Doing nothing to baby dreads that fall out really is the best way!


Dreading Methods

Hi all!

I recently reached the 1 month with my baby dreads, and I recently posted about one single dread that would not stay together. I fought with it but no matter what I did it did not want to dread. Last weekend, I noticed the dread came out completely after a wash. I stopped messing with it and within a few days I have noticed that the loose hairs have begun forming natural baby dreads! The one section of hair is now like 4 baby dreads! It's really so fun to just let them fall apart and become rebuilt better than they were! For about 3 weeks, my starter dread would not stay at all, but just a few days of being free has made more progress!! Now I have baby dreads forming all over my head. Some are dying, but they spawn new, better ones! At this point, I'm like "fuck it, do what you want!", and it's so freeing! Thanks for everyone who answered my post (and many other previous posts) telling me to just leave it and watch what happens. Amazing advice! Thank you guys so much, out of all the advice I've gotten from all over "just leave it and watch" is the only thing that has worked!

Can you not crochet again after initial time and be ok?

Thanks for the detailed response! I've decided not to crochet anymore and let them dread the way they want to!

Wrapping yarn around baby dreads that are insanely loose?


Dread Maintenance

What are your thoughts on wrapping loose yarn around a baby dread that is severely coming loose? I've heard that this may be a normal process for some baby dreads to come loose, but this one is kinda scaring me! Should I just leave it for it to dread in time? I heard somewhere that if you wrap loose yarn around the ends of baby dreads it can help it stay together. What are your thoughts?

Thanks for the response! So if I just hold out and let the loose hairs and frizz be, then they will eventually get sucked into the dreads and mature? I don't have to crochet if I don't want to? I've been reading about breaking hairs with the hook, and I'd much rather them mature on their on in time.

Dread Maintenance

Hey guys. So I got dreads last week using twist and rip and some crocheting (I can't freeform in my profession and get away with it easily) I'm very happy with the way they came out. Even though they are frizzy they are certainly changing over time! I was wondering, do I actually have to keep crocheting them in the future? Or will all (most of) the loose hairs get sucked in naturally over time? If possible, I'd like to continue with minimal maintenance, especially with the crocheting. I really don't mind the loose hairs and frizz (yet!).
