Dread update: 2months hair is still wet


Member Journals and Timelines

if your worried about flatness get a tam to sleep in and wear around; having your locks up in a tam allows them the freedom to move around and create knots, and lets for them to be in ways that they normally would not and helps get loose hair and stuff like on the top of your head to knot up. i have a basket hat from knotty boy from a couple years back and i've lived in that thing for days at a times

my hair is fine straight and silky


Dreading Methods

I would try washing with just baking soda, me personally, I have nothing but trouble using bronners, and stop trying to do so much to force things to happen, i went with out brushing for 3 months or so before doing tnr, and a good portion of it fell out and came back together, just need to have the patience to let it do what its going to do

how to make my dreads longer!


Introduce Yourself

backcombing mashes your hair down, and it will only get shorter as they mature, as the knots form, and get tighter, usually meaning your locks will get shorter, and skinnier, before they get longer or fatter, but keeping them clean and washing often might speed the process up a little bit, but as with everything else, all things comes with time and patience

What do you think ???


Introduce Yourself

he has a few songs i can dig but i tried to listen to, i think the song he has out is "la la la", it isn't my thing, he is doing with a fakeJamaican accent, and saying he is the reincarnate ofMarley,little bit of an ego huh? he need to let that go, he does not for peace and love or for good and to bring together, he does for self and for greed, to swell his pockets and his bank accounts

Dreadlock Wigs???? (how to make or buy)...realistic


General Talk

outside of going to a wigmaker and paying them, all that I could think of would be a dread fall those cyber goth kids are into, most are made of synthetic materials from what i've seen, but there are some people who get crazy with it at places like vampirefreaks.com you might be able to find someone on there who makes falls and could do something that looks natural maybe.

Introduce Yourself

eh, i've used knotty boy bar soap and loved it so i wouldn't demonize it, your hair is short, it is going to get loose and lots if not most of the dreads will fall out or loosen. you need to keep in mind that dreads generally have a good 1-2" of loose hair at the roots that has/will not dread, that means that if you have 4 inch dreads, it is safe to assume that at least half that will be undreaded for some time

your best bet is to use a bs rinse, using bar soaps or anything that may require being lathered or scrubbed is going to be rough on new dreads.

Introduce Yourself

your hair looks super short and from experience, shorter dreads are hard to keep together, your best bet is to put on a tam and stop looking at them or you'll end up trying to "fix" them or combing them out. just chill and let'em go with the flow

dealing with ignorance


General Talk

i don't deal with them, last time i saw my mom's side of the family i was flipping them off telling them to go fuck themselves, i don't need my daughter exposed to hateful racists who stereotype and talk about people behind there back like a bunch of children and i told my dad's side what i really thought about them, there was a lot more to it than that but long story short my christmas has been smooth sailing the last 2 years since i removed them from my life and i have no regrets, their just bad people regardless of relation and i wouldn't be bothered with them if we weren't related so why should they matter to me simply because they are?

they say blood is thicker than water, and i guess thats true because the waves in my life will always calm and troubles get washed down stream in time, but the blood was bad and all it wanted to do was boil.

dreads from braiding


Dreading Methods

you can start your dreads via braids, but it may take a bit of time; i know a girl who started hers that way and said she rubbed the outside of them to cause the loose hairs to knot, i'm not really sure of the specifics but they look decent, although thin, and they may always look like braids.all the other shit is just though man, you don't want glue in your hair that's just silly, and interlocking/root flipping is just terrible, and if you don't believe anyone here, you can read any number of dready sites and they will tell you the same i'm sure, get up dread up on live journal and dreadlocktruth both have additional info and every site i have ever looked at says do not root flip/interlock, and products are bad, be it wax, lock peppa, honey or super glue, if it's sticky, you don't want it in your hairalso, me and my friends have used glue and shit in out hair back in the day and it's nightmare man, a friend of mine used wood glue and he couldn't get it out so he had to sleep on the side on the side of his head because he was afraid it would make his hawk break.
