Dreading Methods

This may be an odd question, but how do i know if something is wool? neither tag says anything. pics attached of a sweater and a hat.

Whenever they are starting to eat each other at the roots (unless you want them to congo). Check them once or twice a week, or after every wash.

how often should i seperate them?

They do look quite twisted, but no worries, they're still babies and will sort themselves out with time. Just wash & separate as SE said and they'll turn out great!

They were started in a terrible way, someone tried some odd way of twisting and backcombing and ripping, so i let them just fall out and now im just not touching them, i just dont want them to snake together and end up with a megadread

How did you start them? They look totally normal for only 1 month... you've got defined sections and some tangles happening, which is great. That's all really you can hope for in the first few weeks. :-)

From a "loctician" to all natural


Saved Dreads Success Stories

Everythin seems to be loosening up. How should I sleep? With nothing on my head? Washed with dr bronners with a stocking on my head, feel like I messed up them.

Saved Dreads Success Stories

Gone through a lot of changes. a lot of things have loosened up, almost completely. Im worried about it being completely natural because I would rather not have one big knot. I do section about once a week but again its only been 3 weeks. pics attached. Just washed it today also, so I had alot of untangling.

loctician dread disaster (yet again)


Dreading Methods

I really do appreciate it guys, and they already are looking and feeling much much better. Attached is a pic. I will continue to keep em up in my wool hat and just make sure they dont jump into eachother. I was hearing salt water sprayed in helps too?
