Introductions are in order!


Introduce Yourself

Hey and welcome :). I wouldn't curb the urge to headbang. I really don't think it will hurt them. I love headbanging and it hasn't hurt mine, they are knotting up fast :) Lou x

Alright everyone?


Introduce Yourself

Thanks, its amazing how quick it knots up. Seperation seems to happen after about 3 days then it gets knottier from there :) Never have been a brusher myselfto be honest, the bottom of my hair always use to dread up on a non dready day lol. Good luck on your journey :)

Whats up Lou Lou, your hair is looking pretty nappy lol. Mine is too! I'm only 4 days in tho but the feeling of letting my hair do what it wants after all these years of brushing is amazing!:)

sea salt?


Dread Maintenance

Hey! I know what you mean I've been spraying it in and have to admit it's like dandruff it leaves bits all over my clothes. I am glad I read this now as I shall just be spraying it in before a wash :)

Oh so joyful!!! Some advice!?


Introduce Yourself

I was the same the first couple of days. I twisted and ripped a couple in but now I've left my hair it's only been a week and 2 days and the rest of it is seperated and just as knotty as the t n r bits. Your hair, your choice but it happens way quicker than you expect. Good luck on your dready journey :) x

Dr. Bronners oh how i missed you


Dread Products

I never use to dilute bronners either just use it like shampoo. Peppermints my fav although I use to mix it with the tea tree one. I do believe now I've dreaded back up I should treat myself to a bottle. Think I shall dilute as it makes it last longer then :) x

Wool Roving


Dreading Methods

Would you poke the roving through sections of the hair then? Guess that would get all tangled in be hard to get out in 6 months or so anyways. Wouldn't the roving kinda go weird after keeping it in that long? I had considered making dread falls years back otherwise I haven't got much clue about roving.Lou x

felting u take a felting needle and stab stab stab turning every hair into a shredded mess that mashes together just by being torn up into tattered peices

ok when you felt wool you torn fairly strong wool into an extremely weak felt eith fiber being a milimeter or less long maybe 2..tiny peices.. a strong dread requires unbroken hairs in long peices the longer the stronger

Wool Roving


Dreading Methods

Hey :) not aware of the felting method, would that be braiding it in the way you do synthetic dreads?I'm new to this site but it seems very focused on natural dreads. You may find a goth site helpful as I know a couple people into gothy stuff that use synthetic dreads and may be more aware of the methods. I wasn't aware you could keep then in that long though.Lou :) x
