unhealthy dreads


General Questions

yes i'm African. i'm glad to read that I should just sort of leave them alone. i have no time for my old routine! i'm down with congoing and no ive never interlocked them, but i have knotted some together to force a congo. i'll come back tomorrow with a pic.i'm going to buy a tam, odd huh that someone who has had dreads for this long doesnt have one to rest my scalp. i cant really wear them over my shoulder, the baby pulls on them when they are out. ive worn them braided or in a ponytail forever it seems like (throughout pregnancy too) and the constant pulling has affected them as well i thinki'm so happy i found this site and very pleased with all the responses in such a short time.soaringeagle said:
dont twist them too much twisting adds to damage, instead either allow some congoing or encourage it, dreads that are really weak at ther roots slip a bead over 2 dreads so they combine into 1
or just stop seperating and fussing and they will on theyre own

years of twisting probly did more harm then hormones altho it can have an affect for sure

my ends are ratty too from dragging on the ground wear and teart etc
but so what..lol
id only worry biut ther roots and

ummm your african? you werent interlocking were u? hope not

can u post a close pic detailed so we can see how bad it is?

unhealthy dreads


General Questions

I'm a new mom of a 10 month old. I basically have not had time to take care of my hair for and it looks it. I'm on the verge of cutting my waist lenghth dreads off!It is very thin at the roots due to the postpartum hair loss hormonal thing (my dreads were thin to begin with) and i'm having trouble joining up the new growth when i can find some time to twist. its ratty at the ends and is brown whereas my roots are black.is there anything I can do to save it? or is it time to say goodbye (my hair grows faster in the summer, but i dont konw if they can make it until then)

Whats it like being a dready parent?


Dreads in the Family

I haven't gotten anything but respect when i'm with my daughter...although i have one intolerant friend (friendship is a give and take right? he gives me other things...i accept his occasional intolerance - sometimes) who assumes I'm going to dread my daughters hair.ummm sure I'll dread her hair...if she wants me to!I braided her hair and unbraided it and left it loose without combing it (she's has baby fro), if thats any indication how she'd look locked...its MADD cute!
