Sectioning and Flat Roots - 2 week old dreads


Dreading Methods

Very relieving! Thanks.They aren't becoming one big dread, they're all pretty separate. I have some lose hairs, but not many, that attempt to combine some of my dreads to one another, but I separate them all because I'd rather not have congos atm.

Sectioning and Flat Roots - 2 week old dreads


Dreading Methods

Well, my dreadlocks are two weeks old now. I absolutely love them, but I have a couple of questions! Does sectioning really matter? I sectioned mine, but very randomly because I wanted all different sizes. And now it seems, because of my strange sections, the roots are growing in very flat and flop in different directions. It doesn't bother me, but I'm worried it might become a problem later. My question is-- will it? None cross over each other or anything, they are all apart from one another; not crisscrossed.

Introduce Yourself

Ahh, thank you so much for your answers and opinions. You two have eased my mind :) I'll certainly have to get a trim because my ends are my only big problem at the moment. Seems like my hair has really rebounded from all the damage, but to be safe I may give it another half a month to a month of healing time.I think I shall gently do tnr, since that's how my first dread was done and it worked pretty well. Definitely won't use a crochet hook! I did a couple times and noticed that it made it a bit thinner on the end, lesson learned with that.

Introduce Yourself

I shall start by introducing myself, I'm Alexandra and I currently have one dread...yes, one. But that gets me to the advice part! I only have one dread because 1. all of my hair is pink and 2. because it's slightly damaged from the bleaching from black to really light blonde to pink. It's been a little over a month since I dyed my hair, and actually it's pretty soft now, no longer frizzy, though I do have quite a collection of split ends. Anyway I did my first dread a couple weeks ago, as a sort of experiment to see what it would look like and how my hair would handle it after being chemically burned. So far so good... though a bit frizzy with broken hair and sort of dry but I'm taking care of the dryness with aloe (I've heard that's good). I really am keen on a full head of dreads, but I'm very hesitant after all the harm my hair has thus far endured. Gradually my hair is getting stronger because I've been using some great products, and having pinkish-red dreads wouldn't bother me, I think they'd look rad. But, is it unwise to start dreads with slightly damaged hair? I've read that it is. I'd like some more input though

Hope I made some sense... and placed this in the rightcategory? I'm shit with forums :')
