Member Journals and Timelines

personally i wouldnt consider crocheting them had some bad experiences in the past with crochet needles

the frizz gets less with time but never really goes away, its part of having dreadlocks.

you know if you start crocheting you will have a lot of work because the more you crochet the more frizz you will get and therefore you will have to crochet even more and so on...

in july they'll be 20 years and nooo not even close
som e chick claims to have the longest (has thwe official record) at only 7 feet, however in india sadhus often have dresads over 15-25 feet
the real lobngest dread is a thai (or is he korean or vietnamese i forget) guy with a unidread that wass 38 feet years ago when i 1st saw him its gotta be well over 40 feet now
hes held the record fpr "longest hair" forever but there wasnt a longest dread catagory till the 7 footr lady called guiness andf had 1 put in, the sadhus in india never bothered to try for a record because they grow em strictly for spiritual reasons not for recognition

i honestly dont know

but i found that mature dreads grow much faster than new dreads because new dreads always shrink while they tighten up

plus it all depends on youre natural hair growth speed

Nice! It only took a half a year for them to grow that much? Ive had mine 3 months and I want to get them to shoulder length, how long do you think that will take?

Thin hair Question


Dreading Methods

I also would say that it isnt necasarry,

but i think that starting with braids can be very effective not necesarly for thr knotting but i think that with braiding you can control better the sections of your dreads.

My little sister sometimes makes cornroes (not sure if i wrote it right) in the summer and she leves them like the whole summer and in the end she gets a few pretty neat and nice sectioned dreads but she always combs or cut them out when they are too knotted.

what i was saying is that it also can be a method to start dreads and i think you should try it because as far as i know we have very few to no reports on this site of ppl. who started their dreads this way.

It would be interesting to see how it turns out and how well it works because we have informations about nearly every method how to start dreads but not about this one.

so i would say do it, could be a cool experience :-)

the thing that makes crocheting "dangerous" for dreads is that in the beginning the do look really neat , and it takes a long time before you can see any damage.

this for example is a pic of when i began to crochet them:



soaringeagle said:

they look the best of all in the last picture and by best that includes neatest its funny that all the work to make em look neat didnt work but doing nothing and they look amazing

during the crochet period the ends look way thicker then the roots too

couple more years of that abuse and u might have lost a couple

crocheting is a vicious circle

because if you start crocheting they will look great very fast, therefore the temptaion is really big, but with the time you will need more and more crocheting to repair the frizz caused by the broken hair and the circle repeats itself.

Notice the third pic. with the red jumper, there i have like crazy loose hair thats all the hair that breaks out when you crochet

then i just left them alone and they simply formed new dreads , notice how much more dreads i have got on the last pictures than on the second?

so never ever fall to the temptaion of crocheting :D

to bekki: i think patience is everything dreads dont come over night you have to keep in mind that between the first and the last picture there are probably 4-5 years (cant remember when i took the first one)

thanks craig

dont worry they will get longer with time

but i think the fact that you surf weekly will make them become mature very fast.

I envy you because i like surfing thought only longboardin because i suck at it, i wish i could go surfing every week

but the sea is too far away

anyway thanks
