My dreads are a year and almost 3 months now and I'm really starting to see a lot more loose hairs then I used to have. Is this common for 1 year dreads? They look messier and I am just curious when will the loose hairs start to dread and when will my hair look more like dreadlocks and not a big ball of mess? Also what could I do to make them look nicer?Thanks :)See More

Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Started with backcombing and palm rolling, now I'm just sort of letting them do their own thing and see what happens. letting a few congo trying to go from 70 to 30-40 dreads.

Accepting my dreads for who they are

Posted on July 26, 2011 at 4:30am 5 Comments

For four months of my dreading process I wore synthetic dreadlocks in my hair to make my hair appear longer instead of doing the right thing; what I should've done from the start... accept my short dreads for what they were. I feel as if by wearing those synthetic dreadlocks I've missed out on the growth of my…

Hi Tessa, no, my name is just Tess, even though I have the same problem with people calling me Tessa.  Thank you!

thanks for liking my stained glass sublime sun:) I constructed the sun in 1999 and have treated it with care since then. lord have mercy! I love how your dreadies are maturing. keep your heart strong.

Hmm mk. 2 of the pillows I sleep with are silk and the rest are regular. I try to leave my hair down when I sleep cuz I have it up during the day and I'm really trying to keep them from congoing like last time from me having them constantly pulled up in a pony. :P But I'll try it. I'm thinking I might just hemp-wrap the ones in the back becaause that seemed to help the ones I had at the bottom row when I first started them.

I just have the very top/center part of my head to finish. i'm having a really hard time keeping the locs at the back of my head knotted. idk if when i sleep it's rubbing them out or what.

I have feathers and wood, and polymer clay beads to trade... I make crafts too, but I am a lazy crafter.. I wait until something bothers me so much trying to get out before I do it.  :) Let me know what you have and we  can work it out! :)

The last set I tried was t&r but they looked funny like weird braids and the ends wouldn't stay.

At 12:40pm on July 30, 2011, Storm said…

Oh cool. I just started mine the other day with backcombing. I haven't done the top layer of my hair yet though. parting is the hardest part lol
