To be honest you won't have to "re-dread" you just said it yourself your hair wants to dread s9 once you comb them out stop using conditioner and start using dreadlock shamppp 2-3 times a week and your hair will be dreading itself in no time at all.

Also have a look around at pictures of people with dreadlocks and you will see very quickly that yours don't look normal.

why redread it you already said it was dreading before you dreaded it all you didn't do was separate them so they wernt 1 big matt.. as soon as you comb tyem out if you dont use conditioner they will already be dreading then separate them so they form individual dreads

@frednickler It's been 4 months since you posted this. What did you decide to do? Your hair is absolutely perfect for going the Freeform/Natural route! I'm angry to see that the "loctician" mutilated your head like that, and took your money for doing it. I hope things are going better for you now at least.

Hey everyone,

I have had my dreads for 1 week now, but the last couple of days (especially today) have been tough, I'm not happy at all with them and even had thoughts of cutting them off!! Well, It wasn't a very good for me.

Background: I got them done by a person, who is supposed to be trained in making dreads, and paid to get them done.

PROBLEMS:

1) SECTIONS: Apparently for unknown reasons she divided the head into a uniform grid rather than a bricklayer kind of thing and the result is there is a lot of white spots where the scalp can be seen.

Will this problem be minimised in the future once the locks get fatter?

2) SIZE: I think the sections are too big. I haven't measured them, but I think they are 1 1/2 inch and the dreads are too thin at the moment. With sections this large, I expected the dreads to be fatter from the beginning. I have 33 dreads now, but thought would have a few more as I seemed to have a lot of hair.

Will the dreads thicken up to roughly the size of the sections? If so, how would they thicken if the hair is already trapped into the dread?

When you look at my head, there are a lot more sections than dreads, you know?! I was expecting that the dreads would cover a lot more area, rather than having all these sections and scalp visible. Is this normal at the beginning???

Please, share your thoughts.

I have been wanting dreads for AGES really, maybe 20 years and now I'm feeling so bummed and sad that I'm not even enjoying them anymore. It is a disaster!!

Thanks.

Best to wait for Soaring to next come online and he will give you some links to problems with crocheted dreads and what you can do about it but take it from someone that went through the same thing. I ended up combing them all out and was so much happier. I would definitely think about combing yours out.
