dread Wax: Lesson learned. Not even ONCE. *updated with promised photo*


Dread Maintenance

lol yah it was massive. a lot of my dreads from back then were that big, i only had 14-16 when i started. that big one was ripped into 3 over a year ago (i was ripping it when i took the photo) and now i have like 36 dreads lol. im so glad i ripped them, mine take half the day to dry as it is, i dont even wanna think about having to dry those mammoths i used to have

separating and ripping hairs - over time how many strands actually go to the end of the dread?


Dread Maintenance

was pulling sections apart today and had to break some hairs that were connecting dreads at the roots. it seems i have to do that a lot more recently even after a year. anyway, ive been pondering this for quite a while and i finally decided to ask this on the site.

When you break hairs that connect dreads at roots, ripping the starts of congos, or just separating sections so they dont congo, you're breaking hairs and such. that led me to the question in the title, how many strands are actually going to the tips, and how much of the dread is just broken hair thats dreaded onto hair thats connected to the scalp? after a year (or 20) of separating sections, each hair you break creates a loose hair thats just staying in the dread because its knotted to connected hair.

any ideas/feedback? i'd love to hear some of your responses.

dreads first birthday <3


General Talk

first birthday for my dreadies. woooooooooooo. i finally made it to one year. it feels like its been so long, yet so short of a time. hopefully there will be many many more to come <3

I had to post this somewhere, and i figured the general forum was the best place to do it. I'll have my one year photos up on my timeline in the afternoon

Dread Accessories

i have a bead that my friend's mom gave me as a gift about a year ago. its red clay with a lobster burned onto it and it looks very old. it means a lot to me and ive kept it in most of the year

ripping issues


Help! Save My Dreads

lol. se will yell at me, but i did the scissors thing too. and a knife! lol. but anyway, once dreads start maturing its a nono, but i think if theyre still relatively new and easy to separate without breaking hairs it should be alright.

im very glad people are seeing the light about wax finally. it was a bane to dreads everywhere and sadly even dreads arent spared of viral marketing and destruction for pure profit. SE, you have made a difference in the lives of so many people, and i thank you every day for this site.
