Failed dread attempt with DreadheadHQ
A couple years ago I finally made the decision to dread. Being excited, I googled "how to dread hair" and was linked to DHHQ. Had me sold within minutes. Busted out my credit card and ordered a dread starter kit along with some shampoo and other accessories. A week later it arrived and I put my friends to work backcombing. It took around 6 hours or so and by the end they looked great! All were mostly tight and I thought I was done. A couple days later I washed my hair and everything fell apart from there. The instant dreadlocks gave me a false sense of security and after the first wash, they looked horrible. I was determined to bring them back so I jumped back on DHHQ and got me some more stuff. Loose hair tool, lock peppa, whatever.. I don't remember exactly but there was a good amount of money spent on useless products. I also started to get a really bad dandruff problem. A year later, there was definate progress but I noticed the dreads starting to thin. I remember trying to "lock" up a dread root and the whole dread came off in my fingers. No pain.. No warning. Over the course of the next couple months, the hair was really showing its stress and I was waking up to dreads on my pillow. So I just cut them off and shaved my head completely. Now its been about 16 months since then and I havent touched my hair except to wash it. The few dreads I have now are so much tighter and stronger and no flakes! I really wish I dreaded them naturally initially but whatever, its all in the past. So what do I think about dread products?
What dread products?
