Looking for someone to Twist and Rip me! ^.^ happy to pay for good work.


Introduce Yourself

I am in Michigan but could twist and rip your dreads for you if you wanted to meet up. You don't have to pay me :)

I just like making new friends and if you need help TnR'ing your dreads why shouldn't someone help you?

How long does it usually take dreads to form?


Dread Maintenance

you should probably just leave your hair alone since combing out back combed dreads is just as damaging as back-combing.... so stop picking at your hair! It probably needs to rest for a year or two.

If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

I would use .75mm hook. my friends usually use that size when they need to pull in loose hairs or ends and it seems to work well for them.

Just don't over-do it and you will be fine.

We need a "My hair won't naturally dread" support group!


Dreading Methods

SE you are one of the most confrontational people I have ever encountered. You make me feel like I shouldn't comment on anything, because you are just going to belittle my thoughts and actions. I hate the way this forum males me feel but for some reason I keep coming back to offer my own experiences so people know that there are other options.

I hope I never meet you in real life because I am pretty sure you would find a way to make me cry.

Dreading Methods

I left mine to go natural for a year before backcombing and I had no real results. I used to wash with diluted dish soap every couple days. I'm sure if I had waited another year or so it would have worked out tho, I just have very silky hair that at the time was only to my shoulders.

You're definitely not alone :) but you are going to have to be a whole lot more patient. My back-combed dreads were pretty straggly at three weeks and didn't start looking like dreads for about 8 months.

Jobs and dreads.


Life Issues Facing Dreads

keep you dreads up/ covered when you are at work, and be the most awesome employee they have ever had.

If that doesn't work, figure out your priorities.
