So my mom came across this site after I had started to get dreads, she and my friends had both tried to backcomb my hair on different occasions, about a day apart. But they weren't locking up. Some of my friends think I should use wax, which I now know I should steer clear of. But I can see why, it would be nice to have dreads in a day, or a few months even. But now my backcombed hair is at least sectioned out thanks to my mom. It clumps together in the sections still, about half a week later, and two days without rubberbands. But I have pretty straight hair, just a couple waves a the bottom. It was about a foot long, give or take an inch. I guess I just want an estimation of about how long it usually takes for a person with half-ass backcombed hair to have real, tight, dreads? I'll probably post a picture or two in a day or so. And if it matters I always have it back in an elastic headband my friend gave me, would this slow how long it takes to lock-up?

Actually, they're not identical... you pay more for the "measuring handle!" Knottysleeves said:
I love how that "head honcho" gets pushed all the time. How is it different than a $1 rubber hair pick you can get at any drugstore? And he'll tell you the $5 DHHQ "dread comb" is better than the $2 metal flea comb you can get at any pet store... even though they are identical.

But, you know, it MUST be better because it has the DHHQ logo on it... riiiight.

I feel bad for the peeps that got a bad start from misleading and damaging information. I had bought the Knotty Boy kit after many months of researching and their site appealed to me a great deal. DHHQ was just too.....pushy for me and I coulnd't understand JC's videos. Very hard to watch visually. Anyway, as I was waiting for the kit to arrive, I found this site. Honestly, at first, I thought it was just a bunch of people saying "down with corporations" and such....But after going through all the forums, I began to realize that just about everyone here has gathered for the sake of saving people from harm of using wax and so forth. Well, I got the kit, backcombed (which I'll never do AGAIN..damn that hurts) and just let it be. I guess I just wanted a jump start on the process. The container of wax is sitting, lonely, at home and I have thoroughly enjoyed just letting my hair do it's own thing. THANKS TO THIS SITE!By the way...I have found a new love affair of driving on the highway with all the windows down and letting my babies go wild in the wind. FUN!(Now in my 2nd week).

OMG, I was infuriatingly pissed when I got my wax and shampoo. A friend of mine told me to get some wax and shampoo from the site but when I did, like 'Knottysleeves' mentioned the first couple weeks I was happy they looked dreaded. Only thing was they weren't! The wax kept them together but only if I used a lot. And even a couple wouldn't twist into each other because of the wax. My bill came up to 35.48! Down the drain. I shaved my head today and decided to start over. Fool me once...

they can fool most people once.. a few people twicebut the majority of their customers then speak out against em thats just not good thats when u either do as jonny (and the tobacco industry) did and lie about the harm for years or u do the ethical thing and discontinue the harmful products.

I just started my dread journey 7 days ago via the Dreadhead HQ kit. It was a horrible experience, it took 4 days to backcomb all of my hair. I applied the wax on the 10 dreads finished the first day, but haven't applied it to any of my other dreads, because now my scalp is super itchy and has greenish crystals forming on it. Sorry to gross anyone out but I really need some advice about this. I've washed it twice now with the Dreadhead HQ Shampoo, and my head feels fine for a few hours then starts to itch again. I don't want to have to comb all of these dreads out and start over but I"m not sure what to do now. HELP!!
