Wearing a hat at work and starting dreads


By brandis moody, 2013-08-01

About four months ago I brushed out my 1 1/2 year old dreads, they were backcombed and everything went wrong. Even though they weren't the best dreads I feel something missing and want them back more than anything. I want to use the natural/ neglect method but my job requires me to wear a hat about 8hrs a day everyday. Might TNR be n option to help them out? Any advice would be very appreciated!

Is there any hope??


By Amber5, 2013-07-28
Hey guys.. So basically I got my dreads done by crochet and backcombing about a month ago.. I now completely regret this after reading through this site.:(( I won't carry on using the hook but I'm just wondering if they will eventually calm down. At the moment they're looking pretty puffy and really unnatural.. Is there anything I can do to help ? I've read a lot about just leaving naturally formed dreads to do their thing but as far as I've seen crochet dreads are pretty hopeless... Please tell me I'm wrong !

Front versus Back


By Erik Hylan, 2013-07-27

Hey Y'all,

so I was just wondering if it was natural for the back of your head to dread up quicker than the sides and front. because the back of my head has a lot of baby dreads and it makes the back look very short and the front and sides long. is there anything i can do to speed up the front and sides or is it better to just wait it out?

THANKS

Help :( i need advice !


By Graciela Moreno, 2013-07-26

Hello there ! I'm new to all this, just made my account today ....here we go (:
I was wondering if anyone can give me advice !
I've had my dreads for 4 months.. started them myself with rip & tear ...
my roots are growing out and some dreads are splitting at the root.
I'm aware that its just naturally sectioning itself...I'm trying to avoid the crochet hook.
but what can I do to prevent them from splitting :( ?

Update and a Question


By Jaquie Farmer, 2013-07-24
As I've stated before, I had the under half of my hair TnRed and the top I left to go natural. My question/concern is (and it may be me just being paranoid but) where the natural hair meets the TnRs it seems to be matting flat down. I don't want my natural part to dread into the roots of my TnRs if that's even a possibility. The first picture shown has my natural hair pulled forward so you can see the matting/roots. The second picture is with it all down. I'm at a month and 2 weeks tomorrow.

My hair and my stress


By Crystal Miller, 2013-07-22
Craziness lately. My mother is in the hospital with end stage liver disease. It's my intention to donate a part of my liver to save her life. I'm not worried about the surgery, or the long recovery time, or the huge scar I will have. But it seems like the entire universe is against me. It will be a fairly long trip to her hospital in CT, especially with my 1 year old in the back seat. Since my husband has to work ill need to get a rental car. I can't get a rental car until I pay an outstanding ticket I got a while back. I called the court to pay the fine and guess what?! The woman won't be there until tomorrow. Yet another day I have to wait. Then I will just have to hope that the payment goes through so that I can get my rental car the next day. The stress of it all makes me want to pull my hair out!!! Aaaaaah, my hair. It's been 4...5? days since I got rid of my brush and went full neglect. It's messy, and wild, and I love it. It's beautiful chaos amongst the ugly chaos of my life. I love that it is one less thing that I have to worry about. I'm so thankful for this site introducing me to this all natural way. It really is my peace of mind and I'm grateful that it showed up when it did. <3
