because of croching i will loose partly my dreads, sista, it would be unfair to give wrong advise, and let one use this way of a croching needle or and wax, without tellingits the pence how often and how strong your hair is, how the damage will be, as you want to have the dreads for live time, and have might dreads meters long, yeah the natural way is the only way :))i would use a hairband or a tam, to have them look nice, usually when you want the dreads you will get the raspect for keep on trodding, they always try to put you down, and hope you might cut your dreads, but the ones with long dreads can tell you, you will always find a way without cutting themit only make you stronger

i 100% agree with Jelly!Why do you have dreads if you are worried about how they look? that's so silly! Is anyone actually going to MAKE YOU take them out? If they have anything to say tell them its a natural process and if they have a problem with it then they can take it up with God. Really all of the effort that you have already put into them is just going to come out because dreading is it's OWN process that NEEDS to happen naturally... dreading really should not just be a hairstyle fad. why did you start locking your hair love?shaun saunders said:
i cant really just let mine go coz i have to go to school and work they dont mind as long as they look tidy but i got hair comin everywhere so just something that will pull the hairs back to look tidy'er

wow, what a bunch of impatient folk. If you want it done quick and neat go to a freakin' salon. Dreads takes MONTHS to YEARS to cultivate. i had fuzzies, too. Now they are getting long enough to start forming their own dreads- three years later. the more you "add" stuff and fuck with them the weaker they'll be and the longer it will take before you start locking your hair. You can mat it up with goop, crochetting, or rolling, but dreads grow from the roots. matted hair ain't dreadlocks in my book. dreads are the growth AFTER you mat, knot, tangle, braid, twist, or roll your hair.

but to each their own. so many ppl treat this like a fad.

i mean it's not really that unfair to tell the truth.. it IS becoming a fad! it's really unfortunate that someone spent 12 hours doing damage to your hair folicles. dreading is natural and doesn't do any damage at all.. it just comes together. there is no such thing as "starting" and "maintaining" dreads.. both of those completely defeat the purpose. if you are committing your WHOLE LIFE to a hairstyle.. then where is the patience that it takes to let them start on their own??Amber-Dawn Andersen said:
well now as a new sister to this , i must say that i think it is unfair to say that because we have so many questions we are treating this as a fad, some of us are just unsure of how to start and maintain healthy dreads. i for one, after 3 people took 12 and a half hours to do my dreads, really don't want to fuck them up!!!! i thought very long and even harder before committing my life to my hair and i want to learn all i can! i think it is great that i can turn to a site like this where i will find folks that have made it through the "fuzzies" and such:)

GO TO YOUR LOCAL NURSERY AND BUY THE BIGGEST ALOE PLANT THEY HAVE!!THEN!..pull all the fat pieces out and cut them open on the sides so you can open it up flat.Take a spoon and scrape all of the meat and jelly and water out of the inside of the plant and into a blenderblend it upstrain it through an old t-shirt and then wrap up all of the solid material in the tshirt and twist it up into a ball and SQUEEZE all of the extra water out.Dump this on your locks and wrap them up in a bag or a towel for the day or for several hours anyway..Then rinse well.. your hair will suck up this love and it will repair the damage probably done to your scalp by "making" your dreads in the first place.never use wax or chemicals.. they are the enemy of dreadlocks..hope this helps you!!

.. then where is the patience that it takes to let them start on their own??it is often so not the patience but the not knowing part, i also spent so many hours in backcombing and croching, and i done for free with a lot of love, as i thought that this was a natural way, i was such sure, because such common here, that it never came up to look at googletil the moment i noticed that my dreads are getting such thin, i knew something was wrong, took me stil a while till i asked meself that question, and at that moment SE came into my life with this dreadforum, seeeenit was always clear to me that by much and curly hair it goes natural, but yes by my kind of hair such style that i acutally never had to use a comb anyway, seeen, i thought, that for dreads you have to help the naturei cannot change the past, as i felt such unhappy that i backcombed and croched so many of my friends, but i can change the future, so that is why this forum and all of us is such important to reach and to pass on the right knowledge to those who wanting to become a dread

yes yes sister you are absolutely right..too many people are so oblivious to nature anyway, of course they would never think that nature can make our hair this way too!! Let us give thanks now for this forum and the knowledge coming with it so that we may move forward together not giving a damn about loops in our locks!! yaaayyy!!!dani said:

til the moment i noticed that my dreads are getting such thin, i knew something was wrong, took me stil a while till i asked meself that question, and at that moment SE came into my life with this dreadforum, seeeen
it was always clear to me that by much and curly hair it goes natural, but yes by my kind of hair such style that i acutally never had to use a comb anyway, seeen, i thought, that for dreads you have to help the nature

SE is right, they aren't helping you unless they get you a job on your terms. We all have choices and we never have to do anything that comprimises our beliefs or principles. I would rather make 15 thousand a year working for myself than 150,000 working for someone else.I may struggle at times but I'm a simple man with a simple mama that dont need much. I make my hours, I set my dress code, and I choose my customers.If you cant get a job that you love doing and that loves you back then make your own way. Cut loose the dead weight, the stuff you really dont need and it wil be much easier.soaringeagle said:
