Dreadlocks almost always look thinner when they are babies. When they mature, they take on the size of the section. So they will probably be much thicker than they are right now when they mature.

I am a huge fan of fat locks. Some of mine have 2 inch sections. But most people don't want them that big. I'd recommend combing the biggest ones out and make them into smaller sections.

Can't stop fiddling with my hair :(


General Questions

I've got stretched lobes. I just play with the earrings I have in. Sometimes I pull on them to try and stretch them a bit more to the next size

We do love you too.

Products wouldn't help anyway. They would help make you're hair look like locks. But most would either completely prevent them from locking, or just add harmful residue to your hair which would be a pain to wash out and may cause mold and mildew to grow.

Follow your heart. Don't put anything in your hair you don't want there

Loosey Goosey


General Questions

Those loose hairs will get sucked into other locks or form their on. They are essential for healthy locks.

And don't palm roll at all. If you do it enough to see progress, you will destroy your locks

What's been the hardest part of your journey?


General Talk

There are plenty of cute things you can do with locks. Braids, twisting them together, buns, buns that let the tips of your locks stick out in a spiral. Different wraps. There's a whole post about updo's for locks around here

Just leave them be. Well, the one on the side looks like it may be pretty big. Look at the size of your sections. That's about how big the lock will be when it matures and grows out. Typically you don't want them to be bigger than 1 inch. If you do like fatter locks, join the club. I have a good detailed post about how to take care of fat locks.

If you don't want fat ones, separate a bit more of them into smaller sections.

As for washing everyday. In the beginning it wont hurt. But you really should get into the habit of washing them every other day to every 3 days. When they mature, they will hold water for a long time Up to 24 hours for fat locks. Around 5-8 for thinner ones. If you wash every day, you may be getting locks wet again that haven't fully dried. This will cause mold and mildew to grow. Eventually leading them to rot. They won't have an issue right now. But in a few more weeks you may start entering that time when you could have problems. They are doing great and moving along nicely.

lol. Give it away. You don't need it now. If it works, someone will be glad to have it.

I get not running through your hair with your fingers. Try grabbing a section and flipping it backwards, over your head. Like you would with long hair to get it out of your face. When they are mature and long, this will be so much fun cause they'll weigh more and kind of thud against your back. Plus it keeps your hands busy and not combing through your hair

Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

You could always tie them back in a ponytail. I love to tie mine up in a bun when it's hot out. It takes them off of your neck.

To make them professional look, ponytails are great. Buns are just as nice. If you want a really cool looking ponytail, check out Jesusfreedmysoul's video. I used it for my wedding. It's kind of hard to explain, but unbelievably easy to do. You split your hair down the middle, and twist them then tie them together with a wrap or a loose hair tie.

Anything else to do while doing neglect dreads?


General Talk

The less you worry about your hair the more you become you, a person who just so happens to have locks. Instead of that guy-with-locks.

That's why I always try to recommend people take down and cover up their mirrors for a few months. If you can't look at yourself every day except in car windows and your shadow, you will be much happier with the progress just by the feel of them
