i know haha ive seen so many ppl say "i had dreads before 5 times but everytime i got to a month they were really loose so i combed them out and started over i guess if they dont work this time im not meant to dread" ofcourse they didnt know that they almost always do that ..its perfectly normal and just waiting awhile would result in them dreading right back up

The original post was one of the greatest things I have ever read in my life, and SE, once my dreads tighten and become friggin beautiful, I will try to find a bead of an eagle so that when I look at it, I think "Hey, SE helped me with this :)"

this is so me spot on! i have so many questions andconcernsbut at the same time i know that i need to just chill and take it on day by day. today is the start of week 2 for me, so far i have looked in the mirror every day examining each dread not because im worried more because im amused. i can already feel my hair kind of matting about 3 inches below my roots and it makes me so so so happy! altho i do have lots of fly away hairs but i see them as soon to be dreads. when the messy look really starts to bother me i just throw my dreads up in a ponytail and the best part is, i dont need hair ties any more! i can use my dreads to tie it up! so great :) i love my babies and im SO happy i found this site. with out this site i would be so lost in questions andconcerns :))

I went to the bar for a little bit on Friday to have a few beers and to shoot some pool. Anywho I had an older lady come up to me and said "I love your hair and how did you get it like that". I told her to just wash your hair but to be careful of what you wash with and to throw away your hair brush. Then later on, some dude said "get a f'n hair cut hippie"! I said thank you but I'll pass!
Having short hair and constant bedhead any more doesn't really bother me much like it use to. My hair/dreadies have the good days and the oh my god my hair's a f'n mess but I don't care cause I know that in the end (in a few yrs once my hair gets longer) it'll all be worth it!

Hello, I've got few questions for SE...Why would you separate dreads if they start to grow together..? That should make them more fat and unique and you keep saying to let them grow, I can't aree more, so why should we do it? ...just asking :)And I'm just starting to grow dreads all natural but many times when I wash my hair it ruins the locks and I have to start again. What should I do?
