadlocks than you think you do.

Do you see all of the sections that are forming all over your head? Those are "Baby" dreadlocks.

Stop wearing that beanie especially when it is windy outside.

I'm nervous about starting my journey again.


Introduce Yourself

My dreadlocks were started with twist and rip. However they still developed further through neglect/patience.

Having a set started after the school year ends will be better for you than starting a set at the beginning of the school year.

Baba Fats said it once already so don't worry about the people you don't already know. Meeting new people gives you the chance to be yourself with more people that won't expect you to act or be a certain way.

saltwater


Introduce Yourself

Yes. Be sure to rinse your hair out when you can. Otherwise you will have a layer of salt on your scalp.

Just being on the beach is good for your dreadlocks.

Remember....dreadlocks are the ultimate end to wind blown hair.

The wind will do most of the work for you. The only thing the wind won't do is pull sections of hair away from each other and wash your hair regularly.

2 questions: Separation and Drying


Dread Maintenance

Adding to Baba Fats's post.

Drying: Using a towel to dry your hair as much as possible is another option for winter.

When dreadlocks get more mature you can wring out excess water before you step out of the shower.

tnr done wrong ?


Dreading Methods

Although I wouldn't limit size of sectioning due to individual preferences that are well personal. (IE: some people may want three huge dreadlocks and make three sections with all their hair or some people may want at least a hundred dreadlocks)

I'll second what Barrellady said in her post.

Just Starting Out & What To Expect


Dread Maintenance

Just adding to the information:

Hair growth: Your hair doesn't stop growing. If kinks and loops happen because of hair growth, one could say shrinkage happens because of hair growth also.

help! fresh meat


Introduce Yourself

Hello, Lo.

Welcome to the site and enjoy being yourself while you have dreadlocks. While you are still in the early development stages, spend a lot of time outside enjoying the wind.

Ignore the ignorant comments you may hear from people around you they'll change their tune as your dreadlocks keep developing. If you happen to have a job at the moment tell your boss. "Dreadlocks are the ultimate end of wind blown hair."

Measuring dread/dread beads


Dread Accessories

In most cases it's all about trial and error. Find a bead and put it on a dreadlock. If the bead falls off easily the bead is too big for that particular dreadlock.

Personally speaking, unless I use seed/peyote stitch beads my dreadlocks are too thin for the majority of beads that can be found.

TnR Q's


General Questions

The braided look will go away in about the time Baba stated. Only to be replaced with the bumpy look from all the loops and kinks that become the core of your dreadlocks.

Stop nitpicking your hair. Having dreadlocks is more about letting go of control rather than trying to control everything. You will be more peaceful in the long run.

Dreadlocks are the ultimate end to wind blown hair, so go outside more often like you may have done as a young kid and enjoy the wind.
