A knotty mess


Help! Save My Dreads

Okay so, I've had dreads for a year now. We backcombed them in, but never actually finished. >> Weird, I know. But its kind of a painful process. Most of my hair is dreaded, but the underneath that was never finished has become a huge rats nest. :( I'm not sure what to do. I tried to comb it out, but the brush got stuck in my hair. I think its impossible. Is there anyway I can like cut it apart and just let it become natural dreads or something? Because pulling it apart hurts so bad, and brushing isnt going very well either.

lice, alcohol, and dreads


Dread Maintenance

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I just poured a bottle of alcohol on my head. It didn't burn at all, so I dont think I had the buggys. A couple of my friends got them, and I've been itchy for a while so I thought I probably had them as well. Will the alcohol hurt my dreads?

He says I should start all over


Dreading Methods

The he I am talking about is my bestfran/baby daddy. haha. He's had a couple sets of dreads, but lost them to rehab. Lol. I let him take over the back because it was mostly just loose hair anyways. I guess the reason he said they would look bad in the long run was because they were growing together like everyday, and some of them had chunks of hair from inches away from where the dread actually was. haha. He ended up doing a lot more than what I said was okay to do, and left me with this mess of braids, loose hair, and dreads so right now I'm kind of irritated and doing them myself based on the sections he set up for himself. He had to go back because he was only home for the weekend. I guess I really don't mind though. He's really wanted to help me make them from the beginning. He means well, but I'm sad that some of them are gone. Q_Q

Dreading Methods

When I made my dreads initially I didn't bother proper sectioning. I wasn't going for a uniform look, so it seemed like a silly and bothersome thing to do. I think the dreads on either side of my head look pretty great, but he claims that they wont look good in the long run. I'm down with him redoing the back of my head because it's a huge mess of undreaded hair and congos and he says proper sectioning will help me in the long run.

So what do you guys think. Is sectioning dreads really THAT important, and are my babies doomed to be ugly?

Hello dreadbuddies!


Introduce Yourself

Don't be scurred! Dread up that head! They'll fall apart, form odd shapes, and go through awkward stages. You just have to be ready to commit to the tiny baby locs.

h8 my dreads


Dread Maintenance

I know it's only been five lonnnnng months, but what the hell are these fuzzy bastards.
Is my hair just going through an awkward stage, or is it just the way I'm washing it? They always look a mess after I wash them lately. I try to be gentle and just pay attention to my scalp, but no matter what they turn into this fuzzy loose mess that only looks better after a good spray of salt water and some palm rolling while they are wet. I know palm rolling isn't good for much, but it makes my locs look better for a short period of time.I was hoping for semi locked dreads by six months, but it's looking to be more like a year before they actually resemble locs and not loose clumps of wavy hair.

Would it be possible to wash my hair with salt water?

combining dreads


Dread Maintenance

I have two that I'd like to join together. For now I have them sort of twisted together with a bead on it to keep it together, but will keeping them like this make them dread in the long term?

Also, when I backcombed my hair I put a split in it. Is there any way to reverse this or are my dreads going to grow this way forever?

Mild dandruff and frizz are my two problems


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

When I put salt water on my dreads it really takes care of the frizzys, and makes them feel tighter.

Aloe Vera


Dread Maintenance

I have a plant, so what do I just pick off a piece and start putting the gel on my dreads?
