Not sure if this belongs in this thread but here goes...

Partial dreads/partial dreadlocking/what ever you want to call it. In otherwords, having just a couple random dreadlocks in with your natural non-locked hair.

What am I asking? How many of you have done this? Have this? How could you maintain your few dreadies and a whole head of un-locked hair? I have seen a few people with longer hair and poking out here and there  are some matured dreadlocks growing amongst their un-locked hair. Thoughts? Opinions? Tips?

well if u let iot all lock it will but u can maintain unlocked hair just lift the dread out of the way and comb as usual
no need to maintain the dread since dreads require no maintenance ..just maintain around the dreads
but once u got a few u may want more
Mk yea I had thought of doing 'partials' just having maybe 1-3 and maybe over time adding more who knows. I saw it on the lady in charge of a Goddess Temple where I'm at and it sparked my memory; she only has one that I saw. Perhaps I'll do that instead of all over and just go from there.

i think that looks cool!
The three in the front are dreads. I left those in after my first set was combed out.

neat ^^
a freinds thinking of joining and she wants to dread just the underneath hair so the top hair can still be styled in normal undreaded fashions

this wass her inspiration
After your 'partial dreads' mature you can use conditioner like normal and it wont affect the dreads besides it building up inside the dread which washing with baking soda or doing an apple cider vinegar rinse will clear that up.
O.K.- I have a question about this. Doesn't everyone basically start out with partial dreads??? Your hair doesn't all dread at the same time does it? I was kind of wanting to keep a little wispy look with mine. Like maybe my bangs or something and a few around my face. I like that partial "loosely dreaded" look. Can you maintain that???
whispy look like whispy dread tips and loose undreaded bangs?
sure
\typicaly natural dreads might not dread to the tips so tips do stay loose and whispy
also u typicaly will have some hair around the edges especialy bangs and if u keep the bangs trimmed under 6 inches theyre not gonna dread anyways
but even without trimming your gonns always have some loose hairs all over especialy around your hairline ..when it reaches 6 inches it'll form baby dreads but there will always be new loose hairs that come from seperating

I think it looks cool when people have their bangs loose but the rest dreaded. The look I think you are going for you'd need to backcomb your bangs and pretty regularly brush them out, you'd end up killing your hair but it should work. I don't think dread perms ever fully lock up but that's just a statement, not a recommendation.
I would call this just a dreadhawk, well a type of dreadhawk. What I mean by partials is you have regular unlocked hair with a few dreads throughout instead of having your whole head dreaded.
