How is your hair supposed to be developing when you first stop combing?


General Questions

I just restarted my dreading journey and I'm only 3 days in. I also am going natural and have extra curly hair. basically I have a frizzy poofy mess on my head but it's tangling so quickly. :) so I just keep them clean and separate them as needed.

Twist and rip not working ?!


Help! Save My Dreads

tnr is pretty much designed to fall out. About 50-70% of mine did then the really dreading began when my hair wasnt stuck in goofy braids. JUst let them fall out and do their thing.

Afraid


General Talk

So......now that i've decided to dread my hair...i feel like a total chicken shit. I am currently in school and yea there are other people here with dreads but..idk. Last time i started with tnr so my "dreads" had some form to them and allowed people to get used to them gradually as they fell out and became a birds nest. lol. This time i am goingb naturally and my hair is already wicked curly and turned into a poofball from one night of sleeping on it. I AM TERRIFIED to walk out like that i rarely even wear my hair down for more than a couple hours cause it gets to fluffy. I need a boot to the ass to get myself going :/

Introduce Yourself

This is a reintroduction. My name is Jen I am 22 and currently live in Alfred,New York. I am going to school for veterinary technology and am hesitant to restart my dreads because of my career path. I had done tnr dreads last time but they came out too braidy. SO this time i am going natural. I have wicked curly blondish hair. I guess i just need some support in going thru with this decision. SOOooooooo HI! <3

I know :/ it's just the situation I'm in I can't keep them cleaned properly because I'm working around dust and dirt and shit. and somehow a ton of lint got meshed into them and it's super gross. they were coming along great too :(

soaring eagle said:

1srt off why are u taking them out? u will regret it unless its to start over due to wax/cxrochet

ok take a ton of cheap conditioner or olive oil soak em good

comb or brush out from thre tip up slowly and gently try using a sogft bristkle brush for the most part a comb for the tough spots

if u reach a point thats too tight to get out glob on more conditioner/oil and leave in overnight moving on the a new dread

it can take hours or days or more to remove em go slow and gentle

but think about it b4 u do

u will go into dread loss depression..its traumatizingt
