starting over

By Panga, 2014-08-09
Well, it's been a while since I was on here. I ended up combing out my dreads a year and a half ago after 17.5 months of having them. I had trouble with the ends not locking up (5 to 8 inches smooth silky hair at ends). In the end I'm glad I did. I now have strong healthy long hair that's down to my lower back. But I miss the feeling of my babies. I'm toying with the idea of letting my hair dread again, but I don't think I want it all to dread this time. Not sure if I can let my hair naturally dread on the bottom while maintaining my straight hair on top. However I do it, I will need to keep them looking good and professional for my job, but I don't want to cause damage to my hair in case I need to comb them out. Guess we shall see!

1 MONTH <3

By mishay, 2014-08-01

Today is one months since I have had dreadlocks - to be honest even though I have short hair and my locks are really crazy I must say that I am really enjoying this dread journey. I have been adding sea salt and lemon juice to my hair to help it lock faster and I am now washing my hair every four days. - My scalp is adjusting and improving a lot! -My dreads are already starting to tighten which is AMAZING! and I am just really blessed to be able to watch this progress. I also am not using wax.

A couple things I am looking forward to is:

  1. My hair in the back to grow so that I can dread it.
  2. My dreads to get longer so that I might be able to add some extensions
  3. Watching them mature!

I guess that is about it. I will keep you all updated :D

Do over :)

By kaiakai, 2014-07-30

I may get some flack from Soaring Eagle for this, but one month into my new dreads which I started with a mixture of TNR and a little backcombing I was extremely frustrated with how my hair was dreading up. I was losing a lot of length in some areas, and not in others, and I could tell where I had used more backcombing and where I had done more tnr. I was getting a lot of big loops which were driving me crazy!!!! A few of them I liked, but for the most part I was struggling to love my hair. I also couldn't go out with my hair down because it seemed like such a mess.

So... after much deliberation, I finally decided to comb them out & redo them with TNR only. A few years ago I helped a friend of mine comb out her dreads which she had had for YEARS. I didn't think such a thing was possible, but thanks to that experience I realized that if she could comb out 5+ year dreads, then I could manage 1 month dreads :) For the past few days I have been doing them one at a time, and I am happy to say that I love my hair again!!! I redid the spacing in a couple of places, which I am happy about, and I will probably leave a few of the loopy ones in for fun.

I lost a bit of length (and probably weight!) due to combing the loose hairs out and some inevitable breakage at the ends, BUT I feel like my hair is manageable now and that it will dread a bit more evenly.

If I were to do it again? I'd be interested in taking the completely natural journey, but would NOT mix methods again ever.

Hey guys! I've been here many times before over a span if 5/6 years. Ive attempted to dread my hair three times now. But I have finally reached a time in my life that is spiritually awesome and I have found the patience, love a appreciation. I am 1 month into neglect, and the changes are awesome. I will be posting progress pics.

Happy Loops? or bad roots?

By L Sully, 2014-07-29

I know roots are supposed to be loose, and dreads are supposed to get loopy and 'messy'. Especially in the first 6 months.
My question is this... are the loops on my roots (right next to my scalp) a good thing? thanks!

I've been a slacker!

By Kat Richtman, 2014-07-25

I was doing really well tracking my progress, then life came up! :P
Things have been going wonderful here, but very busy! Trying to spend a lot of time outdoors and enjoy the weather before it changes! :D
Today marks the 52nd day of not brushing for me! :D
Lots of little knotty things happening underneath my hair! I don't really do anything to my hair, no palm rolling, I don't even section my hair.
I do brush my bangs, but only because I have to be able to get my hair out of my face by pinning them back and braiding them etc. The rest of my hair is free to do whatever. I may let my bangs dread up after they are longer, but at this point I can't really even tuck them behind my ears. :P

Will try to get some pictures up today! I will also be trying to blog and post pictures more frequently again! I basically wanted to touch base with this community and let everyone know that I am still here and going strong! <3 Lots of love to everyone!
