Trying to convince your parents to let you get dreads? Here's the PowerPoint that worked for me :)


Dreads in the Family

Well, what you can't see in my pics is that it looks like I have a bunch of locks, but I have really combined them into 12 bigger locks. I need to wait til those roots grow out a little more before I can do anything cool like that

Tidy dreadies


Dread Maintenance

mine are 5 years old, and I still have loose hairs. It comes from new hairs growing in and not yet locking or getting sucked into other locks. In time they will. But then more hair will grow in and take their place. after a while those loose hairs will be less noticeable.

But your locks look great. I wouldn't worry about them. When you look at yourself in the mirror, you are seeing yourself more closely and more critically than anyone else is likely to see you.

If they really bother you you could always tie them with a wrap to a lock nearby or put a bead over a lock and tuck the loose hair in with it. That'll help coax them into tangling with a lock.

Completely New To Dreading HELP


Dreading Methods

Patting it dry is ok, but not ideal. When they start to mature you can take the towel and wrap in around you locks and squeeze excess water out of them, but you wont have to do that until they are more mature. When you shower after a match or race/training, just tie them back and try to keep them out of the water. We're not saying not to shower when you get gross

flapping


Introduce Yourself

It fixes itself, but you know what I do. I sleep on the left side almost all the time too. So I just take my hair and pull it above my head and toss it over the end of the bed. The it's out of my way and I don't flatten that side of my hair out

Thoughts on bone and antler dread beads?


Dread Accessories

You're right. It is just another use for more of the animal that would normally go to "waste". Personally I think that it's not a waste as long as it doesn't end up in the garbage can. I'd bury what I didn't use. But go for it. I think you'll quickly get a feeling that you either do like having it there or don't Go with your gut on this

That's probably true. The fewer locks I have the neater the braid would look. I'd got 12 mature locks now and 4 more short babies growing in

I love the picture of the girl on the last page with her locks in a braid. If mine were long enough and thin enough I'd do something like that once in a while.

Good job

Parts


Dread Maintenance

Well if the roots are loose, then it's just a matter of a few weeks more, maybe a month till they start to tangle and that part will disappear.

gotcha. That's probably due to either them being too short, still. Or that your roots are too tight. How did you start growing your locks? When I first started mine, and had bands at the roots for a little while, I had that same discomfort on the front locks. As your roots loosen and grow out, that pain will go away

Something in the air


General Questions

Exactly. The salt water from the bay will help them form faster by drying them out. Humidity will slow the process down a ton.
