Potential problem?? 1.5 month natural dreads


Dread Maintenance

oh and do you think both of the top ones should be separated or just the 2nd one??

agggh, thought so! it's pretty solid, what's the best way to go about separating it, and so you think just 1/2 it??

OOps, you definitely need separating. A mature dread that size will cause headaches for sure. I've been on my journey for 8 months and still need to separate daily.

dreadlockssite appreciation

hey thanks for the feature SE! I was on a freedom high when I wrote that, I just had to share my excitement and happiness, I couldn't contain it. Ive done a complete 180 on what i thought beautiful dreads were, and I can't wait to see what happens next, hopefully they will fatten up a lot, and I'll get some more dimension to them. I washed them thismorning so those pics are a bit straighter and flatter than after a day in the wind, but I'd really love some beef to them :)

haha so true des..on facebook last week someone asked my advice cause someone put wax in his dreads and because i didnt see it right away this kid who had already ruined 1 set of dreads with wax gave him advice instead he started off saying that he should skip the wax cause he already had to cut a set off due to overwaxing beut then ti[old him to wax after every shower and ppalm roll all day everyday then crochet

i told the kidthat was wrong and both wax and crochet very bad for dreads and the kid that told him to wax went on a rant about neglect dreads always get cut in under 3 months cause they are dirrty etc (word for word from dreadlocks.com) i tried explaining that just the oposites true and that waxy dreads arely last but neglect dreads usualy last longest but he was so brainwashed by those other sites there was no getting through to him

luckily the kid that originaly asked the question did join here and is getting the wax out

So I'm officially just over 1 month in, and I just have to say that I am beyond Happy that I found this site before I did something truly awful to my hair!!

I have wanted dreads for the longest time ( 15 yrs) and have had a set of back combed disasters for about 2 weeks, had synthetic dreads on and off for 2 years, and been told by EVERYBODY to get some beeswax and a crochet needle, and I'll have a set of killer dreads.

It's never sat well with me to do anything to it, as clearly all of those methods are damaging, and I didnt want to do that to my hair, so I never got the dreads I wanted so desperately. I've been told white girls can't have dreads without damaging, waxing, backcombing, and constant maintenance so I gave up the dream. I scoured the web looking at images of white girls with perfect, pencil thin, smooth, silky locs, and dreamed about them constantly............until I stumbled across dre

adlockssite.com and my life was changed in an instant!

I saw images of beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, NATURAL, untamed, loopy, unique dreads. Loose hairs suddenly were beautiful to me, frizz and loops were celebrated as progress, not a problem to be fixed with goop, and all I had to do was throw away my brush! I was hooked. I succumbed to the TnR method only because of excitement, and after years of misinformation I thought you couldn't just donothing.????but after tnr ing most of my hair and letting it go I ended up brushing out due to poor sectioning and letting a lot of them go completely natural, and guess which ones are my favorite? the natural ones are so amazing and I'm completely thrilled with the progress. The natural are so much more mature than the tnr and are only half the age!!

So I just wanted to share the fact that I am so grateful for this site, I am grateful for the community, and all the great advice. I am grateful for the support, and most of all the TRUTH! I used to think that dreads had to be perfect and manicured and identical! but I am now embracing and loving the loops bumps and frizz. I'm loving that they are unique, and they are healthy and they are MINE

also my partner has always hated the idea of dreads as he thought they were dirty and gross, but has always said that it's my head and I can do what I want with it... he has

received a dreaducation, and now loves them...will p0st a photo soon

Much Love xxxxxx and thanks xxxxxxx
