Back combed hardship

By: Devon Delorme
Posted in:
So I don't usually write a dread blog but I need feed back. I have had dreads for about 3 years now. I created them by back combing ! Eek !!let me tell you about blood and tears and worries... So three years ago I had a huge fro my hair is thick curly Course hair I'm malado and my dad also has dry frizzy Scottish red hair kinda like carrot top. My mom has fine curly hair. I feel my hair is a combination of many types of hair from thick and frizzy to smooth and silky its hard to explain but I will post pics later. Anywho I was always told by people to get dreads so one day when I was sick of maintaining my hair I sought out to get dreads. First couple videos on you tube told me to back Combe and palm roll . It worked and my dreads were in after a week and 3 combs later. It was hours of pain and stress. I did them all my self and they worked minus the fact I combed them all 3 times over to make them tight. It was hard and every three months or so I maintain by root rubbing. All this work has paid off cause now I've been told by many people that my dreads are the nicest they have seen. The only thing I want to change is to stop having to do the roots and hope for them to lock on there own selves. And as I look back I wonder how they would be today if I used the natural method? Would the be aesthetically pleasing as they are today would they be bigger or thinner? I'm wondering if neglecting them now would keep them growing and locking at the roots. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions?

Well thanks guy I've stopped using wax 3years ago does it still affect my dreads now in the locking processes ? They have already been dreading with out wax for 2 1/2 years now so the wax is only on the 4 inch ends of my dreads. Does it matter now?

you can buy the wax b gone from and then just neglect your dreads, the time will heal all the damage you have done to them.

In the end you will be proud of them

you used wax the wax must must must be removed to dread properly without force to imintate dreading rubbing rolling working on them to imitate what would occur naturaly

now to the untrained eye u can force a dread to look "perfect" but they are far from it they are damaged stiff sticky and nopt truly dreaded just glued together with wax

so mine i get told are the best in the world i never did a thing i never waxed rolled..b]nothing..pure natura;

you can imitate dreading with wax and brute force but theres nothing like the real thing they always look better when as natural ass possible

remove the wax and u will see

Yes, your roots will lock on their own. Just stop rubbing them and it begins. Your hair will grow out a bit first, just separate regularly, wash regularly and they'll be fine. You will have some loose growth, up to a couple inches, that's perfectly normal. Over time, with movement they'll knot up. It's healthy to have loose roots, so expect to always have anywhere from 1/4 inch to an inch of unknotted roots. Don't beat yourself up about back combing, either. You have beautiful dreads now, that's what matters. I back combed as well, every now and then I wonder what my dreads would be like of I'd let them grow naturally, but I get over it lol. I love my dreads, my loose hairs, my bumps and messy bits. It's what makes them unique! Your dreads are just that, yours!
