My Baby Has Dreads!!


Member Journals and Timelines

She did it without my knowledge. I came to pick him up from church that night and she told me that he let her comb his hair. I told her that we were trying to let it grow natural dread locks, but she didn't understand what those were. So it was a moot point.

My Baby Has Dreads!!


Member Journals and Timelines

As I sit here waiting for my hair to dread, my youngest son has been getting dready. He had his last hair cut in March of 2011 and he has naturally curly hair. He decided that he didn't want hair cuts anymore and since he didn't like people brushing his hair, we decided to toss the comb and let it do it's thing. After 18 months of growth and new dread process, the nursery workers at church decided to comb his hair. I was super pissed that we lost all that progress, but you can't tell sweet old ladies that kind of thing. So two weeks ago, we decided to back-comb and help his hair knot up again. It took us about a week, because he's only 7.5 and neededfrequentbreaks. But I wanted to show y'all his baby dreads. :) I'm super excited about them. :)

So, here's the progress. :)

Before. (Wet)

First few rows done

All but the front done

Pulled back, all done except the bangs

Tonight (October 23, 2012), dread age: 1 week

1 week old dread babies. October 23, 2012 (The back of his head)

What what? She's back?!?!


Introduce Yourself

Thanks SE. :)

I tossed out my comb yesterday, and since I bleached my hair a couple months ago, my hair is quite coarse and knots easily. HOPEFULLY, this time I will grow some great locks. :)

Introduce Yourself

That's right, I am back. After a year of not being here, I am back. I don't have dreads currently and my hair is kinda short, but I will be back on the journey soon, I hope.

Aloe gel on backcombed "dreads"?


Dreading Methods

I thought that might be the case, I'll definitely quit using it. Thanks!

Aloe gel on backcombed "dreads"?


Dreading Methods

I might have done a bit of backcombing... okay there's no "might", I did backcomb. I haven't combed my hair in months and there wasn't a tangle at all, so I just helped it along. I know they will most likely fall out partially or even completely, I'm prepared for that. I'm just curious... I have some gel that a friend mailed me (she didn't like it), its Locksteady Tightening Gel from KnottyBoy. It is aloe based, no wax. I was curious if anyone has any experience with this stuff? I've used it once and it makes my backcombed sections hold together nicely, but it also feels like I've used hair gel on them. They are stiff and "crispy". lol I like how it smells and will end up keeping it whether or not I use it on my dreads is another story though. (I may keep it for my oldest son's mohawk.)

They look great! I have the same hair type as you and this gives me hope. I just backcombed mine in 3 days ago, no wax. I'm excited to see what happens in a few months. :)

Hi there guys


Introduce Yourself

Welcome! Glad you found us!! :) The oils to use are the pure essential oils. You can get them from health food stores or if you prefer, you can order them online. They are notfragranceoils though. The oils I use from time to time are: lavender,rosemary,peppermint, & tea tree and yes, I use them all at the same time... they smell wonderful! :) When I use them (I don't often cause I'm still experimenting with the formulas of my wash), I put a few drops of each into my baking soda/water mixture then I pour it on my hair and let it sit for a while and then rinse with cool water. I don't use the apple cider vinegar rinse that it recommended here because it messes with the PH balance of my scalp too much. I hope that helps! :)
