Dreadlocks Emotional Journey


Life Issues Facing Dreads

I was in a bad marriage when I begun my first dreadlock journey. My exhusband had dreadlocks when I first met him, and he very much influenced the route I took in my dreadlock care. I didn't ever feel quite right in my first set though, I felt ugly and like I wasn't pulling them off at all.

I did cut off my dreadlocks shortly after I divorced him. For me that was the way to go. I afterwards discovered self-love for the first time ever. Of course, I then started my dreadlocks journey a second time and love every bit of it.

What I'm saying is, I can relate and it's really only something you can answer for yourself. It would be a shame to let him take away your "roots to the world," just because of some ass that didn't recognize the awesomeness that is you.

I hope you soon realize the right path for you and your dreads.

help needed me thinks...


Help! Save My Dreads

I backcombed by dreads also. I would personally take out the bands. It is typical for almost all of the backcombed hair to come undone and it will knot itself up over time. The sections do tend to stay as you had them. It definitely sucks watching all the time you put into them come undone, but they knot up so amazing over the months.

I'm 9 months in now, and they are still reknotting themselves.

Ticks!!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I love being in the woods, but I can't deal with the thought of ticks possibly being in my hair.SE I know you spend a lot of time outdoors. Is there anything to repel ticks, or to make sure they are out of your hair if they have gotten there.My sister and I found four ticks on us yesterday after a hike in the woods. I had my dreads braided, with a bandana on, and a hat, but they could still crawl up my back onto my head.I plan on camping as much as possible now that the weather is nice, so please let me know if there is any way to repel ticks.

No Loops, No Kinks...Thinking About Giving Up


Dreading Methods

I was a backcomber and just after two months, my hair has started to get the loopies. Only a few of my dreads undreaded a bit. I started with the base of my neck and those never unraveled and are locked up super tight. Just to answer you question about how long Andelynn.

Andelynn said:
I also have had the same experience. My hair is very straight and fine (but thick) - silky, you know? Weeks have gone by, no combing, no conditioner or special shampoos - just what was recommended here and got nothing. About 2 weeks ago, I sectioned off my hair and twisted/ripped and backcombed the sections. I just think that with hair like ours, the sections need something to anchor the ends with so the middle areas will start tangling (or something like that). I am really happy with how it turned out - though I must say my head looks like a big hairy mess right now.

Just a question for those who did help their dreads along through the T/R/B methods - how long roughly did it take for the sections to really start tightening up and actually dreading on their own? I am trying not to obsess - hahhaha - but I am curious.

Hang in there, Panterra - I look forward to hearing how things go for you in the future.

how to wrap a dread :)


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I'm not sure what you mean wrapping it. This video shows a wrap though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXUwlqbTzacJust so you know the white specs in your hair are the hair follicle. I don't know if people with neglect method dreadlocks get them, but if you backcombed then you definitely get them.

3 week old dreads, need help with wash!!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I've been washing my hair every two to three days since the first day I backcombed my hair. And accept for maybe two that came partially undone, they haven't come undone at all. Washing helps them lock up better. Scrub a dub.
