lost a dread!


Introduce Yourself

i never did anything weird to them. i think they must be a little crispy right now. a while ago i started washing with a little regular shampoo and mixing it with a hunk of baking soda. they seem pretty dry :-/

and nice to be back! i should get some new pics up sometime within the week for an update!

lost a dread!


Introduce Yourself

just running my fingers through my hair and gently playing with a dread when WHOOP there it was! in my hand... umm, i have plently to spare, but is his somewhat normal? it came off a little above halfway down. really thin one.

my dreads are around 3 year old now. should i condition them with something... or something??? or what?

Hello! 120ish dreads, is it too many?


Introduce Yourself

if you want to have a lot of dreads, and also look like you have a lot of hair too, i would aim for around 60-70 dreads to begin with.

Hello! 120ish dreads, is it too many?


Introduce Yourself

in my experience, 120 thin tnr dreads are probably going to start to bunch up somewhere near the botom half of the dread and form a type of "dread ball" at what will become the end tip of the dread, while the rest of thedread will continue to grow in in it's natural thickness. i think the thin, lightweight dreads are most likely to have massive shrinkage. to be honest, if i were you, i would separate lessand let them combine themselves where they want to, if they even want to.

compared to my thick dreads, my thin dreads look reallystringy now that they are mature, but with a heavy medallion thing or a super bunchedup weightyzigzag at the bottom... needless to say, i'm worried the roots are much weaker from carrying the weight!

zig zags, loops, and clumps


General Questions

some of mine are around 3 years old and they are still kinking up more and more! get used to it! embrace it! it's fucking cool. :)

the ones that have stopped shrinking and kinking just look like long heavy turds. i like my zig zag ones way better.

Dreads threatening to fall off


Dread Maintenance

UPDATEEEEEE

ok atually it had been 4 months! i accidently skipped page 4 when i was looking through this. hahaha... sooo according to this they are approximately 19 months old, which is about right, i think!

a lot had happened since my last update. my hair got really brittle and i notced a lot ofroken hair down the middle of my dreadsnear my temples. i was really worried about it. a few of my dreads got very thin in that area and i had a more than normal amount of soft loose hair that had clearly broken off down the dread somewhere and worked its way out. i felt like one in particular was barely makin it so i cut it about 7 inches down, i'm hoping to let it dread on its own next to the soft hair that goes with it, without the weight of the balled up end, know what i mean? then later maybe sew it back on it the dread is strong enough! i undid it a little it, nice and clean inside!!!!

on that note, i ended up using some cheap suave conditioner on my dreads whenn i noticed the breakage because i was scared it was because my hair was fried. then i went on to using regular shampoo... well i started feeling like major shit about my dreads. theywere looking dull and lifeless. itook a loooooong soak in an all natural cupcake bomb bath, and viola! the spunk was back! the cupcake bomb was basically baking soda and essential oils, with sea salt.... haha. so no more shitty store stuff for me, i shoulda known. :)

click the pics for regular size.... and for updates i missed, see my profile pictures
