Stupid me


General Talk

But the thing is it didn't just loosen it completely shifted back to a fro with no distinction save a few lumpy bits in the back I realize that my act of shaving was a bit over board but at least it gives me time to reflect and research before I decide to re-do. Natural neglect is definately not the route I'd like to take I will admit that I'm going for a much more commercial look to them but that's the way that I like them. It seemed different the first time I had dreads because my hair was so long and by memory so much easier. Maybe the patience of waiting for my hair to grow back will help my patience to allow natural locking

Yea I know but is frustrating. They were doing fine and holding for great with the loose wrapped elastics but everybody keeps saying that they would ruin my dreads and just now I was talking to a my sis new bf and he still has his original elastics On his from 9 months ago with great results

So I took some advice and removed my rubberbands and watched every twist and tangle poof right back to my natural fro. So out of anger I just shaved my head baby bottom smooth. So I suppose I'll be back in a month or 3 when my hair is back. Until then I guess

Does long hair lock faster?


General Questions

Lol idk if I'm just being insecure or what but I'm not used to short hair much less short dreads. I guess that's why this is not just a new hair style but an inner spiritual journey. Patience and love will have to persevere to see this through..... Ugh I hate being patient

there gonna poof when you wash them until they really start locking up you can try to spry some sea salt on them that might help them lock up a bit faster

Nah u good sweetie it's just the last time I had dreads it was different cuz I got them done in a shop and my hair was already about 2 1/2 feet long lol

Lu A said:

ok, i kinda feel like I'm doggin you now cause I already replied to you lol

anyway, long hair does lock a lot faster, but short hair shrinks less. This is important for you because you want that uniform look, and shrinkage will cause curls and loops and zigzags all over the place. I rocked the fro for a long time, and now I'm dreading so the loops and stuff don't bother me, but if you want that uniform perfectionist look you were talkin about, you'll want to start short.

Dreading Methods

Not at all I'm just a perfectionist lol

Lu A said:
SE is right. If all your sections are the same size, the dreads will be too. Just let em do their thing and don't retwist unless they fall apart completely. I think if you can avoid overtwisting in the beginning (this is just my theory of course) you can avoid over twisting all together because you won't be in that mindset, and over twisting will result in thinning and breakage. you definitely don't want that, right?

Dreading Methods

Very similar in shape and size and I want the section to hold

soaringeagle said:
