i'm 24 come from Lincoln, England.. I dont really know what to say
How long have you been dreading?
3 days!
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
My dreading method began 23rd december 2011 on fine european hair and was spread over 3 days using back comb method mixed with a little rip and twist.. seems to be dreading better at the back than the front.

the ends of my back combed hair seem to have knotted some what on some of them. i can feel them getting tighter after my last baking soda rinse. colleagues say theyve deffinitly changed since last week. i feel like progress is being made. i just wish i found this site before hand and done them totally naturally.. but regardless hurray for some changes :)

bit of a un-natty disaster

so 2 weeks and 3 days after initial dreading process (back combed combined tnr, bit of background: i have fine european very slightly wavy hair) i have been using the baking soda rinse combied with sea salt and tea tree every few days, aswell as using sea salt spray plus a little lemon juice.. my dreads have somewhat turned it twists (?) i shall post a pic for reference.. i have paint brush ends and feel as though they are un knotting slowly but surely.. this makes me sad. at the back a…

The start

Posted on December 27, 2011 at 9:52am 0 Comments

Well this is the start of my dread journey, its been 5 days since it began and i am impressed at how the back of my head is knotting at the roots. I have an odd head of hair, the back is of fine - medium thickness but the front is just too damn fine and seems to be loose as a goose. I'm sure perseverance is the key! time will tell..

I have made a shampoo from baking soda, sea salt, a couple of drops of sandal wood and tea tree essential oils. It smells earthy i love it.…

i have the same hair mine is wavy to! i back combed mine in and they kind of fell out a bit one thing i did to stop the ends from coming out is pinch the end three fingers and rubbed them on the palm of my other hand in a clock way motion! this could stop the ends coming out a little! but they will get worse before they get better the best advice i can give you is keep them clean i was told to wash them every 4 days i use a soap called dreadhead hq! that is all i ever put in my hair! and a bit of advice i can give is what ever you do don't go any were  near them with a crochet hook i did this and it set me well back like 6 months! is there anything else u would like to know? and its always nice to meed a dreaddy from the uk what end u from? i'm from essex way!
