they could be sued very healily, fined, and possibly even face charges if they did

and trust me..any job at all will accept the dreads

tresseme will prevent it from dreading and cause buildup

the liquid will make your whole head dread ..just that easy the bars are better if you don't want iit all to dread fast

Hello everyone


Introduce Yourself

yes take out the band! they can cause a dozen serious issues in under a week! they should never be used

yes it will dread to 1/2 an inch frm the scalp..but takes time

you should never have cut it it would have been just fine

just leave bands off separate so the rest f your hairs not sucked into it

or

let it all dread

Size


General Questions

well.. rainbow08wyoming103.JPGwhen mine were 18 years in most were pretty thin. the reason was i separated often, cause my 1st set, had formed as a neck pillow (short wide beavertail that fit right under my neck) and, 2 horns on top

it wasn't just 3 dread, there were 4 or 5 other lil ones  but most pulled into those 3

this time i separated often so i had 1 or 3 thick (1 inch) and over 70 thin.. at 1 point found 1 that was  1 mm x 2 mm and that was 3 thinner dreads congaed. 

at the time this picture was taken i had been using the baking soda (regret ever suggesting that)  and the ends were getting lost often, i thought from dragging on the ground. well it was the baking soda that made them weak

long story short i stopped separating, so when the hair at my head reached the ground it would be stronger. as many as 6 thin ones joined into thicker ones.. but still always new dreads are born.. 

dont worry about the sizes as long as they don't get too thick (that  where trouble starts) after they mature and thicken you can always let them congo

my best friend is on here @chevelle-trant hers i watched start in the woods as whispy whimpy lil tangles and now they are thick  as can be.. they will thicken just from dreading   but if you still want them thicker after they are good and mature simply don't separate 2 thin ones and hey join together

newbie after some advice


General Questions

well im not average and can spot 1 crochet use 3 years later (typically but not always) 

to start over just to tnr..i'd say no. either tnr or crochet will take time to read  and either will dread and be fine

if you were going to start over the only reason id rcommend it is if you felt strongly about going the natural route

in your research how often did you hear people saying just stop combing and it would dread?

thats the problem. nobody is aware that dreads are the natural state of hair, or that this is what happens from just camping a few weeks

rainbow08wyoming103.JPG.jpgthey don't tell you that stuff like tnr, or crochet is unnecessary entirely. nor do they tell you how rewarding it is to simply let it dread. they don't tell you how you might feel like you cheated by using a starter method

they do demonize the natural method though claiming it looks horrible for years, claiming that you wont see dreads for 4 years, and claim they are "shitlocks"

they push more aggressive methods that require "pro" maintenance and "installation"

they don't want you to be aware of free and easy methods, and especially don't want you to know that dreads require nothing at all

I have never done a thing to mine

now.. why i say that starting over  should only be considered if you want to go natural:

the crochet damage is already done combing out will only add more (slightly)

tnr or crochet 4 years from now will look very similar

the main reason to start over isn't cause you choose the wrong starter method but cause you choose a starter method at all

so, your choice is between starting over (and letting it go)

or

continuing on with or without maintenance (without is the only choice to make)

we call that "natural surrender' starting off with an unnatural method then surrendering to the natural process

no i would not try tightening anything for now

General Questions

they dont look as bad as most crocheted dreads they look extra frizzy which is typical in crochet recovery (broken hairs pop out everywhere) typical crochet dreads are too stiff to dread at all for 6 months then 3 years later can still spot the stiffness..

your in luck they dont look super tight or stiff! DO NOT GO BACK! just leave them, hope they loosen more .. they will. and they will dread fine

will take time though

most importantly DO NOT GO BACK
