Want to re-do your dreadlocks?! I am Re-doing my 1.5 Year old Dreadlocks!

I have had my dreadlocks for about a year and a half now. And I have decided i wanted to start this summer off with a brand new set of beautiful dreadies even better than these! Mine are all different shapes and sizes some are a lot more dense and mature than others.

I have tried searching for advice on the internet and have had no luck! I refuse to use conditioner because I make all of my own stuff so I am strictly using oils to lubricate my hair. I have been using different butters such as hemp seed and almond butter. And various oils such as jajoba, coconut, and olive oil.

I am preserving my length and quantity as much as possible and what I have done is basically lubricate the hair and picked my hair apart. So far I have lost honestly barely any hair!

Many have said "if you brush out your dreadlocks your hair will be extremely short and fried you might as well cut it" "You're going to have to wait weeks before your hair goes back to normal" I have been growing my hair out for years now, and I can tell you my hair is down to my belly button undreaded and passed my breast dreaded up! So far undreading my hair.. It is stronger, longer, softer, and healthier than it has ever been in my life! After every dread I finish undreading I wash it with amazing dreadlock shampoo and my hair goes back to exactly how it was before I decided to get dreadlocks! Do not listen to people who haven't gone through these methods!

Coconut oil has been my best friend because it strengthens your hair while conditioning and causing lubrication between the knots. My advice to you is soak your dreadies in very very warm water, heat up your coconut oil and soak them and then either pull them apart or brush them. I refuse to brush because I want to lose the least amount of hair as possible!

PLEASE SHARE YOUR QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, AND STORIES!

I love you all and good luck on your dread lock journeys! <3

I am starting over due to a couple things. The main reason is my scalp keeps getting pulled on by baby hairs that are tight because I didn't section. I over washed them quite a bit which I also regret. They were twist and rip to neglect, which I will be doing the same thing over again with that. I will definitely section this time and take better care of them! :D

That is why I started over!!!!!! People REALLY need to be aware of the importance of natural sectioning. It is emphasized here, but I don't think people just starting out really get why it is so important. I ended up getting a lot of hairs ripping at the scalp due to forced sectioning on my t&r dreads. It became too painful, and nothing seemed to help except taking them out. I tried to alleviate the pain for 2 months and figured I was better off starting over, because they were only almost a year old. I want dreadlocks for the rest of my life, and I didn't want to live with ones so forced.

I started a handful of t&r locs this time around, but I let them section naturally first for 2 weeks. Also, most of my hair is left to dread naturally. Only the front of my head and a few on top are t&r.
