is this normal?
they look fine for a month in though the sections are a lil indistinct so its hard to tell the sizes
how big are te sections at the roots
1 what are you washing with
2 are you towel drying
3 do not use hair ties use your dreads or nothing
4 some sections look pretty big/
5 don't change your life to dread dread to change your life. it doesn't matter if it takes 8 months or 18 but to change what you enjoy doing simply to help it dread is really not understanding the why of dreads, your not trying to achieve a look but a freedom a lifestyle
1 try the dreadlockshamp.com liquid it will help thm dread faster. carefully scrub the roots then rinse through.. do not towel dry that will unknot them in a hurry
2 dont tie them back or up at all unles you absolutely must and then use your dreads themselves
3 run run run if thats what you enjoy (though competition shouldn't be the point of being healthy and atie don't overexert youself as if you got to win just run or lift if yu feel you want t.. i don't know why youd feel like you have to unless your ot of shape and need to get into shape
4 relax your hairs dreading tnr often loosens and falls apart
if yu washwith the right shampoo and don't towel dry..it wil dread..maye not fast ..but then again maybe it will
running will not hurt and if they are left down to move freely it will help
ask her if she thinks your not human or something.
explain that iif your human and have hair that grows (as apposed to fur) it will dread.
the only wrong hair type for dreads is fur that never grows long enough to dread.
now fur will dread as any dog groomer will tell you. ..poodles dread relatively short due to the texture. then there are mules and dog breeds and other animals with longer fur that dreads regardless of texture.
if your hair or fur is over 6 inches it sure will dread
in summer i use cold for whole wash in winter i use 'not too cold' for wash and cold rinse.
its not exactly warm nor cold either..typically 2-4 degrees above or below the room temp
shivering in the showers not good so i keep it just warm enough to not be too cold
