Putting beads on flat dreads


Dread Accessories

Yep, my thoughts exactly. I made a few from bamboo because I change my mind a lot. 

I have a question - is it safe to separate everyday or every other day? I find if I don’t check them everyday after a few days they start to form early congos. It’s taken so long to see much progress but now all the loose hair has suddenly started dreading insanely quickly and it’s taken me off guard

Putting beads on flat dreads


Dread Accessories

That’s cool, I’ll try and do that with some of mine. I’ve been looking at head sizes and just assuming they will either be too big or small instead of really trying. I have had some beads in but all of them eventually fell out in just under a week. I found some metal coils and thought they looked just the right size and they seemed to stay in a while but if I shake my head too heavily after the shower they just fly out

No, I actually don’t mind flat dreads and think they look better in some cases because it looks far more natural. I’m just trying to find ones to decorate

Some of my future dreadlocks are definitely going to be more flat than round but I would like to put something on them. 

If I squash it into a sort of round-ish shape to fit into a large bead or something would it cause any problems?

A9AE3D9625F84595AC5AB83AB223FC18.pngI finally got around to taking a photo of the back of my hair LOL.

Do dreadlocks normally start on the bottom layer of hair? In this photo, you can’t see the knots right at the bottom but you can feel them a lot. All of those long, thin wavy-curls, they actually feel “knotty” to the touch, it’s just not visible yet.

I always thought the back was one of the quickest places to dread but it seems to be the slowest for my hair.

Natural dreadlocks, from day 0


Member Journals and Timelines

TashTash: @aquaguy - Thankyou 😊 How long have you been going for? I saw your photos in your forum post and I can see a couple well developed looking dreads in there. I have good sections but my tangles are loose, like I could easily pull them apart (hence why I had to tell my Mam to stop playing with them 😂) the front of my hair will start to section itself up and I’ll get excited and then in a day or two it looks like I’ve brushed it 🤦🏻‍♀️ It’s still progress though, if it knots and unknots eventually it’ll knot in a way that it won’t be able to come undone! Just don’t get discouraged, your hair will look awesome in time 😊

That will happen for a while yet, once it stops untangling and re-knotting you’ll quickly notice locs forming, and fringes quite often tend to be the last to dreadlock, and haha my Nan sometimes does that with my hair too.

I stopped brushing bothering to comb it about 7-8 months, not sure exactly. I thought they would progress a lot quicker when I started but I was so scared of unknotting any tiny knots I was shying away from washing my hair too often which just made it greasy and less likely to dreadlock haha, but I learned that it will be constantly unknotting and knotting for ages so since I stopped caring about that it really started to progress.

I actually have TnR’ed a couple because I wanted to experiment but kind of wished I’d have left it alone.

If I added essential oil, only a couple of drops, to the salt water spray, would it negate the effects of the salt water on the hair?

Some better photos. Just sprayed some salt water on them. They still look more like curls than anything though, I think.

Wow. They are looking awesome, and after such a short amount of time as well. They re going to turn out amazing. :)

I wish mine were going as well as yours, but it’s a journey. It teaches you how not to care about people’s opinions and just be yourself.
