selling real human dreads? if one puts a price on their dreads then they my friend aren't quite human
i was wondering do anybody have real human dreadlocks for sale
okay good to know. thanks for all the help :)
i love my locks
they shouldnt be all even and uniform and u never ever tighten the roots
When you tighten your roots manually, you are making them thinner and weaker. You need that loose hair at the root to snag and tangle with new growth. If it's not there to tangle, the locks will keep getting thinner and thinner until one day it's too thin and weak to hold the weight of the lock.
Just let them tighten on their own pace. Locks should have a certain amount of messy rats nest hair at the roots for the health of your scalp and locks in general
I had more or less the same problem, the sectioning was bad and would've gotten uncomfortable as the roots tightened, so I ended up splitting them or combing those ones out. I wouldn't advise tightening the dreads at all; they'll tighten naturally. To force it will do more harm than good, and it's pointless because they'll tighten eventually anyway.
Hey everyone. :) Ive had my dreads for about five months and when they were started, they were parted kind of oddly and uneven...(i wasnt the one that started them). My husband has tried to help me separate them and make them look a little better in the back but it only helped a bit. they dont look HORRIBLE, but id prefer them a little more neat...What is the best way to tighten the locks, especially the ones near the root? Thank you.
the answers ..always
its not a how long its a constant thing
they are becoming dreass as we speak are they not? but as you seperate u get loose hairs ..they grow,,they dread..more come
its not like someday your not gonna have any more loose hairs it grow s from your head undreaded then dreads
its a constant process
but there will be far far less loose hairs when mature ..in bout 6-8 more months
On average how long does it take for the lose hairs to find there place in my dreads? I dont want to do nothing to them i want them to naturally find there way but i was wonder how long it usually takes and if they do find there place at all, my dreads are maybe 2 months,
wash 2-3 times a week with the www.dreadlockshampoo.com teatree rosemary bar or baking soda acv teatree and rosemary also stop using hot water
Hey somebody please help me! i've had my dreads for about 6 months and just recently i've started to get really bad dandruff, it's so bad the dandruff is stuck in the roots of my dreads and looks so nasty what can i do to get rid of it?
local garden centers aqnywhere that sellds plants just buy a couple large alowe vera plants and harvest a leaf now and then
on amazon i dunno see if they have lily of the dessert
btw we have an amazon shop here and a small percebtage bought through the dreadlockssite shop suports the site
hey I was wondering if anyone who lives in the UK could help me - I really would like some aloe vera and wanna make sure it's pure. Thus, I don't wanna go buying the first thing i see on amazon of course. Anyone know where to get some?
Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that. I'd try the Aloe first. Brush second. and if all else fails, the razor
or try a soft bristled brush and brush out the tips
dont pay attention to silly ppl on youtube theres alotta newbies tea=ching newbies how to make the mistakes they make
everytime 1 gets the "good idea" to put superglue or rubber cen=ment in their dreads they rush off to make a video about it and convince a dozen others to try it too
Are they tight blunts? I mean, are they so tight that you couldn't get some aloe or olive oil and spend a little while just massaging out what you did? I'd try that first. If it doesn't work, and you'd be willing to give it a try. You could take a razor blade. Make a TINY nick on the tip of a lock, and massage it from there. You shouldn't need to make more than a 2-3mm cut. Just enough to loosen the hair. But I would use that as a last resort. Try the Aloe or olive oil first
