Did partial dreads, now I'm seeking some advice.

Ok, so after much thought I decided to do dreads. The bottom two rows are dreaded, and I have one dread on each side of my head by my ears. 14 in all. Having two separate care regiments for my hair is proving to be quite difficult. My babies are only like, 6 days old today and have just now started trying to eat each other. What can I do to keep them from eating my undreaded hair? I have been sleeping with it up and away from the dreads but sleeping with your hair up causes damage, and it's down right uncomfortable. Any ideas?

I plan on letting the rest dread... eventually. I just want to play with it a little bit and see what different things I can do before I do my whole head, ya know? On a side note: They seem to be knotting up really well, but I have about 3 inches of soft and silky root to deal with. From what I have read on this site, I should just let em be, yea?

That is not a bad idea at all. Braids are way better for your hair. Thanks =]

I don't have a ton of dread experience but if your looking to keep the rest of your hair away form the dreads instead of a ponytail you could try putting it into braids instead maybe?

Yes... I have read that. Although the way the girl did it was very gentle and I had minimal breakage. If not crochet, what should I do to maintain them? Back combing?

nooooo no msaintaining at all andto start them use yoir hands only twist and rip once u start the only maintenance u ever do is wash and seperate thats all

and never go to a girl to do them (i dont mean a female i mean if it was a salon or loctician) dread your own head with your own hands or ..better yet let your hair dread itself by keeping all hands out of your hair

Well she is not just a girl, hehe. She is a friend of mine, and has done dreads for a couple other people. I have seen her work and I liked it, she has had them herself =] I would not trust a random person to do my hair... especially when it's pretty permanent.

she used crochet so u should not have trusted her..she..had dreads..for how long? a couple months?

crochets very bad for dreads

so the rest of your head do yourself

the stuff shes done will take about 6 months on average to recover and begin to dread right

meanning if you tnr today the rest of yoiur head they will be very far along before the crochetted parts loosen up enough to even begin to dread

She had them for awhile. Like two years or so. They looked great too.
