Dreadheads and Cats


General Talk

I love cats!!! They are wonderful!!! Lol, sadly though, the closest thing to a cat I have right now is a Chaco golden knee tarantula. You can pet him and hold him... but he's just not much of a cuddler... :/ haha

Yeah, I'll play around with it. I wonder if I could wash in the sink and then wander the house for a bit...or tub it. I'll try to do it longer next time and see what happens.

That's what I do. I rinse my hair with baking soda in the sink, put a shower cap on then a towel to keep it from dripping too much, and wander around for 10-15 minutes. Oh, and I go ahead and prep the vinegar rinse while I'm waiting that way when my time is up, I can just hop in the shower, rinse, apply the vinegar mix, and wash the rest of me while it sets.

Do I wash too much?


Dread Maintenance

I second this! Imo, and I haven't been dreading too long, they seem to lock up like crazy after a shower! So, if your hair is like mine, itmay actually be beneficial!

Fuzz, fuzz, fuzz!!! ...just gotta' vent a little! :)


General Talk

Hey there everybody! I'm about a month into this adventure and HOLY COW!!!! I have a ton of loose hair everywhere. Don't worry, I know it's to be expected with baby, backcombed dreads but I just had to vent to someone/anyone who can relate. I swear, some day I will post pictures of the progress since they're coming along quite nicely imo but that'll have to wait until I can get my laptop working again... it'll be nice to be able to stop lurking and participate more since posting is super slow on my phone!!!Ha, I guess I'm venting in more ways than just one... oh well.Regards!

Congos and Splits: Sectioning issues?


Dread Maintenance

Thanks guys! I guess I just had no idea they could move this much this quickly. Lol, newbie mistake? I check them about once a week - so I guess only a few times so far - and up until now had nothing much going on. Now it's kinda' like... DAMN! Haha, slightly shocking. So yeah... I will let the first one I found joined at the roots grow together just because I want to see it happen! And the others I will go ahead and tear apart.@ SE: I haven't really done anything since I backcombed them in besides seperate them occasionally and I wash about every 2 or 3 days with BS/ACV with teatree and rosemary EO's and sea salt. Oh, and I put them up during the day. I'm not quite sure I get what you're saying... I already sectioned them but from the way they are splitting it's almost like they're rejecting how I sectioned them in the beginning. I will get pix up one of these days but they're small dreads to begin with and they're splitting to TINY little dreads. I kind of figure they'll just do what they want and it will work themselves out but I was just curious if this is how they reject the initial sectioning.Lol, and then all the hair getting eaten up out of one dread and into another like crazy all of the sudden kinda' threw me off! Once again though, much appreciation for the responses!

Congos and Splits: Sectioning issues?


Dread Maintenance

Wow!I'm about 3 weeks into this journey and already my hair is going crazy!!! I have a few baby dreads starting to seperate into tiny little dreadies, I mean TINY little ones. I have a couple on the back of my head that over night joined together from the roots to probably around an inch up and are starting to snake and loop like crazy. Idk if I want to seperate them or just let them go because this is really a fun process to watch... One of these days I will get the pix up as I've been taking them every Fri after starting this hair-did.Anyway, the point of this post is to inquire about all this action going on on my head: two questions.Is my hair rejecting the sectioning? Lol, I pretty much just sectioned by feel and then backcombed.Also, since then I've noticed there are strands (not just a few hairs but many) of hair jumping from one dread to another like halfway down the dreads... do I just rip them or cut them or let them be? I'm just worried I might end up with a real mess if I don't do anything with them. Bad sectioning... I recommend to all those interested in using a mirror when one does this step! :)
