Human Hair Extensions


By Andrea4, 2012-08-27

Hello All !! New member to the site, but have been reading it for a while now.

So about 2 years ago, I cut my hair and for whatever reasons, I kept it. Today I found it all braided up and smelling like my shampoo from 2 years ago (crazy, right). ANyways, I was thinking about making some extensions from my old hair.

I guess my first question is will it work?? and will it dread? and is it worth it? how to do it and so on?

I found some youtube clips that will help, but I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this that can give me some helpful tips.

In the end, Im sure I'll try it and see how it goes, but I guess I just wanted some personal expert advice !!

Be well All ~~

Dreadlock Timeline-Twist and Rip-Straight/Wavy Hair


By Greg Lokey, 2012-08-27

Ok so I wanted to make a timeline since the ones Ive seen have helped me out so much and gotten me really excited about the whole process.

I wanted to get a bit further before I started posting, but I decided to just get to it.

BEFORE: Pretty old pic but my hair has always been like this


2nd DAY: Really excited!


1 WEEK: At a bbq!

2 WEEKS: You cant really tell how frizzy my head actually is in these hahaha ive been wearing a wool tam to bed everynight and taking a dip in the ocean every couple days.


Ill update again soon!

3 WEEKS OR SO....

Left side

Right side

And I have these little fuzzles forming from loose hairs, I havent messed with them at all, are these baby dreads already???

ABOUT 1 MONTH!!!! Ive finally figured out that im not going to be doing alot of "controlling" and im done trying. Loving having crazy hair all over the place and im starting to get loops and very tight knots!!

Starting to congo in a few place, I think ill just leave them alone and see what happens!

My biggest one right now, its about the size of a crayola marker hahahaa! Its also started to congo with another.

Well thats that! Ill update again in about a month!

Hahaha ok so maybe its been around 7 months now but heres my progress, sorry its a bit hard to see on the count of I had to take them with my webcam.

Wow! I didnt realize how much progress had been made until taking these pictures! Getting there! Ive lost track of time completely... I think its been around 7 months now? Or 8?.... Well around there! Theyve tightened up ALOT at the roots! Lovin it!

My scalp hurts a bit.


By Dee4, 2012-08-25

I washed my dreads yesterday and today I just rinsed with water. Well after about 7 hours later I started feeling slight snagging on my scalp specially on my bangs. I normally wear my dreads back with a pretty loose elastic headband due to work. As soon as I walk out the office I let them loose and sway away with the windows rolled down cruising home. I started feeling around at the root of the one that is bothering me the most and can feel that some hairs are really pulling as I can feel the tension. So what I have been doing is just rubbing the root and my scalpof that one painful dread. I rinse my dreads everyday with plain water due to the fact that I sweat alot. I tried positioning it in a diffrent directions for the past few hours but, it still hurts I have a bout half an inch of undreaded hair at the root. What can I do to relive that snagging feeling I seriously can't stand it anymore and it feels uncomfy :(

How do dreads work?


By Analia Rasta, 2012-08-25

Do they knot from top to bottom or vice versa? for example ...my dreads are 4 months, they'll be 5 months next week! A few of my dreads are getting really knotty in the roots but it's not like spreading down ..the knots aren't spreading down to the bottom. is there a problem? or are they gonna spread eventually? ..Like if I touch the roots, it's super duper hard (that's what she said) ...but then you go down and it's just ..hair

loc reflections: month three


By Beijaflor, 2012-08-22

hi guys! eh um terceiro mes pra mim and i am happy to have made it another month! this month has been topsy turvy. my locs had begun to loosen at one point but now they are compressing more. ive had three dreams (nightmares) of me having my hair in a loose form and that has scared me but i have been staying strong. i look at it as signs of strength and not of weakness because im still loc'd and blessed. at this moment i am at a cleansing detox with a hard water removal shampoo until my hair feels fully clarified. once i am finish with this phase i will return back to my besan. my locs are starting to look like locs at the root or at least forming into locs and this has recently happened within the last week. i also had a nice vacation at the beach last week and the ocean was a big treat for my hair, mind, spirit.. i just loved the beach. well thats it guys, i am enjoying the evolving of my hair and myself as a person. ive never felt more free and excited. until next month guys. :)

My Dreads


By Kyle Adams, 2012-08-21

I just want to thank Ashley Walker for giving me my dreads and spending her whole day doing them. She didn't give up, even when I wanted certain things to be done. I know my hair was weird but I hope it pays off when you see them mature and grow into beautiful pieces of my new self. I needed a big change and you gave it to me. Thank you for that.
