a interlocking loctician wanted to show me how great interlocking is


Dreading Methods

I love how everyone can come here and go on and on about wanting manicured locks so their hair isn't messy/gross/fuzzy/unkept etc saying that natural dreads are all those things, its all good and so positive and enlightening but yet as soon as some one (usually a natural dread)says something about mani-dreads and how they look they are elitist bigots?That girls hair or should I say scalp is messed up man....shes not a plucked chicken for heavens sake....where did that hair go anyway???

I had really BAD dandruff, I tried the rosemary and tea tree and both did nothing for my problem tried peppermint oil and it was like magic. I don't even have to use it at every wash now!

Dreading Methods

Makes sense Neil.Raw is in a pissy, he's just looking to push buttons, I think the wax has infiltrated his brain.

1 existing in or formed by nature ( opposed to artificial)

it dont say formed with a comb, formed by nature, and thats what natural dreads do, they just knot on there own, in time, backcombed, t&r, crotchet, all use something to form knots,

Different Dread Methods Clarified


Dreading Methods

There are different methods to obtaining dread locks.Lets look at these different methods.NeglectHair sections, knots and forms dread locks on it's own without manipulationNo separation involvedThe way the hair dreads is the way it staysHair is washed when neededNaturalHair sections, knots and forms dreads on it's own without manipulationSeparation is what separates neglect from naturalFingers are used to separate dreadlocks that are perceived as too big by the ownerHair is washed when needed and sometimes conditionedTwist and RipHair is separated into desired sections, twisted and pulled upwards, like the name of the method suggests once the dreadlocks are all formed using the tandr method they are then left to continue dreading and are separated by fingers when dreads are perceived as too big by the ownerwashed when needed and sometimes conditionedBack-combedHair is separated into desired sections and then a comb is used to tease the hair sectionsOnce entire head is sectioned and back-combed it is left to continue dreadingHair is washed when needed and sometimes conditionedCrochetedHair is separated into desired sections and then a tool is used, usually a crochet hook, to knot the hair and form locksThis method is usually maintained by continuing to jab loose hairs into locks with a hookSome people leave it be after crocheting onceHair is washed when needed and sometimes conditionedWax is typically used on tandr, back-combed and crocheted dreads by some people but not advisable as it prevents knotting and promotes mold and dirtMixedSome people use a mix of all the methods mentioned aboveTams, woolen hats, are used by dreads of all methods to promote knottyness and keep locks clean.You use whatever method suites you.When some one asks what method you used tell them and be proud, you are a lion!

I didtnr but the majority of them fell out. maybe not all at once but over time most, if not ALL, came loose. I didn't do anything to them though and they all found their own place and are kind of all over now. i probably washed my hair about once a week... or so. because it takes long to dry. and i'm lazy. lol but all in all i'd say my hair is pretty healthy. It's nearing about my fourth month now. :3
