About dreads and crochet hooks


Dreading Methods

username1234: I'm in need of some advice i started dreading by backcombing about 4 months ago and I used a crochet hook on some of my knots but just once will they still eventually dread up I enjoy letting them do their own thing other than separating them and would hate to start over. I dont think my wife could take it.

Hey! Don't worry, your hair will dread! The less you have used the hook, the faster it will dread. So don't use it again in the future. Only wash 1-3 times a week with a dreadlock friendly shampoo and separate regularly, that's it! Crocheting brakes a lot of hair and causes severe damage by longtime using. The stiff crocheted strands take forever to dread proper. Hair needs to move and to be clean to dread right up. Feel free to ask questions and post some pictures of your dread journey!

Hello from NJ


Introduce Yourself

Welcome and good luck on your journey! Your hair is beautiful and might progress fast. Keep an eye on separating, it could get a challenge in the beginning. Wish you a good start!

Help mold?


Help! Save My Dreads

I think the wisest response you could get is from Soaring Eagle, but he's on a trip now i guess. I would use the Rot Knot for now and wait till he's back an can give you an answer. It's scary that you can catch mold so easy like you have told. I wish you the best and don't cut them or comb them out!!! Maybe you could ask Panterra Caraway via Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/panterra1). She's a member on here and a professional hairdresser with dreads, she might have a tip for you.

27 year old dreadlocks maybe too long now


Member Journals and Timelines

that's why you came back earlier, huh? It must have been uncomfortable with damp locks for so many days...

Glad that you are back healthy!

seborrheic dermatitis dreadlocks


Help! Save My Dreads

I have read on Wikipedia that it can be treated with Apple Cider Vinegar rinses after washing. Diluted 1:1 with water. Sunlight is also helping to reduce the symptoms. But i guess you need to ask an expert for this tricky question. Panterra Caraway is a member on here and she is a professional hair dresser. She might know an answer to your question. On her profile page here is also her facebook link. Feel free to ask her, she is very cooperative!

seborrheic dermatitis dreadlocks


Help! Save My Dreads

How were your dreadlocks made, in a salon? How often do you wash them and what shampoo do you use? Do you do any sort of maintenance like crocheting, palm rolling or so? Have you ever tried to rinse with cold water after a wash?

getting new dreads with old dreads


Dread Maintenance

dreadlocksss: i made them with the rip and twist method. and what i mean with making new dreads is, if i want to make new dreads on my sides for example is that a good idea when having old dreads. because i have heard from a few people that you should not make new dreads when you have old dreads for whatever reason.

It seems to me that you should not listen to those people for any tips about dreads. New dreads form underneath old dreads anyway, that is a total normal process which nature does when you don't comb your hair, so why would it be any bad to let your sides dread, when long enough? They might look different in the beginning, while young, but when they mature, they will look the some like your old ones.
