anti-residue SHAMPOOS!


Dread Products

Yeah I just purchased pantene clarifying which says it removes build ups which does what S.E mentioned ... strips residues from hair (greece, product etc I was also wondering if it adds anything after taking greece and products out? Anyone in the uk know of any other non residue shampoo's?

short funky dreads


General Talk

I

know exactly what I'm sayin S.E !!! I said a have dreads FORMING and thats not even over all of my head so I'm pretty positive I'm not really gonna have what I consider dreads until my hair is much much longer and I don't care how its happening.

I do only consider natural/neglect dreads the only way to achieve "true dreads" but I don't want dreads out of religious or spiritual reasons, I just love the look of them, always have. I appreciate what they mean to many people and what they represent but thats not really why I want them. Not for now anyway so so long as I like what I see on my head and I'm comfortable with the way I get them thats all I'm really bothered about.

Shanxon thanks for saying something helpfull ;) Yeah thats something I'm defo considering. I would have to wait for them to mature like you said then shorten them. Prob wouldn't be able to bring myself to cut them though haha. From what I see crochet dreads can be spikey and I'm not sure how they would feel on my head.Comfort plays a big role also.

short funky dreads


General Talk

Is anyone else hear a fan of short funky dreads ??? Don't get me wrong I love long dreads but I've had long hair over half my life so I'm aiming to have short funky dreads 4 - 6 inches. I'm thinking its gonna be almost impossible to achieve this going neglect. I'm 5 months neglect now and have lots of dreads forming in my 5 inch straight hair but I can't see how I'm gonna achieve what I want without crochet because my hair isn't gonna really look like dreads until it gets longer. If I was wanting long dreads I would just continue neglect without a 2nd thought. My progress is great but not that great that it'll produce short dreads. Any thoughts

Crochet Dreads to Natural Dread


Dreading Methods

I put a few crochet dreads in my hair (6) 3 months ago and decided to take them out today. I've only taken 2 out so far and was really suprised as there was hardly any broken hairs !!! No more fell out than I would expect when brushing yr hair for the 1st time in 3 months. Obviously you've had them alot longer so you'd expect more broken. I done them myself and was very carefull not to yank and rip with the hook and obviously when you do them yrself you are sensitive to how hard yr doing them. They were really tight though and took ages to undo. Maybe if done carefuuly by yrself it doesn't have to be extreme damage. I certainly expected far more hairs fallin out but was pleasantly suprised

Crochet Dreads to Natural Dread


Dreading Methods

Have you considered just stopping any maintanance and letting them dread naturally?? Seems a shame breaking more of yr hair by undoing them. I'm sure I made this comment yesterday but it seems to have disappeared !?!? Why would somebody do that??????

Dave isn't that hat yr doing?? letting yr crochet dreads grow out naturally.

The Journey of Dreads


Dreading Methods

with afro hair yr dreads are gonna be pretty neat anyway, just keep them separated if u don't want them to congo and get thick. Thats my opinion anyhow, check out some vids on tube with yr hair type to get a rough idea how they'll turn out. If I had yr hair type I wouldn't even consider any other method but it's yr decission at the end of the day. Good luck
