If I comb it out, should I just leave the hair loose as it is? what if it just ends up trying to join neighboring dreads making them even fatter as well?
makes sense since i sleep on my back and don't move in my sleep.
i'm really on t he fence about combing out those two dreads with really big sections, they're pretty well knotted. i think they're my two most progressed ones, i tried splitting them again after showering today, it was
no go. theyre just too tight and i don't have enough pulling room
I already did. I found this site through a girl on youtube who went neglect. She cut her dreads off a while ago, but that was my first exposure to dreads immediately leading me here.
I wouldn't be able to comb it out. Since it's all halfway down, i'd just end up breaking that entire strand of hair from the hair on down.
how do you split a dread that's too big. I'm trying to split one right now that seems to have about a 2 in section but all I seem to be doing is tugging the root.
when he told me that they told him he should get maintenance between 3 to 6 months I told him that sounds like they're trying to get repeat business and he
went off on me telling me I don't know what im talking aobut
No, im not talking about hte hair line, I'm talking about the very top of my head anything from the crown forward isn't dreading at all. I don't understand why.
My hair is actually pretty thin compared to others, it's the reason I started dreading, or one of them at least. I got tired of seeing all that loose hair fall down the drain in the shower after conditioning
I went natural for bragging rights, and not overtightening at hte roots. My twin's dreads are pretty big sections and it looks like they tightened to the point where they might break at the root. He argues with
me that you are supposed to go get them maintained and crocheted for them to stay nice. I disagree. He berates me, but I tell him his dreads are his, mine are mine.
I'm no longer working at my summer job anymore.
I've been watching a ton of videos of other peoples dreads and trying to see if they all have a certain way they wear their hair, sleep, shower etc to see why mine isn't showing any progress but I've got nothing.
I'm really disappointed. It's been 8 months compared to other people I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm using dreadlocksshampoo and I use the sea salt himalayan spray by them. I wash 3x a week, sometimes 2x, when I'm really off, 1x a week minimum, I don't play with my hair at all, I just very very very very lightly brush it away from my face when I have to. I don't know what to do.
I haven't been satisfied for a good while. Anything in front or top of my head (bangs, top of head, above and around ears) is not dreading at all. You would almost guess I would be straightening my hair.
I'm also not sure on my sectioning. While workign in the fields, I was wearing a bandana and hat, not really paying attention to my hair since I was working so much and just passing out when I got home, I didnt
get to section or look at all the crazy matting on the back of my head. I have some really fat loops at the end of my hair while the middle and roots are straight and not dreaded.
Hello, I've just reached the 8 months timeline.
To be honest, I'm not very satisfied. Any and all advice is welcome.
I left a huge photodump yesterday on my gallery, go check it out.
