I already told you what I do previously maybe you dont consider it maintenance, I am not a beautician or an expert of any kind I can only tell you how I am blesswed ...Oh and I also trim them,I dont want it to grow any longer.
Hello no I experience allot of cerebral pressure I really can't tolerate the ripping and when it's wet it's really heavy I tried they are ABL now so I may begin to put them up and cover them with a wrap for comfort I'm gonna figure out how to do that and see if I can tolerate it
Hello I wash them and apply just a tap of gel to the roots it takes about three days to dry.I used to do the rip method but due to a neurological issue I can't tolerate the ripping and that has helped me keep them from joining together and other than that I only use Virgin olive oil as necessary.My hair is very thick and coarse.
oh i've heard about johny the shitlock enthusiast. It actually saddens how many people fall for his rip-offs, i mean, when i decided to dread my hair his website was the first one that came up, but knowing that there's so so much (true) information about dreadlocks out there, i didn't wanna risk loosing two years of hair growth for nothing... i'm surprised nobody complained about his methods yet
Wow, people used to do that? it doesn't really surprise with all the dreadlock misinformation out there... my dad actually thought i needed to use egg yolks in order for my dreads to lock up! needless to say i didn't do it lol
oh no no not at all, i would never be capable of putting peanut butter on my dreads, i just didn't know what to write, sinsce i removed my dreads and peanuts were on my mind at the time lol. I've been lurking around the forum for quite a while now and ran into a thread that i related to and needed to comment on, about discrimination, so i ended up registering. I already changed the "peanuts" thing to my actual dreading method.
I didn't know palm rolling was bad, I did it quite a bit in the beginning. What kind of damage can it cause? I currently only have 3 baby dreads in the back, they're almost a year old, and i don't palm roll them often anymore! I've been planning on sectioning and backcombing the rest , but haven't got around to it. I haven't had my hair cut for over 2 years, right before I had my little one. The last time I did my stylist chopped my single baby dread in half, and I decided I wasn't cutting it again, and that it would someday become dreads!
Yes he is. His dreads are waist length. My current dreads are fully locked and much longer than my first pick here. No need anymore for twisting for anything now. They are continuing to grow and dread on there own. I will be updating pics soon.
