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.

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.

Confidence


Introduce Yourself

No one can beat you at being yourself. If they try they'll lose 100% of the time.

We are all unique. Everything about you is unique. From the pattern in which our hair grows out off of your our scalp, the pattern your veins and arteries made when they formed in your body, to the pattern of your irises,

The only thing identical twins share with each other is their bone structure.

Put your confidence in the fact that you are you and no one can be you better than you can.

Is there a such thing as too thin


Introduce Yourself

Too thin? No way. Most of my dreadlocks are less than 1/4 of an inch thick with some that are thinner than 1/8th of an inch thick.

The last time I counted I had at least 100 dreadlocks.

Just starting out. Steer me in the right direction


Introduce Yourself

For the moment.... When your hair gets long enough to tangle from the wind blowing it around your dreadlocks will be in the baby stages of forming.

Wash your hair on a regular basis even if it is twice a week or even once a week. If you just started washing your hair less often your body is beginning to adapt and produce less oil.

If anyone gives you any grief about your hair not being brushed out when it gets longer just tell them you are going for the "Wind blown" look. Most people, especially the women and hair stylist, understand what wind blown hair is and shut up fairly quickly.

In the future. Because your dreadlocks will start to become heavier start doing some neck stretches to build your neck strength up over time.

Because no is better than you at being yourself don't stop being yourself. If anyone tries to beat you at being yourself they will always lose at being you and being themself.

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.

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.
