Washing Natty Dreadlocks And Tips For Beginner


Dreading Methods

waddap.. what i did was take a whool sweater on my pillow, and when winter came i went around with a whool tam.. seems to make the har abit tangly but nothing much, whool is cuddly too sleep on anyways though.. salt water really compensates if ur shampoo makes ur hair silky... but i found for me that the smoke from a fire helped more, dryed out the hair... i didnt let the washing thing stop me when it was summer, went too the ocean every day for 1 month, and rinsed my hair afterwards everyday.. noone went completely loose, and this was 3 weeks into my journey.. but it can be abit too much the hair might even break because it gets so dry.. i wash whenever i shower now, wich is like 4 times a week, and i dont care if it slowes the progress abit because i know they will dread up anyways.. i just go out for an hour and let it air dry i dont use the -hair blower- ?....

Washing dreads in the early stages (Question)


Dread Maintenance

i worked down at the beach when my dreads were 2 months old and i took a bath every day for 1 month and rinsed them when was done bathing.. they have dreaded like crazy so i have abused salt water to the limit and it helps.. they did not unravel at all, and all the loose hairs started making new ones as i went with tnr.. clean dreads are healthy dreazzzah

Crochet - Newbie needs advice!


Dreading Methods

fair enough that ur mind is settled.. problem with crochet is that it breaks ur hair more than less, thus meaning u will loose alot of hair so if you decide to undo them and go tnr u will have less hair,, section very well with backcombing and ull get ur scalp exposed.. and also yeh if done by proffs they will most likely look the same.. and taking dreads in and out also makes you loose hair wich is bad mkay

If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

A friend of mine has 6 yr old dreads, made with twist n rip + crochet.. alot of spots in the dreads are hard as stone, most of them looks woven aswell, except new growth.. he also tried to maintain them later with a crochet but quickly realised it was shit.. he lubs hes dreads tho, and they are cool.. but it clearly has damaged the dreads and he would never touch a needle again. Iv done it too its crap.

And as for skillteacher, hes doing exactly what i have done poke poke poke stab to death. He is a huuge problem as hes teaching everyone to poke poke untill the dread is completely broken. That he doesnt realise hes tearing dreads apart is beyond me, as he has prob dreaded 100s of people. But the thing i hate most is that he proclaims that people with straight hair MAAAST maintain dreads for them to be dreads wich is bullshit.

If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

prob turns out good if u do it once.. but if you keep poking at them, you totally break hairs and make them stiff and uncomfy... i destroyed my dreads with a 0.75 hook... i should have figured that poking in relatively tight dreads would lead to disaster i totally blame myself.. when i combed them out alooot of hair was lost.. and i had to trim 5 cm of totally destroyed hair... tho i would never recomend a needle for dreads, the deadliest is to keep poking there.. never do it..

hair is fragile
