Possibly restarting


Member Journals and Timelines

I'm thinking the same thing. I have a massive matted mess in the back of my head and have actually combed out a couple of the dreads. I too started with backcombing and a little of TnR. I'm going away this weekend and am really thinking of combing them out when I get back.

I've seen on here to soak them in olive oil and or really strong conditioner. I've been able to comb out about 7 of my dreads just by pulling them apart and playing with them, however, mine are only a month old.

I wish I had gone natural from the beginning..... and found this site BEFORE I started.

Good luck! :)

It's a pretty big area underneath. I have a lot of hair, very thick.

Apparently I haven't been separating right. Mostly in the back, my hair is matted in a clump with about 5 or 6 dreads combined. There is about 2 inches from the root - the matted clump - then the dreads off of that.

How do I fix it? Do I cut it to separate them?

:(

Trying to find a middle ground with husband


General Questions

Okay, wow, I just went through this same thing with MY husband! I'm 51 and am in my 4th week of dreading! At first he hated the idea but he's finally warming up to them. I had a few days where I was questioning it myself, but once I saw here on this wonderful group that it's normal in the beginning... I feel much better.

Good Luck!!! :)

Acceptance


General Talk

Yes, he did take care of me during all of my surgeries and chemo and was very supportive. I've always had such a positive attitude and that really helped with dealing with cancer!! He's doing quite a bit better now with accepting my dreads.

Comb out dreadlocks or keep them, that is the question


Dread Maintenance

It's so good to keep hearing from people who felt the same way at times. I don't feel like such a mess! Thank you! :)
