Need Help/Advice on Separation!!


Dread Maintenance

Completely normal! Just make sure you keep separating so they don't make congos unless u want that look. It's actually healthy for them to be this way, because you scalp is protected by the hair from outside damage, sun etc.

Nicole's Freeform/Neglect Dreadlock Timeline


Member Journals and Timelines

Hellllooo fellow dread folk! For the past 5 or 6 months (how long I've not been combing), I have just been uploading pics of my progress, but I always wanted to make an actual timeline post! So I finally decided to get around to doing that lol. I'll probably just post my progress on here from now on! :D

So here is the back of my hair at about 1 week. Not a great picture, but you can start to see some knotting.

About 1 month in. Can't really see it here but I remember there being at least 2 noticeable dreads beginning.

August was month 2. Lots of noticeable knotting and sectioning.

September was month 3. =)

Month 4!!!! October was kind of a turning point I think.

These pictures were taken toward the end of November. So basically month 5! It feels like it's been much longer with my babies, probably because I'm always playing/touching them hehe. I can't wait to see how much they change in the next 6 months. They have allowed me to be less judgmental and more accepting of not only other people but also of myself!! I am so grateful and happy to be on this journey and to have this website to share it with~ I shall post my 6 month picture at the end of December. Thanks for taking a look at my timeline Love & light to all of you <3

Hey y'all time for the monthly update. Hope everyone is having a good holiday season. :)

Month six:

7 month update woop woooppp :D <3

the side are finally catching up with the back

Sirius Documentary and the Disclosure Project


dready interests

I have heard of this documentary, but have yet to see it. There's a similar one called Thrive which I would recommend if you liked Sirius. :) It has to do with energy as well.

crochet dreads recovery Need help and advise


General Questions

Hey Rustdust. Loose hair is normal to have. It's actually healthy. But you probably have so many because you have crocheted your dreads. The crotchet hook literally breaks the hair causing them to stick out. It's very damaging and you should not do that anymore. It can take a while to recover from it tho.

You can try a sea salt spray to try and suck in more of the loose hairs. Just mix some sea salt with water and spray on hair a few hours before a shower. I'm not sure the exact ratio but if you go searching on this site you are sure to find it. There's a search bar in the top left corner. You can learn more about crotchet hook and why they're bad here too. There's so much to learn from this site! I encourage you to learn as much as possible because they're are so many misconceptions about dreads/maintenance out there that so many people like you have made the mistake of using wax and crotchet hooks.

The best advice I can give is stop doing maintenance! Honestly it is a waste of money, time and it damages dreads! Hair will dread on its own, and even faster as a matter of fact. All you have to do is wash and separate when dreads want to combine.

Good luck on getting the wax out. Hope I could help ya. Peace
