Anyone have a "Dread Net" on your scalp?


General Questions

My mom has a friend that had dreads once, and she was telling me about this dread net that formed on her hair

She has a different hair type then me, it's pretty curly. Mine's fairly straight, with some random curly Q's and waves.

She said that a dreaded "net" formed all on her scalp, kind of like wearing a hairnet when your bald would be (except she had dreads on top) Her husband would go through and cut the net so it forms borders tween the dreads again


Has anybody else had this dread net? I'm hoping not to get something like that, it sounds itchy :P

Just not locking up


General Questions

No man, hair is a part of you and your body, don't ever cut it n throw it away, it's like throwing you awayWhat kind of hair do you have? Like curly or straight or what? An also, what kind of shampoo?Try wrapping a few of them, after working on them, in embroidery floss or dental floss, and leaving it in for a month or so. That's been working really well for me, and it looks pretty sick :)Good luck man

Wet or dry?


General Questions

you should towel dry or air dry it first, hair dryers make it hair all fuzzy and staticky for a lot of people. I backcomb and it works great for me, takes patience, so make sure you have lots of it!But with a good dedicated friend or two and a couple movies, you'll have it started off in no time. Backcombing kind of hurts though, but you get used to it :)Good luck brother! I just started mine semi-recently too, message me for questions if yah want!

need advice on combing out dreads!


General Questions

ooh coloring :( Was it one that was specifically for dreads? I've heard a lot of hair coloring chems make your dreads brittle and cause them to fall apart like that...So sorry for your loss, better luck next time hopefully!

is this a good shampoo?


General Questions

looks good nough to me mana good rule to go buy is to make sure you can read the ingredients. If you know what it all is, and it ain't abunch of chems and crap, then it should be safe. Beware of things that say "natural" cause a lot of things i've seen, after lookin in the ingredients, is really full of crap I don't want near my dreadies. Dr. Bronners is a good one that I use, I buy the bar soap though cause it lasts longer and it's a lot cheaper, 4$ for a bar that's lasted me months.peace

Wrapping/binding dreads


General Questions

I used dental floss, ha ha haembroidery floss works just as well, same with tons of other things! I just use dental cause it doesn't get destroyed too easily with my hairNah not bad for them at all, just make sure they're dried all the way b'fore you go to bed, always worked with me. A good way that ive figured out is sticking your head out the window when someone else's driving.... ha ha ha, probly looks funny to people walkin out there, but it works, and honestly it's kinda fun ha ha ha :)Make SURE you post pics!

My dreads are coming apart!!!


General Questions

don't worry about it :) I freaked out at first ha ha still kind of freaking about it too even though I know it's supposed to be doin thatIt's kind of funny, once you make them they look amazing and perfect, huh! a month or so later they're all comin out and getting crazy and natty, everyone kept asking if I was taking them out and tellin me to fix em up. I spent hours of unneccesary work on my hair, ughh it wasn't fun fretting so much! I just learned to let it do it's own thing. You're dreads will feel so much more natural on your head once they figure out where they want to be!Peace!
