How to cut my dreadlocks
i have done twist and rip - several times. They always just end up coming unraveled and falling out Like I said, I really have tried. I even backcombed a few sections but it came unraveled after a few washings too. It is such a disappointment because I thought my hair would be so easy to lock. It is very thick and coarse and wavy. And it's so grown so long over 2 years. I've always had very short hair and this was my first attempt at long hair since high school. As far as the hike goes, it's about a 6 month hike with chances for a real shower and shampoo only about once a week so I feel it will be more sanitary and easier to keep clean and much easier to find TICKS in short hair. I can't imagine trying to look for ticks with dreadlocks, lol. Thanks for the advice on using the oils and conditioners. Best to all of you on your journeys. Wish mine had turned out differently.
