Never Have to Separate- Weird?


Dread Maintenance

Hey Peeps :)I haven't checked in for a while, and have never seen this posted: Is it unusual to NEVER have to separate my dreads?Had very fine straight hair before dreading. Wear it down nearly all the time/ occasionally use a big elastic headband or a normal elastic for a ponytail.Dr. Bronner's every few days, ACV/BS 2-3 times a month. Dreads are tight/fully mature and look sweet. I dread ball someone's when I'm bored, but no root damage or tools. Not greasy or overly dry.I had MAJOR shrinkage for the first 2 years! I lost more than half my length. I have about 120 dreads. Why don't my dreads try to congo?! Just curious :)

Thinking about getting dreads, but I have some questions...


General Questions

My are pencil width, some smaller- I whip my head back and forth (lol) about 10 times still in the shower and wrap in a towel like every girl knows how to do :) No headaches, itchy scalp twice for short period of time. No one states or really cares in my case. Lost more than half my length. Took 2 full years to notice lengthening. My hair is very straight and thin naturally. I have up on "methods" and just let them do their thing...START YOUR DREADS! I haven't regretted it for a second, although I used to stop by here to cry about my shrinkage lololol :)

Any ideas on how to do these styles?


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I like to watch this lady braid her daughters' hair on YouTube. (cutehairstylesforgirls). I think the tutorials are easy to follow. Waterfall fall braids are easy and look great on dreads! :)

natural dreads and work

You can try bobby pins (if they'll fit) or try a cornrow-ish style at where you put your crown area up in elastics-- does not look as girly as that probably sounds lol. :)

Interlocked my dreads


Help! Save My Dreads

I would definitely request a partial refund, but remember that the time the woman spent doing your locs deserves compensation! In the future remember your dreads are free and need no crazy products or maintanence. I don't know about everyone else, but I LOVE seeing young dreadies doing there thing-- post some pics!!!!

I actually used a razor blade-- guess I was feeling daring that day b/c/ I still can't believe I didn't slice my dread right off! :)

This looks way easier to get out then embroidery floss! I made the mistake of knotting each round and had to literally cut out hundreds of little piece of thread. I like the upcycling idea! It doesn't look like it's gonna hold, but nifty temporary lil thing you got there. :)

please help with this frizz ball


Help! Save My Dreads

No, leave them alone! Honestly they look great and anytime you feel self-concious just come on here and everyone will tell you how awesome your dreads look! :) The early days are harder for some people-- believe me, you WILL get over the fuzzy stage and will learn a lot about what you consider as beautiful. Even my prissy sister is now convinced natural crazy dreads are gorgeous-- we have all been there girl; try not to let it consume you :)
