the whispy tips help them dry faster the loose hairs at the front are the slowest to dread but will alwasys form new dreads..but always have undreaded hair too

sun dry when you can blow when you must

never wear any tams when even the tiniest bi9t damp..

and makes rot knot that will get rid of the mildew

I have not posted in a long time. BUT! I stuck with the natural/neglect process and 3 yrs later have an abundance of unique locks. I believe I have finally broken through the shrinkage and the hair is growing. 47 yrs old and my hair is almost mature. A couple of questions...most of my locks have whispy strands of hair at the ends. Are these to stay? There are some small sections of hair at the front that have not even tried to tangle even with me never running a comb thru them, will they just stay that way? I am not forcing my hair to do anything, just splitting them so they dont all grow together. This process has taught me so much about myself. I don't regret taking the plunge whatsoever. I am not too tech savvy but am going to attempt some uploads of pics, I finally feel like some fruition is happening with this garden of mine and am gratefully glad that I didn't give up. Especially a year ago, strands only a mother could love. Oh, what to do about the mildew smell? How in the world do I get these things dry after a wash? I am scared they are going to turn green! All help appreciated. Thank you for this wonderful site and all of the kind members

Welcome. You may get some criticism in the baby stages of your locks. But those people who judge yo ubecause of your hair quickly surface and let you know that you don't want to be around them.

As they mature more and more people will compliment you on them. You just have to be patient

funny most get cob=ncerned biout neglect dreads being too thick

neglect or any dreads will try to eat other dreads and become massive congos\

seperation will keep them from gertting too big

but warning thick dreads over an inch require special care and can cause alot of issues

dreads look best when a combio of thinck and thin all doferent sizes blending together
