no, its not bad, but if its not very effective -- then why bother?
I occasionally palm roll while my dreads are still damp and it does help smooth out some of the lumps and flyaways. It's not totally ineffective. I also do it when some of my dreads are zig zaggy or bent in weird possitions. But once your dreads are dry it doesnt do anything.
ive never done it once i dont see any point
I do it when they're wet just to level out the lumps and bends. Like somone else said, it'll tame frizzies well if you do it lightly with wet hands.
I think it's strange that people even look at this as a maintenance method, I do it when im bored or to help get water out, if you do it aggressively then it will cause damage, (don't believe me, do it to a non blunt tip an you'll grind hairs off)
but just lightly doing it to the body of a lock isn't bad, but if your like trying to start a fire with your hair your gonna cause alot of bad friction and that would be bad.

otherwise it briefly tames the hair,,like for a few mins perhaps, lol

in waxed locks, palm rolling makes them feel like putty. otherwise if you were using a light amount it glues the hairs so it looks like its holding better. in my opinion, I just remember those days.
I love you guys.
lol palm rolling has never hurt my dreads lol, i palm roll my dreads but i dont do it on purpose ill just be sitting there watching tv fiddling with me dreads maybe palm rolling them lol.
I dont see the hype of the debate of palm rolling. Its nothing massive its not a way of making dreads and its just fiddling with them nothing major man lol :P
Oh right lol i never took it as a serious dread method lol, its just something u do when fiddling with ure dreads :)
Today was my first day not palm rolling after my wash, which was always the only time I ever did it. Not only was it easier to not do something, I think they look better than when I do palm roll, when I palm rolled I usually heard a little ripping near the roots as I went down so now I feel like I'm doing right by my dreads. the only benefit I would say is that it dries faster because you are shaking a lot of water out of each dread individually when you roll them. I swear they look better :)
i just shake my head like crazy alot comes out gently
haha omg i just read the post after this then clcked the back button just as i saw that masthairbation and had to come back and see if it said what i thought it said..
and then when i read it i thought u were saying u masterbate to keep your hands bust so u wont play with your hair
i must be tired cause had to read it 3 times ...but i like that term

Oh, yeah...lately I've been making myself not play with my dreads as much as I used to, because I'd just sit there and play around with them all day, lol. Maybe we can call it "mastHAIRbation"..... :-D
Ha ha MastHAIRbation is such a funny visual to me. I honestly think with this topic.. To each is own. Ive gone many days without touching my dreads and lots of days playing with them. Doesnt seem to make too much of a diff lol.
