Natural Dreadhead

Hi Everyone! I made a post about my dreadlocks (crochet) last year. And I did brush them out, which I think was the right thing to do. I have now been during the Neglect Method for 3 months and I feel great. This is truly the BEST way to go, no doubt about it. If you are on a spiritual journey to find yourself, throw your brush away, honestly. You will find yourself. It is truly an amazing feeling. I feel alive finally. This is what I've needed, all these years. The Egyptians believed that energy flowed out of their body through their hair, so they would let their hair begin to knot up. This caused the energy to stay within them because their hair kept it from flowing out. That story is so special to me and it is one of the reasons I wanted dreads in the first place. To conclude, if you are someone who wants to become one with nature, obtain peace and harmony, truly discover yourself, and feel positive about life then I strongly recommend this method and hairstyle. It's so important to me and my hair is my one true love and I see it grow more and more everyday. Plus, dreadlocks are like the sexiest things ever, who wouldn't want them? Peace Love and Weed my fellow hippies.

And I don't know how to describe it, but I lost sections of hair, not the entire strand from the root, but it broke and sometimes small, sometimes larger pieces of hair, like as if you brushed out a tiny knot from your hair and it broke off.

I too brushed my salon croche dreads out. Took me 3 weeks! But I learned a lot about myself during this journey and I have found it to be not only enlightening, but also spiritual. I lost a lot of hair where the hook made tiny knots. The only place my hair dreaded is at the roots! I did find that a couple in the back, HUGE ones, did dread, but I know the knots slow the process significantly! I was able to brush them out by following a pattern,squeezing them and rubbing and using a fork to pull tiny strands of hair through the larger knots, one by one; a suggestion by Soaring Eagle.

I can definitely relate to your story... I also had my dreads ''made'', but now I leave my hair be I feel more at peace :)

the Barrellady, Thank for you commenting! I actually did lose quite a bit of hair from brushing it out (which you couldnt tell because I have so much) but just brushing them out caused a ton of lose hair to drift down as I combed. The TERRIBLE part was the ferocious knot that had formed in the bad of my head (the reason i brushed out). My dad actually slowly ripped this knot apart getting a lot of hair loose, but eventually it was impossible, so we... cut it off. Yes, and we saved my lovely knot in a baggy. To answer you question about the hook and how I used it? I basically took strands of hair and squeezed them super tight between by thumb and pointer finger. Then I would stab the hair repeatingly starting from the root to the end.

Good vibes Cat, it is amazing what the journey does to our soul, I am happy you found your way. . I am curious, when you undreaded your crocheted hair, how much hair did you loose due to the hook and how did you use it?
