just catching up


By gabby henault, 2012-11-11

so im at nine and a half months of dreading so far. they are very nice. tightening up so well. i have a few that decided to congo and about 6 new neglect ones forming from myself doing nothing at all to the bangs i had when i first made them. the loose thin hair at the bottom of the back of my head is finally starting to clump together after nine months of sitting there. im pretty excited for my new dreads. i still do not know how many i have because i believe that it is bad luck to count your dreadlocks. i love that my friends find joy in rubbing my scalp for me, it feels so nice lol. i havenot posted a photo in a while and i must be getting on that. i think soon i will take a montage of all or most of my locks individually because that is something i have yet to do.

peace out mann.

Bleached patch


By Tyrik smith, 2012-11-11
As we all see in my pictures I have a bleached section in my hair and it won't twist up can I do the neglect method on it so it will dread then clip off the section in due time ?

Anniversaries


By DreadfulAmenita, 2012-11-11

Today is my 1 month anniversary since I first did tnr. What a fun month it has been! Tomorrow is also my 2 year wedding anniversary with my husband. Yay!

At this point, my babies are really dreading up in some places, and some more than others. I have some hairs that have decided to come loose. The ends are still loose and curly. I stopped re-tnr-ing them after the 2nd week. I was worried they'd come loose, but that hasn't been the case, except for a few in the back. (I'm sure they'll catch up at some point.) I have LOTS of loops and zig-zags, which actually give my hair a very similar look to the curls they once were. I've been alternating Dr. Bronners with Bs/ACV, but honestly at this point I don't have a lot of love for the BS/ACV wash as my hair just seems to be more itchy, dandruffy a day after I do it, and right after I get out of the shower, I get almost hive-like itchy bumps on my face and chest. They go away in 15 minutes, but it's still something I don't look forward to. I'm still not very bold with wearing them completely down in public. I've been using tams but more bandanas at this point. I'm hoping the frizz will tame soon, which is what I'm most self-conscious about.

my dread journey


By emma connell, 2012-11-10

i never had the best of starts with my dreadlock journey.

my hair was very short when i decided that dreads were right for me.

i looked into many methods of how to start my dreading process, but they all had scare stories, and i didn't know anyone who i could turn to for advice.

i finally decided to go to a salon - which were incredibly expensive!!

whilst flicking through the phonebook for the telephone number of the 1 only place inmy region that does it, i phoned a different number - that took me through to a lady trading under a very similar company name.
we spoke on the phone, she was a mobile hairdresser, i also looked at some of her work on the internet. she seemed to know what she was talking about and seemed very convincing and genuine. and was half the price to what the salon was charging! result!!

i booked an appointment for a few weeks later - as she was very busy. i went round to her house. where i started my 4 hours of dreading.
once she had finished they looked fab!!!!! although they were very hard to the touch?? she advised me to wax them a couple times a week.....

within a few days they started to discolour. under closer inspection,- black bits stuck to them :-( this was incredibly noticable as i had bleached my hair beforehand. little did i know is that she used a hair glue to hold my dreads together.

i stuck with it though, knowing that eventually it would all be worth while. and any visable glue and dirt within time vanished. when i felt like my nicely forming dreads needed tidying up, i visited the salon i wished to go to in the first place. i was not going to go back to the mobile woman after the glue incident.

they tightened my roots with a hook, and then smothered in a knotty boys dreading gel? once dry, coated in bee wax. the woman had observed whilst tidying up that glue had been previously used and how bad that was. we discussed the woman who i saw previously, whom they were familiar with and how she had a bad reputation. i left the salon feeling rather happy about my experience. i still was still applying wax on the odd occasion but not very often as i didnt like the way it made them feel.

2 years have passed now, since i have let anyone touch my dreads. they seem much healthier and i am much happier with them now :-) after starting roughly 5 inches long, they are now shoulder lengthish. i tidy them up occasionly with a hook. and seperate them after washing but dont tend to mess with them much anymore. all the advice i seemed o have had re: palm rolling, waxing etc seemed to have done me no good.

only small problem is now is that i am slightly paranoid about what is going on in my dreads, with remaining glue, wax and dandruff build -up etc. i dont wanna have to cut my dreads off!!!!

if anyone has any advise i would love to hear from you! I am in the U.K and there seems to be very limited products, advise or tips here!!!!!!!

My Wax B Gone came in the mail today!


By Star Gryphon, 2012-11-08

I was surprised it came so quickly!

I ordered the wax b gone and the lock magic locking gel just a few days ago! They even threw in a free sample of the dragon's blood liquid shampoo!

Motherhood is a busy job...but I should get to use them in the next few days!

I'll update to let you know what happens and what I think! gonna use a few buckets and give the ends real good deep cleaning! Since that's the part that got waxed that one time close to 5 years ago!
