Dreads for a month and a few weeks and they're eating eachother already O_O


Member Journals and Timelines

yeah until my real dreads grow out and I decide to cut the fake dreads off. they are just like my real dreads though, they lock on their own and all. They don't feel fake and dont smell weird or anything. I like them alot (:ricky williams said:

I dont really want them to come out :p lol like I said they are real human hair so I dont think it will matter but I'm sure one day when my dreads get long ill just cut them out. well like ill cut closest to where they attach and then just pull the rest of the extensions out. (:Island Mamma said:

I've had my dreads for a little over a month now. I put 12" human hair extensions in around my second week and just lightly crocheted them where my real hair and the extension met and then I wraped them with string. I was looking in the mirror today after taking a shower and holy cow ! they are getting shorter and locking nicely. my real dreads are even eating my extensions ! the extensions used to be almost to the middle of my lower back and now they are about 6inches below my shoulders. My dreads are eating eachother too at the roots. 've been gently tearing them apart but there are some that are just to combined so I'm letting them do whatever. I feel like my dreads are going through these stages quite early. I did the back combing and t&r method and I didnt even experience unraveling. Any one else experience tightening , or anything in the early stages of their dreads ?

How many Dreadlocks do you have?


General Questions

that's sweet. I hope you have fun and enjoy them. And SE I'm all for the natural way and I probably would of done it myself , But some people like the look of the "made" ones. Or sometimes people just dont have the patience to do them the natural way. Dana will learn on her own. Life is all about trial and error, That's how you gain some knowledge. I'm sure she is aware that stylist's probably aren't the best people to go to for locks but it's her decision as far as how she wants her dreads. I love your advice though and I think it's nice that you care about all of the users on this site. As for you dana, Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

well my hair is very thin and my dreads are quite thin too. I have 27. My boyfriend has really thick hair. His dreads are big and he has 47. It's not fair lol. I think that you could either do thick or thin. with my experience helping my boyfriend do his, the thinner-medium dreads (he only has a couple) Hold alot better then the really thick ones.

Dreading Methods

Awesome (: Just curious, How long have you had your dreads for & did they start to unravel or even come completely undone? My boyfriends are kind of coming undone but he just did the back combing method. I have faith in mine even though I see stray hairs they're really tight. I also love meeting other homeschoolers. They are usually very unique people. Being home schooled was my choice. I do online courses though (: I just got tired of the constant drama and seeing others hurt people. I think you should let your 13 year old start her dreads. Then she'll experience the journey too and learn to be patient not to mention the fact that all of her friends will think she's the bomb (;MeganMama said:
Ciaralynne,
You sound like a younger version of me:) I did the same method as you (went through and re-did a bunch so that they are all a good combo of t&r with backcombing.) Turned out really well- nice and tight (I haven't posted an updated version of it) and whatever comes loose will be left to dread on their own. But they are holding really well- even after washing. And....I'm not homeschooled, but I homeschool my 3 kids. I love to run into other homeschoolers. Especially homeschooling dreadheads:) My 13 year old is waiting patiently for me to help her start dreads too. Glad to have you join this forum.

I "made" my locks just yesterday by doing t&r and backcombing. It makes a really cool texture. (like all lumpy. I did backcombing at the roots then t&r and then backcombing and then t&r and backcombing ect.) I haven't used any products at all and I'm wiling to accept the fact that they'll probably come undone. My hair is really dry and really curly so as of right now (2nd day) they are pretty tight. If they come undone I'm just going to let them do whatever. I'm homeschooled and hardly have a social life so its not like I go out in public much.I used to be a material girl and always tried to fit in but after going through what seemed like a million struggles in my life I started a new journey where I just dropped everything and started being true to myself. Even though all I have in my life is my mom and my boyfriend I am still very happy. I decided to get dreadlocks even though my hair is only about 8" inches long because I wanted them to be like a way of catching all of the good vibes& memories. I dont know haha I guess I figure It's time I start over and just forget about the past and just start over. My first chapter being with dreads. I'm one of the least judgemental people and I know alot of people in the world around me are judgemental but I hope they can see past the locks on my head, Or atleast look at the uniqueness and strength that you have to have in the first place.(Letting yourself go) I fear the unknown so having dreads might be a struggle for me but I'm hoping maybe they'll help me get over my fear. My boyfriend on the other hand is freaking out. We backcombed his hair and he's freaking out about all of the loose hairs and he always wants me to fix them, He's constantly telling me to tighten them and try to make little dreads out of the loose hairs. I just tell him to let them go and do their thing. I hope he calms down soon lol. As for others like myself who are just starting out. Just know that if you made them and they start to unravel, Don't freak out. they will tighten and the loose hairs will come together given time. Good luck to everyone. (:
