Can dread beads lead to mold?


Introduce Yourself

I'm trying to find out some info on this as well. What's the longest you should leave beads in for?

dreaducation, comprehensive guide to all things dready


Dreading Methods

I've had mine for about a year now (did twist and rip, and then natural method). I just sleep on them. This means that some fat ones at the back are flat rather than round, but I don't wear a bandanna or anything to bed. If a bead on my of my dreads is digging into me, I just throw that one to the side.

And I found that using baking/bicarb soda for the first few months of natural method quite difficult, because it wasn't knotty and couldn't soak as easily. But it's gotten easier in the last few months (also been doing saltwater rinses which helps them become dready).

Dreading Methods

Yeah I did twist and rip (now at one month! - I really should post photos soon) and it's come apart a bit at the roots and the ends. I fix up some ends every couple of days but mostly I'm just letting my dreads do their own thing. You can choose whichever method you want, but twist and rip didn't hurt at all, and I think it's less damaging than backcombing.
