Neglect questions/tips


Dreading Methods

Haha! best thing I can say is PATIENCE!! :P

Mine also took/are taking a long time. I've got significant dreading now, but still lots of loose sections. The first time I noticed a major change was when I flew and laid my head on an airplane pillow for the 16 or so hours. Yeah, that really caused a lot of friction. I wanted to bring home the pillow!! Not exactly sure of the material, but it was a bit scratchy (comfortable, but scratchy-good for dreading) haha!

then since, I've been on and off using a tightening spray (once or twice a week at most)

I also changed up my shampoo too. Lush Seanick bar. It has sea salt in it, so it's really good for knotting, whilst still conditioning.

PATIENCE! ;)

Possible soap/dandruff buildup?


Dread Maintenance

Sounds soo familiar! Except my tightness was due to the crochet hook (highly frowned upon on this site). I have just a few partials with that method, but I did neglect on the rest, hence the tightening spray. I found the spray getting on those matured dreads though and looking similar to your pics, but those usually wash out with the next wash. Still, I try to be careful spraying around those areas or just use the spray less often. btw, I use the Dollylocks brand (tightening spray and refresher spray, but honestly skeptical about the shampoo which is a different topic), but I only speak for myself. I believe SE will tell you to just go natural and just wash :) He's usually here daily, but I think he's off at the Rainbow Gathering for awhile. Not a big secret. As I said, he's on daily typically, so he'll be back and reply when he can. Meanwhile, I'll try to represent the best I can when I pop in. :)

Possible soap/dandruff buildup?


Dread Maintenance

is it lint?? I had like a single piece or two of lint once. I had asked a friend about this and was told it happens sometime and isn't always easy to get out, but my impression was that it was harmless.

Or, if it's definitely not lint, I mean, it also kinda looks like...well, two thoughts. I'm thinking sometimes I'll get that when I use tightening sprays...or it could maybe be hair tips poking out, like the hair follicle bits that fall off as your hair grows out.

Does it smell or is it greasy when you squeeze it through your fingers? I had residue from using soap (yeah, ignorance) in it and when I'd squeeze it through my fingers over it, I'd pick up the  smell/residue of the soap. That's how I knew. Sadly, I had to comb mine out, but others here might be able to help better. Actually, I've since heard of clarifying shampoos. I believe Neutragena has this.

Well, hopefully someone else posts because I'm no expert, but this has been my experience with daily interest and observation for almost 2 years. :)

9 months neglect video


General Talk

acidburn: Some have congoed up early on if they seemed very thin I just let them find there way and didn't seperate then they became what they are.

I've since let two congo. Not the ones I was talking about before, but another pair. As I said, (ithink) mine are naturally forming very thinly, so I like them more thick, like the congo. Yeah, wow! another 6months have passed and my neglect are finally starting to grow longer now. Yay!! But still, lots of loose hairs. It's mad! :D Um...yeah, well I believe we've been on a similar timeline, or no no, you are a few months ahead with some of your originals, but the rest. Well, I just find it so interesting comparing. (sorry, no pics on me, but take my word. I've got short little bitties, but they're fun hehe-random dreadlock thought ;) )

Alright, happy dreading! Hope to see ya around. Great set!
(again, as I said in the other post, check your profile page)

if i was to start over..


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I'd say shave. I've always wanted to do it, but never did it when I was brave enough. I'm a girl, so it's a little harder for me to go through with that. Yes, but I'd shave and then save my locks...

but I don't think you should start over. You've got a great set! Are you bored with it already?? I wrote something on your profile page too, fyi.

i can't believe I haven't commented on here yet! (or did I miss it??) Really awesome! And they've come a long way in a year+! And this is a good timeline to follow too. I also have the thin dreads. The certainly do thicken up, but I'll be curious to see if mine get quite as thick as yours. Have you done any congos?? I have two dreads right now that I am contemplating let grow together. Maybe it's not a congo in the traditional sense (two mature dreads joining at the root), but they are still significant enough to be considered two distinguished dreads matting together. Anyhoo, Really cool! :)

Should I be worried?


Help! Save My Dreads

logged in just to post on this thread. Those loops and bumps ARE awesome!!! I've finally got some of those going. Someone told me yesterday I could palmroll them out. Whaaat??!!! I wasn't even asking. I'm telling them that I really like the character too and have waited a year to see this happen! :D

So yeah, nice set! I wouldn't do a thing! :)
