Beginner Dreader


Introduce Yourself

falling out is considered normal with T&R dreads. In time, they will knot up..

He does, and I've watched it and still decided to just pick and chose.. .-.

i would either let them section naturally on their own, or section them yourself. i think the random sections make it easier for congos to form, but i also don't think it's the worst thing you can do.

i am not an expert though! and mine were *so awesome* that i ended up taking them out.

I think lazy dreads has a video on the pros and cons of sectioning / not sectioning....

i think lazy said that if you didn't section, and are thinking about undoing them all to section, that it probably wasn't worth it. but he also said it's a good idea to section them (like a brick pattern)... so maybe better sectioning for the new ones you are starting?

also, i took mine out when i started, made more, and ended up taking them all out again.

it's heck of a lot easier to take them out when they are new... but it's still a lot of time... are you sure you need to take them out?

you'll need to separate those dreads from the loose hair frequently. could be daily, could be after just washing, it depends on your hair. just make sure you take the time to separate the hair you don't want in there from the dreads as much as it's needed.

but why don't you want to do your whole head?

Jen's Twist and Rip Timeline - RIP dreads... at 12 weeks.


Member Journals and Timelines

i think if i have bigger ones it might make things easier... like 40-50, not 20.

wrapping them could be a good idea. I was also thinking that some kind of scarf wrap on my head might help reduce the rubbing from the strap on the back.

the congo i'm taking out now is at least as big as my wrist (and it was even worse).. there's i don't even know how many tangled up in there! it's so uncomfortable and itchy.

i have a feeling as soon as i get this all brushed out i'm going to want to start again..

Crochet, 16 dreads, HUGE sections


crochet and dread tools recovery

i think they look like they would be uncomfortable to sleep on, especially once they lock up. they will be much easier to take out now then after they lock up back there...

Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Good luck to you!

The other day I saw my nephew for the first time since I started. He played charades to tell me to brush my hair... 10 year old punk! it is hard to hear stuff like that but just remember that while many people don't understand, or don't have the desire to understand, there are still plenty of people in this world that do get it. Come here when you need some support!
