Congos?


Dread Maintenance

I now separate mine everyday.Since they're new, I'll probably do it less when they mature. I separate mostly while watching movies, but I read on here that it's best to separate after washing them. I guess it's easier and more effective?

I do have a question of my own though; Will separating really prevent my dreads from getting all mashed up? On my last set of dreads, all I did was just wash them,and never did anything and I remember how much I hated the ones in the back.They mashed into my new-growth, but I'm assuming this is cause I wasn't separating. Even my mom would comment on how it looked,and I never got compliments on them. I have gotten quite a few compliments on my new set of dreads,and even I like 'em better. :D

Alright. Thanks a ton. Do you think now I should stop twisting all together? Not even with the locking gel from dreadlockshampoo's website?

That makes perfect sense, but doesn't the hair texture have any sort of affect at all? I have afro textured hair.

On my last two sets of dreads, my newgrowth especially in the back, started to basically mash into my dreads and it was just one big mess. Plus, I wasn't separating either. Even if I were to 'leave it alone' and separate and wash, the same thing would still occur. The neglect method doesn't work for me,and I'm so afraid of twisting,because I can't tell when it's too much. I read that if you twist and you feel a little sting,then it's too much or something. Palm rolling won't work either,especially since my dreads are new,and I love them so far. They're much better than first 2 sets. I don't want to mess up again.

I just redid my dreads for the 3rd damn time,and now I'm trying to retwist them,and I know you all are going to say 'Leave em alone', but sorry, that didn't work. Tried that on my first sets and it failed. I have to retwist them, but I'm really afraid to. I've tried the clips, aloe vera gel,and other things. I'm afraid of the thinning, and I dont even know what to do now. If I leave them alone, the newgrowth will just keep growing and ruin my dreads again.
