T&R, can't seem to get knots close enough to scalp


Dreading Methods

Loose roots are a good thing. It enables the hair to move around and knot up properly.As your dreads start to mature and form, the loose hair at the roots will become less and less, but it's something you always want.With my first set, I did everything I could to get the dreads starting right from my scalp and regretted it straight away. It was tight, uncomfortable, gave me headaches and made me feel like someone was constantly pulling at my head. I took them out a week later.

bleaching...


Dread Maintenance

I've just bleached my hair over the past few days using this guide. It's fantastic and gets it down to a tee.My dreads feel tighter, stronger and look pretty amazing now too.

Extensions.


Dread Accessories

The extensions will start to dread like your normal hair, but it can take a wee while for you to see any progress. The roughness will also go away and they will start to feel more like part of your hair rather than an extension.Another thing to note is that they won't shrink in length, but may get slightly thinner due to them tightening

Loctician dreads vs natural dreads: my journey and my (strong) opinions


Dreading Methods

I love reading your posts, Crystal. You seem like a very genuine person and that is a rare thing nowadays.As much as I love how my dreads look, I'm like you. I want my hair to be as healthy as it can be and luckily, dreads is apart of that.The soap I use is from a company called Simple. There are a few variations on it, but the one I use is Simple Pure. They don't use anything harmful or destructive and it leaves my dreads feeling like a nice puffy cloud :P

Loctician dreads vs natural dreads: my journey and my (strong) opinions


Dreading Methods

I'm rather disappointed. This post was done in good faith to try and help people form healthy dreadlocks, whether they used a starting method or went freeform, has turned into a stupid debate.I'm tired of looking at discussions on this site for help and finding that it is just full of negativity and people being argumentative for no apparent reason.Anyway, as far as the original post goes:I started my current set of dreads with twist and rip. I wash them every second day with 'Simple' soap after giving them a quick spritz of salt water. I separate once or twice a week, depending on how much they are eating each other.With previous sets of dreads, I backcombed, palm rolled. I even attempted using a crochet hook, but it wasn't for me. I'm truly happy with the locks I now have as I found the right method for me.Everyone is different. Everyones hair is different and in turn, their methods of creating dreadlocks will be different. The good thing about the majority of the people on this forum is they will give whatever kind of information they have on all methods and let the person looking for help find the way that is right for them.

Help! Save My Dreads

I'm absolutely disgusted. For a 'professional' to do this to your hair, it's unreal. These people are being paid to help and guide you, yet leave you with broken, fried hair. I wish you all the best when you phone and hope that something can be done to help salvage some of your hair.I'm so sorry you had to go through all this

Best dreading method to keep them together.


Dreading Methods

As everyone else as stated, there is no such thing as 'instant dreads'. Methods like twist'n'rip or backcombing are only starter methods and both will loosen up, possibly fall apart, shift and move around till knots start to form.Having used both methods, I found that the twist and rip held alot better than backcombing and kept some if the initial length.The best thing to do is get the beeswax out of your hair and start again. Dreads take time to mature and you don't want to have something like wax in your hair hindering your process

Introduce Yourself

Hmm, this is a hard one.On one hand, I want you to go for it. It's your hair and your life. But on the other hand, I agree with Brandon and think you should wait.Dreadlocks are journey and if you choose to go on this journey, you will only be hindered by your disapproving father. Especially if he is threating you.I wish you all the best and hope you one day have the locks you have been dreaming of
