sectioning and splitting dreads


Dreading Methods

wish I knew this 3 months ago. I also like how it splits like that as well. I have some decorated with one dread root with one color string, then the other another color. At the point they come together I mix both those strings down the one dread then end. It looks pretty cool.

lifestyle change


Dready love

I am only in my 2 month of dreads I find myself happier. Happy because I always wanted my hair this way and I'm more patient. I do not care that others think my hair looks messy and on most days I get more compliments on my dreads then negative comments. I find with dreads you kinda become a teacher as well, and it takes patients to tell person after person how proper dreads are formed and that you can take care of them. Having dreads definitely teach me something everyday.

Synthetic Dreads?!?!


Dread Accessories

Having them permanent I wouldn't recommend or paying so much to get fake dreads in. I personally love how natural dreads are and how they change every day and drive you crazy sometimes. However I like the way colored synthetic dreads look like and I sometimes put them in for Halloween. This is what I do though. I buy the fake hair online and make the dreads myself. then I tie the dreads to a hair tie and make a bunch like that so it looks pretty much the same. That might help you if you wanted to try something different that you can take out that won't ruin your natural dreads.

Suggestions on separating already formed dreads?


Dread Maintenance

Duly noted, thanks for the advice.

I find it easier toseparate right after i wash them. The few hairs that are holding the dreads together will break. Separating is often called popping or ripping because you will hear the hairs break. It is normal. It doesn't make your dreads weaker like the breakagecrochetdoes. If they are only a few months old, don't use conditioner to separate unless it is a solid mass. The conditioner will loosen the hair inside your dread.

If let be they will eventually becgome an inch thick and are starting to form congos in the back.

Kelly said:

There are videos on Babas page. But, you can separate from the tips or the bottoms. I hear that it is safer from the bottoms, and when done while hair is wet. How big are the sections in question? Are they congos or are they just single dreads that got too big?

I think I'll go at it by soaking them and using condit something. Might just have to bush most out then dread them again.

Danielle Hache said:

well by the time i noticed mine i had to rip them hard to get them apart ..as far as doing it more gently maybe put some conditioner in them to loosen the knots just in the specific dread your trying to seperate
