How long did it take for your locs to mature completely and what method did you use?


Dread Maintenance

I'm really hoping that I eventually have some baby dreads forming. I only have 25 right now, 2 of which are tiny, and I really almost wish I would've started out with more. I started all of mine through backcomb, so maybe shrinkage will stop more quickly than that.

I used a few methods to start my dreads. I back combed a few. I left a couple in braids to knot up. I went to a gathering and had a few TnR done. I left the whole back of my head to dread naturally. I also have tons of baby dreads that have knotted on their own all over the place! It took my hair over 2 years to stop shrinking. That is when I feel that they were mature. In my experience the back combed hair became solid dreads quicker. The neglect ones took longer. After a few years it became difficult to tell the difference between the methods.

The fact that you didn't give up when you faced problems with mold and shrinkage and you kept going is so inspiring, seriously. Obviously facing all of those issues and sticking with it has paid off. Your dreadlocks are gorgeous, congrats.

Thank you for your input! I'm definitely looking forward to maturity, though I'm not in a hurry. I'm really enjoying the experience and love everything that it has taught me.

went natural no maintenence and it dreaded fast very fast how long tho who can say

1wst off i pay no attention to time 2nd time distorts over the years my dreads are 24 years old the 1st 5 years coulda been a couople months from the way perspective makes it seem looking back

when your waiting on something..or in a hurry 10 minutes can seem like such a long time but when your enjoying yourself liuke at a drum circle or a gathering 5 hours flies by so fast

when youlook back over years and decades years seem so short

times really meannigless

how long it takes to dread doesntmatter whatsoever only your perception on how long it takes..and thats largelky up to you

you can choose to bedlieve its taking forever or you can mArvlke at how fast it happens

howver diferent methods do make a diference

althpough manysay natural takes the longest often its actualy the fastest

they say crfochet gives u mature dreads in a day but the reality is it drasticly delays maturity ..making them take twice as klong or more to mature

the less of a rush your in the faster it seems to happen so let it happen at its pace and dont expect it to be done by a due date and you'll be surprised by how fast it goes by

Judgement and Stigmas


General Talk

Wow, I really wanted to go to the rainbow gathering but my car unfortunately stopped running the day before I was planning to set out. I really wanted to go, I bet it was an amazing experience. I remember people saying that there had been a Mormon's girls camp somewhat near there and they moved it in fear of their safety. Some people were very open to it, but Utah County is vastly different than Salt Lake County. But the rainbow gathering is all about coming together; I wish I could have attended. Really though, when you come to accept yourself, the opinions of others will no longer matter.

we had a rainbow gathering as close to salt lake city as any gathgerings ever been to any city

the governor of utah came out on horseback to join the gathering

and the head of the mormon church declared the rainbowe family the "lost tribe' of thier prophesies

judgement might have beenthere but yoiu shine your light and u overcome it

I live in Utah County, which is a completely Mormon state. I get stared at all the time and people definitely pass judgement but I have learned to not care about what other people think. Don't let it get to you. I work at a great full-time job and I wear my locs down all the time. Just believe in yourself, be confident. People will see your confidence and they won't give you shit for it. It's kind of hard at first having them and you're getting all this unwanted attention but you'll get used to it and you'll learn not to care. As long as you love them, keep them. Don't worry about other people's irrelevant opinions.
