me N my dyed And bleached dreads
who or whats a XXXTENtACION?
just be you
but yea jack roth does have awesome dreads
going to anyone to "get them done" is just further abuse of your hair.
now you say your a christian and devoted your hair to god?
read up on the nazarite vow
joseph samson, johm the Baptist and yes jesus were nazarites
the diference being some were born nazarites (as in jesus) others became nazarites by vow
those who took the vow were commite for 100 days..minimum but could let go of the vow after.
those born nazarites generally practiced all the tennets of the vow for life
this is how you get dreads that mean something and aren't just expensive immitations
let them start not in a salon but in your soul
do not let metal whether comb nor blade touch your hair. ..this is the exact opposite of the salon way.
simply stop combing stop cutting.. this is the way its done in every religion and every spiritual practice.
the nazarite vow covers other aspects of life besides hair, its a pure devotion to god so they refrain from eating anything like meat, or fish, and any fruit of the vine (fermented or not)
rastarfarians, whos belief are based on the bible as well take it a step further and do not injest any chemicals or even cook in pots that leak chemicals into the food (like aluminum) and are purest when it comes to the body must remain whole ..even if refusing to amputate a toe results in death.
all dreadlocks are a spiritual journey
none more so then those started naturally
none less so ten those paid for and started by force in a salon.
in the end all usually affect you spiritually and you will have profound regrets that you did not start them the natural way
please read all you can here and do not make the salon mistake!
soak in lots of cheap conditioner or olive oil and comb or brush out carefully and gently from the tip up, working only on the last 1/2 inch to inch that's knotted, knowing it will take time. when yiu get to a point that's too hard to progress on, soak it in more conditioner or oil overnight while you work on a diferent dread. even if it takes a lot more time its best to go slow and gently.
when you get to where it was interlocked you'll have to be a ll extra careful picking at it gently
i would try a soft bristled brush even though that will be the slowest option it will cause the lest additional harm. if you make no progress that way try a comb some have simply picked at it with fingers too, or used a fork or knotting needle to pick at the knots
the number of dreads will change over time but 25 is a small number and yes the methods used were horrible, interlocking and crochet are extremely bad
honey was bad and also they should be washed right away! do not worry about looseness do not rebackcomb and absolutely do not interlock
just wash all the stickiness out of them let them loosen up
the faster the crochet loosens the sooner they can dread
tightly crocheted dreads can prevent any dreading at all for 6 monhs and take 3 years to recover from
the ones that were lucky enough to come loose will dread way faster then the ones forced to be too tight
hardness will prevent anything from happening at all.
its essential they get touroughly washed and if possible loosened up
interlocking cannot be recovered from, whats done is done
i would personaaly consider starting over 2 inch dreads are going to be a real problem, taking days to dry with a high probability of mold or mildew forming in them
your hairs perfect for letting it dread naturally (how you get real bob marley dreads) bob marleys dreads were not made by force, but instead by living a humble existence using a rock for a pillow sleeping outside on the ground and not trying to dread, just letting it happen.
big smiles just make everyone happy
well then i bet he has amazing dreads by now
you should have your husband post his dreads too (or is he already on here?)
beautiful! i love them
1 thing if you uploaded the vid direct to the site im trying to fix the converter it converts music but not vids youtube etc works fine
btw your smile makes me smile
glad ya came back
i would stop palm rolling entirely, don't worry about what they do day to day...or at all except to keep them separated,
you never had to start them. they would have started themselves
when you do start them, they tend to go backwards before forwards..loosening so they can knot again
backcombed hair isn't dreaded hair (neither is tnr but pretty sure you backcombed) just like braids aren't dreads but when left aloe long enough to cease being braids they will become dreads.
just leave em be give them time your hair will dread no matter what you do but dreads best, and healthiest when you do nothing but wash
