Who else had/has to deal with people telling them they should get their dreads done "properly"?


General Talk

As soon as i did mine, my brother and sister magically became experts on the subject. Year and a bit later they still say it once in a while.

Partial Dreading


Dread Maintenance

Well here i am with this conundrum again... :P

Went back to BS ACV wash, but ran out so i went out in search of dr bronners but couldnt find it. So i ended up coming home with Neutrogena anti-residue shampoo. But in my two tries of it, my undreaded half of my hair feels/looks more undreaded. I never thought of it till i came back and re-read this but would diluting it work? or should i just find something else again?

Attached a pic that shows the half-dreading is still there

And on a side note once i get to dreadlockssite.com/main it goes weird on my Firefox browser. Screen goes white and looks like its trying to load or redirect me (bottom saystransferringdata from tag.admeld.com...)

Partial Dreading


Dread Maintenance

I wash about every 3 days.

Well i suppose we've isolated 1 possible culprit so i guess i'll make a better effort to find a better shampoo or go back to the BS ACV wash. Hopefully this gets it to look good by the time they're 1 year old

Partial Dreading


Dread Maintenance

For the first couple of months i did the BS ACV wash, but due to a bit of laziness if been using quite small portions of whatever shampoo we have :P I realized could be a reason of slowing the process, but with the small amount i use i also assume that it couldnt inhibit the progress THAT much. Have you heard of shampoo causing that much of a problem? My only doubt about that is that the parts that are dreaded and quite tight.

Other then that i almost never put my hair up or wear hats or anything or even touch it much aside from separating.

I attached 1 pic, its also on my profile along with another taken at the same time. Its probably closer to 9 months then the 8 written.

EDIT: just wanna add that if not using enough shampoo isnt the problem probably cause i dont have an issue with oily hair

Partial Dreading


Dread Maintenance

Heres my little issue, my dreads are coming up on 10 months soon, but the all of them aren't dreaded by halfway. What i mean by that is my roots are all good and pretty solidly dreaded, but they're only dreaded for a few inches alot of them. My dreads are about 12" long but typically only have 3-6" well dreaded, is that normal for their age or should i consider things like the sea salt sprays?

much easier when wet, or can tie a string around the tip and guide it in through that

I need opinions please.


Dreading Methods

Dont feel bad about doing TnR, compared to natural its mostly just choosing how your hair sections. And you see the progression better, since using a starter method its like a lie XD. Good luck and much patience

MY DREADS JUST WON'T DREAD!


General Questions

Sucks to see your still having issues, i think we both started out original sets like a month apart. Although im interested in what every1 says about this because i think i have about 1/2 +my length undreaded too. Goodluck in your patience ;)

new dreads


Dread Maintenance

frizzyness should start to tame within a few days. But remember they will come loose before they tighten so there is a chance of them completely falling out, however dont redo them. Starter method only. Good luck, have lots of patients :D
