What are these ??


Dread Maintenance

Yeah, it's just matted hair. Sometimes some of the hair in locks lightens up compared to your normal hair colour. I have really dark brown hair. But when I started growing my locks, some of the hairs looked auburn compared to my natural colour. Don't worry about it at all. A few of my locks are even patchworks of different shades of brown.

It's hard to see from that far away in the pic. But it looks like a really tiny section that has started to lock sup and now weighs a bit more and has straightened out. Can you post a really close up pic of it? From far away it just looks like straight hair

Cut my dreads for a job. Now I have a job, and I want to grow them back again.


Dreading Methods

Like Rainbow said, every time you reTnR it, you set the progress back to the first day. It'll never progress past that.

hey will have to go through a messy stage in order to lock up. It's the natural progression of locks. I'd recommend you get a nice plain black tam, and wear that at work. It's professional, and will cover your hair ruing the messy phase. Plus tams allow for a general knottiness to form. It will need a bit more separating to keep them from congoing together, but it will help promote knots.

And never twist your hair. It causes traction alopecia, which leads to baldness if it isn't allowed to heal

hello all


Introduce Yourself

That was nice of you. But why couldn't you cover them, or just tie them back nicely?

starter knots sizes?


General Questions

no such thing as too small. But the smaller they get, the more you have. Sometimes when you have more than 100 locks, you get stuck in car doors and such.

It's easier to let them congo together than split them apart when they are mature.

How big are they?

starter knots sizes?


General Questions

When mature, they usually end up the thickness of the section. The biggest most people want to go is 1 inch sections. I wouldn't go bigger unless you really want it. Fatter locks take longer to dry and need a bit more care.

Just separate them into 1 inch sections or smaller

KnotLadys Timeline :) UPDATE.


Member Journals and Timelines

They look amazing.

I'd love to see a timeline of just the loops. I don't think anyone's done that yet. Good call

IS THIS LONG ENUF TO DREAD?!


Introduce Yourself

Like Ixchel said. I'd recommend just starting growing natural locks. Wash like you have locks now, and let them section themselves. As they grow, you will see them start to section themselves. Separate the sections if they start to grow together. If, in a few months, when they are longer, you want to use a starter method, you will already have sections defined to use

Hi, there!


Introduce Yourself

lol. He misses you.

Yeah I have Budgies. I tried for a long time to teach them to talk. No such luck. They are adorable, though. We have 2. And didn't know one was a girl when we got them (from 2 different places). So they lay eggs once in a while. But none hatch.

We don't own a TV, so we watch them for entertainment. They're better than TV. One is kind of slow. That's putting it nicely. He's pretty supid. So the other teaches him how to play with the toys we bring home by playing with them first and then bobbing up and down like she's excited to share

Hi, there!


Introduce Yourself

lol. I have parakeets and they only scream when I am in the room with them. They LOVE the sound of my and my wife's voices. The can't talk at all, but the chirp along to whatever we're saying.

You can google image search "Hard water in the US" there are a few maps with keys to tell you just how hard your water is. Just look for your state and what area of the state you're in. Check the geological survey maps if you feel comfortable reading them. Otherwise the basic 4-5 colour ones work fine too.
