Most dreads migrated to one side of my head


Help! Save My Dreads

The best picture I could get of the matting is the back of my head where it's pretty much just pushed all the dreads to the left side/top of my head. We've been trying to start at the front as we just can't find a place to start separating in the back cause we don't actually know what goes where anymore.

its the connected hairs between them that need to disconnct and yes that takes breaking a few hairs.. but between dreads not inside dreads



Sorry I just saw your response now, didn't get an email for it like usual. So when hairs break its okay if it's between the dreads as long as it's not inside the dreads themselves?
We have been trying to separate them for a while, but every 3-4 hour session of separating only frees one or two dreads cause my girlfriend tries to be careful and not break any hairs. I have tried to get pictures of it but my hair color is super dark at the roots and with my texture of hair I can't even see to the roots below the dreads cause I don't have very good lighting. I'm gonna try messing with my light's setting since I do use smart lights, and see if I can get them bright enough to see anything.

Lumps and loops have turned to stubs

have hey combined is the sectio n thick a the roots



I don't really know what you said there, but I don't think any of them are combining with each other, they're all thinner than I thought they'd be, but I like thinner ones anyhow lol. The ones that seem thick and short also have thin roots, about the same as the others around it, but one of them after about an inch it just puffs out wildly with nothing but what feels like loops looped with other loops, literally sticks straight up on my head.

I know they're supposed to be different lengths, but it seems weird that it's like 10 times shorter than the others with how long my hair was.

Okay awesome, I was worried I was gonna have a few dreads that are double or triple the thickness and super short compared to the rest when they're matured. Right now one of them just kinda sticks straight up like alphapha and it started worrying me. Thank you for the help!

Most dreads migrated to one side of my head


Help! Save My Dreads

In the first 2 months I didn't separate every day, I did it like once a week because I had just graduated hs and was being kicked out of my house so I had to find a place to live and couldn't properly care for them, along with moving and packing and all that crap. In September I started separating every day/every other day but not for very long sessions, and last month I started doing 2-3 hour sessions of separating. I tried to separate after showering when they were wet but it sounded and felt like a lot more hairs were breaking when it was wet and my girlfriend said it was harder to separate them wet, so we stopped that. I really don't want to comb them out as most of my dreads have a lot of progress, it's just the roots that are super screwed up. For all I know they could not be dreading and i just think they are, cause they feel like dreads in most areas texture wise, but they look like what a mad scientist would that got struck by lightning (like in cartoons and movies) if that made any sense.

The super short ones are 3-4 times the thickness of every other one, so it seems like it doubled or tripled up with itself, so would it still gain length if its dreaded to itself?

Most dreads migrated to one side of my head


Help! Save My Dreads

When starting my dreads they were all sectioned (one inch blocks, staggered), and they were pretty even on each side. However now they're about 4 months old and I have 7 dreads on the right side of my head and 20+ on the left side. I've been trying to do 3-4 hour sessions of separating the roots every day or every other day (my girlfriend does it so it depends when she has school and work) and it just seems to do absolutely nothing, the left side is matted like crazy at the roots and i don't know how I'm supposed to get them separated cause after separating for 2 hours she's only able to get like one or two dreads free and by the time she does 3 or 4 more dreads over the next few days, the ones she did first just go right back to how they were. I also only have 2 dreads on the back of my head and originally there were atleast 6 (I don't remember how many I had total at the start) so it seems like most of them moved to favor the left side of my head, which makes showering hell because of how heavy just the left side of my head is. When separating she does it carefully to try not to break as many hairs as possible too. Anyone have any ideas on how to get them where they're supposed to be? I'm out of ideas and it seems like every day they look worse.

I have a few dreads where they have so many lumps and loops in the that they are no longer a foot and a half long like the rest of them, but rather about 4 inches long and pretty much stumps on my head. I was told I think 2 months ago to just leave my hair alone, so that's what I did and now they seem completely f*cked. My dreads are about 4 months old too.

Why are dreadsocks bad?

@femalepheromones Were they like fully crocheted, as in that's how they started? I started mine with twist and rip and used crochet to bring in stray hairs, but they weren't crocheted super tight or anything, just to get the stray hairs through the correct dreads in areas where 20+ hairs like fell out of it and were constantly going into the wrong dreads halfway through the length of them.

@soaring-eagle (You seem to know a ton about this so sorry for so many sub-questions) How short do you mean by short dreads? My hair before dreading was about 1.5 ft long, and right now they're about a foot long, i want them to be about shoulder length, so 7-8 in I'd assume (from measuring from my shoulder to above my ear) so would those be short enough? Also do you think they'd shorten that much on their own or will I have to trim them? I should have cut them before dreading because this super long hair bs is annoying me (I've had hair past my shoulders for the past like 5 years on and off). I know I'm a bit far from the original question I asked, sorry. But I have some super short dreads I'm really confused about, there are 2 that are on the top of my head that are about 4 inches long and it seems like it just doubled up on itself, but the original length of those hairs were my longest so I don't understand how those are so short and everything else is so long, should I be separating them from themselves as well as from the ones next to them? I knew about the loops and everything, but it seems really excessive on those 2. I'll try to get some pictures if you want them, but it's pretty hard for me to get a steady picture, let alone somewhere I can't even see.

I actually like dreads that look stiff, cause when doing different styles with them, like how trippie redd puts his hair up, it actually like sticks up and looks kinda like spikes, and that's about the style I wanted once they mature.
