Calling it quits


General Talk

Well I'm all brushed out now. Hated my hair  when it was dreading, hate it brushed out. Looks like I'll never be satisfied.

For those wondering, I washed about 2-3 times a week using Vicki's dreadlock shampoo. In my year of trying to dread my hair, I went through one of each of the liquid shampoos except the unscented one because where's the fun in that?

When I first started, i thought the sections dreading were too big, i let them undo themselves naturally and went freeform from there. Though they never ended up dreading again.

Calling it quits


General Talk

It's been quite a year. But after exactly 1 year, I've decided to call it quits and brush my hair out. I have a lot of regrets. Namely I wish I had sectioned my hair better, the summer I spent working in the fields wearing bandana and hat really didn't help, I never found out what method of washing my hair was the best or at what frequency, Still frustrated that only the back of my hair dreaded anything from my ears on forward literally looked like I was straightening my hair, I don't know if I'll try this again. I might only go a week before I decide I want to try again, it may be a year. I'm left feeling really dejected. I'm glad I was able to contribute to this site if I did at all. I tried my best to upload every week even though all the pictures look the same (partly why I'm frustrated). I hope it goes better for the rest of you, and I hope this site stays up.

That. Don't know how you don't find that absolutely irritating. I think i've lost like 15 of those little balls that just end up falling out and my hair starts over.

@femalepheromones i have pretty thin hair and really wanted that fluffy thick looking dreads look

@pantheri had so many of those end knots that eventually just ripped or fell out and pretty much started from scratch. I don't think I'm washing rihgt. I'm probably scrubbing too much. I try to flip my hair over to the front and try to let any loose hair run to the front since it seems most hair loss is coming from the back of my head, b ut any help or advice is welcome

@soaring-eagle i have shown him pictures of peoples damaged dreads from crocheted, i've showed him pictures of the inside of peoples dreads when they use watch or use non residue shampoo and he acknowledged all except crochet. It took forever for me to convince him to remove the rubber bands from his roots, he kept them on for about 2 months. He won't bend on crochet though. He claims and was told by a really popular dreads shop that as long as the person crocheting your hair is careful not to be too forceful, then you'll be fine. I try not to argue, his hair is his, mine is mine

@soaring-eagle both, crocheted mostly though. His dreads are not even a half the size of his sections. 

@femalepheromones it's not that I want a lot for bragging rights or whatever, it's just that I wanted dreads for the purpose of making it look like i have more hair on my head, so I figured more dreads would give that illusion

@panther do you have any techniques for how you wash/scrub/rinse your hair?

I really wanted to be at 40 plus. My twin brother has 37 and his sections are too big and too tight, too much space between dreads and look very scalpy
