"Thanks SE, for your support and advice time and time again! I'll be leaving my dreads alone (besides trying to keep the congo-ing ones separated...) and befriend Patience for the next few months, see where it takes me.... thank you :)"
"Hi, i'm quite new 2 this site but an old hand at dreading, to needle felt the ends of your dreads is fine, it will fold them in beaut, doing felting near roots is risky but i've done it on ends & no problem. I only say this from real…"
Hi there, I have wanted dreads for years but I never felt fully ready for it, or sure of myself even, until now. I am a bit nervous but for the most part I want to have fun with this experience, and hope it turns out positively. My second push towards dreads is just that I am so sick of having to prep my hair ALL the time (such a hassle!) and boost it with stuff that I don't want, let alone want to pay for.... So yeah, I am excited to meet you guys, and learn from your experiences, to share my own in turn. <3
How long have you been dreading?
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Hi, i'm quite new 2 this site but an old hand at dreading, to needle felt the ends of your dreads is fine, it will fold them in beaut, doing felting near roots is risky but i've done it on ends & no problem. I only say this from real experience, I know Soaring Eagle would have a fit if he saw this but I do mean just the ends and not too much, just to get them on there way as i see you do have alot of unlocked ends.
I'm about 2 dread my hair for the 3rd time & am using the twist & rip method as Soaring Eagle suggested, you have enough on your ends 2 try that first, is much better than backcombing.
